I’ve been using this app on iphone and iPad for some time, and it keeps getting better every year. I also have it on my laptop, yet the iOS app is the most used by far. I like the “Nearby” feature, you can set distance and runway length so you have the big picture around your departure and destination. The “smart group” makes it easy to build station lists, and these lists are synced between the iOS devices. These lists make checking the weather easy, and refreshing a station list is easy so I keep the lists and refresh when needed. For oceanic flights a list of diversion airports is easy to maintain, also high density areas with wind and weather issues easy to keep up with weather impacts. I use Foreflight for graphic wx, and this app for details.
Use the app all the time for a quick look at the weather. It’s easy to use and easy to read the data. The new implementation of being able to highlight specific texts in the METARs and TAFs is awesome! As an airline pilot, AeroWeather is my go to for a quick look at the my departure, destination and alternate weather as I prepare for a flight. Being able to create custom groups for specific airports is awesome too!
Thanks for developing this app!
I always have issues setting the complication on the watch. Even though I have the airports in the watch section, they never actually load on the watch. It just tells me there aren’t any airports in the Apple Watch favorites...but there are!
Does exactly what it is supposed to do. Support for the watch (including complications) is an added, welcome bonus.
Meteograms went missing on iPhone app. Was there and worked great. With last update they are gone. Works fine in iPad.
AeroWeather is the only app I trust for pulling down the official METAR weather observations from local airports. I’m not an aviator, but the app suites my needs perfectly as a weather enthusiast.
This is an updated review after using. AeroWeather Pro for quite some time. The app itself is great, but I wanted to post about a hidden gem of a feature that makes it even more useful. Groups is a hidden gem in the pro version. You can form a group represent commonly used airports for a geographic region. This is a great app even if you don’t use groups, but groups adds a great extra layer of functionality. The way that I use groups is that I have a website that takes the plain text of our plain text flight plan and converts it to html. I then create a link that opens a group of airports in AeroWeather Pro. This link is also formatted as a QR code so that a pilot can scan the QR code shown on the iPad and open the group on an iPhone. The group that I create for each flight is titled by the flight number and dates. When the pilot opens the group the airports are listed in order of origin, destination, and then airports along the route in order of distance to the destination. What I have done with my html flight version of the flight plan could easily be done by any corporate IT department or any other flight plan producer. I could also see this being used by flying clubs to create a list of local airports with the link being posted on the club website. There is information on the Lakehorn site on how to form the URL to create a group. John F. Bell
I use this app on a daily basis to monitor weather when I’m in shift. It’s gives me the most up to date weather for a given station. Another great feature is the ability to check NOTAMs. Great app!!!
I paid for the pro version of this app years ago, and the entire time the watch complication has been a buggy mess. As other reviewers have noted the complication doesn’t show anything when you first install it, and requires some magical combination of force touch and hacks to get it to finally display the weather. Sometimes it won’t display anything for day until it decides to start showing weather. To make matters worse the developer, instead of fixing bugs, has now rolled out additional features that require an in app purchase (even if you already paid for the “pro” version). Maybe it’s time to fix problems instead of coming up with ways to scam more cash from your users.
