WindFreak is a global wind and wave forecasting solution. It was designed with Surfers, Kitesurfers, Windsurfers, sailors and all other wind-sport enthusiasts in mind. It uses a very clean and intuitive interface. http://windfreakblog.blogspot.co.uk/——-Current features include:2x Homescreen Widget: 4 day wind forecast and a 7 day swell forecast.2x favorite spots: All Favourite forecasts will be cached for offline use (great when you have no signal on a trip). Horizontal and vertical scrolling forecast layouts that switch as you rotate the phone. Share a forecast with friends by simply long clicking the chosen day down, and sharing to facebook, gmail, or other social media.Favourite menu: Press menu to get details of the forecast Run, Webcams and Live Wind.Any location in the world: Pick any location on the global grid from Google maps, and get a wind and wave forecast.Request a Spot: Become Part of the community and Help me out by requesting a spot. Spotlists will be updated every 2 or 3 days.There are Adds on this versionCurrently WindFreak uses GFS and NWW3 forecast data, but with the support of the users WindFreak aims to run high resolution WRF models on a new server in the near future.PERMISSIONS EXPLAINEDINTERNETThe app needs to access the internet to get forecasts.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATEThe app needs this permission to check for a network connectionWRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGEThe App uses this permission to create a png image of the forecast if you decide to share it via social media.VIBRATEThe App uses this permission to allow it to Vibrate when doing "long clicks" etc.CHECK_LICENSEThe App uses this permission to check the license with google’s servers (Pro Only).READ_PHONE_STATEThe App uses this permission to create a unique identifier for the device, so any spammers can be blocked, and usage can be logged.
