Windy: wind and waves forecast app reviews

  • 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

    By krpilot
    to be able to select satellite ir loops as map layer... really beautiful app, thanks guys! jg

  • Outstanding 5/5

    By The Rologist
    We have a new Weather campion and it’s I use weather geek which is good but not reliable. tells the whole story and it just keeps getting better. Keep up the good works folks you have set the bar.
  • all I have to say is.... 5/5

    By Tiedyefsh
  • Definitely a great app 5/5

    By 与哈咯
    Thanks for the great app
  • 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.
  • Weather! Hallelujah! 5/5

    By Acornbringer
    Been looking for weather apps for a while and saw some other app using a source called "Windy" for their radar data so I thought I would check it out. Low and behold Windy turned out to be the weather app of my dreams! So easy to use and so much visual and statistical data at my fingertips. And with the new visual update, things feel sleeker and look more appealing than ever with no features being compromised! For those looking for a no-nonsense and complete weather app, just stop looking and download this! Its premium quality for no cost. Great work on this great app! I hope to use it for a long time to come :) My feedback for the developer would be to keep it optimized and keep the interface clean and to the point. I have old hardware (iPhone 5s) and it would kill it for me if it stopes being as smooth as it is now to pop open and read/see the weather.
  • Not working with IOS 11.1 beta. 5/5

    By Presbray
    Not a criticism as I am on a beta release. More of a heads up. Love the app.
  • My favorite weather app by far. 5/5

    By rickmoody
    This shows just about everything that an amateur weather buff would like. It's not as localized as other apps but this gives a greater picture overall. The only fault I have found is the forecast temperature for my area, So Cal, are lower than reality. It was 105° today and the forecast was 99°. Other than that it's still my favorite weather app.
  • What AlpineClimbr said! 5/5

    By Norsely
    Well spoken, indeed. Just go back up and read it again.
  • What's not to like? 5/5

    By OberSkier
    I love this app! I have used many other ones, this one is easy and intuitive. If you are into Boating, kitesurfing or just want a easy way to get an idea of what the wind and the weather will be for the next few days this works.
  • Excellent Reference 5/5

    By AlpineClimbr
    This is a great app and an excellent reference. I don't understand and the negativity. If you are relying on a iPhone app to give you critical make-or-break marine weather decisions then you probably don't belong offshore. If you use this app as a single component in a well thought out approach to weather forecasting then you're going to love it. It loads fast, has great data (often more accurate than the NBDC text forecasts) and is easy to use.
  • Great potential but 3/5

    By Dark Horse (NB)
    Unfortunately it randomly crashes hard even on a new IPad Pro 10”.
  • Legit 5/5

    By I do, so you don't
    This App is beyond great! Hats off to the developers!
  • Sadly VERY Accurate! 5/5

    By Hugo A Luna
    With this App I noticed every Hurricane of 2017 before they had names. I’m so impressed with this app. It’s shocking to see but good to be able to monitor major disaster.
  • Best Weather App for Aviation 5/5

    By MIKESTER8000
    I can't believe I didn't run across this app sooner - the features are incredible and perfect for aviation. Very impressed!!!
  • It's a great app and essential thing 5/5

    By Agent K 1235
    I am a seafarer and when I need to know the weather infomation like wave height, swell, wind conditions and forecasts, I found this application is very useful and very easy to use. Thank you Windy developers.
  • Finally!! 5/5

    By CubanAv8r
    Finally you have an App!! Keep up the good work! I've been using your website for the past couple years! It works great for winds aloft and forecasting!
  • Great Radar App! 5/5

    By Jamesbev
    Accurate Data, Clean Interface, and it's Free. One of my favorite Weather Apps!
  • Best app ever made 5/5

    By Gizelle Anahi
    I have not come across a better app with more useful content and graphics in any field..not just weather. Cudos to the developers!
  • Top class app 5/5

    By ErsonNarantesDoNacimento
    Works just spectacular.
  • Love the look 4/5

    By Sweet like honey
    I found this app through a uk article about hurricane irma. They were using it and the gorgeous colors and look really got my attention. I am a little worried I won't be able to tell if it showing reality or a modeled forecast. Otherwise, it is very refreshing for a high functioning free app to be gorgeous to look at as well.
  • Fantastic App 5/5

    By PQK2 is an absolutely fantastic app. I found it very useful in forecasting wind speed and direction. I am using it during IRMA Hurricane.
  • Top Weather Synthesis 5/5

    By Akron Archon
    Are you kidding me? This is voodoo! This must be what the NHC watches to forecast...
  • Just awsome! 5/5

    By so sweet so easy
    This must be the best app and the best place to get info about weather. I am in Miami, Florida and it helps me follow hurricane Irma. Thank you!!
