Thanks to the iPhone and iPad, apps have revolutionized the way pilots fly. To that end, AOPA will begin showcasing five aviation-related apps weekly. As those of us on the East Coast dig out from the aftereffects of Hurricane Sandy, this week we’ll take a look at weather apps. These are not endorsements of any app.
So there you have it. If you have any apps you think I should review in the upcoming months, please pass them along to me.
