    I have missed SUP paddling sessions ALL WEEK ... this app is so inaccurate all of a sudden ... night b4 says no winds certain hours and next day it is the opposite and all my plans are ruined ... haven't paddled at all ...!! Terrible !

    under IOS 11 the app is not obeying font size requests nor does it appear adjustable, there is plenty of room for bigger text. Wind speed chart is Illegible, map legend is also too small

    This app is never accurate. I consistently check the Annapolis buoy and it is consistently way off the mark by more than five MPH.

    This is the best wind app on the web now. Amazing amount of data for my pleasure trips on the beautiful but can be very hazardous Great Lakes. If you never been to the Northern Great Lakes you haven't lived yet.

    I'm very disappointed with this app, tried to get my money back but Apple refused. I would not recommend this app, wish I could give it zero stars but it won't let me so I give it one star.
  • Not accurate and they're not bothered

    I bought the pro version for sailing because I live a ways from my boat and want to know whether to go. It is just not accurate and even in the moment, it will show current conditions really different than whats happening right now, never mind forecasting. The tide times are like 5 hours off and I emailed the app and they replied saying I was right and they'd fix it but that was 9 months ago and its still like that.
  • I'm glad I found it

    It works for me. I was looking for a wind specific forecast app and this fits the bill. Plus it gives you some regular weather forecast as well. I'm in the northeast and use it for the Finger lakes and Great Lakes.
