Rite on all the time
Accuracy is Iffy 2/5
Over the last few months, it seems that this app has lost a lot of its accuracy. Not a big fan of how it bunches up the times (5-9,10-3 etc) as I prefer hour by hour. I also don’t like how it says 3-19kts or 5-22kts. That doesn’t help me in the least, as the difference between 5 and 22kts is the difference of whether I go out or not. Used to like this app, but I think I’ll stick with WindFinder and SailFlow/Windy.
Use Windy app...much cheaper 1/5
What a great app but they inflated so much. 50 bucks a month is a cell phone bill. What are they thinking. I used to pay 200 buck a year for professional. What a rip off. I deleted the app and use Windy instead. Much better
They contacted me via email saying "Pricing has not increased. We do so much more than Windy, but hard to beat free if you do not use our unique features.” ...Well I save my receipts and back in 2018 and 2017, one year standard package was $249 on sale in February for $124. Now the standard package is $48.99 per month. Looks to me like they doubled the price to me. Those “unique features” are what I need but not paying $600 a year for them. This hasn’t been my first run in with their tech support. They screwed me in the past with trying to upgrade my package to pro for one month to get ocean currents and I had to get a whole new package a full retail without discount. Customer service was not helpful then and it isn’t now. What a shame, Predict wind used to be the best, not anymore. Windy app is getting better and better every day with constant updates.
Great boating app 5/5
A great addition would be a blue dot on the map marking my iPad GPS position.
fantastic!!! easy clear and accurate
Ottimo anche nella versione free 5/5
Files Grib free, possibilità di interagire con i diversi modelli meteo e con le relative visualizzazioni. La migliore App per il Wind forecast, la versione pro colma quello che manca. Caldamente raccomandato a chi va per mare seriamente!!
Great app 5/5
Moved my sailboat 80 miles south looking for the right wind to support the move. Spent just a couple of days going over the PredictWind app and it proved to be correct for an effortless and comfortable sail. Thanks PredictWind!!
Most accurate 5/5
By iOD Marblehead
I use several programs and at the end of day this seems most accurate to actual conditions
Every time I try to access the free download it try’s to get me to purchase the advanced version blocking me from getting information.
Great app 5/5
Use it all the time when planning a day of sailing.
Spotty Accuracy. 4/5
I’ve been at the marina looking at 2mph winds and the app says 10 knots. Predictions are very spotty.
Powerful Knowledge in a Single Site 5/5
By OH/NY boater
Have an Island cottage requiring private boat access. Information on PredictWind is very accurate and timely. Tells me where to position my boat most safely for mooring, and whether planned boat trip will be pleasant, or a bit ‘hairy ‘. Meteorologists and computer modelers on PredictWind are top tier.
Blank screen 1/5
By Saltwater Renegade
Isn’t loading any maps.
Love this app 5/5
We have always found predict wind to be the most accurate boating app. Love it!!
Great tool 5/5
I really appreciate the information from this app before I head out onto the Hudson
Phishing attack immediately after signup 1/5
By Huckin Filbilly
10 minutes after I register with this app, my email gets a phishing attack/blackmail using the same email & one off password that I just used to register with predict wind. I’m staying away from this company.
Nice touch 5/5
Easy and accurate.
There is no better or more comprehensive source of weather data for our sailing grounds. PredictWind is simply indispensable.
Bait and Switch 1/5
I have used this apps for a couple of years. This year I upgraded to basic as we are cruising up the inside passage to Alaska. The basic package says it includes 1km resolution forecast maps; 9 saved forecast locations; wave, rain, cloud, isobar maps; wind observations; and forecast alerts. I don’t get most of that. After emailing the help desk they told me I only get one 1km resolution map, as in 1 and never another and I don’t get wave maps. Those are the only reasons I upgraded. There are several other apps that will give you the information they are giving for free. Skip if you want more detail or want to deal with an honest company. If I could post a picture of what they tell is included I would.
Getting ready to buy 5/5
While at Maritme school, MERTS, in Astoria (Columbia River Entrance) I have been using the free version of Predict Wind. Now I am getting ready to sail from San Diego to Astoria I am planning on buying the 12 months version.
Great for offshore fishing 4/5
Use this app in conjunction with other apps before going offshore. Weeklong feature seems to be true to course. Too bad weatherman doesn’t use it.
Enjoy Predictwind 5/5
By Dustoff Man
It is taking me a little time to navigate this program, but I am liking it More and more as I work my way through it.
Race, pleasure or fish 5/5
By On hold again
Invaluable app to get a heads up on the day. As accurate as anyone else and free. Great for looking ahead accurately (mostly). I am sure part art, and part science, saved my buddies and me today we saw your forecast and stayed in instead of going out and hitting bad conditions.
Quite useful 5/5
The free version gives you predictions with 8 km spatial resolution. Good enough for me to decide when to go paddleboarding for two hours or so. User interface completely intuitively. Heard of a public ocean weather service that even they make use of the predictWind forecasts.
Easy use 5/5
I’m 60 an not a tech person but this site is so easy to use. We fish out of ORI in nc an it’s a dangerous inlet on a good day. So it’s very important to no wind direction an speed.
New to product 3/5
Just learning to use the product . Delivering a 49’ sailboat from fla to Newport May 1st and will be using it more
Sad experience. 2/5
By Private 20
The App itself is another piece of fairly good information for offshore weather, not great for costal due to local land influences. However, the administrative billing errors are ubiquitous and continual. Over the course of my four year circumnavigation I have only had 1 instance where I got the service I paid for. Tech support quality has declined noticeably as Predicted Wind’s popularity has increased. I’m not sure why they can’t get it straight, but it does seem to be beyond their capabilities. So, weather info OK, frustrating time spent, very bad.
Route Planning 5/5
By s/v Adventure
I am a new member to the Predict Wind family and struggling a bit with the route planning. I get two red and two blue routes. I find the tables are the only way to really pick a route but I have seen videos on YouTube where the user gets a recommended rout in yellow. Is this feature still available. Thanks,
Best app to forecast the wind 5/5
It’s the best app for wind that I found
I love all the features. Perfect if you need to forecast the wind.
By Mayor tc
Very useful. Never leave the slip without checking wind speed and direction.
Bike Ride 5/5
Do a lot of Cycling in Florida. Great App for how I ride for the day.
الخليج العربي 5/5

