The reliable and straightforward aviation weather app for pilots and aerospace enthusiasts. The METAR-Reader decodes and presents the current METARs of more than 6000 airports around the globe. Neither more nor less. A simple color coding allows a fast classification by VFR or IFR conditions - as an option even by NATO color state. Additionally, the current TAF weather forecasts are retrieved and displayed clearly in a decoded form.
Runway crosswind components are automatically calculated based on the current METAR. A widget, which can be configured to display either decoded METAR or raw METAR / TAF, is also available.
As a bonus the app offers access to NOTAM for the weather stations, which will be downloaded, in part decoded and which can individually be marked as read. This way you can easily keep track of new and relevant NOTAM.
Weather stations can be found worldwide by ICAO or IATA-Codes, airport name or city. They can be organized in user defined groups - e.g. for your most common routes or alternate airports. Additionally, an auto-managed group always presents nearby weather stations. If you use the app on multiple devices you can synchronize your groups between them.
For use during the night, there is a dark theme which can be activated either manually or automatically by the system (depending on your Android version).
