Crashing issue has been addressed.

UPDATE: Developer immediately responded to this issue and it appears to be fixed with version 3.1.2. I am changing my rating from 1 to 4 stars.

Constantly crashing after today's update. Useless to me at the moment.

Developer Response ,

I'm so sorry about this –– I just pushed out an update (3.1.2) that fixes this issue. Please give it a try and let me know if you have any other issues at Thank you!

Tells the weather, not what I hoped

Edit: The developer was very quick to respond and added the automatic refresh in the new update. Checks all the boxes I was looking for in a simple weather app!

This app seems to have accurate weather, however, you have to refresh to see updated temperatures in the dock. I was looking for something I didnt need to open and refresh, which is why I paid. But, if that doesn't bother you, this app is very well designed and has basic weather info!

Hey –– thanks for leaving a review! I just pushed out an update (3.1.1) that adds an auto-refresh feature (weather data is automatically fetched every 15 minutes in the background). I hope you'll give the app a try again with this new update, let me know if you have any other feedback :)

It works on Sierra on my MacBook Pro with touch bar, but I would really like an option to have the app show in the notifications area so I can swipe left to view it and swipe right to dismiss it.

An hourly forecast is **essential** for me in a weather app, so I would love to see it here.

I live in a very hot climate and planning outdoor activities involves planning around the heat. I want hourly updates or even 15-minute updates on heat index, temp, etc. Very important to me.

Please add notifications — if there is an extreme weather event in my area, such as a tropical storm or tornado — or if I want to be notified if it is going to start raining, even -- that would be great.


Developer Response ,

Thank you for leaving a review! I'll consider adding severe weather notifications in the near future. :)
