Introducing Farensius 2! Including some highly requested features such as night-mode and automatically detecting your location.

Farensius is a little application that displays the current weather on your menubar.

Base features:
- Current temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit in the menu bar.
- An icon of the current weather condition in the menu bar.
- Auto-discover location.
- Auto-detect sunrise/sunset time to toggle between day/night modes.
- Extended weather report when the mouse cursor hovers above the menu bar.
- Menu drop-down that shows a 5 day forecast.
- Customise what to display and how often to update.

Pro features (in-app purchase):
- Automatically change your Mac's desktop wallpaper depending on the current weather condition.
- 5 sets of defaults wallpapers including day and night modes.
- Use your own photos with a simple drag and drop.

Note: If the temperature does not seem correct for your city, try to be more specific. For example you can use the following format for the City field: "CITY, STATE/PROVINCE, COUNTRY".

What's New in Version 2.0.2

- Improvement: Updates weather immediately after the Mac wakes up from sleep, instead of waiting until the next refresh interval.

What's new in 2.0.

- Automatically detect your location.
- Night mode. On a clear night, a moon instead of a sun will be displayed as the icon.
- Icons in retina resolution.
- Absorbs functionality from Farensius Desktop that changes the desktop wallpaper based on the current weather condition. Available as an in-app purchase.
- Entire app is rewritten in Swift, the new beautiful programming language from Apple.
- New app icon.

Thank you to all the users who have been patiently waiting for the new release. It has certainly taken too long, but better late than never I suppose...

Waking Up From Sleep

I’m still having some issues when waking up from sleep on my Macbook Pro. When waking up from sleep, it takes about 10-15 seconds to reconnect to the Wi-Fi. It appears that the application is checking for updated weather information while the laptop is temporarily disconnected from Wi-Fi. Therefore, the app is displaying 'N/A'. Why not KEEP the older information displayed rather than displaying ’N/A’. Then check back for updated weather again after x minutes (whatever the user specified in the settings).

What happened?

This use to be my favortie app, it was one of those apps that I always recommended and was the first app I installed. How far this app has fallen from the top spot.

1.) The app weather does not update, it has been snowing and 27 for over a week. No amount of refreshing, uninstalling and reinstalling has fixed the issue.

2.) Have you been experiencing wallpapers that just won’t stop changing from a wallpaper of distant past? Well uninstall this app and try again.

All in all this app is most certainly broken, I am so disappointed as this was one of my must have downloaded apps. Hope that this gets fixed soon, however at this time i will be uninstalling and cannot recommend to anyone at this time.


Current version is broken, does not automatically update. Program was fine before 2.0.2 update.
