About AUSWinds

AUSWind is an application designed for people who care what the wind is doing. Whether you are into sailing, windsurfing, fishing, firefighting or even riding a bike having up to date information on what the current wind conditions are.

This app utilises the Australian Bureau of Meteorology observation information to provide both a list and a map of the current conditions for each capital city and each state.

The application provides one state/city at a time, but to change state/city just tap on the title on the list page. If you want your information updated then pull the list down, or go into settings and have an automatic update set up.

Food to have all wind on a map, but too clunky. Want to see values not just arrows i have to press. Always downloading data.

Great for fishing or any water sport

As a guide to safe seafaring this app wont help boaters with no data. Nice satellite photo but thats it no point no use.App makers should check their rubbish first before wasting people's time.

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.
