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

This does not work on a Sony experia tablet. Data is downloaded but it is not displayed. Very disappointing.

Modified Forecast maps OK, but cloud cover is not accurate to actual weather or PC grib. Almost three years down the line and still no promised update. Animation would be good addition but seems unlikely. Think this one's been forgotten!

Good app but can the font size be increased Recently switched from Samsung to htc m8. On the htc the font size of the Oscars and the forecast time in the to of the screen is so tiny that it's very hard to make out what it states. This'd made me look for some different app, which is unfortunate because I did like it. Can this perhaps be changed in the next version

Does what it should but 'clumsy' There are much better aps out trere. This one has not been updated for a long time and developer does not react to 'constructive' mails with suggestions. Try SailGrib
