1. What is Desktop Wind?

Desktop Wind is a stand-alone application that runs on your desktop. It works on the Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. With Desktop Wind, you can Search our database for your Favorite spots, set up Alerts for those spots, then minimize it to an icon in your system tray. When your Alerts are triggered, you'll get an instant-message style pop-up letting you know. Clicking on the pop-up will show you a wind graph. To get Desktop Wind, click here.

2. Does it cost money to install or use this App?

No, installing and running the application is TOTALLY FREE. Access the the vast majority of weather stations is also TOTALLY FREE.

3. So, how do you make money?

As with our website, Desktop Wind is advertiser-sponsored, so you'll see advertisements when the application is active. Also, you will need a premium membership to access certain exclusive content such as the weather stations we own and operate (get a free trial here!).

4. I can't install Desktop Wind.

Desktop Wind requires Adobe AIR to be installed on your computer. If you used the download link on this page, Adobe AIR should have been installed if you didn't already have it. You may need help troubleshooting Adobe AIR.

5. I get a connection error, and/or I get a message from my security software complaining about Adobe AIR or Desktop Wind.

Desktop Wind needs a connection to the Internet in order to work. Anti-virus or security software may block it by default, so you may need to explicitly allow it.

6. Does this app contain any spyware?

No, this app is 100% spyware free!
