  • Weatherbug has no concern for Mac!

    By Kardleo
    My wife and I are full time "team" truck drivers. All of our route is in the NW (UT, ID, MT, WA). Winters are horrendous for driving. I rely on 9 different weather apps throughout the winter and throughout all the route that we drive. Also every week in preperation for the weeks run. Weatherbug on my iPhone is my "go to" app. I recently bought a new desktop computer switching from Windows to Apple iMac. Was happy to see that Weatherbug was an available app for the Mac. WHAT A JOKE! It does not work on the Mac! All the problems noted in other reviews are true and accurate AND Weatherbug has no concern to fix these problems for the Mac. LOOK AT THE VERSION HISTORY! WITH HUNDREDS OF REVIEWS REVEALING THE PROBLEM(S) THEY HAVE NOT RELEASED AN UPDATE IN OVER A YEAR! DO NOT PUT THIS APP ON YOUR MAC!
  • Probably the best app.

    By khashabri
    this app has the potential to be the best weather app for mac.
  • Make it more Mojave-compliant

    Ban’t sign in after signing in friom the internet. Tried downloading the app on my PC. It shows up on launchpad, but won’t open.
  • App contains ads and doesn’t mention it.

    By drcharris
    The app contains ads but does not mention the fact on the App Store page. This is deceptive.
  • Good

    Like so many on here, Weatherbug worked great for years and recently started messing up with High Sierra. After fooling around with it for entirely too long, I finally figured out that I had to reenter my location for the temperature and cloud/sun icon to show up in the menu bar. High Sierra must have removed my location from it somehow. The app does work properly, but you have to manually put your location in after updating to High Sierra. Follow these instructions: To get rid of the weatherbug icon in the menu bar, click the weatherbug icon. If everything is blank, you need to add the location. Click the little arrow pointing downward at the top left, and this will let you add your location. Type in your zip code for the more accurate location and “done.” Then click the settings wheel in the top right and make sure "follow me” and “Launch on Startup” are checked. I went ahead and logged in too, but I don’t think that part matters. If using a destktop at home, I guess the follow me isn’t necessary either. I had to enter my zip code, because I use an ethernet and it couldn’t determine my location via wifi. I spent many hours troubleshooting this. Do this and you should be fine. I’ve also tested about 10 other weather apps today, including all the most popular ones and none of them compared to Weatherbug. For me, its best features are it shows the temperature and cloud/sun, etc icon IN THE MENU BAR and NOT IN THE DOCK. I look up at the corner of the screen to check the time a lot and prefer to do all my glancing in one location on the monitor, not the dock. Further, this doesn’t even show up as an open app, so it’s not in the dock. I try not to keep a lot of apps open, so this is perfect. It’s accurate and updates regularly and a single click shows the temperature over the next 12 hours. The radar is handy also, but as others have said, it opens a browser window when clicked that says “page not working” in Chrome, but works if I copy and paste it in Safari. IDK, Mac thing, I guess. The radar from the menu bar gives enough detail that I don’t need to click it to see more tho. I wish it gave a minutecast and an hourly weather prediction instead of every 3 hour increments, but by far, this app has more appeal than any others.
  • No longer use

    By Traditional Texas Catholic
    I stopped using this app because it became non-functional. It stopped showing up i the bar at the top of the screen. Clicking on it results in nothing. It needs a lot of work before I’ll re-install it.
  • Consistently incorrect…if that can be spun as reliable

    By geoffreyalanholliday
    It’s 80-degrees in Simi Valley, California. Weatherbug reads 70-degrees. It is consistently wrong.
  • iPhone/iPad Version Is Great…What Happened to Mac OS Version???

    By TM-650-TM
    It pains me to write a negative review for Weatherbug as I love the iPhone/iPad versions. Use them all the time. The version for Mac OS (Sierra v10.13.4) is just not what I expected. It installed with no problem. When open, it places an icon in the status line that shows current temp and a symbol for the current weather condition. OK. So, click on it and you get Location, Current Condition, Todays Temperature (a graphic show temps for the day) and Live Radar in a pop-up. Looks good so far. Click on anything other than Location and the app launches your default browser to show you the detailed information from Weatherbug.Com. Why? What is the point when I could have just gone to Weatherbug.Com on my own? I’m removing the app from my Mac. If the mobile versions start behaving in this manner, I will remove them, too. I can launch a website on my own. I hope Weatherbug for Mac improves to a version that does not require a web browser to show information. When it does, I will be back. For now, it’s a no go. :^(
