Wind Compass App

Ever needed to know what the current wind speed and direction is where you are at? Want to know how windy it is outside without having to run out there and throw some grass in the air? Now you can with the Wind Compass! Wind Compass gets your current location and then the current weather conditions based on that location. No fuss, no configuration, just quick weather readouts. Current options include the ability to switch Wind Speed reading between Miles/hour or Kilometers/hour or Knots or Beaufort Wind Force or Meters Per Second Select Compass north from True North or Magnetic North Select Temperature from Fahrenheit or Celsius Select the Arrow direction of the Wind Indicator from Blowing To or Coming From Along with your wind info, Wind Compass also displays: Current Temperature as well as the Estimated Highs and Lows for that day. Sunrise/Sunset times as well as the "First Light" and "Last light" times for that day (Also known as Nautical Twilight Start and End) 24 Hour Forecast as well as 7 Day Forecast showing Time, Estimated Temperature, Estimated Wind Speed and Direction and % Chance of precipitation. You can also change the look of the app by selecting from the many different background types including standard colored backgrounds, as well as backgrounds like a map showing your current location, an overlay showing what your rear camera sees, and even a color gradient that auto adjusts from warm to cool based on the temperature of where you are! Wind Compass uses the Forecast.io Weather data to provide accurate conditions where you are. Just open the app, let it update, and there you go. Forecast.io uses many sources and creates as accurate of a forecast as possible for your location. As an added bonus, Wind Compass shows you which way is North so if you are inside or turned around, you can always know which way is north, along with the current wind direction. If you have any issues with Wind Compass please email anapa.apps@gmail.com to quickly get the issue resolved. You can also submit a feature request or bug report right from inside the settings area! I cannot respond to reviews so leaving a 1 star review of "it didn't work" doesn't help anyone. *NOTE* Compass functionality within the app requires physical compass functionality built in. iPods can still get direction info but the compass will not update real time. *NOTE* Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

    By Slmimi567
    My husband and i both have this app on our phones. The app shows different directions on each phone
  • Wind speed & direction 5/5

    By Shkaal
    This app quietly gives me wind speed & direction that I can't get accurately from weather apps. Very accurate & fast.
  • Excellent 5/5

    By Isaac Starkey
    I was curious to see how the wind direction effects my MPG while driving. I love the design of this app. Very well done. I think I will buy the ad free version to reward the developers skill and hard work.
  • Great app for fishing 5/5

    By Trinewbie65
    Great app to get accurate wind speeds, temps and other weather stats over an extended period of time. Use this for hunting purposes to pick stand locations to hunt. Highly recommend this app!
  • Super Ap 5/5

    By jujoynt
    Only been using it for a day but it is clearly and accurately displaying weather and wind speeds, that I need to be able to track for new SmartFlower solar panel installation!

    By Floyd Pinkleman
    Fast accurate information without a bunch of fluff. The way it should be. Buy it, it’s worth it.
  • Easy Peasy 5/5

    By Sdeike
    Simple to use and all the right info at your fingertips. It does not try to do to much and get all complicated and cumbersome! Which way is the wind blowing, how fast and what time is daylight! Bam.
  • Location 3/5

  • From a sailor ! 5/5

    By Jdatoday
    I live on a the lake and sail everyday. This app is so great. It can be as simple or as detailed as you need. I love the quick look or detailed forecast
  • Perfect for Kayaking 5/5

    By HammockingHunnie
    I started using wind compass to gauge if it was too windy to get out on the water kayaking. Before having this app I had to google wind speeds in my area. It's so much faster now. Awesome app.
  • The wind is power 5/5

    By paddlepowerRMCJR
    Use this app for kayaking, in the ocean on the central coast. We paddle into a mild head wind and turn back when the head wide increases. It is amazing how easy it is to use the information to increase enjoy ability. Almost like being pushed back to your destination. Cool app thank you.
  • Very helpful 5/5

    By ptowndoc
    As a sailor wind is all. The readings of wind speed seem realistic per sea surface. Wind Direction is typically off a bit but that is very local. Easy to use and clear data output.
  • Cyclist says.... 5/5

    By Mark from the Twin Cities
    I'm a biker and beyond the temperatures, I check the wind directions. This app is awesome and my go-to for forecast. Simple, fast and perfect. Thank you!
  • Nice app 5/5

    By Ееуояе

  • Awesome!! 5/5

    By LizaD3
    Used during Irma totally awesome!! What a life saver to leave the house!
  • Irma 1/5

