I am aware of the issue with Weather Pilot not retrieving METAR and TAF data. Will be working on a fix for the problem this weekend. Sorry for any problems this may be causing you.
If you haven’t received a notification from BlackBerry World take a look now because Weather Pilot 10 for BlackBerry has been updated to version 22.214.171.124.
Change log for version 126.96.36.199
– Added ability to launch Location Settings page when finding stations nearby but Location service is disabled
– Fixed bug where location wouldn’t be retrieved after service was enabled
– Updated advertising service
– Simplified the tutorial by removing the Close button and leaving only the Dismiss button
Hope you were able to go ad free over the last two weeks as the sale has officially ended.
For the next two weeks the in app purchase to go ad free in Weather Pilot has been reduced by 50%! Get it before the price goes back up.
Just wanted to let everyone know that Weather Pilot is still alive and well. Had another addition to the family this spring so my free time has been extremely limited but am now getting back into the swing of things. My focus is bringing the Android version of Weather Pilot up to the same feature level as BlackBerry 10. No timeline yet but I’m working on it! Thank you all for the support!
With the announcement today from BlackBerry about OS 10 being actively worked on for the foreseeable future I will be continuing to update Weather Pilot 10 for BlackBerry. Additionally, I will be focusing more of my time on Android Weather Pilot since it hasn’t had a major update in over two years. Once the Android version is updated to include the latest features that are available on BlackBerry the two will be maintained in sync.
I appreciate your continued support and great feedback. As always if you come across any issues let me know so I can address them. Otherwise, I hope you continue to find that Weather Pilot meets your needs for TAF and METAR data.
Over the last few months I’ve been working to get the BlackBerry version of Weather Pilot 10 certified as a Built for BlackBerry application and at the beginning of June it happened!
Change log for version 188.8.131.52

Weather Pilot 10 for BlackBerry is currently not showing any METAR or TAF data. A fix is in the works to resolve this issue. I apologize for for the application not functioning as advertised.
A new version of Weather Pilot 10 has been released for BlackBerry 10. This latest release brings the app version to 184.108.40.206 and with it a few enhancements. The biggest enhancement is that users can now remove advertising from the app via a one time purchase.
Other updates included in this release are
– Fix for the forever busy indicator when looking for locations nearby
– Showing a place holder on the main screen when all stations are removed; this place holder gives the user a quick way to add stations and see the latest weather
– App version shown in the About page
