Description

Ever needed to know what the current wind speed and direction is where you are at? Want to know how windy it is outside without having to run out there and throw some grass in the air? Looking to find out when the sunrises and what time to step outside for the perfect sunset? Now you can with the Wind Compass! Wind Compass gets your current location and then updates the current weather conditions based on that location. No fuss, no configuration, just quick weather readouts. Wind Compass Features:: • Select Wind Speed reading by switching between Miles/hour or Kilometers/hour or Knots or Beaufort Wind Force or Meters Per Second • Select Compass Magnetic Declination from True North or Magnetic North • Select Temperature measurement from Fahrenheit or Celsius • Select the Arrow direction of the Wind Indicator from Blowing To or Coming From Weather Forecast Features: • Current Temperature as well as the Estimated Highs and Lows for that day • Sunrise/Sunset times as well as the "First Light" and "Last light" times for that day (Also known as Nautical Twilight Start and End) • 24 Hour Forecast as well as 7 Day Forecast showing: Time, Estimated Temperature, Estimated Wind Speed and Direction and % Chance of precipitation Custom Background Settings You can also change the look of the app by selecting from the many different background types including standard colored backgrounds, as well as backgrounds like a map showing your current location, an overlay showing what your rear camera sees, and even a color gradient that auto adjusts from warm to cool based on the temperature of where you are! Wind Compass uses the Forecast.io Weather data to provide accurate conditions where you are. Just open the app, let it update, and there you go. Forecast.io uses many sources and creates as accurate of a forecast as possible for your location. As an added bonus, Wind Compass shows you which way is North so if you are inside or turned around, you can always know which way is north, along with the current wind direction. If you have any issues with Wind Compass please email contact@maplemedia.io to quickly get the issue resolved. You can also submit a feature request or bug report right from inside the settings menu. *NOTE* Compass functionality within the app requires physical compass functionality built in. iPods can still get direction info but the compass will not update real time. *NOTE* Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Reads clipboard...

Update: too bad W/C predates the iOS 14 App Store “Privacy Policy”... besides pasting a copy the clipboard contents on startup, would interesting to know what else it’s poking around in on the phone... iOS 14 reports “Wind Compass pasted from Messages”... this happens each time the app is started.... if the clipboard is empty then it does nothing but if the clipboard contains data Wind Compass “pastes” it... why would Wind Compass paste from the clipboard upon starting and what is it doing with the pasted data!?! Wind Compass is a weather aggregator... it aggregates data from Dark Sky or other providers... it really has no business pasting around your iOS clipboard... Bad enough people paid for lifetime service and didn’t get it but this clipboard business lifts that concern to another level... You really might want to avoid this app in favor of another... Btw: Wind Compass is the only app on this device that behaves like this...

Too few monitoring stations

1
The closest wind monitoring station is over 20 miles away. The app shows 12 mph winds gusting to 20 mph, but not one drop of winds where I’m at. Perhaps if I were at that city where it’s showing the wind measurement, it might be more accurate. But for hunting, or firefighters in the forest, or for sailing on the lake, it’s USELESS !!!

Adding location

2
This is a good app except for adding location. Adding location is inoperable without upgrading to premium

So far so good

I’ve only had the app for a short time, that said it appears to be very accurate and dependable. I love the layout, it’s simple and easy to navigate. I hope the developer can add barometric pressure in the future.

Could be better

Simple- GREAT!!! But you can NOT zoom in or out on the map Crazy - only shows where you are and no relationship as to 5 or 500 miles

My preferred weather app.

5
I’ve been happily using the free version for at least 2, maybe 3 years now. The first couple months I only used it to check the wind speed, but eventualy I found myself using this instead of the handful of other weather apps I downloaded. It’s far from the fanciest app and while I do miss the animated weather feature some apps have, I got tired of my phone showing rain/snow/sun when it wasn’t accurate. This app hasn’t disappointed or mislead me once.

Not accurate

Not accurate. Always reads about 10 degrees less wind than all my other apps.

This app is EXCELLENT. It is better than Weather Channel, except for Ari Sarsalari. Really. Get it. You won’t regret it.
