very useful and correct prediction.
Excellent planning tool 5/5

Using windy has made sailing trip management much more reliable.
By BMU junkie
You should put a sensor on Salesforce Tower in San Francisco. We use your app to get an idea of the wind conditions to fly the window washing unit from on top of the building but comparing the app to the anemometer, the app is not even close.
Love the app 5/5
By makunu soo
Love the app. It will be nice if you guys can get us little bit more features for free. Its too limited.
The standard to beat for information visualization. 5/5
By user 272475728
Forecast is reasonably accurate. Subtract 10% accuracy for every day out past the current.
Great app 5/5
This is a very precise app.
Boaters, don’t waste your time 1/5
Windy is not at all as advertised. Hugely disappointing, and a waste of time and money. Pro is expensive and promises several cool features, but actually offers the very same basic wind/temp/precip data available on the free app (and a gazillion other free apps.) Windy promises wave/tide data, but it’s not actually available.
I tried to work directly with Customer Support for resolution instead of posting a negative review, but instead of responding to the issue at hand (no line for wave data) their focus was on investigating data for some specific “spot”.) Apparently it is up to the customer to find whatever mysterious “spots” might actually have the data. I haven't found one yet, but unless you happen to be sailing on one of those unidentified spots, Windy has no sea data available anyway.
ME: Still no line for wave heights, even in Surf mode.
CS: For which spot you try to find this info?
ME: Chicago, Michigan City, IN, Waukegan, IL, East Chicago IN. There’s no line for waves on any screen.
CS: So, first, we should know what spot?
That you give that it is name of place, not a name of spot!
Seriously? Pick ANY of the pre-determined Windy “spots” in or near Chicago, Waukegan, Michigan City, etc. NO spots have wave height data, maybe because there is no line on the Surf page or any other page for wave data. For example:
What Windy claims is available: (I selected 10 features):
Wind direction, speed, and gusts; air temp, and clouds/precipitation. ALSO, swell size and direction, swell height, swell period, water temp, and tidal charts.
What the PAID Windy Pro app actually offers for major public “spots” (not even custom!): the same 5 basic features available on the free version (and a gazillion other free apps):
Wind direction, speed, and gusts; air temp, and clouds/precipitation.
(NO wave/tide data.)
What’s even worse is its still not ad-free. Even the expensive ($39.99) Windy Pro uses valuable screen space for “Special Offers” - aka links to advertisers, etc.
Absolutely positively not worth it for marine weather data. If you want sea data, try BuoyWeather instead.
Boater beware! Older boater that is. 2/5
If your hoping to use this app for boating activities on the water be advised, the fonts, color contrasts and info lines are difficult enough to read from your recliner at home let alone a bouncing boat. There is no way on my iPhone to expand the font size to read or pinch down. Great info if your at dock planning a voyage but of little help if you are underway. :(
Issue is visual. I cannot zoom into very small data bands to read comfortably. Need to have ability to zoom especially when moving.
By Clay Pit
Numbers need to be a color that stand out better or larger. Hard to read at a glance.
Great app 4/5
Love this app, I use it for trip planning on the sailboat.
Inaccurate. Full of ads. 1/5
By Carl Captain
This app is full of ads. The swell information is inaccurate. I need a refund of my $29.99.
Kish Island 5/5
Thanks for your excellent app and services . It helps me a lot .
Missing the Barometric Pressure 3/5
I would have never updated the app if I knew y’all took away the barametric pressure reading. Love the app and constantly use it for bass fishing! I find this app is the most accurate with wind readings and predictions. But I’m not going to pay 39.99 just to get the barometric pressure readings... EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED y’all took it away
Very useful in the bahamas.
Best weather app. 5/5
Best weather app. I have found it to be the most accurate app for find and precipitation as well.
Essential App 5/5
I use this app extensively when planning fishing trips. 🎣
Beware of updates! 2/5
By Doneld Duck
Affair to install updates : (
last time I installed updates It removed all my wind charts and would only let me see them if I purchased the pro version ?
A boaters dream 5/5
By Holiday Yachting
Thank u 4/5
Constant pop-ups 1/5
Every update has an annoying pop-up notification to try and sell a new service.
Hard to read 2/5
Fonts are way too small and color contrast make viewing the app difficult. Need to be able to pinch and zoom.
Good luck 3/5
Cool graphics and neat features. Abysmal explanation and support.
I almost love this, but 3/5
By Not impressive
The first day I used this app it seemed
like I hit the jackpot. Forecast wind event was right on time. I live in an RV so
need accuracy in reporting. As I type this, Windy reports winds of only 7mph while my other weather app is more accurately reporting the 36mph gusts we are experiencing. So I question the accuracy or ability of the app for real time reporting. We will see if it does better later this week when we are expecting another windy day. But a bit disappointed at this point.
