National Real Time Weather Screen Saver

CNET Editors' review

This basic program flips among three weather maps of the United States that show an infrared view, current percipitation, and a 12-hour forecast. None of the maps are graphically impressive, and several of them only take up part of the screen, leaving a lot of real estate either blank or full of links to other weather-related sites. The screensaver has no settings, and you have to stay connected to the Internet or the program will display the same image all the time. You can click on various parts of the maps to zoom in or to launch a Web page displaying more detailed weather data, but once you've done so, you won't be able to navigate back to the original three maps. Despite its lack of features and rather rudimentary design, weather buffs may enjoy Real Time Weather Screen Saver.

    "Absolutely AWFUL! Waste of Time"

    February 24, 2012  |   By moranautomotive

    Version: National Real Time Weather Screen Saver 7.0.7

    Pros

    It uninstalls quick

    Cons

    It's basically a web page with a bunch of links. What a total bunch of garbage. Sure the links are to places like NOAA, but the way it's laid out and the fact tht you have to interact with it, it just rediculous. I WANTED A SCREENSAVER! Not a webpage that I have to click all over. This is a complete wast of your time. I would NOT use this.

    Summary

    Crap, Not a Screensaver, Glad I didn't have to pay for it. UNINSTALLED PERMANENTLY!

    "Great Weather Tool for Professionals"

    November 15, 2010  |   By Boeing767fo

    Version: National Real Time Weather Screen Saver 7.0.7

    Pros

    In one minute get complete weather overview
    Updates quickly with latest images, code must be fixed.
    If one of the images has critical data, click right on image to get details.

    Cons

    Images are small for my screen, but its FREE. Would pay for larger images.
    Did not know it was interactive, need to stress that.

    Summary

    Bottom line, use it all the time for fast weather briefing. My computer now gives me information instead of having to click around the web saving me loads of time.
