You’ve probably heard these simple sayings on many occasions. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” And, one of my favorites, “Everybody complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it.”
Put those two sayings together and you come up with a Mac Widget that is both attractive and useful. It’s a weather Widget which displays weather data and predictions from The Weather Channel, but also in an attractive, easy on the eyes package. You know, like Gabrielle Union.
Fix The Weather, Please
Unfortunately, what Widget for The Weather Channel does not do is fix the weather. For that you’ll need some prayer, a little divine intervention, or a trip out of the Midwest.
This useful Widget bills itself as “the most beautiful weather app for Mac ever” and while there’s little likelihood of seeing the survey results, the Widget is attractive.
Not Jennifer Lopez attractive. More like Debra Messing attractive, but with curves top and bottom.
What you get for your 99-cent investment (hey, beauty comes with a price tag; just ask Marc Anthony) is standard weather app fare, but with a few pluses to make it worth the coin.
For example, forecasts go up to 10 days. Weather is updated hours. Setup multiple locations to display, each in its own Widget.
And, get notifications from OS X’s Notification Center.
God gave us the weather. It’s up to us to figure out what to do with it.
Widget for The Weather Channel gives you options to open multiple location Widgets, view the whole shebang from a click to the Menubar, and change backgrounds for each depending upon the weather conditions.
It’s an attractive, playful and yet pragmatic app with more potential than meets the eye. Just like Debra Messing.
