Windy user reviews :

I really haven’t used this app enough to make a true 5 star review… but I just wanted to say that I really like the UI. It is very non intrusive while still having a ton of info. For example, the link that took me to make a review here was at the top of the home screen where I could click it if I wanted, not popping up and interrupting what I’m doing every 2 minutes. Nice job devs. I wish more apps were designed like this. If I remember I’ll come back and make a better review later.

  • Hello Kent! Thank you for your interest in the app and your support! We put a lot of effort into making the app 100% enjoyable. If you have any ideas about what should be added to the app to make it more convenient for you, please email us at windy[at]!

I just found the app and I love it already! I can pull up the area’s skew-t log p with one click. The different models can be compared, even has the Euro model forecast. I can’t wait to learn all the different things I can do with this app. I’m nearly done with my meteorology degree and this has by far the most relevant tools for forecasting of all the free apps!

Great ideas, some major issues remain. HRRR, the most useful short term model refreshes so infrequently in the app it is useless. That model is produced every hour and has a very short forecast depth, so getting updates after 15 or 24h as happens often means the data is stale most of the time. It matters because this model is the one to use for last minute make or break decisions : whether to drive to the spot, which spot to go to etc… Other models are good and the compare screen is great.

  • David, thank you for the feedback! And special kudos for mentioning compare screen here, as we’ve been working hard on it! At the moment, HRRR updates 2 times per day in the app. We hope to get more frequent updates soon, our developers are working on it!

I just started using it but I’m already impressed by the user interface. As a former computer programmer, now retired, I fully appreciate a feature rich user interface that is still easy to use and learn! I love the compare graph, which I’ve never seen the like of before. The help screen, which does not shuttle you off to your browser, explains the models. Nice! Customer support is very quick and helpful!

  • Thank you for the feedback, David! We are glad to be useful for you! There is the profile Foil in the app! Do you find it useful? Or could it be that you’d like to add some forecast parameters there? Please share your ideas at windy[at]! Also, we’d be happy to help you customise your profile if you’d like!
