For newbies and pros. I am a newbie and want to learn, so I started out with the wind speed, of course, to determine if I am safe to fly. The manual recommends 10mph or greater stay on the ground.
Plugin developers, stay alert. We are refactoring Windy.com client codes to typescript!
Windy.com introduces Apple Watch app
Windy.com has already more than 8 developers and I, personally, should be just doing CEO job. But I could not resist the temptation. Few month ago, I have learned SwiftUI, and personally programmed Windy.com app for Apple Watch (not bad for being 47y old Internet veteran).
I have put there goodies, that should be on your wrist:
- Compass with forecast wind rose
- METARs, with super handy "notify me on update" button
As soon as we will see some first user feedback @SimonUrbanek (who overtook my iOS programming job) is willing put more functionality to it.
So enjoy Windy.com on Apple Watch and let us know how do you like it.
A note for Android users:
As much as I try hard, I do not know, or see, anyone wearing Android watch. A lot of my friends have some kind of sport tracking (Gramin, Coros etc) smart watch. But not a single Android watch out there.
Recent iOS widget problems (iOS14+, Windy 29.2+)
Although we have have not encountered problems with Windy Widget on any of our testing devices, we consider your Widget complains very seriously.
In Windy Widget we have discontinued old technology, that was used by our widget (Apple prohibits new apps to use its old technology UIkit) and replaced it with new technology Swift UI as was requested by Apple.
It seems to us, that this is quite novelty and a lot of thing still does not work. Some issue can be our own BUGs, some issues are part of iOS BUGs. iOS API is also changing rapidly from version to version, which makes things more complicated.
If we are unable to replicate the bug we have a very hard task to fix these widget issues. But anyway @SimonUrbanek our iOS guru is working hard to make the widget great again :-)
Please be patient
