When you open the app and the main map is visible when you tap on it and go to your area of concern you use to see the wind arrow directions. This doesn't happen any more. This was a very quick way of finding out direction. The list of favorite places can't be arranged with your favorite spot on top. You have to scroll through to find it. Not so good anymore. But still very good app.

Works really good. Seems very accurate when sitting out in a blind or out on the water. Only knocks are with transparency views. Can be difficult to differentiate the transparency for low wind speeds. Greens and blues over land or water can be indiscernible sometimes. The animation can be tough to read in satellite view with some of the layering. A little tweaking in the view settings and all is good. Great app for hunting and boating.

UPDATED: Very useful for when I am planning marine fishing trips out to 20 miles. Wind and wave forecasts are essential, and as accurate as the models can be. Graphics and color coding are visually effective. I like the variety of computer models and layers. I waited for a sale and upgraded to PRO. Very happy with owning this AWARD WINNING App. Well done, and congratulations, developers!

Thank you for such a great feedback! We have sales from time to time. We seek to keep the free version fully function - we'd like to be a free app with extra features. We are open to any ideas about the app. Please, don't hesitate to contact us at windy@windyapp.co at any time!

What's new

Improved recommended kite size & more
A more accurate kite size recommendation is now available in the KITE profile. We've tweaked the formula so that it accounts for air density better. Rider's weight also makes a difference, so make sure to set it up correctly in the Settings -> Units.
You may find other specialized parameters in the spot forecast: recommended windsurf size, solunar and UV index.
If you feel there's something missing for your activity - let us know at windy@windyapp.co!
