PredictWind — Marine Forecasts Positive Reviews
Bait and SwitchI 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..Version: 3.8.3
Don’t put your money on itThis weather app has been a ride, it looks nice and fancy with all kinds of features and stuff and boy do you want to believe it. Couple of weeks ago I was going to get the paid version and then I saw the price so I thought let me wait a little bit longer.
Well, I’m really happy I did.
They have been wrong a a good bunch of times, but it always comes down to “its weather” anyways.
Today I write this review because I took this App “to the bank” literally. this is the complete opposite of what they said it was going to be and what an embarrassing mistake. This weather app just screwed up my bosses, golf trip..Version: 4.9.6
Ultimately pretty darn goodWe fought for about 18 months with the Predict Wind Offshore App. First with windows 8, then windows 10. Eventually, thanks to determination on our end, and good customer service, we got it going correctly.
The program ( Predict Wind ) is great, we love the departure planning feature. The learning curve is a little painful, just lots of non intuitive steps you have to fumble thru till you get the hang of it, but well worth it.
Now, it's one of our essential planning tools..Version: 3.6.0
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.Version: 3.5.2
Always use for fishing, in my small boat on sometimes big waterI fish onshore in Massachusetts, mostly tidal rivers, but occasionally out into Buzzards Bay, in a 16' aluminum boat, 30HP. The bay is notorious for kicking up in a hurry and and is funnel shaped from the SW, concentrating winds from that direction. I've gotten into trouble on the bay in years past, enough that I bought an offshore PFD. I now rely on PredictWind to tell me when its stupid for me to go out..Version: 4.9.3
User friendlyI’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!.Version: 3.7.1
Excellent program!Are use this program all the time for fishing and find it excellent. Sometimes the accuracy is just uncanny… Calling the start of wind practically to the minute.
I preferred the old format slightly, which showed the time of day continuously in a legible location. The time of day will now disappear occasionally, and be more difficult to see.
All in all, I would recommend this program highly..Version: 4.9.6
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.
PerfectPerfect 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..Version: 3.5.2
More and more inclusive….I am an avid user of predict wind and happy with all their recent improvements. Routing does work and is useful particularly once you learn how to put suggested trajectories in context rather than following blindly. I can’t wait for them to blend the current into their predictions..Version: 4.9.6
Enjoying predict wind.I am enjoying predict wind. It’s not always right, but most of time It is. I sail a boat and also fly RC planes within 12 miles of each Location. I feel like that the app is more accurate on the lake with wide open expenses for the breeze to blow. Compared to up in the Meadows between the mountains where we Fly very small finicky planes..Version: 4.8.5
An app that does what you expectI have been using this app all summer on Lake Mi and love it. I have only been using the free version but even that has sone serious power. The app is pretty self explanatory and is easy to navigate. This app just does what you expect and is easy to use..Version: 4.9.6
Information for self, locator info for others.I’ve crewed on two boats that subscribed to Predict Wind. The sailboat enjoyed the point to point plotting features and GPS tracking for his friends. I like the multiple layers of info graphed out and easy to read. The 5 day forecast..Version: 4.9.6
Easy. Accurate.Just found this app at the end of summer here in Michigan, USA. So I have just used it a few months. I am just a casual dingy sailor, but this app has been very accurate, and helpful in choosing when to sail and when to stay home. Easy to learn and use..Version: 4.7.0
Consistently accurateI keep a sailboat at a lake about an hour from my home in Kansas. This app has been really consistent in its prediction of the wind and that makes weekend plan making a lot easier! Loving this app so far. Been using it for three or four months, runs really well on iPhone 11..Version: 3.9.6
Powerful Knowledge in a Single SiteHave 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..Version: 3.9.0
Very helpful weather planningI’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..Version: 3.7.1
Quite usefulThe 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..Version: 3.8.2

Sailing channel SV Dawn HuntersThis program is excellent and a real life tool required while voyaging or even a day sail. Just rode out 27 knot sustained with 35 knot gusts at anchor. Predict Wind forecast was dead on so our preparations last night kept us safe. Thank you Predict Wind.

Predict windThe forecast is great. It is seldom wrong. As a sailer I use this app every week end. It proved that I can depend on it. The forecast is fairly accurate even though it’s several hrs behind. I used when racing or occasional small cruise. Overall, it’s a great app.

Great appVery useful.Version: 4.2.1
Takes the guess work out of weather forecastingSo very versatile. Plenty of options for checking the wind forecast. From a brief description to a coloured map you can experience the wind forecast accurately. Impressive to see how the colours change as the wind direction changes. Light winds to hurricane strength. Just tap on a location and the forecast appears. Thumbs up!.Version: 3.9.5