Es muy ilustrativo y detallado por área hasta ahora es muy preciso y me permite estimar el oleaje durante una semana y poder planificar una pesquería.
Sailing with Predict Wind 5/5
By sv belle
Great app. Gives you more than just wind. Able to plot a trip with all variables with routing.
Excellent product! 5/5
As accurate as they get.
Love this App, nothing compares with this program. We trust it more than anything we have ever used. 65,000 miles and we never even bother to consider a WX router.
Great app 5/5

As a Fisherman this helps greatly in planning trips. Very accurate!!!!! Capt. Foley!!!

Predict wind comments 5/5
I find it very good but would like more location options.
Just the best! 5/5
By ŃMNNM MN
Best weather source I’ve used for planning our cruises.
By Capt. By trade
Simple to use and does everything I need to run my sailing business.
Very handy 5/5
Quite useful for racing.
Too many limitation!!! 1/5
This app has too many limitations for a free account! Even has only 2 forecast predictions per free account which means that after you open the app for the first time to check it out you have only a second time view and you get the msg that you reached the limit! All the features it has are for the pay ware version! It’s a total scam. Worthless!
Very useful tool 5/5
By Satisfied with product
I’ve used it for a couple of years, found it to be pretty accurate both current and future
Sailing in Long Island Sound 5/5
By Squirrel whispers
PerfectWind is an easy to use, accurate and indispensable tool for planning sailing in the LIS
Not worth the money :( 2/5
I spent the $30 and tried so hard to like this app, but it’s just not accurate. I get better wind predictions from the native iPhone Weather app. Aside from not being able to set basic map defaults and the complete lack of miles per hour, the twelve (or longer!) hour delay times for updates on windspeed...this thing wouldn’t even be worth one dollar. Apparently you get more features if you spend an additional $60, but I can already see that’s not worth it, either.
Live and learn, I suppose.
