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.

For what you get for free, this a GREAT app. We travel by RV so winds can steal our patio furniture or tear our awnings. Small print, but would rather have all the data, than big print with less data. The alarms work every time. Just need to remember to hit "save". Just looked at their website chart comparing the subscriptions. No idea what most of that stuff is for, but never saw such a feature rich app. I also use a different brand rain alarm app. Maybe add that to yours?

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.
