WindGuru has finally arrived on the iPhone!
For all you Salty Dogs and Surf Dudes, probably the best weather site is now available from your iPhone. Wind, wave and weather data can be accessed for almost 3000 spots around the world, from wherever you are in the world.
WindGuru has always been free, and so is this application! But if you do find you use it please consider donating to PerceiveIT to support its continual development - there's loads we want to do...

What's New in Version 2.0.1
Now compatible with iPhone OS 3.0. And fixed a minor bug to encode user names and passwords for Pro Users.
TMI...It's a good thing!!!
This app gives so much detail. What can I say? Even though it gives you forecast for 7 days it's good to check for updates as the weather changes. One suggestion for improvement is to provide coordinates for the stations' location & tag it to a map. The reason is that a county or country can have more than one place with the same name. Coordinates will allow users to see whether the location is really where they want.
I think most of the bad reviews are from people that have no idea how Wind Guru, the website, works.
This app is a companion to the site. If you don't use their site, this app is probably not the best weather app to try and use.
However, if you have custom spots set up online with your account you can load them all into this app and get your specific info with no problems. I have used this app for 2+ years and live full time on a sailboat and wind guru is one of my go-to weather sources. App does exactly what it needs to.
Again, if you want to use this app, go to the Wind Guru site, create an account (free), and try it out there to see if it meets your needs. If so, this app is a great supplement.
Stop giving poor reviews because you haven't spent the time to understand how Wind Guru works.
What I've been waiting for. Sweet!
Works great. I fly RC both powered and slope and this site is great. Glad to finally see an app for it. And there are settings for us USA folks to view in our unit measurements. -user account does not seem to sync spots I created in my account long ago. But I can search them and add them. Also you have to understand how the system works to understand the accuracy. Check their homepage.
