Better organized with groups

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 as user groups. This might be useful for your most favorite airports or home base.

Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. Each group has its own settings (“ooo” button) for data format (raw/decoded), sort order, and background color (either white as usual or time-based, where a stations background becomes dark when there’s nighttime).


Adaptive user interface for efficient use

When a detail station is shown you can directly swipe through the list without having to go back and forth which is especially useful on iPhones.

Optimized for any device and also supports splitscreens/multitasking on iPads (including drag and drop support for  iOS 11).

3D Touch support: in the station list you can use 3D Touch to get a quick preview of the METAR and TAF on supported iPhones.

Dynamic font sizes: when enabled (in settings) METAR and TAF texts will be sized according to the devices text settings. These can be found in “General > Accessibility > Larger Text”.

 


"Fantastic program. I use AeroWeather almost every day. (Even when I’m not at work!)"
Lonnie Ganz
B737 Pilot, Canada


Stay up-to-date with alert notifications*

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). On iPhones with 3D Touch notifications will show raw METAR.


Syncronize groups across your devices*

User groups can now be synchronized via Cloud Kit. If enabled in settings, user groups stay synchronized on all devices with the same Apple ID. The top level list (and its order) as well as device specific groups like nearby or widget group are excluded from syncronization.

The cloud syncronization feature will be availabe later this year.


Apple Watch app included

The AeroWeather Pro watch app 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. Go to the detail page of any station on the Watch and do a long tap to set it as complication station.

Requires watchOS 3.0 or higher.


Quick access through the Today Widget

Today widget for quick access in the today screen and through 3D Touch on app icon.

The list can be set manually (widget  group) or optionally set to nearby stations mode.


Help other pilots and users and share the weather

The AeroPix feature enables users to quickly take picture(s) of the weather conditions at their current location. The pictures will then be available to all other pilots (on the map or within airport detail view) helping them to get a better idea about the local conditions.

The pictures will be automatically deleted after a couple of hours. AeroPix will be especially helpful when there’s no or insufficient webcam coverage. You could sum it up by: one pilot helps another (of course non-pilots are welcome too…).

Your own pictures are also accessible on the “My weather images” group” (e.g. to delete).
