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....😖🤷🏼‍♂️

Great app
I use a few apps to get an average on how the wind might be. As a kayak fisherman, wind can really be my enemy, especially when I'm a few miles offshore and I'm battling the elements. This site has been good to me and I appreciate the work put into it that helps keep me safe. Of course, good judgement helps a lot too butimnot known for making the best decisions so thank you Windfinder for keeping me alive to pay my taxes and child support another year!

I deff appreciate this app for wind when i fish here in NJ . This app helps me when trying to make plans for my future fishing trips , It’s not easy to predict mother natures winds by days. As far as i’m concerned it’s the most reliable. This app gives you ball park mph but direction seems to be close most always ! God Bless and Tight lines to all us that enjoy fishing AMEN!!!!! Enjoy life everyday and always think positive let the negative be gone !!!!!

Better than most
This app provides actual maps of wind direction including changes that occur near the coast and throughout the state. It is always difficult to determine beach conditions, when most weather apps give a direction only. This app shows the actual direction on a map. I can tell, if there will be a sea breeze or land breeze during the day. There may be a breeze out of the south, but the nuances along the coast are different depending on the actual location. First app I check for expected wind direction.

Everything you need to plan a sail one place
Just fantastic to have wind, waves, weather and most importantly TIDE all on a single line in hourly format. I set favorites at the Golden Gate, Angle Island and my home base a in Pt Richmond and I get a picture of wind tide and current by swiping through those three. Adds a huge element of confidence and safety to sailing and paddling on the Bay. Simply the best app for Bay Area sailors and boaters. I support the apps I use that just plain work. Windfinder got my contribution.

Love this app pretty accurate even if i go fishing 30 miles south of my home town its comforting to know the temperature & wind direction of the location i choose to fish and what time intervals these winds & temperatures will come to my area . I work most of the time thing i like about this app i can now plan my fishing trip ahead of time . I got this app from a local farmer best thing I’ve ever seen . Used by all the farmers in my area

There have been many times where I have checked the weather before going out to hunt and it has looked good, only to find that the wind makes it miserable once you get out there. Windfinder’s accuracy eliminates that and allows you to come up with a strategy to find success in less than ideal weather.

Easily the best weather predictor app out there
I’ve been using the Windfinder website for years and just switched to the app. Not only is it smoother but it’s a little simpler. Highly recommended for surfers, boaters, outdoor adventurists, you name it. And best part is it’s 100% free without an annoying pop up ad thrown in your face every 30 seconds.

Amazing App
I am a sailor and have traveled by boat up and down the East Coast of the US and throughout the Bahamas. Windfinder is my go to app for knowing wind direction and velocity today and the upcoming days. I had to make the crossing recently from Ft Lauderdale to Bimini in the Bahamas. I relied on Windfinder to forecast the date, time and departure point for making the crossing. Thank you Windfinder for incredibly reliable info!

Best Wind App
Pretty easy to use once you figure it out. I found this while my husband and I were team trucking. It is by far the most accurate!!! So many weather apps ignore wind speed or are grossly underestimated. This app might have saved our lives helping us to decide to shut down and wait. Thank you!

Tide info is spot on
The tide info that is included on the Windfinder page is very accurate for the Florida keys. It differs up to two hours from other apps such as Tides Near Me but it is spot on Accurate. The wind prediction is as good as any app but , remember it is only a guess. I always go to this app because of the tide info available and its accuracy

Not Accurate
As a full-time boater, I need reliable weather reports. Compared to the Weather Channel and local TV weather, Windfinders always seems to forecast much higher winds than the others. They change their reports frequently from one extreme to the other...and neither report was even that accurate. Windfinders is about 50% reliable.

Sailing Plans
We were planning a sailing day at Lake Pleasant and I checked predict wind which said 1 to 10 kn. On arrival the wind was blowing probably 20 kn. I spoke with the Go sail Arizona captain and he suggested this app which was accurately describing the present wind and predicted the wind changes through the day. It’s nice to be able to make plans to sail and arrive with good sailing conditions.

AlwYs use it before we take the boat out. And even before we hit the woods.
I think this app is very handy. Check it ,always before we put the boat in, to get an idea of what the lake might be. And before hunting, this gives you a handle on which way the wind is blowing. I like it.

