iPhone/iPad Weather Apps
 
Are there any good Apps out there for sailing weather?

jackdale 12-21-2010 01:22 PM

I use the browser to access weather on an Android:
- Environment Canada
- NOAA weatherfax
- Sailflow
- etc..

A grib file reader would be cool.

Yes, a grib Data reader would definitely be nice!

I just found a few apps:
buoyweather maritime app
boatingweatherapp or
weather365 yachting app

Do you guys have any experience with those?

I have been quite enamored lately with Weatherbug and its lightning alert.

I use Weatherbug all the time.

I sail inland lakes. I use The Weather Channel (decent for 10-day forecasts), RadarUS+ (great for different radar views), and WindAlert (best for viewing current wind conditions at different stations, and great for predicting hourly wind speeds).

+1 on RadarUS+

I use SailFlow. It's free, relatively easy to use, and very accurate.

We use an iPhone app named Dark Sky. It is not really a forecast site... it detects your location and will give a 1-hour preciptation look-ahead (with animated radar). It is designed for boaters, golfers, etc. to get an idea of what is coming your way within the hour (and to get a sense if weather you may see in the distance will hit or miss you).

We have found it to be highly accurate and useful... very much worth its $3 (I think) price.
