Editors' Review

+

This updated weather application offers a smorgasbord of weather-related data. Once you've provided a zip code or city, Weather Watcher Live's easy-to-use interface displays detailed weather information, including forecasts, temperature, and expected highs and lows. You can add as many locations as you'd like and switch among them using the system-tray icon.

Automatic updates keep you abreast of the current wind speed, dew point, humidity, barometric pressure, and moon phases. You can display your location's current weather conditions by mousing over the temperature readout in your system tray. Weather Watcher Live provides extensive customizations, measurement conversions, and numerous maps from all over the globe, and a log for quick reference. You can view weather data with hourly and daily forecasts, and create a keyword list to filter severe weather alerts.

The application also features a wallpaper changer for your desktop using several file formats, including JPEG, GIF, BMP, and HTML. Our only serious complaint is its hefty 19MB memory usage. Overall, though, this informative, customizable program can benefit a wide range of users, and it's free to boot. This is a top pick.

"Don't use the modern version"

March 02, 2012  |  By imucarmen

 |  Version: Weather Watcher Live 7.1.06

Pros

I don't know if you can still find it but I would think you can. But use the older v. 5.6.0.53 or before. I have used weather watcher for years and a couple years back maybe even 3 or 4 they changed it completely and I hated it and went back to the older version and have been using it ever since. There are ads, no fees, no trial. It's 100 percent free and works just as good as the new one does. This is not a cracked version or anything, it's just plain old free. This program was free back in the day and I had no idea they charged for it now until today when i came to check out the new version.

Cons

I don't think it really has any

Summary

Like I said do a google search for weather watcher 5.6.0.53 and I think you'll like it much more. Hope I'm not screwing myself by letting out this secret. watch singer find out about this and put a lock on the older versions :p anyway i hope this helps someone.

P.S. If you don't like the look of it there are skins out there that tune up the look and make it more modern, just look around.
