    Doesn't the STORM have alot of wind speed on it's own?

    That's not wind speed.......it's gas. Ooops. Excuse me.

    With the Iphone though, I can't imagine how you test the speed of the wind unless it's built into the fart noise maker it so proudly boasts. Maybe it calculates it by how hard you throw it against the wall?

    The video worked fine for me looks like a cool app however like most of the iphone apps I've seen its pretty much useless info unless you are a weather guy or a storm chaser or something

    Lol... The iphone is full of crazy pointless stuff to just fiddle around with... Reminds me of childrens play toys... More advanced, but a toy none the less... (imho ofcourse)...

    I would find it hard to believe the accuracy. I purchase windometer's for our company all the time and they just aren't built the way a phone is. Don't see a way the phone could guage the speed. Most windometer's have a section on them that the wind goes through to determine the speed.

    Just my take

    Samsung Galaxy S4
    Asus Nexus 7
    Nook Color
