I've been using windy for a few months now, mostly to plan alpine climbs & backcountry skiing. Overall, its been the best weather app I've used. The best feature is the ability to compare forecasts to understand what can happen. A few thoughts on improvements that would make it even more useful:
- Easy forecast for current location - 'my location' doesn't show up when I search, or as the default location when I click on an ios widget to open the app.
- Customize forecast comparison/forecast table at the bottom - It would be awesome to see freezing level, cloud cover, etc... as right now to see those data points you have to (at least I think) iterate through the visual player. Or maybe have a gsheet plugin where we could build a live pivot table?
- Customize accumulated rain and snowfall timespan - i.e. allow entry of a start and end datetime to see accumulations. Its also not clear when the x day forecast accumulation starts and ends.
- Hobbyist api license - no support, limited calls - maybe include in premium 20 api calls per day? I'd love to build a dashboard/summary for a few of my go to areas
