Great, informative and versatile
Not too sure what some of the negative reviews are about, but this app shows prevailing wind speed, gusts, graphic direction, augmented reality winds, temperature, relative humidity, wound data for your entire region, fast switch between reporting stations to be displayed on main display, how recent the data is (usually a matter of minutes), and probably a lot more that i have yet to tinker with! I personally have had this app for what i think have been 2 - 3 years now and love it! Maybe the negative reviews are from an area not covered, like the moon?
Doesn't show any wind or weather data!
I bought this as part of an app bundle - (I wanted the Sun Seeker app, which has a bit of a learning curve but is amazing! Figured I'd spend a little more to get this and Moon Seeker).
This app was not ready for release. There is absolutely NO DATA displayed - no wind, no temp, humidity - nothing! Also, while there is a Locations button (implying that you can save locations) there is no way to save a location!
I'm really hoping they provide a bug fix update quickly. As it stands now this app is just an expensive map.
Cannot set location. Shows only airports. In info it explains that one should touch the location button ,but the button does not exist that i can find on my iPad
