    Which Weather Widget is best (speed, efficiency, appearance). Also, which widgets offer clocks, calendars, etc...

    Beautiful Widgets?
    Snow Storm?
    Weather & Toggle?

    Please post your experience with any of these or add which Weather Widgets you use.

    Thanks in advance!

    I like beautiful widgets since it has two different size clock/weather widgets. It has so many skins you can customize both the clock text as well as the weather images.

    For a calender I use Jorte. Many ways to customize the look of it and it has 15+ widgets to use of various sizes and day ranges (daily, weekly, monthly, memo/task list).

    Jorte - Android app on AppBrain

    Pure Grid looks like it might be pretty nice though...

    I don't but here are some examples of what it can look like from the "Let us peak at your screens" thread.
    Monthly view 1283
    Weekly view 1014 953

    Weekly and To Do list 636

    As you can see you can change the colors and the transparency. Horizontal or vertical widgets.

    Mabster, I really do like Jorte for a Calendar. Thanks again!

    Regarding Weather Widgets, though, the race continues!!

    Beautiful Widgets vs Moxier World vs ??????

    I use Beautiful Widgets for my clock/weather (home small, its 4x1). Best weather app? Palmary Weather, but its not in the app story. You have to google it.

    GX, I'll have to check that out.

    As for everyone else, thanks!

    I'm going to give Beautiful Widgets a try. For $1.83 (US) it can't hurt too much ;)

    I'm using this weather app and the tempurature is terribly off. It says it's 93* here in Houston while WeatherBug Elite says it is 79* (which is much more accurate).

    Where does it get its temperature reading?

    I'm using Beautiful Widgets for my clock/weather. It has awesome skins to choose from and great customization, but my weather doesn't seem to update properly. It still said it was sunny and 92 degrees last night at 11pm, even after i did a manual sync. It's not ALWAYS off, but i've noticed when it is off, it's REALLY off.

    Mine too. The Sense UI weather tempurature is pretty accurate as is the WeatherBug. But Beautiful Widgets weather isn't updating. Mine is still stuck on 93*.

    I believe that they get all of the weather from airports around the towns. (almost) every airport has full weather reporting capabilities 24/7, 365. If you can get specific, down to the town you are in inside of Houston (as you can in Palmary-- the best weather app) then it is obviously more accurate. some apps don't utilize all of the smaller airports that would be closer and more accurate to you.
