Ratings and Reviews
Nice interface for my station
I switched my station over to 2.0 as soon as I found out about it. I like this app better than the web access to the station as it is more organized and easier to read. I wish it would rotate on the iPad, but that’s not really a deal killer for me. The one disappointment is that my weather history only goes back to my migration date. It didn’t actually migrate my previous history going back a couple of years.
I really like that it HS the inside temperature and humidity reported. My terminal is back in a work room near my network gear so not that convenient to check physically.
Weatherlink 2 Not Data-centric/Scientific
Version 2.0 is a big let down for me as a backyard Vantage Pro2 owner from a weather geek perspective. It lacks the chemistry of tying all of the current, daily, monthly, and annual stats together. I liked the WL 1 views of data because I could easily compare my weather station to other regional stations w/o jumping around a bunch of different screens. I doubt “regular” consumers normally buy the excellent Vantage Pro2 or some of the other nice Davis weather instruments, so why did we have to lose the ease of the prior data-centric/scientific views of our weather stations? I know Davis can do better than the consumer eye candy they offer in WL2. Sad, I hope the Davis marketing and Web/IOS teams are given new directions to better support the weather geeks who really get into backyard forecasting and data analysis of their Davis stations and others listed in the Davis network/cloud. I am hopeful we will see a course correction from Davis in the future.
A long way to go
Well. Sorry to say I’m not impressed. Compared to the earlier version “2.0”has a modern look and feel. However on the early version all the data fitted on one page and it was an easy swipe to see month and year. On this new app it’s all over the place and the colors make it hard for me to read. Far far too much scrolling. Compared to other modern weather apps like Weather Underground it’s just not as useful. My advice to the Davis developers is to make it more data and data access centric and less “pretty”. Everything the station reports should be clear on the opening screen. Temperature yes, but other stuff is tiny and poorly distinguished. And please don’t make me scroll seemingly endlessly and still not find what I want. Most Davis users are likely data hacks anyway...
