Upgrade and iPhone!

MyMetar.com “Gamma”

The MyMetar.com “Gamma Release” is now live.  Woot! This release includes many bug fixes, performance enhancements, and new features that we hope you will enjoy.  Improvements include:

  • A new, more colorful page design.
  • Tabbed interfaces for easily moving between search, preferences, and your page.
  • Integration with Google Maps: see your favorite stations and the current flight rules layered on top of a Google map.
  • Flight rules indicators for TAFs.
  • An improved mobile interface and automatic browser detection, ensuring the right interface for your device is displayed.
  • Themes!  The groundwork is laid so that you’ll be able to select between different page layouts.
  • More Radar Ensembles.
  • Plain language interpretation presented in the same order as ATIS.

MyMetar.com on iPhone! Woot!

On June 29th, it looks as though people will be flocking to AT&T and Apple stores to pick up an iPhone.  If you will be one those individuals jumping in to the frenzy, don’t fret: your MyMetar.com weather will be waiting for you via an iPhone friendly user interface.

See what your MyMetar.com page will look like by pointing your browser to http://www.mymetar.com/iphone/ (keep the the slash on the end).

MyMetar.com is the first aviation weather website devoted to pilots that will provide a tailored user experience to aviators toting an iPhone!

    Got my iPhone…. how can I access MyMetars webpage and see it like your demo shows?

    Thanks for the great job in this website!

    Great Idea. However, my mobile page still doesn’t look like the demo page you have for the iPhone. Still a work in progress?

    There is one option I’d like to see for the iPhone interface.

    Would it be possible to show the raw metar data inline with the initial list? For instance, my iPhone currently show up like this:

    Metars by Perk
    Radar Mosaic >
    St. Louis Area
    KALN ALTON/ST LOUIS R >
    KSTL ST. LOUIS >
    etc…

    Instead of having to follow the link to each airport, I’d like the option to see the raw metar displayed right on the first page:

    Metars by Perk
    Radar Mosaic >
    St. Louis Area
    KALN ALTON/ST LOUIS R >
    071952Z 11009KT 10SM BKN080
    32/17 A2996
    KSTL ST. LOUIS >
    071951Z VRB05KT 10SM BKN060
    32/17 A2996 RMK A02 SLP131
    etc…

    Great work so far… I clicked on all the adsense links for you =)

    Thanks for the comments, gents.

    The MyMetar iPhone interface is now complete. If you point your iPhone to http://www.mymetar.com or iphone.mymetar.com, you’ll see the new and improved, iPhone-optimized version of MyMetar.

    Perk, we’ll get your suggestion added ASAP.
