Ratings and Reviews
App crashes, product is unusable
Big disappointment, the app crashes constantly and the product is unusable. Waste of money and time, not worth 99 cents let alone 99 dollars. Developers, pull this product from the market until you fix it.
Got this at Christmas in a Pollyanna. The app is a horrible, constantly crashing. Really this is just a silly invention. Dollar store junk.
Works Well but Very Basic
I just purchased a Vaavud wind meter for use with my iPhone 5 to check wind speed when kite flying on the beach. It works exceedingly well… simple, high quality, and durable. Be sure and check it out if you're into any activity where knowing the wind speed would be helpful or interesting.
This app works perfectly, but is very basic with only the ability to display current and mean windspeed over a brief period of time. There's no ability to save, share, or export wind speed recording sessions.
It's a good start but could be so much better with a little more time and effort. Personally I wouldn't mind paying for a "pro" version offering the features I already mentioned and more.
