👎👎👎 Not OK, app used to be better before the update/upgrade. Can't access many stations I used to without paid subscription anymore. Been using the app for over 6 years, stations that used to free are no longer. But based on your response, you're calling me a liar! DEFINITELY NOT OK! Taking my review down to 1 star. Will be looking for a new wind app now, thats for sure!!!! I won't be paying for your app, ever. P.S. in the future, dont LOSE business and CUSTOMERS by insulting them!

We recently fixed a bug which for years was allowing a small # of users to have access to premium stations without having a paid membership. That bug was the only way a Free user could have had access to Pro weather stations, other than during a Free Trial. We hope you'll decide to support us, but if not- Thank you for giving iWindsurf a shot!
