Wind Sensor

Chosen by Apple as one of the App Store’s top “New & Noteworthy” Apps in Weather category!

Wind Sensor is the first professional grade sound based anemometer and compass application for iOS devices.

It uses device sound input to estimate wind speed. It works by analyzing the sound of wind passing the device microphone. This is achieved using the advanced proprietary algorithms to filter out the wind generating sound from the background noise and other sounds.

In our extensive field testing we found out that Wind Sensor performs similar or in some cases the same as hardware based anemometer devices.

Wind Sensor is the first wind speed measuring application that includes compass integration, so you can easily find wind direction.

The application is best suited for kite-surfing, windsurfing, hiking, sailing, ballooning and in every other situation when you don’t have dedicated anemometer device at hand.

Application is not designed to be used in very noisy environment, as external noise may interfere with the wind speed reading.

Wind Sensor is the first wind speed estimation app for iOS devices which will display “Wind Barb”, standard unique symbol which represents measured wind.

Wind Sensor includes reading in following units: miles per hour, meters per second, kilometers per hour, knots, feet per second and Beaufort scale.

– Features:
● Accurate wind speed measurement
● Supports speeds 4-115mph
● Integrated compass used for finding wind direction
● Wind Barb, standard symbols to represent current wind reading
● Numerical wind reading
● Support for multiple standard units
● Scale visualizing current speed measurement
● Rotating blades representing wind motion estimation

– Usage Instructions:
Simply point the device so that device microphone points into the wind at a slight angle. Wait a few seconds to get the accurate reading. The numerical reading is the average for the time period. Wind Sensor works the best on devices without protective covers. You can use Wind Sensor settings page to select desired unit, or you can easily switch between units in application using “Unit” button. Wind Sensor is most effective when measuring winds with consistent speed. Wind Sensor accuracy progressively increases with wind speeds bigger than 5mph.

– Requirement:
● Any iOS device with sound input

Accuracy depends on the device capabilities, where newer devices usually mean better accuracy.

This application is not meant to be used in place of commercial grade anemometers or scientific instrumentation, but it can come great if you have none at hand.…/id398101772?mt=8&uo=4

Wx for iPad

The venerable U.S. weather app Wx, named a Mac Gem by Macworld magazine, is now available for iPad! Wx displays current conditions, forecasts, alerts, and radar for U.S. locations using high fidelity XML data from the U.S. National Weather Service. The app is designed for two specific types of customers: serious weather watchers who want detailed information and facts with no fuss, and casual users who want a fast, clean, and functional weather app that has low memory overhead and low CPU/battery usage.

Wx lets you choose your location on an embedded map, and uses that to setup custom forecasts based on the latitude and longitude of the location. Forecasts include a 7-day summary “point” forecast, and a 7-day “pro” forecast that graphs temperature (actual and apparent), dew point, relative humidity, cloud cover, wind speed, wind direction, gust speed, 12-hour probability of precipitation, 6-hour liquid precipitation amount, and 6-hour snow amount. These forecasts are about as good as it gets if you need to plan work, sports, hobbies, and outdoor activities based on upcoming weather. With their high spatial resolution, the point and pro forecasts are especially useful in coastal and mountainous regions, where typical zone forecasts can be inaccurate.

Wx also lets you receive current conditions data from nearby NWS observation sites (over 1700 available in the U.S. and its territories), get radar data from nearby NEXRAD radar sites, and receive warnings from nearby city- and county-based alert zones.

Wx lets you bookmark and setup weather maps for quick reference. Choose from many default NWS maps and images, or provide the URL for any map of your choice and load it right in the app! If you have preferred weather providers, you can load your favorite maps and images right in Wx and keep them handy.

Wx is crafted with attention to detail by a professional software developer with over 25 years of experience, 11 years focused on developing weather software for OS X and 8 years writing apps for iOS devices. Wx has multiple levels of redundancy to handle severe weather events that can strain NWS servers, and even offers network settings for both Wi-Fi and cellular operation so that you can fine tune the app’s performance and bandwidth needs.

Mac users, be sure to check out Wx for OS X on the Mac App Store. iPhone users, check out Wx for iPhone here on iTunes.
