Cool app but it’s entirely subscription based at 4 a month or 40 a year. Deleted it immediately as I’m in subscription overload. This is a trend that needs to die.

$4/month? Heck no. Downloaded but deleted immediately. I misread that article and thought - $4/year is reasonable.

Weather Up developer here… I totally get your comments on the price, and it is a bit higher than some weather apps (and lower than others). But we're doing quite a few things that use a lot of weather data. And let me tell you, weather data is not cheap. I’ve actually been losing money on the 2.x version of the app for over a year now.

Mapping data is the most expensive thing to provide, which is why a lot of weather apps kind of hide it. Every time you launch the app it opens right to a weather map showing radar (or other mapping layers depending on your settings).

Widgets and complications use a lot of data as well. And with Weather Up you can actually put 3 different forecast sources on the same Home Screen. So every time you swipe over we're paying 3X for that data. Every time you lift your wrist and the complication updates, we're paying for that data. And on and on.

So yeah, not so much a cash grab as trying to build a sustainable business and not lose any more money on data costs. ?

Why would you pay for a weather app when the stock app is free. How much more drilled down data do you need to drive if you are going to wear a jacket or not to work?
