Works very well, nice interface

App does exactly what it says, the interface is clean and attractive. I like that the Metar is shown coded first, makes for great practice for students. Also very nice use of the location API for airports nearby.

Unfortunately USELESS on IPh6sPlus (9.3.2)

As much as I love and trust the naked online version I am actually annoyed I paid for this but it does nothing. A wasted $0.99, even though the amount is very small still paying money for a totally useless app is despicable.
For any user with the same device running the latest opsys: Caveat emptor [buyer beware].
Now it cost me less than a buck to not trust this developer. Not my loss, I assure you.

Not only for "wanna be" pilots

Nice app, simple to use. Pilot for 40+ years and find it to be a good tool.

Not sure why other reviewer would think it is only for "wanna be pilots", whatever that means.

Would give it 5 stars if it would open in landscape as well as portrait on iPad, usually use my iPad in landscape.

Use my iPhone in portrait, so it is not a problem on iPhone.

Have been using it frequently since purchase and find no other faults.

Good app.

Wish there were also the ability to get TAF's.
