Does not work!! This software has not been updated for a long time. It will download current conditions but will not give a forecast, nor show radar.

I give it two stars because of the fact that it used to work and it was quite good and it was much faster than Meteorologist. But now it does not.

Use Metro, it's free and it runs smoothly.

Please - will this ever be fixed again? I paid my shareware fees, and I'm left with a product that doesn't work (at least, here in Canada). It says "couldn't read forecast", but gives me a temperature reading, which sometimes appears correct, and sometimes is way off.

Seems semi-busted. While WeatherMenu works, it doesn't do it all the time - upon waking from sleep it displays ??? in the menubar and crashes when you try to manually update. Yet relaunch it again, and it works as normal.

The issue is frustrating enough (I use a laptop and sleep it multiple times a day) that for the time being I'm sticking to Meteorologist. The layout and graphics aren't as nifty, but it just works.

Developer is aware of the issue and trying to find a fix, if the forums have anything to say about it.

This app claims that it is -7 degrees in Shanghai, although it should be +24.

It is not a Cocoa app, so you can't display city names in other than MacRoman encoding, and also can't choose a font in a non-Western encoding.

Imperial junk.

While I've had problems (data feed, unexpected quits) with Weathermenu from time to time, I still find it the most usable of any weather-related menu bar out there. (I've paid for several of them.) Note: For those with 10.4 security update issues, I have not, however, updated from Panther to Tiger.

For those having problems with this app, I strongly encourage folks to check out the AfterTen forums. You can often find early releases that fix identified problems, tips/suggestions from users, and finally revision status from the developer.

The problem with this app is the lead time between fixes and releases. Although very good, the good only last for a little while. It is amazing that others can keep up and rewrite for the changes needed to receive the weather information correctly, but this Developer waits until the cows come home...they're still out to pasture.
