    I was using the Weather Channel App until today. We had some winds, and receiving audible alerts on my phone was a deal breaker since there seems to be no way to turn them off. Very stupid for them not to let us turn that off. Using weather bug for now, but I think I may get Beautiful Widgets.

    I've been pushing Beautiful Weather for a while now and nobody liked to agree with me!

    I just upgraded WeatherBug to the Elite version for $1.99. The animated radar is very important to me (I plan to use it next summer while sailing on the Chesapeake Bay.) Overall, best $2 I've spent in a long time.

    how dare they! i've always had both, but have liked BW more than WWD.

    on a side note someone commented in the post on the main page about a recent update to BW draining the battery quickly, i have noticed that my battery has gone into the yellow twice today, seems a likely culprit....

    They pushed another update out early this evening. I have not noticed any battery drain on my device.

    maybe my phone was just acting up.

    hopefully it was the earlier update that drained it quickly and i have enough to get through the day (and night) tomorrow

    At first I used Weather Channel and used the small widget. But then it had problems updating the temp/conditions on the widget and acted weird. So I got rid of it and downloaded WeatherBug! Wow is that much more reliable! No problems so far and I've been running it for about a week. It has widgets too but they are uneccesary because it automatically puts the temp in the top info panel to the far left. This is nicer because it's not a running service so it takes up less ROM and congestion. Yet it still updates as often as you'd like. The menu for forecasts are just as nice as Weather Channel.

    I would recommend WeatherBug.

    I tend to use my web bookmarks more than I do widgets -- most widgets consume battery whether you're actively using them or not. The web is simply on demand.

    The best weather site I've found on the web - by far - is www.wunderground.com (Weather Underground). Great maps and radar selection, and they have a mobile version as well if you prefer to use it rather than the desktop browser version. Highly, highly recommended. Would be absolutely must-have if they had a widget for it.

    I do a lot of mountain biking up in NC and down here in SC and use this all the time to see where the rain is, where to ride, and get an idea of how much time I may have until the rain or the front moves in.

    Yeah I noticed it's better with that off too. I just put in my home zip code and have it set to update every hour. Works great.

    I use WeatherBug elite and I think it's great. Much better UI than the weather channel and the widget is a lot better too. You just have to be sure to back out of it rather than press home to get out or it will suck up a lot of juice.

    I agree with o2bnclemson, weatherbug mobile (i.wund.com) is awesome. Their mobile site was designed for the iphone, but it works great on the droid. Weatherbug elite is my second choice. I find the weather alerts and animated customizable radar in weatherbug elite very useful.

    When I clik on the link for Beautiful Widgets I get 'access denied'. Also, I can find Beautiful Widgets #2 in the market but not Beautiful Widgets (#1). Help!

    HTC is hounding the Beautiful widgets developer because it used to look like the HTC widgets. Even after he redesigned the appearance to not resemble HTC's design, they told him to pull the app until they review it. So I'd just wait for a while. It'll be back, I'm sure.

    I use Weatherbug. I like the real time updated temps in the notification bar that I can always see. This way I can keep the widget off my main homescreen and use that space for something else.

    Has anyone checked out Palmary Weather? It looks really promising aside the fact there is no widget yet.
