Pack the gear!
Outdoor activities often depend on good weather. Have you ever flown a kite or model aeroplane? Packing the flight gear and driving down to the park only to find it's too windy to fly can be frustrating. Instead use this app to drop windsock markers down on a map and get the latest wind readings for a near-by location so you know if it's great weather to fly.
Save your marker as a site and you can get the wind speed and direction up to 7 days in advance with high-resolution wind readings every hour for the next 48 hours on demand for almost anywhere in the world. If your device has a built-in compass, use "Relative Wind Directions" to quickly work out the wind direction and get wind speeds in kts, ft/s, mph, m/s and kph. With iCloud support you can easily sync your wind sites between devices too!
