Fishing planner

Very user friendly and up to date. Winds and tides easily accessible at my favorite fishing places. Great for planning a quick trip on the fly.

Great app for boaters. Use it every day.

A+

Great sailors App

Use Pro all the time for our weekend sailing races. Very helpful for our shifting inland winds

Best wind data for day sailing...!

As a day sailor, there is no better app for wind conditions. Not too overbearing on the technical data, but enough of it to know when to sail. I highly recommend it for sailors or any other sports people needing to know temperatures and wind conditions.

Wind checking

We use this In Florida and in Vermont and love it!

Love the App!

It’s intuitive, visual, and provides great information. In the San Diego area I’ve so far (last 4 months) found the wind speed and direction predictions to be very good.

Review and suggestion

Hi For me is the best app on wind forecast, even so something is missing: 1- Alarms for high wind 2-Sync with Smart Watch That would be my suggestion Best regards

Current conditions off

It seems to be reporting model output instead of actual. (which is off base also for my location — Lake Mendota Buoy). This app was useful in the past but I might as well use Wundergroound.

Great for Boating

I spend a lot of time boating and fish on Lake Erie. Always consult my Windfinder ap prior and during. Reliable and accurate.

Too much at odds with other forecasts

I tend to use this app but always cross reference against other apps and NOAA directly. Sometimes all of them are inaccurate: this one is easier to use but less accurate typically

Fowey Rocks Forecast inaccurate as of late

Fowey Rocks Forecast has been inaccurate as of late

Baro pressure

Would be allot more useful if they'd actually add the Barometric pressure corrections to be more accurate right now it's pretty much useless. The inHG is nowhere near accurate and therefor worthless

Works for this Lake Sailor!

Wind Finder Pro works great on Lake Travis, Austin Texas. We have a Weather beacon at a local park one mile away. The 5 day forecast is mostly accurate. I seldom use the super forecast feature or the fancy wind maps. (Don’t know how). Suggestion: place online documentation on your system so sailors can learn how to use your fancy features and icons. Overall, this weather app is good and reliable. Thanks! Hector

Great resource

I use this app all the time for boating, it’s my one stop resource for weather. I trust it and it gives me all the info points I need. Keep up the food work!

Fishermans report

Perfect fisherman’s weather report. Easy to operate

Won’t show super forecast

Great App for boaters

This app is a must if you are a boater and ever venture out onto the ocean. I am ready to use it again on my upcoming trip to the Bahamas crossing from Florida!

It’ll keep you away from the lake or get you there

Some times information is seldom accurate. Although it is kinda fun to watch top shelf equipment and top help do so much to very little avail. I have been using this service for years. Hopefully I t can be made useful Jamie Mccullar lake mead Nevada

Nothing works..??? No menu. Tried reloading APP,blank????

Since the APP was changed -nothing works like it should. There are no instructions as to how to use it..tried to set up Favorites but no Menu..seems to be an assumption we know what to push and where to find items??needs a total revamp for ease of use.. Don’t recommend now, used to be best APP and system available...It wasn’t broken,,why ?fix? It... THANK YOU FOR BRINGING BACK ITEMS THAT MADE THIS APP GREAT FOR BOATERS AND CRUISERS.. THE 7 DAY FORECAST WITH ALL THE DATE WE NEED TO MAKE A DECISION TO MOVE OR NOT IS INVALUABLE.. ESPECIALLY LIKE THAT IT IS AVAILABLE FOR NOT JUST WHERE WE ARE, BUT FOR PLACES WE MAYBE GOING..AGAIN, THANK YOU..

My go-to app for outdoor activities

I live about a mile down the beach from a Windfinder location on Puget Sound, and while I don’t kite surf I do plan my day...walks, yard work, etc...using the hour-by-hour feature of Supercast. I am seldom wrong when I tell neighbors we can do something at 2:00 today because it will be dry from then until 4:00. They are amazed at “my” accuracy. I love that! We often trailer-camp along the Pacific Ocean and I use it the same way for when we can take dry walks on the beach. Windfinder Pro is AWESOME!

Good so far, but...

