    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 :mad:

    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.)

    yeah I use TWC also and not a fan of how the widget looks.

    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.

    Er, pardon me. Noob here. :)
    What must I do to get the temp to show in the notification bar?

    Nevermind. I missed your inference about Weatherbug. Thanks!

    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.

    How did you get The Weather Channel app to put a temp in you 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 started to use Beautiful Widgets with the weather icon there.

    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$$.

    Call me crazy, but I just bookmarked my zip code at weather.gov in the browser.

    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).
