    Does anyone know how to make the radar animate either in a weather app or web site? For example, when I click on a radar image that normally shows rain looping, all the droid does is show where the rain is located on the map with no movement. Make sense? Thanks for any help. I already have All Animations checked in the Sound and Display Settings.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!


  2. The radar in The Weather Channel app can be animated.

    Posted this in your other thread also but the free app Radar Now does this.

    Not being able to display animated .gif files, like those used for weather radar loops, is a known issue with the OS.

    I have yet to find the true reason for it, but the iPhone has the same issue. So possibly some licensing or security thing?

    From what I understand, applications that do display graphic loops disassemble the original source .gif file, breaking it into individual .png files which are then just displayed one at a time. (thus animated, heh)
