Weatherman Lite, also free, is a very good replacement for WeatherDock. You can download it for Lion at the Mac App Store.

The multitude of complaints are primarily comparing the Mac version to the PC version. Let's just focus on what this program offers. It is the simplest and most elegant program if what you need is a very good checkbook program with some budgeting capabilities. I was a Quicken for Mac user for many years and hesitated to upgrade to Quicken Essentials because of all the bashing it was receiving in user reviews. I noted that there are a number of professional reviewers that give it very high marks. In any event, since the new Mac OS X Lion will not support Quicken for Mac, I was forced to make a change from Quicken for Mac. I decided to buy Quicken Essentials and try it out (there is no trial version, but Intuit has a pretty liberal return policy). The program exceeded my expectations in virtually every area. Importing of my old Quicken for Mac file was flawless and fast. So, if your needs are like mine, take the plunge. I still believe you won't do better elsewhere. (BTW, the current version of Quicken Essentials is v1.5.4, which added a number of new features and supports check printing, unlike most of the other Mac finance programs. References elsewhere to Quicken 2011 are for the PC version).

The program no longer imports recipes from web pages. Tried it on two different Macs to no avail. I suspect that the recent MAC OS update may be the culprit, maybe a recent Safari upgrade. Worked fine until recently.

I like the new features, but it still takes forever to start up.

Crashes every time I try to open the file (running latest SNow Leopard on an Intel iMac).

Serial number just arrived. Merci, mon amis.
[Version 3.0]

Upgraded from v.2 yesterday and received an email receipt stating "your serial will be sent within 48 hours"! So much for instant gratification. Still haven't received the serial number.
[Version 3.0]

Downloads incorrect (version v6.0.7, not 7.0.0) which is incompatible with Snow Leopard.
[Version 7.0.0 SLE]

Two requests for the developers:
1. There doesn't seem to be a way to "reactivate" applications you select to stop watching (Apple-S).
2. Automate the program so it can be user configured to check for updates daily and, if selected by the user, automatically install those updates.
The program will be worth the cost once automation is implemented. Until then, I'm on the fence.
[Version 5.0.3]

Too early to tell whether this program is more beneficial than simply checking MUMenu each day and manually upgrading. The automatic feature would justify the upgrade, but it's not clear how it works. I have my preferences set to automatically download and install new versions, and archive the old version. When does MUD automatically scan for new versions? Only on launch, or periodically while the program is open?

I now get a spinning beachball every time I try to sync with my iPhone.
