Love it

Works great. Accurate. Screen a little busy with more information than I need
Pretty solid, could use a few improvements
by JaredC55555 on 2019/11/16 17:53
Overall, an incredible app. I wish it would default to the last used layers when the app is started, instead of always defaulting to show wind. Also, I wish the UI for the layers was a little more customizable. I’d like to take out all the layers I don’t use from the main panel. I’d like to clean it up a little, and be able to add other layers in as I need them. But the main layer picker is pretty cluttered.
Essential tool

Boating and Windy
by Ray-Ziggy on 2019/11/12 23:31
We used Windy extensively this summer while cruising over 2000 miles on 4 of the 5 Great Lakes. Proved to be a great tool for planning each segment of 60 days of boating.

I use Windy everytime I plan a trip to our local Channel Islands and the forecasts are very accurate and have not let me down. A bad forecast 40 miles out to sea is a very bad day— even can be deadly

Windy Observation
by L'll K on 2019/11/09 12:55
It would be nice to slow down the forwarding or time progression of the wind projection in the area you select. The reason is to better see the wind and it’s affect on the area of the water or location your interested in.
2 reasons I use Windy
by Jasperjet on 2019/11/09 03:35
I regularly hike in nearby mountains and fly gliders from a private sailplane airport about 100 miles from my home. Windy provides incredibly accurate information as to hourly variations of wind speed and direction which I use in planning my participation in these activities. I find the visual representation of the wind velocity fascinating.
Thanks

You Need to get this app
by John D. Rinehart on 2019/11/08 03:41
This app is probably the best app weather wise that I have. This has many different models and many types of suggestions on what your looking for. I have been interested in weather and this app is probably the best I’ve came across. This app is over the top and has everything in one app. The best part is that it’s free!!

Great app for weather geeks and pilots
by DoomMeister76 on 2019/11/06 13:17
I find Windy to be a very complete and useful application. Especially its ability to access the METARS at selected airports. The two things I would love to see added to this app are the ability to access single site live radar and tropical storm tracks. The wave data would also be a very useful feature for those that are on the water a lot. Either for business or pleasure boating.
Great for saltwater fishing
by John 21:6 on 2019/11/05 18:04

For the most part this app helps on planning fishing trips up and down the state. There are some days its a little off but there is not an exact science on wind , weather conditions.
Good predictions

I use a combination of weather sources for sailing, but every day I check Windy first for an overview of the situation. The graphics are beautiful and it’s easy to switch between different weather models. I’ve lately been using the weather radar to watch the progress of storms and it’s helped me avoid lightning-heavy areas!
Live for the outdoors
by Schuyler M on 2019/10/20 13:39
I live on the southern outer banks and spend lots of time on the water and it’s important to know what and when the wind and weather is going to change I also spend countless hours in the woods hunting deer and this app allows me to know wind directions so I can properly choose where I need to hunt. I refer to this app almost daily for proper wind information!
Windy is weather as it should be.

by Seattle Rex on 2019/10/17 06:35
And it pains me to do this ... But the rating nag API that lets users opt-out has been ‘required’ for over 2 years now, and Windy is still nagging me. Giving rating nags1 star is the only weapon I have left to fight back with. I get that ratings help you, but I opted-out. If you don’t care about my wants, then I don’t care about yours. That’s about as fair as this world gets. Everyone says they ‘only take a second’, but multiply that times the number of apps installed. It’s a long, long second.
Very very well designed
by P00ter on 2019/10/14 23:05
This is one of the best designed apps I've ever come across. It can show a surplus of information in such a visually intuitive manner, such that meteorological concepts become apparent to a layperson. Everything runs smoothly as well. Having a lot of fun exploring the world under all these overlays. It's like Google Maps, but like 100-dimensional.

Tons of Great info High learning curve
by LtlRedX on 2019/10/05 13:58
I’ve been searching for a replacement to Storm since they sold out to the weather channel & became mediocre. This is an awesome app with a LOT of info. The app’s ui is good but doesn’t feel intuitive but that *may* be because I’m also learning a new phone & iOS interface simultaneously. I’ve created a log-in so I’m committed to learning the app & I feel it’s going to be a valuable addition to my weather arsenal.

The Best Weather App
by waterfire52 on 2019/09/24 06:08
By far, the best weather app I’ve ever used. There is a feature that measures and forecasts rain or snow accumulation over time. The information the app contains is impressive. I’m still playing around with it. I pray they don’t do anything to change it for the worse like some other weather apps have done.
Great on iPhone 8, issues dragging the map on the 11
by Hiponautimous Potimus. on 2019/09/23 20:48
I loved this app so much! Having lived in 2 locations that are frequented by hurricanes, Florida & Coastal North Carolina, this app is a MUST during hurricane season. I used it all the time on my iPhone 8 with no issues. But I just got the iPhone 11, and noticed one issue I never had on the iPhone 8. And seeing no other reviews describing this same issue (the iPhone 11 has only been out now for 4 days), I felt I should report it just in case others have the same issue, and so maybe a fix can occur. I have tried restarting my phone and reinstalling the app, but problem persists. The issue happens when you try to drag the map to look at other locations. Instead of the animated map moving to reveal more of the map, it zooms in. Making it impossible to look at other locations, other than the default location. I was able to move it only a little but it was a battle getting it to respond at al and would still only do that while simultaneously zooming in. If I am doing something wrong, please let me know! But I still say it’s been the best visual weather app out there! And I hope this problem goes away soon! I will change my rating to 5 stars if I can get it to work again.

