Default A Better Weather App

This stock weather app stinks.
The most important thing to me is to see live radar and satellite, but with this stock app you have to navigate way too much, and then it is only the size of half the screen, (like looking at my iphone). which weather apps are you folks using, cause clearly this one stinks.

I'm using Weatherbug Elite. It works well and has all the features you mentioned.

Default weather apps

weatherbug elite is good, but IMO, the most versatile weather app is eweather HD..it has widgets for everything (satellite and radar and they are customizable..ie you can layer alerts on them). It isn't the most user-friendly but it's widgets are worth the curve. PYKL3 and Radarscope are the best pure radar apps, but don't have widgets.

1weather has probably the best interface.

thanks, I will give eweather a look.

I am a long time user of radar scope, even convinced my entire police department to get it, but that was when I was with apple.
Now I am on android and it's $29.99 in the play store (I don't wanna pay them twice after all the parading I did for them)

I can understand that, but I just looked at the play store and it shows 9.99 for me (after logging out that is and on my note 3). I don't think I would pay 29.99, but I have it for my wife iphone and my android devices, so to me it's worth 10 on each device. Also take a look at PYKL3, it's 9.99 too, and has a lot of funtcionality but it isn't as polished as radarscope.

Default an email can't hurt

Hey, send radar scope an email tell them about some of the 'good press' you've given them. You might not even get a reply, but it can't hurt. I've noticed __ with some other companies __ that some of these newer and smaller companies care about their customers, and will do things to help

can't hurt

good luck

Default another option

Intellicast is good too and if you are into widgets you can try websnap (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....license&hl=en). There is a free trial version to play with.

I use websnap to pull down pieces of pages from accuweather as widgets. The biggest image on this screen shot is websnap pulling from accuweathers website. The bottom graph ia from an app called weatherbomb. You can also use websnap to pull other parts of pages too, not just weather.
