WSI announced Sunday the release of Pilotbrief Mobile, which offers users the company’s aviation weather and hazard products via mobile devices like the Blackberry, Treo, and iPhone. They system does not require installation of a software application on your device and is compatible with common “smartphone” internet browsers, but it does cost about $10 per month. The company says the service offers subscribers “a rich graphical” user interface and access to “the majority of graphical and textual products” offered by WSI’s Pilotbrief Online. It also offers a “snapshot” homepage to display decoded METAR and local NOWrad(R) for a user-defined area. “Wherever you are, you can get the aviation-quality weather you rely on,” says WSI director of product management, Paul Hathaway.