The best weather app out there
by Obama_in_2008 on 2018/09/14 19:35
I was a huge fan of Storm from WeatherUnderground and hadn't checked out the other options recently, but when The Weather Channel killed Storm and replaced it with a mediocre weather channel version I had a look at the other options and was very happy to find Windy. It's so much much better than the others, let me count (a few of) the ways: You can pick your forecast model! And then compare the different models to see where they differ! That to me is a game changer. The timeline along the bottom is so great to see how pressure and fronts will move - I feel like I've learned a lot just by using the app. The many layer options are great - set it for what you want to see and don't be distracted by what you don't. And of course the wind animation options make for a visually appealing interface. Seeing how the different altitude winds are moving and changing is so useful and interesting. I'd gladly pay money for this app, there are just so many great things to say about it. And if all you want is a sun, a cloud, or an umbrella for where you live that's there for you too. I was bummed when Storm was killed off but am so happy to have found this great app.
Wow...Absolutely Amazing!
by LAX20531 on 2019/04/05 19:59
This app is the example by which all other statistical apps should be judged. The info is from a huge number of sources and accurate. Historical data is available for multiple forecasts and aviation wx is available as well. I remember the disappointment many of us felt after losing the old Storm app. Well look no further because this app not only meets, but far exceeds it by light years. I’m a person who can appreciate outstanding graphical design and messaging, whether for an app or PowerPoint slide. The individual(s) who designed this have an excellent understanding of visual messaging. I’ve found a few issues for improvement: recommend making the settings icon the universal gear icon; sometimes the app displays Celsius even when Fh is selected, and to allow favoriting from within forecasts (ie selecting an airport from the map doesn’t allow favoriting, it must be typed in.). Of course YMMV as I’m still learning the navigation, but this is truly an app that drives informative engagement.
Use it all the time for long distance cruise planning as well as for local fishing trips
by sea bouy on 2019/08/05 13:46
I have weather XM subscription on my Garmin chart plotter, but it only gets me a wind view out 3 days. Windy gives me an outlook on wind and swell direction as far as a week out. I find this invaluable for our summer cruising in the Bahamas. It allows me to line up wind and waves to best suit my boat and allows me to give my passengers a better ride on passages. Together with Weather XM and internet weather reports, I can minimize bad weather experiences for my guests (and wife) so they will want to come back again and again! I use Windy more than any of the others mentioned because it’s so handy and can be taken easily from boat to boat. Wherever I carry my phone (which is everywhere) I can get wind and sea conditions. If you’re a boater, you will love this app.
Dependable and ACCURATE
by Your boi EAW on 2018/02/04 02:35
Amazing, Dependable, ect. any good word you could use double it! This app it VERY dependable! I live in the United States and not in Europe. I thought that it could be a stretch with getting a European Weather app when I live in the US but when they pretty much nailed the paths of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate I new it was time to switch. I had a problem I had no clue which on to get. Some friends from Indian who visited recommended this. It took about 5 minuets to figure out but once you do it is SO easy to use and so accurate I have used this in past winter storms of what to expect and I was more prepared than the rest of my family who was depending on the National Weather Service! Thank you so so much Windy Crew!
Storm Recovery
by Third Wind Jim on 2018/08/15 21:48
Since the Weather Channel ruined the Storm app, I turned to Windy to get the wind animation and multi-city forecasts that I was accustomed to. Windy provides all that I seek in a weather app, and more. It did take time to find things, and my iPad version still will only show 3 overlay options, but lots of other display choices I do not care about and did not select in the same column of choices. Once I (accidentally) found the meteograms I am fascinated, but wish there was some place to learn what the detailed meaning. I also wish that front symbols would be able to display with temperatures, wind, or rain. I find the thunderstorm info distracting and wish I could turn it off.
Rare “futurecast” feature
by Weeds1 on 2018/06/30 16:31
I really like the “futurecast” option which seems rare among weather apps. Other unique and useful features are the roadside camera links, snow depth maps, fog maps, and ocean info. I work outdoors much so I am always looking for a good weather app. This one is one of the best, if not the best. For suggested improvements, I wish there was an option for entering a list of reference locations for quick access to weather forecasts at those sites (this is common on most other weather apps). Movement of the location pin is a little odd as the pin remains stationary, but you move the map to change locations.
Windy Weather
by 52Balloo on 2019/01/05 14:43
I have found Windy to be one of the best weather apps available. I particularly like the ability to view four different weather models, and to look forward several days with the predictions. A few suggestions: It would be nice if you could see both the selected menu item AND the particular legend. Currently, after you select a specific item, I.e. rain accumulation, you have to X out of the menu before the ledge down come up at the bottom. It would be nice if you could see both at the same time and just circulate between menu items. The font is pretty small at the bottom...great data, but have a look at the formatting....in some cases things are impossible to read since they are overlapping, such as cloud altitudes. Rain vs. Snow accumulation.......it’s confusing. Looks to be the same physical accumulation data, but we know inches of snow isn’t inches of water.... Would be nice to be able to zoom the map like all other apps........instead of just having several different fixed scales. This is a wonderful app, and I encourage you to keep making it better. Thanks.
Great app for all weather lovers!!!
by D.R. Bell on 2019/09/08 19:33
This is one of my favorite free weather apps. It’s not just winds, which as a weather lover and sailor is wonderful, it has an awesome radar system. Shows lightning strikes that light up, wind and gusts, cloud cover, and a great real-time/future option for wind, jet streams, and tropical storms! So many options that took me a while to realize it had. Like GFS and Euro models for future weather and hurricanes. Honestly my number one go to for storm watching and 99% of all my weather information needs. Have turned probably hundreds of people like me on to this app! Keep it going because ya’ll are doing everything right!!!!
Great Companion with your current Weather app
by qazwe32 on 2019/07/16 06:36
I have my weatherbug app and I think this is great companion with weatherbug the big reason why is the 36 map layers I think that the whole lot of layers in the app and weatherbug has 18 that’s only half the layers. I like the wind and wind gust maps because you can storms. I think this very helpful for pilots, skydiving, paragliders and more. Also your latest addition extreme forcast if you think your getting a lot of rain it will show you if it’s normal, unusual, or extreme event Also again a great companion with your current weather app if accuweather or weatherbug or weather channel it’s great thank you
Most accurate weather app
by LoLaMC on 2019/09/21 15:39
Because this app gives you the choice between several different forecast models, it allows you to choose the one that is most accurate for your region. It is just a pity that one cannot choose what model is displayed in the widget/today extension. Only GFS and Meteolblue work for me and I would like to be able to pick one of the two for the widget, instead I am stuck with ECMWF. I would also like to be able to choose the default view when opening the app, right now it goes straight to wind but I am mostly interested in rain.
Best in class!
by Jinx Dinkum on 2019/08/26 18:30
I’m a longtime Wunderground fan, and loved their “Storm” app, which The Weather Channel acquired and ruined. I went looking for another app with Storm’s detail and layering options, and found something even better. I can’t imagine a more versatile, comprehensive weather app, and it’s very sweet icing on the cake that it’s free, and respects your privacy. Get this app!... and please consider making a contribution. Work this good should be supported. Also: LOVE being able to see wave and swell direction and height. We spend a lot of time on the coast, and it’s great to be able to see what the ocean will be doing.
Excellent app
by Coney ledge on 2018/05/29 12:32
This app is wonderful for planning and for knowing what’s going on outside. The various layers are super-helpful for Flight planning as well. The simple and intuitive interface is very user friendly. I like that one can get as detailed as they want, with meteograms, etc. Before it was changed, I used to use the Storm app as a supplement, because it showed surface prog charts and storm tracks. Those would be two layers that this app could benefit from ASAP. The other Change I would make would be to be able to place several layers on at once (cloud base and CAPE, for example).
