Charged $59.99 for annual
by Macie⚽️⚽️⚽️🏀🏀🏀 on 2020/01/17 19:40
Watch out signing up for this. After your one free week I get dinged $59.99 for the annual after forgetting to uninstall. Not happy.

NOT A FREE APP!
by darleneg20 on 2020/01/04 22:41
I am so sick of these apps that hide under the "free" app but they aren't free. Downloaded and couldn't even open it to see what it was like unless I signed up for a big 7 day trial, then $60.00. (Or $40.00) a year. Either way I wouldn't give $60.00 for someone to show me what they say is the wind. None of these forecaster apps work anymore. They are all part of a bigger agenda. Changing historic records to try and prove their global warming hoax. Done been busted. When instead we are in a solar minimum and an ice age is coming. Keep your app. Just blowing a lot of fake hot air anyway windy!
Not of fan of the App
by Hazmtr on 2019/12/31 02:57
Can’t say I really like the app anymore. I used it during Hurricane responses last year but now it never works. Even though I know I have internet connection, it tells me I don’t have it. Strongly considering deleting it off my devices.

Advertised on IG as a ski app. Showed screen shots of tracking snow, terrain status, and lift operations. I couldn't find any of that functionality in the actual app. Also... VERY expensive. $60 for a year.

Windy review
by Man Mom on 2019/11/28 23:53
I started using this app after traveling out west. It was very windy in many spots on our trip. It was fun to see the wind speeds on the app. Also use it now that I m home to check here and in favorite spots.
Jejuisland Packrafting
by climber120880 on 2019/11/26 22:22
Thank you, Windy. I use Windy to figure out which days are safe to Packraft paddle along the shorelines and to the islands surrounding Jejuisland Island in the Yellow Sea or South Korea. Without Windys info, I might find myself in unsafe paddling situations. I really appreciate the outdoor adventure this app helps me to enjoy. Paddle on! Scott

Annoying Notifications
by Aaasdddddaaaa on 2019/11/25 12:27
The developer uses the notifications to advertise new features and updates. These are much more common than actual weather related notifications, so they’re useless. Otherwise, a terrific app.

Horribly Innacurate
by robdog1235 on 2019/11/19 21:46
I’ve used windfinder, SailFlow, PredictWind, and the other Windy app, and this has to be the most inaccurate of all of them. Numerous times SailFlow, predictwind, windfinder and the other windy app have been in agreement with light wind (5-10 knots), and then this thing says something totally different (25-30 knots). I’m about ready to delete it, you guys need to get your act together and start working on getting your forecasts nailed down better.
I don’t want to pay!
by Jackie and Matt on 2019/11/19 09:11
Your prompts made me say yes to charge me in 7 days. I don’t want to be charged. I couldn’t find where to cancel. How can I cancel?
Deceptive money grab
by 😬😎😁 on 2019/11/16 16:39
Just take a look at the most recent ratings friends. i downloaded this app MONTHS ago and decided not to use it because of the cost for a “premium” experience. instead i went with magic seaweed as my primary environmental app. I was taking a nap today and woke to find that i was charged 15 bucks for an auto renewal service i never asked for. Get outta here with that shady business!!
Map is hidden
by xyzzy45 on 2019/11/16 14:11
In new version i can not see the map anymore. It is hidden by the precipitation overlay so you cannot see where you are.
Subscriptions by deception. Placement of continue without subscribing way out of line of sight
by Allen Lieberman on 2019/11/15 16:51
App itself is pretty much replicated by other apps that display wind grids such as Windy (red colored icon) or Ventusky so you may want to avoid this app to not accidentally get deceived into subscribing into a trial period of which turns into a paid subscription after a short period of time. Presentation of data is nice and app can be customized to purpose you want (water or air sports for starters) This app gets lots of accidental subscription complaints because the continue (or next button) is far away from the center of the screen when presented with subscribe choices. The actual button bypass committing to any subscription is black text on blue background in upper right corner. Very hard to see by design unless you have superior color differentiation vision. It is by design meant to not be seen. To re-iterate, if you don’t want to subscribe to any subscriptions, be sure to look for the option in upper right corner of screen when presented with free trial subscription options or you will be inadvertently subscribing to some very expensive subscriptions!
Awesome weather app
by Tgr95 on 2019/11/15 13:10
If you’re a hunter, this app is great for wind forecasts and helping you pick when and where to set up. Reliable and full of all kinds of weather geek info but presented in a way that’s easy to understand. Thanks for making a great app.
DO NOT GET THIS APP
by gscnk vdst on 2019/11/11 02:11
I SIGNED UP FOR 7 DAY FREE TRIAL. TRIED TO CANCEL BEFORE 7 DAYS AND COULDN'T, THEN AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED ME $59.99. TRICKED ME INTO PAYING AND DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE MONEY. DO NOT GET THIS APP.

by prime_member on 2019/11/08 16:35
I like the fact that I can position A marker over a spot even slightly off shore Oahu and can get wind at that spot.

Lots of good information
by MattH-VA on 2019/11/02 15:35
In my second year using this app and it’s my go-to for comprehensive weather information. The ability to choose what’s important to me and to have access to multiple models is great. Now, if the developer would just add the ability to verify/adjust time offset and make it easy to jump back to “now”. I paid for pro features and I use them.
Not so easy to cancel at any time

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP
by VaHami on 2019/10/29 17:12
Very deceptive practice. If you download you’re automatically signed up for a one year subscription. If I want a subscription I’ll sign up for it. I can’t believe Apple lets vendors do this crap. It’ll be a long time before I download anymore apps.

Marine forecast needs clearer tidal information
by mine9920 on 2019/10/14 20:56
NOAA marine navigation charts list water depth at average low tide. An approach like NOAA would eliminate confusion for mariners in the US. Otherwise a great program that I use whenever sailing.
Updated - still Incorrect tide tables
by Diana&Sean on 2019/10/14 02:55
Updated - several weeks ago (September) the developer sent an email asking for more details on my review stating the tides are incorrect. I sent a reply with the detailed location and have never heard back. With diurnal tides and an 8-10 ft tidal change twice per day having accurate tide info is critical. Developer, do you have a response? App looks great but the information for tides in our area is 100% inaccurate (times for high/low and height). The data doesn’t match any other source making it unusable.
Warning press the wrong button and
by DocBull8404 on 2019/10/10 18:42
You’ll get a subscription to this CRAPPY PROGRAM that’ll take an hour digging thru your iPhone or iPad trying to figure out how to cancel. Give me a break 30, 40, $50.00 to pay an idiot that created an app to tell you if it’s windy outside. Pissoff look out a window for free.

Accuracy isn’t that good
by sailorwannabe on 2019/08/17 14:13
Used the app about 15 times, and so far it’s about 50% accurate. And not just by a few knots, but Windy calls for 10-12k and gusts to 18k, but turns out to be 2-3k. Or Windy calls for 6-8k and gusts up to 10k, but turns out to be steady at 15-18k and gusts up to 20+k.
Big Lake
by Upnorth mark on 2019/08/16 16:13
Our lake is very large so if it’s windy you can’t go out. It will seem calm at home ,but with the app I can check closer to the shore line.

by Too much airport time on 2019/08/01 22:10
More than any other wind prediction app, I use windy to determine if I’m going out and who I’m likely going to bring. Extremely accurate, so I can determine if it’s a day for my wife and cocktail hour friends for a light cruise at 5-10 knots or serious sailing at 15 kts with folks that like more action.
Notificarion ads
by weezimp on 2019/07/29 19:20
Normally I turn on all weather app notifications but I had to turn this one’s off because the only notifications I get from it are ads. It’s one thing to show ads in an app but pushing them as notifications is bad form. Otherwise a decent app.

