More About WeatherTrack

WeatherTrack itself says this:

WeatherTrack works offline. The app offers a specifically designed worldwide offline map. Users do not need internet to display a map or use any other features. GRIB files can be downloaded through a SSB or satellite connection and transmitted via iTunes to your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch  or PC. You can choose to open GRIB file attachments from email messages in WeatherTrack. This gives access to specialized weather forecasts, for example higher resolution data available from commercial subscription based services.

Estimating file size to control your roaming fees and satellite airtime bill as well as a universal application to run on all mobile i-devices was crucial to the development of WeatherTrack from the very beginning.

WeatherTrack is fully functional on the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch. No additional costs! No additional fees! No Advertising - WeatherTrack is an ad free weather app.

Use WeatherTrack to get simple, accurate information on wind speed or wind direction, pressure, air-/sea temperature, precipitation, wave height or wave direction, current, cloud cover, CAPE (severe weather data) and many more details.
