First and foremost this app is geared towards pilots and meteorologists. The application provides quick access to the latest METAR and TAF data for any ICAO most IATAs. Users can save favorites, search for stations by name, find stations near their current location, and view the station on a Map. Latest METAR and TAF data for stations being viewed by the user is also saved so that the weather information can be available if the application is launched when the device doesn't have a data connection.
This app is not designed to search for cities or towns; to get weather information you need to enter the station identifier (ICAO or IATA). These are four letter identifiers like KMDT (Middletown, PA), PAKN (King Salmon, AK), and KIAD (Dulles, VA). Or enter IATA identifiers, which are three letter identifiers like IAD (Dulles, VA). All weather forecasts and observations are retrieved from the National Weather Service Aviation Digital Data Service (ADDS)

- Network access is required so METAR and TAF data can be retrieved.
