Great on iPhone 8, issues dragging the map on the 11

I loved this app so much! Having lived in 2 locations that are frequented by hurricanes, Florida & Coastal North Carolina, this app is a MUST during hurricane season. I used it all the time on my iPhone 8 with no issues. But I just got the iPhone 11, and noticed one issue I never had on the iPhone 8. And seeing no other reviews describing this same issue (the iPhone 11 has only been out now for 4 days), I felt I should report it just in case others have the same issue, and so maybe a fix can occur. I have tried restarting my phone and reinstalling the app, but problem persists.
The issue happens when you try to drag the map to look at other locations. Instead of the animated map moving to reveal more of the map, it zooms in. Making it impossible to look at other locations, other than the default location. I was able to move it only a little but it was a battle getting it to respond at al and would still only do that while simultaneously zooming in.

If I am doing something wrong, please let me know! But I still say it’s been the best visual weather app out there! And I hope this problem goes away soon! I will change my rating to 5 stars if I can get it to work again.

Thank you for your feedback. We know about this issue and the reason is iOS 13. Right now we are still working on this problem. Everything should be correct on iOS 13.1. Please follow up this link https://community.windy.com/topic/9672/several-issues-with-upgrade-to-ios-13/3
Thank you for your patience. Barbora

The best weather app out there

I was a huge fan of Storm from WeatherUnderground and hadn't checked out the other options recently, but when The Weather Channel killed Storm and replaced it with a mediocre weather channel version I had a look at the other options and was very happy to find Windy. It's so much much better than the others, let me count (a few of) the ways: You can pick your forecast model! And then compare the different models to see where they differ! That to me is a game changer. The timeline along the bottom is so great to see how pressure and fronts will move - I feel like I've learned a lot just by using the app. The many layer options are great - set it for what you want to see and don't be distracted by what you don't. And of course the wind animation options make for a visually appealing interface. Seeing how the different altitude winds are moving and changing is so useful and interesting. I'd gladly pay money for this app, there are just so many great things to say about it. And if all you want is a sun, a cloud, or an umbrella for where you live that's there for you too. I was bummed when Storm was killed off but am so happy to have found this great app.

Access to the models professionals use

Also Can compare them, and probably learn a lot more too if you have less formal meteorological training. Having more access to well formatted data instead of it being fed to you and summarized as in other apps is important especially to those who depend heavily on weather such as myself occasionally working in the marine industry on Great Lakes and outdoor activities or professions. It’s important to understand that models do not always get it perfect so being able to compare them for discrepancy and integrate into your own local knowledge is crucial on the water or anywhere really when serious mission critical planning or at least some decent foresight is required. This app allows you to do that. I’d say this app is the main thing to have and then some shortcuts for a few NOAA pages allowing you to get some of the same information in a low bandwidth format when service is poor … other than Sirius nav weather on an MFD for when there is zero cell coverage… this is what you need to be as confident as anyone can be about completing dangerous marine work on a Great Lake like superior.

Thank you so much for your positive review! We're glad to hear that you find the paid version of our app worth it. Ondra from Windy
