MUST HAVE App for KITESURFERS and others out on the water!!! This is THE ONLY app that uses Official Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) data to indicate wind strength and direction, which is superimposed onto Google Maps at each of the Official BOM wind towers across Australia! BOM is the ONLY reliable information in Australia, as websites like seabreeze, willy weather, and others do not give you accurate information - instead they make their own incorrect calculations (eg Seabreeze gives a live weather reading for Cronulla, but there are NO wind towers there, so it cannot be trusted; the nearest ones are Watamolla and Kurnell - if you tried this App, you'd know this). Most importantly, this app is useful for Off-shore wind days, so that you can 'see what's coming' wind-wise, and avoid getting caught out on the water when there are dangerous gusts coming from across the state. Seabreeze FAILS to give you this information. I rate this as 5 stars, but also BEG the developer: Please update to allow custom wind arrow colors on the map (red - high wind - is actually 'green' in my world - "game on" for kitesurfing), and to set up custom wind alerts, and to fix the occasional Force Close / Crashing. Will PAY! Has not been updated for quite sometime.
