@This is me
It would be perfect if it supported EXIF.

Specular on 2015-05-03 13:47

@smaragdus, EXIF metadata (rotation at least) is a planned feature, judging by the Github issues page.

If any devs out are there feel like adding support for it I'm also sure the author would welcome it :)

@Specular
Since version 1.5.0 Pictus offers EXIF orientation support! ;)
By the way the latest version is 1.5.1.

Doesn`t work for me in Windows 8.1. Appears for a second then disappears off screen.

__philippe on 2015-04-19 16:16

WeatherMate 4.3 finally working under XP.
(just ignore the "Cannot create application shortcuts" warning)

During initial run, a tiny temperature icon is created in the system tray.
Thereafter, right click the icon to set personal options, such as position of main WM43 window, local preferences, forecasts display periods and so on.

Nifty app.

job_toss, thank you! That worked perfectly.

The author was pretty non-responsive. He emailed me like 1-2 months after my initial wishlist/suggestions and shot down every one. -__- I wish he had just told me that when I asked about this problem.

AndTheWolf on 2015-09-21 17:54

Version 1.23 has been available for about a month.

I don't like this one at all, but it is portable.

Pax on 2010-12-21 00:33

Just downloaded the app and played around with it for a bit. Love it! Extremely functional and gives me a quick summary for a number of selected cities around the world.

You can choose what columns to display, metric or not, sorting, reports... lightweight - runs like the wind... nice!

Extremely fast and lightweight. Use this more than any other weather app. Makes it easy to compare weather reports from multiple areas.
