The app requires the Vaavud wind meter for smartphones, which can be bought on The Vaavud wind meter is a patent pending, electronicless cup anemometer, which utilizes the sensors in your phone, and an advanced set of algorithms to measure the exact wind speed.

is this project dead? the app hardly does anything. it hasn't for quite some time and this is across more than one device. all it shows up as a black screen with a little plus button still let you take a reading. can't even set the unit a measurement permanently, so you have to tap the screen and then go through every unit if you don't want the default one really kind of sad that I spent fifty bucks on this Hardware there's no app to back it up with any sort of functionality. I I had high hopes

It cost 50 euros. And it doesnt do anything. I think its the worst app i have ever tried. A blank screen with a plus. And if you press the plus button. Nothing happens. This project is dead as mentioned before. Thanks for nothing....

I was surprised by how quickly and easily it worked on my Samsung S10. I found the meter itself on clearance for less than $10 at West Marine. There's a post on Sailflow that they are hosting the app, but since Vaanud is technically out of business, it would be nice if the meter worked with other apps.
