Wind Vane is the newest real-time wind speed and direction application for the iPhone. It only costs $0.99 and uses the the closest US weather station to provide accurate information. Wind Vane displays wind speed in miles per hour, knots or kilometers per hour and it is very useful to windsurfers and kitesurfers.
The iPhone app also features a built-in compass so that you can confirm the wind direction relative to true or magnetic North. Wind Vane gets your GPS location and starts delivering accurate information. The electronic gadget works on an iPhone 3GS and later as it requires a compass, while connected to the internet.
