Default Which Weather App Do You Use?

Which weather app seems to be the best for the Droid?

I'm on Weatherbug... it's a HUGE upgrade over the version I had on the Storm, but the widget leaves something to be desired.

Considering trying Weatherbug. I am currently using WeatherChannel and, while it's ok, I really don't like the shape of the widget, neither the large nor the small. It doesn't fit well with my other widgets and messes up the feng shui of my screen

I'm on Weatherbug Paid. I liked it best because you can pick between different local weather stations including time lapse photography of the station. So I have one station that is geo coded that is in the same town but the pics are closer to my house. Then I have one for the local airport and one for my mom's house.

It came in handy and the alerts worked during our Ida rain/wind hear in SE.

I created a folder and named it "shortcuts". I put all the desktop icons in there. I hate to have a cluttered desktop. (Unlike my ridiculously cluttered house.)

I tried the weather channel one but weather bug just seem to have a much better layout. Plus, there is no need for a widget. I like the temperature showing in the notification bar.

I use the Weather Channel app. The widget could be nicer (in terms of looks, if functions fine), but I REALLY like how it puts a little "temperature" icon in the notification bar. Whenever I want to know the temperature, instead of opening the app, i can just wake up my phone, and I don't even have to unlock it to see the temp.

My favorite so far is My Weather Mobile. It shows a brilliant radar overlay of google maps.

MyWeather Mobile (v. 1.0) application in the Android Market - AndroidZoom.com

Weather Forecast Widget is a the best weather widget. It gives you several options of how big you want your widget.

Weather forecast widget v2 (v. 2.4.3) application in the Android Market - AndroidZoom.com

I still have TWC installed for temperature in my info bar.

Go the the 'my places' list (pressing back while at the app's default screen will get you there). Click&hold a location, then select "Set as Home"

I'm now on WeatherBug paid with the Weather Forecast Widget running on the side. They've both turned out nicely--and the latter was updated for Droid this morning.

Beautiful Widgets + paid Weatherbug is sweet. Bootiful Widgets works good too for those of us that can balance the Droid on our a$$.

Switched from Weather Channel to Weather Bug. Much better. On the Weather Channel widget, it would often say "could not get weather" even when all of my other widgets and my connection were fine. I didn't like the way the widget looked or was shaped/sized. I'm much happier with Weather Bug.

Ya'll tried the AcuWeather one?

I have always liked AcuWeather's site on PC's. The app is fast and slick. I like the idea of the Beautiful Widget, but I'm cheap and not willing to cough up the coin to get it.

If you plug the Droid into the docking station it gives the weather, even if you have no weather app installed. So how can we get this internal weather app to run without the dock (if we can, I see no need to get another app from the market).

The PC Weatherbug app was full of spyware so I would never trust it. Weather Channel works great!

I settled on Beautiful Home for the weather widget. I really like the way it looks, and it leaves room for my calendar widgets underneath.

Get the free Dockrunner app from the marketplace to turn the dock mode on/off.

Yeah, I was initially very reluctant to pick up Bug on my BlackBerry (and now on my Droid) because of my experience with the PC program six or seven years ago. But I bit the bullet, and am glad I did--I like Bug much better than TWC.

The name of the App in the market is "Beautiful Widgets". Beautiful home is one of the widgets that comes with it.

Wow. I can't belive I never figured this out. I literally wrote the weather channel devs an e-mail about 5 minutes ago suggesting they allow this before I searched for this thread. They really should have thrown a toggle switch in the settings pane like the weatherbug app. Thanks for the info!!! Now I'll probably stick with the weather channel app. Especially if they can make a 2x1 sized widget icon instead of the 1x1 or 2x2.

I use Weather Widgets + forecast add-on. I use this in conjunction with WeatherBug. I have it set up so if you tap the clock on the home page, the alarm clock app comes up. Additionally, if I tap the forecast, then tap it again once it expands, I have it set up to run the WeatherBug app to give me a better detailed forecast of my location. You can set any app to run if you tap the forecast, i.e. games, calculator, etc., I just choose WeatherBug as I like the layout better than the Weather Channel app.

Is there a free weather app that updates based on GPS location as you travel like the HTC Sense UI does?

WeatherBug updates based on location. Free W/B is ok, but I noticed it is often delayed by the ad banner load. I think that W/B Elite is worth the $2 I paid for it.

Weather Forecast Widget offers the best weather widget hands down. Donate $1.47 to the company and it'll unlock all features, including calendar, auto refresh, and skins. It's the most accurate and looks the nicest imo. And trust me, I've tried em all. Accuweather, weather bug, beautiful widgets, weather channel, blah blah. I'm only interested in the widget, not opening the program and getting a satelite view of the weather and that sort of stuff. I use Forecast Widget just for that, the widget.

Wow. Not a single person mentioned iMap Weather. Follows you around by GPS for local weather alerting, pinpoints you on the map for when you're somewhere you don't really know and have weather bearing down on you.

WeatherBug Elite has started driving me insane... even when I set it for a 6 hour update and disable the location follow feature, it's still going like gangbusters in the background.

Weather Forecast Widget is my homeboy, though. That widg takes a task kill like a champ and shuts the hell up.

Weather by Michael Bachman.

It's a super lightweight app that uses minimal resources can be set to only refresh when you tap the widget, and the dev is a google engineer who promptly returns emails for bug fixes and suggestions.

Were its background gray instead of white, this would be my favorite by far. Completely streamlined. Good rec.

In other news, I just tried the Weather Forecast Widget's 4x2 and 4x3 widgets, which integrate the calendar. I like.

And I finally opened the WeatherBug Elite widgets, which are downright attractive. I'm on weather widget overload. Odd problem to have.

I use USA Today and just hit the weather tab. I would like to have a widget but none of them are pretty enough for me. Glad I'm not the only one who's picky about widget appearance, size, shape, etc.

If you buy the donation add-on to Weather Forecast Widget (by Francois Deslandes), you get all sorts of pretty HTC-style skins. Even without the add-on, it's probably the most aesthetically pleasing widget.

Default My weather app of choice

I use MyWeather. I had it on my BlackBerry and liked it. I'd recommend it...

I've been using beautiful widget, which looks lovely and works very well, but I've decided I'd rather go for a non-'sense' look and changed to a different clock/date widget. If beautiful widget had standalone weather without the flip-clock, I'd be very happy.

Can anyone tell me which weather app has a 1x1 widget that displays the temp/icon widget in a 1x1 size? I've grown tired of the HTC flip-clock/weather and the smaller version is 2x1. Paid or free, doesn't matter.
Thanks!
