    I want a weather app that has good graphics and shows the location as accurately as possible. Geolocation wise, the stock HTC app, Beautiful Widgets and Weather Bug all disappoint. They all sometimes show screwy locations. Like today when I was in Orpington and Beautiful Widgets insisted I was in Camberwell, which is miles away. The Weather Channel seems to do locations fairly well but the interface is not too pretty. I like silly graphics like the windscreen wiper and raindrops on the HTC stock clock/weather app. Is there any app that works properly and fits the bill without GPS or Wifi turned on?

    Well, I am sat here in Beckenham with wifi switched on. The following are showing as locations:

    Stock HTC - Bromley
    Beautiful Widgets - Camberwell
    Snowstorm - Beckenham
    Weatherbug - Bromley
    Weather Channel - Beckenham

    Not all weather apps are the same location wise quite apparently :confused:
