Excellent app. Lacks dark mode, but that is literally IT. This app has got you covered!

Do yourself a favor and download this app. It is excellent. Really very reliable forecasts and generally pretty snappy performance. The only other down side I could mention (besides begging again the dev’s PLEASE add dark mode) is the ads are extremely easy to click when trying to view the forecast. Even when you don’t actually mean to click to em. But that can obviously be removed by just upgrading to pro, also a very good option, especially with all the additional features that gives you. But even the free version is really very good.

Super accurate

I am a landscaper in an area known for spotty downpours. Windfinders accuracy with tracking rain has been a big help. I can always expect rain on the hour they say it will hit. We are also prone for hurricanes and their residual effects even if they don’t hit us. Twice this past year our local weathermen were telling us we were going to get slammed with hurricane conditions yet windfinder showed minimal effects..... and windfinder was right. Thanks for being on track!

About 80% accurate

The information is very well put together, easy to understand and be able to see the forecast via a quick glance. Don’t feel like I need a degree in meteorology to read the app like most of the other wind apps out there.

However, the forecasts are about 80% at best. Sometimes if you’re watching the weather for a certain day, the wind and temperature forecast can change dramatically from day to day. One day it might say 78 degress but within twelve hours the forecast will change and show 69 deg. Then twelve hours later it reads 77....😖🤷🏼‍♂️
