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

June 06, 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!!

"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 02, 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)
