MetarDroid Lite (Metar -Taf )


This simple application gives you real time access to METAR and TAF for airports around the world
and allows you to instantly decode aviation weather information.

How to use MetarDroid Lite:

From home screen search for an airport by entering its ICAO code (ex. EDDF) or multiple airports by entering different ICAO codes separated by spaces (ex. EDDF EGLL EGCC).Tick “Taf” checkbox on the right if you also want to download taf information.

Press “Fetch weather” button to download latest metar information from NOAA website or the “Reset” button to clear text from the search box.

Note: some airports might not be available or recent metar information could be missing. In this case a “No METAR found” message will appear.

If metars are found a list will appear that shows for each station its raw metar information followed by taf information. Also a flight category appears at the top right corner saying if the station is in VFR, MIFR or IFR conditions.

From this screen you can add the station or the group of station as a favourite search by pressing on ( Add this search to favourites) at the bottom of the screen. A Dialog box appears when you can give your search a name you like.
For example if you looked for EGCC EGNX EGGP you can save the search as “Northern England”. This search will appear on the home screen.

Simply press on the raw text to get raw metar or raw taf decoded to plain text. From the decoded screen you can still save your search or visualize the raw text again. You can also get more station information by pressing on “Station” button or on the airport name at the top of the screen.
