Description

The app combines highly accurate weather forecast for your location with a 3D map showing development of weather in a broader area in a very interesting way. This allows you to see where precipitation is going to come from or where the wind is blowing from. The uniqueness of the app comes from the amount of data displayed. Forecast of weather, precipitation, wind, cloud cover, atmospheric pressure, snow cover and other meteorological data for different altitudes is available for the whole world. WIND ANIMATION The Ventusky application solves weather displaying in an interesting way. Wind is displayed using streamlines which clearly portray the continuous development of weather. Airflow on Earth is always in motion and the streamlines depict this motion in an amazing way. This makes the interconnection of all atmospheric phenomena obvious. WEATHER FORECAST Weather forecast for the first three days is available in the app in one-hour steps. For other days, it’s available in three-hour steps. Users can also look up sunrise and sunrise times in a given place or air quality. WEATHER MODELS Thanks to the Ventusky application, visitors get data directly from the numerical models that, just a few years ago, were used solely by meteorologists. The app collects data from the most accurate numerical models. Besides the well-known data from the American GFS and HRRR models, it also displays data from the Canadian GEM model and the German ICON model, which is unique thanks to its high resolution for the whole world. Two models, EURAD and USRAD, are based on current radar and satellite readings. These models are able to show precisely current precipitation in US and Europe. WEATHER FRONTS You can also display weather fronts. We have created a neural network that predicts the positions of cold, warm, occluded, and stationary fronts based on data from weather models. This algorithm is unique, and we are the first on the world who makes global fronts forecast available to users.

  • Consistently inaccurate

    Maybe it’s an anomaly for my area but the temps are off between 5 and 10 degrees everyday.
  • Far better than Apple's Weather app/source

    Apple's Weather app is often wrong (especially about rain), and Ventusky has become my source of truth. Not sure why there is such a difference. It's 2022.

  • Terrible design

    By I already have a nickname
    I can’t see a full day at a glance. I have to swipe back and forth to see 12am to 12pm. The map is far too large by default. The map is interesting occasionally but I want to see when rain is coming throughout the day and what the temp will be for the 12 hour period. The writing is microscopic. The symbol for cloudy is blue, as if it’s going to rain. The symbol for rain is the same blue cloud with a tiny dot (1-3 of them). At a glance it is useless.
  • Colors on wave height

    Love the app. Use it all the time to safely predict weather conditions. One item of feedback would be to allow user to change the color of font on wave height. The black font with a grey background is hard to see in sunlight on iPhone. Suggest changing the font to white or background to something lighter. Thanks.
  • Paid for the app but it never showed up

    I paid for this app, but it never showed up on my iPad. Very disappointing. Seems like it would be a great thing to have. I hit app support, but of course nothing came up -just the map. Just more time and money wasted. It would seem if you were going to do an app you would make sure that your users could actually download it or contact you in the case of glitches.
  • Like it but needs a bit more work on the UX

    Been using it for a day now and feels pretty nice. Would appreciate a little more work in the UX for the widget and forecast section. Feels a little too cluttered for now. Maybe add a „edit screen“ option where I can deselect parts (ie Moon/sun Phase or what ever those green bars are) to customize my view. Also another widget with 3hrs forecast PLUS the next 3 days would be a killer feature. (Similar to the weather channel app widget, that started to become so bad after ibm bought it) Smaller icons, more whitespace would be my recommendation. Props though for the animation! Make that a screensaver for macOS! This has been my first paid download for a couple of years. Congrats again.
  • Just got this app

    Just downloaded this app from a recommendation of a neighbor, all I see is little wind directions but how do I tell precipitation forecast? I’m not seeing clouds or colors,Just because I’m not familiar with this app yet. Could someone give me a little insight? Thanks so much!
