Nice to see that shills are still in abundance. This is such a poorly-designed piece of crap I can't believe it remains even a semi-viable vehicle of income.

For your review you get the dumb POS of the year awared. If you think this is such a poorely designed, etc., you have to be blind. And to really see how well this program is doing take a look at reviews more than what you will find here. They are all very, very favorable. If someone paid you to write your crap review, they lost out rather miserably. I rate Weather Watcher a 5.

I'll provide the same level of review as Haaglander and give it a 5 because the graphic "looks cool".

After looking for a good desktop weather program I chose Weather1. It beats my local TV station offers and doesn’t masquerade as a useful application while secretly functioning as a keystroke logger or unwelcome adware troll like some of the other programs. With Weather1 I can quickly view the weather for several locations. I also like the voice announcements and find the application to be feature packed yet easy to use. Very nice program.

I've been using Weather 1 for about 4 years now and this new BETA by far, is one of the finest built. If you open the program and look at the world wide sites offered for weather, satalite, etc. its mind boggling, that one program can offer so much, under 1 roof!!! Truly a steal at any price.... Tom

Weather1 is one of the better weather monitoring programs out there. There's a wealth of information and statistics that's available all in one place that you just don't get from other programs. I've tried many, many other programs and keep coming back to Weather1 because of it's weather features as well the fun stuff. As noted in other reviews, it has had problems with crashes in earlier versions, but the author has corrected these problems. Recommended.

For those of you unaware of it, for some reason,Kprovance has had a longtime problem with Mike Singer, the developer of Weather Watcher. As a long time user of his program, I have found Mike to be the exact opposite of Kprovance's ridiculous assertions.
There are a multitude of other weather programs that use the exact same content that Mike does. I wonder where weather1 gets it's info from?

I think this application has suffered from the expansion of the Internet. There is nowadays no shortage of sites that will give you a weather forecast for your area free. As has been said, just look out of your window if you want to find out the current weather. It may have more bells and whistles than those sites, but is the extra information really useful? There may be a group of hard-core amateur meteorologists who find this program useful, but not the average computer user. The need for a desktop application - particularly shareware - of this type must be limited.

I bought this program several years ago, then after a year or two I needed to buy an upgrade because my key wouldn't fully unlock newer versions. I believe Kelly Shipp probably still used this "sliding scale". The problem with Weather1, in addition to re-register stuff is, it really never worked well for any version. It always had lock up errors and crash problems from way back to the beginning of it's developement. I have tied using it on various computers over several years and always at some point had the same problems. PASS THIS SOFTWARE BY unless you like junk coded software.

The program works good in the Imperial Syatem, howver it does a poor job in the Metric System. Most countries are using the Metric values and it appears, the conversions are all off. Several other glitches as well. Forecsat, moon phase, program hangs when trying to exit, freezes, etc.

Someone previous said that the wallpaper only rotated images on your pc. That's a load of cRAP! It can rotate any INTERNET image or image from your pc!!!

The interface it not crowded. It's the best you'll find out there and has always been.

This interface is very 'busy'.

As I said over a year ago, the only reason I used this software was for the little feature it had of taking weathercam shots and putting them as your desktop wallpaper. It was kind of neat to have it auto-update a rotating view of Scotland, Big Ben, and a few other favorite places/cams while working at the pc.

Apparently that was too much trouble; the author now has a totally pointless "wallpaper" tab that rotates saved images on your pc. Well, you lost another user.

If anyone knows of a little simple app that does what I described above, please, let me know. I can get weather by glancing out the window ;)
