The Wind Chill Index Factor displays automatic weather calculation based on iPhone/iPad localization features with available internet access. Just press the Fetch button.
This is a tool for measuring the perceived when outside by measuring the impact of wind on the temperature of the air. The wind chill factor can not lower a temperature below the current air temperature, but instead it speeds up the decrease in temperature proportional the speed of the wind
Both the Old model for calculating the Wind Chill Factor, pre-2001 formula, and the New Wind Chill Index devised by the National Weather Service in 2001 are used. The values are calculated to the second decimal place for extra accuracy.
Inputs for Air Temperature can be given as Fahrenheit or Celsius. Acceptable inputs for wind velocity are Knots, Miles per Hour, and Kilometers per Hour.

The 7 day forecast is great..
DO NOT BUY THIS APP
DO NOT BUY THIS APP! I'm using iPhone 5s. inputs of wind speed does nothing to wind chill temp. paid for this app and it doesn't work at all as advertised. tried to email no address available. restarted my phone did nothing to make app work!! waste of money!
Does Not Fetch Local Wind Data
Got this for iPhone 5. Uses location services when loading but nothing happens when you hit Fetch. Have to enter data manually. Not the end of the world but not what they say it does either. Brass handle reviewed more expensive version of this app as well and mentions how Fetch function is helpful. Like that you can enter your exact data but the app says it will get this for you. My other weather apps use location very accurately. So, feeling a bit mislead here.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
