    I use to use intellicast on my storm two to see animated radar. It doesn't seem to be animated on my droid. Do I have a setting wrong, or does anyone have a different site or program they recommend?

    There are several apps that have animated radar. I believe the Weather Channel does, but unfortunately my Droid isn't near by but I can't confirm.

    Anybody else have some weather apps they can recommend with animated radar?

    Thanks for the heads-up. This is a nice little app. It earned a space on my second screen.:)

    Yeah, +1 for Radar Now. that's going to come in handy now that storm chase season is rapidly approaching.

    I like Radar Now only because it's the only one that shows an animated version of radar.

    My Xscope browser doesn't even show animated radar from most sites, it's something to do with the way these weather sites broadcast animated Giffs's.

    Here is a workaround:

    Android Mock Animated GIF

    Uses NOAA radar. The "FMKX" in the url is for Milwaukee's Radar loop.

    Here is a list of all radar sites. Just swap out FMKX and replace with a different site.

    All US NOAA radar sites sorted by city name

    Found out how to do this on this site comment 99:

    Issue 3422 - android - Animated GIF not working in browser - Project Hosting on Google Code

    I didn't like Radar now because it was too limited. Plus with this I am able to pinch and zoom in the browser and choose a different radar site unlike Radar now.

    The paid version of WeatherBug includes an animated radar and more also.

    Radar now is ok, however I'd prefer that I can zoom in if possible.

    Being a pilot, it helps. :)

    Truly, I like iMap Weather, for the radar presentation, and you can:

    Loop it, set transparency.

    Only drawback to me is it is kinda slow, don't know if it is because of google maps integration or not. (emailed googel and imap, thought what if they could make a wx radar layer for our maps app, that might work out better).

    But for presentation, I love it when it's up and looping!

    I liked it. It was really slow. I left my hotel room for 20 minutes with a full battery and when I got back my batter was almost dead. I looked and it said the radar program was the reason. Did I do something wrong?

    i like radar now, but I am looking for one I can see most of the US with. When I am flying I end up covering a lot of ground. the ones suggested are just local only. thanks in advance.

    Try rainy days. Long press zoom out double tap zoom in quick press play/pause animation. About the only thing it does is show the weather.

    Thank you sir.

    End note, you only need the last three letters in the url.

    Well this sucks, I try loading the radar (we have serious weather in the Nashville area) and I get "file size must be less then 500K" and a white screen. Worked last night with no issues. I've tried both 3G and wifi with the same message.

    Rainy Days is pretty cool. Weather Bug is more detailed but if you just want radar this is nice.