Overwhelming Options, Underwhelming Performance
by Meisty on 2018/05/27 22:10
I really wanted to like this app. It offers so, so much in terms of data sources, displays, predictions, and potential usefulness. Unfortunately the app design does not provide adequate tools for users to choose and manage these options. Every data option is excessively detailed, simple choices, like F or C temp. display, cannot be saved even though the SAVE button is pressed. Display options for temp. gradients are inconsistent. Labels for features like the speed of radar animation are barely visible on an iPad and nearly invisible on iPhone. This app offers so much potential. It could have been great. Instead it comes across as a mess of sources that were combined with little thought about function and user experience.
All the information you need
by Fbskier on 2018/10/07 14:43
Amazing compilation of weather data and accurate modeling. As long as you have a cellular network, a truly local forecast is at your fingertips (not just the nearest weather office, which in my case may be 100 km or more from my location). Temperature, wind speed, cloud cover, cloud level, precipitation, radar and lightning are all right there and remarkably accurate. My colleagues used this in a remote camp in the Yukon Territory and could accurately determine conditions and forecasts for helicopter and fixed wing flying, saving a lot of jet fuel in the process.
Review for iPhone only
by Crewman No.6 on 2018/10/19 08:28
I used to think that Windy for iPhone did not work, but I think that I was using it incorrectly, as I’m used to the iPad version, and the phone version is different. I’ve been using Windy for at least six months on the iPad and it works quite well. I now thin the iPhone version is quite good as well. I like that one swipes the calendar beneath the time widget, instead of trying to drag the widget as one must on the iPad. I’d suggest this feature migrate to iPad as well. The other thing I’d like to see is to have winds and gusts display together, or better yet, have all selected data types display at once. Windy is a fine app.
Comprehensive global weather vizualization
by interd0g on 2019/03/31 14:59
Windy T gives you a view of the weather situation world wide with the ability to pan and zoom right to your neighborhood. Multiple layers of information can be superimposed not only for every aspect of conditions in real time motion, but specifics for activities such as flying, skiing ,sailing etc..You can run forward 10 days to see the future situation. Living in a hurricane zone I can follow any sytem as it approaches and recently the ECMWF model you can use has been uncannily accurate. There is too much to this app to describe here. Try it.
Weather! Hallelujah!
by Acornbringer on 2017/10/26 21:20
Been looking for weather apps for a while and saw some other app using a source called "Windy" for their radar data so I thought I would check it out. Low and behold Windy turned out to be the weather app of my dreams! So easy to use and so much visual and statistical data at my fingertips. And with the new visual update, things feel sleeker and look more appealing than ever with no features being compromised! For those looking for a no-nonsense and complete weather app, just stop looking and download this! Its premium quality for no cost. Great work on this great app! I hope to use it for a long time to come :) My feedback for the developer would be to keep it optimized and keep the interface clean and to the point. I have old hardware (iPhone 5s) and it would kill it for me if it stopes being as smooth as it is now to pop open and read/see the weather.
Still not a Storm killer
by Dr.Tony on 2019/08/08 02:10
This is a great app, no doubt, with more advanced wind data and comparable models, for example. But Storm Radar, for all its current bugs and weaknesses, still has some major advantages I can’t ignore, like future radar, likelihood of precipitation graph (not just amounts), simultaneous layers (in paid mode), storm tracks, and push notifications. This means I can’t totally jump ship, as much as I want to. I would also ask that webcams be able to be hidden. But make no mistake, this is a great app that focuses on providing lots of data instead of just being minimalist or entertaining.
Nearly Perfect
by ^^WeWatch^^ on 2019/09/02 19:48
I found this app while watching Dorian approach the US. It is now my favorite app for monitoring local wind speeds and the projected path of hurricanes like Dorian. Assuming we all survive Dorian, the only improvement I would love to see (and would put it at the top of my weather app collection) would be to add a temperature icon badge to the app icon. I would also suggest replacing the solid red background with an image of Dorian in all his terrifying glory as the image behind the W on the app icon so the temperature icon badge would contrast appropriately.
Excellent!! Best weather App there is!!
by oneilseamark on 2019/01/04 22:29
Living in North Carolina and having a place in the Florida Keys I’m always concerned about hurricanes. This app is my go to app and is great because it has three different models. It has unfortunately been right with both Irma last year and Florence this year. It started showing the correct tracks as much as four and five days out because you can click between the different models. I use this app Wunderground and Mike’s weather page. Also they continuously add improvements.
Great Map and App
by Not good for me on 2019/08/22 23:02
My family wife and daughter live in the Philippines. For now. Your app really let me be able to keep track of the weather there. As I worry about them so much. Especially because in order for us to get to our house on Daram, Samar we have to travel by boats. I love the way it predicts and shows current conditions of the waves and wind because we travel on pump boats and can become dangerous in high winds and heavy to high waves. Any way i just wanted to thank you for putting out such a good app. Daddy
Fantastic but needs just a little more
by xS7 on 2019/04/09 15:28
Windy is loaded with features and information, multiple weather models and lots of ways to display the data. It’s definitely not for the person who doesn’t understand weather systems, but it’s fantastic for everyone who wants real weather data, not the fake “certainty” of WeatherBug or Storm Radar. My only wishes for Windy would be to add weather fronts to the graphics options and have a higher resolution radar display.
Beyond what I could have imagined
by Pahoo_Katawah on 2019/01/02 22:30
This app is so good, I continue to be speechless even after a month of solid usage. It gives me the ability to create custom maps with my color preferences and then watch the flow as time progresses through a range of days. And that is only one thing among many. Since I use it on an iPad and I have somewhat large fingers it can be a little tricky sometimes but once done, it’s saved and I can enjoy the results of my handiwork. I thought I saw it was available for a Windows PC/Laptop and if so, next time I’m on I’m going to get it. Update: I just have to remove 2 ⭐️ because I’m losing my custom color schemes with every update and now I no longer bother with them because it takes too much time. Update2: I just saw that I received a response from the developer last July! I never expected one so now I’m going to add back a Star ⭐️ and follow up with them as they suggested! 😇
Weather app with info!!
by Electrikmc on 2019/08/24 22:39
All the other weather apps remind me of the weather on tv with the fake little pictures showing clouds and smiley sunshine’s! This app does it all I even had to come and re-vamp my old review just to say how awesome it was and has became! From the beautiful graphics on the satellite layers to the different options of radar to view. I love this app!! For even some one wanting just a basic week view to people looking to learn how it all works this is the app!
Simply the best
by Dogstain on 2018/10/19 13:32
This is my favorite weather tool. The radar and lightning depiction are really convenient to use. The true power of this incredible weather app is in its ability to show 4 different forecast models. It is easy to use the forecasts and compare any time in the future amongst models to see if there is a consensus among them. There are so many more features that I can’t even get into here. But let’s suffice it to say that if your plans involve the outdoors at all you need this app.
All good - was: Latest update does not work anymore
by WhichNicknameIsNotYetTaken on 2019/06/16 21:46
This was my original review: “I just installed the latest update, and on my iPhone X with latest version of iOS, the app hangs on the splash screen. I’ve tried to kill the app and restart multiple times, let it sit for several minutes, but it never gets passed the splash screen.” I have now rebooted my phone, and Windy comes up again. It’s a beautiful app - just as it was prior to the update.
Awesome! However...
by Qwood58 on 2017/11/24 02:10
The latest update has hidden the altitude slider & made it less convenient to use. Yes, it's still there. But it must be opened each time to use it. Whereas it was right on the main screen in the past, making quick adjustments for comparison very quick & easy. For this less than ideal decision, I've snagged 1 star. But for remaining an awesome FREE app, albeit this little blunder, you get to keep the other 4 stars. How about correcting that tiny error in judgement so I can give you your other star back as I really have no use for it.
The BEST!!
by Cavewomancafe on 2018/03/11 04:02
