WeatherPop Advance lets you keep in touch with what it's like outside right now.
  • Let the current conditions and temperature in your menu bar serve as a gentle reminder to get outside, go for a walk, and stop working so hard.
  • Just type the city in which you live (if we find more than one match, we'll show you a list to choose from), and the current conditions will update every fifteen minutes in your menu bar.
  • WeatherPop will also remember the last five locations you have selected.

stopped working completely for me today. Goodbye Weatherpop, you were fun while you lasted. I'm off to find a replacement.

Version 2.6.1

The WeatherPop/Glu website seems to have been taken down now. That's good if they are no longer going to support they shouldn't sell. The closest replacement I've found is 'Meteo', a free and open-source utility. It's not as straight-forward and user-friendly as Weatherpop was. I miss the old Weatherpop menubar icon pop-down that showed all the local data with one click, and in its latest revision even showed a local radar image in the pop-down. It was great.

If anybody finds anything better, or close, I'd like to hear about it.

Bright Blessings,

You might like WeatherDock. Free, and very versatile.


WeatherDock seems to indeed be a worthy successor. Thanks!

I really loved this app and really hate that the developer has stopped supporting it. It no longer displays the correct info and ever since I switched to Leopard my logs would several error lines when Weather Pop would call out for data. Features, Ease of Use and Value I rate as a 4, but Stability and Main Rating I have to give a 1. It's a real shame when developers run off.

The WeatherPop developers, Ben and Lisa, claim a hacking of their work and loss of historical data. WeatherPop used to be an EXCELLENT utility with frequent version updates and response to weather data source glitches. Unfortunately, it has not been updated since at least Dec. 2007 according to their own website, and has ceased to be a useful utility because it no longer seems able to obtain weather data from, particularly, weather.gov. It used to be a great little utility but I no longer use it because it is so unreliable as to be easier to look out the window or go the weather.gov website myself for data. I do hope it will return to its former glory, but at this point I am rapidly becoming doubtful. I can not recommend it.

WeatherPop is really buggy, and the developer does not answer emails. Bugs I've found so far, in just a few days use... 1) Didn't automatically register after I paid, 2) Weather details not accurately downloaded from source, 3) Weather source preferences do not work, 4)Frequent crashes & freezes. Sorry to pick on a small developer, but this app should be avoided.

There's a to like about WeatherPop, it's very slick and informative. There's only one problem with it, which makes it totally useless for me. Any weather-reporting software is only as good as the sources it polls, and the one source it uses for my town (Wunderground, no matter how I set the Preferences, and I live in a reasonably large near-metropolitan area) gives wildly inaccurate readings. Right now it's in the high 40's outside (and this is reported fairly accurately by the Weather widget, bearing in mind the nearest reporting station is a few miles from here in a different microclimate), but WeatherPop tells me it's 38.

This little app is really sweet......gives all the weather info that most folks need for their selected locations. It's got a nice, well thought out and user friendly interface, too....really easy to configure.
At $8, it's well worth the money. I got it for $4.95 from Macupdate's daily special(whoopee, such a deal!)

Just installed 2.4 and it seems to work okay. Here is a list of 2.4 changes from the Yahoo Group.

What's new in this release:
* Weather.gov source problems fixed
* Wundeground.com source problems fixed
* Units selector for "Metric/Standard" fixed
* Low-level aspects of WeatherPop have been updated to fix crashing/slowness problems
