    It would have been really nice to have had a comparison of accuracy, or even compare what gave more conservative information and what not. Weather accuracy is very important to me. I've been using The Weather Channel for the last year, but I'd be interested in how it compares in accuracy, unless they all get the same info from the same place.

    Weather apps? Kinda boring. I converted to GO apps on my DROID RAZR MAXX.

    I guess I wouldn't mind seeing an article on the different Android launchers.

    What about Weather Bug?? Been using on Android for years and I consider it the best!. What kind of review is this not even including Weather Bug!

    For iPhone, I strongly recommend Weather Pod. A truly stunning visual weather app that has various great weather related features.

    AccuWeather is the worst app I've ever tried, it constantly gave the wrong info, never updated itself properly with the correct info, so I went back to the tried and true TWN app!

    Used to have TWC app until they ruined it with the last update. Using Raindar for my radar, and Pro Weather alert for my warnings.

    I used to use Accuweather. The App is beautiful. I got tired of how slow it loaded. I switched to Weatherbug. I also used 1Weather on my last phone. I liked it but it didn't have radar. Looks like they might have added that so it may warrant another go.

    When the Weather Ch started naming winter storms and making up fake tornado terms, I haven't watched them, or will put one of their apps on any device. Thankfully Direct TV finally got smart and kicked them to the curb too.....

    I've had a "Smartphone" for years and occasionally buy apps that suit me. I bought WeatherBug a couple of years back simply because it displayed radar and cloud mass. Others do this too and to me, it's all I need to know on any given day, which way the inclement weather is moving.

    I like Tornado GPS even though it is in its infancy for the ability to display radar data in real 3d. It is the only mobile app to date to do so. I use Radar Scope first and Tornado GPS when tornados may be close by to see the structure inside the storm.

    What about a weather app for COMPUTERS? Bing's weather is all about travel and tourism, I want a scientific weather app?:??:
