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!

Very Convenient and Reminds me to Pay Attention to the Weather! - Weather Dock is always there with up-to-date weather forecasts ; it’s hard to forget to check the weather when the little reminder is jumping up and down in the doc to get your attention. It’s done tastefully; not aggravating. So I’m very pleased so far; no complaints! And I also like the cloud, rain, and sunshine, etc. graphics. Fun! It truly is very helpful. I find that often friends will be saying one thing about the weather forecast different than what Weather Doc is saying; however, it always turns out Weather Doc is “right on”! It’s so nice to have this service at my fingertips whether on my laptop or phone. Thanks Weather Dock; Good Job!
Great App - Simple, but informative - I did the upgrade as I like to check multiple locations a week out. Living in the mountains of Colorado, weather conditions are an important factor. I check several sites before traveling in winter conditions. It is easy to add locations and then quickly check them out.
Like the Weather App for Your Desktop - I wanted something similar to the Weather app that’s on the iPhone and this was a good one! Added it to the dock on my MacBook and, once I knew it worked, upgraded so I could add other locations. Works smoothly and doesn’t seem to cause drag on other apps. Like the little animation and temperature that appears in the dock.
Good except that it keeps making me restore my purchase - Please stop constantly checking the license. If I purchased the app already and activated it, there shouldn’t be any reason that you constantly “phone home” after that. As it is now, because I use 2 apple accounts for purchases (work and personal), I have to keep restoring my purchase every day because you are constantly trying to verify the license even after I already successfully restored it. Yours is the only app that does this.
Perfect except tray temp doesn’t work - I really like this app. It is simple, gives the essential information without a dozen confusing charts, has a detailed week forcast on one screen, works in my remote area on an island off the coast of Panama, has Farenheight or Celsius options, numerous languages, and with the paid version, can switch to almost any location in the world. My only reason for giving it less than five stars is that the icon in the tray is advertised to provide constant outside temperature. Mine says -9999 and nothing else The icon does report on general conditions like “partly cloudy” but no temperature. I’ll still keep the app in hopes this glitch can be resolved. I submitted the request for assistance two day ago. I am still waiting on a response.
