Editors' Review

+
This free application provides a smorgasbord of weather-related information and a healthy set of features. Weather Exchange shows a variety of local, regional, and global maps, some of which can be animated. However, the interface does display some distracting ads and cannot be resized to a full-screen view. Entering your ZIP code or city lets you check out the local radar, and you even can see details such as the temperature, dew point, and wind speed in select neighborhoods. Clicking over to the Maps section reveals that this program hasn't forgotten the big picture. After choosing a continent, you then can view colorful maps that display information such as temperature, wind chill, humidity, UV rating, fronts, and heat index. You'll find a section that details pending natural disasters, and you even can set a number of alarms to alert you when a certain condition changes. We can see how Weather Exchange will be useful to just about any user, but those with an intense interest in meteorology are sure to be especially pleased.

"Easy to use just put in the zip code or city"

December 25, 2010  |  By spider711

 |  Version: Weather Exchange 1.09

Pros

Shows current and past readings for the area with links to weather underground.

Daily highs and lows are not shown for temperature only records. Total rainfall is not shown only rainfall rate.

Summary

Can't get a batter program for the price!

"Good, but v1.30 is available"

June 15, 2010  |  By skrapshak

 |  Version: Weather Exchange 1.09

Pros

Great for local conditions. There is a weather station less than a mile from my house.

Cons

The GUI is a little cluttered, and it is ad supported.

Summary

I think that this is a great desktop weather application. It gives you access to local Personal Weather Stations. You can check the local and national radars. With a click, it will take you to the Weather Underground website for a more detailed forecast for your area.

"Very Handy"

February 23, 2010  |  By hortnut

 |  Version: Weather Exchange 1.09

Pros

Live in area of PNW Metro Area where w/in 20 miles there can be many different conditions going on- due to elevation, wind patterns, water etc. Can set up to monitor these various locations at one time and see realtime what is going on.

Cons

Sometimes it will not refresh properly.

Summary

Worth it and great to play around with. Prefer it over Weather Bug.

"Old version"

September 06, 2009  |  By skydiver51

 |  Version: Weather Exchange 1.09

Pros

Great program, newer version even better.

Cons

MalwareBites keeps giveing an infection detected at 68.180.151.74. I guess it's Weather Exchange's website. I haven't been infected by anything and I use the newest version all the time.

Summary

I don't use anything else !!

"Puts much available information in one place"

September 02, 2009  |  By TheComputerMan

 |  Version: Weather Exchange 1.09

Pros

There is a good selection of information available and it is handy having it updated automatically.

Cons

It really is not aimed at places outside the United Sates. The Irish weather tends to be pitifully out of date by as much as 24 hours. Not the fault of the program. but not helpful.

"Downloaded it and went to install it and it had malware"

May 25, 2009  |  By xleslieanne

 |  Version: Weather Exchange 1.09

Pros

Didn't get to use it, it had malware.

Cons

Downloaded fine and I went to install it and AVG popped up saying it had removed malware and I needed to reboot to completely clear it. I did and when my system was back up AVG popped up "Threat IRSETUP.EXE removed" and it was a SEVERITY LEVEL FOUR!

May 24, 2009  |  By cedbenson

 |  Version: Weather Exchange 1.09

Pros

Being a meteorolgy nut I love this and most all applications dealing with weather information. It will take me a while to determine it's accuracy though.

Cons

Nothing I don't like yet. Unless it messes with my computer.

Summary

None as of yet.
