RE: New mobile version is here, how do you like it?
@ivo Dear Ivo... I preferred the original format. I am a professional mariner, who has sung your praises for the accuracy and useability of Windyty. It’s main value to me is the wind (speed & direction) and waves (height & direction) forecasting format, where I could use the bottom slider to advance the forecast. Whether looking at an individual day or understanding the wind shifts with a frontal passage, I have found your site essential to my planning. Prior to and during hurricane Irma, your predictions were fantastic...and when compared to real time radar, it was “the picture to have”.
I use a large IPad Pro at the helm, which allows me to use ActiveCaptain, Garmin Blue charts, Wonderground WX, and Windyty. It’s the best “one stop shop” for a working captain.
Thank you and my best,