Just got this. Seems super powerful and easy to use! But it seems like all the information is forecast. I’d like to also be able to see real time reports from the various locations. Like what is the wind actually doing right now? Maybe that’s in there and I’m missing it. Hard to tell. :-/

Best app of its kind

All the information you need in one app. If I would recommend something add sunsets sunrises moon rises and moon sets.

Southern Salt Fishing Charters

Love the program. Each time I have a charter and need to look at the wind and sea conditions you guys are spot on !!! Huge help in planning my trips. Continue the amazing work

5.0 worse than previous

Very clumsy interface. Previous version was much cleaner and friendly

الكويت

ممتاز وملاحضته دقيقه وكل شيء ب امر الله سبحانه

Current Report

I don’t like that on the very first screen winds on the varios locations shows as forecast and not actual report. Don’t understand why because last year most locations had an actual “Report”, but since 2018 started most locations show a “forecast” report.

Must have boating app!

The wind forecast on this app is the most accurate I’ve found. Spot on every time. Must have for any offshore boater

Good App

This a is good app which I use almost daily. It would be a great app if it include water temperature.

ممتاز

ممتاز جدا

Not accurate

I have missed SUP paddling sessions ALL WEEK ... this app is so inaccurate all of a sudden ... night b4 says no winds certain hours and next day it is the opposite and all my plans are ruined ... haven't paddled at all ...!! Terrible !

2 stars because font is too small on iPad

under IOS 11 the app is not obeying font size requests nor does it appear adjustable, there is plenty of room for bigger text. Wind speed chart is Illegible, map legend is also too small

Bravo

This app keeps impressing me. Just went through the lastest update and hey, kudos y’all. Semper Fi

Do not buy

Hard to add cities and figuring out this app

Completely inaccurate

This app is never accurate. I consistently check the Annapolis buoy and it is consistently way off the mark by more than five MPH.

Great improvement and now it's Amazng

This is the best wind app on the web now. Amazing amount of data for my pleasure trips on the beautiful but can be very hazardous Great Lakes. If you never been to the Northern Great Lakes you haven't lived yet.

Not very accurate

I'm very disappointed with this app, tried to get my money back but Apple refused. I would not recommend this app, wish I could give it zero stars but it won't let me so I give it one star.

Not accurate and they're not bothered

I bought the pro version for sailing because I live a ways from my boat and want to know whether to go. It is just not accurate and even in the moment, it will show current conditions really different than whats happening right now, never mind forecasting. The tide times are like 5 hours off and I emailed the app and they replied saying I was right and they'd fix it but that was 9 months ago and its still like that.

I'm glad I found it

It works for me. I was looking for a wind specific forecast app and this fits the bill. Plus it gives you some regular weather forecast as well. I'm in the northeast and use it for the Finger lakes and Great Lakes.

Windfinder pro server error

Latest version works great! Thanks for the fix and update communication!

Good app - problem with recent update

This is one of my favorite apps - I use it regularly for my sailing. But, the Mar-15 upgrade has a problem - the timeline is messed up. I see only "PM" hours - no "AM" hours. Please fix this soon!

Time scale is messed up

Time shown per interval does not make sense.. PM where am is normally and all PM

Stops Working After Latest Update

Worked great and was my "go to" wind app while boating but after this latest update it does not work at all. I've deleted it.

Worked great until I upgraded to Pro.

The version before Pro was great: since the upgrade, unable to select favorites and limited applications. Unable to get customer support. Not sure what happened?

Update makes font size too small

Love the app. Update makes text difficult to read.

Sailors be warned

If you're using this for sailing, be warned! The wind speeds are dangerously inaccurate. Regularly predicted to be significantly lower than reality. There is a big difference between a predicted 15k wind - max - and a 25k true with 35k gusts when sailing!

Very useful

Probably my favorite wind app.

Update

Like the app so far (1 day). It doesn't update as often as the website. Been waiting over 3 hrs so far for a more recent update. Paid version should update more often. Important to me as a crane operator where wind is critical.

Crash

Constant crash, can't get a single station. Was great till upgraded OS.

Needs work

A pretty good app until I had to restore it after another effed up app froze.Favorites(only2) wiped and no way to get them back.
