    "The new version is Aweful"

    August 31, 2013   |   By Mikeveax

    Version: WeatherBug 6.8.0.8

    Pros

    I might like the updated interface if this new version worked as well as the old version.

    Cons

    Barely runs on my XP with service pack 3, Crashed constantly, and wouldn't locate my local weatherbug station, that registered fine on
    my old WB version.

    Summary

    If you have xp avoid this upgrade if you can. I am trying to find the old version. Which ran fine two days ago before a major system crash. Weatherbug's website shows a picture of the older version (red and white interface that has current conditions below the round wind indicater.) But downloads the buggy new version. Whats up with that Weatherbug. I have use weatherbug for more that 10 years. Now it seems you don't want me anymore.

    "very good weather tracker"

    January 22, 2013   |   By dawgydaddy69

    Version: WeatherBug 6.8.0.8

    Pros

    weatherbug is able to track weather in my area very reliably which is great and I wasn't sure I could find my town since I live out in the country and not a major city.

    Cons

    The only negative I have about WB is that when I went to uninstall it to install an updated version it was near impossible (I still don't think I got it all). I had to Google the process for that and it was a registry hack. Way to big of a hassle just to install an update.

    Summary

    Very reliable program but so much trouble just to install an update.

    "Good Weather Application, But....."

    January 17, 2013   |   By sldehn

    Version: WeatherBug 6.8.0.8

    Pros

    Great app to diaplay current temps, radar & forcasts. Love the icon in taskbar with current temps.

    Cons

    Do not like the addition of a "toolbar". Refused to upgrade now that there is no option to install without it.

    Summary

    Sorry to see this app go this way. Will look for another app that will give me what I need on the weather without installing additional "trash"

    "VB Scripting Required"

    January 17, 2013   |   By naumatam

    Version: WeatherBug 6.8.0.8

    Pros

    This used to be a great weather app ...

    Cons

    ... despite the ads and ad sponsor resets

    Summary

    Now, VB Scripting is required, and I don't even know what that is or why my computer doesn't have it enabled. I used to have the Weatherbug app on this computer, with no requirement for VB Scripting. I uninstalled Weatherbug because of this "new" requirement. No other weather apps require it; why does Weatherbug? I have the Weather Channel's app and YoWindow's app, and these do not require enabling VB Scripting.
