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!

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
Most accurate win predictions I found 5/5
I have tried many apps for accurate wind predictions. predict wind most closely mirrors actual conditions.
Great app 5/5
Easy to use and lots of data to look at
Love the app 5/5
Best wind and wave app out there
Used to love it - not any more 1/5
By Bill 470
Have used it for years. I sail out of wifi coverage all the time, Predict wind forecast used to stay on my IPad for days after initial download. Now after app upgrade the app searches for a wifi connection and deletes my existing forecast and tells me I need a wifi connection. Has become useless for me!
False sense of security 1/5
By Wet as Can Be
Checked app. Said seas would be 0-1 ft all day. Went out in calm seas. Came back in 2-4 ft seas. Not good in fishing barge.
Good but not perfect 4/5
Predict Wind (paid version) provides an excellent level of analysis, but is only as accurate as the various models for local weather.
Great App 5/5
This app is uncanny in its ability to predict wind and thereby waves. We recently had to run 1100 miles up the Pacific coast of Mexico in 5 days. This app allowed us to run a course with little wind improving our transit time. Highly recommend!
Missing MPH units for wind speed 5/5
Suggest MPH units for wind speed. Great App free version provides a lot of information. Not sure if I am missing something, but it’s odd that I cannot select mph for wind units.

Need to register to use. Trash.
Easy and detailed 5/5
Any information you want is easy and intuitive to get. The visual representation is one of the best I have seen.
Non SUP 2/5
By meleana island
Wanted an app for wind info in my area ... there are no close landmarks for wind on this app where many of us SUP ! unlike pro wind app ... you must be a boat owner to understand anything on the app and there are no settings to navigate customizing one change in this app .. happy to delete ... paddlers need hour to hour times this starts at 10 am ? Can’t make that out either lol argggg
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.
Ultimately pretty darn good 5/5
We fought for about 18 months with the Predict Wind Offshore App. First with windows 8, then windows 10. Eventually, thanks to determination on our end, and good customer service, we got it going correctly.
The program ( Predict Wind ) is great, we love the departure planning feature. The learning curve is a little painful, just lots of non intuitive steps you have to fumble thru till you get the hang of it, but well worth it.
Now, it's one of our essential planning tools.
Best Wx routing app ever!!!! 5/5
Tortola to Palm, perfect. Panama, Galapagos, Marquesas, Tuamotu’s, Tahiti, Tonga, fiji Auckland perfect!!! Just arrived Bermuda from Newport. PWE right on!
Island caretaker 5/5
I live by this app. Thank you.
Incredibly accurate and dependable wind info. Especially if your hobby is sailboat racing
Incredible app 5/5
I used this app when I brought my boat to Florida from the Northern Chesapeake and it was very very helpful. It’s a great app, easy to use and works great.
Far more reliable than the NOAA marine forecast
Must have! 5/5
A definite must have for the racing or cruising sailor. Great integration with B&G chart plotters too.
Very informative..!!!! 5/5
By sv lorelei
Thanks Great Job👍🌬🌬😎
Perfect app with all the information presented in whatever you think is the best possible way it is.
Takes a little time to understand the different models and it is disconcerting that at times they disagree so much but, it's all the information and the uncertainty in the models should tell you the uncertainty in the production.
Love the app. Have used it in the Mediterranean Caribbean Pacific in San Francisco bay area and seems very good.
Love this App! 5/5
Predict Wind has helped make our travels throughout the Med, the Caribbean, Bahamas, and East Coast for the past 2.5 years a safer and unforgettable experience. It is my go to for all the weather and route planning. Combined with Iridium Go! we can make good decisions regarding departures and routes.
I've never used an app that was so efficient and helpful. The bonus is the PW team continues to update and improve. Their team is professional, courteous, and they always take the time to help you out if you need it.
Their customer service is second to none.
After all the weather apps I've downloaded this is by far the most accurate and thorough weather app.
If there were 6 stars I'd give it that as my rating.
Clear presentation 5/5
By S/V Sweet Dreams
I like that I can switch between graphics and table. Being able to see all 4 model predictions at the same time is very helpful.
Fantastic Wind and Wave Predictor 5/5
