Announcing Metam 4.0 - now with Wearable support.

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

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"!

    Just would like more customization for the widget. Like transparent background and text color.

    Used to be able to set up so all of the data was raw at startup - from what I can see, you can only do this one airport at a time now. Why was this changed? Makes my job a whole shedload harder.
