Awesome !

Larry on MDI

Works great on my Iphone 1 OS3. Love everything about it, gives tides, forecasts incl. wind and gusts, and whereever the forecasts are from, they're very accurate. You can see the time course of the wind along the day, the trend gives you an idea of whether the wind is picking up or calming down. I sail in Maine, pretty unstable weather/wind in July/ august : I trust this app to know if I leave work early to go raise the sails or not. So far, very reliable. And the advertisements on the free version are relevant/interesting. Thank you to the developpers, you made my summer :) !

Fantastic wind app!


I fly r/c sailplanes and I've tried several wind report apps, but this one really hit it out of the park! There are more sites in the app in my area than any other app and even any website I've been to that doesn't require a paid subscription.

I love how easy it is to find sites, and how you can see the current conditions for all your favorites at a glance on one screen, then when you go to one site it shows the hourly forecasts. Perfect implementation and just what I needed!
