So.... I've had this app now for a couple of weeks before I wanted to express my opinion about it. Honestly, it's fantastic on all levels and I find myself referring to it daily. I live in the Vegas/Henderson area and we happen to get our share of high winds here and this app nails it from what I've observed. I'm not particular fond of the way the future wind forecast graph is displayed on the widget but other than that, it's a awesome app and well worth the purchase for the pro version......

I have used this app for a couple of years, and in general the app itself is ok, but lately the forecast accuracy has been poor. I spent the last couple of weeks sailing around the SW of the UK. A forecast northerly turned out to be a day long southerly, not such a problem, but then three days on the run the app under estimated wind speeds by about 15kn, culminating in sailing an offshore leg in 40kn rather than the forecast 25kn, the difference being dangerous. Lost faith.

Hello Peter, Sorry to hear our forecast didn’t work out. Comparing Forecast and Superforecast is always helpful. When both models predict a similar weather, the probability of occurrence is highest. Use our forecast map to get an impression of the weather in your area. Check station reports and webcams to get a good picture of the conditions.

I've been using WFpro for a few years as a Scottish sailor. It has a lot of info on the main screen and I can drill down easily for more detail. The only thing it lacks is surface pressure maps and / or the ability to zoom out to see what is happening with depressions in the north Atlantic. Met office app is heavier, but it can at least do this. WF is my preferred weather app of the three I have installed.
