    Does anyone know a good weather application I can download on my Flyer?

    I currently have Weather Bug Elite and I love it.. but it fits better on my HTC Inspire. So if I pull up certain alerts.. like the tornado warning we had yesterday.. it doesn't show the whole message. I normally use Accuweather on my computer because I like their radar the best. But I've always been a loyal Weather Bug fan since 1998 or 1999?.. somewhere around there. but does anyone have any suggestions?

    also, does anyone have a suggestion for a better browser? sometimes the pages don't load right at all. like for my work email, it won't let me scroll over and it won't make it smaller on the screen so I can see everything.

    Give firefox a try, should be available on the market. I tend to stick to the stock browser anyway just because firefox doesn't support flash.

    Sadly dont have any weather recommendations. Here in california, i cant remember the last time i saw a weather alert. I do have weatherbug elite, and I dont see any issues with things not fitting on the screen. Everything seems to look fine.

    I actually really like the Accuweather app in the market. I would recommend downloading that. It works really well and the widget is great too.

    The built in HTC Weather Widget is supported by accuweather. It sent tornado warnings to my notification bar last week when western MA had their tornadoes.
    It actually surprised me when the notifications automatically popped up.
    It's installed by default.

    it only happens when the 'severe weather' alert pops up.. or air quality control or a tornado watch. it just makes it so tiny to the point where you can't read it so I end up switching to my phone to check that real quick lol.

    No radar images but pretty much everything else. Gives you a detailed 10 day forecast with many settings and formatting options as far as time, location etc. I like the widget because you can see the upcoming weeks weather without having to actually open the application and it fits nicely on the home screen.
