    This app has the potential to be a 5 star weather app, infact I've already subscribed but there's a really glaring and downright annoying issue. When you click on a spot it defaults the weather to midnight of that day. This is very confusing, no easy way to tell AM from PM. This makes planning ahead rather cumbersome. Please fix this annoying issue.

  • Most thorough and well designed wind/weather app Apr 7, 2018

    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, Versatile App for Water/Wind Sports Jul 24, 2018

    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.

  • Weather forecast when and where I need it Jun 24, 2020

    By Remington1137
    In the spring and summer I do a lot of fishing offshore. My boat is a 21’ Striper. I need to know if it’s going to be windy. I ALWAYS check Windy’s forecast when I’m planning a trip. They let me pinpoint the areas I’ll be fishing and give me an accurate prediction of the weather. In the fall I hunt waterfowl. Again I’ll ALWAYS check windy before I hunt. I save my hunting spots as “favorites” If it shows a weather front coming in, with high winds, I’ll start making plans to hunt those days. Here too their forecasts have been highly accurate.

    This app might be good for some but in my opinion, it's too cluttered with the information. Also, the reason I gave this app one star is because I subscribed using the annual payment method and after viewing the app, I tried to cancel the subscription within thirty minutes of my subscription and I was informed that my subscription would be cancelled a year later on the renewal date.

  • ABSOLUTE JOKE OF A CO. W/ FALSE PROMISES Nov 4, 2020

    By Bignorwegian
    The app developers have turned Windy into a greedy, money hungry app. They once used to show wave height and now it is only available if you “pay for pro”. When I originally contacted Windy they told me this was an error by developers and the next update wave height would be included for all. THAT TURNED OUT TO BE A COMPLETE OUTRIGHT LIE. I am not one to say “look at me”...but I commercial fish, I tournament fish...and there are many on Long Island who know who I am. Once upon a time I used to recommend Windy to everyone in my industry. Now...now, out of principle bc you told me lies that it would be included the next update, I will NEVER use your app. I will NEVER recommend your app and I will go as far to tell everyone I know never to trust your lie-filled company. Dont forget who your demographic is. IE salt of the earth fisherman who operate in an oldschool manner and on principle. DONT string us along with lies saying it will be included in the next update. And then follow up w me a week later “oh yea forgot to tell you, youll need to pay for pro to actually get it”. Dont push the old salty dog...

    The most recent update released on December 08 2020 is broken. I am getting messages like: "it seems like there is no internet connection, please try again later". "Seems like this location is outside the coverage area =(please choose another model". When I choose another model, I am getting exact same message. And same message regardless I connected with wifi or mobile 5G. I also tried restart phone, uninstall then reinstall but the excat problem persists, Pro with Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G.

    I like the app itself, its interface is well designed and intuitive. However, I use the app mostly in one area for paddle boarding and kayaking trips on the Hudson River in New York City. My route, dictated by the tidal currents and winds—especially when paddle boarding—are limited to about 15 miles north of midtown Manhattan to the Verrazano Narrows (entrance and exit of the upper harbor). I have found over the course of about four years of use that the app’s wind speed predictions are accurate about 50% of the time. On many occasions I have encountered winds about 10 mph greater than predicted or predictions of gusting speeds that are in actuality steady speeds. These are not of much concern for sailors but for other human-powered watercraft it is much more of a factor. All that said I’m not a meteorologist and do know that wind prediction is an extremely complex science, especially so given the complex topography of the area in question in this review.

    Worst of all the wind apps. Not only are the forecasts way off, but current conditions are all wrong. The Free version from a couple of years ago was better. Also, never received email saying I would be charged after 7 day evaluation and was charged. Probably would have kept the app and fumbled through it while waiting for updates and improvements but it's so horrible I've uninstalled. Also, the app and the website frequently show different data. After 2 months, Still can't like this app.

  1. Considering the vast amount of weather data, the beautiful UI design makes it super easy & enjoyable to read
  2. Numerous helpful widgets make your life much easier when you're surfing, fishing or doing any other activity that requires high focus
  3. Besides finding out the weather report for today & the future, you can also open a detailed weather archive for the 2012-2016 period

    They continue to improve the experience. As a boater, I find their predictions for the most part accurate. Anything new requires a learning curve. The more I use it, the more I get proficient at predicting good Seas!

    UPDATED: Very useful for when I am planning marine fishing trips out to 20 miles. Wind and wave forecasts are essential, and as accurate as the models can be. Graphics and color coding are visually effective. I like the variety of computer models and layers. I waited for a sale and upgraded to PRO. Very happy with owning this AWARD WINNING App. Well done, and congratulations, developers!

