Windfinder Android App now includes Widgets!
We just released a new version of our Windfinder Android App. Besides some smaller bugfixes, we have filled a popular feature request: the Windfinder Pro app now also features a widget! Now you can see the conditions at your local spot right on your home screen.
Did you know: Wind on your desktop
Besides the normal way of opening a browser and pointing it to www.windfinder.com, there are also other ways to stay in touch with the wind while you are at your computer. If you have Firefox running, you perhaps already know about our Firefox extension Windfox, but we also have so-called “Widgets” or “Gadgets” available for almost any computer platform there is.
With every widget, you can view the current wind speed and the wind forecast for the next days. It updates frequently, so you can be sure to never miss the wind again. The widgets also can alarm you when the wind speed extends beyond a certain configurable threshold.
If you run Windows Vista, the Windfinder Gadget is available for your sidebar. For Mac OSX, the Widget sits in your Dashboard. If you have Windows XP or Linux, you must install Google Desktop first before installing our Google Gadget. And if you are using the Yahoo widget engine, we also have a widget available for that.
Windfinder Yahoo Weather Widget
Windfinder releases another weather widget for your desktop, the Windfinder Yahoo weather widget. Why does Windfinder release another weather widget when there are already Windfinder widgets for Mac OS, Windows Vista and the Google Desktop Search? That’s because the Mac OS widget is only available for Mac OS, the Vista Widget is only for Windows Vista and in order to use the Google Desktop Gadget you have to install the Google Desktop Search and activate the sidebar. We wanna give you more choices to monitor the weather on your desktop! Pick the widget you like best. By the way, you can help us develop a widget for mobile devices and for Linux.
Windfinder is back!
You may have seen some very strange forecasts on windfinder.com recently. We apologize for those erroneous forecasts. They were caused by an unforeseen change in our system. But now all these problems have been resolved and we’ll provide many nice things in the coming months like more forecast locations, improved forecasts, nice weather widgets, support of other languages, etc.
