The Best Weather App Now Even Better!
Still The Best! Some of us are so resistant to change. I am a longtime WeatherBug fan, and yes, the new interface is very different. However, all the vital info is at your fingertip with only a tap or swipe. Really, how hard is that? Great new features with the all of the dependable, most accurate and up-to-the-minute info available. Get the only weather app you will ever need.
September 2015 Update; WOW! Get it now!
No problems with latest IOS update. Weather Bug just got even better! Spark Lightning feature is great at indicating storm severity. Radar beats all others hands down. Everything functions fine for me on third generation iPad.
Weatherbug Home function is broken
The biggest update I saw in this latest version was the ability to supposedly link my Nest thermostat to Weatherbug Home, to get personalized info regarding energy useage and even control the thermostat. So I went through the whole setup procedure to link Weatherbug to my Nest account and register the device with Weatherbug, which did finally work....I could see my thermostat settings in Weatherbug, could see the personalized energy suggestions, etc. However....you have to again go through multiple steps to connect Weatherbug back to the Nest account EVERY TIME YOU START THE WEATHERBUG APP, AS FOR SOME REASON IT DOESN'T SEEM TO HOLD ONTO THE INFO YOU'VE ALREADY GIVEN IT! Going through these steps to re-connect the app to my Nest account every single time makes the Home feature worthless. I've removed it from the screen.
This app started out as a great, simple and accurate weather app. It has evolved into an app which has access to your privacy AND can CONTROL your energy use per govt control !!! Big Brother is watching!!! All under the guise of "we, we just trying to 'hep' youuu!" You need to buy a very expensive thermostat which allows Weather Bug with your permission to operate your home temperatures of be the most efficient, "helping" you save money. So if turned on and you want your home 72 degrees coolant the Govt and Weather Bug wants you to put the thermostat at 80, that is where the thermostat will force. It to go!!! It is optional now, but it is easy to see how intrusive Govt will implement this in the future!!!! You have been warned. Don't fall prey to this ploy!!!