Suggestion for weather widget
by Wbrexaidfdmsk on 2019/07/24 01:29
Thank you for this app. It has really great presentations. The weather widget on the initial screen has temperature and wind velocity but not wind direction. It would be great to have wind direction as does the forecast detail current weather block, which shows it as point of the compass, for example NW. The arrow in a circle direction indicators require me to translate in my head to the point of the compass, for example, SSW. If only there was something that showed actual current and historical. Or maybe I’m not identifying it. The predictions, even short term, are pretty often wrong in my out of the way corner of the world. Current according to the prediction is pretty often wrong.

by Lauradotstevens on 2019/07/10 12:42
Downloaded the app hoping it would give us alerts when wind gusts above 35 knots. App does not seem accurate or helpful for keeping an eye on our canopy and tie downs. Uninstalling and canceling my subscription is very hard to figure out. Will need to contact support.
Better forecast
by .Pop.s on 2019/07/05 14:19
Have the Buoy at Crescent City gone adrift months ago this app is a must. You can plan which direction in which to navigate to and have a nice ride back. I understand it’s only a prediction.
Switch n bait
by skipitdamit on 2019/06/30 17:36
Not sure about this app. Just got swindled into a year subs, thinking it was another (much better!) app called....” windy”. How do you do that!? How can 2 apps have exactly the same name??.

Almost perfect
by phuket1 on 2019/06/28 02:06
Have used lots of wind forecast apps for sailing, kiting, this one is one of the best. Only one simple improvement that would really make it great would be if they coukd just add the capability to just create groups of favorite spots. Currently it seems they only allow one large list of favorites. Other wind apps you can create a groups of favorites.
Beware
by Mr. Soze' on 2019/06/23 16:42
Don’t get the free trial because it’s impossible to cancel before they bill you. They make sure it’s impossible to get out much like the mob. Run!
A good weather forecast tool!

I am a recreational gyroplane pilot and use Windy to help determine wind velocity and direction at my home airport during the week. It is a fast and easy way to plan ahead for the days and times that may be best for flying.
First time writing a review
by Rationaldna on 2019/06/19 11:46
I have literally purchased hundreds of apps and have never written a review for any of them. This app makes the exception and it made me break my rule. Where do i begin? This app. It is effective, easy with a gorgeous UI to match. If you think it's expensive, it's worth every penny. Let the development, packaging and presentation of this software be an example to all other app developers on how to do it right. Thank you!

by Jay Marquez on 2019/06/19 10:09
I check windy every time I’m considering going out on the water. It’s among the best wind forecast sources I’ve been able to find and easy to use. Just like PredictWind, my weather routing go to for navigation on long races, it relies on several forecasting models, but with an easy user interface for quick analysis of what kind of breeze I may encounter on a day sail or weekend trip.

Don’t waste your money on the pro version
by Abie Babie on 2019/06/12 00:11
I fell for it but the pro version is no different than the free one. I wanted the sailing alerts and local tides, so I bought it, but there are no alerts and no local tides. Nothing different from the free version. Plus the wind and tide info has absolutely nothing to do with what’s going on here. After several attempts to communicate with them, I got no response. They don’t care. They got my money. That’s all they care about.

I am in Trinidad and have referencing this app for about 4 months. I find it generally more accurate than most of the others that I use. Today was forecast by most of the other apps and the local Met services for heavy thundershowers and localised street flooding. Windy said mild to moderate rain which is what we have so far. Thank you.

I can’t guarantee everyone will feel it’s as accurate as I do, but always try to be the very best version that you can and try things a lot to get the most out of this.

We primarily use this app for boating. Great resource for checking actual wind conditions and forecasted conditions. Use the Pro version to compare the various wind models. Helpful to see trends and if models agree with each other or vary. One of several resources we us to plan our excursions.
A must have in Wyoming.

