Meteo for Mac

CNET Editors' review

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.

    "FINALLY - BACK TO "OLD SELF"!!"

    June 6, 2011  |   By supayne

    Version: Meteo 1.5.5

    Pros

    I have been a loyal user for years - it is a nicely featured, simple to use & handy app! But starting with 1.53 & continuing with 1.54, the app crashed (I have updated iMac with MacOS 10.6.7). Luckily, I kept version 1.52 & used it until this update.

    Cons

    No excuse for taking so long to correct bug!! I would have been pissed if I had not saved version #1.52!! Hope they did not lose many customers!!

    Summary

    LESSON LEARNED: Do not automatically "replace" an old version of beloved app with new one, unless you are SURE the new version is working properly!! And you are SURE you do not have to pay again for that new version!!

    Version: Meteo 1.5.4

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about 1.5.4

    Cons

    Unuseable version

    Summary

    Do not upgrade to 1.5.4 - wait till they fix the bug.

    "So far no problems, I like it."

    October 12, 2010  |   By fabianow106--2008

    Version: Meteo 1.5.2

    Pros

    Works as advertised, no issues. It is very customizable.

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    I like this program, it is very similar to a program I used to use but lost when I had a crash. I like this one a bit better, so far it is working well. You can tweak it to your specs. The best part is it's FREE!!!

    "Update loop fixed? Nope."

    September 2, 2010  |   By VersionTrackerUserOpinion

    Version: Meteo 1.5.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Well, I thought perhaps I should have knocked on wood because after about two weeks of a pleasant surprise--where the thing didn't get caught up in the infamous update loop...

    It's back.

    I guess I'm frankly baffled and surprised that such a great utility otherwise is so vexed with this seemingly unique problem. WeatherBug and WeatherDock don't have this problem. Never have. What is wrong with the coding here? Surely the same inspired ingenuity that gave us such a wonderful little utility can figure this out?

    Unfortunately once again, in what has become a now five-year disappointment with Meteo, I am back to WeatherBug.

    While it's great to have something "pretty", what we really need is something that works reliably--especially now that it's hurricane season.

    I'm just afraid that I can no longer recommend Meteo, much less use it.

    I just have no confidence anymore that the problem will ever be fixed.

    "Useful menu bar add-on to know your local weather"

    August 29, 2010  |   By paulomal--2008

    Version: Meteo 1.5.2

    Pros

    It is nice to be able to know at a glance the temperature and to get, by just clicking, extended reports with all sorts of interesting data. It is able to get the weather for more than one city, which is very handy when you have to travel.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is not able to connect to the weather service from which it gets its data. That's due to changes in the programming of the site of that service, so the only fix possible is waiting for an update of this add-on.

    Summary

    A must have (not only for weather junkies)
