Nice display but not intuitive When you get the weather data it displays it quite well but it took a while to work things out. Controls are not intuitive and there are some frustrations with the menus and display that make the over-all experience a bit clunky.
The Best This is the best Android weather modelling app I have ever seen. Works great on my Samsung Galaxy Tab4 7.0 running android 4.4. Unfortunately I cannot install it on my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone as it requires android 4.2 and up and my phone is 4.1. I emailed the developer 3 weeks ago asking if the next upgrade of the app could possibly lower this requirement and received no response. For this reason I give it 3 stars. I will give it 4 if the developer responds and 5 if the 4.2 and up requirement is lowered.
Not bad needs a few different options for pressure readings and 1 hour data steps would be nice its just way to fast even at 3 hour data steps it would also be nice to haves the high and lows with the isobars pressure .It also seems to drain the battery rather fast. I have had a few issues with it freezing and crashes sent a few emails to the developers of this app not much support its been over a year and a half and no updates
Weather4hd Keeps centering on tha good ole usa! Im not in usa, stop doing it.bloody pain. Even setting it to "read my bloody gps" dossnt stop it.
Charting problems! Navigation needs waypoint import/export; chart downloading awkward Downloading/using charts VERY PROBLEMATIC. Not very useable for navigation! Nice app for weather (although gribs etc not that useful for coastal cruising here in British Columbia - - need Environment Canada forecasts). Navigation portion looks of interest (especially as raster charts are used!), but it really needs ability to import (and export) waypoints, such as a gpx file. There does not seem to be a manual in English for the Android App. Chart downloading VERY awkward: one has to zoom in on every area (bay, cove) to ensure one gets charts with best detail. Takes a long time and due to 2GB limit, only small areas can be saved. (Note to developers: here in Canada, and many other countries, one cannot be connected to the internet while cruising in order to download chart!) Remarkably (and potentially dangerous), charts do not indicate depth metric (fathoms or metres).
Needs more options Love the layout and interface for looping and zooming etc but would be great if there was the option to view more model parameters to help with forecasting E.g. Abs vorticity, 500mb heights, 850 temps, LI and cape etc etc. Still on the hunt for something similar to this but with more. If more is added I will be back to subscribe.
- Added Arpège and Arome models from Météo France
