I use Clear Day from the menu bar, only symbol and temperature showing. As long as I do not "click" on the menu symbol I do not get an accurate / reliable information. As soon as I do that and though force to update the data the information is pretty much correct.
Why doesn't it update by itself continuously in the background? No matter how long I wait for an auto-update, as long as I don't unfold the menu bar dialog no correct update is performed. Otherwise it would be a fine feature perfectly satisfying me needs. Sleek sober little app in menubar supplying all information I desire...
Animations are of little use for me...

I've tried a lot of these weather apps. Problem is, the results are only as good as the weather service to which each one subscribes, and an otherwise mediocre program + an accurate and reliable service gives more satisfactory results than a great program + a lousy service. In the case of this one, it is giving me temperature readings approximately 20 degrees too high (I live in Southern California, if you live in central Iowa your results may be very different). So it's hard to review these programs per se. In this case I don't blame the developer for the bad results, but the result is the same -- for me this program is useless. And it's a great example of why users should be able to demo-test programs before purchasing from the Apple Store. As soon as I launched this program for the first time I realized I had wasted my money.

It's certainly a pretty app, but this pattern of "rename the app to get people to purchase it again" isn't something I'm going to reward.

The update is free to current users and adds several features people often requested in reviews. Certainly a stand-up move by the developers. Good move on the name change too; name became too generic with similarly named apps.

After some days testing in Northern Norway:
The animation feature is nice, but I barely use it. I have a better screen saver... :-)
Wile the degree of temperature difference to local metrological service remains small the symbols for cloud coverage are not that accurate. Had full blown storm and heavy clouds all day - symbol showed "sun". Wind speed alarm on the other side was correct despite displaying 2 times less than the measured speed.
And I have a suggestion. A correction for conditions above the Arctic Circle would be fine. A bit confusing to see the sun-symbol while the sun actually is not even above the horizon up here. The localisation based symbol for "sun under horizon" would be useful and would allow it to achieve paid app status even more.

Fantastic experience!
I tried out halv a dussin other weather applications in the recent days, but they never really were able to find the place where I live. In addition the temperatures of the alternative places around me differed a lot. Some programs even simply shot themselves down. No Mac like experience.
But this product is definitely worth the money. Quick, easy and comprehensive installation. Beautiful animation especially in full screen mode. But for me the menue bar will do. Completely satisfied so far. The only little flaw is the accuracy of the pin on the satellite map, it is placed somewhere in the middle of the Arctic Sea.
Installed on iMac 27" late 2009, latest OS.

In my opinion the half-star rating is unfair. For me, the application does work without problems and the movies by which it presents the weather look very nice (although they could be better in a higher resolution on a big screen such as on a 27" iMac). The maps also present a lot of information.

Is it the best (most detailed and scientific )weather application? No - if you want to know what the weather will be at 11:00 AM on the next weekend. There are more detailed weather apps for that.

Does it present the weather with nice eye candy? Yes - if you run it on an iPad or a Mac you can leave it on and give you an impression of the weather as a nice relaxing movie.

I am always leery of a developer's website being on youtube or some non-descript web page.

They really should have a useable website.
