Best thing since sliced bread!

I’m a charter boat captain in Homer Alaska. I was born into commercial fishing in Alaska and have spent my life in some of the most brutal weather areas in the world. I’ve spent my whole life listening to weather forecasts on the VHF and SSB radio’s and when I could watch the news and using NOAA websites. All those options are great and have been life savers but WindAlert puts everything I want and need all right in my hand to look at all the time. Even when I get out of telephone service I can check the things I recently looked at and know when it’s time to boogie. WindAlert is also by far the closest you can get (in my area of the world) to what’s actually happening with the weather. There predictions are almost always spot on. I trust them as much if not more then NOAA weather. They need to put this technology into a satellite phone with a reasonable service plan and I’d be a life long member!

Developer Response ,

SO appreciated, Jay.

Inclusion of tide reports in panel with wind is worth the extra step to get to wind

Initially I was upset at the sudden change of the interface requiring 2 steps to see the wind direction forecast (how lazy and spoiled I've become) but as I've explored it more and gotten used to it, I'm happy with the update. I use the forecast for planning my birding outings and like having the inclusion of tide reports right there with the wind so the addition of a step here eliminates multiple steps to view the tide reports.

You made our day, Lemur Queen. :)

Some great functions on this app, but price structuring and customer service not for me

Free advice to the developer. When someone offers feedback through review, a curtious response could be the difference of them revising their review to more stars and giving you praise or canceling their membership and lowering their stars.

You have a great product and I understand that you need to be able to maintain profitability. My dissapointment is that a basic paid membership doesn't give me access to wind reports that I can't already get from NOAA for free. One option to consider is allowing people with basic memberships to have access to one or two prime spots.

You have a 4-5 star product, but a 2-3 star price structure and a 1-2 on customer reponse (sending me a snarky message after my first review and I see I'm not the only one from reading other reviews). I'm rooting for you to do better.
