iPad used as a permanent Tempest display

I’m using an old iPad 2, mounted on the wall, as a display for my Tempest data using the Weatherflow app. This works very well, except that very occasionally the display stops updating, and I have to minimise the app and relaunch it to show current information. I’m not sure if this is a ‘feature’ of the iPad or the app, but I’d like to fix it. Any ideas or suggestions?

I notice it will stop updating if the internet connection is lost… even momentarily. Have not seen it in other circumstances.

Thanks George. That might be it. Internet and Wi-Fi appear solid, but the iPad is quite old, so might have ‘hiccups’.


I have noticed the same. I now use btstwx and have not seen a reoccurrence.

Thanks. I’ve just downloaded it.
