I like Weather Bug mainly because it included the amount of precipitation when it rains. I haven't found another weather program that does this.

jcs83md: yeah we all forgot that the world's weather changes as FAST as the movie "The Day After Tomorrow" would otherwise suggest.

The weather isn't stock information...its weather. Even if reports in other programs are delayed by anywhere from a few minutes to one hour, you aren't going to be stepping outside completely surprised by what advancements have occured in the weather since. "WTF?!!! THE DEW POINT HAS CHANGED BY 0.1!!! NO! MY WEATHER PROGRAM WAS COMPLETELY WRONG!"... *rolls eyes*

Besides, most people will consult the TV first before consulting a software program.

Yes that may be the old 2003 version, but the 6.06 version (screenshots are available at Softpedia) still contains ads and has a pretty piss-poor interface when compared to Weather1, Weather Pulse or Weather Watcher. Even CRAWLER weather has a better interface.

Softpedia did an in-house review. The few things that stand out are 1) the weatherbug toolbar (which you can choose not to install if you do custom install, however most newbie users stray away from custom install) 2) so many contrastng colors...hard window to keep open, 3) ads, ads, and some more ads. You'd figure that with all the ads in the program that it'd be free, but no, there is a $20 pro version.

Doesn't force you to install adware.. if you're an intelligent computer user.

Busy interface =( Forces you to install adware =(

Weather Watcher is my choice. Nice interface & low-resource use. I'm lovin' it!

One thing WeatherBug does offer that the others don't, is REALTIME updates rather than delayed ones.

The program itself is a bit busy and its adware but can't blame someone for trying to make a living off of it..

I love this proggy. As for the screenshot goes, it is that of version 5 but the the serials for the plus version will work for the V5's as well.

not sure what version your screen shot is but IT IS NOT the version that's been out for 7 months- 6.0

soooo- not sure how much on here is accurate if you're discussing the "new" version of WeatherBug with a screenshot of the 2003 version.

but, you don't have to install the search bar with WeatherBug- click the CUSTOM install instead of the Standard.

if you have questions, please contact me at [email protected]

Have been a WeatherBug PRO/Plus user for 3 years, until V6 turned me totally off. The installation placed MySearchBar and MyWay on my system even though I said no during the installation. V6.04 is ugly, way over colorized, too busy, and too CPU/port intrusive. Plus Norton Antivirus deletes the minibug installer as adware. All this for $19.95 per year for Pro/Plus...boooooooooooo.

Weather Pulse V2.03 is now my "weather of choice"...free choice!

Ok.. I LOVE weatherbug BUT...

Version 6.0 SUCKS BIGTIME....

I think the main screen is WAY TOO BUSY. Too
much going on for one screen.

I LOVE version 5. When I wanted to see the radar image I clicked to get it, when I wanted the forcast I clicked to get it etc etc. Now everything is THROWN on to one BUSy page.

Can ANYONE out there help me get version 5 back. Does anyone have the install file for that.. Please....................

thanks

This program has got to be the biggest resource hog. We have many complaints about slow PC's at work and after removing this software, we don't seem to have any more trouble. If you value your clock cycles don't download this
