Feature packed

Slick, tight code. Easy and fast look at all nearby options. Quick refresh; lots of info with great graphics. 👀

meh … it’s a “work in progress”

I use this app on an iPad, and this app shows it’s lineage as one of the many that started life as an iPhone app. My biggest complaint is that the app launches in “portrait” mode rather than landscape. The user has to undergo a few “gyrations” in order to get it to display in landscape mode. And along the lines of iPad functionality, there’s no ability to split-screen the app. And there should be a “refresh” button on the active METAR page to capture the latest reading. Lastly, the ability to sort the favorites would be a nice touch. As a “certified weather app-addict”, I think I must have tried every aviation weather app out there. This app is kinda “pricey” for the lack of sophistication it offers, so if the developer would adopt some of my suggestions, this app could elevate out of the “ho-hum” range. As of now, it’s not a “go-to” or “must have” app.

Great app, but can’t clear badge

I love this app. I use the web version on my computer. But with this app, I will get a badge and have no way to clear it. Since I am anal, and that drives me nuts, I had to delete the app. Can I get dev help with this?
