I'm using the donate version of Weather Widgets. Personally, I do feel it to be the best weather app on Android Market, but it is a matter of preference.

Try weather widget donate. The weather widget tiny is a nice looking 1x1 tile with your location, prediction (changing graphic), and temp. Looks quite nice.

Thanks!
Weather forecast has a 1X1 size.

WeatherBug Elite for me. I like the notification bar temperature is always your current location, not just your "home" like in The Weather Channel.

Bonus is the reporting station at home is the local school only 1 1/2 miles away so I have almost the actual temp and conditions right at my house!

I use TWC it alerts me as I drive along to the weather conditions of where I am at, really helps when it's raining and below 32 as to if they roads my be icy. I also have my daughter's town and my parents' town so I can check weather where they are.

i'm currently using the weather/news widget from 2.1...it's a 1x4 widget if you show both weather and news, 1x1 if you show either/or by themselves...can't remember where i saw it but it was pulled from the latest Android 2.1 build....if I find it i'll post the link...

i like that it has news stories too...entertainment, sports, tech, etc

Traveled with droid out of state. have wbug free. updates, but then noticed no way to have multiple places? What I wanted was to see what the weather was at home. Actually, would be interested in having an app where I can see the weather where I am, at home, where my kids are at college. So something where I can put in a bunch of locations and it will tell me them all in a listing. Is there something that does this, or do I just not know how to use wbug free?

Try the Weather Channel app. I know for a fact you can add multiple locations because I have done it. It also puts the current temperature in the notification bar so in the morning instead of unlocking my phone, I just turn the screen on and look in the notification bar. The temp in your notification bar is whatever location you set as your home location.

EDIT. Also, you can set it to follow your location, so when you travel, it give the temperature for your current location.

I have WB Elite... but had the free version previously. You can add multiple cities to it. Open the app and click on menu Locations. Then you can add what you would like to have. WeatherBug will follow you as well like the Weather Channel one. I just like WB better because the local reporting station at my house is only 2 miles away... pretty accurate.

Nice. 1 euro gone from my pocket. love the weather forecast widget. I already use the pure calendar widget by the same dev, so I should have known I would like his weather widget. His widgets allow you to make them transparent. very sweet.

I tried many widgets before including the weather channel, beatiful home (beautiful widgets), weatherbug, and weather widget donate. I absolutely hated the weather channel widget. It was fuzzy on the Droid, and ugly in general, and for some reason even though I told it not to make audible notifications, the app kept making noises every time there was an advisory. I didn't like weather widget donate just because the widget is so large. I liked the widget, and really liked being able to launch whatever weather app I wanted when clicked, but the widget is just too big. I like the flip clock, but i don't need a clock, there's already one in the notification bar and i don't like hiding the notification bar.

beautiful home is nice but the animations annoyed me (took too long) and I want to be able to launch the weather app of my choice for more detailed forecast.

i settled on weatherbug because its widget looked the best for my tastes, but still not completely satisfying, just the best to my tastes--until now. I will keep weather bug for the detail, but will use the pure weather widget for my home screen.

Going to email the dev to see about making any app launchable when clicking. can't hurt.

I've got the Accuweather widget on my homescreen, set to my home address. I never click it, though, because the web interface sucks. I have The Weather Channel loaded to show weather wherever I am in the notification bar, and I've got multiple locations loaded in its app (but its widget is ugly). Kind of a cob job, but nothing else covers the way I want exactly.

I use ForeFlight Weather - Android app on AppBrain

But I'm a pilot, and we need much more accurate and detailed weather information

FWIW I also have the Weather & Toggle widgets (Weather Widget Donate) on my home screen.

Do any of the weather apps allow you to be alerted to severe weather, sort of like a NOAA weather radio?

TIA-Mike

The reviews on the market say that Weatherbug has been a little buggy since the last update. Has this been your experience as well?

I am using Weather Forecast Widget (donate), it gives a nice 4 day forecast and pulls my calendar info in. I use the transparent skin so it looks nice too.
If I want more/better weather info I go to wunderground and/or Radar Now!
I don't travel a lot so sticking with the local info is fine.

The weather channel app will do this to. Whats cool is that as you move place to place it will alert you of any severe weather wherever you are. Also with the recent update the weather channel app is much more refined.

Recently switched from WeatherBug to The Weather Channel. Love the forecast tabs for Hourly, 36 Hour and 10-day. The wide widget may not be beautiful but its three-day graphic forecast is excellent. It's free so why not give it a try?

My problem with beautiful widget, and perhaps you haven't noticed this yet, is the inaccuracy. It will say hi-71, lo-55 and current 76. How? How can the current be above the forecast high? On weatherbug the current will not exceed the high. Minor perhaps but annoying nonetheless.

I use the stock widget, I like the way it looks and gives quick access to the outlook and news articles..which is awesome!!

I have TWC app though too if I want to look at radar or something. I used to have the weatherbug, but it's insanely inaccurate!

My Favorite!
Animated Weather for Android - Weather forecast application. The exquisitely realistic video effects of cloudiness, rain and snow provide the vivid sensation of current or future weather conditions for more than 50000 locations over the world.

This seems like a nice app, I have started to use it today. My wife has a animated one for her htc but I couldn't find one for my galaxy s2 so I am trying this one.
