Please remove the FREE designation from this app. It is not free and you only learn that after it's downloaded and launched by announcing that you have a few days to try, after which the subscription kicks in. No thanks.

Just by glancing at the pictures with heavy graphics and too much info, it's sure consumes a lot of of memory and cpu.

Excellent weather app. Very aesthetically pleasing. Regularly updated. I have used this for a long time on macOS and it causes me no issues. Recommended.
