The “Apple Editor” must be rich to give this the Editor’s choice award! SUBSCRIPTION INTENSIVE! BEWARE the little clues on the App Store page, like “sign up”(for this, that, or the other feature) or “auto-renewing subscription” These guys want IN YOUR POCKET MONTHLY just to show Cloud Cover in the Radar window, or a Satellite view, or wind speeds, or weather fronts, or 13 other information features that are FREE in most other weather applications. GREEDY! Let the buyer BEWARE: Features that require monthly subscription: Cloud Cover Satellite Storm Cells Tropical Storms Active Alerts Active Warnings Lightning Strikes Wildfires Fronts Temperature Wind Speed Wind Direction Humidity Dew Point Visibility
I did not order
when I purchased this app, I did not expect to be nagged to Upgrade. I actually paid for the program with my focus to get away from all of the free programs that are constantly trying to sell you something. I also do not like the Radar display. If you turn on the motion it only shows one hours activity of the Radar, where many of the free programs show two or more hours of activity. The Radar also does not have the option to show future projected activity. This is definately not what I expected.
The iOS app is great, but the macOS app needs some polishing. Opening the main window doesn't create a dock icon which leads to some pretty confusing window management. The status bar icon interacts with hidden status bars in a broken way. Lots of little issues that could really use some polishing and attention.
After the snarky fun, I changed the setting to professional and went premium. Pretty much everything you need in a weather app including watch support and cloud sync with iOS app.
Love this app, however there is an issue with my iMac where the Mini Window appears at the top of the screen and will not go away! It only disappears when I quit the app. Hope this gets fixed. Otherwise would be five stars.
At a cost of $14.95 for the app, I was shocked that there were two additional "tiers" at a considerable cost for additional functionality - which frankly should be included in the base cost (example - lightning notifications). For an app that seems to be the darling of the editors - there should be other information that are provided by other apps - such as: smog levels, allergy / pollen, air quality etc. For the cost - clearly not worth it Other issues: 1) the app does not seem to open at login as per the setting. 2) when I open the main panel by clicking on the small details pain, the smaller panel does not disappear, partially covering the main panel (thus blocking some of the information)
Be it the snarky attitude or a pleasant professional attitude, the program is always quite thorough in the presentation of the weather!
It's a good app. Their subscription model is overpriced and the occasional ad for it is annoying.
Best and most humorous I have seen across decades.
