Beautiful display of huge amount of different data!!! What is desperately missing is the color-key for their interpretation. And Start/Stop button on the main screen. Updated 7/2022 - some data are unavailable (ssec infrared, ssec water vapor...) Still missing Setup and key-colour bar. 21-3-2023 - after today's update, doesn't work at all. All data gone...

Start/Stop is performed by double tap. Color-key label has been added in the latest release. The data are downloaded from 3rd party servers, therefor the data could be sometime unavailable.

I had originally just wanted live jetstream information but the other features are a real bonus. Check out the entire planet with a stroke of a finger! Well done!
