This app does exactly what it’s supposed to. I’ve never had any problems and I use it every day. Flawless experience.

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.

OK, but Dissapointed

It works fine to decode METAR weather information but it doesn’t decode Terminal Area Forecasts and I can’t save anything to the Favourites.