We live on an outer island in the San Juan Islands of Washington state. The only way on and off our island is with a boat or a float plane. Knowing what the weather and winds are going to do is essential to our safety and the safety of our boats. We have found that Windy is the most reliable and consistently correct weather app we have used so far. We downloaded it in September, it is now March, and only once was Windy incorrect. ONLY ONCE! Pretty darned good! Windy, keep up the good work! You are keeping us safe and happy!!
My favorite app
by _skuuurp on 2019/06/30 18:09
I never leave reviews for apps because I find it time consuming and pointless... but Windy is such a fantastic app (and free nonetheless) that I had no choice but to leave a review. The app is clean, user friendly, information rich, and useful. You can glean hyper deep analytical information as well as very surface level information about any type of weather condition you can think of plus more. Can not recommend enough.
FINALLY a replacement for Storm
by Dantetron on 2019/03/14 21:45
When the popular weather app “Storm” was gobbled up by the Weather Channel I was crushed. And their paint job to that app was nothing close to the experience I was used to. Windy is finally that app that fills the empty void. In a market flooded with weather apps, none have this slick, intuitive, clean interface with so much information at my fingertips, I’m sure I haven’t discovered it all yet. These guys know what their doing and it’s great.
Love this app!
by Ayo Amy on 2018/01/04 11:31
I have a habit of leaving my location off most of the time to save battery. I noticed when I press the home button it would show me the location and weather of Suffolk county instead of where I am actually located. Not much of an issue if I just turned my location service on but it would be nice to press the button and see the weather update for my area without my location activated.
Excellent Reference
by AlpineClimbr on 2017/10/01 02:34
This is a great app and an excellent reference. I don't understand and the negativity. If you are relying on a iPhone app to give you critical make-or-break marine weather decisions then you probably don't belong offshore. If you use this app as a single component in a well thought out approach to weather forecasting then you're going to love it. It loads fast, has great data (often more accurate than the NBDC text forecasts) and is easy to use.
Active tense weather report where and when
by GETEVERSURFER on 2019/02/16 20:20
Set up your thresholds for what ever conditions you are looking for and when they occur you get notified. Although it is always at your own risk. For a surfer, knowing when and where surf will occur is all dependent on a tide, wind, and waves. Sometimes that is simply setting up a pointer and saving it as a favorite bookmark on the map. And when the conditions occur you’re notified what deviates from the norm.
Best weather app hands down anywhere.
by Will Kochtitzky on 2019/02/12 01:09
Great graphics, model data, and radar As a scientist this is by far the best app for weather I have ever seen. Amazing data visualization and excellent descriptions of model limitations. If you don’t have this app, you are missing out big time. Makes watching the weather even more fun and with windy you know what’s coming and associated uncertainties! Everyone, everywhere should have this app (and donate)!
Love
by mbciad on 2018/12/14 10:14
Love this app. I am not using it on a regular basis yet because I am moving from Indiana to Florida in two months. I love saltwater fishing especially on the surf. Knowing the wind direction, speed, etc will be very useful for me. God sent!!!!! It’s great. I check out the wind, etc. all the time in The Florida area as if I were there already and contemplate how it would affect my fishing area, and outcome. Excited to the app when I have actually relocated. Can’t wait. GREAT APP 😃
The best weather app ever
by kimo kola on 2019/08/08 05:20
We live in Hawaii and spend most of out time outside either sailing, paddling outrigger canoes of all sizes, surfing, hiking or just walking around town. (Lahaina). Most of the time your info is spot on and the many options make the experience challenging as well as informative. Thank you for all the work you folks do to bring this special feature to us and so many others. Mahalo, Jim and Jane Kohler
Pretty solid, could use a few improvements
by JaredC55555 on 2019/11/16 17:53
Overall, an incredible app. I wish it would default to the last used layers when the app is started, instead of always defaulting to show wind. Also, I wish the UI for the layers was a little more customizable. I’d like to take out all the layers I don’t use from the main panel. I’d like to clean it up a little, and be able to add other layers in as I need them. But the main layer picker is pretty cluttered.
Awesome App!
by er01 on 2019/08/19 19:56
Please add the option for weather fronts. Also, on visible satellite please make the maps same color as the maps in infrared. This will work much better than the dark blue background ..... which is just too dark to see any map detail. Finally, on vis sat map please add blue dot 🔵 showing current location (like on the weather radar map). This app is 10 STARS! Deleted storm radar, happily! Thanks Windy.
One of the best
by RavenRage21 on 2019/06/04 06:04
I’ve used quite a few weather apps in the past few years but I must say Windy is by far one of the best I’ve used. The level of detail, the way it’s laid out and the accuracy is amazing to say the least. Many apps have great UI’s but accuracy levels aren’t that great and vice versa. Happy to say that windy is perhaps the best of both accuracy and wonderful design UI. Do keep up the good work.
Perfect for further reaching weather planning!
by Blahblahshrushrug333 on 2018/10/27 18:12
I like to ride my motorcycle as much as possible and this app has been essential in keeping me dry while doing that. Many weather apps only provide radar forecasts only up to a couple of hours with only one source. Windy provides radar forecasts up to a week with 3 sources allowing me to accurately gauge the feasibility of me riding into work on any given day!
Requesting a combined wind and radar map
by kproth on 2018/11/07 23:36
This app manages to pack a TON of info into a small screen. On the whole it’s really really nice. What I’d like to see improved is a combination wind speed and radar map (with both animated layers merged together into one view). Your animated wind speed map is amazing; it would be awesome to not have to flip between two maps to see Radar too. Note - the MyRadar iOS app offers this combined map option, but its wind speed animation is kind of ugly.
My favorite weather app by far.
by rickmoody on 2017/10/25 23:50
This shows just about everything that an amateur weather buff would like. It's not as localized as other apps but this gives a greater picture overall. The only fault I have found is the forecast temperature for my area, So Cal, are lower than reality. It was 105° today and the forecast was 99°. Other than that it's still my favorite weather app.
Great for Outdoor Activity Planning
by Haley_Hikes on 2018/12/31 04:43
I live in the Pacific Northwest where the mountains and frequent rain make planning outdoor activities difficult. This is now my go-to app for hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing. I use anytime I’m planning to do one of those things and it provides information that’s hard to find elsewhere, like visibility and cloud base. I’ve also found that it’s very accurate and easy to use.
Tons of Great info High learning curve
by LtlRedX on 2019/10/05 13:58
I’ve been searching for a replacement to Storm since they sold out to the weather channel & became mediocre. This is an awesome app with a LOT of info. The app’s ui is good but doesn’t feel intuitive but that *may* be because I’m also learning a new phone & iOS interface simultaneously. I’ve created a log-in so I’m committed to learning the app & I feel it’s going to be a valuable addition to my weather arsenal.
Super site for sailing
by Thee Dulcinea on 2019/08/30 11:04
You can pay for other sites to sail with but none of them come close to the information and detail you get from Windy for free. Amazing amount of information, my favorites are, of course the wind and 7 day forecast but the sea temperature information which allows one to see the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic is fantastic. Your foolish, if going offshore without this app.
Augi
by EMDR1985 on 2018/11/05 15:23
I really like this app, but it takes a while to get used to it. It offers the ability to look at different forecast models which is really nice. However, it is a bit difficult to navigate at first and the graphics are not as clear as other apps I’ve used. The data display is very busy. Once I got used to it, and that took a while, I liked it a lot. I just wish it was easier to use and look at.
Great app for weather geeks and pilots
by DoomMeister76 on 2019/11/06 13:17
I find Windy to be a very complete and useful application. Especially its ability to access the METARS at selected airports. The two things I would love to see added to this app are the ability to access single site live radar and tropical storm tracks. The wave data would also be a very useful feature for those that are on the water a lot. Either for business or pleasure boating.
Excellent Support, Great App
by Cyndy Marks on 2018/07/03 03:46
I’m a nerd who reads reviews. I am very impressed with the developer’s consistent responses in the few cases where people had issues. As a business owner, I appreciate how difficult it can be sometimes. Kudos to the developers. As for the actual App, it’s really awesome. My husband is a pilot, we go boating in the bay and farther out for Grouper fishing. This App never disappoints. It’s also fun to look at, which is a plus!

