I have an iPhone 5 and therefore stuck with iOS 10.3.4. The AppStore loads the "last compatible" version of the Windy App which is version 19.14.5
Does that mean I will never get any updates of the Windy App anymore?

RE: Windy launches Route Planner
at fcoo.dk you can find a simple version of a routing tool where you can adjust boat speed and starting time. what is missing here though is the forecast in table form or even as a graph. i'm sure windy can go one better. :-) thanks for all the helpful tools!
this is an amazing tool, @rittels !
i have no idea about aviation. but with a few changes this also has a big potential for the sailing/boating community as well.
first and most importantly for a nautical use let us choose a slower traveling speed (seems at the moment I can only choose 20kn or higher). I think half knots steps from 1 to 10kn would be a good start. :-)
then for a "sailor version" get rid of all the altitude settings to clean up the UI and take ground level as basic setting. also then change a few terms and abbreviations here and there to use proper nautical language. easy peasy, right? ;-)
again, awesome tool to play around with. thanks.
RE: Your map annotations
Why no Arome data north of this line to compare with other models. @ivo

RE: Windy launches "Observation vs. Forecast"
i don't like this new feature because it will be available on all weather stations..official and PWS. But what should the point on PWS? PWS are often not reliable..because they are not installed with the complicated rules for installing a weather station for meassure real! values. And then compare this PWS to the weather forecast? Useless imho...
What are those "complicated rules"? Can you explain, please?
If you don't like the PWS reports, then don't click on them. For some it might be helpful information though. Especially if you know where and how the PWS is installed you can evaluate the data for yourself. Maybe a photo of the weather station's location could help.
RE: no AROME data in corners of covered area
just playing around I realize this behavior seems very inconsistent .... for example, if I click on Hamburg (GER) on the map there is no Arome data, even though it's well inside the covered area. Prague (CZE) or Vigo (ESP) gets Arome data even though they are much closer to the Arome edge. :-(
no AROME data in corners of covered area
Loving the implementation of new features like the AROME model.
One thing I noticed is that it is impossible to explore any data if I drag or zoom the screen anywhere near the corners of the Arome covered area. It switches very early to another model even if I zoom in far enough to only see part of the Arome covered area. It's not so bad at the edges, but in the corners its almost impossible to look even from far away.
I realize that it's the same behavior with the NEMS and ICON models if you go anywhere near (some 100km?) the corners of the covered area.
Any chance this automatic switch to bigger models can be pushed further outwards or even be turned off? I would suggest that as long as you can see part of covered area, Windy should not switch to another model than I have selected.
Thanks for your consideration.
