Weather Pilot for BlackBerry Issues

Update 26 Feb:  Still no word from BlackBerry support on whether they have recieved my ticket.  Sorry for this downtime.

I want to apoligize for users of the BlackBerry 10 version of Weather Pilot.  I have a release to fix the issues with the METAR and TAF data not loading but am unable to submit the build through App World due to technical difficulties.  I have contacted support and am waiting on their response.

Weather Pilot version 2.6 released for Android

Updated the Android version of Weather Pilot to use HTTPS for data retrieval. In the near future this will be required for the app to work as HTTP connections will not be permitted. Please update at the next opportunity.

Weather Pilot 2.5 Released

Weather Pilot version 2.5 has been release for Android 4.4 and newer. The release adds several new features.

  • Option for users to make a one-time purchase to remove all advertisements.
  • Tutorial that launches the first time the application is run.
  • Change Log so users can view the history of changes.
  • Menu option to email the developer with all recorded problems from the current session.

I will be working on updating the application for pre-4.4 Android versions shortly.

Update: Pre-4.4 application released in the Play Store.

Release 2.4.6 fixes Android pre-4.4 issues

Release 2.4.6 was pushed out a week ago that fixed an issue with Android releases 4.2.2 – 4.4.1 where the app would launch but adding stations didn’t function.

Weather Pilot for Android updated

Version 2.3.0 of Weather Pilot for Android has been released.  This update adds viewing of the previous six hours of METAR data for a station to the main view.  Click on METAR History under the station weather box to see the history.  To get back to the main view that shows both the latest METAR and TAF click on Current.  An additional menu was also added that will serve as the application menu for things like Settings in the future.  For now it provides a link to the About page for the application that lets users know the current version of the application they are running and how to contact me with support questions.

Weather Pilot fixed

Android users of Weather Pilot experienced an issue last week where METAR and TAF data was not showing in the app.  The issue has since been resolved with a new version of the app getting released.  Version 2.0.1 of the app is currently active in the Play Store and should fix the issue.  Since this version of the app was a complete rewrite not all features are the same in this latest release.  Currently a link to the map view of the weather station is not available but will be made available in an upcoming release.  One new feature is the ability to save favorite stations for quick retrieval in the Add Station window.

I am sorry for any inconvenience the recent outage may have caused.  With this latest release I have plans to add new features to make the app even more functional to pilots, meteorologists, and weather enthusiasts alike.
