SimplyWeather - The Simple Weather app
By Anthony Castelli
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
SimplyWeather conveniently puts the weather in your mac's status bar. Quickly glance up and look at the current temperature outside. Click on it to get a more detailed view of what the current conditions are and what the next four days will be. Hover you mouse over the information to get a quick forecast of today or the next four days. The goal for this project was to make a much simpler way of getting the current weather. Dashboard has always had a widget for it, but I always found it a pain to have to view the weather. SimplyWeather makes it much easier to access that data.
What's New in Version 1.0.2
NEW: Added the option to use a custom location.
NEW: Hold the option key down when clicking on the SimplyWeather icon to bring up a contextual menu.
FIXED: Text on the Yellow background is now easier to read.
FIXED: Weather Alerts no longer keep showing up after you have closed them.
FIXED: Some places the forecast date was messed up.
FIXED: The (null) location issue. (I hope)

Great little app, and I love anything that’s accessable from the menu bar!! But PLEASE, ad one little preference - to create a keyboard shortcut to open the app without having to mouse up to the menu bar. As much as I love menu bar apps, I hate using the mouse :). Otherwise, great app!! Thanks.
Ok, except there’s an annoying bug
This is an occassional bug that keeps happening to me. The app will display the current day’s weather, then in the four-day display at the bottom, it will skip tomorrow.
For example, I see Tuesday’s (today) weather, then at the bottom I see Thurs - Sunday.
Excellent, Clean, Attractive
The app seems to work better on OSX 10.10 than it was on 10.9. Maybe it’s because I reinstalled the app, who knows.
I love how clean this weather app is, gives me a great weekly outlook with a nice, simple format.
The app has a minor bug where the forecasted weather for the next few days will *skip* tomorrow in the list after the current time of the day passes 6pm. Maybe this is due to my location relative to UTC? Since my location is -6 hours (Mountain Time).
