    WeatherSnoop Lite or Pro?
    Everyone's needs and budget are different. That's why we offer two flavors of WeatherSnoop: Lite and Pro.

    WeatherSnoop Lite is for users who want to download their data from their favorite station and upload to popular weather services, but don't need the analytical features that allow them to view weather directly on their Macs.

    For the more serious weather enthusiast, WeatherSnoop Pro offers additional tools such as instrument gauges, graphs, the Custodian, and more.

    Either way you go, both applications will give you access to your weather data. And if you purchase WeatherSnoop Lite and decide later to go Pro, you can always purchase the Lite-to-Pro upgrade for just the difference in the price!
