Ratings and Reviews
Good app for finding what the wind and waves are doing for a spot of kayaking. So far been out at sea 4 times using it and it’s been accurate each time. A good starting guide to the weather. Going out today and it predicts hot weather, flat seas and gentle breezes. Should be a good day round the island
Widget not working
As a wind app for sailing and stuff I love it, so much so I bought the yearly premium subscription. All the features work except for the widgets which I am unable to add to my Home Screen. I have emailed customer support and have received a reply but it wasn’t helpful and just repeated what the website said and didn’t solve the issue. My phone is updated so it’s not that and I have a account set up and have had premium for over a month now and it’s still not working. Could you please solve this issue, I really like your app and think you have a great product. Only things I think you could add is the ability to see tide times and levels and what the tides strength is and more detailed weather information as there is lots of detail for wind which I get is the purpose of the app but still I think it could do with more weather descriptions and stuff. Also if you could make the app support Siri that would be really good and a nice feature that you could add to the premium subscription to encourage people to pay the wee bit extra which isn’t much but definitely worth it.
Developer Response ,
first of all, thank you for deciding to subscribe to Windfinder Plus and your detailed feedback and your feature requests.
Regarding tide data: we have tide forecast data as well, but it is not available for all spots. The spot needs to be located nearby a tide measurement station. We created a video how to get and read tide data: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KJ4g0u2vns
Which other "more weather descriptions and stuff" do you wish to see in Windfinder? Other forecast parameters? We are keen to know!
About your issue not being able to get the Widgets: please contact our support team again! Please write a message with the feedback form out of the app. We will give our best to solve that issue.We apologize for the inconvenience.
Some odd omissions
Whilst the super forecast appear good, there are some annoying omissions: It isn’t possible to add your current location to the favourites list; it isn’t possible to edit the name of favourite location or add a note; it isn’t possible to add a location from the map to favourites; the forecasts default to daylight hrs only rather than 24hrs. All of these features are available with Windy and other apps. However, as mentioned, the super forecast is good.
