mobileGRIB


mobileGRIB is a GRIB2 viewer for Android. It enables sailors and meteorologists to have detailed weather information always available. This is done by downloading GRIB files of any region of interest. Source for the Gridded Binaries is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Forecast times and variables can be chosen from pressure, wind arrows, temperature, cloud cover, humidity and precipitation for the upcoming 8 days between a resolution of 1° x 1° or, for even more detail, 0.5° x 0.5°. By selecting only what the user needs, this procedure will keep the size of the downloaded GRIB file low, making it especially convenient for low bandwidth regions covered only by Edge or GPRS networks, or simply regions with low cellular coverage.
Downloaded map tiles will be cached for offline use. This is why we highly recommend our users to browse through the desired area and zoom level before going offline, in order to always have the map tiles cached for offshore use.

Upcoming features:

* L and H signs for pressure
* Isotherms
* Waves
* Windmap
* Combined numerical data
* Weather Animation
* 16 days forecast
* and much, much more to be added..stay tuned!

Recent changes:
* re-engineered fetch data dialog
* added 8 days forecast
* massive speed improvement of GRIB creation on server
* fixed sound muting on exit
* fixed grib reload on same area
* added numerical data
* remember position on exit
* changed coordinates to nautical values
* smaller corrections

Hey! I really loved this app but for some time now don't get fresh data. Only from day 14.01.2015 !!! Can we expect any progress with the app or is a dead project?

works on Galaxy SII, does not work on Tablet SM-P905. In any case takes ages to build up the screens, even with excellent wifi connection. Totally disappointing. It"s not about the money, that is peanuts BUT this app has wasted some of my precious time.