Love it

Works great. Accurate. Screen a little busy with more information than I need
Pretty solid, could use a few improvements
by JaredC55555 on 2019/11/16 17:53
Overall, an incredible app. I wish it would default to the last used layers when the app is started, instead of always defaulting to show wind. Also, I wish the UI for the layers was a little more customizable. I’d like to take out all the layers I don’t use from the main panel. I’d like to clean it up a little, and be able to add other layers in as I need them. But the main layer picker is pretty cluttered.
Essential tool

Boating and Windy

I use Windy everytime I plan a trip to our local Channel Islands and the forecasts are very accurate and have not let me down. A bad forecast 40 miles out to sea is a very bad day— even can be deadly

Windy Observation
by L'll K on 2019/11/09 12:55
It would be nice to slow down the forwarding or time progression of the wind projection in the area you select. The reason is to better see the wind and it’s affect on the area of the water or location your interested in.
2 reasons I use Windy
by Jasperjet on 2019/11/09 03:35
I regularly hike in nearby mountains and fly gliders from a private sailplane airport about 100 miles from my home. Windy provides incredibly accurate information as to hourly variations of wind speed and direction which I use in planning my participation in these activities. I find the visual representation of the wind velocity fascinating.
Thanks

This app is probably the best app weather wise that I have. This has many different models and many types of suggestions on what your looking for. I have been interested in weather and this app is probably the best I’ve came across. This app is over the top and has everything in one app. The best part is that it’s free!!

Great app for weather geeks and pilots
by DoomMeister76 on 2019/11/06 13:17
I find Windy to be a very complete and useful application. Especially its ability to access the METARS at selected airports. The two things I would love to see added to this app are the ability to access single site live radar and tropical storm tracks. The wave data would also be a very useful feature for those that are on the water a lot. Either for business or pleasure boating.

I use a combination of weather sources for sailing, but every day I check Windy first for an overview of the situation. The graphics are beautiful and it’s easy to switch between different weather models. I’ve lately been using the weather radar to watch the progress of storms and it’s helped me avoid lightning-heavy areas!
Live for the outdoors

I live on the southern outer banks and spend lots of time on the water and it’s important to know what and when the wind and weather is going to change I also spend countless hours in the woods hunting deer and this app allows me to know wind directions so I can properly choose where I need to hunt. I refer to this app almost daily for proper wind information!

by Seattle Rex on 2019/10/17 06:35
And it pains me to do this ... But the rating nag API that lets users opt-out has been ‘required’ for over 2 years now, and Windy is still nagging me. Giving rating nags1 star is the only weapon I have left to fight back with. I get that ratings help you, but I opted-out. If you don’t care about my wants, then I don’t care about yours. That’s about as fair as this world gets. Everyone says they ‘only take a second’, but multiply that times the number of apps installed. It’s a long, long second.
Very very well designed
by P00ter on 2019/10/14 23:05
This is one of the best designed apps I've ever come across. It can show a surplus of information in such a visually intuitive manner, such that meteorological concepts become apparent to a layperson. Everything runs smoothly as well. Having a lot of fun exploring the world under all these overlays. It's like Google Maps, but like 100-dimensional.

I’ve been searching for a replacement to Storm since they sold out to the weather channel & became mediocre. This is an awesome app with a LOT of info. The app’s ui is good but doesn’t feel intuitive but that *may* be because I’m also learning a new phone & iOS interface simultaneously. I’ve created a log-in so I’m committed to learning the app & I feel it’s going to be a valuable addition to my weather arsenal.

The Best Weather App
by waterfire52 on 2019/09/24 06:08
By far, the best weather app I’ve ever used. There is a feature that measures and forecasts rain or snow accumulation over time. The information the app contains is impressive. I’m still playing around with it. I pray they don’t do anything to change it for the worse like some other weather apps have done.
Great on iPhone 8, issues dragging the map on the 11
by Hiponautimous Potimus. on 2019/09/23 20:48
I loved this app so much! Having lived in 2 locations that are frequented by hurricanes, Florida & Coastal North Carolina, this app is a MUST during hurricane season. I used it all the time on my iPhone 8 with no issues. But I just got the iPhone 11, and noticed one issue I never had on the iPhone 8. And seeing no other reviews describing this same issue (the iPhone 11 has only been out now for 4 days), I felt I should report it just in case others have the same issue, and so maybe a fix can occur. I have tried restarting my phone and reinstalling the app, but problem persists. The issue happens when you try to drag the map to look at other locations. Instead of the animated map moving to reveal more of the map, it zooms in. Making it impossible to look at other locations, other than the default location. I was able to move it only a little but it was a battle getting it to respond at al and would still only do that while simultaneously zooming in. If I am doing something wrong, please let me know! But I still say it’s been the best visual weather app out there! And I hope this problem goes away soon! I will change my rating to 5 stars if I can get it to work again.

The best weather app out there
by Obama_in_2008 on 2018/09/14 19:35
I was a huge fan of Storm from WeatherUnderground and hadn't checked out the other options recently, but when The Weather Channel killed Storm and replaced it with a mediocre weather channel version I had a look at the other options and was very happy to find Windy. It's so much much better than the others, let me count (a few of) the ways: You can pick your forecast model! And then compare the different models to see where they differ! That to me is a game changer. The timeline along the bottom is so great to see how pressure and fronts will move - I feel like I've learned a lot just by using the app. The many layer options are great - set it for what you want to see and don't be distracted by what you don't. And of course the wind animation options make for a visually appealing interface. Seeing how the different altitude winds are moving and changing is so useful and interesting. I'd gladly pay money for this app, there are just so many great things to say about it. And if all you want is a sun, a cloud, or an umbrella for where you live that's there for you too. I was bummed when Storm was killed off but am so happy to have found this great app.
Wow...Absolutely Amazing!
by LAX20531 on 2019/04/05 19:59
This app is the example by which all other statistical apps should be judged. The info is from a huge number of sources and accurate. Historical data is available for multiple forecasts and aviation wx is available as well. I remember the disappointment many of us felt after losing the old Storm app. Well look no further because this app not only meets, but far exceeds it by light years. I’m a person who can appreciate outstanding graphical design and messaging, whether for an app or PowerPoint slide. The individual(s) who designed this have an excellent understanding of visual messaging. I’ve found a few issues for improvement: recommend making the settings icon the universal gear icon; sometimes the app displays Celsius even when Fh is selected, and to allow favoriting from within forecasts (ie selecting an airport from the map doesn’t allow favoriting, it must be typed in.). Of course YMMV as I’m still learning the navigation, but this is truly an app that drives informative engagement.
Use it all the time for long distance cruise planning as well as for local fishing trips
by sea bouy on 2019/08/05 13:46
I have weather XM subscription on my Garmin chart plotter, but it only gets me a wind view out 3 days. Windy gives me an outlook on wind and swell direction as far as a week out. I find this invaluable for our summer cruising in the Bahamas. It allows me to line up wind and waves to best suit my boat and allows me to give my passengers a better ride on passages. Together with Weather XM and internet weather reports, I can minimize bad weather experiences for my guests (and wife) so they will want to come back again and again! I use Windy more than any of the others mentioned because it’s so handy and can be taken easily from boat to boat. Wherever I carry my phone (which is everywhere) I can get wind and sea conditions. If you’re a boater, you will love this app.

