About Wind Compass

Developer Description

Ever needed to know what the current wind speed and direction is where you are at? Want to know how windy it is outside without having to run out there and throw some grass in the air? Now you can with the Wind Compass! Wind Compass gets your current location and then the current weather conditions based on that location. No fuss, no configuration, just quick weather readouts. Current options include the ability to switch Wind Speed reading between Miles/hour or Kilometers/hour or Knots or Beaufort Wind Force or Meters Per Second Select Compass north from True North or Magnetic North Select Temperature from Fahrenheit or Celsius Select the Arrow direction of the Wind Indicator from Blowing To or Coming From Along with your wind info, Wind Compass also displays: Current Temperature as well as the Estimated Highs and Lows for that day. Sunrise/Sunset times as well as the "First Light" and "Last light" times for that day (Also known as Nautical Twilight Start and End) 24 Hour Forecast as well as 7 Day Forecast showing Time, Estimated Temperature, Estimated Wind Speed and Direction and % Chance of precipitation. You can also change the look of the app by selecting from the many different background types including standard colored backgrounds, as well as backgrounds like a map showing your current location, an overlay showing what your rear camera sees, and even a color gradient that auto adjusts from warm to cool based on the temperature of where you are! Wind Compass uses the Forecast.io Weather data to provide accurate conditions where you are. Just open the app, let it update, and there you go. Forecast.io uses many sources and creates as accurate of a forecast as possible for your location. As an added bonus, Wind Compass shows you which way is North so if you are inside or turned around, you can always know which way is north, along with the current wind direction. If you have any issues with Wind Compass please email anapa.apps@gmail.com to quickly get the issue resolved. You can also submit a feature request or bug report right from inside the settings area! I cannot respond to reviews so leaving a 1 star review of "it didn't work" doesn't help anyone. *NOTE* Compass functionality within the app requires physical compass functionality built in. iPods can still get direction info but the compass will not update real time. *NOTE* Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

  • Incredible app!

    I live in Southern California just south of the horrible fires raging. This app has given me the best information about the Santa Ana winds in my own area. These winds fueled all the California fires. I have been using it for days to check the immediate wind velocity and to know what to expect in the future - this includes temperature forecasts as well as wind. Thanks for this vital information when really needed!

    We live in a high wind area. Desert with no trees to help block. This ap has been invaluable in predicting high wind days and nights as we have had problems previously with things being blown all over the place. I am very happy with the predictions and have been able to batten down before damage is done. Thank you

    I love the app it’s great. It’s fun. The reason I gave it only I three-star is because my husband has the same app on his phone and we can be in the same area in the truck together and wind speed and gusts will be different which makes me question if it’s correct it all but I still like the app because I’m sure it’s close and since he drives a truck and hauls campers he has to know what the wind speed and gusts are at all times.

    Use this app for kayaking, in the ocean on the central coast. We paddle into a mild head wind and turn back when the head wide increases. It is amazing how easy it is to use the information to increase enjoy ability. Almost like being pushed back to your destination. Cool app thank you.
  • Top notch weather app featuring wind.

    You won’t need an wind instrument if you have this app. It even has wind forecasts. I hope there will be capability for history also in the future. Much other weather information is available - - for example: % Cloud Cover.

    The app is ok, but it should not want to locate where I am. That’s nonsense and a tracking concern. I should be able to select where I want to know the wind speed not have this app assume. How many users are using the app as a before I go tool to decide. I really don’t care what the wind speed, short of damaging storms, while at home. And this apps constant need to calibrate, why for what purpose?

    Go to the app to design major rides for my cycling group. Try to make courses that have the wind pushing us back home after fighting it on the way out. Love that the app makes it clear the direction and speed as well as a look ahead.
  • Great user friendly app

    Heard about this from the Mavic Forums. I downloaded about 6 different apps for wind speed and this one is my go-to. The wind speed is live and is overlaid on a compass. It also has the essentials for quick weather info. Temperature, sunrise sunset—it’s awesome.
  • Great app for RVers

    Works great and easy to understand user interface. A necessity when traveling full time in an RV. Best features: ability to add multiple locations and ability to look hours ahead.
