Would like to change units to mph
This app is up to date and useful. However, it would be useful if there was a setting to display the wind speeds in mph, rather than knots and m/s.
Nice app but....
It would be nice to able to export the data via email or text.
Too many stars from me
This would be an excellent app ... if it only worked. It doesn't, hasn't for a couple of years, and won't ... until the developers get off their butts & fix it. I've been sailing or fishing this lake for over over 60 years, and rely on the UW's data collection & record-keeping. A shame that what could be a nifty & useful app is merely a consumer of space.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
