Things I Love: Degrees for Mac

It’s simple, subtle and super helpful. While I’ve been loving the new Yahoo! Weather app on my iPhone, viewing weather information on a computer has never been perfect. Navigating to a website for weather? Too many clicks. Viewing the weather in a giant widget? Too much screen real estate. Not knowing that the weather is roughly the same outside as it always is because I live in Los Angeles? Really unacceptable.

Solution: Degrees (Free on the Mac App Store)

Degrees places current temperature outside in your Mac menubar. Need a breakdown by hour or day? Need to see what it looks like in another city? Go elsewhere. This is simple and perfect for checking before running out to make sure that you’re wearing the appropriate short sleeved tshirt and flip flops.
