Ratings and Reviews
A narrow-minded review for the rest of us...
This is a very narrow-minded review for those of us who are just weather junkies - we're not flying kites (at least not every day), sailing boats, or otherwise out playing in the wind. We just want the best weather info available, both forecasted and observed.
I've got every remotely serious weather app in the app store and subscribe to the premium services of a couple dozen of them. There's only one thing (in my opinion) that this app does that other available apps don't do better (and it's the only one that has this feature at all): it allows you to stack the parameters of several different models for easy comparison. I've created a custom profile that lets me see the model parameters I'm interested in grouped together for easy comparison: temperature, precip, wind, etc. The other Windy app's maps are far better, LuckGrib is far better at displaying the models and ALL the parameters, etc. I could go on with this sort of comparison for pages, but this app is the only that has the killer feature of letting me position the data in a chart in the order I want it - for that reason alone, I pay the subscription. Their support is also first class and they listen to requests from their users. But the custom profile comparison capability is the reason this app has a place on my home screen, and the reason I think it deserves 5 stars in a very crowded category.

Most thorough and well designed wind/weather app
I use this app for sailing. I have downloaded many wind forecast apps, but beyond dedicated weather routing software none come close to the beauty, design, and depth that windy has.
First, the interface is simple, easy to navigate, customizable, and puts all the data you need right at your finger tips.
Second is the breath of numerical models. In North America you have the trusty GSF, but you also get the benefits of the NAM model and the ICON model. In Europe they have a whole suite of models
available as well. The wind data from all these models can be displayed at the same time so you can use the real world conditions to see which model seems to line up best and thus guide your choices.
Third, local wind related shops can advertise in the app. I used it to find boat rentals near me when I go traveling.
All in all it is a fantastic app. I wish the developer would make a similar platform except that would incorporate other parameters of the various numerical models so I could have this same interface for parameters such as winds aloft or precipitation. It would also be fun to have some of these other parameters on the global view as well.
ABSOLUTE JOKE OF A CO. W/ FALSE PROMISES
The app developers have turned Windy into a greedy, money hungry app. They once used to show wave height and now it is only available if you “pay for pro”. When I originally contacted Windy they told me this was an error by developers and the next update wave height would be included for all. THAT TURNED OUT TO BE A COMPLETE OUTRIGHT LIE. I am not one to say “look at me”...but I commercial fish, I tournament fish...and there are many on Long Island who know who I am. Once upon a time I used to recommend Windy to everyone in my industry. Now...now, out of principle bc you told me lies that it would be included the next update, I will NEVER use your app. I will NEVER recommend your app and I will go as far to tell everyone I know never to trust your lie-filled company. Dont forget who your demographic is. IE salt of the earth fisherman who operate in an oldschool manner and on principle. DONT string us along with lies saying it will be included in the next update. And then follow up w me a week later “oh yea forgot to tell you, youll need to pay for pro to actually get it”. Dont push the old salty dog...

Hello! We apologize that the fix of the swell forecast has taken much longer than we initially expected. The swell forecast is (and has been all this time) available in the free version of the app. Yesterday, we've fixed a bug that caused the swell not to show up on some spots, including yours. We appreciate you recommending us in the past and we really hope that you'd give us another chance! Our user support at firstname.lastname@example.org is open to suggestions and criticism.
