Announcing Metam 3.9 - now with custom METAR and TAF minimums and satellite map overlay.

FAQ: 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.

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 2.2 (except Maps, which requires 3.0 and up).

    Overall it's a very useful app, I'm inclined to give 5 stars but then again, there's always room for improvement. It would be much better if fetching of w/x data would automatically switch to backup source if the primary fails. Also, could you design a widget that retrieves the data for the nearest airport, based on device location? Anyhow, very decent work, thumbs up!

    This is one of the best aviation wx apps for getting a quick look at conditions. Its easy to use, and includes international wx which some apps don't.
