The venerable U.S. weather app Wx, named a Mac Gem by Macworld magazine, is now available for iPad! Wx displays current conditions, forecasts, alerts, and radar for U.S. locations using high fidelity XML data from the National Weather Service.

Wx is designed for two types of customers: serious weather watchers who want detailed information and facts with no fuss, and casual users who want a fast, clean, and functional weather app that has low memory overhead and low CPU/battery usage.

Wx lets you set up locations on an embedded map, guiding you to choose nearby NWS observation sites (over 1700 available in the U.S. and its territories), nearby NEXRAD radar sites, and nearby city- and county-based alert zones.

Wx is crafted with attention to detail by a pro developer. The app has multiple levels of redundancy to handle severe weather events, and offers network settings for both Wi-Fi and Cellular operation to fine tune performance and bandwidth needs. Wx operates in portrait and landscape orientations, and offers an efficient user interface design for each mode.

Wx for iPad runs on iOS 6.1 or later.
