Pros and cons of Windfinder Pro app for iPhone and iPad

Windfinder Pro app good for

I am a experienced sailor and I use this app all the time. I think it is a great way to keep track of your favourite conditions no matter what activities that you like.
Great App! Better than the competition for sure as it has wave height where available.
Great app. Will upgrade to a 5 star when they have an update for iPad
Windfinder totally succeeds in fast wind and weather information. Live and forecast as precise as it can be. I especially like the speed of the app.

I usually dont bother with feedback, but.... This is the "must have" app for sailors. Worth every penny!!!

Some bad moments

The GUI isnt Apple iOS style. It is now complex. Too many information. Please reduce. Focus. Delete complexity. This is based on a programmers mind. Not user friendly.
Downloaded Windfinder Pro yesterday but it would not run on my iTouch. The app developer tells me its an iTunes problem. Probably true, but still does not run.
They charge per month for the alerts in the pro version, which is not the impression they give you before you download. Pro version not worth the money. Only difference is there are no ads and there is a superforecast (I dont know what it is based on cause the actual wind does not come close to the superforecast)
The only reason I upgraded to Pro was for the advertised Alerts which are not available in the Pro Version anymore!!! Thanks for nothing! Would give 0 Stars if I could
Save your money I live in Vancouver and this app is way off all the time.
If youre using this for sailing, be warned! The wind speeds are dangerously inaccurate. Regularly predicted to be significantly lower than reality. There is a big difference between a predicted 15k wind - max - and a 25k true with 35k gusts when sailing!

Usually Windfinder Pro iOS app used & searched for

windfinder, windfinder pro, wind finder, and other. So, download free Windfinder Pro .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
