CommuteWX: An AppRadio Compatible Weather App

Over the last month or so there have been a few new apps that have joined the AppRadio compatibility environment. One of those is CommuteWX. This app became AppRadio compatible on October 12, 2012. CommuteWX is a weather information app. Read along for more details.

First and foremost, I must mention that the iOS version of CommuteWX is the one compatible with AppRadio and AppRadio 2. Also, the app is not free; it costs $2.99 in the App Store. This is not a review of the app since I haven't been able to use it with my AppRadio yet. The reason being I upgraded to the iPhone 5 recently and obviously can't use advanced app mode. I will wait until Pioneer works out a workaround for iPhone 5 compatibility with the AppRadio to write a full review.

CommuteWX features live weather radar maps
Here's detailed information about the app from the App Details in the App Store. From the looks of it, it seems like a useful app. I'm not sure if it will be worth the price though. We shall have to wait and see.

App Description:
CommuteWX provides real-time weather information (current, forecast, enroute) compatible with most app enabled car stereo devices. 
Weather conditions are featured in large, easy to read graphics in a streamlined user interface that's well suited for in-vehicle travel. Users will be provided real-time current and forecasted weather data (based on GPS location). 
* Large, easy to read graphics and text for optimal viewing 
* Current weather includes temperature, sky condition, wind direction ans speed, chance of percipitation and more. 
* Forecast Weather: CommuteWX provides forecasted weather Informationk for the current location via text and graphical output. Text Information includes weather for the present day, as well as for the next day; a 5-day forecast is also presented displaying predominate weather and high/low temperatures. 
* Intuitive Settings: Users have the option of selecting their preferred unit of measurement (US Customary or Metric) and rate of refresh for the weather reports.
