Alerts (in First and Captain):  Push Notifications (referred to as alerts) can be sent to the user’s device(s) based on defined criteria within the AeroWeather app. All alert definitions (criteria) are stored on servers at Amazon AWS in order to process, generate and send notifications. Notifications are sent via Amazon AWS services to Apple for delivery to the user’s device(s).

If DWD doesn’t provide data for particular locations, data from the  other sources will be used instead. Also, usually the most up-to-date source is delivered. Home screen widgets (on iOS 14 or higher) are included in this service. Data is always distributed from our servers at Amazon AWS.

Service Description

All data provided by the Subscription service are gathered, processed, stored, and delivered by dedicated infrastructure (using Amazon Web Services). All systems for data distribution are configured as fail-safe to provide a high level of availability and reliability. However, unexpected incidents may still happen and can cause interruption of services. All services are configured, programmed, operated, maintained, and paid for by Lakehorn AG.

Your subscription will automatically be synced between your devices, which use the same Apple ID. Thus, please make sure that iCloud is enabled on all your devices and you’re logged in with the same Apple ID. Cross-application usage will be supported for AeroWeather Lite and AeroWeather Pro (e.g., a subscription purchased on AeroWeather Lite is valid on AeroWeather Pro as well).

Free Trial

Lakehorn AG may, at its sole discretion, offer a Subscription with a free trial for a limited period of time. Any unused portion of a free trial period, if offered, will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription to that publication, where applicable.


We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material we will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion.
By continuing to access or use our Service after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.
