What's New

- Reworked threading when handling iOS7 background update - was causing thread contention if it was in the process of handling a background update when the user selected to bring PocketWeather to the foreground - often resulting in an apparent UI freeze and iOS7 deciding to 'eject' it.
- Fixed bug where if 1st location is disabled AND only 1 location is enabled, the main 'View' remains blank.
- Fix to Foreca forecast weather template
- Update to Portuguese translations (thanks Julio)
- Update to UK Met Office Weather Alert template
- Extended timeout when accessing PocketWeather Social Posting Leader Board

App Description

Please note that PocketWeather is no longer being maintained. We recommend that you use one of the many other weather applications such as Weather Underground.

Get worldwide weather reports directly to your iOS device anytime anywhere! PocketWeather is the most powerful multi-sourced weather tracking solution, featuring a robust and flexible weather engine wrapped with a stylish, uncomplicated user interface powered by a user-customisable display engine with high quality artwork.

If you wish to try PocketWeather Pro before buying, please install our free 'PocketWeather - #1 Weather App' - this App is identical to 'PocketWeather Pro' except for advertising.


PocketWeather's graphics have been exclusively created by @juniskins: stylish, colorful, uncomplicated - integrating complete weather information that unfolds down into extensive information resources contained with PocketWeather.

PocketWeather is the only App to parse data directly from METAR stations which provide highly detailed and accurate current conditions and detailed short term forecasts to airline pilots all over the world. PocketWeather is used by commercial airline pilots to help keep track of the weather.

In addition to providing just about every weather related piece of information possible from multiple sources, PocketWeather is the only App that also integrates World Wide Earthquake tracking, Lightning Stopwatch, optimised links to Global and Local Severe Weather Centers, user customisable views, user customisable weather sources, and much much more.

Either select from one of the many existing CustomTemplate scripts, or create your own.
