Weather apps that are NICE to the battery!
Ok, Samsung's got a built in AccuWeather widget/service, but it's not all that wonderful. GoogleNow has weather capability, but you can't really set up a widget for JUST the weather card, you end up with whatever card happens to be at the top of the list. Anyone know any weather apps or widgets that are battery-kind? It's been my experience that they're some of the worst battery-hogs around unless they're baked into the Android build (TouchWIZ or OptimusUI or whatever...LG's built in weather widgets were really good and very battery friendly).

Re: Weather apps that are NICE to the battery!
I used 1Weather and really liked it and had no problem with battery drain. I Changed to BWeather only because I like the background animations. It also doesn't drainn the battery much. With both programs I update at least every hour and have weather alert warnings enabled. In both cases I also have at least 4 different locations being monitored.