Most thorough and well designed wind/weather app
by Medic781 on 2018/04/07 02:51
I use this app for sailing. I have downloaded many wind forecast apps, but beyond dedicated weather routing software none come close to the beauty, design, and depth that windy has. First, the interface is simple, easy to navigate, customizable, and puts all the data you need right at your finger tips. Second is the breath of numerical models. In North America you have the trusty GSF, but you also get the benefits of the NAM model and the ICON model. In Europe they have a whole suite of models available as well. The wind data from all these models can be displayed at the same time so you can use the real world conditions to see which model seems to line up best and thus guide your choices. Third, local wind related shops can advertise in the app. I used it to find boat rentals near me when I go traveling. All in all it is a fantastic app. I wish the developer would make a similar platform except that would incorporate other parameters of the various numerical models so I could have this same interface for parameters such as winds aloft or precipitation. It would also be fun to have some of these other parameters on the global view as well.
Great, Versatile App for Water/Wind Sports
by So It's Come To This: on 2018/07/24 22:15
I almost exclusively use Windy for sailing in and around NYC. The different models coupled with the cloud, rain, and temperature forecasts are great. I haven’t found a better interface and I’ve tried nearly a dozen other apps before being told of Windy. I wish there was Apple Watch support like complications or a fully native Watch App. I have other sailing complications installed and being able to glance and current or forecasted wind conditions at once would be great. I also wish there were a way to lock or snap the view to the current date/time without hiding the legend. It would make a small but impactful change when using the app to look several hours/days ahead. Some stations are real-time and give you current sustained and gusts. It would be great if Windy could plot both over time in one view. Finally, I’ve noticed that tide data for the NYC area isn’t always accurate. Recently it said high tide was several hours sooner than my guide books indicated and so it’s not as helpful there as it should. Still, it’s a great app and part of my arsenal of tools to plan, prepare, and track my sailing. And I hope it continues to improve its features as it has added new forecasting models and data points.
Boater beware! Older boater that is.
by GDIndy on 2018/06/03 17:22
If your hoping to use this app for boating activities on the water be advised, the fonts, color contrasts and info lines are difficult enough to read from your recliner at home let alone a bouncing boat. There is no way on my iPhone to expand the font size to read or pinch down. Great info if your at dock planning a voyage but of little help if you are underway. :( Issue is visual. I cannot zoom into very small data bands to read comfortably. Need to have ability to zoom especially when moving.
Subscriptions by deception. Placement of continue without subscribing way out of line of sight
by Allen Lieberman on 2019/11/15 16:51
App itself is pretty much replicated by other apps that display wind grids such as Windy (red colored icon) or Ventusky so you may want to avoid this app to not accidentally get deceived into subscribing into a trial period of which turns into a paid subscription after a short period of time. Presentation of data is nice and app can be customized to purpose you want (water or air sports for starters) This app gets lots of accidental subscription complaints because the continue (or next button) is far away from the center of the screen when presented with subscribe choices. The actual button bypass committing to any subscription is black text on blue background in upper right corner. Very hard to see by design unless you have superior color differentiation vision. It is by design meant to not be seen. To re-iterate, if you don’t want to subscribe to any subscriptions, be sure to look for the option in upper right corner of screen when presented with free trial subscription options or you will be inadvertently subscribing to some very expensive subscriptions!
Suggestion for weather widget
by Wbrexaidfdmsk on 2019/07/24 01:29
Thank you for this app. It has really great presentations. The weather widget on the initial screen has temperature and wind velocity but not wind direction. It would be great to have wind direction as does the forecast detail current weather block, which shows it as point of the compass, for example NW. The arrow in a circle direction indicators require me to translate in my head to the point of the compass, for example, SSW. If only there was something that showed actual current and historical. Or maybe I’m not identifying it. The predictions, even short term, are pretty often wrong in my out of the way corner of the world. Current according to the prediction is pretty often wrong.
Great for Wind Direction and Speed
by Oki Jedi on 2018/07/12 13:21
The original site stated this would always be free. Sadly that did not stay true. However, if you are one that truly wants to know about wind and waves, this app is stellar. I really don’t like paying for an app, this one has been well worth it. Good for surfing, sailing, diving, kite flying or whatever activity you would like to know the accurate wind for. Especially helpful during the tropical storms that we get where I live. Get this app, you will not be disappointed!
First time writing a review
by Rationaldna on 2019/06/19 11:46
I have literally purchased hundreds of apps and have never written a review for any of them. This app makes the exception and it made me break my rule. Where do i begin? This app. It is effective, easy with a gorgeous UI to match. If you think it's expensive, it's worth every penny. Let the development, packaging and presentation of this software be an example to all other app developers on how to do it right. Thank you!
Brighter fonts, option to hide the offers
by m@tiphone on 2018/06/26 12:05
It is a great app that I use daily. However for an outdoor app, it is most of the times hard to read in sunlight. The hour font color is unreadable in sunlight. It is a grey shaded font in a black background. Good luck reading that. Also using the color black on the wind speed with a blue background is also not a great combination. Much better would be to use white for more contrast. Last remark is that I would like to see an option to hide the 'offers'. It takes screen space and have absolutely no interest in it.
Windy is amazing
by Cali redhead on 2018/08/26 15:13
I love how accurate windy is! This app is very useful for me and helps me to go my job better and keep things at home protected. Yesterday for example I saw that it was going to be very windy and there was a small tree with a awkwardly big trunk and I said to customers please don’t park there that three is swaying back and forth and it’s not even 10ft tall; next thing you know it fell over into a parking space and it would have damaged a vehicle.
Windy
by 87Love25 on 2018/01/27 15:33
Awesome App!!!! Beyond awesome everything we needed to fly RC planes at a glance to tell if it’s a fly day or not. You can even make your own locations and label them. I sent my friends a screen shot of there flying field and were blown away as I had labeled it as Robs flying field and the city’s name they were blowing me up and had to have the App.:-) you’ve done an amazing job with it. I don’t know how it could be Free. Great job hope for your continued success!!!
Lots of good information
by MattH-VA on 2019/11/02 15:35
In my second year using this app and it’s my go-to for comprehensive weather information. The ability to choose what’s important to me and to have access to multiple models is great. Now, if the developer would just add the ability to verify/adjust time offset and make it easy to jump back to “now”. I paid for pro features and I use them.
Almost what I need
by MSEP 10-10 on 2018/07/02 17:09
It would get 5 stars if it had all. After the old Storm app was revised to give better radar tools but fewer wind tools, I went looking for what was missing. The Windy tables with all info are perfect. But the map is not helpful. It would be better for me if rather than wind rose for the single station, it could integrate a map with all wind vectors from many sources along with the radar. Then it would have all my met, waves, and tide info in one place.
HighFlyGuy
by WileycoyotesfanIVXX on 2018/07/11 22:10
Using free version for wind checks to fly RC aircraft. Works great for basic overview of the conditions. Needs more frequent and precise weather updates. Weather changes quickly sometimes and the updates need to keep up. Also I find it to be a bit inaccurate on wind speeds. Example; currently it says 5mph winds, when I go outside the trees are bending sideways with strong consistent gusts that are way more than 5mph.
Simply the best
by John K4 on 2018/10/15 15:41
If you’re looking for comprehensive weather data with the ability to create notifications for ideal conditions, this is it. My only ask would be if the forecast could more easily be navigated to the current time. It’s sometimes difficult to side scroll to the current hour if you’ve lost track of the current day.
Not for the feint of heart
by GMak on 2018/09/22 18:46
This is a very confusing app for the casual user without an advanced degree in meteorology or atmospheric sciences. Basic info like “what direction is the wind blowing?” is represented by arrows which are pointing relative to the orientation of the separate true north arrow so it’s hard to tell EXACTLY which way the wind is blowing. If you have a degree in atmospheric science - which I don’t - this may be a great app. I can’t evaluate it on that level. But for the average user, info could be presented a lot more clearly.
Great App: room for improvement
by J@A/\/\M3E$S on 2018/07/31 01:16
I love to kite and I have been using windy to watch the wind and it’s been pretty accurate so far. It has more locations than I thought it would and it’s my main source of information before I get out under a kite. I use the kite model the most but the kite sizes are set for someone much lighter than I am. There should be a place in either in settings or profile for the user to input body weight for accurate kite sizes.

by Jay Marquez on 2019/06/19 10:09
I check windy every time I’m considering going out on the water. It’s among the best wind forecast sources I’ve been able to find and easy to use. Just like PredictWind, my weather routing go to for navigation on long races, it relies on several forecasting models, but with an easy user interface for quick analysis of what kind of breeze I may encounter on a day sail or weekend trip.

