●●● How Smart? ●●●
Aura’s analysis & scoring systems are powered by Artificial Intelligence, that translates complicated weather-drone data into a score & friendly SIMPLE SENTENCES.

●●● All in One ●●●
We take into account all weather & space elements that are important to drone flights (such as wind, satellites, No-Fly Zones, solar activity, etc.) and put them all together on a WELL DESIGNED INTERFACE. This makes it easier to view all the critical information in a single view, without having to navigate around to different pages.

●●● The Power to Time Travel ●●●
Aura provides HOUR-BY-HOUR & day-by-day forecasts. So you can find not only the best day to fly, but the also best hour of the day. ANYWHERE on this planet. For now, Aura supports weather on EARTH only.

●●● Not Good to Fly?? ●●●
Wait! We understand sometimes perfect weather is rare. But even if you can’t find one, maybe you shouldn’t cancel your flight yet, since Aura can give you guide & suggestions on how to fly in that not-so-good weather.
What are the things to pay more attention to, what additional tools to use, how to control the drone in certain condition and so on.

●●● Dark Mode ●●●
While the default Light Theme is meticulously designed in high-contrast for bright & sunny environment, the DARK THEME is more easy on the eyes. Both literally & idiomatically. It's perfect for night time flying or checking Aura indoors.
Or use “Auto Theme” and watch as Aura changes theme automagically according to sunrise & sunset on your location.

●●● No-Fly Zone ●●●
Someday you’re ready to fly on a new interesting location. But little did you know, there’s a small airport nearby. Flying a drone there would be considered a felony.
Don’t let this happen, plan your flights by checking Aura in advance. Check wether a location is drone-restricted or how far is it from the restricted area.
Currently there are 60k+ NFZs in our database! If you know an NFZ that's not included in Aura, just let us know. Our team will verify it.

●●● Apple Watch Support ●●●
Bring Aura’s intelligence to your wrist & experience the finest weather-checking moments.

●●● It’s FREE! ●●●
The free version provides forecasts for the next 7 days! Both HOURLY & DAILY.

This won’t just be it. Cool features are coming your way!

Great App

I would say that this app is pretty spot on when it comes to planning a flight. Iv used it 3 times now and it seems to be pretty spot on most of the time. The only downside I see is having to pay money for LIVE updates, other than that its a GREAT app to use. I like how much information is packed into it like the mapping that shows you Airports and Hospitals and such all in one app.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the 5-star review! So happy to hear that Aura is useful to you.
LIVE updates are indeed FREE for all users. The presented data is the most recent data and you can ask for weather data anytime & anywhere you are. We only suggest you to be a paid user if you want to use Aura intensely, do time travel without time & distance limit, or if you want to enjoy the rest of Aura's cool features without limitation.

Anyway, Happy Droning!

Pin Drop?

I need the ability to drop a pin on the map in “time travel”. Not every place I fly has an address. Sometimes I just know where the location is on the map and don’t have the address. It would be much less time consuming just to be able to drop a pin instead of tying to I’d an address nearby, especially if my flight location is more than a hundred miles from my current location.

Otherwise, great app.

Developer Response ,

Request Granted! Drop a pin📍on the Time Travel map.
Expect an update in the next 24 hours & we promise you, no more ID’ing addresses 😉. Please try it.
Thank you for your review.

Happy Droning!
