Ratings and Reviews
The best weather app out there
I was a huge fan of Storm from WeatherUnderground and hadn't checked out the other options recently, but when The Weather Channel killed Storm and replaced it with a mediocre weather channel version I had a look at the other options and was very happy to find Windy. It's so much much better than the others, let me count (a few of) the ways: You can pick your forecast model! And then compare the different models to see where they differ! That to me is a game changer. The timeline along the bottom is so great to see how pressure and fronts will move - I feel like I've learned a lot just by using the app. The many layer options are great - set it for what you want to see and don't be distracted by what you don't. And of course the wind animation options make for a visually appealing interface. Seeing how the different altitude winds are moving and changing is so useful and interesting. I'd gladly pay money for this app, there are just so many great things to say about it. And if all you want is a sun, a cloud, or an umbrella for where you live that's there for you too. I was bummed when Storm was killed off but am so happy to have found this great app.
Dependable and ACCURATE
Amazing, Dependable, ect. any good word you could use double it! This app it VERY dependable! I live in the United States and not in Europe. I thought that it could be a stretch with getting a European Weather app when I live in the US but when they pretty much nailed the paths of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate I new it was time to switch. I had a problem I had no clue which on to get. Some friends from Indian who visited recommended this. It took about 5 minuets to figure out but once you do it is SO easy to use and so accurate I have used this in past winter storms of what to expect and I was more prepared than the rest of my family who was depending on the National Weather Service!
Thank you so so much Windy Crew!
I have found Windy to be one of the best weather apps available. I particularly like the ability to view four different weather models, and to look forward several days with the predictions. A few suggestions:
It would be nice if you could see both the selected menu item AND the particular legend. Currently, after you select a specific item, I.e. rain accumulation, you have to X out of the menu before the ledge down come up at the bottom. It would be nice if you could see both at the same time and just circulate between menu items.
The font is pretty small at the bottom...great data, but have a look at the formatting....in some cases things are impossible to read since they are overlapping, such as cloud altitudes.
Rain vs. Snow accumulation.......it’s confusing. Looks to be the same physical accumulation data, but we know inches of snow isn’t inches of water....
Would be nice to be able to zoom the map like all other apps........instead of just having several different fixed scales.
This is a wonderful app, and I encourage you to keep making it better. Thanks.
