I just installed the Android app, and my very first impression is I can't find the instructions.

RE: App has no way to set Home screen Start-up zoom
OK. (But perhaps do like the Flightradar24 app, remembering the previous zoom through thick and thin (all manner of restarts, powerdowns, etc.)
Three hour jumps are just too crude
- Visit https://www.windy.com/-Rain-thunder-rain?rain,23.790,120.624,8
- Hit keyboard→→→→... to advance time three hours at a time.
You will observe that for major storm blobs one can follow the logic of how they travel.
But for anything less, it is: how did cloud A jump to point B? Etc.
Therefore we see that three hour jumps are just too wide.
One hour jumps are needed to keep the cloud movement logic recognizable. P.S., no I am not "overly zoomed in for my own good."
The site does a super job with the little wind arrows. Now time to fix up jerky weather blob (cloud) movement.
RE: Alert menu wind direction should also include arrows
In fact I now notice the original "pizza pie" in the image indeed has eight slices, apparently trying to express the same thing
(that a slice pointing north is called "S"(outh), etc.)
RE: How to set up a Windy Alert
@idefix37 It turns out the "suspend alert for some time" button is only available if one clicks on the link sent to one's mailbox. Otherwise for me it the pencil is just a "rename" link, like the last pencil in your image, the one that you didn't put a red arrow next to.
Metric units should be on the same side of settings
In the app go to settings. Now look at temperature rain snow excetera. Some of them have the metric units on the right, and some of them on the left. They all should be on the same side. The English units should be on the other side.
