Shockingly Bad, Pathetic Even

Avwx isn't even an application, it just redirects you to web-sites via Safari.

If you want WX on your iPhone then use AeroWeather. It's FREE, and a 1000 times better than this polished...

Don't bother

AvWx requires a membership and monthly fee. Aeroweather blows this away and is free.

5/5 stars

Warbird restorations

I have been using the AvWx version previous to the my iPhone version for years and liked it a lot. The new iPhone locator version is awsome! More cool features that work great. I highly recommend it and I use it all the time.
