Nice design, inaccurate weather data (USA)
The app has a nice design and a pleasing interface that makes checking the weather across multiple cities simple. However, I find that it has questionable accuracy. The temperature data usually isn’t too far off from other weather services (checking against websites and iOS weather apps), but the current condition and future forecasts tend to be inaccurate. For an example of what I mean, it has been overcast all day, yet the app claims that it is and has been perfectly sunny. This causes me to question the accuracy of the rest of the data. There’s no point in having a weather app that is inaccurate, or that causes you to double-check it against a weather service website or another app. I don’t know what weather service the app pulls its data from, but there is no way to change it.
I do not use a Netatmo device, and thus can’t review that function of the program. I also have not checked the accuracy of weather data for non-USA locations. If you’re in the USA and are looking for a weather app, I would recommend against this app due to the questionable weather data.
Needs additional refinement, but overall a Great Effort.
Needs refinement on multi-monitor configurations, i.e., does not support multiple monitors well. Click on the menubar in one of your additional monitors, and the app consistently opens on the home screen (in my case, a MacBook Pro 17). No capabilities to alter this behavior. Additionally, the weather data is certainly questionable, especially when going up against some of the competition that apaprently have more robust data provisioning. I do like the interface in general, and own both the iOS and the MAC OS X versions. Looking forward to better data, and greater customization in the future.
