*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather!
*** Current and precise weather conditions (METAR) and forecasts (TAF).
AeroWeather Pro provides quick and intuitive access to METAR and TAF for airports worldwide. Data can be shown in its original (raw) format or as fully decoded and easy understandable texts. AeroWeather Pro is helpful for weather preflight-briefings, but also to just get very precise weather. All weather data is cached for offline access. There are many settings for units and format of METAR/TAF available.
In addition to weather data, AeroWeather Pro integrates also airport NOTAMs (provided by US FAA), webcam images around airports (provided by webcams.travel), and US ATC delay information (provided by US FAA).
The app features a built-in airport database, which includes basic airport data like runways, sunrise/sunset, twilight times, timezones etc.
AeroWeather Pro now offers built-in groups for earthquakes, ATC delays (US only), nearby stations, today widget, and Apple Watch which can be individually enabled on the top level view. Besides creating user groups it’s also possible to put stations on the same level user groups. This might be useful for your most favourite airports or home base. Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. User groups can now be synchronized via Cloud Kit*.
METAR alert notifications* is another new and helpful feature to stay up-to-date. Define multiple alerts for each station with the following criteria: flight rule (US NOAA), wind speed, temperature, pressure, present weather, visibility, and ceiling (BKN and OVC). Notifications will be sent to your device if the criteria is met (e.g., when wind is greater/equal 10 kts, flight rule becomes IFR).
The AeroPix feature offers users the possibility to take quickly picture(s) of the weather at their current location. The pictures will be available to all other pilots (on the map or within an airport detail view) helping them to get a better idea about local conditions. AeroPix should be especially helpful when there's no or insufficient webcam coverage.
AeroWeather Pro comes with an Apple Watch app, which shows either a list of stations as defined in the Apple Watch group or all nearby stations based on the current location. METAR, TAF, and webcam images (if available and enabled in the Watch App settings on the iPhone) are displayed for each station. In addition, you can put AeroWeather as a complication in your watch face to stay up-to-date.
Please consult our web-site for a full description of all features.

Ratings and Reviews
Apple Watch issue
Love the app on the iPhone and iPad, however, the Apple Watch has always been hit or miss. After I finally got it to work on my Apple Watch, it quit working after the latest update. I have tried all the tricks...uninstall/reinstall app, power-down/restart devises, delete/reinstall airport in the widget. Very aggravating.
Ok. An update: after messing with it all day, I figured out that there is now an iPhone group that has to be selected in the configuration menu on the iPhone. Then on the Apple Watch, you have to press and hold the airport station to set your complication. Once I figured all this out, it works pretty cool. I even like the fact you can change from your iPhone list to all nearby airport on the Watch. I just wish there was a better tutorial...unless I missed it.
I really like this app, I have been using it for years both personally and professionally at work. The developers are very responsive, I have sent emails a few times and they always respond. Recently I suggested they add a barometric pressure trend arrow to the main report page (previously it was only visible when viewing station list) and I was quite pleased when they did.
I recently purchased an Apple Watch, and have been playing with that interface. It’s too early for me to formulate an educated opinion, but it seems to work. Had a couple issues getting weather to update on the watch but I believe I have it figured out now. Overall a great app, thanks for the quality product.
Widget does not work, formatting issues.
Old version worked flawlessly but the recent update has made the widget very unstable. It no longer updates the info automatically about 70% of the time, so you have to manually open the app to refresh the data. Also, the formatting on the widget has changed for the worse. It now shows the raw metar data underneath the decoded metar data (why? It just takes up unnecessary and valuable space) and the last airport on the widget list is cropped so you can't see all the data. Frustrating considering the old app worked flawlessly in all aspects. Hope the developers can come out with a quick fix otherwise I'll be uninstalling due to the lack of functionality, usability, and stability of the new update.
