Version 1.0.1
Review by Amit Jain 2011

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.

Review by DC-CA

Useful addition to my Mac menu bar - love the new space-saving option! - Accurate and nice looking - I like having the weather and alerts in my menu bar. I’m happy to have the new option to just have the temp in the menu bar - while I likes the condition icon there too, I need more space in my menu bar for all of the other items I keep there.

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.
