    "Wrong temperatures. Showed full sun on fully rainy day"

    June 9, 2014  |   By cassimg

    Version: YoWindow 3S build 166

    Pros

    Nice graphical presentation of weather when it does work properly even if the temperatures are wrong.

    Cons

    Temperatures for Sydney are always wrong. All over the place for LIVE weather and incorrectly stated on forecasts. LIVE weather showed full sunshine one day when it was fully overcast and raining! They cant even get the current weather right@#$%! Cant read "local" weather web site or RSS feed. Using full unlimited version 4. Uninstalled it promptly.

    Summary

    Since the weather is sourced from either a Norwegian weather site or open weather map it is chronically inaccurate. Probably OK for Europe but useless for Australia.

    Updated on Jun 9, 2014

    Version 3 gives reasonably accurate weather even if the temperatures aren't quite right. Version 4 is one that showed LIVE sunny weather when in fact is was raining all morning. Hence stay away from version 4.

    "Once good now Horrible! ZERO SUPPORT!"

    September 11, 2013  |   By SnakeMan999

    Version: YoWindow 3S build 149

    Pros

    A very slick program that perhaps is trying to do too much. It used to work much better but in recent times the servers no longer accurately render the correct information at all.

    Cons

    The information is chronically inaccurate and rarely updates unless you constantly go into the program and manually update it yourself every few minutes. This makes it worthless. I have written several times to the "so-called" support developers and they no longer even bother to respond as they once did. As a growing number of others are reporting, this program was once pretty decent but you should now avoid it completely and save your money. It's aggravating when a developer provides a program and then all but abandons it while still taking people's hard earned money.

    Summary

    The developer should fix this program but if it can't be fixed at least stop taking people's money. CNET should purge this program from its offerings as it very much appears it has been abandoned by the company. No doubt they'll convince CNET they're still actively working with it but they are absolutely not responding to end users with problems. Save your money folks and find another program.

    "Quick and Accurate"

    September 6, 2013  |   By bardaghohio

    Version: YoWindow 3S build 149

    Pros

    Quick, at-a-glance weather information. Can use your own images as the background.

    Cons

    Would like to see it update the weather information more often. Would also like to see a few more "default" background images; a small-town, for example, rather than the farm scene. A link to radar would also be good.

    Summary

    Quickly paid for the full program, as it's utility was obvious. Not as in-depth as other weather software but highly useful and incredibly easy to set up and use.

    "Inaccurate, hangs on update"

    July 2, 2013  |   By eq2addict

    Version: YoWindow 3S build 149

    Pros

    looks pretty

    Cons

    It seemed to work great at first, then the data didn't match any other source, and it just hangs when I try to update it. I just uninstalled it because I've been assuming there's been some sort of server problem on their end that would be fixed, but it's been 3 days.
