It works by analyzing the sound of wind passing the device microphone.
Wind Meter includes compass integration, so you can easily find wind direction too.
The application includes a wind speed converter.
Wind Meter supports multiple units of measure including MPH, Knots, Km/h, m/s and dynamic Beaufort scale.
There is an ability to calibrate your phone model to obtain more accurate results.
This application is not meant to be used in place of scientific instrumentation, but it can come close to real anemometer device.
Wind Meter is ideal for Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Kiteboarding, Snowkiting or Gliding.
The WeatherFlow Wind Meter* will work with any Android device that provides enough power through the audio jack. That includes most newer Android devices, and it is known to work with the following Android devices: Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC Evo 4G, HTC Evo 4G LTE, and Motorola Xoom.
Accurate: measure the wind speed and direction.
Flexible: Reads in meters/second, miles/hour, knots, kilometers/hour, & beaufort scale.
Shareable: Share your readings with friends, instantly.
*Hardware Required. First generation Wind Meter may not be compatible with all EU devices. Second generation Wind Meter coming soon.
No more looking-at-the-trees-and-waves guesswork. Make a precise measurement of the wind no matter where you are and what you are up to.
If you are into sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, kite boarding, land yachting, balloon flying, paragliding, hunting, kite flying, kayaking, drone flying, hiking, golf, biking, etc., etc. - Or if you are just plain curious about the weather around you - then Vaavud is for you!
The app requires the Vaavud wind meter for smartphones, which can be bought on Vaavud.com. 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.
Current features include:
• Current, average, and maximum wind speed
• Graph with current and average wind speed
• Ability to scroll and zoom on the graph
• Ability to choose unit (m/s, knots, mph, km/h, bft)
• Wind range: 2- 25 m/s
• Resolution: 0.1 m/s
• Accuracy: +/- 4% or +/- 0.25 m/s
• Live map of wind measurements
• Measurement history

by analyzing spectrum of sound, created by the air flow around your Android device. It is a wind speed meter in your pocket.
The app is useful for people, doing outdoor activities depending on the wind,
such as paragliding, kite surfing or sailing.
This wind speed meter uses quite sophisticated algorithm to extract wind speed range from zero up to about 15m/s, depending
on the device. This algorithm allows to filter out most of sounds, so that human voice, or
noise of trees on the wind do not affect measurement accuracy.
Before starting to use anemometer please set zero wind level: hold your device in silent no-wind conditions
and press "Set zero" item in menu. The value will be stored in persistent memory, so you don't need to
do it often. However, if you feel that zero level is wrong for some reason - just re-do it.
New method of anemometer calibration is added:
put phone side by side with the reference anemometer instrument to a constant air flow, click on Menu-Calibration Point and enter wind speed, measured
by reference device. Calibration constant will be re-calculated automatically.
When the anemometer is stopped measured data is saved to file (10 points per second). Directory Anemometer is created when you launch application for the first time.
Data files are located in this directory, names start from W and contain date and time of saving.
Saving data can be also forced during measurement by swiping the screen.
The linearity and calibration of wind speed meter are ensured for Samsung Galaxy S, other devices
may show deviations from linear response. Use with caution!
The application is created on the basis of Hermit libraries by MoonBlink (http://code.google.com/p/moonblink/).

speed measurement scales. It may find specific use for all Kitesurfers,
Windsurfers, Sailors and other fans of wind related activities. iOS and
Android version will aslo show you your current wind speed based on your
This easy to use app, will let you estimate wind speed with your android device.
WSM is a must app when practicing wind sports such as Kite Surf, Wind Surf or Sailing.
Features of WSM:
- Anemometer, for wind speed measurements.
- Data Base to store measurements, and then export data.
- Different measurement units, WSM can measure m/s, Kmh, Knots, Mph, Beaufort
- Detects Max and Average wind speed.
- Includes Simple Calibrator.
WSM is simple and easy to use.
Just download WSM, press start button, and start measuring wind.
App inculdes different help guides.
Interface has been specifically designed as user friendly UI, for diferent device resolutions.
How does WSM estimate wind?
WSM uses your deivce mic to detect wind noise.
Wind noise signal is then processed using audio and signal management technics.
Signal is filtered at special wind noise frequencies to avoid other sound interferences.
The filtered signal is then compared with real anemometer measurements at different wind ranges, processed and converted to a human readable wind measure value.

Istruzioni sulla prima impostazione:
Quando Local Wind si attiva,ti viene chiesto di selezionare l'anemometro di riferimento.
Premi allora il tasto "ingranaggio" a destra per accedere alla lista di anemometri.
Seleziona la località' ,conferma con ok sulla pop-up,premi il tasto home a dx per uscire.
Da questo momento LocalWind e' in grado di ricevere i dati dagli anemometri.
Impostazione Wind Alert:
Premi il tasto "manica vento" a dx,ora sugli slider puoi impostare l'intensità' del vento e la direzione di provenienza in gradi per poter innescare la notifica.
Esci dalla pagina con tasto back android.
Premi infine il bottone rosso a sx per attivare l'alert.
Metti pure in background la app,non appena arriverà il vento ti verra' notificata la direzione ,velocità' e raffica.
