Great Application for sailors !!
After a three years of constant use, I'm quite satisfied with the features of this app. However, I'd like to see the following capabilities implemented: 1. User should have capabilitity to (a) interchange the order of the graphs, for example, wind speed followed by atmospheric pressure, or 2. User should have capabilitity to superimpose graphs. For example, wind speed over atm pressure. 3. Provide the option to show a graph showing the average of the two graphs. ie, the midpoint between the two graphs. 4. Provide user graph entries on the chart to plot actual observations to compare the merits of the various app's graphs. User can save screen shots
Bait and Switch
I have used this apps for a couple of years. This year I upgraded to basic as we are cruising up the inside passage to Alaska. The basic package says it includes 1km resolution forecast maps; 9 saved forecast locations; wave, rain, cloud, isobar maps; wind observations; and forecast alerts. I don’t get most of that. After emailing the help desk they told me I only get one 1km resolution map, as in 1 and never another and I don’t get wave maps. Those are the only reasons I upgraded. There are several other apps that will give you the information they are giving for free. Skip if you want more detail or want to deal with an honest company. If I could post a picture of what they tell is included I would.
I’m a Sternman on a commercial lobster vessel; we have 800 traps 5-10 miles outside. This app has been extremely useful for me for planning purposes. Also, their upgrade options are great, and definitely worth the short money as far as I’m concerned. - Also, I had a simple question about one of the app’s features that I emailed to their support center for clarity, and got an RSVP the same day. Hope this helps!
Perfect app with all the information presented in whatever you think is the best possible way it is. Takes a little time to understand the different models and it is disconcerting that at times they disagree so much but, it's all the information and the uncertainty in the models should tell you the uncertainty in the production. Love the app. Have used it in the Mediterranean Caribbean Pacific in San Francisco bay area and seems very good.
Love this App!
Predict Wind has helped make our travels throughout the Med, the Caribbean, Bahamas, and East Coast for the past 2.5 years a safer and unforgettable experience. It is my go to for all the weather and route planning. Combined with Iridium Go! we can make good decisions regarding departures and routes. I've never used an app that was so efficient and helpful. The bonus is the PW team continues to update and improve. Their team is professional, courteous, and they always take the time to help you out if you need it. Their customer service is second to none. After all the weather apps I've downloaded this is by far the most accurate and thorough weather app. If there were 6 stars I'd give it that as my rating.

Very helpful weather planning
I’m a Captain on motor yachts and have my own sailboat, This program is easy to use and to see how the “predicted” weather forecasts for winds & sea conditions will effect my motoring or sailing. The forecast here is only as good as the data models are accurate. I’ve used this program from local waters in New England up to Maine and Florida to the Caribbean and it’s been very helpful.
Not worth the money :(
I spent the $30 and tried so hard to like this app, but it’s just not accurate. I get better wind predictions from the native iPhone Weather app. Aside from not being able to set basic map defaults and the complete lack of miles per hour, the twelve (or longer!) hour delay times for updates on windspeed...this thing wouldn’t even be worth one dollar. Apparently you get more features if you spend an additional $60, but I can already see that’s not worth it, either. Live and learn, I suppose.
Powerful Knowledge in a Single Site
Have an Island cottage requiring private boat access. Information on PredictWind is very accurate and timely. Tells me where to position my boat most safely for mooring, and whether planned boat trip will be pleasant, or a bit ‘hairy ‘. Meteorologists and computer modelers on PredictWind are top tier.
The App itself is another piece of fairly good information for offshore weather, not great for costal due to local land influences. However, the administrative billing errors are ubiquitous and continual. Over the course of my four year circumnavigation I have only had 1 instance where I got the service I paid for. Tech support quality has declined noticeably as Predicted Wind’s popularity has increased. I’m not sure why they can’t get it straight, but it does seem to be beyond their capabilities. So, weather info OK, frustrating time spent, very bad.
The free version gives you predictions with 8 km spatial resolution. Good enough for me to decide when to go paddleboarding for two hours or so. User interface completely intuitively. Heard of a public ocean weather service that even they make use of the predictWind forecasts.
I use several programs and at the end of day this seems most accurate to actual conditions
Accuracy is Iffy
Over the last few months, it seems that this app has lost a lot of its accuracy. Not a big fan of how it bunches up the times (5-9,10-3 etc) as I prefer hour by hour. I also don’t like how it says 3-19kts or 5-22kts. That doesn’t help me in the least, as the difference between 5 and 22kts is the difference of whether I go out or not. Used to like this app, but I think I’ll stick with WindFinder and SailFlow/Windy.
This app is uncanny in its ability to predict wind and thereby waves. We recently had to run 1100 miles up the Pacific coast of Mexico in 5 days. This app allowed us to run a course with little wind improving our transit time. Highly recommend!
I like that I can switch between graphics and table. Being able to see all 4 model predictions at the same time is very helpful.
Wanted an app for wind info in my area ... there are no close landmarks for wind on this app where many of us SUP ! unlike pro wind app ... you must be a boat owner to understand anything on the app and there are no settings to navigate customizing one change in this app .. happy to delete ... paddlers need hour to hour times this starts at 10 am ? Can’t make that out either lol argggg
