Editors' Review

AlertMe Pro provides much of the same weather-related information as other standard programs, but some things didn't work as promised. You'll have to select a state and city in the U.S., and then AlertMe Pro displays forecasts, current time, temperature, and humidity specific to that location on its commonplace interface. Your specified location's current weather condition is displayed when you move your cursor over the system tray icon as well. Measurement conversions and calculations of temperature, wind, relative humidity, and more are provided, and the program automatically updates information at user-specified intervals. While it claims to cover four locations simultaneously, only the first city has full coverage, and the rest only include alerts. The program also downloads current radar and satellite images. However, download time of these images isn't as speedy as we'd expect, and the radars didn't show up during assessment.

While a 10-day trial is usually short for our tastes, AlertMe Pro doesn't have much to ponder. Overall, this program isn't more readily accessible nor does it offer anything above and beyond the weather information already available on the Internet.

"A few good features but also some disappointments"

June 30, 2008  |  By bobreviewer

 |  Version: AlertMe Pro 6.4

Pros

Good radar image implementation with nice options. Nice alert features.

Cons

Strange location selection behavior - I was unable to select the same location for the alert criteria and for the local condition/forecast. Why not just use zip codes for both location selections?

I was under the impression that the data used is from the National Weather Service. However, the forecast displayed by Alert Me Pro never matched the forecast I would get from the NWS web site. Also, the Alert Me forecast sometimes did not make much sense - for example, I would see forecasts like this: Overnight, Clear with a 14% chance of light thunderstorms. (It seems like the forecast covers all possibilities.) I also did not understand the timing of the forecast - why would I see a current day forecast when the current time is after 6 PM? Shouldn't the first forecast be evening/night?

For software that was advertised to have a graphical interface, there was a lot of information shown in predominantly text format (current conditions, forecast).
