Solid app, especially for the price!
I'm in the US, and I think this app does a good job of presenting relevant and accurate weather info for home users, in a variety of ways. That's quite good for a free app!
The ads are not too annoying. I got a good response from tech support in less than 24-hours, even though the problem resolved itself after I restarted my system (wrong date initially displayed for animated radar data).
I looked at ALL the other apps listed for keywords "weather radar" and this is NOT the best one. However, ALL the better ones currently in the app store cost money. This free app does 90% of what I want. It's not a pro app; not for weather enthusiasts. I just want to know whether I need more firewood this week! I figured it would be good for temporary, but for my casual use—after testing it a few days—I think I'll just keep it and save my dollars for a game or…I dunno…actually paying for iWork someday. (still using the Trial for the third year running, holding out for an update with some sort of value…;)
Well I downloaded this maybe two or three weeks ago. I JUST got it to open. I've rebooted my laptop several times since download and never once has it opened when i clicked on it. The main disappoint was that I couldn't even remove the unsuable app after download.
Now that its open and available, I've tried playing with it to get it set up. I enter 4 locations and 4 separate windows pop up for each location. THIS SHOULD BE IN ONE WINDOW! You should update the program so that I have one window with a tab reading locations and when I click on that tab, it displays all the locations I saved and then I should be able to click on whatever location and the information should be viewed on THAT ONE PAGE…NOT FOUR DIFFERENT PAGES.
My other main problem is that the current weather updates for each location shows up as 4 separate tabs on the head bar (can't think of correct name). It allows me to quit but then all four tabs close instead of solely closing the one tab I don't want up there.
I would enjoy all the other features if these things were fixed but for now, I'm downloading another weather app.
Also, It didn't locate my town. It located the country club in it but not the town…why?
Not sure what the problem was with others, but this app works fine now. What I like about this app is it sits in my top bar with the current temp and if I need more info I just click on the icon. I can get forecasts, hourly temps, radar, even video clips. There are embedded ads with this app, but I can live with that.
