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.

Wind Compass app reviews

  • 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!

  • 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
  • Does what it says 5/5

    By Noyguy
    I'm a commercial crab fisherman on the Chesapeake bay and I been using this app every day. The hour by hour forecast is nice and is often more accurate then the local news forecast. And for $.99 you can't go wrong.
  • 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.
  • Perfect 5/5

    By M209t
    Ideal app if you just need the basics. Simple, easy and great design. Wish more apps were like this.
  • Best wind app out there 5/5

    By Tebulon
    It was just what I was looking for very easy to use thank you
  • The best and most accurate 5/5

    By JonShirley
    I have five apps that display wind speed and this is always the most accurate and up to date. Best wind app out there!
  • Inaccurate 1/5

    By Papajooce
    10-15 m.p.h. Off consistently.
  • Great App! 5/5

    By GotAngus?
    Does what it says and updates info fast enough to be helpful!
  • Jack 5/5

    By The eagle.
    Excellent , instructive and practical Don't live Home with out it.
  • Great Wind App – Super team!! 5/5

    By Steve Mac since 1989
    I started flying drones last November and especially for the very lightweight drones weighing just a few ounces the wind speed is critical. Your app makes it a delight to check all conditions. Again today I see great improvements and I can feel the spirit of your team eager to make even more… I have downloaded and deleted many other so-called wind speed apps. Yours is the best by far and I will be looking to upgrade to the full no ads version. If wind and weather is part of your life you want to have this app! I'm going to check to see if you have other apps because with a team like yours I'm guessing they're going to be great! Best of continued success.
  • Why the Change 2/5

    By panhandle Skip
    I loved your application before the recent change. All the information was on one page which was great. Now you have to click multiple times for the same info. Poor design. I'm very disappointed.
  • Great First Experience 5/5

    By Thomas K
    I'm impressed with this on my first experience with the app. Love the additional features and ease of navigation. If people are leaving negative reviews then they are simply too dependent on what app developers can come up with to solve problems they can't resolve by thinking for them selves. If you want a perfect wind reading then go to a sporting goods store and buy a wind meter. If you are needing something in a pinch like I did, then this app is perfect!
  • What Planet is This App On? 1/5

    By Shadow Murphy
    What a piece of crap! The app says its 6mph when it's really 25mph outside. I have no idea where they get their information, but it's not on this planet.
  • Add multiple locations 4/5

    By mldcfan
    Pretty good app! Would be great if you could enter and save addresses, cities, or zip codes and get information on those areas as well.
  • 50-50 Chance of Accuracy, but... 4/5

    By Radar O'Reiley
    About 50% of the time when using Wind Compass it is wrong in wind speed but often has the direction the wind is coming from correct. I often have to resort to looking up a nearby airport and checking what the aviation weather is showing in my vicinity. As a long-time pilot and son of a WW2 Instructor Pilot, knowing wind speeds and directions was as normal for us as most folks just wanting to know what day it is. I suspect Wind Compass gets their data from the FAA weather reporting stations that advise pilots what the winds are doing, and thus there is a time-lag in Wind Compass getting the data available to people using this app. The other features this app has allowing you to set personal preferences make the app very useful to the "Average Joe/Jill"...
  • Best app around 5/5

    By Mistyotis
    I use this all the time when traveling or planning to outside for any length of time. I love know the wind and does that and more. I would thing though. Have the map facing the way you are driving or walking. Very confusing at times having everything backwards
  • Great 5/5

    By Hiilikepie123456785468
    Amazing App, especially if you are sailing!
  • Twice wrong 1/5

    By Nataniel Radziwiłł
    First the app has been wrong (both when device hold straight and face-down) when I hold a cigarette then the second time in different location with a flag present. Ergo, renders one-star review. Please, keep us updated.
  • Needs Gust indicator 3/5

    By Xybc2
    Fair App Could be a 5 star app if it had a wind gust speed indicator. Without gust indicator only fair and not worth the ad free cost
