Metam - Aviation Weather/METAR


Announcing Metam 4.0 - now with Wearable support.

FAQ: (updated for Wearable and Backup/Restore support!) http://goo.gl/VAMzij

Metam is everything you've wanted for your global aviation weather needs and more:

1. At its core, you create lists of airports important to you, either individual, or along a flight path. Display their METARs in parsed or raw format, access color highlighted TAFs quickly, cryptic Snowtams are decoded for you into plain language, access NOTAMs and forecasts efficiently.

2. Metam offers a side menu full of aviation weather charts and imagery. Current observations, forecasts, flight level winds and temperatures, satellite, radar, operations and more.

3. You can now overlay global METAR, SIGMET, G-AIRMET and CWA data onto maps (Android 3.0+ only). Also radar/precipitation or IR satellite. Also, you can now enter custom ceiling and visibility minimums to quickly see airports that meet your personal or company visibility/ceiling requirements. Tap on any airport or overlay to get the full METAR/TAF/TEXT for that airport/overlay.

4. Need quick access to raw METARs and TAFs on your Wearable? As of version 4, this is supported too. Use "OK Google, start Aviation Weather"!

Metam is and will remain 100% ad free and uses the minimum of permissions to get you what you need. In-app purchase is only included to offer the user a method to donate, if they choose. Using Holo UI, Metam offers a comfortable, familiar experience compatible on devices back to Android 2.3 (except Maps, which requires 3.0 and up).

Recent changes:
V4.1 Build 218:
+ Snowtam is now Runway Report (since its source is METAR based and not NOTAM based).
+ Bug fixes to Runway Report parsing should make it more reliable.

V4.1 Build 217:
Attempt to fix no-data-load with widgets, typically after reboot or flaky data connection (let me know if it's still not working). Also tweaked widget UI a tad.
Bug fixes.

Great just needs a couple tweaks Great app, perfect for what I need only a few issues. 1, sometimes ceilings are below my criteria of 2000 and don't get highlighted in the taf. 2, I wish I could quickly toggle between the display types with a button next to favorites, ie metar only, taf only. Can you add the option to customize the font in the favorites display to make it smaller? Would be nice to see more airports at once. I would definitely pay for this app it it has these refinements.

This app is fantastic! A must have for pilots. I particularly enjoy the home screen widgets that display the METAR (raw or decoded) and the flight category for the airports you set. They auto update too. The interface is easy to use but very functional. A great augmenter to FltPlan GO!

Works well This apps works well, and I use it every day. However, the data on the widget had some delay. It is not a big problem since I don't use it, but it would be nice it gets updated at the time METAR is updated.
