Ratings and Reviews
Works Well but Very Basic
I just purchased a Vaavud wind meter for use with my iPhone 5 to check wind speed when kite flying on the beach. It works exceedingly well… simple, high quality, and durable. Be sure and check it out if you're into any activity where knowing the wind speed would be helpful or interesting.
This app works perfectly, but is very basic with only the ability to display current and mean windspeed over a brief period of time. There's no ability to save, share, or export wind speed recording sessions.
It's a good start but could be so much better with a little more time and effort. Personally I wouldn't mind paying for a "pro" version offering the features I already mentioned and more.
Great Wind Meter!
I’ve been using this app and wind meter for the last few months and I have say that I love it! I’m learning how to kiteboard and it’s important to know what the wind speed is so I can pick the right sized kite for the conditions. The app is super easy to use and most of all-is very accurate. The map feature is very useful as I can see the conditions in other places right on my phone, so I can find the best place to kite before I leave home. I also love that it works with my existing iPhone so I don’t have to carry a while separate wind meter with me. All in all, the app and product are great!
New style SLEIPNIR Temporary fix
Ok this is new review since 1st one I gave was 2 stars. Yes now that the app works so far it's the product I figured it could be GREAT. EVEN tho the volume kinks should have been worked out before releasing product. Vaavud did take my advice and put why it wasn't working on their web page. Thank u for that. This way you don't have people like me freeking out cause I think mine is broken. Now it works since new update and it's a fine piece of equipment. And vaavud did get back to me everytime. Thanks customer service. Now I'm Happy and will buy many many more!!
