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.

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.

• 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
