    Question completely replace Weather app?

    The built-in Weather app on the Incredible utterly fails to give me useful information. First off, it only tells the current weather, with no way to see the forecast for later in the day. Second, it's WRONG!!! This morning it was showing Cloudy long after buckets of rain had been pouring down.

    I like the look of the standard widget on the Home screen, and the weather animations are a blast, but without accurate useful weather it's a waste. Recommendations appreciated.

    The android news/weather widget is great IMO. It does everything you want and is accurate to boot! Have you tried changing the refresh times on the HTC weather widget, because mine is also accurate.

    I prefer the android widget more so because of the news that can be customized, and the ability to show the weather at different times during the day. Tapping on the HTC widget will bring up a forecast for the week BTW.

    Hope this helped some.

    Sweet. Snowstorm is the only weather widget I've seen that shows 6 hour increments. Most of them only have daily forecasts, which doesn't tell me nearly enough. I'd be even happier with 3 or 4 hour forecasts, but 6 will do. Thanks.

    All these weather apps work, I like the weather channel. I do use the stock App too. Think it Depends on your preference as to what you like. The stock App is pretty cool for a quick glance. When I really need an up to the minute update on the weather I just look or go outside, easy. "Old School" I guess, haha...

    +1 on Beautiful Widgets. HTC Weather uses Accuweather, which I have notice is highly inaccurate for me. It will be 10:00 pm but it will show that it is still daylight outside. Not so with Beautiful Widgets which has always shown to be pretty darn accurate.

    Beautiful Widgets is a payed app on the marketplace but you can add skins to your liking. Here is a pic of a skin I'm working on, but their are lots to choose from.

    looks the same as htc..

    the one i use shows like a 6hr of each day example Thursday 5am-11am 61F, Thursday 11am-5pm 70F.. a little more in depth.. i really like mine.. snowstorm

    i do custom colors too.. green and red.. it looks really nice and works great for me. and its 4x1 or smaller.. but its doesnt take up half the screen..
