    Windfinder is hands down the best boating app that I use. I use it every single week and it has been nearly spot on for over 2 years now. If you really enjoy the app I suggest upgrading to pro. It gives you a widget that you can add to see the week ahead, now I don't even need to open the app and it was just a couple dollars. Well worth it to keep this valuable app going ! Full Review
