MUD Error-- it also does PPC --- and registration is now free for those that don't have OS access to the App Store.

Weatherman displays a small tabbed window for each site you want to see. I have this and Seasonality.

Seasonality tries to show all sites in one window. Seasonality keeps an archive of the places monitored, visible by graph up to a year (scrollable further back, if you've had it longer. Weatherman can display about a day's worth of "trend".

Weatherman gives you chill factors --- Seasonality doesn't.
Weatherman gives you alert messages --- Seasonality doesn't.

Weatherman has a list of cities to pick from to monitor. It makes set up easy, if you know the geography/ city names of the area you want to monitor (you'll need to go "out there" to get the info you'll need to enter for obscure places. Seasonality also offers "quick-pick" locations -- with the addition of being able see and select monitoring stations on the map.

Weatherman has the option to show a variety of animated maps, were the info is available. Seasonality has a satellite based stationary zoomable map.

Why the low rating? I don't like upgrades that DISABLE the product. Version 2.2.0 will disable itself if you run it on MacOS 10.6.6 or above. You must redownload the product from the AppStore to run it. I do not like downloading a "upgrade" that disables the product to force me to purchase it again.

That said, the price is fair on the AppStore, but I dislike these sorts of shenanigans.

Let's see --- one of the best weather UI's going is now FREE for all lesser OS folks. The developer has "bought in" to APPLE's marketing game (for survival perhaps?) for your less than $5 cost.

I guess you could spend $20 more for the closest competitor Seasonality. ;D

Gregm even for free I wouldn't use any garbage peddled from the CrapStore.

If I want to know the current I'll look outside my bloody window!

I love this app. 10 bucks is a bit steep for some reason as the stuff can be found for free within a browser. Beautiful, stable, cool app, great idea, expensive.
