Windy: wind and waves forecast app reviews

  • Buggy UI, INFO VERY USEFUL 2/5

    By CVudu
    Until the app is cleared of a great many bugs, the program is almost unusable. Constant crashes, side bars with no method to close...
  • Unbeatable 5/5

    By FJ1157
    Very reliable and dependable. Did I mention that it is very versatile. So many different option to be able to use and look at. I use it to look at winds aloft at different altitudes. I use it to plan out mornings and evenings for flying powered paraglider trips.
  • The Best 5/5

    By Alireza Saraei
    As a mariner enjoyed this app. This is great of great. Dear Developer Please put an item to show TRS(Tropical Revolving Storm) path. many thanks
  • Love this app but 4/5

    By Crisscan
    Love this app but please fix the bug causing it to crash when opening airgram on iOS.
  • Fantastic features 4/5

    By 16rounds
    Fantastic features. If navigating around the app’s features was a bit more simple and intuitive, I would have given it five stars.
  • Wow... 5/5

    By Awesomesauce609
    Ok what’s the catch? I can’t believe this is free. Loaded with features. Everything I need in one app!
  • Best weather app so far 5/5

    By McAfrican
    Used to try misc 10+ weather forecast apps and felt it has become a sorta quest but with Windy the grail was found. Quite easy in use and 98% reliable thing. Thank u devs and keep on the good foot!
  • Simply a work of love 5/5

    By -photoflash
    What a wonderful service for everyone outside. Thanks
  • Excellent app 5/5

    By Coney ledge
    This app is wonderful for planning and for knowing what’s going on outside. The various layers are super-helpful for Flight planning as well. The simple and intuitive interface is very user friendly. I like that one can get as detailed as they want, with meteograms, etc. Before it was changed, I used to use the Storm app as a supplement, because it showed surface prog charts and storm tracks. Those would be two layers that this app could benefit from ASAP. The other Change I would make would be to be able to place several layers on at once (cloud base and CAPE, for example).
  • Overwhelming Options, Underwhelming Performance 2/5

    By Meisty
    I really wanted to like this app. It offers so, so much in terms of data sources, displays, predictions, and potential usefulness. Unfortunately the app design does not provide adequate tools for users to choose and manage these options. Every data option is excessively detailed, simple choices, like F or C temp. display, cannot be saved even though the SAVE button is pressed. Display options for temp. gradients are inconsistent. Labels for features like the speed of radar animation are barely visible on an iPad and nearly invisible on iPhone. This app offers so much potential. It could have been great. Instead it comes across as a mess of sources that were combined with little thought about function and user experience.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Aaaeeeus
    Great forecasts
  • Fantastic app 5/5

    By dbalint7
    Best app out there for a visual depiction of the weather in whichever way you want to see it. Currently ad-free and with a very well designed interface. One request: This app would be 11/10 if you could add a clouds layer on top of the temperature layer.
  • My favorite 5/5

    By Bridget Carrie
    Here on the windy West Coast I have to know what's going on with the weather and Windy never lets me down. You won't believe the precise detail and beautiful graphics of this app until you see it for yourself.
  • The best I have ever used 5/5

    By renegademike
    I run a charter operation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and fish over 200 days a year. I have been using windy for 3 years now and it is the most accurate weather forecasting I have ever used. The hourly forecast is one of the best features. I can plan my day behind windy. I highly recomend it
  • Windy 5/5

    By tide viewer
    Awesome! And accurate...
  • So fun! 5/5

    By firestar2222
    I don’t write a lot of reviews, but this app is so cool I had to do one. The amount of information is amazing, and even better is the way it is implemented. The alert feature is especially innovative and useful. Just get it!
  • Good but ... 4/5

    By Markp17
    The app is great however the colours overlaid on map make no sense , eg I want to know where it is going to snow and the colours range from blue to red , how can that be useful for snow ? Most weather forecasts I see for snow show white for snow and blue for rain
  • This is the future of weather apps 5/5

