Highly customizable, clean interface, accurate data

Doc Hardware

Key points; highly customizable, accurate data, great customer service from devs. Great app.

I love this app because it can be tailored to suit your own taste. The interface is clean in general, and you can add or remove fields on information if you want more or less to be visible from a glance. I think this app is worth the subscription, though many people want everything for free. Most weather apps have a boring or gaudy UI, are somewhat accurate, and have ads, with an option to pay to remove ads... that’s all.

ForecastBar has served me perfectly. I’ve used Accuweather, The Weather Channel app, and the Apple Weather app, among others. Forecast Bar beats them all hands-down.

The developers even went above and beyond for me with a recent update: I have my version of the app customized to avoid affecting my night vision (light discipline. red text on black) but a prior update made the phone go bright white while loading, which defeated my purposes. I emailed the developers, and they made the screen go black on startup instead of white. Problem solved, and most other people probably didn’t realize, or necessarily care, but it made a huge difference for me.

Forecast Bar has never given me much of a reason to complain. Even when I did have an issue, though minor, it was fixed within days. Definitely a satisfied customer!

Bait and switch


When I downloaded this app because of the iMessage features, it wasn't clear at all that this was for a trial period, then if I want to keep the functionality, I have to pay. It's a bait and switch and I'm super turned off. It doesn't matter how much I liked the app in iMessage, on my phone, my Apple Watch, whatever, I'm not going to pay to play. It's a shame too, as the app gave me most of what I was looking for, but I'm not interested in having to pay every year to unlock functionality on my phone, then extra for functionality on my watch. Had this app been a pay once and up front for everything sort of app, I'd have very strongly considered it, as it's what I'm looking for, but like I said, the bait and switch nature of their sales pitch has completely turned me off. I get a week of functionality for free? Ridiculous. It's on me for not being aware of this from the get go? Yeah, but honestly, when you're downloading sometjing for use in iMessage, are you usually taking the time to read all of the details? No!
Deleting and going back to the other paid apps I use that don't bait and switch like this junk.

Developer Response

We're sorry you feel misled, but we are very upfront with our model. We also offer an iMessage all called Weather for Messages that provides just the iMessage add in for $0.99 as a one-time payment.

Something's Changed

Luke Lucas

i've been using Forecast Bar for over two years now and in that time i'd rate my satisfaction anywhere between 90-99%. recent updates, however, have forced me to start reconsidering whether i keep the app as my main source of weather updates and predictions.

the information is just as great as it's always been, but these last few updates have made the app unstable and sometimes nearly unusable. immediate freezing, blank screens when in the app, forcing my entire phone to lock up, and generally just *not good*.

i don't know if Forecast Bar is trying to do too much with the family of apps across the Watch, iPhone, and desktop, but the more functionality they stick in, the worse it seems to get. and yes, i'm a fully paid subscriber on all platforms.
