is anybody else using this app "weather live"
my mac is running 24/7 and this apps starts at 60mb+ when you open the app, if you leave the app running in the background after a while it goes up to 900mb of memory usage

not even firefox or itunes uses that much

Yep I used it and had the same problem, deleted it promptly. I will suggest ClearDay, works flawlessly, takes up a paltry 20mb and is 1.99$.

ok there was an update yesterday to weather live

i updated around 3pm, memory was around 72mb
with the mac on 24/7 i checked again right now 12am and is now the same 72mb

so they fixed the memory leak or whatever the problem was

i did buy clearday but i did not like it for some reason, weather live just looks better to me
