Thanks for the explanation. I thought for a second I was reading something written by the Professor on Gilligan's Island though (with all due respect). Wow. Thanks.

I agree with you there droidsw. Add having the icons within an arc, plus the arc on the upper portion of the Weather Channel application. It makes me want to pull my hair out. Both of the arcs reduced the scrolling area down so much that portrait view is barely usable on my 3.2" screen Droid Eris. Forget about using it in landscape. I even tried on the Thunderbolt. It wasn't worth keeping on the phone. If I had access to the old UI of the Weather Channel application, I would use it. That version was usable and worked well. Do their developers not test these things?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

There is one thing that puzzles me about Weatherbug's application. Where is the screen / information about the current weather conditions. I can find the current temperature and wind direction, but nothing that tells me if it is sunny, rainy, snowing outside. The closest thing I can find seems to be the forecast only. That is the one thing I miss from the The Weather Channel application.

The last time I updated the WC app, the icons moved from the arc on the top to the bottom. At the top was bad, now it's a sanity check. I emailed them and told them I don't like playing a slot machine with their rapidly spinning icons trying to land on the right one just to get the radar.........

And, I could discuss weather apps all day. However, anyone starts ONE more bleeping thread about gingerbread and they can lock me up in a padded room with the Weather Channel app and I will mumble and talk to myself until the meds kick in.

Hee hee! I get that a lot. I can get pretty technical in my explanations.

What would you like to see? Basically a conditions icon that tells if it's rainy, sunny, etc., at your location? I could put in a request for it and see what we could do. Our meteorologists might be able to come up with this sort of thing. I don't believe our stations automate it.

Then again, I have seen us offer this in browser plugins, etc., so it probably wouldn't be hard to pull off.
