PJNC284, I'd imagine gb is excellent, but in the Droid X section, speculation about it has been a little overdone, to put it in an understated way......

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.

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.


I think I finally found the current conditions, but it is tiny. I would also like some words (Partly cloudy, sunny, t-storms, etc) with it.  The same words that are displayed when you look at the information in the notifications window or the list of location.

 

Here is a rough markup.

For kicks and giggles, here what three weather apps look like on a 3.2" screen in landscape mode.

The current verison of the Weather Channel app. When you compare the amount of visible information to the image below this one, this UI is not user friendly.

The Dish Network weather app (provided by the Weather Channel and uses the old UI of the The Weather Channel app)

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

parkernathan, I love the weatherbug. HTC does not provide accurate location. So I installed fancy widget and weatherbug. Right on the money and has the HTC weather/ time skin. I would buy elite weatherbug but it has terrible ratings. Most say it has not been updated. Can you clarify ? Thanks

Elite removes the ads and gives you lightning maps and animated maps/cams, so it has some pretty amazing stuff in it for the price. As for updating, we're working as fast as we can to update to a new version and add new features, but it's been rough and we ran into a few issues. Rest assured the lightning and map features are alone worth the price, and we're working overtime to continuously update the app, with new updates coming soon. I'd go for it.
