Uncertain Forecast

Dan K 88

This ap was the best and i used it daily. As an avy pro, outdoor writer and heavy bc shredder, it was a rare find in a landscape of poor weather and avy aps. It was perfect and brilliantly simple. But when NWAC updated itself, this ap stopped working completely. The new NWAC ap is good for danger ratings but a poor substitute for forecasts and telemetry. Bring it back, please. Im sure its a grind to update every time NWAC changes course but you are sorely missed.

No telemetry


Telemetry data has stopped working completely. Otherwise would be 4 star. 5 if they had a few more links

Used to be great, broken now


Seems like most of the functionality of this app is broken now. Telemetry graphs don't work, webcam links don't work. In short, NWAC's free app isn't great, but is better