by CR #7 on 2019/05/31 11:44
A friend showed me this app. We like to do rising sign, sun sign, and moon sign. It’s so on point that I’m literally changing my life in very large ways as a result of understanding my daily, weekly, and monthly horoscopes. I can’t guarantee everyone will feel it’s as accurate as I do, but always try to be the very best version that you can and try things a lot to get the most out of this.
No better
by Capt Bill B on 2019/04/19 22:54
Simply one of the finest weather apps available. So many options and individual analysis tools available in one place. While it’s not the only source you should use it is by far an essential. I have lived on a sailboat for nearly a decade and have thanked the accuracy of this app on countless occasions. Thank you developers for providing such a great weather tool.
Windfarm work
by windfarm guy on 2018/03/19 00:14
I rely on this app daily it’s a lifeline to what I do and it’s very accurate and I’m very happy that I have it I work in the wind farms I take apart the wind turbines and put them back together and it’s always pretty windy where I’m at and without it we could endanger me and endanger the lives of work the guys that work for me so I absolutely love it and it’s really accurate
Buyer Beware! Windy gives away your fishing spots
by CaptMB on 2018/08/24 20:47
I bought the pro version of windy because im a professional fisherman and wanted all the features possible at my disposal. I picked a few fishing spots and named them for my personal use to help with decision on what direction to go in the mornings when i left the dock with my paying passengers. The windy app made my personal fishing spots public and now i have both my competition and private boats hammering my spots. Needless to say windy has made my summer much more difficult than it needed to be. Ive tried to contact windy regarding removal of my fishing spots but they have just ignored me....
I almost love this, but
by Not impressive on 2018/04/17 09:31
The first day I used this app it seemed like I hit the jackpot. Forecast wind event was right on time. I live in an RV so need accuracy in reporting. As I type this, Windy reports winds of only 7mph while my other weather app is more accurately reporting the 36mph gusts we are experiencing. So I question the accuracy or ability of the app for real time reporting. We will see if it does better later this week when we are expecting another windy day. But a bit disappointed at this point.
One of the best out there
by Nassik on 2018/10/15 21:36
I have subtracted one star as I find the activity oriented features a bit lacking. If we could specify few parameters of the equipment we use it will be a killer. I myself find relying to windy notifications more and more and I just feel a lot more intelligence can be applied here, to provide a, sort of, personalized forecast. To me the fifth star is in the personalization of the windy experience.
My Pocket Weather Teller
by Cooper II on 2019/04/21 07:54
I’m a jack of all outdoor sports and only a master in a few. This App gives me everything I need to plan my days and improve my chances of having the best time doing what ever it is I choose to do without watching radio, tv forecasters and and you typical phone apps. Don’t leave home and go out side without it.
The best app in the world.
by closguzman on 2018/03/03 02:36
I literally never write app reviews but I just have to for Windy. I use it obsessively and find it to be the most useful, beautiful, and accurate app out there. I’m a cyclist and I won’t clip into my bike without checking this app... heck, I won’t even go outside in the morning without checking it. Literally the best thing in the world.
The best wind forecast app
by J7898758 on 2018/07/25 00:18
The UI on this app is amazing helps you quickly look at the week and see what days are going to be windy. They also have three different forecast models so you can find the best one for your local spot. Buy the pro version has tons of cool stuff and helps them keep making awesome stuff.
Updated - still Incorrect tide tables
by Diana&Sean on 2019/10/14 02:55
Updated - several weeks ago (September) the developer sent an email asking for more details on my review stating the tides are incorrect. I sent a reply with the detailed location and have never heard back. With diurnal tides and an 8-10 ft tidal change twice per day having accurate tide info is critical. Developer, do you have a response? App looks great but the information for tides in our area is 100% inaccurate (times for high/low and height). The data doesn’t match any other source making it unusable.
The best wind and water app ever designed
by Pigsdeath on 2019/01/09 11:55
As an owner of a fleet of commercial fishing boats, I use this app regularly. It’s wave height is fare more accuracy than NOAA’s Weather service and the tide charts and sea temp feature are spot on. I love this app! This is my goto app for weather, wind and waves. The barometric pressure forecast can easily predict rain and when it will start falling from the sky.
Wonderful app
by todd313 on 2018/09/08 02:30
This is my go-to wind forecast app. I paid for the Pro features and loved the customizable colors and layout. The app is under active development with new features being added frequently. The suffered from some server reliability issues as they scaled but these have now resolved.
Windy is my weekend sailing planner
by Too much airport time on 2019/08/01 22:10
More than any other wind prediction app, I use windy to determine if I’m going out and who I’m likely going to bring. Extremely accurate, so I can determine if it’s a day for my wife and cocktail hour friends for a light cruise at 5-10 knots or serious sailing at 15 kts with folks that like more action.
Bad! Don’t waist your time
by twithc on 2019/05/18 15:37
I was loving this app until today. I didn’t go fish because of the 15knot wind you predicted and i woke up to 0 wind! I checked app again and it was still saying 15. Also I get different Readings with this app for 1 spot. It would only let me post if I gave it stars. I DONT RECOMMEND THIS APP! 0 STARS!
Almost perfect
by phuket1 on 2019/06/28 02:06
Have used lots of wind forecast apps for sailing, kiting, this one is one of the best. Only one simple improvement that would really make it great would be if they coukd just add the capability to just create groups of favorite spots. Currently it seems they only allow one large list of favorites. Other wind apps you can create a groups of favorites.
Lack of feature parity between versions
by dromard on 2019/04/03 17:41
Updating my review. The tide charts are there (previously I didn’t see them). I didn’t see them because of the sheer volume of information the Developer has to manage onscreen. I was in a slightly different view and so the tide charts didn’t appear where I found them on iPhone. Raising to 4 stars.
Hurricane Season 2019
by Wbooda52 on 2019/06/02 13:56
I am in Trinidad and have referencing this app for about 4 months. I find it generally more accurate than most of the others that I use. Today was forecast by most of the other apps and the local Met services for heavy thundershowers and localised street flooding. Windy said mild to moderate rain which is what we have so far. Thank you.
An instructors review!
by Rangerteq65 on 2018/08/02 11:11
I teach guys had a flight ultralight aircraft called a powered paraglider this app has help me tremendously, it is an app that I pass on my students because we are very susceptible to the wind and weather with our playing instruments more so than any other aircraft! I would recommend is 100% are use this every time I go out and fly!
Awesome app
by ClifApple on 2018/07/24 00:36
I have tried numerous apps to predict weather for my boating and Windy is so advanced and easy to use, I don't use any other. The interface is the clearest display of every feature you could want to do safe boating. These guys have it right and keep adding features. The best.
Warning! Scammy charging
by Huge4 on 2019/02/15 02:14
Very underhanded in how they scam you into signing up for $40/year subscription. Legit companies don’t need bush league tactics to get subscribers. They make it look like you’re declining the subscription with the way they phrase their opt in/opt out. If it weren’t for the Apple pop up telling me I’d just made a purchase , I would have been fully convinced I’d selected not to subscribe. Who cares how good the app is, these used car salesmen ruined it. Let your app stand on its merit. If it’s good, I’ll subscribe without being tricked.
Great for Boating
by Ureg on 2019/05/25 15:24
We primarily use this app for boating. Great resource for checking actual wind conditions and forecasted conditions. Use the Pro version to compare the various wind models. Helpful to see trends and if models agree with each other or vary. One of several resources we us to plan our excursions.
Not entirely accurate
by klassell on 2018/07/22 14:28
I use this app as a general suggestion of wind speeds to expect but it’s often not very accurate. Also every time I open the app it gives me a notification alert but not for anything specific. Goes away when I open the menu sidebar but inevitably returns each time I open the app anew. Would give anything to have an accurate wind predictor !!!
Tide data is completely unreliable
by capt-dan on 2018/08/20 03:09
This app had a beautiful user interface. Regrettably the data it shows is sometimes incorrect. I could understand wind data being off. However, today I planned to bring my boat to the dock for some maintenance based on the tide readout. I was very surprised to find out that the app was reading high tide when the reality was low tide. Do not trust tides on this app.
Everything You’ve Ever Dreamed Of!
by veryOrange on 2018/07/02 16:55
All the info you can want. Easy to interpret and visually appealing Updated review(July 2018): This app continually gets better. Regular updates show constant improvement from a dedicated developer. Thank you, I use your app everyday for conditions around the Kauai, HI coastline. Mahalo nui loa!
Accurate and very useful
by Hdtaner on 2018/06/26 15:07
Lately, I took a sailing boat all the way down to Turkey from France. During my trip, this application was the most important tool I used for predicting weather and it never let me down. I recomend it to every sailor without thinking twice. Taner Celik - Istanbul, Turkey
Awesome weather app
by Tgr95 on 2019/11/15 13:10
If you’re a hunter, this app is great for wind forecasts and helping you pick when and where to set up. Reliable and full of all kinds of weather geek info but presented in a way that’s easy to understand. Thanks for making a great app.
Super for sailors
by metazbro on 2018/08/01 02:34
I currently am using the free version of Windy. The information on this am is very useful and packed with information. My boating is in the Chesapeake Bay where Windy provides accurate forecast. In spring of 2019 my wife and I will be sailing extensively. I will move up to Pro version of Windy.
Best app out there!
by gytr53 on 2017/12/09 14:23
This is by far a superior app even compared to some you have to pay for! Very interactive and love how you can make your own favorite spots to check the forecast with! Found my kayak fishing weather app! Top notch!.... And THANK YOU for updating for iPhone X!
Awesome info, but accuracy spotty
by BA Smith on 2018/06/27 02:20
I haven’t found a better app yet that is free that displays wind info better. However, I still haven’t found an app yet that is accurate most of the time—including this one. Great info. Great display and organization. Iffy accuracy (but that goes for any wind prediction apps I’ve ever downloaded).
Only weather app you need
by Rlmdrydock on 2017/09/17 13:16
So much information in one glance! Can be overwhelming so give yourself a minute to explore the details and appreciate what's being displayed. Once you tune in this will be the first app you pull up on the water or on land.
Deadly for deer hunting!
by Nastynash24 on 2018/07/11 17:12
I use this every deer season in Kentucky, I have multiple stands/blinds set up and I can get current moments readings before I make a choice on where to set up. Works like a charm! Can’t wait to try out the new fishing forecast! Time to rip some lips!
Don’t waste your money on the pro version
by Abie Babie on 2019/06/12 00:11
I fell for it but the pro version is no different than the free one. I wanted the sailing alerts and local tides, so I bought it, but there are no alerts and no local tides. Nothing different from the free version. Plus the wind and tide info has absolutely nothing to do with what’s going on here. After several attempts to communicate with them, I got no response. They don’t care. They got my money. That’s all they care about.