    By hueydriver
    I'm in the middle of a hurricane in Clearwater and this app is telling me I have 15 mph winds with gusts to 35! Really!!?
  • Wind gust not accurate 1/5

    By odiaz67
    Wind gust was not updating , seemed to show the same amount every time . Closed app and wind gust still would not changed .
  • It is important to be informed about wind speed 5/5

    By Sure aha
    Happy
  • In Hurricane Irma 5/5

    By Bpharperst
    It's handy playing golf when I'm on the golf course. It's also handy now when it's blowing so hard.
  • Simple, intuitive, and accurate! 5/5

    By brown.geist
    Nothing with a steep learning curve. Basic wind speed and direction. Also notes on wind gusts. Everything I need. Perfect for ultralight, sailing, RC, drones!
  • My Thoughts 4/5

    By ronv-43
    I like the app, but if I text it to someone, it doesn't show the correct wind direction (it always points NE), and it doesn't show the wind gusts in the text. For my own viewing and information, I like it very much.
  • Love this app 5/5

    By GreenNeitzen
    Simple to use. It has been helpful in two hurricanes. What the news was saying was different than what we were experiencing locally. This helped us during the hurricanes!
  • Works! 5/5

    By H-Copter
    This little app works as it is supposed. I use it yo check the wind condition for my drone.
  • App ignores Lock Screen - Takes control, Rotates 1/5

    By allowingtoo
    The App, or maybe the Ads, ignores the lock screen and rotates from vertical to horizontal. Just ugh.
  • LOVE This App! 5/5

    By rod.musselman
    Just funded my purchase!
  • WASTE of money 1/5

    By PHOTOlink
    I'm sitting here in heavy gusts of wind and the App is showing 4 mph. Big mistake.
  • Totally inaccurate 1/5

    By Mwsllc
    I have a wind station in front of my house because we live in a windy area. The wind app never shows more than 5.9 mph when I'm looking at the wind station and it shows 20 mph sustained winds. I got it to help in determining when to ride my bike - and it's not helpful at all.
  • Great! 5/5

    By betterthanyouuu
    Amazing app for going to the beach to help you out with where to sit and if you should even go!
  • windcompass 5/5

    By Chicagoaviation
    great app lots of info
  • Location settings are faulty. 1/5

    By M..D..
    You will waste a lot of time with this app, only to conclude that it does not work.
  • SMH 1/5

    By bradleexx
    i use this to smoke in my room and to know which window to blow the smoke out of do it catches the wind and blows away and not in. and lemme tell you THE WIND IS BLOWING SOUTH, NOT EAST. TRUST ME. FIX UR APP.
  • Awesome app! 5/5

    By Bigg dude
    I've had this app around a year, right after I did a 5 star review and I'm doing another review because it deserves it. This time my review is 5 star PLUS. This app has continued to improve which only happens when the developers are just as awesome as the app, truly dedicated developers keep up the great work, trust me it doesn't go unnoticed. You're simply the best, thanks all. 3/31/2017👍
  • Great for outdoor activities! 5/5

    By Jon Belt
    I live in a very Windy City and this app is super simple and accurate.
  • None 1/5

    By FL Cyclist
    Useless. Wind speed routinely off by 35-40% and direction by 10-15%.
  • It's great App 5/5

    By Don Mrgolf
    Love this app, works great..
  • Wind data does not auto update 3/5

    By Interface Wiz
    Shockingly, the wind data does not automatically update. You have to continuously request fresh data. Also, I found the data did not change much in wind gust conditions. Made me suspicious of accuracy.
  • Calibration is always wrong 1/5

    By davedalzellsr
    True north and magnetic north are both inaccurate. I'd look elsewhere if I were you
  • So hand great UI 5/5

    By djmason9
    Such a cool looking app I like it a lot. It would be cool if it had a widget
  • 5 stars so far 5/5

    By Palkat
    This is a really good app. Easy to use. Knowing the wind speed, direction, temp etc. helps when shooting my rifle, I can get much more accurate shots with this information. Especially at 100 yds or more.
  • Best Of It's Kind. 5/5

    By FILTHYSANDMAN
    This is the best app to use for UAV flights. Nothing to get in the way of the data you need most, which is wind direction and wind speed. Keep up the good work. Thank you.
  • Best app for wind speed 4/5

    By SNJRN
    I would like to see wind gusts also included in the info the app gives.
  • Beats the Weather App. Easily. 5/5

    By It's me alright?
    Easy to read predictions by the hour and day of temp precipitation and wind speed/direction. First/Last light and Sunrise/Sunset display. Toggle settings of each gauge from the barometer to windarrow direction (blowing/coming). Great app.
