Surprise, surprise, surprise. (Quick, who said that? No googling.) Orbis is now working for me. I've done a clean install of Mojave and clean installing most apps. I'll be dog-gone if Orbis is not working now. For what it does it is pretty good. Other apps do more (Forecast Bar is my main weather app.) but for a second app it is now my preferred.

Still FUBAR on El Capitan. Bought it again. Also just refunded. Again. A shame. It’d be worth more than $2. As it’s been on past OSs (now El Capitan) it crashes on opening. After a couple crashes, and deleting all related files, it worked once and was the epitome of Apple elegance, until I tried opening Preferences. How Apple continues to allow this app is beyond belief. I suppose since it's only $2 most folks just blow it off.

No longer works on OS X 10.11.4. I emailed the author about a month ago, which has gone unanswered. Am I correct to assume that this software is no longer developed or supported?

Like so many crashing upon start on Yosemite. I finally got around to installing it on Mavericks and it works well enough. But it is lacking one of the best features of MenuWeather! Best I can tell Orbis doesn't give hourly breakdowns of forecasts. It's a step back for crying out loud! But worse is the fact the developer has been totally silent while continuing to take folks' money.

Used to be great and stable (when it was MenuWeather) - Now as of 5.0 with the Orbis version it's buggy. Perhaps should still be in beta?

Interface is too dark and not very readable, IMO. Not a lot of options to change anything. Very glad WeatherDock still seems to work lately.

I was also very disappointed after update, but noticed that if you leave unchecked 'current location' -option, everything works very fine after that! I tried to set Orbis to get 'auto located' in Mac's privacy but this doesn't help. But after unchecked that early mentioned all is ok. That note what Orbis showed after every chrash meant that program couldn't find locations at all.

Extremely disappointed in the update. Continues to crash upon launch. When it does load it crashes when I try to open preferences. Have been a satisfied Menu Weather user for a long time... What can I say but frustrated and disappointed!

Renamed Orbis 5.0 on the app store and I received a free update. Works great on my computers. UI is more in line with Yosemite.

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....

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.
