    Had a FC on Tab pro 10.1, dev. responded within 24h with a fix, can't beat that! I'm not a pilot but the app is excellent for area wx. Been using it for a few months now.

    So easy to see everything. The more I look the more useful information I see. Would love to see Airmet and Sigmet information regarding Icing, Turbulence, and other conditions in the vicinity of the airport. Living in colorado, I would specifically like to see freezing levels! The forecast page is great, it would be awesome to see this information as a time slider with your personal color coding.

    Super easy way to get a good idea what's going on at local airports. I even look when I'm not going flying.
