Buggy and poor development communication

Functionality
Lacks a lot of features you commonly find in other forums, very bare bones. What it does have, if its not bugged, works well.

Ease of use
Relatively easy setup, though settings are not very intuitive.

Support
Sometimes you get answers in their forum regarding issues and bugs, but usually not. Software is not very well maintained, bugs never fixed.

Forget about it lol.

Good enough for now

Functionality
Map seems bugged (Chrome Win8.1) and it could really use a better way to lookup proper city names.

Ease of use
Easy enough once you figure out your API key

I used this to: Unable to change temperature to read F instead of C and cannot set windspeed to use mph instead of Kph
Owner's reply: Dear Josh,

Kweather supports metric as well as imperial units. Please note, that kweather is caching always the data it receives from Wunderground, independent from your websites cache configuration. Thus, after changing the units you have to flush the cache (or wait 15 minutes) before the changes take into effect.

Very buggy

There are many backend and front end bugs, most of the modules don't even show up.

Nice idea, but not very practical...

First off let me say that I would absolutely love to give this ext 5 stars because if you can get it to work as nice is it does on their demo page then it really is quite amazing, but the reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that not many people CAN get it working as nice as their demo page.

The code is clunky and looks like pieced together parts of several other projects held together with spit and glue (This is coming from a PHP developer).



Sadly as mentioned in another review, these developers push the envelope so fast and continue to add new features that they don't take the time to polish what features are already there and fix the mass incompatibilities and errors therein.



All I can say is this product is FANTASTIC on paper but when applied to a website a large majority of is users will find broken features due to poorly planned code and incompatibilities.
