    Default Any stable weather app for Optimus V?

    Any good and stable weather app for Op.V? I was using weather channel for a while but recent updates have made it very unstable. Locked up my phone a few times when it crashed. Accuweather and Weatherbug have bad reviews lately too saying they crash all the time. Any stable options out there?

    I use fancy widget pro or whatever and have it sync from weatherbug and I havent had any issues like that yet. Sometimes, when I first add the widget, it takes a minute for it to grab the info but after that it works well and I haven't had any problems.
    It takes less time to hit thanks than it does to type it out...

    Thanks, I downloaded that, checking out it now. I just wish Weather Channel worked as well as it does on my iPod touch.

    I don't even know an app, other than an official one, that would use weather channel.
    The go dev team also has a weather app called go weather that works well.
    It also, if you choose to use it, has a weather live wallpaper.
    Their weather app has the clock and such and has multiple themes that are free to use.

    I have the free WeatherBug app from the Market and it works great for me. It's my favorite cuz it has Severe Weather alerts in the background.

    I installed the free Weatherbug. Kinda like it. I think it's a keeper. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

    It also happens to have a live cam of my high school's track from the roof. Pretty cool. Instantly brought back memories of walking to the far end of the track, then ditching into the woods to cut class. Lol.

    I use Weather Buddy, and Instant Radar. Both are simple and small and provide what I need (not that I need a weather app to tell me it's 105 degrees outside!)

    verry simple and not intrusive and you can skin it settings you can set the refresh times etc. plus its very smooth on the v

    OK... I also need one to send 10" of rain is our way, just needs to pole your weather and push it our way! Raining in the 60's sounds fantastic!

    Weatherbug ended up being very inaccurate (said it was 97 when it was really 87).

    Deleted.

    What I found though is "Classic.Weather Notification" . Puts the temp in my notification bar, and provides a very simple detailed report when you touch the notification.

    I use My Cast Weather. It has a 2x2 widget with current + 3 day forecast, and generally works pretty well.

    I used Go weather for a while. Very accurate but I'm currently using Palmary Weather Pro. So far so good.

    I've used Weatherbug since the day I got my phone, I love it. I have it on my PC as well.
