Since the weather has been fluctuating from snow to rain, from below-freezing to spring-like temperatures, now is a good time to review apps that track the weather. AOPA members are very passionate about their weather apps, and below are the top five requests I’ve received. These are not endorsements of any app.
What apps do you use to search for the best fuel prices? Please send them my way here. Feel free to send along any other pilot/aviation apps you can’t live without. Thanks to everyone who continues to pass along their Google Play and iTunes app recommendations. The complete list of apps I’ve reviewed since October 2012 is in AOPA’s online archive.

FAA Information and Services,
Rockwell Collins, which purchased ARINC last year, has combined the flight support services offered by it and ARINC, and enhanced onboard systems for passengers and pilots.
When you brief an instrument approach with circling minima, can you explain whether it has a standard circling approach maneuvering radius, or an expanded one?
Safe Flight has developed an icing detector that senses icing conditions before ice develops, allowing pilots to escape.
