it’s FREE folks - Like many who download apps and don’t bother to learn set up, I see a lot of negative reviews posted that potential users should take with a grain of salt. There is a learning curve, but there’s no contest as to Weatherman’s accuracy compared to other offerings. I trashed Meteorologist, a mac staple, for Weatherman because its current developer can’t seem to get the bugs fixed. Before you spam AfterTen's virtually full-featured FREE piece of software, take the time to set it up properly. In fact, I liked the FREE offering so much, I purchased the paid version. One nit; make the weather icons clearer and sharper for retina displays.
This weather app is not accurate - For my location the temputure is not accurate to the weather app on my iPhone.

Good app. - Been using this app even before the App Store existed, and it’s always worked well for me. Lots of customization options and fairly accurate reporting.
The best for ME!! - I live in the Greater Los Angeles area so weather is always good. All I really need is temperature trend and, in winter, chance of rain info. But, if you are a weather nerd, (as I am) I love the radar and long-range forecasting. The best option for weather, imho, is Firefox’s “ForecastFox”. But, if you don’t want to use yur browser, WeatherMan Lite can’t be beat.
Busy Idle bug, do NOT use ESPECIALLY on laptops - This software worked well for quite a while (since I had to give up Son of Weather Grok), but a while ago it started running my wife’s CPU to 100%, which is clearly a major problem - especially on a laptop, where it kills the battery quickly. Recently it started doing it on my Air as well. Time to look for another program. :-( Prior to this problem, this was a 3.5 star program - adequate, not great. Update: Still a problem as of version 2.7.6, and I've finally gotten rid of it. I'm now using Meteorologist 2.0.5, which is free (google for it, I don't think it's on the app store). Meteo is also not great, but it's good... and so far, it hasn't screwed up.
Don’t bother - Great UI - lots of windows to cater to weather nerds and one easy to read one for those who want a simpler UI. But it stubbornly refuses to update to anything but the default city…which is in Michigan. ?!? I live in Joshua Tree, California. Needless to say, when rain is forecast for three days straight with temps in the mid-50’s F, you KNOW something isn’t right. I even tried changing the location several times, and it never worked. Plus, you can only change the default city - if you try to add more, it just changes the default location. Ugh. Steer well clear of this turkey until the devs fix its glaring flaws.
