The highlight of the app provides you a forecast for your flight by checking for indicators of turbulence. It looks at aviation weather that pilots look at to give you a realistic prognostic of what to possibly expect.One can see turbulence embedded in thunderstorms as pilots see it. Designed by an airline pilot, it uses a combination of aviation knowledge and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques to help you reduce your fear of turbulence. It works on i-phone, ipad and ipod touch. Turbcast is easy to use. Simply enter your departure and arrival airport, time zone and let the app do the rest.

This thing does not work very well at all
I recommend Turbulence over this and looking at the weather channel app. I am being generous giving this 2 stars. It's not very accurate and as an example today it freaked me out flying from Boston to Rochester telling me that I'd have a low turbulence take off, minimal trip which on this really means anywhere from low to moderate and a high turbulence landing which kind of scared me. Turbulence app said it would be low for the whole trip and it was right. This is really a toy and usually tells you the trip will be low turbulence but does not seem to be considerably accurate unfortunately.
Wonderful app for those that get motion sick on bumpy plane rides! So far it's been very accurate! Only thing improvement would be to design it for the iPad...I don't like the small format when using my iPad.
This app is not very accurate. I had a flight yesterday from Atlanta to LA and it said "high" turbulence at takeoff and the takeoff was very smooth! What scares me now is what will happen when it tells me "low" and it ends up being severe! it needs some adjusting to its accuracy. I have a different turbulence app that is more accurate. It has actual pilot reports.
