App Reviews

  • Great, Versatile App for Water/Wind Sports

    By So It's Come To This:
    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.
  • Most thorough and well designed wind/weather app

    By Medic781
    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 for Wind Direction and Speed

    By Oki Jedi
    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
    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.

    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!!!
  • Almost what I need

    By MSEP 10-10
    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.
  • Great App: room for improvement

    By J@A/\/\M3E$S
    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.
  • Info to interface 5*'s

    By SKIMMboarderOC
    Top to bottom app that's easy to sort out and collects a wealth of information. I track conditions for surfing, fishing and the wind charts help for hiking conditions. There is more to it, check it out. ** Update- this app is also beginning to support small business related to the different hobbies it relates to. Bang up job! ***Getting better with every update, this app is well supported.
  • I almost love this, but

    By Not impressive
    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.
  • Perfect

    By jsa444
    I live and cruise on my boat. Mostly I have tied up in a slip in a Marina, but lately I have been traveling and exploring. Knowing when to move and where to anchor are crucial to our safety and comfort. Windy does one thing and does it well. It tells me about the wind. Where is it coming from and how strong will it be? Simple, but crucial information. Wouldn’t leave the dock without it.
