    Beautiful widgets is the best. Combines both clock and weather with a ton of customizations.

    By the same token, the purpose of a weather app can be fulfilled by a "window"

    When I was fed with the stock weather widget from ASUS not updating the forecast, I got "fancy widgets" which is quite simple and does the job
    It is free, you can choose to fetch the forecasts from Google or Accuweather, and so far it refreshes the info without any problem, it even recovered nicely after I killed it with my task manager.

    I like HD widgets. They're optimized for tablet displays.

    No matter what I install on my devices, I always go back to The Weather Channel app. As far as i'm concerned, it's the best weather app.

    HD Widgets gets my vote as well. Not as detailed as some apps, but has all the important info and looks and works great on a tablet

    I have Fancy Widgets for the overview, but then like My-Cast Weather for the more detailed views (radar, anyway). I also like that My-Cast allows you to put temperature on the notification bar.

    I install the app on the android tablet pc that I bought from ESPOW and I enjoy this app very well.

    am i the only one that actually likes the stock asus widget? i like that its very understated compared to beautiful widgets which i use on my phone.

    are there update issues or something with the asus widget? i guess i havnt really payed much attention to its accuracy

    I use hd widgets for quick fix of weather, and it looks cool. But for detailed forecast, alerts, and radar I also use weather bug elite,, works great

    I've got Beautiful Widgets, and I think it looks great. They have tablet-specific widgets now, and there are dozens of skins you can download (for free) to really personalize it.

    What battery widget are you using in this screenshot? I hate the Asus one, but like to see both tablet and dock batteries...

    I recently installed Elecont weather, it is the best weather forecast app I've seen so far. It has an hour by your forecast, plus also has earthquakes alerts.

    I'm using Weather Channel app & widget. It seems to be updating frequently enough, the widget has what I'm interested in, and, it is free.

    I'm looking for something for my shiny new Nexus 7.

    Ideally something with a 5-day forecast. I don't need or want a clock with it so I think that throws out Beautiful Widgets / Fancy Widgets / Widgets HD or whatever.

    Weather bug elite is hands down best weather app for phone or tablets. They even have live cameras. Doppler radar is great(live) and notifications are great if you choose to use them.