NOT A FREE APP!
by darleneg20 on 2020/01/04 22:41
I am so sick of these apps that hide under the "free" app but they aren't free. Downloaded and couldn't even open it to see what it was like unless I signed up for a big 7 day trial, then $60.00. (Or $40.00) a year. Either way I wouldn't give $60.00 for someone to show me what they say is the wind. None of these forecaster apps work anymore. They are all part of a bigger agenda. Changing historic records to try and prove their global warming hoax. Done been busted. When instead we are in a solar minimum and an ice age is coming. Keep your app. Just blowing a lot of fake hot air anyway windy!
Not of fan of the App
by Hazmtr on 2019/12/31 02:57
Can’t say I really like the app anymore. I used it during Hurricane responses last year but now it never works. Even though I know I have internet connection, it tells me I don’t have it. Strongly considering deleting it off my devices.

Not as advertised
by KeyWe Kick Starter Backer on 2019/12/28 20:40
Advertised on IG as a ski app. Showed screen shots of tracking snow, terrain status, and lift operations. I couldn't find any of that functionality in the actual app. Also... VERY expensive. $60 for a year.

Windy review
by Man Mom on 2019/11/28 23:53
I started using this app after traveling out west. It was very windy in many spots on our trip. It was fun to see the wind speeds on the app. Also use it now that I m home to check here and in favorite spots.
Jejuisland Packrafting
by climber120880 on 2019/11/26 22:22
Thank you, Windy. I use Windy to figure out which days are safe to Packraft paddle along the shorelines and to the islands surrounding Jejuisland Island in the Yellow Sea or South Korea. Without Windys info, I might find myself in unsafe paddling situations. I really appreciate the outdoor adventure this app helps me to enjoy. Paddle on! Scott

Annoying Notifications
by Aaasdddddaaaa on 2019/11/25 12:27
The developer uses the notifications to advertise new features and updates. These are much more common than actual weather related notifications, so they’re useless. Otherwise, a terrific app.

Never right
Horribly Innacurate
by robdog1235 on 2019/11/19 21:46
I’ve used windfinder, SailFlow, PredictWind, and the other Windy app, and this has to be the most inaccurate of all of them. Numerous times SailFlow, predictwind, windfinder and the other windy app have been in agreement with light wind (5-10 knots), and then this thing says something totally different (25-30 knots). I’m about ready to delete it, you guys need to get your act together and start working on getting your forecasts nailed down better.
I don’t want to pay!
by Jackie and Matt on 2019/11/19 09:11
Your prompts made me say yes to charge me in 7 days. I don’t want to be charged. I couldn’t find where to cancel. How can I cancel?
Deceptive money grab
by 😬😎😁 on 2019/11/16 16:39
Just take a look at the most recent ratings friends. i downloaded this app MONTHS ago and decided not to use it because of the cost for a “premium” experience. instead i went with magic seaweed as my primary environmental app. I was taking a nap today and woke to find that i was charged 15 bucks for an auto renewal service i never asked for. Get outta here with that shady business!!
Map is hidden
by xyzzy45 on 2019/11/16 14:11
In new version i can not see the map anymore. It is hidden by the precipitation overlay so you cannot see where you are.
Subscriptions by deception. Placement of continue without subscribing way out of line of sight
by Allen Lieberman on 2019/11/15 16:51
App itself is pretty much replicated by other apps that display wind grids such as Windy (red colored icon) or Ventusky so you may want to avoid this app to not accidentally get deceived into subscribing into a trial period of which turns into a paid subscription after a short period of time. Presentation of data is nice and app can be customized to purpose you want (water or air sports for starters) This app gets lots of accidental subscription complaints because the continue (or next button) is far away from the center of the screen when presented with subscribe choices. The actual button bypass committing to any subscription is black text on blue background in upper right corner. Very hard to see by design unless you have superior color differentiation vision. It is by design meant to not be seen. To re-iterate, if you don’t want to subscribe to any subscriptions, be sure to look for the option in upper right corner of screen when presented with free trial subscription options or you will be inadvertently subscribing to some very expensive subscriptions!
Awesome weather app
by Tgr95 on 2019/11/15 13:10
If you’re a hunter, this app is great for wind forecasts and helping you pick when and where to set up. Reliable and full of all kinds of weather geek info but presented in a way that’s easy to understand. Thanks for making a great app.
DO NOT GET THIS APP
by gscnk vdst on 2019/11/11 02:11
I SIGNED UP FOR 7 DAY FREE TRIAL. TRIED TO CANCEL BEFORE 7 DAYS AND COULDN'T, THEN AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED ME $59.99. TRICKED ME INTO PAYING AND DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE MONEY. DO NOT GET THIS APP.
Spot wind
by prime_member on 2019/11/08 16:35
I like the fact that I can position A marker over a spot even slightly off shore Oahu and can get wind at that spot.

by MattH-VA on 2019/11/02 15:35
In my second year using this app and it’s my go-to for comprehensive weather information. The ability to choose what’s important to me and to have access to multiple models is great. Now, if the developer would just add the ability to verify/adjust time offset and make it easy to jump back to “now”. I paid for pro features and I use them.
Not so easy to cancel at any time

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP
by VaHami on 2019/10/29 17:12
Very deceptive practice. If you download you’re automatically signed up for a one year subscription. If I want a subscription I’ll sign up for it. I can’t believe Apple lets vendors do this crap. It’ll be a long time before I download anymore apps.

Marine forecast needs clearer tidal information
by mine9920 on 2019/10/14 20:56
NOAA marine navigation charts list water depth at average low tide. An approach like NOAA would eliminate confusion for mariners in the US. Otherwise a great program that I use whenever sailing.
Updated - still Incorrect tide tables
by Diana&Sean on 2019/10/14 02:55
Updated - several weeks ago (September) the developer sent an email asking for more details on my review stating the tides are incorrect. I sent a reply with the detailed location and have never heard back. With diurnal tides and an 8-10 ft tidal change twice per day having accurate tide info is critical. Developer, do you have a response? App looks great but the information for tides in our area is 100% inaccurate (times for high/low and height). The data doesn’t match any other source making it unusable.
Warning press the wrong button and
by DocBull8404 on 2019/10/10 18:42
You’ll get a subscription to this CRAPPY PROGRAM that’ll take an hour digging thru your iPhone or iPad trying to figure out how to cancel. Give me a break 30, 40, $50.00 to pay an idiot that created an app to tell you if it’s windy outside. Pissoff look out a window for free.

Can't get tides right

Do not use this app for an nautical or aviation because it is very inaccurate it never gives you the actual correct windspeed.

