WeatherWatcher

Weather Watcher - your personal weather station

Weather Watcher Website - Freeware (caution: use this link for downloading)

recommended by BrotherS at DonationCoder on 1 Nov 2005

 

Notes from Clif

The Weather Watcher program comes in two versions. One version is freeware. The other version is bundled with some extra features plus two adware programs, WhenU and SaveNow. I advise you to avoid programs with bundled adware. If you decide to try Weather Watcher, make sure to download the freeware version from the FileForum website. The author, Mark Singer at singerscreations.com, isn't trying to hide the adware, but I don't want you to take a chance at getting the wrong version. The author has also made several comments defending the freeware version of his program at FileForum. see comments here

 

Here's my question for you. Should I recommend a good clean freeware program even if the authors also host or create adware infested programs? Yes No Other.

 

When I saw this program and it's recommendation by BrotherS, I asked him if he was aware of any problems with the freeware version. He had only gotten his version from the FileForum website and he wasn't aware that there was another adware infested version of this program. I couldn't resist trying it out myself, and after giving it a run, my opinion is that the freeware version at FileForum is clean and safe to use.

It's non-bloated and just got better with version 5.6. You have lots of options (good!) and could customize it to your needs (temperatures in F or C etc., etc.). read the full forum post
