I have always been interested in weather but have wanted a forecast app for all three platforms. Forecast Bar provides for all Apple platforms and allows the choice of two excellent sources of data - either The Weather Company or Dark Sky. The interface is very configurable and is essentially the same on a Mac or iPhone. There are separate subscriptions for the MacOS and iOS platforms (the iOS subscription covers Apple Watch) but their rates aren't prohibitively expensive. I really like what Forecast Bar has done. It might be nice to someday be able to choose from multiple locations on WatchOS but that's such a small point as to make it a non-issue. Great job Higher Bar!
This app is visually the best. It takes the data from Dark Sky and then outs it in an incredibly simple yet customizable package. Two significant issues; 1. Radar is very slow to load and 2. Alerts don't work; you get alerts but when you open them they always say Null. Fix these issues and this is the best weather app, until then it makes it difficult to use.
This is the best. No gimmicks. It’s very clean and accurate. Has a widget and great Apple Watch app. Couldn’t find one that checks all the boxes. I am really impressed. No one asked me to give this review. Just want to give good feedback do it gets downloaded more and they continue support for it. Try it.
The interface and functionality are wonderfully detailed, both on the phone and my watch. I love the customization and widget functionality. The weather is very accurate and I love the alert customization. My only gripes, which sadly, are deal breakers for me are 1) The radar is very slow to load compared to other apps such as My Radar and The Weather Channel. And 2) I can't use this app on my apple watch (series 3) without having to connect to my phone's Bluetooth! Every other weather app I've used allows me to use them without my phone needing to be present, why doesn't this one! If you make this app standalone usable with the apple watch, I will give it five stars and make it my go-to weather app.
It’s ok, used to be better. Huge difference in weather between dark sky and the weather company. And on dark sky the weather alerts don’t give any information. Reads (null). As an update; I’ve emailed support twice with no response. Time to move on I think.
My free trial has ended and now it’s no longer loading anything, I love the details this app has and I wished that there was an option to turn on the badge on the app itself and not needing the MacOS for iCloud as I don’t use iCloud. Otherwise great app! :)
I like the app but when I go to check the weather on my watch it won’t load I have to open the app on my phone then open it on my watch for it to refresh which defeats the purpose I really like the app but gonna have to find a different one due to this.
I get weather alert notifications and when I go to read the notification it only reads (null). Been some wild weather the last few days and Forecast Bar sent a lot of alerts and all just said (null). My other weather apps all included the alert text. I have the Premium subscriptions for iPhone, Mac and Apple Watch too. Support emails I’ve sent in the Forecast Bar app on iPhone has never been responded. Not a good sign. So, I’ve deleted the app on iPhone, Mac and Apple TV and canceled the subscriptions, yeah with a year to go on all. Bye non-responding support. Sorry I wasted my money.
After using several weather apps, this is the one that is most accurate, timely and informative. However much info you want, or not, this is THE one. Graphically pleasing and easy to use. It has proven invaluable these last few days, especially, during this period of rough weather.
Love the fact that I can customize everything I wish to see on the widget, including symbols. Neat and simple way to see current and upcoming weather events. Well worth the small yearly subscription fee.
