    I have always installed the Weather channel app on all of my Android phones. I use the wide widget at the top of my main home screen as well as it is very useful in giving me the weather info i need quickly. For some reason on the Nexus 4 I am seeing very high usage of the battery and it seems to be what drains a good percentage of my battery during the day. Last check was 55% of my battery usage was used up by the weather channel app. I tried disabling the gps function of the app and that did not seem to help. I completely uninstalled the app now and will update to see if there is any change from there. In the past 3 hours it has slowed my battery drain considerably but I will wait a few days to report back and see if this corrects what I consider horrible battery life. Just an FYI for any of you folks out there using the Weather Channel App!

    I experienced the same with Yahoo weather app. I found it took up a constant 43 percent battery life so I uninstalled it.
