    I am still looking for the best weather app. Rainy Day is a good radar app. The default weather app on the Eris doesn't update automatically for me and it is tied to the huge space wasting clock on the home page.

    Weather and Radar.

    I use Weather Bug as my main free weather app. It allows you to share a screenshot of the weather info your viewing with others via SMS, MMS or email from the app's menu. It can also be configured to follow you to keep your current location updated. You can also view weather info at other locations. The live cameras at all locations allow you to see what's going on.

    Radar Now is my preferred radar app. It's somewhat basic but it also follows along to your current location. It gives you active radar images over an approximate two hour time span. Most weather apps do not do this.

    I used W.B.to send info on I-40 from Tx. to eastern Tn. Sat.

    A buddy and his wife was coming out of eastern Texas in a semi truck Saturday heading to Allentown Pennsylvania. I used screenshots from Weather Bug to send them camera views, current conditions, weather warnings and forecast across the entire area affected by the winter storm. I've never found another weather app that has the ability to take screenshots of the info you are viewing on your cellphone. The current conditions screen on Weather Bug is so responsive to changing wind directions. I've been to one of the local monitoring stations and the wind direction viewed on my cellphone was only a few seconds delayed from the actual direction and wind speed at the location.

    Here in central Ohio there is multiple locations where the radar is taken from on the Radar Now app. One is at the R.A.F.B.at the southeast side of Columbus. Another is at the airport at Ohio State University.

    What's the weather app you've been using? Does it have active radar or a single view ?

    Radar Now just has a single view here in Oregon and I have to change the pan and zoom every time I open it. Same with WB. Rainy Day can be used as Google Earth. Still looking for a weather app as good as Pocket Weather. note to Chris: this input box is wider than my screen making it REALLY hard to post here.

    The Accuweather app is terrible and has no widget.

    Further use leads me to like WeatherBug with Wunder and Rainy Days.

    I use the tiny weather widget for my home screen, then I have my local accuweather animated radar map saved to my favorites. Its works great for me cuz when I open the web page it displays the current radar. :dft012:wink
