Announcing Metam 4.0 - now with Wearable support.

FAQ: (updated for Wearable and Backup/Restore support!)

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"!

    How come I can't loop the observations? If the app can't loop them, fine, put a button in that will take me to the ADDS where I can see the radar and satellite over time. Or at least stick some surface winds in there so I know where the weather is going.

    Always use this app as I work at the airport, very accurate

    This is an excellent app that had everything including Miranda for an airport. This is very helpful as a commercial pilot flying 4-6 legs a day. One suggestion: anyway to set a default list order so that every time I add an airport it automatically puts it in ICAO or alphabetical order (whatever our default is) so that we don't have to reorder it every time.

    I have my "favorites" set up to include everything I need, wind lines, turbulence, etc. I also like that once I'm airborne I can still pull up my last set of images even though I'm no longer connected to the internet.

    Great app. Does everything in a clean, quick interface. Constantly gets updates and it's free. Don't waste your time on other similar apps.
