Great - And here’s why - First of all, it does what I wanted - puts the temperature on the top bar, not the dock. I keep my dock hidden and I just want to glance up and see what is the temperature. But it does soooo much more: Clicking on the icon gives more information about the weather at glance than I could have asked. Sunrise/sunset? How cool is that? The expected highs and lows for five days. An easy drop down to see my other locations. In preferences, the ability to drag and drop locations into the order you want. Expanded view gives the radar picture. Very clear and logical layout and UI. AND, when I had a problem downloading it (turned out to be an Apple problem, not an app problem), the developer was VERY responsive. Then when I had a pilot error by not realizing that searching for locations required me to hit return (too much time on Google that serves up the choices while you type), he again responded promptly. I have a lot of weather apps as it is a crowded field (I also like Accuweather for its "25 minutes until the rain stops" and longer range forecast), but this is my desktop app and I am impressed and loving it (and I have looked at just about all of them).
Extremely Annoying Pestering - I usually start off with the free version and evaluate the App and see if I am going to find it useful and does it do what it says. From the first the App kept putting up the splash screen to upgrade and offer other offerings. This happened every day and sometime it seems like more then once a day. If I wanted the paid versionI woud have bought it, without being Pestered and having the offer thrown in my face. From the start there were a few small things I wanted to evaluate, before putting money in an upgrade, but I needed to know if I could tolerate the small imperfections or if they were going to bother me. I had already decided if I liked the App I was going to upgrade, but the annoying pestering requesting I upgrade I found intolerable and the programmers were pushing too hard for my dollars, and not concdrned if I liked it or not. I understand part of this problem is Apples® as there is no way to tryout an App (say a one month trial and if you do not like the app it goes away, but no if I do not like it is stays on my list forever. If you are going to push the upgrade Why Not Just drop the free version with ads and offer only the upgrade version ONLY!

Sweet Little App - Weather Dock sits in your task bar with a nice little icon showing current temperature and a sketch of the weather. Click it and it pops up a page with current weather details and forecasts for a week, starting today. An hourly forecast for today and the next two days is one click away, as is the ability to change the location it refers to, if you need to know the weather in more than one location. I use that capability when I’m traveling, to set it to the city I’m in rather than home. Preferences let you tune the task bar icon’s info and other options. It’s a nice little app that I use every day and I’m happy to have it.
if u want top screen icon; this ain’t it! - I used weatherbug for years and was happy with it. Then Apple updated from “Lion” to “High Sierra” making the weatherbug app useless. Downloaded this app but the icon goes DOWN in the “tool bar” and not up at the top of the screen where I wanted it! If your tool bar is “hidden” you have to scroll down on the cente pad (one motion), scroll right til you find the app (2nd motion), click on it (3rd motion), then it opens up a window in the MIDDLE of what ever “page” you’re on. Fine, all that to see the weather? WAIT! we’re not done yet: when you click on the red button (upper left corner) to close the app, it then ….wait for it….DISAPPEARS! As in, completely! Sometimes it goes back to the tool bar; sometimes it goes away completely! Really? Why can’t you just have an icon at the TOP of your screen that actually shows the outside temp at your location? Is that a LOT to ask??
I got a notification every couple of hours to upgrade - This is a really nice app. I gave it one star because every couple of hours I got a notification asking me to upgrade to the paid version. I really, don’t like that so I ended up deleting the app. I’ll use one that does not ask me for money every couple of hours.
Mr. Ted Parham - Great App. I love it. to me this is the best Desk top weather app yet.
Solid App and provides vital information in a short form - Weather dock to me is a godsend. I live in a highrise and do not know what the weather is outside. It helps me dress for rain or snow. It also help me to decide to put the rubber feet on the dog when it is needed. The product is solid not like other applications. No slow down on my system nor does it interfere with the operation of my computer. In other words it plays nicely with everybody.
