No Touch Easy Aviation Weather!
I designed this app for my own use but my flying buddies wanted it too. Something simple. No map scrolling, typing or tap tap tapping!
The other electronic flight bag Apps are very powerful, but also very general purpose. You have to click and type or drag and tap your finger to get a weather report. But hey! Your phone knows exactly where you are and this app gives you exactly what you want without any extra work.
Run the app and you get all the nearby METAR reports, sorted by Distance or Bearing from your current location, or by age of the report. The app will fetch the last hour’s reports, so you can look for weather trends at the airports you are interested in. This is Easy Aviation Weather!
You can limit the reporting stations to 25, 50, or 100 statute miles. Want to fly cross-country? Sort the METARs by Heading and you can get a quick idea of what lies ahead.
Tap the Nearest Station button, or any of the tabled reports and you will get a clear, legible, English translation of the METAR.
These reports come straight from the National Weather Service and reports are updated every few minutes. Drag down on the Table of reports and the app will pull a fresh update from the server.
This app requires an Wifi or Cell internet connection to fetch the METARs.
