This used to be better. With updates it's asking me to join premium, and I was already a premium member. Also, they changed the layout so you don't have days of the week at the top with simple bar graphs for windspeed. Also, as far as I can tell, it doesn't have a precipitation option for map mode...kinda useless. Here's my review of the old design We live in CO, and the wind is always a factor, A+++ to help plan bike rides, or anticipate conditions 👍

Hello Jonas, we had a bug that Plus subscribers still got sometimes Plus ads. This bug has been fixed in the newest version. Please perform an update. Additionally, it sounds to me that your Plus subscription is not recognized. Please contact for quick help. Looking forward to hear from you fix and that issue!

The best I've made my living on the water for the last 40 years and I have too say this app is by far the most accurate and will save lives. I tried the upgrade and its even better. I worked for the Cape may/Lewes ferry running captain for 20 years and remember meeting the guys asking about location for weather station. It's another tool in your toolbox for forecasts and accuracy. Thank you.

Its my second year with windfinder. 99% of the time its on target. The app Developers are doing a great job. I'm buying into it again this year. This app also works great for scuba divers, it gives us wave heights, wave intervals, per second. Plus Windforce, and Direction. Has 4 hidden pages that allow you to tweak the program even better. But I have one question, how do I change the program's time, from Standard Time, to military time?