    By Molecat.
    With an entirely new and vital approach to understanding winds, clouds and weather phenomena, Windy is my go to screen whenever I need to refresh my mind and tune out all the noise surrounding me on social media. It’s actually therapeutic to watch the soothing paths of wind over the Earth’s surface!
  • Crashing 4/5

    By Bob Jones VI
    Air grams and meteograms crash the app. You cannot set an account picture. Those features are broken. Otherwise it is a fantastic app.
  • Latest iOS 11.3 breaks Windy’s Airgram mode 2/5

    By tennr
    Latest iOS 11.3 breaks Windy’s Airgram mode, screen scrolls up, like the airgram window is opening and closing. Have to kill app to stop it. Posting this here because there is apparently no other way to contact support.
  • Whoa! 1/5

    By DaveWWW
    Update: Now I'm getting harassing emails from the developer to change the review. To use the app fully, apparently, logging in with email address and password is required. That is definitely not happening. App removed.
  • The BEST!! 5/5

    By Cavewomancafe
    We live on an outer island in the San Juan Islands of Washington state. The only way on and off our island is with a boat or a float plane. Knowing what the weather and winds are going to do is essential to our safety and the safety of our boats. We have found that Windy is the most reliable and consistently correct weather app we have used so far. We downloaded it in September, it is now March, and only once was Windy incorrect. ONLY ONCE! Pretty darned good! Windy, keep up the good work! You are keeping us safe and happy!!
  • Pretty accurate, UI needs work 4/5

    By LoLaMC
    This is one of the best weather apps with regards to the accuracy of its forecasts. However, to me, the app design is a bit frustrating: why can't it remember my previous view and instead always defaults to something I am not interested in. Also, it seems absurd that the favorite locations can only be displayed on the map at the expense of some weather data. Finally, I do not understand why, when opening the app, the map centers on a location that is neither my current position (location is on) or one of my saved locations... Those minor gripes seem pretty easy to address, and when they are this app will be perfect.
  • Changed review 5/5

    By Iamharrythehat
    I originally gave this app a review of 1 star due to the latest software update, which made the forecasting tool way off as far as temperatures in my area. Since the review not only has it improved but Apple contacted me to see if it had changed and offered assistance in any fixes! Now that’s standing behind your product, another reason why my household is APPLE!
  • Glitchy 3/5

    By GMOM11
    Nice app, but the settings are glitchy. Registered as a user to save settings and yet, the units still default to metric. UPDATE 3.8.18: unfortunately, the setting glitch still appears to be happening. No matter how many times I set the temp unit to Fahrenheit, it defaults to Centigrade when using the ‘advanced settings’. Also, time format selection doesn’t work.
  • I am blown away. 5/5

    By postylem
    This is an amazing weather forecast app with beautiful responsive performance and so many features. Dependable, fast, customizable.
  • I would make sweet love to this app 5/5

    By Seattle Rex
    if only i could. best weather app, paid or free, ever made, end of story, end of discussion, I am right, period.
  • Application 5/5

    By Nabil sarvari
    This is the best weather application in the App Store Thanks for using free
  • Very expertly designed... 5/5

    By Dga223
    Weather apps are like opinions, everyone has one. In the case of Windy, I don't need any of the other paid or free weather applications, this has it all. Excellent design and operation for such a small storage footprint. Smooth radar, great map design. Everything one needs to know about wind from a novice to pro, including isolines and wind barbs (called airgrams in the app) that are not found in other popular apps No text forecast predictions like all the others that are just that, always inaccurate. Its easy to predict your own weather with Windy, as all the tools are there. Want to know your own accurate forecast for the weekend? Screenshot to your camera roll the aspect you want to know, wind, temps, sun, clouds etc... early in the week, take a screenshot every day or every other day, and watch the trend, by Friday you will have a fairly accurate idea of what your weekend will be like. Kudos to the developers and code team for a well designed and smooth operating weather app.
  • Great app 5/5

    By OcTaNE RusHeZ
    As a commercially rated pilot, I highly recommend this app. I use this app on a daily basis to keep myself and my passengers safe! Edit: Multiple months later.. loving the updates!
  • Dependable and ACCURATE 5/5

