Description of AeroWeather Lite

*** AeroWeather: for pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and everyone who is serious about the weather! *** Current and precise weather conditions (METAR) and forecasts (TAF). AeroWeather Lite 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 Lite 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. The app features a built-in airport database, which includes basic airport data like sunrise/sunset, twilight times, timezones etc. AeroWeather Lite offers built-in groups for nearby stations, today widget (pre iOS 14), and earthquakes. Depending on your needs, groups can be shown or hidden in the main list view. METAR alert notifications** is an 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). Dedicated METAR/TAF** access is optionally available. METAR/TAF data comes primarily from a certified ANSP (air navigation service provider) and is provided reliably and fast from our dedicated, redundant servers (indicated by blue checkmark underneath METAR/TAF). Please consult our web-site for a full description of all features. In order to keep AeroWeather Lite free we added a small ad banner at the bottom of the screen.

Reviews of AeroWeather Lite

  • Change wind direction symbol.

    The red triangle depicting the wind direction is opposite from what pilots traditionally have seen : the narrow pointy end should face the direction from which the wind is blowing , ie pointy end down if the wind is from 180 degrees. This convention does back to the days when airports had a large, rotatable triangle that was in the middle of the airport and pointed into the wind. Pilots flying into fields with no tower could see the direction in which to land. Other weather apps correctly use the wind icon.
  • Terrible customer service. Widget doesn’t work

    The app gets the job done with some good weather information. However, purchasing it is completely useless. The widget will just default to. Kjfk. and you cannot change it. I don’t live anywhere near there so it’s pointless to me. I have attempted to contact customer service to see if I can fix this and they never respond. I would just keep the free version.
  • Great app!

    1. Program is exceptionally built.
    2. Offers numerous features that are highly beneficial for forecasters.
    3. Superior and more accurate information compared to other apps in the market.
    4. Prompt and effective customer support. Upon encountering an issue, support staff provided immediate assistance and walked through the solution process after receiving the error log.
    5. User-friendly interface once familiarized with.

    1. Presence of multiple versions of the app (Lite, LITE, and Pro) can be confusing for some users.

    **User Feedback:**
    - Initially, the user experienced challenges with the widget function, which was later discovered to be a misunderstanding on their part. After guidance from the app's support, the issue was swiftly resolved.
    - Due to the remarkable support and the wealth of information the app provides, the user has revised their review from 3 stars to 5 stars.
