App Reviews

  • Dependable and ACCURATE

    By Your boi EAW
    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!
  • Rare “futurecast” feature

    By Weeds1
    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.
  • Pretty accurate, UI needs work

    This is one of the best weather apps with regards to the accuracy of its forecasts. However, to me, the app design is a bit frustrating: why can't it remember my previous view and instead always defaults to something I am not interested in. Also, it seems absurd that the favorite locations can only be displayed on the map at the expense of some weather data. Finally, I do not understand why, when opening the app, the map centers on a location that is neither my current position (location is on) or one of my saved locations... Those minor gripes seem pretty easy to address, and when they are this app will be perfect.
  • Storm Recovery

    4
    By Third Wind Jim
    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.
  • Beyond what I could have imagined

    By Pahoo_Katawah
    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.
  • Overwhelming Options, Underwhelming Performance

    2
    By Meisty
    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.
  • Excellent app

    By Coney ledge
    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).
  • Weather! Hallelujah!

    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.
  • Awesome! However...

    By Qwood58
    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.
  • Fantastic weather app

    By Abrehm
    This app has a ton of available data so if you are just looking for an app to tell you the temperature and if it’s going to rain this is probably not for you. If you need a bit more information this app is great. It offers several forecasting models so you can see how they compare and the map is beautiful. I have found the forecasts to be very reliable and the amount of information unmatched in other apps. It’s so good I’d gladly pay for it.
