    mobileGRIB light is a fully functional version with outdated GRIB files. To receive actual GRIB forecasts, please purchase the full version.

    Full version description:

    mobileGRIB is a GRIB2 viewer for Android. It enables sailors and hobby 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!

    Map is rubbish. Tried zooming in to Maldives but they don't exist! Also the grib file display is buggy with bits missing.

    This is a good basic viewer however it lacks more advanced features such as animation, meteograms (graphs) and support for weather models other than GFS that better apps like PocketGrib have.
