Great for long distance sailing I've used this app for 12 months now and feel it's time for a review. Planning multiple sailing trips of 400 plus miles, I've found Predictwind to be consistently more accurate than other apps using GFS only as the source. More recently, sailing from Bonaire to Puerto Rico, the weather window provided by Predictwind was 24 hours ahead of GFS. We departed based on Predictwind and had a wonderful sail. The yachts that left the next day experienced terrible conditions, as one sailor said, worse than crossing the Atlantic. Not always accurate, but the best out there.

Forecasts are most accurate I've found. However I'm not that fond of the presentation formats, and it's a pain that the 1 day forecast is really only a few hours at certain times of day. Also kind of buggy on my S5, some screens won't display.

7 day trial This app may be a great one. Fact that your 7 day trial is so limited. If you desire to see most of the features you will need to purchase for a minimum of 1 month. 7 day trial should unlock more.

Good for predicting wet her and avoiding crashing your plane The forecasts are a little conservative but useful
