The Best Weather App for Your Smartphone

WINDY

If you’re into nifty visualizations and precise data then this is a good app to try. Windy offers GFS data or other local parameters available from the North American Mesoscale Forecast System. The focus of this app is a compass-like visual of wind direction and speed in the location selected.

Windy (also known as Windyty) is an extraordinary tool for weather forecast visualization. This fast, intuitive, detailed and most accurate weather app is trusted by professional pilots, paragliders, skydivers, kiters, surfers, boaters, fishermen, storm chasers and weather geeks, and even by governments, army staffs and rescue teams.

Pros

  • Novel compass type view with precise wind speed and direction over time
  • Easy access to favorite spots plus suggestions on nearby locations

Cons

  • Interesting chat option, but the thread was not recent and therefore it was not very valuable
  • The compass view wasn’t as easy to use as the graph views used by other apps

Whether you are tracking a tropical storm or potential severe weather, planning a trip, pursuing your favorite outdoor sport, or you just need to know if it will rain this weekend, Windy provides you with the most up-to-date weather forecast around.

The uniqueness of Windy lies in the fact that it brings you better quality information than the other weather apps’ pro-features, while our product is absolutely free and even without ads.

Powerful, smooth and fluid presentation makes weather forecasting a real pleasure!
