    "Great program"

    January 28, 2012  |   By Captleemo

    Version: WeatherBug 6.07

    Pros

    Largest collection of weather stations in the world (8000) and several within my own community to choose from. With the Pro version you can moniter multiple locations eliminate the adds and choose from multiple skins. I have used weather bug for years and never had any problems. I can check the weather 24/7 and not have to wait for the weather forecast on TV or radio.

    Cons

    The free version is not for me because for a weather application I don't want the adds and you don't get all the features available.

    Summary

    For less than $20.00 bucks a year you can have a real good weather program without the hassles of all those adds.

    "You get what you pay for. ad-ware ,malware"

    August 21, 2009  |   By BubbaBlu

    Version: WeatherBug 6.07

    Pros

    free accurate weather close to home, camera links

    Cons

    ad-ware, malware,banner adds and having to pick a sponsor

    Summary

    It is what it is, simple and free. If it kills your resources, don't run at start-up. Re-trive temp or conditions then turn off and reboot.

    "The best weather out there !!!!"

    April 13, 2009  |   By hobbies2

    Version: WeatherBug 6.07

    Pros

    It has the best weather features and accuracy of current weather conditions. The warnings are timely enough to allow you to prepare. It's a fun and informative site with other features than just weather if you want to explore.

    Cons

    I just wish they updated the site with more skins.

    Summary

    After reading some of the negative comments, I can only assume that the complainers are using the "free" version. Of course there are ads and the special features can't be accessed!!!!!! The service that you pay for is without all of the negativity, does NOT slow the computer, has no ads and no adware!!! You get what you pay for....

    "Unscrupulous program"

    April 3, 2009  |   By Toribor

    Version: WeatherBug 6.07

    Pros

    It tells you the temperature... I guess...

    Cons

    Spyware
    Adware
    Malware

    Summary

    I am ashamed that this is on download.com... I always see this program getting flagged for malware and it always seems to be accompanying problems. Maybe the program has cleaned up since I last ran into it, but this is definitely not a software company to trust.

    "Thinking an add supported app is infected is foolish!"

    November 18, 2008  |   By Charles K

    Version: WeatherBug 6.07

    Pros

    I used it for two years, back when AS apps all detected an add supported app as adware or an infection. truth is, it's not! I use what I consider the best security & even though my As app screamed at it's install, adding it to the keep list ended it!

    Cons

    After 2 years using nothing but Weather Pulse, I switched to weather Bug today on my XP Pro system. That leaves me with one con! It hasn't been updated for so long, I think they've forgotten about Vista.

    Summary

    I use Online Armor as my firewall, NOD32 as an AV, Spy Emergency 2008 (which has 1,333,956 signatures as of today's updates) & Malware Bites, paid version. After I installed Weather Bug, I ran full scans with all 3 & nothing at all was detected. I even target scanned it's program file, and all "CLEAN"!!! Imagine that.