Amazing, Dependable, ect. any good word you could use double it! This app it VERY dependable! I live in the United States and not in Europe. I thought that it could be a stretch with getting a European Weather app when I live in the US but when they pretty much nailed the paths of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate I new it was time to switch. I had a problem I had no clue which on to get. Some friends from Indian who visited recommended this. It took about 5 minuets to figure out but once you do it is SO easy to use and so accurate I have used this in past winter storms of what to expect and I was more prepared than the rest of my family who was depending on the National Weather Service! Thank you so so much Windy Crew!
Storm Recovery
by Third Wind Jim on 2018/08/15 21:48
Since the Weather Channel ruined the Storm app, I turned to Windy to get the wind animation and multi-city forecasts that I was accustomed to. Windy provides all that I seek in a weather app, and more. It did take time to find things, and my iPad version still will only show 3 overlay options, but lots of other display choices I do not care about and did not select in the same column of choices. Once I (accidentally) found the meteograms I am fascinated, but wish there was some place to learn what the detailed meaning. I also wish that front symbols would be able to display with temperatures, wind, or rain. I find the thunderstorm info distracting and wish I could turn it off.
Rare “futurecast” feature
by Weeds1 on 2018/06/30 16:31
I really like the “futurecast” option which seems rare among weather apps. Other unique and useful features are the roadside camera links, snow depth maps, fog maps, and ocean info. I work outdoors much so I am always looking for a good weather app. This one is one of the best, if not the best. For suggested improvements, I wish there was an option for entering a list of reference locations for quick access to weather forecasts at those sites (this is common on most other weather apps). Movement of the location pin is a little odd as the pin remains stationary, but you move the map to change locations.
Windy Weather
by 52Balloo on 2019/01/05 14:43
I have found Windy to be one of the best weather apps available. I particularly like the ability to view four different weather models, and to look forward several days with the predictions. A few suggestions: It would be nice if you could see both the selected menu item AND the particular legend. Currently, after you select a specific item, I.e. rain accumulation, you have to X out of the menu before the ledge down come up at the bottom. It would be nice if you could see both at the same time and just circulate between menu items. The font is pretty small at the bottom...great data, but have a look at the formatting....in some cases things are impossible to read since they are overlapping, such as cloud altitudes. Rain vs. Snow accumulation.......it’s confusing. Looks to be the same physical accumulation data, but we know inches of snow isn’t inches of water.... Would be nice to be able to zoom the map like all other apps........instead of just having several different fixed scales. This is a wonderful app, and I encourage you to keep making it better. Thanks.
Great app for all weather lovers!!!
by D.R. Bell on 2019/09/08 19:33
This is one of my favorite free weather apps. It’s not just winds, which as a weather lover and sailor is wonderful, it has an awesome radar system. Shows lightning strikes that light up, wind and gusts, cloud cover, and a great real-time/future option for wind, jet streams, and tropical storms! So many options that took me a while to realize it had. Like GFS and Euro models for future weather and hurricanes. Honestly my number one go to for storm watching and 99% of all my weather information needs. Have turned probably hundreds of people like me on to this app! Keep it going because ya’ll are doing everything right!!!!
Great Companion with your current Weather app
by qazwe32 on 2019/07/16 06:36
I have my weatherbug app and I think this is great companion with weatherbug the big reason why is the 36 map layers I think that the whole lot of layers in the app and weatherbug has 18 that’s only half the layers. I like the wind and wind gust maps because you can storms. I think this very helpful for pilots, skydiving, paragliders and more. Also your latest addition extreme forcast if you think your getting a lot of rain it will show you if it’s normal, unusual, or extreme event Also again a great companion with your current weather app if accuweather or weatherbug or weather channel it’s great thank you
Most accurate weather app
by LoLaMC on 2019/09/21 15:39
Because this app gives you the choice between several different forecast models, it allows you to choose the one that is most accurate for your region. It is just a pity that one cannot choose what model is displayed in the widget/today extension. Only GFS and Meteolblue work for me and I would like to be able to pick one of the two for the widget, instead I am stuck with ECMWF. I would also like to be able to choose the default view when opening the app, right now it goes straight to wind but I am mostly interested in rain.
Best in class!
by Jinx Dinkum on 2019/08/26 18:30
I’m a longtime Wunderground fan, and loved their “Storm” app, which The Weather Channel acquired and ruined. I went looking for another app with Storm’s detail and layering options, and found something even better. I can’t imagine a more versatile, comprehensive weather app, and it’s very sweet icing on the cake that it’s free, and respects your privacy. Get this app!... and please consider making a contribution. Work this good should be supported. Also: LOVE being able to see wave and swell direction and height. We spend a lot of time on the coast, and it’s great to be able to see what the ocean will be doing.
Excellent app
by Coney ledge on 2018/05/29 12:32
This app is wonderful for planning and for knowing what’s going on outside. The various layers are super-helpful for Flight planning as well. The simple and intuitive interface is very user friendly. I like that one can get as detailed as they want, with meteograms, etc. Before it was changed, I used to use the Storm app as a supplement, because it showed surface prog charts and storm tracks. Those would be two layers that this app could benefit from ASAP. The other Change I would make would be to be able to place several layers on at once (cloud base and CAPE, for example).
Overwhelming Options, Underwhelming Performance
by Meisty on 2018/05/27 22:10
I really wanted to like this app. It offers so, so much in terms of data sources, displays, predictions, and potential usefulness. Unfortunately the app design does not provide adequate tools for users to choose and manage these options. Every data option is excessively detailed, simple choices, like F or C temp. display, cannot be saved even though the SAVE button is pressed. Display options for temp. gradients are inconsistent. Labels for features like the speed of radar animation are barely visible on an iPad and nearly invisible on iPhone. This app offers so much potential. It could have been great. Instead it comes across as a mess of sources that were combined with little thought about function and user experience.
All the information you need
by Fbskier on 2018/10/07 14:43
Amazing compilation of weather data and accurate modeling. As long as you have a cellular network, a truly local forecast is at your fingertips (not just the nearest weather office, which in my case may be 100 km or more from my location). Temperature, wind speed, cloud cover, cloud level, precipitation, radar and lightning are all right there and remarkably accurate. My colleagues used this in a remote camp in the Yukon Territory and could accurately determine conditions and forecasts for helicopter and fixed wing flying, saving a lot of jet fuel in the process.
Review for iPhone only
by Crewman No.6 on 2018/10/19 08:28
I used to think that Windy for iPhone did not work, but I think that I was using it incorrectly, as I’m used to the iPad version, and the phone version is different. I’ve been using Windy for at least six months on the iPad and it works quite well. I now thin the iPhone version is quite good as well. I like that one swipes the calendar beneath the time widget, instead of trying to drag the widget as one must on the iPad. I’d suggest this feature migrate to iPad as well. The other thing I’d like to see is to have winds and gusts display together, or better yet, have all selected data types display at once. Windy is a fine app.
Comprehensive global weather vizualization
