  • Do not buy

    By Miremiremonalisa
    Hard to add cities and figuring out this app
  • Completely inaccurate

    By XxDisappointedxX
    This app is never accurate. I consistently check the Annapolis buoy and it is consistently way off the mark by more than five MPH.
  • Great improvement and now it's Amazng

    By MachKing
    This is the best wind app on the web now. Amazing amount of data for my pleasure trips on the beautiful but can be very hazardous Great Lakes. If you never been to the Northern Great Lakes you haven't lived yet.

    By meleana island
    Great app normally but all of a sudden the app only displays night hours and I can't seem to get it back to day hours ... otherwise it's the best app for wind conditions for SUP paddling and actually is the only weather app that shows Dana Point Harbor .. !!! Fixed the night issue BUT NOW DANA POINT HARBOR is no longer available !!! Can't use this app now ... what SO JUST GOT A RESPONSE THAT DANA POINT HARBOR HAS BEEN REPLACES BY Dp HEADLANDS .. THIS IS WINDFINDER !!! WE LIVE BY THE HARBOR TO PADDLE SUP SO HEADLANDS WINDS DONT MATTER TO ANYONE ... HARBOR WINDS TELL US EVERTHING ... U BLEW IT .. WIND HINDERS PADDLERS WE NEED WIND INFO FOR THE HARBOR !! ... *** Continued GOT APP RESPONSE BUT CANT OPEN IT LOL .. and it says that I can make a weather station hahahahahaha not ... again the developer knows nothing about wind .... he removed harbor info where people paddle outside and need wind info ... the replacement of headlands is moronic .. who uses that lol bring harbor wind back or we all are deleting this useless app ... thank u and if ur going to reply u might want to allow us to open it ... just sayin Ha
  • Not very accurate

    By Jasd x
    I'm very disappointed with this app, tried to get my money back but Apple refused. I would not recommend this app, wish I could give it zero stars but it won't let me so I give it one star.
  • Not accurate and they're not bothered

    By dbcooper866393
    I bought the pro version for sailing because I live a ways from my boat and want to know whether to go. It is just not accurate and even in the moment, it will show current conditions really different than whats happening right now, never mind forecasting. The tide times are like 5 hours off and I emailed the app and they replied saying I was right and they'd fix it but that was 9 months ago and its still like that.
  • I'm glad I found it

    By Flybynight812
    It works for me. I was looking for a wind specific forecast app and this fits the bill. Plus it gives you some regular weather forecast as well. I'm in the northeast and use it for the Finger lakes and Great Lakes.
  • Windfinder pro server error

    By Jbaycaddie
    Latest version works great! Thanks for the fix and update communication!
  • Good app - problem with recent update

    By Saguaro Sam
    This is one of my favorite apps - I use it regularly for my sailing. But, the Mar-15 upgrade has a problem - the timeline is messed up. I see only "PM" hours - no "AM" hours. Please fix this soon!
  • Time scale is messed up

    By ErikC987
    Time shown per interval does not make sense.. PM where am is normally and all PM
