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 Forecast.io Weather data to provide accurate conditions where you are. Just open the app, let it update, and there you go. Forecast.io 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 email@example.com 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.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is great for determining wind speed and direction. I have a lot of trouble in winter with pipes freezing on one side of my house that is exposed to the wind. I use this app to determine wind chill in the side and it’s been a pipe saver. Also love it for kayaking on open water and for monitoring driving during windy days in my high profile RV. Data is accurate and app is uncomplicated and easy to use. Just a note if you have a magnetic case it may mess up the compass function, but that is a phone issue not an app issue and it doesn’t affect the accuracy of the info.
I live in Southern California just south of the horrible fires raging. This app has given me the best information about the Santa Ana winds in my own area. These winds fueled all the California fires. I have been using it for days to check the immediate wind velocity and to know what to expect in the future - this includes temperature forecasts as well as wind.
Thanks for this vital information when really needed!
A MUST HAVE APP

Just what I wanted and happy, happy, happy to have it. GREAT WIND APP - you need to get it.
