    I'm a brand new RAZR MAXX user. I was at first disappointed to not find a stock weather app (it's not in the app list), until my daughter showed me that she gets it with a widget. So, I've now got the weather widget on the screen and it works well.

    However, I don't want/need the widget. It takes up too much space and I just don't need the info to be that handy. I just want an icon that I can press to see the weather (like all my other app icons). Does anyone know how I can get at the stock weather app via an icon?

    (I prefer not to install another weather app just so I can have an icon. The stock app works well.)

    I have WeatherBug and it runs in the background. I have a notification in the system tray, and it will let me know when there is severe weather.

    If you use the stock weather widget you mentioned you can long press it, release, then you can resize it to the size of a icon. Then when you press on it it will show the forecast
