    The Weather Channel as far as apps ...

    But for animated radar, (since I work outside) I use Intellicast - Local and National Weather Forecast, Radar, Maps and Severe Report ... I have a bookmark on one of my screens for my local radar, so with one tap I can see if rain or storms are in my area and might screw up work.

    Most of the weather apps will even send you notifications about severe weather in your area. But for me, it's The Weather Channel app. :)

    I used really like Weatherbug. But I have done some real world comparisons with some of the apps and the NOAA website at the same time and I have found that AccuWeather is the most accurate. I also like 1Weather for some really cool features but it isn't always as accurate.

    I really wish NOAA would make an app of their own. There is an unofficial one but it is junk.

    Yeah I'm surprised NOAA doesn't have an app ... you would think they would, and you would think it would be worth it's weight. You would THINK anyway LOL :biggrin:

    I would buy it because that is pretty much as accurate as you can get.

    I've tried just about all of them and have settled on Weatherbug Elite. It seems to be the most accurate for my location anyway.

    I like weather bug because of all the features when you open it. Weather Channel one links to a Web Page for radar and the forecast for the next few days isn't as robust. Accuweather I have in my beautiful widgets but I hate it takes you to a Web Page for radar.

    I'm using HD Widgets and Weatherbug. Weatherbug has a smaller "town" near me which gives me a more accurate forecast/reading than the other locations offered by any other app I've seen.

    Another vote for Weatherbug. I love the fact that you have everything in one app. It also has a weather station right down the street from me. I use the radar all the time for everything from when to walk the dog in between showers to camping to when we need to shut the equipment down at work when a strong thunderstorm hits. I find it to be very accurate.

    Of those choices, I'd go with AccuWeather.

    As far as a dedicated weather app goes, I'll cast yet another vote for WeatherBug. Great features, and it's always been very accurate for me.
