Forecast Bar provides you with a complete, fully featured weather app that updates every hour. Since we use Forecast.io, a premium weather provider, we have to pay for each request. If you would prefer more frequent updates (10, 15 or 30 minutes), we have added the ability to upgrade within the app to these frequencies.
This is entirely optional; Forecast Bar will remain functional without any additional purchases or subscriptions of any kind.
