Users love Degrees as well as our amazing support. Just see what some of our real users had to say recently:


"This is the weather app that Apple should ship with every Mac by default..." - Arlo G

"Their support is amazing. For some reason it wasn't detecting location automatically, emailed over and was helped within 10 minutes." - Zac C

"This is lovely - I am pretty hesitant to install menubar apps normally, but this one more than deserves a spot up there to the right." - Stuart C

"Just sits up there, providing the temperature where you are along with a conditions indicator. Clicking on the temp brings up a beautiful forecast and expanded conditions including wind speed/direction and humidity. Simple but polished." - James K

"Simple but sweet. It's the little things in life.." - Gene F

UPDATED: Awesome weather app!

Update 2/6/15:
The app has been fixed and now my “pro” features are there! Thanks for fixing the problem so quickly! Thought I was being let down by one of the coolest apps I use on a daily basis. Back up to five stars!

Review from 2/4/15:
I had paid for the supporter package for this app and after the last update, all the features I paid for are now gone. Restoring purchases doesn’t help. Seems like the developers of this app just want more money since I have to purchase the “pro” version to get my features back. I’m not purchasing the pro version of this app simply because it’s unjust that I already paid for something and I’m not grandfathered in.

Almost perfect!

UPDATE 4.2.1:

The in-app purchase issue was quickly resolved. Everything works as advertised except this feature which I continue to report like a broken record:

The “Automatically discover current location” feature STILL does not work. Clicking the checkbox DOES NOTHING. It makes no change to the location already listed.


I previously made a $1.99 “Degrees Supporter” in-app purchase to enable the 5 day forecast. That appears to be non-function in this latest “upgrade” even after trying the “Restore Purchase” option multiple times. And the “Automatically discover current location” feature STILL does not work.


Again it works great but the “Automatically discover current location” feature STILL does not work.

UPDATE 3.02:

Contrary to what is stated in the “What’s New” section, the “Automatically discover current location” feature still does not work. Other than that this is a great app.


Does what it says it will do. For the most part. Current Location feature is simply not functional at all. Great icons though!

Slick and beautiful but lacking some wanted features

Right off the bat I love how simple this app is. It also blends very well with the current toolbar in Yosemite, especially in dark mode. I came across this app since I was trying to replace the much dated Meterorogist app for Mac. One great feature that I like about this app is the ability to auto find locations. I travel pretty far from home to work so it’s nice not to manually have to switch locations. Two things that I would like to see built in to this app is quick access to a radar screen based off the current location and secondly have a way to show alerts. Overall I think this app is two thumbs up.
