What's New in Version 2.0

OurWeather 2.0 is Beautiful but in Serious need of Repair
I purchased this app because the graphical representations are laid out nicely and are more attractive than average. Unfortunately version 2.0 has a serious flaw. While the desktop weather information was initially correct following input of my location, a relaunch of the app brought up the wrong conditions even though it continued to "name" the correct city, as entered previously. The conditions were over 30 degrees different upon relaunch, so the error was self-apparent. Without accurate data, this app is essentially unusable. My concern is that by the time the developers fix this, it won't work with Snow Leopard (and that's also a reason I downloaded it; the current version is compatible with my system.)
There are some design issues that need correction, which I hope will get some attention from the develoopers, too. The jumbo desktop widget, while arguably among the more attractive of the available weather widgets in the Mac Store, is too big even on a 27" iMac. There is no widget resize option that I can find in v. 2.0. If I close the desktop widget, the entire app closes and I also lose the task bar weather status. It would be more intuitive if the task bar weather data loaded first, and the desktop widget loaded "on demand" in clicking the task bar or using a keyboard shortcut.
There should be user-selectable options here, one for those who want the desktop weather widget to appear only when queried and one that allows the desktop widget to sit on the desktop indefinitely, while running, as it currently does. At this time, however, there is only a "hide" vs. "show" option for the desktop widget. (It is unclear if it is still consuming the same resources when "minimized".) Were the app designed to default to the task bar a drop-down or pop-up of the full size desktop display upon mouseover would be that much more intuitive, IMHO. Similarly, there needs to be a preference option for the size of the desktop widget. A scale/resize option would make this easier to leave out on the desktop without it taking up a huge amount of space. I like the large, easy-to-read design of the current desktop widget, and I don't want that option to go away, but there needs to be a "shrink" option. Again, this could be resolved with a mouseover type animation in which a smaller one sits on the desktop and the full-size one expands with a mouseover, keyboard shortcut or mouse click. Again, however, even having the desktop widget load at launch should be a user-selectable preference (e.g. view app in task bar vs. desktop "always on").
Ultimately, I'm wondering how to get my money back for this beautiful app not because of the non-intuitiveness of some of the design functions but because the data it pulled upon being shut down and relaunched came from parts unknown, and that makes it unusable. As someone new to the Mac Store, I just don't see how to get a refund, and I've had this app on my system less than an hour. Apple ought to take their Mac Store cue from the Google Play store with a "refund and uninstall" option available for the first 30 minutes or so post download!
