WeatherSnoop is simply the best weather station interface software out there. My Davis Vantage Pro 2 station came in a bundle with software from Davis, but it pales in comparison to WeatherSnoop. It works seamlessly with my Davis USB console which is wirelessly connected to my sensor suite outside. The instrument display that displays all the information is intuitive and visually pleasing. You can customize graphs of various data plots, giving the program a polished look. WeatherSnoop 3 allows you to view and access some settings (like archive interval) which are built into the weather station console itself. The developer is VERY open to feature requests and was very helpful when I had questions initially. When new features are added, any questions I have for the developer are answered promptly. I am a weather "hobbyist" but I feel like a weather pro with this software. I send my data to various websites such as Weather Underground, CWOP, Weather Bug and Personal weather station. There are a few other sites to share with as well. I highly recommend this software.

Several days of Internet searches resulted in my selection of WeatherSnoop 2 for my iMac in September 2013. WeatherSnoop was the best choice to replace my Windows 7 based Davis software. And with the release of WeatherSnoop 3, it is off the charts. It provides a robust interface and just gets better with every version. The WeatherSnoop interface to my Davis Vantage Pro 2 provides data to Weather Underground, Weather Bug, CWOP and most recently Weather Cloud. All data is stored in a SQLite database and allows data extraction for your specific use. Contrary to some of the negative comments about this software, it has been very stable even after power outages that would corrupt other databases. The developer responses to questions have been professional and timely.

WeatherSnoop is my favorite of all the weather applications I have seen and/or tried. It just works well with no extras to install or any other hassles. The developer has been super responsive to any issues or suggestions. This package has had several great new releases over the last year and I expect many more nice improvements. I know the developer has great plans for future functionality and his upgrade pricing is very modest.

WeatherSnoop supports many different weather stations - mine is a Vantage Pro 2 using the Weather Envoy as the interconnection to my Mac Mini running Mavericks. WeatherSnoop supports all the extra sensors (solar/UV, leaf wetness and temp, soil moisture and temp, etc. so it is a very complete package.

I upload my data to Weather Underground, CWOP and WeatherBug and will probably add WeatherCloud now that the new version supports that.

I would definitely recommend this to any one with one of the supported weather stations.

I'm using Weathersnoop with Rainwise CC3000 and it works better than many of the Windows apps that support the CC3000. A few teething problems to start but really great tech support and the app now runs reliably

The trial version of WeatherSnoop Lite ran fine for 3 hours, after I paid it only ran for 4 before losing connection with the weather station (a Davis Vantage Vue working through a serial/usb converter). WeatherTracker runs for months on the same computer with no issues. Problem was reported to the developer four days ago and I've gotten no reply. Don't waste your money on this product.

Good solid app - but it would be awesome if it had more skins.

Opinion changed! I'll give it one star now, after WeatherSnoop stopped working two weeks ago. It no longer talks to my Ambient Weather 1090, and I have tried repeatedly to reach them, with no response. I can't even get their help forum to allow me to sign in, that seems to no longer work (as well as the password reset feature).

Gets better, like all the new features, works out of the box and no silly kext files to mess with.

Not sure if it will down load the existing historical records from my Irox weather station, which is a must for me, as the computer is available 24hrs.

Found my extra sensors no problem.

Graphs nice and easy to understand.

Will have to consider ditching my own homebrew software!!!

Pros:
Works out of the box.(Irox Pro)
Nice features (weather report)

Cons:
Metric mode, the reports and data custodian show imperial not metric despite the display panels showing metric.

No way to retrieve and history, so if there is a power failure / system down, the 3000 odd records in the weather station are lost.

Personally, don't like the display's would prefer a choice

All of these concerns have since been addressed in subsequent versions of the software.

This is great software for "weather nuts" with Oregon Scientific weather stations. You can't beat the price & the support! I've been using it with my Oregon Scientific WMR100N for a couple of months now, sending data to WeatherUnderground. I would like an easy way to get the data from the MySQLite db it creates into a spreadsheet, but for now I copy & paste from WeatherUnderground.

I noticed a problem with it sending data to WeatherUnderground when the air &/or dew point temperatures fall below 32ºF. I e-mailed the developer & he quickly responded & has fixed the problem.