    By Your boi EAW
    Amazing, Dependable, ect. any good word you could use double it! This app it VERY dependable! I live in the United States and not in Europe. I thought that it could be a stretch with getting a European Weather app when I live in the US but when they pretty much nailed the paths of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate I new it was time to switch. I had a problem I had no clue which on to get. Some friends from Indian who visited recommended this. It took about 5 minuets to figure out but once you do it is SO easy to use and so accurate I have used this in past winter storms of what to expect and I was more prepared than the rest of my family who was depending on the National Weather Service! Thank you so so much Windy Crew!
  • Finally! A perfect weather app! 5/5

    By nhflyer
    This app is amazing...I love the time lapse for all the components....wind, temp, clouds,’s all there and simple to use. So far I feel it is very can get all the weather information you need in seconds.
  • Works well! 5/5

    Great app! Thanks 🙏
  • Lost appeal on iPhone X 4/5

    By jhabdas
    Great app but the display isn’t responsive and doesn’t scale up on the iPhone X. Have not tried app on iPad yet.
  • Beyond what I could have imagined 5/5

    By Pahoo_Katawah
    This app is so good, I continue to be speechless even after a month of solid usage. It gives me the ability to create custom maps with my color preferences and then watch the flow as time progresses through a range of days. And that is only one thing among many. Since I use it on an iPad and I have somewhat large fingers it can be a little tricky sometimes but once done, it’s saved and I can enjoy the results of my handiwork. I thought I saw it was available for a Windows PC/Laptop and if so, next time I’m on I’m going to get it.
  • Love this app! 5/5

    By Ayo Amy
    I have a habit of leaving my location off most of the time to save battery. I noticed when I press the home button it would show me the location and weather of Suffolk county instead of where I am actually located. Not much of an issue if I just turned my location service on but it would be nice to press the button and see the weather update for my area without my location activated.
  • Really Great 5/5

    By Succintt
    Really great. the interface is very good. right guess. Believe it is the best.thank you very much.👌🏻
  • Why not? 5/5

    By Sulkhani
    Just add, 7 days forecast!!! Plus, 24 hours precipitation, (amounts of rain and snow)
  • Inaccurate 1/5

    By Matukut
    I’m sitting here in 40mph winds and it’s showing 3mph. Cute animation though.
  • Snow measurements not in inches? 5/5

    By Hwbman
    Maybe I have not figured out how to configure the app but snow and Ice forecasts are only in centimeters and cannot be converted to inches. Rain does have the option to be shown either way in the metograms.
  • Not iPhone X optimized! 5/5

    By Quentin Biles
    Please update for iPhone X!
  • Awesome! However... 4/5

    By Qwood58
    The latest update has hidden the altitude slider & made it less convenient to use. Yes, it's still there. But it must be opened each time to use it. Whereas it was right on the main screen in the past, making quick adjustments for comparison very quick & easy. For this less than ideal decision, I've snagged 1 star. But for remaining an awesome FREE app, albeit this little blunder, you get to keep the other 4 stars. How about correcting that tiny error in judgement so I can give you your other star back as I really have no use for it.
  • Best Reliable Weather App! 5/5

    By Unclebob1
    Living in the Caribbean, we rely a lot on weather for work and fun such as to go boating, fishing, surfing, etc. I’ve downloaded pretty much every app you can think of and nothing beats Windy. Additionally, it was a great help for this year’s hurricane season. I just have one request: iPhone X support!
  • Great app (hurricane Maria) 5/5

    By IsJayMan
    Great app, used for the most part through hurricane Irma and for hurricane Maria just before the cellphone reception and energy source where gone here in Puerto Rico.
  • GREAT APP! Yet I would like...... 5/5

  • Amazing 5/5

    By Hanson24
    I just started using this app. What a find! So much information at your fingertips. I love it. Thank you developer.
  • Wonderful app, but- 3/5

    By Tripledr
    I love the app and have found it particularly useful in monitoring SO2 content of the air during the recent fires in Northern California. My caveat is that the 12.30 upgrade makes it a lot slower on an older device (IPod 5th Gen). I found the upgrade prettier but degraded in performance.
