The official "Lite" app to access wind and weather forecasts from

Warning! If you do not know anything about Windguru and you are looking for classic weather app with animated weather pictograms, this is NOT FOR YOU! :-)

This app works similiar to the full website at but only offers the most important features: forecasts, live stations, maps.

Development of this Lite app will go on, now it's just a subset of the web version but soon it should bring some "old good" features of the old app (
and become an alternative for those who wish something between the full site and the old-school app

The app now supports adding favourites for quick access even for anonymous users.

You can use your windguru login to access favourites associated with your existing account and to view PRO forecasts (if you are a PRO subscriber)

Please note that the original Windguru website is made as a Progressive web app, which means it can work just like an app on your Android device and offers full functionality. It's recommended to use it like that. More info at
This Windguru Lite version is only a simple alternative available from Google Play.

In case you prefer the old app, find "Windguru Old" on Google Play:
or install one of the old APK files manually from here:

    Nice app. I've always used windguru and find the lite version very good and easy to use. Amazed at the negative comments actually. I'm a pro user and find the laptop version used as an app also very good. In fact I use the lite version more's quick and everything I need is on that version. I prefer the sea conditions build into the app. If you log in and have your favourites set up its wonderful. Well done to the developers...the old version needed a facelift. Ps after last update cannot exit from favourites Full Review

    This new version it's more slow than the older. I don't like it. (Xperia Z3 and Android 6.0.1) ***** Update ***** After uninstall and install again and give the app GPS permissions it runs more faster. Although, thanks for the support response with the links to the older version to make the downgrade. I have restored the 5 stars 😃 Full Review

    I used to live this app but recently i can't save a spot as a favorite or close the app using the x. It seems some of the 'buttons' arn't working. I downloaded the winguru 11 app and this is better but it has ads :( and the daytime/nighttime temp is showing the same :( Full Review

    Far better than the new version of the app. I am a paid subscriber to WG11 and he that the developer sees the light of day re-introduces the easily readable classic look of this app, instead of the cryptic icons and crammed display of the new version. I will likely cancel my subscription if I do not see movement in that direction in the near future. Full Review

    Like it, but.... It is a great app and I use it on daily basis. However there is one thing that bothers me... When I switch between knots, kph, mph, m/s it skips Beaufort. It shows it for a second and disappears again. At first I thought it was my phone causing the problem, but now I have a new phone, I appear to have the same problem. Any suggestions?? Full Review

    One Problem This app is great. But one thing is wrong; it seems to be missing some areas. I was looking for Nevada, United States, and no results came up. Nevada isn't even listed under states that start with 'N'. Please add more locations! Full Review

    C'mon guys... Your great website doesn't deserve this silly app. Password remains exposed on app when you login, visualization is not optimized for mobile, you can't create widgets for your quick access to your place, and it's ugly. Better just create a shortcut for the Windguru webpage for your city with your favorite browser. Full Review

    Abandoned by the development team - last updated at the end of 2015, and it has some pretty glaring and easy to fix issues. It works, but some features are broken and probably won't ever be fixed. Try an alternative. Full Review
