How does the METAR Reader 2 app differ from the website?

METAR Reader has been around since 2011, initially launching only the free web service found at metarreader.com. Later that year we introduced an iOS app that expended on the website.

Now, with the METAR Reader 2.0 app, we are using a completely rewritten code and decode engine that is far more advanced than the old website at metarreader.com. Our new engine, which is only available in our app, is able to decode A LOT more METAR weather reports, has thousands more airports and weather stations and introduces new features and a new fast and native app experience on iOS.

The METAR Reader 2 decode engine is actively being expended and updated to ensure you get the most out of our service.

When is it coming to Android?
