Description

The app combines highly accurate weather forecast for your location with a map showing development of weather in a broader area in a very interesting way. This allows you to see where precipitation is going to come from or where the wind is blowing from. The uniqueness of the app comes from the amount of data displayed. Forecast of weather, precipitation, wind, cloud cover, atmospheric pressure, snow cover and other meteorological data for different altitudes is available for the whole world. WIND ANIMATION The Ventusky application solves weather displaying in an interesting way. Wind is displayed using streamlines which clearly portray the continuous development of weather. Airflow on Earth is always in motion and the streamlines depict this motion in an amazing way. This makes the interconnection of all atmospheric phenomena obvious. WEATHER FORECAST Weather forecast for the first three days is available in the app in one-hour steps. For other days, it’s available in three-hour steps. Users can also look up sunrise and sunrise times in a given place. WEATHER MODELS Thanks to the Ventusky application, visitors get data directly from the numerical models that, just a few years ago, were used solely by meteorologists. The app collects data from the most accurate numerical models. Besides the well-known data from the American GFS and HRRR models, it also displays data from the Canadian GEM model and the German COSMO and particular ICON model, which is unique thanks to its high resolution for the whole world. Two models, EURAD and USRAD, are based on current radar and satellite readings. These models are able to show precisely current precipitation in US and Europe.

    Really like the potential. Would love to have smaller increments at altitude from 20 feet to 100 ft , not meters. Thanks

    This apt offers some unique display options like placing number values in grids. But for me unless you have the best weather models however you display the data it’s worthless. I am very disappointed when a developer charges for something and then cannot even offer what a free apt like Windy offers.

    I am a weather fanatic, so I purchased this app, only to be very disappointed with “how it works” and navigating the page! Seems you have to be a meteorologist or have a PHD to understand the terminology they use! Wish they would explain more about the different features.
  • Singular superiority, by far.

    I came across a post on Reddit with a thumbnail link to Ventusky.com Web Application. I was wowed immediately upon clicking the link. After exploring for mere minutes I rid myself of the junk Dark Sky had become and immediately adopted Ventusky iOS app. I’m not one to purchase an app period but after seeing the web application I knew it was going to be worth it, and it was. At the time I purchased the app it wasn’t even ranked in the AppStore and I was shocked. Turned out I was an early adopter. Now, I’m not surprised at all that it’s made it’s way into the top ten weather apps and very quickly at that. Thank you InMeteo. I cannot wait to see what the future holds......you had me at ‘Temperature, Altitude: 5cm above ground.’ Cheers
  • Love it

    Came from “myradar” after that went downhill. Found the website, which is awesome, that led me here. Had an issue with the app not showing the forecast, coincidentally this is while a co-worker was trying tp get some customer service from cricket wireless. After a few hours of my coworker trying to resolve a fairly simple issue I sent am email to Ventusky. They responded with an hour with the solution to my problem. My coworker never got her issue fixed. The funny part is how a weather company in Chzecslacavia was able to resolve my issue quickly, while cricket wireless couldn't figure put how to get a subscriber to navigate their website. Hilarious.

    Awesome app, I use it all the time, for photography to determine heat and wind and for boating! Great site
  • Not bad - needs a few small tweaks

    Overall it’s a good app - not great yet. But solid. Things I’d like to see: the mobile version needs to show the borders of the states. Needs highways, major cities, etc. it would be nice to toggle them on and off and overly them. As of now - it’s nice but difficult to tell what you are looking at. The data seems good and the visualizations are good as well. I’m giving it 4 stars until the maps are updated.

    Finally a global view on weather without click bait, ads and frankly bad interpretations. The app works even better now they have increased the size of the numbers
