Extremely cumbersome to use

James G 3 months ago updated by Eric.Rush (Project Lead) 3 months ago 1

Being forced to switch each option on and off before clicking on the next option is extremely cumbersome and does not lend itself to a positive user experience. I do not find the app to be intuitive.  Prog/surface analysis charts now only show a current snapshot, and do not have an option to show 6, 12, 24, 36, 48, etc. hrs. in advance.

I would not use this app as is, it is far too cumbersome and makes it difficult to get the data required in a reasonable amount of time.  Overlaying charts is very helpful to us pilots and should be incorporated into the product.

As a programmer myself, the user interface leaves a lot to be desired as do the underlying methods.  The user interface should be intuitive, flexible, be easy to use, and provide useful data quickly.  Those qualities will provide a good user experience, and make the users want to use the app.

Thank you for feedback. We are already working on controls that will allow new overlays to be turned on without having to turn active overlays off. This is more complicated that we first anticipated so we were not able to include this functionality prior to the beta release.

The Surface Forecast chart (Prog Chart) does allow for a current, 12HR, 24HR, 48HR and 72HR forecast. These can be access by using the time slider that is above the map. There are also static Surface Forecast charts from NOAA that show 6 different forecast time periods.

If there are other parts that you find cumbersome, we would love to hear specifics so wen continue to implement changes over the rest of the year.

Thanks again.
