Okay but not like it used to be...
I had been on Weatherbug’s case for a couple of years at least to get a new Weatherbug app for Mac once they decided to make it obsolete. I asked them many times and instead of assuring me that they were working on a new version, they dismissed the idea as never going to happen! Anyway, this version is okay….I LOVE the icons that show what the weather is or if it is foggy: it is a little car with some “mist” around it. :) Now to what I don’t like…now hang on, this is IMPORTANT. Weatherbug! You NEED to bring back your “chirp” to the app! This is the one and only thing I miss. It was greatly appreciated when the bug would “chirp” and blink in the menubar to let me know that severe weather was coming! When I lived in Delaware through two hurricanes/superstorms and a few tornado warnings, this is what I felt protected us from potential disaster. Why you guys decided to drop this ever-important feature is beyond me. When you main the older versions obsolete, I had spent a lot of money and time searching for a replacement and so far nothing comes as close. I do have one I like over Weatherbug but it lacks the “chirp” alert.
BRING THE “CHIRP” ALERT BACK! IT IS A LIFESAVER!
Awesome little widget...
Nice, elegant design and really easy to use. I like how I can see the most pertinent weather info at my fingertips while at work. And, if I want more information, it’s just a click away to the WeatherBug website. I don’t understand why people complain about ads when the app is free. And, why would I want every feature from WeatherBug on my status bar? If I want more feature rich WeatherBug content, I can just use WeatherBug on my iPhone, like I did before. This was a great idea! Well done, WeatherBug.
Crappy replacement for Dashboard widget
1) Nobody asked for a replacement of the WeatherBug Dashboard widget with a menubar applet.
2) The Dashboard can be invoked with a convenient swipe, whereas the menubar app requires precise placement and clicking of the trackpad/mouse pointer.
3) The original widget displayed a clear, graphical 3-day weather forecast including conditions and hi/o temps. The new app displays only a single day's forecast, in a hard to read font/layout, and opens an f'ing web page if you want to view more.
4) There is an infinite variety of superior weather websites. WeatherBug Lite fails to provide any useful utility and is a step down from its Dashboard predecessor. In short, it’s worthless.
