Customer Reviews

Clear Day (Used to be Weather HD)

I have this app on both my MacBookPro and my iPad. It’s a little more full-featured on the Mac than on the IPad, but I do prefer it over all the others I have tried. I like the graphics and I like that there are severe weather reports for cities/areas on my list. I like that it finds the areas for me on the iPad.

It uses the Weather Underground which has been my favorite for years. Maps and radar are cool, too :)

Recently the writing on the severe weather report has been going to black when the tab comes out … Not too useful, but I suspect that it is either something I have done worng, or will be fixed soon (from all the complaints LOL)

One thing I think is a bit odd… the version on my iPad has a location close to where I live, but the Mac version does not recognize the location. It isn’t a problem as all sub-regions that are near where I live go off the bigger city in my area, so the information is about the same. It is just odd that that more fully-featured version does not have one of the sub-regions.

Great weather program though.. Keep up the good work and PLEASE don’t try to over simplify it in the future. I like the forecasts (3 day and 10 day)

Great data but needs work on delivery

First of all, I love the detailed information I get when I click on the menubar icon. I like how the weather is displayed and it’s very similar to Meteorologist, which no longer works for some reason.

HOWEVER, I have a few suggestions-
1. Nix the animated “flyby” weather. If you’re buying a product like this and want good, real-time data about weather you’re not someone who is amused by some clouds floating around. I don’t really understand the purpose of it beyond someone saying “hey this was a nifty thing to put in here!” It’s not. It’s annoying, and it gets in the way of the buttloads of good data you receive from this program.

2. The software needs to be fixed so that if you exit the big window that shows up, it still stays in the menubar. I don’t want something cluttering my dock when all I want is to check the weather.

3. I really like the layout of the dropdown menu bar data. Maybe work that graphic interface into the rest of the program?

Overall I really love the data and the way you can navigate around, but cleaning it up so it’s not campy or hokey would really push this app up the chain in its awesomeness!

I also love the App and Preferred the old Icon

I, too, love the App but preferred the old Icon on my dock. And it would be nice to zoom in further on the map - heck I would even like to see my house, or at least the lake I live by! (Oh - I guess it does show a little) . But I am very happy to have the app and use it almost daily. I do still get the Weather Channel info by email for todays weather and also the week, but I usually don't open it and just delete it. And if I do look at the Weather Channel report I always also check Clear Day and prefer Clear Day. And I like all the things you can check, the wind and expected wind, dew levels, humidity levels, radar, clouds and the pictures are great and the little symbol at the top of the computer along with the current temp is something I check several times a day. I guess this is really one of my very favorite apps. - Jo from Idaho
