The Accuweather app is pretty nice to have. I like using it just for the use of it, but there are MUCH better looking ones out there. As far as operation, Accuweather and Weatherbug are pretty good, in my opinion.

You could always browse the market and find something you like.

I'm a big fan of weatherbug for the forecast info and the live radar mapping.

For my widget, I have been using Beautiful Widgets pretty much since day 1. Really nice selection of skins for clock and weather.

No, but its pretty cheap. Well worth the $3 imo.

There are free ones out there, but they aren't as nice with the graphics, and usually free apps make their money by pushing Ads to you through their app. This one doesn't.

I agree with LaTuFu. He's absolutely right. I just purchased BeautifulWidgets today after he mentioned it on a different topic. They are stunning and there is definitely a variety that is well worth the 3$. You can change the skin of your weather, clock, battery, and toggle widgets.

Here is what I did with mine:

Odd. This worked before. I viewed an imaged from my email, copied the destination from properties and pasted it here. It showed up for me at first, now its gone.

I really enjoy the weatherbug app. I have been happy with the free version.I also use Accuweather,as long as you don't mind ads, the free versions are fine with me.

I use WeatherBug Elite. It has been a fine app. I use it for the local forecast and weather info, as we do not have any other local reporting station. The next closest weather station is 20 miles away. WeatherBug is invaluable to me.

Okay, here is a collage of my screens.

Going from left to right you have my Audio player, Lock screen, Phandroid app (had to), and then my 3 home pages below.

If you cant see this image, let me know and I'll try to fix it.

Here is mine:
I keep it basic. One other homescreen with Google search on it. The rest is in the scrolling dock or it doesn't matter enough.

Default Galaxy Vortex

I like La Tu Fu's live galaxy Vortex screen. I have it also. Weather Bug Elite all the way. Beautiful widgets are nice, but the weather source for me is 20 miles away.

I like the ability to update from the home screen. especially when you have multiple locations

the weather compared other apps (weather ch, weatherbug, beweather) are sometimes around 4-5 degree difference tho.

The stock AccuWeather Clock widget is very unreliable. Beautiful and Fancy widgets are great, but you need to live near a reporting station for accurate temps. WB Elite is tops.

I do like the Vortex Galaxy live wallpaper.
