AeroWeather Pro App Description

*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather! *** Current and precise weather conditions (METAR) and forecasts (TAF). AeroWeather Pro provides quick and intuitive access to METAR and TAF for airports worldwide. Data can be shown in its original (raw) format or as fully decoded and easy understandable texts. AeroWeather Pro is helpful for weather preflight-briefings, but also to just get very precise weather. All weather data is cached for offline access. There are many settings for units and format of METAR/TAF available. In addition to weather data, AeroWeather Pro integrates also airport NOTAMs (provided by US FAA), webcam images around airports (provided by webcams.travel), and US ATC delay information (provided by US FAA). The app features a built-in airport database, which includes basic airport data like runways, sunrise/sunset, twilight times, timezones etc. AeroWeather Pro now offers built-in groups for earthquakes, ATC delays (US only), nearby stations, today widget, and Apple Watch which can be individually enabled on the top level view. Besides creating user groups it’s also possible to put stations on the same level user groups. This might be useful for your most favourite airports or home base. Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. User groups can now be synchronized via Cloud Kit*. METAR alert notifications* is another new and helpful feature to stay up-to-date. Define multiple alerts for each station with the following criteria: flight rule (US NOAA), wind speed, temperature, pressure, present weather, visibility, and ceiling (BKN and OVC). Notifications will be sent to your device if the criteria is met (e.g., when wind is greater/equal 10 kts, flight rule becomes IFR). The AeroPix feature offers users the possibility to take quickly picture(s) of the weather at their current location. The pictures will be available to all other pilots (on the map or within an airport detail view) helping them to get a better idea about local conditions. AeroPix should be especially helpful when there's no or insufficient webcam coverage. AeroWeather Pro comes with an Apple Watch app, which shows either a list of stations as defined in the Apple Watch group or all nearby stations based on the current location. METAR, TAF, and webcam images (if available and enabled in the Watch App settings on the iPhone) are displayed for each station. In addition, you can put AeroWeather as a complication in your watch face to stay up-to-date. Please consult our web-site for a full description of all features. * Additional functionality which needs to be unlocked (one-time purchase). In-app purchases are not transferable between Lite, Pro, and Mac.

AeroWeather Pro App Reviews

  • Apple Watch support broken

    By brazilianphysicist
    Paid for the upgrade to Pro because of Apple Watch support, but it doesn’t work (widget stops receiving current weather for no reason).
  • Buy the pro - get alerts to buy even more stuff

    The pro version will still occasionally spam you with notifications to “unlock more features.” They got my money once, but it’s an uninstall. Aviation weather alerts are critical and shouldn’t be used for marketing.
  • Notification spam

    By tabaks
    App developer of this PAID app engages in notification spam to beg for more money. Despicable behavior and abuse of system service! Automatic one star rating!
  • Still Does not work on mobile devices after update

    After update, the app does not work. You can not add airports or see any weather. Unfortunate, I use to use it all the time. You can not add any airport weather through the mobile app.
  • Very often unusable

    Would be an ok app if it wouldn’t have connection problems. Half of the time the app can’t connect to the server.
  • Never works when I need it

    About 80% of the time when you open the app you will get "Loading Failed." Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, verifying the data settings, etc. Well worth it when the app works properly though.
  • Like the potential

    Took a while to get it working. On my phone seems to work fine. My Apple Watch on the other hand is a different story. My watch very seldom ever updates. I’ve tried every combination of settings but the weather straight from my watch stays hours and hours behind.
  • New Alert

    This is a great app! I was just wondering if under the alerts a feature allowing for alerts if an airport has a delay would be possible? This would only work for US airports and FAA delays but since we can view these delays in the app, an alert for them would be fantastic.
  • Groups rock!

    The groups feature is great. It allows you to create lists of airports. You can create a list by region or even by flight. Simply create a list and add the airports you want in the list. I have a website that creates an html version of a plain text flight plan that my company produces. I create a list of our approved alternates along the route of flight. This list can then be loaded into AeroWeather Pro using a link. Optionally, the link can be encoded as a QR code to be scanned. Thus, a pilot can open an html version of the flight plan and scan the list of airports for the flight number into AeroWeather. I would share some examples, but the last review with my site did not get posted. However, if you go to the support site for AeroWeather, there is enough Gino to figure out how to structure the link.
  • Great App
