    As I'm sure many of you know, finding the "right" weather app/widget is a royal PITA...
    I've tried out Fancy Widgets (old version now pulled, so waiting for his new development to see if better), I had Beautiful Widgets but personally I just didn't like it. I know others swear by it, it was purely a personal choice for me.
    I have tried WeatherBug and Weather Channel, but felt they were too "seperate" from the UI, I am trying for an integrated sort of UI on the phone, instead of just another iPhone UI clone.

    Today I stumbled upon this new App/Widget, Animated Weather.
    So far I love it. I'm running it for next few days to test out battery life and OS responsiveness, but so far it's sweet.

    Check it out, there is a free and a Pro version, so try the free and see what you think.

    Animated Weather for Android - Weather forecast application. The exquisitely realistic video effects of cloudiness, rain and snow provide the vivid sensation of current or future weather conditions for more than 50000 locations over the world.

    1. ability to use GPS to track location
    2. animated widget
    2. animated wallpaper

    Also, what is fps? (forgive my ignorance...)

    I believe here FPS stands for frames per second. This measures the number of frames that the phone is rendering. The higher the number the better. On monitors it's called Hz.

    Yep, the FPS is Frames Per Second.

    I've put it through it's runners over the weekend.
    Doesn't seem to have any dramatic impact on my battery life, obviously I had to add it to Task Killer's ignore list (forgot first day and wondered why wasn't updating...duh!)

    And it seems to be pretty accurate with the updates. Had some showers over the weekend, and it was accurate when updated to reflect that.
    Makes me happy.

    My main reason for a decent weather app is I love to ride my motorcycle, and nothing sucks more than wrong weather forecasts and being caught out in a storm.

    Well, I wanted to go to their website today to show a friend, it appears to have been hacked ! wow, guess someone didn't like them.

    Anyway, I upgraded to the pro version, and am pretty happy with it. Miserable outside today, and the app looks just as miserable too... haha

    It appears that they are giving the pro version away if you post a review and link their site. I'm still evaluating, but so far it's a very nice program with great animations. It seems far more refined then weatherbug and weather channels apps. Only using 12MB of memory versus weatherbugs 30MB or so

    ive been using the free app for a little bit and it seems to be quick and reliable. i think they should include different background for different areas (city, rural, suburban or maybe even big cities). it would also be cool if they had a live wallpaper/widget. all and all i'd give it a 4/5 right now... that could change if they update some things.
