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.

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

Great when it loads. Which is about half the time. Despite keeping up to date on any versions available.

Lousy customer awareness

Used to love this app. Got suckered into updating and now if I want daily forecast I have to pay their annual fee. Pretty sleazy. Permanently deleted it.

Inaccurate information

Wind and wind forecasts are wrong and way off 80% of the time.... do not recommend for aviation purposes or outdoor activity planning I do like the app itself if it were reliable 😐

Accurate & precise wind speed and direction

I have not found the real time wind (point in time or with gusts) til using this app. I drive a big 5th wheel and am always interested in which way the wind is blowing.