by interd0g on 2019/03/31 14:59
Windy T gives you a view of the weather situation world wide with the ability to pan and zoom right to your neighborhood. Multiple layers of information can be superimposed not only for every aspect of conditions in real time motion, but specifics for activities such as flying, skiing ,sailing etc..You can run forward 10 days to see the future situation. Living in a hurricane zone I can follow any sytem as it approaches and recently the ECMWF model you can use has been uncannily accurate. There is too much to this app to describe here. Try it.
Weather! Hallelujah!
by Acornbringer on 2017/10/26 21:20
Been looking for weather apps for a while and saw some other app using a source called "Windy" for their radar data so I thought I would check it out. Low and behold Windy turned out to be the weather app of my dreams! So easy to use and so much visual and statistical data at my fingertips. And with the new visual update, things feel sleeker and look more appealing than ever with no features being compromised! For those looking for a no-nonsense and complete weather app, just stop looking and download this! Its premium quality for no cost. Great work on this great app! I hope to use it for a long time to come :) My feedback for the developer would be to keep it optimized and keep the interface clean and to the point. I have old hardware (iPhone 5s) and it would kill it for me if it stopes being as smooth as it is now to pop open and read/see the weather.
Still not a Storm killer
by Dr.Tony on 2019/08/08 02:10
This is a great app, no doubt, with more advanced wind data and comparable models, for example. But Storm Radar, for all its current bugs and weaknesses, still has some major advantages I can’t ignore, like future radar, likelihood of precipitation graph (not just amounts), simultaneous layers (in paid mode), storm tracks, and push notifications. This means I can’t totally jump ship, as much as I want to. I would also ask that webcams be able to be hidden. But make no mistake, this is a great app that focuses on providing lots of data instead of just being minimalist or entertaining.
Nearly Perfect
by ^^WeWatch^^ on 2019/09/02 19:48
I found this app while watching Dorian approach the US. It is now my favorite app for monitoring local wind speeds and the projected path of hurricanes like Dorian. Assuming we all survive Dorian, the only improvement I would love to see (and would put it at the top of my weather app collection) would be to add a temperature icon badge to the app icon. I would also suggest replacing the solid red background with an image of Dorian in all his terrifying glory as the image behind the W on the app icon so the temperature icon badge would contrast appropriately.
Excellent!! Best weather App there is!!
by oneilseamark on 2019/01/04 22:29
Living in North Carolina and having a place in the Florida Keys I’m always concerned about hurricanes. This app is my go to app and is great because it has three different models. It has unfortunately been right with both Irma last year and Florence this year. It started showing the correct tracks as much as four and five days out because you can click between the different models. I use this app Wunderground and Mike’s weather page. Also they continuously add improvements.
Great Map and App
by Not good for me on 2019/08/22 23:02
My family wife and daughter live in the Philippines. For now. Your app really let me be able to keep track of the weather there. As I worry about them so much. Especially because in order for us to get to our house on Daram, Samar we have to travel by boats. I love the way it predicts and shows current conditions of the waves and wind because we travel on pump boats and can become dangerous in high winds and heavy to high waves. Any way i just wanted to thank you for putting out such a good app. Daddy
Fantastic but needs just a little more
by xS7 on 2019/04/09 15:28
Windy is loaded with features and information, multiple weather models and lots of ways to display the data. It’s definitely not for the person who doesn’t understand weather systems, but it’s fantastic for everyone who wants real weather data, not the fake “certainty” of WeatherBug or Storm Radar. My only wishes for Windy would be to add weather fronts to the graphics options and have a higher resolution radar display.
Beyond what I could have imagined
by Pahoo_Katawah on 2019/01/02 22:30
This app is so good, I continue to be speechless even after a month of solid usage. It gives me the ability to create custom maps with my color preferences and then watch the flow as time progresses through a range of days. And that is only one thing among many. Since I use it on an iPad and I have somewhat large fingers it can be a little tricky sometimes but once done, it’s saved and I can enjoy the results of my handiwork. I thought I saw it was available for a Windows PC/Laptop and if so, next time I’m on I’m going to get it. Update: I just have to remove 2 ⭐️ because I’m losing my custom color schemes with every update and now I no longer bother with them because it takes too much time. Update2: I just saw that I received a response from the developer last July! I never expected one so now I’m going to add back a Star ⭐️ and follow up with them as they suggested! 😇
Weather app with info!!
by Electrikmc on 2019/08/24 22:39
All the other weather apps remind me of the weather on tv with the fake little pictures showing clouds and smiley sunshine’s! This app does it all I even had to come and re-vamp my old review just to say how awesome it was and has became! From the beautiful graphics on the satellite layers to the different options of radar to view. I love this app!! For even some one wanting just a basic week view to people looking to learn how it all works this is the app!
Simply the best
by Dogstain on 2018/10/19 13:32
This is my favorite weather tool. The radar and lightning depiction are really convenient to use. The true power of this incredible weather app is in its ability to show 4 different forecast models. It is easy to use the forecasts and compare any time in the future amongst models to see if there is a consensus among them. There are so many more features that I can’t even get into here. But let’s suffice it to say that if your plans involve the outdoors at all you need this app.
All good - was: Latest update does not work anymore
by WhichNicknameIsNotYetTaken on 2019/06/16 21:46
This was my original review: “I just installed the latest update, and on my iPhone X with latest version of iOS, the app hangs on the splash screen. I’ve tried to kill the app and restart multiple times, let it sit for several minutes, but it never gets passed the splash screen.” I have now rebooted my phone, and Windy comes up again. It’s a beautiful app - just as it was prior to the update.
Awesome! However...
by Qwood58 on 2017/11/24 02:10
The latest update has hidden the altitude slider & made it less convenient to use. Yes, it's still there. But it must be opened each time to use it. Whereas it was right on the main screen in the past, making quick adjustments for comparison very quick & easy. For this less than ideal decision, I've snagged 1 star. But for remaining an awesome FREE app, albeit this little blunder, you get to keep the other 4 stars. How about correcting that tiny error in judgement so I can give you your other star back as I really have no use for it.
The BEST!!
by Cavewomancafe on 2018/03/11 04:02
We live on an outer island in the San Juan Islands of Washington state. The only way on and off our island is with a boat or a float plane. Knowing what the weather and winds are going to do is essential to our safety and the safety of our boats. We have found that Windy is the most reliable and consistently correct weather app we have used so far. We downloaded it in September, it is now March, and only once was Windy incorrect. ONLY ONCE! Pretty darned good! Windy, keep up the good work! You are keeping us safe and happy!!
My favorite app
by _skuuurp on 2019/06/30 18:09
I never leave reviews for apps because I find it time consuming and pointless... but Windy is such a fantastic app (and free nonetheless) that I had no choice but to leave a review. The app is clean, user friendly, information rich, and useful. You can glean hyper deep analytical information as well as very surface level information about any type of weather condition you can think of plus more. Can not recommend enough.
FINALLY a replacement for Storm
by Dantetron on 2019/03/14 21:45
