Better Data Means Better Forecasts Saildrone’s mission is to collect and share more data about the planet. The oceans cover more than 70% of Earth’s surface and drive weather, regulate temperature, and ultimately support life on Earth. Much of the weather we experience on land starts in the oceans, so we believe weather forecasting should start in the oceans, too. Our global fleet of saildrones continuously sails the world’s oceans collecting atmospheric and oceanographic data. These expeditions generate unmatched, proprietary high-resolution data sets that are used by scientists at the world’s leading science organizations to better understand air-sea interactions and improve long-range weather forecasting and prediction of extreme weather events. We invite you to join our mission! Download Saildrone Forecast now. Some icons by Icons8.
Can no longer receive weather forecasts. App was working well but now is unusable due to no data showing in forecasts for any pint entered. Time for a new app.
The app hasn’t worked the last 3 days. There are circles “working” but weather and temperature never populates. The “send feedback” link doesn’t work either so this appears to be the only way to send feedback or get help. When it works I love this app.
We travel A LOT and this app sure has saved us on getting off the road quick enough when pulling our RV! Thanks for the accurate information at a touch of a finger!
Easy to use
Best weather app, especially for SF Bay Area for water conditions
The main reason to use this app in the SF Bay Area is its tidal current model. It has better precision and accuracy than any other tide chart I know of. However, the tidal current map layer has been failing to load lately, rendering the app useless.
This app used to be great, but the tidal currents for the bay suddenly stopped working, and when I tried to access help, I was taken to a broken zen desk link, and the separate “send feedback” button also did nothing. Considering this is an app I pay a subscription for, that’s very disappointing.
Love this app, but after updating to iPad OS 14, app crashes as it tries to open. Seems to work fine on iPhone. Please fix! Update: works fine on iOS 16. Thanks!
Does not work more often than it does. Their support and FAQ page takes you to an expired link. “Send feedback” literally does not work. What gives, Saildrone?
It is all broken. Has development stopped?
