Cool app with alerts. - I really like the alert feature in the app. The weather conditions in the menu bar changes to a red triangle when there is an alert. Then I can expand the menu icon to see the Radar map or goto the detailed website to see the weather/alert details by clicking specific area on the expanded app.

Review by Patrick_H

Not much info - WeatherBug’s iOS app is one of my favorite weather apps on my phone. It provides a lot of information, even a “Spark” feature for nearby lightning. I had high hopes that the Mac app would be similar, but it provides less information than any weather app I’ve used. The Mac app shows the temperatures forecast for the next 12 hours. It has an icon indicating the overall condition (clear, cloudy, etc.). There is a small radar display. That’s it. Although there is a preference area to set your choice of wind units and pressure units, it doesn’t show current or forecast for wind or pressure. It doesn’t indicate the chance of rain, there is no detailed hourly forecast, no 7- or 10-day forecast, no indication of sunrise and sunset times, and no description of today’s weather. It indicates the current temperature and conditions in the menubar, but many other free and inexpensive apps do that, while also providing a lot more information.

Bug: Cannot Remove Autostart - I’ve used Weatherbug for years on both Windows and Mac computers, and it’s one of the top (free) weather apps out there. Better than many paid apps, too (of which I have several). However, I have noticed that unchecking the “Launch at Startup” option does not prevent the app from starting up every time I boot my Mac. The app is, of course, a front-end to Weatherbug’s web site, which is chock full of information, forecasts and warnings. However, there are times when I’d just like to see this information in the menu bar without having to launch a web browser. It is what it is, though. That’s how the app is designed. I just wish I could easily (without having to tear apart launchctl) disable to autostart.

VERY Disappointing! - Tried to use this free app but unfortunatly it requires the user to sign in with a social media account in order to get it to work. NOT FREE if you require my user info. DELETED.

Not much to it. - 5 stars because it does what it says and I’m hoping to see more out of this app in the future.

Love Weatherbug !!! - Ok, Let’s start off be saying it is not as great for the Mac as the PC. But, It works wonderful and smooth. The features it has for a free app is WONDERFUL ! The weather is accurate, it has every location available, the radar works great and it shows you the temp on your menu bar without clicking on it ! Most apps charge for that feature. Yes there are ads. Like every free app. Hopefully that will change when they come out with their upgrade app for a fee. I don’t get what the negative rating reviewers are saying. I have it installed on 3 of my MACS. No problems. Maybe they are running old MAC os’s or something. Oh well. All I know is Weatherbug seems like a good app to me.

Won’t Boot Up - I installed the app, but it won’t boot up. Nothing happens. I tried restarting my computer and still nothing. I guess I’ll go back to viewing Weatherbug on my web browser.