For all intents and purposes it’s the best
The usability/functionality is unparalleled. I can hop between locations with ease. I do wish it was updated, however, more often. At least by the hour. I think it updates every six hours which can prove to match up with current conditions.

Great for work and play.
Used app for work on wind turbines, kite boarding and sailing. The visual map with arrows as well as being to switch to standard map is an excellent feature. Showing the locations of the observation points is also great especially on lakes where wind can “jump” over the tree line and sensor.

Great App & Team
I use this app to monitor local winds for foiling. I like being able to set up future alerts so I don’t have to constantly check the app. And the dev team quickly responded added a spot for me when it wasn’t on the map. Y’all rock!!!

Great app for Boaters
In south Florida, all the weather stations we had are out of commission as NOAA doesnt have the budget to repair or restore a major safety tool for mariners 😩 Thankfully we have Windfinder to acquire this critical information to plan our trips on the water. A lot of useful & valuable info to utilize. Thanks!

Easy and Accurate
It is nice to see whether and wind, more than seven days out, Windfinder goes 10 days. Obviously no weather predictor will be super accurate at 10 days, but Windfinder is pretty darn close. Windy only goes seven days, Unless you upgrade to pro.

Very good App!
I’m very much enjoying this weather app! As a man who works outside, this gives me details that others will not. The wind charts plus tidewater information is awesome to know as a person who lives near the coast. 5 stars and my “Go to” weather app on my phone.

Helpful for gauging Go/No Go on fishing.
I like this app because it tells me what is happening pretty much right where I am heading to fish. I check it often and gauge if I am going out or not. Conditions inshore might be one thing but offshore 30 miles out it’s another. I am enjoying this app very much.

I use this app every day I go clamming I need it for tides and wind. North Jersey I use it for wind in the Raritan Bay. South Jersey I use it in Stone Harbor for tides. When I go to Florida I use it down there too for fishing swimming and boating I find it to be the best one it works for me commercial fisherman Gary

Great service
I use it on fresh and saltwater bodies. Most accurate hour to hour wind reports and the on the water body directional bars are super helpful. Often the wind curves over water and your generic forecasts do not take it into account I swear by it

Totally inaccurate
I’ve been using WF for about 6 months. Of those 6 months, we didn’t do several trips to our offshore islands because it said it would be 20+ knots. Come to find out, when it was “20+” it was really only 4kts at the weather stations on the island. Not impressed, it’s been inaccurate way more than it’s been accurate. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’ll trust NOAA more than this app now. You want an accurate app, try Windy (the online one, not the blue one, that one is just as bad!)

I live in SunnySide Florida now since 1993, and always was a “victim “ of the Un-known Weather God Thor. So, last time i got rained out and blown around on the Gulf, our neighbor Sprinkler Mike was teasing me, about this app, and he installed it on my cellphone. Now i am smarter than a 5th Grader

Fish about 150 days a year and constantly reviewing wind directions and speeds to affect my day on the lake. With this resource my time is maximized and I don’t go out into situations that aren’t productive. Which in turn means I catch more fish.

Great app to stay attuned to the wind changes during the day. It makes planning activities that require wind or Are better without wind much easier/ more accurate and those activities are consequently much more enjoyable.

Love Windfinder for its informative weather content. Working on the water, it’s important to know the weather, wind speed and direction. This app provides that content on a semi hourly basis throughout the day as well as showing future forecasts.

I like to use it for updated information, but I have found that the information is not always accurate. The forecasts are sometimes way off, but I don’t know how easy it is to forecast wind speed.

Easy to use; just got better
It’s an easy, intuitive interface. The most recent update in March 2018 allows you to see wind direction arrows overlying the map. I have found the predictions pretty reliable, but it tends to underestimate windspeed by 1-3 mph.

My primary use for Windfinder is for wind forecast for sailing on an inland lake. Though periodically check other apps I haven’t found anything that beats Windfinder. Easy to use, good interface, accurate, and quick. It would be nice to see a charting view in addition to the tabular view.

Thus far, my bible of when to blow off work and go flying! Very, but not 100% accurate in all forecasts, but after you get into the rhythm of the forecast as compared to your 1st hand observations, it's easy to interpret the data and proceed accordingly.
