Absolutely necessary app

arthurathana

If you're an amateur fisherman you can't live without this app. I make all my decisions around this app. It brings all different information together rather than trolling through different websites. Anyone interested in the weather needs to have one. I'd certainly recommend it.

Developer Response

Thanks for recommending Vic Wind! The main reason I built the app was to make it easy for people to obtain information from the one place quickly. Cheers.

Everything in one place

Jcscotland

Love this app for simplicity of use, accessibility to all that you need and availability of real time data. Recommended this to Vic Coast Guard who were also impressed!

Has everything I need weather wise

Tiny tempah

Wind forecasts straight from BOM, wind reports and radar images are really handy as well! All info is usually pretty accurate too
