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

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.
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
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
By capt. Foley
As a Fisherman this helps greatly in planning trips. Very accurate!!!!! Capt. Foley!!!
No blowhard 5/5
By fair weather Bob
Very accurate, informative and helpful
Couldn’t change wind speed to MPH! P.O.S. Apple 8 user.
Predict wind comments 4/5
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.
Just an email spam site? 1/5
So I go through the trouble of registering for an account and then can’t get past the “add location” screen! Lame. Plus you have to login every time? Sad...
Pretty good 4/5
The support is excellent, but graphics and models are the same as Squid for a fraction of the price.
Great App 4/5
By Jerry's Kid
I wish you could opt out of the Military time.
Otherwise the interface is fantastic.
All the data I need... 5/5
Actually more than I need. But more data is better than less....
User friendly 5/5
I’m a Sternman on a commercial lobster vessel; we have 800 traps 5-10 miles outside. This app has been extremely useful for me for planning purposes. Also, their upgrade options are great, and definitely worth the short money as far as I’m concerned.
- Also, I had a simple question about one of the app’s features that I emailed to their support center for clarity, and got an RSVP the same day.
Hope this helps!
The best go to weather site 5/5
This is the best go-to weather site
Very helpful weather planning 5/5
By Big dog snoopy
I’m a Captain on motor yachts and have my own sailboat, This program is easy to use and to see how the “predicted” weather forecasts for winds & sea conditions will effect my motoring or sailing. The forecast here is only as good as the data models are accurate. I’ve used this program from local waters in New England up to Maine and Florida to the Caribbean and it’s been very helpful.
Not what I expected 2/5
I bought this app for $31 because it appeared to have wave height information for the Great Lakes. It doesn’t. Also, the wind gusts seem to usually be grossly overstated.
Excellent app for sailors!!! Thanks
