    I think they did a good job because they made it compatible with Leopard also, and it now finally updates the temperature, because before I had to quit the app, and then relaunch it.

    "Nice, but issues"

    February 12, 2006   |   By miketall

    Version: WeatherBug Lite 1.0b1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    It's a great looking widget and has some really nice functionality built in to it. However, I cannot recommend this widget. My first problem is that it cranks my processor up to 100% usage for hours. I don't know what it is doing, and from my past history with this on the PC, I don't trust that it is keeping me and my computer private.

    The free version on the PC had pop-up ads and communicated back to "somebody". Eventually, I always got rid of it. Any decent anti-spyware software for the PC will recommend deleting it. Of course, it was and is free. So, you can't get a little without giving a little. I don't know if the processor issue has to do with a poorly written program or... the alternative scares me.

    "Works Swell & no Adware in Mac"

    November 24, 2005   |   By johnsonenm

    Version: WeatherBug Lite 1.0b1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Unobstrusive temp readout in the menu; weather alerts performed excellently. Reads the data in a weather station a mile away at the local Middle School in Anacortes, a nice feature for those of us living on the NW edge of the continental US.

    Contrasted to the rumored spyware/adware allegations made against the PC version of Weatherbug, the Mac version places no ads on my desktop. (Of course, as noted by the 11/2/05 version of the IT Central Services at the Univ of Mich, "there are no known adware or spyware programs that affect Macintosh computers.")

    There has been some concern noted on the Apple Discussion Board about a conflict betwen Weatherbug and iTunes, but I've seen no problem with my G4 Powerbook, System 10.4.3 and iTunes 6.0.
