Weather Pilot 2.8.1 released for Android

This update includes new features, an enhanced user interface, and minor bug fixes.

  • When adding a station users will see that the look and feel of the favorites list has changed for the better.  The buttons and text are bigger and if a user swipes one of the favorites to the left they will be given the option to remove the favorite from their list.  Previously a station had to be added to the active weather screen in order to remove it from the favorites.
  • Another change to the add station functionality is that users can now search for a station if they don’t know the ICAO or IATA.  This feature takes advantage of the local database in the application to look for any stations whose ICAO, IATA, or Name contain the string in the search box.
  • Lastly, the tutorial has been fixed so that on smaller screens the user can scroll vertically to see all of the contents on a page.

Hopefully you will find these changes add to the value of the application.  As time permits I’ll be adding more features and updating the user interface to make the application a more enjoyable experience.
