    that'd be cool if the weather app actually worked on my 2.1 and didn't force close :) lol /bitter.

    It's pretty cool.

    This shows a pretty good demo of all the different weather. It is the HD2, but they are pretty similar on this feature. Look at slide 5.

    If only they made this possible with one of the smaller widget options so as to not have that lame clock taking up so much space.

    YES! finally someone understands what I want. I want a smaller maybe 2X2 weather widget that does the same full screen animation!

    Couldn't agree with you more, the weather animations on the Eris are amazing and the thunderstorm one is definitely entertaining. I recorded a video back in March of it. LOL I'm a meteorologist, graduated as of yesterday :) and there's a thunderstorm watch in my area now. Check out my video at YouTube - Thunderstorm Animation on Eris.

    Just an FYI. Open up the weather app and go to menu->demo. You can then scroll through all the weather overlays/animations.

    That will show you some of it, but not the full screen animation unfortunately.

    Don't ask, can't tell
    Between my ring and middle finger tips.
    Snow looks awesome. Small flakes gradually come down from the screen, the outside edges get frosted over like your looking out a window, and the widget itself gets ice that forms at the top corners and looks like it froze dripping down the side. Tight.

    There's a reason why the hurricane animation is rare; it truly blows. :rimshot:

    Those animations are truly annoying. Is there anyway to stop them.

    Change the clock. The thing is way too big anyway. I think most people just deal with it because of the weather...

    If you guys didnt know, there is a way to preview every weather effect on 2.1.. - Touch the weather widget to bring up the current weather and 5 day forecast - Press the Menu button - Press "Demo" - Slide up and down to change the effect.. now you dont have to wait for the weather to change to see the different effects.. the monsoon one sucks... water started pouring from the trackball. got my damn keyboard all wet [/joke]
