BEST WEATHER SMARTPHONE APPS

A selection of tried and true smartphone weather/star gazer apps for the dry continent.

BOMWind Finder and Willy Weather are freebies. However Wind Finder Pro is an excellent investment at minimal cost for wind outlooks.

I recommend Wind Finder Pro and Pocket Grib as the best apps for long term wind oulook. The only downside with Pocket Grib is the need to constantly download GRIB files to update the wind modelling charts. However you will always need an internet connection for any app.