I like boating and fishing and your app. Is very helpful. I would like to see the “NAM” weather results for east coast areas instead of “GFS27” since the later is not good for areas near the water or coastline. Thanks

Accuracy isn’t that good
by sailorwannabe on 2019/08/17 14:13
Used the app about 15 times, and so far it’s about 50% accurate. And not just by a few knots, but Windy calls for 10-12k and gusts to 18k, but turns out to be 2-3k. Or Windy calls for 6-8k and gusts up to 10k, but turns out to be steady at 15-18k and gusts up to 20+k.
Big Lake
by Upnorth mark on 2019/08/16 16:13
Our lake is very large so if it’s windy you can’t go out. It will seem calm at home ,but with the app I can check closer to the shore line.

by Too much airport time on 2019/08/01 22:10
More than any other wind prediction app, I use windy to determine if I’m going out and who I’m likely going to bring. Extremely accurate, so I can determine if it’s a day for my wife and cocktail hour friends for a light cruise at 5-10 knots or serious sailing at 15 kts with folks that like more action.
Notificarion ads
by weezimp on 2019/07/29 19:20
Normally I turn on all weather app notifications but I had to turn this one’s off because the only notifications I get from it are ads. It’s one thing to show ads in an app but pushing them as notifications is bad form. Otherwise a decent app.

Suggestion for weather widget
by Wbrexaidfdmsk on 2019/07/24 01:29
Thank you for this app. It has really great presentations. The weather widget on the initial screen has temperature and wind velocity but not wind direction. It would be great to have wind direction as does the forecast detail current weather block, which shows it as point of the compass, for example NW. The arrow in a circle direction indicators require me to translate in my head to the point of the compass, for example, SSW. If only there was something that showed actual current and historical. Or maybe I’m not identifying it. The predictions, even short term, are pretty often wrong in my out of the way corner of the world. Current according to the prediction is pretty often wrong.

Alittle confusion

Not good for camping.
by Lauradotstevens on 2019/07/10 12:42
Downloaded the app hoping it would give us alerts when wind gusts above 35 knots. App does not seem accurate or helpful for keeping an eye on our canopy and tie downs. Uninstalling and canceling my subscription is very hard to figure out. Will need to contact support.
Better forecast
by .Pop.s on 2019/07/05 14:19
Have the Buoy at Crescent City gone adrift months ago this app is a must. You can plan which direction in which to navigate to and have a nice ride back. I understand it’s only a prediction.
Switch n bait
by skipitdamit on 2019/06/30 17:36
Not sure about this app. Just got swindled into a year subs, thinking it was another (much better!) app called....” windy”. How do you do that!? How can 2 apps have exactly the same name??.
Crap
by Gredo61 on 2019/06/29 21:31
Piece of crap if you can’t delete favorite spots. No app support available
Almost perfect
by phuket1 on 2019/06/28 02:06
Have used lots of wind forecast apps for sailing, kiting, this one is one of the best. Only one simple improvement that would really make it great would be if they coukd just add the capability to just create groups of favorite spots. Currently it seems they only allow one large list of favorites. Other wind apps you can create a groups of favorites.
Beware
by Mr. Soze' on 2019/06/23 16:42
Don’t get the free trial because it’s impossible to cancel before they bill you. They make sure it’s impossible to get out much like the mob. Run!
A good weather forecast tool!
by JThurow on 2019/06/20 16:48
I am a recreational gyroplane pilot and use Windy to help determine wind velocity and direction at my home airport during the week. It is a fast and easy way to plan ahead for the days and times that may be best for flying.
First time writing a review
by Rationaldna on 2019/06/19 11:46
I have literally purchased hundreds of apps and have never written a review for any of them. This app makes the exception and it made me break my rule. Where do i begin? This app. It is effective, easy with a gorgeous UI to match. If you think it's expensive, it's worth every penny. Let the development, packaging and presentation of this software be an example to all other app developers on how to do it right. Thank you!

by Jay Marquez on 2019/06/19 10:09
I check windy every time I’m considering going out on the water. It’s among the best wind forecast sources I’ve been able to find and easy to use. Just like PredictWind, my weather routing go to for navigation on long races, it relies on several forecasting models, but with an easy user interface for quick analysis of what kind of breeze I may encounter on a day sail or weekend trip.

I fly Radio Controlled Jets and the wind is a key factor for me in the decision making process to pack up and head to the field. It’s a planned event for sure. With that said, this App has been very predictable at future forecast and hasn’t let me down yet! Good work!

Don’t waste your money on the pro version
by Abie Babie on 2019/06/12 00:11
I fell for it but the pro version is no different than the free one. I wanted the sailing alerts and local tides, so I bought it, but there are no alerts and no local tides. Nothing different from the free version. Plus the wind and tide info has absolutely nothing to do with what’s going on here. After several attempts to communicate with them, I got no response. They don’t care. They got my money. That’s all they care about.

I am in Trinidad and have referencing this app for about 4 months. I find it generally more accurate than most of the others that I use. Today was forecast by most of the other apps and the local Met services for heavy thundershowers and localised street flooding. Windy said mild to moderate rain which is what we have so far. Thank you.
Breaks App Store rule 4.5.4 - push notifications for promotions
by thomandini on 2019/06/01 06:25
I received two push notifications in one day for a promotion windy was doing for its subscription service. This goes against App Store Rule 4.5.4 Push Notifications must not be required for the app to function, and should not be used for advertising, promotions, or direct marketing purposes or to send sensitive personal or confidential information. Abuse of these services may result in revocation of your privileges.”

It’s so on point that I’m literally changing my life in very large ways as a result of understanding my daily, weekly, and monthly horoscopes. I can’t guarantee everyone will feel it’s as accurate as I do, but always try to be the very best version that you can and try things a lot to get the most out of this.

We primarily use this app for boating. Great resource for checking actual wind conditions and forecasted conditions. Use the Pro version to compare the various wind models. Helpful to see trends and if models agree with each other or vary. One of several resources we us to plan our excursions.
A must have in Wyoming.

Most thorough and well designed wind/weather app
by Medic781 on 2018/04/07 02:51
I use this app for sailing. I have downloaded many wind forecast apps, but beyond dedicated weather routing software none come close to the beauty, design, and depth that windy has. First, the interface is simple, easy to navigate, customizable, and puts all the data you need right at your finger tips. Second is the breath of numerical models. In North America you have the trusty GSF, but you also get the benefits of the NAM model and the ICON model. In Europe they have a whole suite of models available as well. The wind data from all these models can be displayed at the same time so you can use the real world conditions to see which model seems to line up best and thus guide your choices. Third, local wind related shops can advertise in the app. I used it to find boat rentals near me when I go traveling. All in all it is a fantastic app. I wish the developer would make a similar platform except that would incorporate other parameters of the various numerical models so I could have this same interface for parameters such as winds aloft or precipitation. It would also be fun to have some of these other parameters on the global view as well.
Great, Versatile App for Water/Wind Sports
by So It's Come To This: on 2018/07/24 22:15
I almost exclusively use Windy for sailing in and around NYC. The different models coupled with the cloud, rain, and temperature forecasts are great. I haven’t found a better interface and I’ve tried nearly a dozen other apps before being told of Windy. I wish there was Apple Watch support like complications or a fully native Watch App. I have other sailing complications installed and being able to glance and current or forecasted wind conditions at once would be great. I also wish there were a way to lock or snap the view to the current date/time without hiding the legend. It would make a small but impactful change when using the app to look several hours/days ahead. Some stations are real-time and give you current sustained and gusts. It would be great if Windy could plot both over time in one view. Finally, I’ve noticed that tide data for the NYC area isn’t always accurate. Recently it said high tide was several hours sooner than my guide books indicated and so it’s not as helpful there as it should. Still, it’s a great app and part of my arsenal of tools to plan, prepare, and track my sailing. And I hope it continues to improve its features as it has added new forecasting models and data points.
Boater beware! Older boater that is.
by GDIndy on 2018/06/03 17:22
If your hoping to use this app for boating activities on the water be advised, the fonts, color contrasts and info lines are difficult enough to read from your recliner at home let alone a bouncing boat. There is no way on my iPhone to expand the font size to read or pinch down. Great info if your at dock planning a voyage but of little help if you are underway. :( Issue is visual. I cannot zoom into very small data bands to read comfortably. Need to have ability to zoom especially when moving.