When the popular weather app “Storm” was gobbled up by the Weather Channel I was crushed. And their paint job to that app was nothing close to the experience I was used to. Windy is finally that app that fills the empty void. In a market flooded with weather apps, none have this slick, intuitive, clean interface with so much information at my fingertips, I’m sure I haven’t discovered it all yet. These guys know what their doing and it’s great.
Love this app!
by Ayo Amy on 2018/01/04 11:31
I have a habit of leaving my location off most of the time to save battery. I noticed when I press the home button it would show me the location and weather of Suffolk county instead of where I am actually located. Not much of an issue if I just turned my location service on but it would be nice to press the button and see the weather update for my area without my location activated.
Excellent Reference
by AlpineClimbr on 2017/10/01 02:34
This is a great app and an excellent reference. I don't understand and the negativity. If you are relying on a iPhone app to give you critical make-or-break marine weather decisions then you probably don't belong offshore. If you use this app as a single component in a well thought out approach to weather forecasting then you're going to love it. It loads fast, has great data (often more accurate than the NBDC text forecasts) and is easy to use.
Active tense weather report where and when
by GETEVERSURFER on 2019/02/16 20:20
Set up your thresholds for what ever conditions you are looking for and when they occur you get notified. Although it is always at your own risk. For a surfer, knowing when and where surf will occur is all dependent on a tide, wind, and waves. Sometimes that is simply setting up a pointer and saving it as a favorite bookmark on the map. And when the conditions occur you’re notified what deviates from the norm.
Best weather app hands down anywhere.
by Will Kochtitzky on 2019/02/12 01:09
Great graphics, model data, and radar As a scientist this is by far the best app for weather I have ever seen. Amazing data visualization and excellent descriptions of model limitations. If you don’t have this app, you are missing out big time. Makes watching the weather even more fun and with windy you know what’s coming and associated uncertainties! Everyone, everywhere should have this app (and donate)!
Love
by mbciad on 2018/12/14 10:14
Love this app. I am not using it on a regular basis yet because I am moving from Indiana to Florida in two months. I love saltwater fishing especially on the surf. Knowing the wind direction, speed, etc will be very useful for me. God sent!!!!! It’s great. I check out the wind, etc. all the time in The Florida area as if I were there already and contemplate how it would affect my fishing area, and outcome. Excited to the app when I have actually relocated. Can’t wait. GREAT APP 😃
The best weather app ever
by kimo kola on 2019/08/08 05:20
We live in Hawaii and spend most of out time outside either sailing, paddling outrigger canoes of all sizes, surfing, hiking or just walking around town. (Lahaina). Most of the time your info is spot on and the many options make the experience challenging as well as informative. Thank you for all the work you folks do to bring this special feature to us and so many others. Mahalo, Jim and Jane Kohler
Pretty solid, could use a few improvements
by JaredC55555 on 2019/11/16 17:53
Overall, an incredible app. I wish it would default to the last used layers when the app is started, instead of always defaulting to show wind. Also, I wish the UI for the layers was a little more customizable. I’d like to take out all the layers I don’t use from the main panel. I’d like to clean it up a little, and be able to add other layers in as I need them. But the main layer picker is pretty cluttered.
Awesome App!
by er01 on 2019/08/19 19:56
Please add the option for weather fronts. Also, on visible satellite please make the maps same color as the maps in infrared. This will work much better than the dark blue background ..... which is just too dark to see any map detail. Finally, on vis sat map please add blue dot 🔵 showing current location (like on the weather radar map). This app is 10 STARS! Deleted storm radar, happily! Thanks Windy.
One of the best
by RavenRage21 on 2019/06/04 06:04
I’ve used quite a few weather apps in the past few years but I must say Windy is by far one of the best I’ve used. The level of detail, the way it’s laid out and the accuracy is amazing to say the least. Many apps have great UI’s but accuracy levels aren’t that great and vice versa. Happy to say that windy is perhaps the best of both accuracy and wonderful design UI. Do keep up the good work.
Perfect for further reaching weather planning!
by Blahblahshrushrug333 on 2018/10/27 18:12
I like to ride my motorcycle as much as possible and this app has been essential in keeping me dry while doing that. Many weather apps only provide radar forecasts only up to a couple of hours with only one source. Windy provides radar forecasts up to a week with 3 sources allowing me to accurately gauge the feasibility of me riding into work on any given day!
Requesting a combined wind and radar map
by kproth on 2018/11/07 23:36
This app manages to pack a TON of info into a small screen. On the whole it’s really really nice. What I’d like to see improved is a combination wind speed and radar map (with both animated layers merged together into one view). Your animated wind speed map is amazing; it would be awesome to not have to flip between two maps to see Radar too. Note - the MyRadar iOS app offers this combined map option, but its wind speed animation is kind of ugly.
My favorite weather app by far.
by rickmoody on 2017/10/25 23:50
This shows just about everything that an amateur weather buff would like. It's not as localized as other apps but this gives a greater picture overall. The only fault I have found is the forecast temperature for my area, So Cal, are lower than reality. It was 105° today and the forecast was 99°. Other than that it's still my favorite weather app.
Great for Outdoor Activity Planning
by Haley_Hikes on 2018/12/31 04:43
I live in the Pacific Northwest where the mountains and frequent rain make planning outdoor activities difficult. This is now my go-to app for hiking, snowshoeing, and skiing. I use anytime I’m planning to do one of those things and it provides information that’s hard to find elsewhere, like visibility and cloud base. I’ve also found that it’s very accurate and easy to use.
Tons of Great info High learning curve
by LtlRedX on 2019/10/05 13:58
I’ve been searching for a replacement to Storm since they sold out to the weather channel & became mediocre. This is an awesome app with a LOT of info. The app’s ui is good but doesn’t feel intuitive but that *may* be because I’m also learning a new phone & iOS interface simultaneously. I’ve created a log-in so I’m committed to learning the app & I feel it’s going to be a valuable addition to my weather arsenal.
Super site for sailing
by Thee Dulcinea on 2019/08/30 11:04
You can pay for other sites to sail with but none of them come close to the information and detail you get from Windy for free. Amazing amount of information, my favorites are, of course the wind and 7 day forecast but the sea temperature information which allows one to see the Gulf Stream in the Atlantic is fantastic. Your foolish, if going offshore without this app.
Augi
by EMDR1985 on 2018/11/05 15:23
I really like this app, but it takes a while to get used to it. It offers the ability to look at different forecast models which is really nice. However, it is a bit difficult to navigate at first and the graphics are not as clear as other apps I’ve used. The data display is very busy. Once I got used to it, and that took a while, I liked it a lot. I just wish it was easier to use and look at.
Great app for weather geeks and pilots
by DoomMeister76 on 2019/11/06 13:17
I find Windy to be a very complete and useful application. Especially its ability to access the METARS at selected airports. The two things I would love to see added to this app are the ability to access single site live radar and tropical storm tracks. The wave data would also be a very useful feature for those that are on the water a lot. Either for business or pleasure boating.
Excellent Support, Great App
by Cyndy Marks on 2018/07/03 03:46
I’m a nerd who reads reviews. I am very impressed with the developer’s consistent responses in the few cases where people had issues. As a business owner, I appreciate how difficult it can be sometimes. Kudos to the developers. As for the actual App, it’s really awesome. My husband is a pilot, we go boating in the bay and farther out for Grouper fishing. This App never disappoints. It’s also fun to look at, which is a plus!
