Ever needed to know what the current wind speed and direction is where you are at?
Want to know how windy it is outside without having to run out there and throw some grass in the air?
Now you can with the Wind Compass!

Wind Compass gets your current location and then the current weather conditions based on that location. No fuss, no configuration, just quick weather readouts.

Current options include the ability to switch Wind Speed reading between Miles/hour or Kilometers/hour or Knots or Beaufort Wind Force or Meters Per Second
Select Compass north from True North or Magnetic North
Select Temperature from Fahrenheit or Celsius
Select the Arrow direction of the Wind Indicator from Blowing To or Coming From

Along with your wind info, Wind Compass also displays:
Current Temperature as well as the Estimated Highs and Lows for that day.
Sunrise/Sunset times as well as the "First Light" and "Last light" times for that day (Also known as Nautical Twilight Start and End)
24 Hour Forecast as well as 7 Day Forecast showing Time, Estimated Temperature, Estimated Wind Speed and Direction and % Chance of precipitation.

You can also change the look of the app by selecting from the many different background types including standard colored backgrounds, as well as backgrounds like a map showing your current location, an overlay showing what your rear camera sees, and even a color gradient that auto adjusts from warm to cool based on the temperature of where you are!

Wind Compass uses the Weather data to provide accurate conditions where you are. Just open the app, let it update, and there you go. uses many sources and creates as accurate of a forecast as possible for your location.

As an added bonus, Wind Compass shows you which way is North so if you are inside or turned around, you can always know which way is north, along with the current wind direction.

If you have any issues with Wind Compass please email to quickly get the issue resolved. You can also submit a feature request or bug report right from inside the settings area! I cannot respond to reviews so leaving a 1 star review of "it didn't work" doesn't help anyone.

*NOTE* Compass functionality within the app requires physical compass functionality built in. iPods can still get direction info but the compass will not update real time.

*NOTE* Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

The wind is power


Use this app for kayaking, in the ocean on the central coast. We paddle into a mild head wind and turn back when the head wide increases. It is amazing how easy it is to use the information to increase enjoy ability. Almost like being pushed back to your destination. Cool app thank you.

Thats a cool wind hack for a fun boating day! We love hearing how you guys use the app. Thank you for the review and for using WindCompass!

Great user friendly app


Heard about this from the Mavic Forums. I downloaded about 6 different apps for wind speed and this one is my go-to. The wind speed is live and is overlaid on a compass. It also has the essentials for quick weather info. Temperature, sunrise sunset—it’s awesome.

Great app for RVers


Works great and easy to understand user interface. A necessity when traveling full time in an RV. Best features: ability to add multiple locations and ability to look hours ahead.
