Ratings and Reviews
Great Application for sailors !!
After a three years of constant use, I'm quite satisfied with the features of this app. However, I'd like to see the following capabilities implemented:
1. User should have capabilitity to (a) interchange the order of the graphs, for example, wind speed followed by atmospheric pressure, or
2. User should have capabilitity to superimpose graphs. For example, wind speed over atm pressure.
3. Provide the option to show a graph showing the average of the two graphs. ie, the midpoint between the two graphs.
4. Provide user graph entries on the chart to plot actual observations to compare the merits of the various app's graphs. User can save screen shots
Bait and Switch
I have used this apps for a couple of years. This year I upgraded to basic as we are cruising up the inside passage to Alaska. The basic package says it includes 1km resolution forecast maps; 9 saved forecast locations; wave, rain, cloud, isobar maps; wind observations; and forecast alerts. I don’t get most of that. After emailing the help desk they told me I only get one 1km resolution map, as in 1 and never another and I don’t get wave maps. Those are the only reasons I upgraded. There are several other apps that will give you the information they are giving for free. Skip if you want more detail or want to deal with an honest company. If I could post a picture of what they tell is included I would.
Ultimately pretty darn good
We fought for about 18 months with the Predict Wind Offshore App. First with windows 8, then windows 10. Eventually, thanks to determination on our end, and good customer service, we got it going correctly.
The program ( Predict Wind ) is great, we love the departure planning feature. The learning curve is a little painful, just lots of non intuitive steps you have to fumble thru till you get the hang of it, but well worth it.
Now, it's one of our essential planning tools.
