WorldAviationWX decodes the current aviation weather (METAR) and forecast (TAF) into easy-to-understand terms. Forecasts are displayed with graphical timelines, making it very easy to visualize the forecast periods. One press of a button, and historical weather (for the past 24 hours) is displayed. This is useful for spotting trends.
The app has other important features. With one finger tap, the user is able to see the Google map view of the airport. Personal notes can also be stored for each airport.
