Request

I love the App and have a request or suggestion. Why not have an adaptation of this App that would be compatible with MSFS2020? Would be especially nice if we could install it into the custom Toolbar within the simulator. I think lots of guys would appreciate it and it would be very helpful.

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.

Excellent App

Wow. Great app. I had been using the Metar for my airport, but discovered the app today. Good to be able to change C to F for temp, etc. This app is also good for non pilots just for weather purposes.
