Liked MenuWeather name better

i’m a hard one to convince that a complete rebranding (new name, new icon, new unalterable dark slate + "Google blue” look) is for the better. What’s wrong with MenuWeather 5.0? The old name said it all. Orbis sounds latin and geography-esque, but doesn’t really connect with “weather." I really want to go back to the higher contrast light look though, the new dark look is too low contrast and kiddie-pool looking. Also, as a Little Snitch reverse firewall user, none of the existing exceptions for MenuWeather were valid for Orbis, so i had to allow new exceptions and also allow Orbis to use location services. So the upgrade wasn’t seamless out of the box. Also, now “Current Conditions” floater is sitting there stuck with no menu selected, hovering over everything on my screen. Hard to complain too loudly at $1.99 and with a free upgrade, but it’s definitely a work in progress, needing some more love!

Glad to have my old friend back!

MenuWeather was one of my favorite Mac App Store apps. So I was definitely missing it while Orbis was being developed. It’s a point zero release, and I’ve had a few random quits. I’m sure with a bunch of users reporting bugs, it’ll get sorted out as well as additional features and customization options.

But this developer really deserves praise and recognition for not charging for existing MenuWeather owners! This was a free update for us for what looks like a complete rewrite, renaming/rebranding. When was the last time you saw that happen? It's amazing, and I am grateful.

Much Better After Name Change

I’m starting with a new review since the name has changed. Not wild about the new name, but honestly, I really don’t care that much at all. Previously I was having so much trouble that I stopped using MenuWeather altogether. Now it’s been running great on both my iMac and my rMBP. I wish there was a bit more info available per user choice in the drop down menu, and maybe a few more preferences, but other than that it’s working great for me. One thing I would definitely like would be a dock icon option with information images like WeatherDock has.
