Review: Meteo lets you quickly view the current weather conditions

Check the weather information for multiple locations easily using Meteo for Mac.

Meteo for Mac distinguishes itself from a number of available weather applications for OS X with great performance and extensive customization options, including display and even fonts, making it highly customizable compared to its competitors. The app allows for quick viewing from any screen.

After downloading, the application starts up with an extensive options window. Several sub-menus allow changes to almost every aspect of the program, including the cities to add for weather information, which can include multiple locations. Users can also change the temperature format, and display additional weather information, such as humidity. The ability to change font and other display options is also a welcome feature. The number of forecast days can also be modified, and alerts can be set up to play songs or work through a number of channels, including e-mail. Once activated, Meteo for Mac places a small icon in the top menu bar or in the dock, depending on the option selected. This displays the location, temperature, and a symbol with the current conditions. All are easy to see and read quickly. The only downside noted during testing was that the icon's width made it disappear when using applications, such as Microsoft Office, which have many drop-down tabs.

Meteo for Mac would be a useful selection for any Mac user looking for an easy-to-use weather app with a number of options.
