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.

App Reviews

  • Useful app

    This app is great for determining wind speed and direction. I have a lot of trouble in winter with pipes freezing on one side of my house that is exposed to the wind. I use this app to determine wind chill in the side and it’s been a pipe saver. Also love it for kayaking on open water and for monitoring driving during windy days in my high profile RV. Data is accurate and app is uncomplicated and easy to use. Just a note if you have a magnetic case it may mess up the compass function, but that is a phone issue not an app issue and it doesn’t affect the accuracy of the info.
  • A MUST HAVE APP

    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.

    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?
  • 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.

  • My dog appreciates

    My brave - fears nothing but wind dog- freaks out when any sustained wind occurs from the northwest (only NW). I can anticipate and apply her Thundershirt in time so she doesn’t dive behind the toilet shaking. She was a stray out in the wind - thunder and lightning however have NO affect on her. Crazy shiba!

    As a wild land fire fighter the wind compass is nice to have to check wind direction and speeds at any given location ( as long as your phone has adequate reception ) and dew points and pressure and wind gusts ,,, I like it very useful also good when hunting nice app .