  • Suggestion for weather widget Jul 24, 2019

    By Wbrexaidfdmsk
    Thank you for this app. It has really great presentations. The weather widget on the initial screen has temperature and wind velocity but not wind direction. It would be great to have wind direction as does the forecast detail current weather block, which shows it as point of the compass, for example NW. The arrow in a circle direction indicators require me to translate in my head to the point of the compass, for example, SSW. If only there was something that showed actual current and historical. Or maybe I’m not identifying it. The predictions, even short term, are pretty often wrong in my out of the way corner of the world. Current according to the prediction is pretty often wrong.

    Pretty good app, but today it is totally wrong on wind direction. Not sure why. Wind is north to south as my flag shows me that. Map shows south to north. Seems to working correctly now. Not sure what was happening that day. I plan on putting up a weather station of my own soon.

  • Almost what I need Jul 2, 2018

    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.

  • Not for the feint of heart Sep 22, 2018

    By GMak
    This is a very confusing app for the casual user without an advanced degree in meteorology or atmospheric sciences. Basic info like “what direction is the wind blowing?” is represented by arrows which are pointing relative to the orientation of the separate true north arrow so it’s hard to tell EXACTLY which way the wind is blowing. If you have a degree in atmospheric science - which I don’t - this may be a great app. I can’t evaluate it on that level. But for the average user, info could be presented a lot more clearly.

  • Subscriptions by deception. Placement of continue without subscribing way out of line of sight Nov 15, 2019

    By Allen Lieberman
    App itself is pretty much replicated by other apps that display wind grids such as Windy (red colored icon) or Ventusky so you may want to avoid this app to not accidentally get deceived into subscribing into a trial period of which turns into a paid subscription after a short period of time. Presentation of data is nice and app can be customized to purpose you want (water or air sports for starters) This app gets lots of accidental subscription complaints because the continue (or next button) is far away from the center of the screen when presented with subscribe choices. The actual button bypass committing to any subscription is black text on blue background in upper right corner. Very hard to see by design unless you have superior color differentiation vision. It is by design meant to not be seen. To re-iterate, if you don’t want to subscribe to any subscriptions, be sure to look for the option in upper right corner of screen when presented with free trial subscription options or you will be inadvertently subscribing to some very expensive subscriptions!

  • Brighter fonts, option to hide the offers Jun 26, 2018

    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.

    I didn't know that i can fish in soil or rock, because i find fishing spot on my island, one near my house. I can sand screenshot if you don't believe me. Lots of fishing spot isn't in sea at all it's on land. Delete that option from app because you will lose a lot of users as me.

  • I almost love this, but Apr 17, 2018

    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.

  • What happened with the new update? Oct 5, 2020

    By kwaide
    We used to love this App for the fact you could see swell heights and weather forecasts for at least a week out, and was always pretty accurate. But now after updating the swell heights have gone away and I only can see a forecast for 2 day. Very disappointed if this is a way of trying to collect money by now cutting out the free version of this app. I have recommended this app to numerous amounts of people and would be a total shame if they have taken away the features we all used in order to make profit.

  • A nice UI, but the data is garbage. Oct 15, 2018

    By Bokra11
    A nice well designed app, but unfortunately not very useful since at least for San Francisco Bay it shows values that off bu a factor 10 from reality. It is always off for swell (showing waves up to 15ft tall in a 5-mile enclosed bay with 1.5 ft actual) and it is usually way under for the wind - typically by a factor of 2. Bottom line - it is good for entertainment value, but mostly useless as a wind forecast tool...

    I trusted this app at first because it was semi accurate. As time has passed the inaccurate information has increased and at the moment I can’t rely on this app even 1 day before a fishing trip, since the trip planned for tomorrow (only planned it today btw) said it would be 1 ft waves changed to over 4ft waves just isn’t helpful. I hope this improves D

  • Buyer Beware! Windy gives away your fishing spots Aug 24, 2018

    By CaptMB
    I bought the pro version of windy because im a professional fisherman and wanted all the features possible at my disposal. I picked a few fishing spots and named them for my personal use to help with decision on what direction to go in the mornings when i left the dock with my paying passengers. The windy app made my personal fishing spots public and now i have both my competition and private boats hammering my spots. Needless to say windy has made my summer much more difficult than it needed to be. Ive tried to contact windy regarding removal of my fishing spots but they have just ignored me....
