Very useful app for me as a paraglider pilot. Great, fast feedback from the developer when I mentioned two problems I had with the app. If having troubles with saving your favorites or with using the Google Map for getting the lat/lon coordinates, go into your phones Settings -> Apps -> Skew-t -> Permissions and enable "Storage" and "Your location" :-)
This is one awesome app! Great work! BUT LAST DAYS IT DOES NOT WORK. FOR LAT/LON POINTS GFS SAYS NO DATA!
Great app for determining what the weather is going to be like (if you know how to read a skew-t plot of course). Perfect for glider pilots for forecasting when the thermals will kick off and where cloud base will be.
Two suggestions: The time for the slider needs detail. Is it referencing zulu or local? I can't tell. Also, a brief description of the models in the info wouldn't hurt. I'm familiar with some, but not all. That's easy to look up though. Aside from that, absolutely excellent app! Makes upper air analysis a breeze and a real value to GA ops. I'll be recommending it. Thank you very much for this!
Thanks for building the app. I am a big fan of the rucsoundings site. There was an issue that was fixed right away by the author of the software. Thank you!!!! I look forward to using this app.
Very useful! Maybe a short description of how to use the thermal trigger and other 'what if' scenarios in the quick start guide would be helpful to learn how to use it properly, but with a bit of patience it will come to you once you experiment with it for a bit.

When all you care to know about the weather is if it's about to kill you or not.
