Ratings and Reviews
Not the Best
This app is very basic and rudimentary. There is no help or how to use instructions. You just have to figure it out on your own.
You can't change any settings like wind speed measurement. It only displays speed in knots, I want it in MPH, but knots is all you get.
Also, it's a static display, there is no animated movement showing trend. When you change between different type of map displays like street, topo, bing, it takes forever to load the screen, and I have super fast internet connection. I think I wasted my money on buying this app. Going to delete.

A cold front blows into my area. I’m a licensed pilot and I keep tabs on weather forecasts BUT when I’m not flying, I’m typically working outside on a couple of ranches we have in Texas, and wind plays a big role on what “chores” I might or might not be able to do. This app has historically been exceedingly inaccurate in advising what the winds will be like in an hour, or the next day. In fact, after today’s strong cold front blew in (out of the north) the app shows surface winds will be blowing from the southwest, not only for the next several hours, but throughout the entire next day.
.. I purchased this app a few years back, it is intuitive with useful info at glance for a paraglider like me - very reliable forecast. The wind barbs are a nice plus.
Thank you for the update of
force and speed in various formats. Free topo and marine maps are also appreciated.
