The iOS version has potential but the GUI layout is a little awkward compared to both the other available options and the macOS and tvOS versions. It’s also buggy. The app was reluctant to change locations, agonizingly slow when it did, and often required restarts on both my iPhone and iPad. And the subscription levels are very expensive, especially because you need a separate subscription for your desktop and iOS versions. Strangely, however, the tvOS version is a one time purchase at $3.99. While its GUI is also a little awkward and occasionally inconsistent, it is at least reasonably priced. If they fix the bugs which cause lag and give it a reasonable pricing structure (one time fee preferred), I’d definitely use it. Until then, it’s not worth the significant cost.
Good design, good customization, full data set, and frequent weather updates available (optional to update more than once/hr). Great support. I have it running on my phone, iPad, and Mac.
Extremely customizable so I can see what is important to me shown how I like to see it on each of my devices.
I use the Apple TV version every day. Thought I’d look to see if there was a phone version. And there was. Love this
I love the iOS app, as it is full featured and easy to customize, however, once I configure the watchOS app, it works fine forts few hours and then it just displays 0 degrees in the complication. If I access the app, the data is correct, so I assume the issue is with the complication itself. The problem occurs in other compilations as well. This has been an issue since I purchased the app…this would otherwise be a 5 star review. As of now, I no longer use Forecast Bar because I am one who needs a reliable watch app. Please fix this, or I will definitely not renew my subscription when it expires.
I was a long time user of another app that decided to mess up a good thing a couple of years ago and completely change their UI and UX, and offer no support when queried, which lost them this customer. Since then, I’ve been looking for a new app. I work in public safety, and it’s beyond being a weather geek that I know what the weather is somewhere in my jurisdiction, and what it is predicted to do. And I like to use my watch to do it. (I never said I wasn’t a weather geek...). After two years of looking for something that updated reliably and proved to be accurate, with a customizable UI so that I’m looking at data that is relevant to me, I found it. Forecast Bar. As far as support - I’ve emailed them a couple of times with questions about how to do something and have received responses within minutes - and from a real person, not a bot. Spend the money, get the app - you will not be disappointed.
Beware before you pay for this app. Watch complications are supposed to be a paid feature but they don’t work. They just display “0” all the time and never update. Developer has been unresponsive about fixing fir 5+ months.
Would be nice if when you choose to enable the date that it also shows the day of the week like for example Monday or Tuesday as well as including the date such as “Monday June 1st 2021” that would be nice!
Had issue with subscription but it was resolved.