Great for Wind Direction and Speed
by Oki Jedi on 2018/07/12 13:21
The original site stated this would always be free. Sadly that did not stay true. However, if you are one that truly wants to know about wind and waves, this app is stellar. I really don’t like paying for an app, this one has been well worth it. Good for surfing, sailing, diving, kite flying or whatever activity you would like to know the accurate wind for. Especially helpful during the tropical storms that we get where I live. Get this app, you will not be disappointed!

Brighter fonts, option to hide the offers
by m@tiphone on 2018/06/26 12:05
It is a great app that I use daily. However for an outdoor app, it is most of the times hard to read in sunlight. The hour font color is unreadable in sunlight. It is a grey shaded font in a black background. Good luck reading that. Also using the color black on the wind speed with a blue background is also not a great combination. Much better would be to use white for more contrast. Last remark is that I would like to see an option to hide the 'offers'. It takes screen space and have absolutely no interest in it.
Windy is amazing
by Cali redhead on 2018/08/26 15:13
I love how accurate windy is! This app is very useful for me and helps me to go my job better and keep things at home protected. Yesterday for example I saw that it was going to be very windy and there was a small tree with a awkwardly big trunk and I said to customers please don’t park there that three is swaying back and forth and it’s not even 10ft tall; next thing you know it fell over into a parking space and it would have damaged a vehicle.

Awesome App!!!! Beyond awesome everything we needed to fly RC planes at a glance to tell if it’s a fly day or not. You can even make your own locations and label them. I sent my friends a screen shot of there flying field and were blown away as I had labeled it as Robs flying field and the city’s name they were blowing me up and had to have the App.:-) you’ve done an amazing job with it. I don’t know how it could be Free. Great job hope for your continued success!!!

Now, if the developer would just add the ability to verify/adjust time offset and make it easy to jump back to “now”. I paid for pro features and I use them.
Almost what I need
by MSEP 10-10 on 2018/07/02 17:09
It would get 5 stars if it had all. After the old Storm app was revised to give better radar tools but fewer wind tools, I went looking for what was missing. The Windy tables with all info are perfect. But the map is not helpful. It would be better for me if rather than wind rose for the single station, it could integrate a map with all wind vectors from many sources along with the radar. Then it would have all my met, waves, and tide info in one place.

by WileycoyotesfanIVXX on 2018/07/11 22:10
Using free version for wind checks to fly RC aircraft. Works great for basic overview of the conditions. Needs more frequent and precise weather updates. Weather changes quickly sometimes and the updates need to keep up. Also I find it to be a bit inaccurate on wind speeds. Example; currently it says 5mph winds, when I go outside the trees are bending sideways with strong consistent gusts that are way more than 5mph.
Simply the best
by John K4 on 2018/10/15 15:41
If you’re looking for comprehensive weather data with the ability to create notifications for ideal conditions, this is it. My only ask would be if the forecast could more easily be navigated to the current time. It’s sometimes difficult to side scroll to the current hour if you’ve lost track of the current day.
Not for the feint of heart
by GMak on 2018/09/22 18:46
This is a very confusing app for the casual user without an advanced degree in meteorology or atmospheric sciences. Basic info like “what direction is the wind blowing?” is represented by arrows which are pointing relative to the orientation of the separate true north arrow so it’s hard to tell EXACTLY which way the wind is blowing. If you have a degree in atmospheric science - which I don’t - this may be a great app. I can’t evaluate it on that level. But for the average user, info could be presented a lot more clearly.
Great App: room for improvement
by J@A/\/\M3E$S on 2018/07/31 01:16
I love to kite and I have been using windy to watch the wind and it’s been pretty accurate so far. It has more locations than I thought it would and it’s my main source of information before I get out under a kite. I use the kite model the most but the kite sizes are set for someone much lighter than I am. There should be a place in either in settings or profile for the user to input body weight for accurate kite sizes.

I check windy every time I’m considering going out on the water. It’s among the best wind forecast sources I’ve been able to find and easy to use. Just like PredictWind, my weather routing go to for navigation on long races, it relies on several forecasting models, but with an easy user interface for quick analysis of what kind of breeze I may encounter on a day sail or weekend trip.

