    So, I was watching the weather channel last night around 9pm pacific time.
    The 2 weather people were up talking about the weather.

    On the bottom of the screen a message comes up that says:
    "Get Ready To Scan". I'm like wtf does that mean?

    About a minute later, a QR code comes up on the screen , with a message under it that says, "Android users, scan now".

    Presumably that was the code for their android app.

    Very cool stuff. I thought that was awesome.

    It does have maps. When you click into a location, press the menu button , and there's a maps button in there. I use the radar thing all the time. They have all the layers to turn on and off too, along with the time lapsed animation.

    I've been using it for months. Love it, much better than the OE app.

    Their widget is too minimalist for me.

    Exactly why I like it, only takes up one small app location.

    Ah, I never saw that. Oh well, I'm liking Weatherbug Elite right now.
