    Weather Widget (yr.no) <yes it is spelled like that on the market
    Its free..comes with a flip clock and is connected to the Norwegian Meterologist Institute. Has widgets up to 1 , 3, 7 days.
    To me..if i didnt have Weather Widget Toggle or Beautiful Widgets; for a free app, its great. Check it out.

    I like the Rainy Days. It knew right from the moment I opened it up right where I was and I love the zoom. This is a great app. Thanks fantom557 for the tip.

    Free one do all that for me.

    I'm using Radar Now, I'm not happy with that and I also have The Weather Channel which is pretty nice. I'm going to try Rainy Days right now.
    Huuuummm.

    Heeeeeee. I like it any way.

    I've seen some comments a while ago that Weatherbug is a bit of a battery hog. Is that true?

    Huh??? I know I don't use Weatherbug on my PC for some of those reasons, however I don't think that's a reason not to use it on Android, especially since I've not heard of any of those problems with it on Android.

    I think you're lumping in the PC and BB versions with the Android a little too much. They're completely different as far as I'm concerned. As far as location choices, I have zero problems plugging in a zip code or a city name and finding what I want.

    Weather Channel does that as well.



    I use Weatherbug on the computer but found Weather Channel a better fit for me on the Droid.