A friend showed me this app. We like to do rising sign, sun sign, and moon sign. It’s so on point that I’m literally changing my life in very large ways as a result of understanding my daily, weekly, and monthly horoscopes. I can’t guarantee everyone will feel it’s as accurate as I do, but always try to be the very best version that you can and try things a lot to get the most out of this.
No better
by Capt Bill B on 2019/04/19 22:54
Simply one of the finest weather apps available. So many options and individual analysis tools available in one place. While it’s not the only source you should use it is by far an essential. I have lived on a sailboat for nearly a decade and have thanked the accuracy of this app on countless occasions. Thank you developers for providing such a great weather tool.
Windfarm work
by windfarm guy on 2018/03/19 00:14
I rely on this app daily it’s a lifeline to what I do and it’s very accurate and I’m very happy that I have it I work in the wind farms I take apart the wind turbines and put them back together and it’s always pretty windy where I’m at and without it we could endanger me and endanger the lives of work the guys that work for me so I absolutely love it and it’s really accurate
Buyer Beware! Windy gives away your fishing spots
by CaptMB on 2018/08/24 20:47
I bought the pro version of windy because im a professional fisherman and wanted all the features possible at my disposal. I picked a few fishing spots and named them for my personal use to help with decision on what direction to go in the mornings when i left the dock with my paying passengers. The windy app made my personal fishing spots public and now i have both my competition and private boats hammering my spots. Needless to say windy has made my summer much more difficult than it needed to be. Ive tried to contact windy regarding removal of my fishing spots but they have just ignored me....
I almost love this, but
by Not impressive on 2018/04/17 09:31
The first day I used this app it seemed like I hit the jackpot. Forecast wind event was right on time. I live in an RV so need accuracy in reporting. As I type this, Windy reports winds of only 7mph while my other weather app is more accurately reporting the 36mph gusts we are experiencing. So I question the accuracy or ability of the app for real time reporting. We will see if it does better later this week when we are expecting another windy day. But a bit disappointed at this point.
One of the best out there
by Nassik on 2018/10/15 21:36
I have subtracted one star as I find the activity oriented features a bit lacking. If we could specify few parameters of the equipment we use it will be a killer. I myself find relying to windy notifications more and more and I just feel a lot more intelligence can be applied here, to provide a, sort of, personalized forecast. To me the fifth star is in the personalization of the windy experience.
My Pocket Weather Teller
by Cooper II on 2019/04/21 07:54
I’m a jack of all outdoor sports and only a master in a few. This App gives me everything I need to plan my days and improve my chances of having the best time doing what ever it is I choose to do without watching radio, tv forecasters and and you typical phone apps. Don’t leave home and go out side without it.
The best app in the world.
by closguzman on 2018/03/03 02:36
I literally never write app reviews but I just have to for Windy. I use it obsessively and find it to be the most useful, beautiful, and accurate app out there. I’m a cyclist and I won’t clip into my bike without checking this app... heck, I won’t even go outside in the morning without checking it. Literally the best thing in the world.
The best wind forecast app
by J7898758 on 2018/07/25 00:18
The UI on this app is amazing helps you quickly look at the week and see what days are going to be windy. They also have three different forecast models so you can find the best one for your local spot. Buy the pro version has tons of cool stuff and helps them keep making awesome stuff.
Updated - still Incorrect tide tables
by Diana&Sean on 2019/10/14 02:55
Updated - several weeks ago (September) the developer sent an email asking for more details on my review stating the tides are incorrect. I sent a reply with the detailed location and have never heard back. With diurnal tides and an 8-10 ft tidal change twice per day having accurate tide info is critical. Developer, do you have a response? App looks great but the information for tides in our area is 100% inaccurate (times for high/low and height). The data doesn’t match any other source making it unusable.
The best wind and water app ever designed
by Pigsdeath on 2019/01/09 11:55
As an owner of a fleet of commercial fishing boats, I use this app regularly. It’s wave height is fare more accuracy than NOAA’s Weather service and the tide charts and sea temp feature are spot on. I love this app! This is my goto app for weather, wind and waves. The barometric pressure forecast can easily predict rain and when it will start falling from the sky.
Wonderful app
by todd313 on 2018/09/08 02:30
This is my go-to wind forecast app. I paid for the Pro features and loved the customizable colors and layout. The app is under active development with new features being added frequently. The suffered from some server reliability issues as they scaled but these have now resolved.
Windy is my weekend sailing planner
by Too much airport time on 2019/08/01 22:10
More than any other wind prediction app, I use windy to determine if I’m going out and who I’m likely going to bring. Extremely accurate, so I can determine if it’s a day for my wife and cocktail hour friends for a light cruise at 5-10 knots or serious sailing at 15 kts with folks that like more action.
Bad! Don’t waist your time
by twithc on 2019/05/18 15:37
I was loving this app until today. I didn’t go fish because of the 15knot wind you predicted and i woke up to 0 wind! I checked app again and it was still saying 15. Also I get different Readings with this app for 1 spot. It would only let me post if I gave it stars. I DONT RECOMMEND THIS APP! 0 STARS!
Almost perfect
by phuket1 on 2019/06/28 02:06
Have used lots of wind forecast apps for sailing, kiting, this one is one of the best. Only one simple improvement that would really make it great would be if they coukd just add the capability to just create groups of favorite spots. Currently it seems they only allow one large list of favorites. Other wind apps you can create a groups of favorites.
Lack of feature parity between versions
by dromard on 2019/04/03 17:41
Updating my review. The tide charts are there (previously I didn’t see them). I didn’t see them because of the sheer volume of information the Developer has to manage onscreen. I was in a slightly different view and so the tide charts didn’t appear where I found them on iPhone. Raising to 4 stars.
Hurricane Season 2019
by Wbooda52 on 2019/06/02 13:56
I am in Trinidad and have referencing this app for about 4 months. I find it generally more accurate than most of the others that I use. Today was forecast by most of the other apps and the local Met services for heavy thundershowers and localised street flooding. Windy said mild to moderate rain which is what we have so far. Thank you.
An instructors review!
by Rangerteq65 on 2018/08/02 11:11
I teach guys had a flight ultralight aircraft called a powered paraglider this app has help me tremendously, it is an app that I pass on my students because we are very susceptible to the wind and weather with our playing instruments more so than any other aircraft! I would recommend is 100% are use this every time I go out and fly!
Awesome app
by ClifApple on 2018/07/24 00:36
I have tried numerous apps to predict weather for my boating and Windy is so advanced and easy to use, I don't use any other. The interface is the clearest display of every feature you could want to do safe boating. These guys have it right and keep adding features. The best.
Warning! Scammy charging
by Huge4 on 2019/02/15 02:14
Very underhanded in how they scam you into signing up for $40/year subscription. Legit companies don’t need bush league tactics to get subscribers. They make it look like you’re declining the subscription with the way they phrase their opt in/opt out. If it weren’t for the Apple pop up telling me I’d just made a purchase , I would have been fully convinced I’d selected not to subscribe. Who cares how good the app is, these used car salesmen ruined it. Let your app stand on its merit. If it’s good, I’ll subscribe without being tricked.
Great for Boating
by Ureg on 2019/05/25 15:24
We primarily use this app for boating. Great resource for checking actual wind conditions and forecasted conditions. Use the Pro version to compare the various wind models. Helpful to see trends and if models agree with each other or vary. One of several resources we us to plan our excursions.
Not entirely accurate
by klassell on 2018/07/22 14:28
I use this app as a general suggestion of wind speeds to expect but it’s often not very accurate. Also every time I open the app it gives me a notification alert but not for anything specific. Goes away when I open the menu sidebar but inevitably returns each time I open the app anew. Would give anything to have an accurate wind predictor !!!
Tide data is completely unreliable
by capt-dan on 2018/08/20 03:09
This app had a beautiful user interface. Regrettably the data it shows is sometimes incorrect. I could understand wind data being off. However, today I planned to bring my boat to the dock for some maintenance based on the tide readout. I was very surprised to find out that the app was reading high tide when the reality was low tide. Do not trust tides on this app.
Everything You’ve Ever Dreamed Of!
by veryOrange on 2018/07/02 16:55
All the info you can want. Easy to interpret and visually appealing Updated review(July 2018): This app continually gets better. Regular updates show constant improvement from a dedicated developer. Thank you, I use your app everyday for conditions around the Kauai, HI coastline. Mahalo nui loa!
Accurate and very useful
by Hdtaner on 2018/06/26 15:07
Lately, I took a sailing boat all the way down to Turkey from France. During my trip, this application was the most important tool I used for predicting weather and it never let me down. I recomend it to every sailor without thinking twice. Taner Celik - Istanbul, Turkey
Awesome weather app
by Tgr95 on 2019/11/15 13:10
If you’re a hunter, this app is great for wind forecasts and helping you pick when and where to set up. Reliable and full of all kinds of weather geek info but presented in a way that’s easy to understand. Thanks for making a great app.
Super for sailors
by metazbro on 2018/08/01 02:34
I currently am using the free version of Windy. The information on this am is very useful and packed with information. My boating is in the Chesapeake Bay where Windy provides accurate forecast. In spring of 2019 my wife and I will be sailing extensively. I will move up to Pro version of Windy.
Best app out there!
by gytr53 on 2017/12/09 14:23
This is by far a superior app even compared to some you have to pay for! Very interactive and love how you can make your own favorite spots to check the forecast with! Found my kayak fishing weather app! Top notch!.... And THANK YOU for updating for iPhone X!
Awesome info, but accuracy spotty
by BA Smith on 2018/06/27 02:20
I haven’t found a better app yet that is free that displays wind info better. However, I still haven’t found an app yet that is accurate most of the time—including this one. Great info. Great display and organization. Iffy accuracy (but that goes for any wind prediction apps I’ve ever downloaded).
Only weather app you need
by Rlmdrydock on 2017/09/17 13:16
So much information in one glance! Can be overwhelming so give yourself a minute to explore the details and appreciate what's being displayed. Once you tune in this will be the first app you pull up on the water or on land.
Deadly for deer hunting!
by Nastynash24 on 2018/07/11 17:12
I use this every deer season in Kentucky, I have multiple stands/blinds set up and I can get current moments readings before I make a choice on where to set up. Works like a charm! Can’t wait to try out the new fishing forecast! Time to rip some lips!
Don’t waste your money on the pro version
by Abie Babie on 2019/06/12 00:11
I fell for it but the pro version is no different than the free one. I wanted the sailing alerts and local tides, so I bought it, but there are no alerts and no local tides. Nothing different from the free version. Plus the wind and tide info has absolutely nothing to do with what’s going on here. After several attempts to communicate with them, I got no response. They don’t care. They got my money. That’s all they care about.