By Randy & Ares
This is the only app you'll need for off shore sailing. You will have to pay to get the better features, but the price is reasonable.
Great app 5/5
I'm a delivery captain and sailing instructor and depend on this app Dailey.
Great Application for sailors !! 4/5
After a three years of constant use, I'm quite satisfied with the features of this app. However, I'd like to see the following capabilities implemented:
1. User should have capabilitity to (a) interchange the order of the graphs, for example, wind speed followed by atmospheric pressure, or
2. User should have capabilitity to superimpose graphs. For example, wind speed over atm pressure.
3. Provide the option to show a graph showing the average of the two graphs. ie, the midpoint between the two graphs.
4. Provide user graph entries on the chart to plot actual observations to compare the merits of the various app's graphs. User can save screen shots
Great App 5/5
Good Data, But Still Need Caution 5/5
I really like the 4 different models to review. In our area he European model is often more accurate, but still many times actual results are off 6-12 hours from predictions. So one has to still use local knowledge and sixth sense when crossing big straits. I always consult thus but never rely solely on its predictions.
Accurate in my area. 5/5
I need to preface this with the fact that I've only been able to use PredictWind for about a month, but is has been more accurate and useful than the local weather reports regarding wind strength direction and even the timing of precipitation.
By None really
Very accurate in the Great Lakes.
Great program 5/5
By Defel 67
Great graphics and easy to use modeling programs. I would definitely recommend.
Great display of info 5/5
Meaningful and thought out. Awesome app 2xthumbs
By Buzzard's Toys
This is the best weather app by farrrr
Very useful for San Juan island cruising as the wind here is quite intense at times. With this app, I can find a sheltered anchorage with ease.
Great wind app. 5/5
By boat bear
This app does everything that I need for boating in California and Florida.
The best by far 5/5
The interface isn't glitzy but the underlying models are by far the best available. I have been using this app for many years for kitesurfing. Also tried everything else: windguru, windy, windytv, iwindsurf, etc etc. They all focus on pretty user interfaces but the forecast data they use is raw and often what's available for free, i.e. GFS. Predictwind not only use the more costly but superior ECMWF data but they have further improved it by accounting for land masses etc, i.e. The PWE model. Don't ask me the technical details, all I know is that their model is almost always spot on here in the Pacific, while the others are all over the place. Unfortunately the high resolution models require a very expensive subscription. I hope the prices will go down, as Predictwind would actually increase their revenue coz more peeps would sign up.
Looks good so far 4/5
Just started using the app and there is a lot of info here. There are 4 models that predict wind. If you put the initials as indicated and add wind, you will get the explanations. With 4 models you can make your decision.
As to some of the other information, they are asking for an "upgrade".
Fabulous App 5/5
Offshore around the Pacific , just fabulous !
My go-to passage planning app 5/5
By Lord Jeffrey Amherst
Weather info is unmatched for its intuitive presentation of comprehensive data. I especially value seeing more than several forecasts at once. A real time-saver. The departure planning tool greatly increases my confidence when planning offshore passages in our trawler (6.5 knot cruising speed). Integration of PredictWind with the IridiumGO! device is seamless and the data feed is surprisingly fast and reliable. Best of all, because of the satellite connectivity, PredictWind functions as well while underway as it does in port. All in all, it is an outstanding product.
Very good 4/5
Quite accurate, at least as accurate as NOAA. Easy to use. I consult it daily in season.
Latest version graphics are superb 4/5
I find the app very useful, and accurate, for sailboat racing in San Francisco Bay.
The latest update features significantly enhance graphics that make the information even clearer and particularly good for showing changes through the day.
Really good real time info especially for wind.
Great App 5/5

Very useful and easy to use.
They sell your email address 1/5
In order to get this app you have to sign up with an email address... My email was immediately flooded with spam and random advertisements and has since. It's been a slow process to unsubscribe from all these spam senders. Money hungry app if you ask me... Deleted
