Great app!! Love the alerts but wish you could control how often you get them. (Once you see the alert and remove it, if the condition persists, then you could control when the alert pops up again, once an hour, once every 2 hrs, etc.) I love the ability to see multiple weather conditions, not just the wind! Seems to be pretty accurate. Wish it updated more often, 6 hrs is a long time.

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?
