Started charging for features that were free. I have used this app for years for boating. This season, I am forced to pay 14.99 a month to utilize the same features that were free in the past. £uck this company for selling out!! As you can see, they responded with a blatant lie. I have been using this app for at least the last 10 years with no issues or complaints. Suddenly, they charge? Unless they are giving out 10 year free trial subscriptions, they are lying. Look at other reviews.

Hi again, Anthony. YES- there was a bug / loophole that existed for about 10 years that allowed several users to get access to PRO features for Free. You got free premium service for many years. ...Sorry about that! Other than that bug, this is the Truth: WindAlert PRO Stations and Forecasts have required PRO Membership for the past 20 years.

Was great used for years for my crane to predict wind changes and was pretty accurate but now they want to charge 15$ a month for it when it was free. I used it because it was simple to use and free now that it's upgraded more complicated and cost 15$ I'll just use the weather channels app. This was a poor decision for the developers. I would have paid a yearly cost or a 1 time cost to remove ads but I'm not subscribing to something for the wind that's more expensive than streaming services

50,000+ weather stations & forecasts remain Free on WindAlert! And yes- the weather stations that we build and install ourselves (at great expense): those still require paid membership (except during Membership Free Trials). We appreciate you using our app all these years, Kyle.

Awful interface. Data and text often too small to read. Can't customize to see just key data. No data legends on several pages. Logical flow awkward at best. One customise page has only blank fields. No tutorials on how to use this overcomplicated app. Ads despite this being an expensive app. Forecasts not provided "out of season" for most locations. Crashes every time Onsite Supports Map is selected. No obvious way to set default page on opening app, have to first see unnecessary home page.

Thank you for the constructive feedback, friend. Our small team is hard at work improving WindAlert -- to make it as good as it can be. We have several items on our white board to get though, but we'll get there. :) Thank you for your patience.
