Very accurate weather information supplied by The Weather Company.
The app tries to get your default weather forecast location via Location Services or, if it is not approved, by IP address. If that also fails (for example if you have a VPN) then the app cannot determine the weather forecast location automatically. Then you must enter your location manually.
If you experience any issues please contact us directly using the "Contact Us" button/menu item and specify your forecast location.

Nationwide and local info quickly - I like this app because it works well, and is updated often. I use it to keep up with the wind and the rain, because things change very fast during “winter” in California — rain and wind and chilly 2-3 days a week, sunny and 75 degrees the other days — impossible to make plans (even what to wear) without this app. I need to tie down some of my plants if the wind is more than 20 mph, and this app is indispensible for following quickly changing conditions — and I can keep the info visible in my dock at all times. In addition, I can quickly see what’s going on with my kids on the east coast (blizzards, sunny, 12 degrees, 45 degrees).. I just click back and forth in the area where I’ve listed their various cities. I love it. Good Job by the developers.
Need iPad App that will run on my Mac !! - I have several iPad apps that do a pretty good job of weather reporting. Too bad none of them will run on my MacBook Pro. This app is not really useful at all, and I certainly wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. Especially not to a friend. Someone REALLY needs to develop some weather apps for Macs & laptops similar to those for iPad and iPhone. So. No. I’m not pleased with this one at all, and even less pleased with half a dozen others that I have tried over the last couple of years. This one is still on my MacBook (unlike the others),, but only because I want to have SOMETHING no matter the lack of quality or usefulness. . . .

Almost ideal - For the most part I like the app, it pretty much does what I need (weather in a number of different cities), but there is one big issue (for me) that keeps it from being a 5. When I Cmd-Tab into the app it does not bring up a window showing the weather. I have to go up to the menu bar and select Window -> Weather. As soon as the app gets focus it should open the window. Why else woud I Cmd-Tab into it?
Comprehensive..and good-looking, too - Everything you need to know about local weather and presented in a handsome format.
The jury is still out... - I have jusst started using this app so I'm still evaluating it. My first impression is a positive one so only time will tell if I find it worthwhile. I'll report back again with a "thumbs up" if warranted.
Quick detailed info - I actually keep two copies of this app available for ease of reference to two locations important to me. Extremely handy to have this information at my fingertips.
Would be 5 stars with radar - The dock icon shows current status and temp, which is fantastic. Hourly forecast very helpful. Adding radar would make this easily a 5-star rating.
