    Ok so I really like the layout and design of the Beautiul widgets home weather but the weather is off by like 10 degrees now for some unknown reason. When i first was using it it was accurate. So I installed weatherbug elite and i like it in combination with a clock widget buuuuuttttt for some reason no matter what i do in the settings it doesent always update its self ON THE WIDGET unless i click on the widget and open the app. It does sometimes but not always.

    Anyways what is everybodys favorite? Is there anything comparible to Beautiful Widgets weather but with accurate temp and forecast?

    I've stuck with the weather channels widget. I tried weather bug, but it was too buggy--just like their PC version.

    I too have tried a lot of weather apps/widgets and have stayed with the weather channel widget.

    I'm using 'Weather Widgets' from the market. I don't need things like doppler radar or anything, I just want something simple to tell me the weather today and the next few days. this is the best one so far, I love it.

    I'm using the weather channel app with the follow me feature disabled (to save battery) and imo it's kind of hard to beat even if it isn't perfect. My biggest problem with it is the inaccuracy of their forcasts but that isn't the widget's fault.

    What app are you referring to specifically? I tried to look for just plain old weather Widgets and didn't find one that seemed all that great. According to reviews anyway.

    How to tell when a weather person is lying to you? His lips are moving.

    I use the accuweather widget because all I need is a current condition and a 4 day forecast.

    You can also go to your local National Weather Service website, bookmark it, and then create a widget of your own using the bookmark. That's what I have....

    Apparently can't view an animated radar from the NWS on my Captivate, give a red "F" error thing, like it needs flash!? Figures.

    Fancy Widget works for me. Looks nice, too.
