    Weather

    any opinion Weather Bug versus Weather Channel...most concerned about stability of Droid. are they both heavy in adware? do they both run constantly in background...affect sleeping of device?

    I used Weather Bug for the last month, just uninstalled it. I didn't notice any issues with battery use or network use. What frustrated me is that for the last 4 days instead of showing the weather graphic (clouds for cloudy, rain for rain, etc) it has shown the red warning triangle. Why? Because somewhere in the county 50 miles to the North of me there's a forest that has a red flag warning. That made the widget worthless to me.

    Re:Weather

    I use Accuweather and have for the last year on my Blackberry and now on the Droid. I am very happy with it.

    I think weatherbug is a lot more gimmicky, but interesting.

    I think the weather channel is more straight forward and

    I like how it can tell the weather in a particular city/area.

    You can disable the red triangle warning system. Just thought I would let you know. I have been using WeatherBug and have had no problems with it whatsoever. I didn't like Weather Channel, it has a different layout (if you will) and I didn't like it.

    Believe me, I've tried. I went into the settings and disabled everything regarding the warning and alerts system. But all that affects is your notifications bar. It has no effect on the widget.

    How do I change the default city?

    I put the Weather Channel on my Droid and picked two cities, where I live and where I work (about 15 miles part). It defaults to the city where I work but I want the default where I live. Since it is new I have only checked it at work is that because of the GPS it is defaulting to where I work due to when I am checking it?

    I really prefer for it to show my home location ALL the time and then let me pick other cities on an individual basis is this possible I did not see an option to change it.

    Thank you.
