----------------------------

"This is the weather app that Apple should ship with every Mac by default..." - Arlo G

"Their support is amazing. For some reason it wasn't detecting location automatically, emailed over and was helped within 10 minutes." - Zac C

"This is lovely - I am pretty hesitant to install menubar apps normally, but this one more than deserves a spot up there to the right." - Stuart C

"Just sits up there, providing the temperature where you are along with a conditions indicator. Clicking on the temp brings up a beautiful forecast and expanded conditions including wind speed/direction and humidity. Simple but polished." - James K

"Simple but sweet. It's the little things in life.." - Gene F

Version 4.2.1
Review by Jared_P

UPDATED: Awesome weather app! - Update 2/6/15: The app has been fixed and now my “pro” features are there! Thanks for fixing the problem so quickly! Thought I was being let down by one of the coolest apps I use on a daily basis. Back up to five stars! Review from 2/4/15: I had paid for the supporter package for this app and after the last update, all the features I paid for are now gone. Restoring purchases doesn’t help. Seems like the developers of this app just want more money since I have to purchase the “pro” version to get my features back. I’m not purchasing the pro version of this app simply because it’s unjust that I already paid for something and I’m not grandfathered in.

Version 4.2.1
Review by bderry712

Still not working - Well after many years of support this is still not working. It won’t update its data, and there hasn’t been an update since February of 2015. I’ve reinstalled it and it still isn’t working. Also tried to give feedback and that process errored out saying server not found. So I guess they turned off the feedback server they were using and didn’t update the app to the new one. I own the Pro version from the Mac App Store, and it is still working. So I don’t know why they are not updating this App. If they are not updatiing it then remove it from the Mac App Store. Apple needs to clean out the stale apps on here. Just went to their site via the link for Degree Weather Support and clicked the iOS version and Apple App Store said “The item you’ve requested is not currently available in the U.S. store.” Hmm, seems they removed their iOS version. Google Play did something similar, “Sorry! This content is not available in your country yet. We’re working to bring the content you love to more countries as quickly as possible. Please check back soon.” Their OS X version is still linked to the Mac App Store free one. Which is not working so I guess they are defunct. Click the company name at the bottom and it comes to a very basic page that list one button, Contact Support.

Version 4.2.1
Review by WriterRic

Bait and Switch - This app claims to have an in-app-purchase for $1.99 that will unlock the additional features such as 5-day forecast. But when you click the button to upgrade, it takes you to the App Store listing for the “Pro” version which actually costs $2.99. There is, in fact, no way to buy the $1,99 in-app-purchase to unlock the features. This is an underhanded and dishonest practice and as such, I have deleted this app and will never download or purchase anything from this developer again.

Version 4.2.1
Review by OAW

Almost perfect! - UPDATE 4.2.1: The in-app purchase issue was quickly resolved. Everything works as advertised except this feature which I continue to report like a broken record: The “Automatically discover current location” feature STILL does not work. Clicking the checkbox DOES NOTHING. It makes no change to the location already listed. UPDATE 4.2: I previously made a $1.99 “Degrees Supporter” in-app purchase to enable the 5 day forecast. That appears to be non-function in this latest “upgrade” even after trying the “Restore Purchase” option multiple times. And the “Automatically discover current location” feature STILL does not work. UPDATE 4.0: Again it works great but the “Automatically discover current location” feature STILL does not work. UPDATE 3.02: Contrary to what is stated in the “What’s New” section, the “Automatically discover current location” feature still does not work. Other than that this is a great app. ORIGINAL: Does what it says it will do. For the most part. Current Location feature is simply not functional at all. Great icons though!

I live in Phoenix, but…. - The app worked flawlessly until today. It says it is 169F outside right now. The forecast is sunny and 185 by Sunday. We are used to the heat here but not quite like this!

Version 4.2.1
Review by TheBishop7

Used to Love Degrees - I liked this app so much that I decided to purchase the upgrade giving me a 5 day forecast. However, not long after the upgrade, the app became completely broken. No data seems to load at all, reinstalling does nothing, and the location services have multiple issues. I have sent feedback to the developer with no response. I am pretty upset with this app and I do not recommend it at all until it is fixed.
