Hi,

A US company has developed what looks like the ultimate weather App. Certainly puts the weather into a format that's useful to a pilot for the first time.
Only disappointment is that it doesn't seen to be on SA App store, so I guess its not available to us just yet!

Ok, so now it's available on the SA AppStore.
In the US the app uses METARS/TAFs/airmets/sigmets/pireps/radar/prognosis and Sig Wx charts as input data.
In SA (and internationally) it only uses METARS and TAFs. As we only have ONE weather station anywhere between Jhb and CT it only uses FABL weather. However the display is interesting and very pilot friendly!
The app offers a free trial period.