Sailor's Tool 5/5
Very good app if you rely on the wind to make your boat go.
It’s useful for the best sailor I know 4/5
By sailor's love
My Polish sailor called to tell me about the Windy app before taking on a four-day, four-night sail. It worked. And I could watch the winds!
RC flyers best friend 5/5
By Roughcut Studios
I use this great app to check conditions at all my local flying spots.
Easy to see which days are best and which days are no fly days.
App still crashing 🤬 2/5
The latest version says the critical bug was fixed eight hours ago, but my app is still crashing every time i open it. I’ve killed the app and also restarted my phone. No dice. I think it may be time to use another app.
By tasos love
After latest update, app no longer works on iPhone X
Puerto Rico 5/5
Great app but now the tide tables disappeared.
Most thorough and well designed wind/weather app 5/5
I use this app for sailing. I have downloaded many wind forecast apps, but beyond dedicated weather routing software none come close to the beauty, design, and depth that windy has.
First, the interface is simple, easy to navigate, customizable, and puts all the data you need right at your finger tips.
Second is the breath of numerical models. In North America you have the trusty GSF, but you also get the benefits of the NAM model and the ICON model. In Europe they have a whole suite of models
available as well. The wind data from all these models can be displayed at the same time so you can use the real world conditions to see which model seems to line up best and thus guide your choices.
Third, local wind related shops can advertise in the app. I used it to find boat rentals near me when I go traveling.
All in all it is a fantastic app. I wish the developer would make a similar platform except that would incorporate other parameters of the various numerical models so I could have this same interface for parameters such as winds aloft or precipitation. It would also be fun to have some of these other parameters on the global view as well.
By Kure beach wind
Nice to have a reliable source for wind readings.
Greatest site I have found
I highly recommend it to any buddy that lives up north weather you running a fishing vessel or own a airplane or someone like me that has a fishing and hunting lodge right on the Gulf of Alaska where the only way to get here is by plane
Widget wish. 3/5
Love the app, I use it daily for work but I really, really wish there was a Notification Center widget. So far that’s the only thing keeping it from a 5 star app. Please consider adding one.
Awesome info, but accuracy spotty 4/5
By BA Smith
I haven’t found a better app yet that is free that displays wind info better. However, I still haven’t found an app yet that is accurate most of the time—including this one. Great info. Great display and organization. Iffy accuracy (but that goes for any wind prediction apps I’ve ever downloaded).
Windfarm work 5/5
By windfarm guy
I rely on this app daily it’s a lifeline to what I do and it’s very accurate and I’m very happy that I have it I work in the wind farms I take apart the wind turbines and put them back together and it’s always pretty windy where I’m at and without it we could endanger me and endanger the lives of work the guys that work for me so I absolutely love it and it’s really accurate
Windy is awesome! 5/5
I’m enjoying Windy and use it all the time! Thanks for this incredible resource!
I live and cruise on my boat. Mostly I have tied up in a slip in a Marina, but lately I have been traveling and exploring. Knowing when to move and where to anchor are crucial to our safety and comfort. Windy does one thing and does it well. It tells me about the wind. Where is it coming from and how strong will it be? Simple, but crucial information. Wouldn’t leave the dock without it.
Just what I was looking for! 5/5
I've tried many different wind apps, for work as well as recreation in Maine, USA. This one is the best I've found, great graphics and very useful detail. Thank you!
The future is here 5/5
It’s about time I can get every bit of info in one app and also that it has an hourly image form makes this app tons better then any other weather apps I’ve used !!
Don’t waste your money on pro!!!! 1/5
By Rooster boy2d8
Winds are backwards. They won’t answer emails. History is worthless. Also check the timeline. It seems not to set for your time zone. Would be a great app if they put some work into it.
Awesome app 5/5
By Mang G
- fantastic visualisation of not just wind data, but also tides and other data
- great for fishing, sailing and any kind of water activity
- and its FREE!
Great app 5/5
This is a great app that gives you all the information to stay in safe waters. I use it all the time before leaving the dock.
Info to interface 5*'s 5/5
Top to bottom app that's easy to sort out and collects a wealth of information. I track conditions for surfing, fishing and the wind charts help for hiking conditions. There is more to it, check it out.
** Update- this app is also beginning to support small business related to the different hobbies it relates to. Bang up job!
Possibly good 3/5
This might be a good app, but I cannot find any explanation of the meaning of the symbols or what is being shown.
I am a pilot and engineer and am still not sure what it is showing.
A “Help Me” link would be really good
By englewood willie
Use it every time before going out in the gulf fishing. Great app!
