Editors' Review

+
It's hard to find fault with this handy freeware program that brings current weather conditions to your desktop. WeatherMate's straightforward design makes it easy to choose cities from more than 50,000 worldwide locations, and you can add multiple locations to monitor. A system tray icon displays the temperature for your primary city, and you can opt to show a small interface with additional weather information for each of your locations. WeatherMate offer a nice array of choices for details, including current conditions, a seven-day forecast, and even a radar image. You can specify how often WeatherMate updates its information, which comes from the Weather Channel, or use the Update link to immediately refresh the data. Easy to use and chock-full of useful weather information, WeatherMate is a nice option for any user, especially those who wish to track weather conditions in multiple locations.

"Will not remember to load when Windows starts"

January 13, 2014  |  By kramyugtaht

2014-01-13 20:00:25  |  By kramyugtaht

 |  Version: WeatherMate 3.4.6

Pros

It works otherwise

Cons

The whole reason I got it is so it loads automatically and displays the temp in the tray without me having to open it each time, the check box won't stay checked. There is not an "apply" button on that page and in spite of it staying checked when I close the interface next time I boot up it won't be there or load with Windows.

Summary

Too bad it's small enough to not take much system resources, except it just doesn't do this basic thing correctly.

Updated on Jan 13, 2014

I posted with 2.5 stars not 3, for the record that doesn't work right on Cnet either. Why do you show it with 2.5 stars when you're going to round it up? How difficult is it to make that consistent?

"Does what it says"

December 06, 2011  |  By SlayerIce

 |  Version: WeatherMate 3.4.4

Pros

Lightweight, small footprint. Gives you the option of running on Windows startup or no. Quick to get weather conditions

Cons

The only thing I find I dislike is you have to send it to the system tray to exit, there isn't an option for that on the interface.
