    very useful and correct prediction.
  • Excellent planning tool

    By Wade the best
    Using windy has made sailing trip management much more reliable.
  • Idea

    By BMU junkie
    You should put a sensor on Salesforce Tower in San Francisco. We use your app to get an idea of the wind conditions to fly the window washing unit from on top of the building but comparing the app to the anemometer, the app is not even close.
  • Love the app

    By makunu soo
    Love the app. It will be nice if you guys can get us little bit more features for free. Its too limited.
  • The standard to beat for information visualization.

    Forecast is reasonably accurate. Subtract 10% accuracy for every day out past the current.
  • Great app

    This is a very precise app.
  • Boaters, don’t waste your time

    Windy is not at all as advertised. Hugely disappointing, and a waste of time and money. Pro is expensive and promises several cool features, but actually offers the very same basic wind/temp/precip data available on the free app (and a gazillion other free apps.) Windy promises wave/tide data, but it’s not actually available. I tried to work directly with Customer Support for resolution instead of posting a negative review, but instead of responding to the issue at hand (no line for wave data) their focus was on investigating data for some specific “spot”.) Apparently it is up to the customer to find whatever mysterious “spots” might actually have the data. I haven't found one yet, but unless you happen to be sailing on one of those unidentified spots, Windy has no sea data available anyway. ME: Still no line for wave heights, even in Surf mode. CS: For which spot you try to find this info? ME: Chicago, Michigan City, IN, Waukegan, IL, East Chicago IN. There’s no line for waves on any screen. CS: So, first, we should know what spot? That you give that it is name of place, not a name of spot! Seriously? Pick ANY of the pre-determined Windy “spots” in or near Chicago, Waukegan, Michigan City, etc. NO spots have wave height data, maybe because there is no line on the Surf page or any other page for wave data. For example: What Windy claims is available: (I selected 10 features): Wind direction, speed, and gusts; air temp, and clouds/precipitation. ALSO, swell size and direction, swell height, swell period, water temp, and tidal charts. What the PAID Windy Pro app actually offers for major public “spots” (not even custom!): the same 5 basic features available on the free version (and a gazillion other free apps): Wind direction, speed, and gusts; air temp, and clouds/precipitation. (NO wave/tide data.) What’s even worse is its still not ad-free. Even the expensive ($39.99) Windy Pro uses valuable screen space for “Special Offers” - aka links to advertisers, etc. Absolutely positively not worth it for marine weather data. If you want sea data, try BuoyWeather instead.
  • Boater beware! Older boater that is.

    If your hoping to use this app for boating activities on the water be advised, the fonts, color contrasts and info lines are difficult enough to read from your recliner at home let alone a bouncing boat. There is no way on my iPhone to expand the font size to read or pinch down. Great info if your at dock planning a voyage but of little help if you are underway. :( Issue is visual. I cannot zoom into very small data bands to read comfortably. Need to have ability to zoom especially when moving.
  • Numbers

    By Clay Pit
    Numbers need to be a color that stand out better or larger. Hard to read at a glance.
