    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.

    I am guessing you are talking about radar from news and/or NWS websites. They are java/flash animations. We can not do that with any Android yet.

    If you are talking about weather bug, you cant do it on the free app. ou will have to buy the paid version. The animated radar on there is good. I find that it has about the same lag time (5-6 minutes) as websites have. That means that the rain will hit about 5 minutes before what the radar shows.

    A free program called Radar Now has animated weather radar.

    If using the The Weather Channel app/widgit, you press the ">" (play button) on the map screen.

    Found this thread after noticing mine wouldn't play either and I can safely say after about six attempts that play button does diddly-squat on my phone. It shows rain in Houston but no clouds or precipitation shows up on the map so even the still radar is nonfunctional on mine. Couldn't pull up clouds in the Breckenridge area earlier either.

    Edit: Radar Now radar animation works for me too. Thanks indolent!
