Forecast accurate and has minor differences from the weather on the spot. Checked in 17 cities.

Could be really good but the fastest it can do weather updates is every 45 minutes. This makes it much less useful for me...fix that and it's nearly perfect.

I really like this menubar app and all the options it offers, have used it for some time. I don't have any of these complaints, and most have to do with your maitenance of your own machine. And fixes start with, Dump the preferences file. Who knows what else you are or are not doing. Never seen it hang. But I am tired of seeing small devs trashed here. Really tired of it. Get a life. Email him privately, this is a review site.

Paid for it then used CleanApp to delete every associated file. Total rubbish. Constant beach ball - not for me and can not recommend it.

Well, well. Just dumped this app and installed Seasonality Core. No more spinning beach ball, no more hangs and my computer is flying. Why the hell did I fall for this terrible, awful application. Don't go near this app. It is a CPU hog and a disaster constantly using bandwidth - searching, searching, searching....

Looks like they made an update to fix it with 4.2.5?

I don't get the negative ratings. Lord-Lightning makes a good point: with no trial, there is no way to know how a shareware app will work on one's system. Even broadly distributed and tested software occasionally conflicts with other installed software. The chance of conflicts or obscure bugs is even greater for apps by small developers.

Trial versions of software solve these potential problems. I'm frankly astonished at how many Mac users flush money away on the App Store. $2 here, $8 there, $10 for another, and pretty soon one has blown $100 on software they either can't use or don't like. Buyer beware: assume all app store apps SUCK unless you've tried them or are familiar with the developer's other apps.

In cases like this where you cannot see how to stop an app, go to Apps>Utilities>Activity Monitor>My Processes and find the running app. Select and press STOP.
Just a general tip… as I did not know of it for a long time.

No radar image? I'll pass and stick with Meteorologist.

Installed it yesterday on iMac 27" late 2009, newest OS. Compared several locations close to each other up here in Northern Norway. Difference in temperature almost 10 degrees C, local weather service survey only +/- 1 degree. Wanted to change location and the app ended up spinning in menue bar. Could not be terminated any more, had to delete and reboot... Not a Mac like experience. A pity, the first impression was not bad.

Solid weather program but it only updates weather data once every 45 minutes (or less often). This is ridiculous as weather changes much faster than that. Need to add update intervals to 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 45, and 60 minutes as a minimum. Good program other than that glaring omission.

I've been using Menuweather for awhile (replaced "Metologist" which was great but not updated). I mostly use it just to see the outside temperature and forecasts. But, right now I am sitting in my apartment in New York City waiting for the onset of one of the worst hurricanes in recent history, and Menuweather reports "light showers, overcast, cool, wind 19 mph". WTF?

MenuWeather is telling me it is 9 Deg C outside - the Australian Bureau of Meteorology AND Weatherzone are both teling me it is 4 Deg C outside. You guys are more than 100% out in your readings of current conditions. Your forecasts are totally unreliable and you can't even get the current conditions right. You have got to change your source of information - it is just made up. These are not readings from any reliable weather monitoring service. Others can get these readings right, why can't MenuWeather?
