Glad to have my old friend back! - MenuWeather was one of my favorite Mac App Store apps. So I was definitely missing it while Orbis was being developed. It’s a point zero release, and I’ve had a few random quits. I’m sure with a bunch of users reporting bugs, it’ll get sorted out as well as additional features and customization options. But this developer really deserves praise and recognition for not charging for existing MenuWeather owners! This was a free update for us for what looks like a complete rewrite, renaming/rebranding. When was the last time you saw that happen? It's amazing, and I am grateful.
Quits on Launch, repeatedly - Was looking forward to this update. MenuWaather was my favorite menu bar weather App, until the hangs started. Finally, moved on. . .but was excited to see that it was coming back and had my fingers crossed. Sadly, crashes at launch launch for me most of the time. If it does run, it always crashes when accessing the Preferences. I hope others have better luck and I’ll keep watching. I’d really like to see this App working!

App is not working - The app does not load the weather. All I see is a red exclamation mark in the menu bar which I cannot close or manipulate in any way unless I reboot my machine. The developer's twitter feed states that they are aware of the issue and are working on a fix, but that was a posting from September 14, and it is now December 1. There is no mention of this issue on the App Store page, so I am posting this review in the hope that others don't end up in the same situation I did. I've requested a refund through Apple in the meantime.
Keeps getting error when starting up - app just displays a red exclamation mark and won't show anything. Seems like the app doesn't get updated very much. Will be looking for a new app.
App is dead on 10.15 - Sorry dev, you need to jump in here and fix this or just pull your app from the store. Stuck at "Loading..." in the menu bar and no way to gracefully cancel or quit it. I have to go hunting in the task list and kill the process.
Great App, great design, totally stopped working. - I love this app, but it’s not completely stopped working and the feedback email just bouces. I guess Evan has abbanded the App along with everyone that paid for it. Too bad.
10.5 getting red ! or if you ever do. - I get a red ! and the best solution is to delete the app and reinstall from App store. Fixed!
