Default Doppler Radar Widget

I'm looking for some recommendations on a Doppler Radar WIDGET.

I've tried many applications which have fantastic in-app Doppler radars, but none have widgets.

Here's a list:
  • Weatherbug Elite - DOES have a widget, but it's doesn't resize very well.
  • Radar now
  • BeWeather Pro
  • Rainy Days

Recommendations, please?

AccuWeather for Android is pretty good. It comes with a 4*2 weather widget with clock. click on the link to see what it looks like.

Radarscope is an excellent radar app, however there are no widgets included with it.

Is there any benefit over radar now? Do you use a subscription service with this app?

I've been using BeWeather Pro for a while and like it the best. Here are some of the features I like:

1. Compatible with Beautiful Widget clock skins.
2. Has three different radar choices, plus visible and IR sattelite.
3. Can have multiple locations, and with pro version, can select nearby personal weather stations from WxUnderground.
I have a PWS at my house, which is why I originally bought BW Pro, but it really is a nice widget.

Edit: wait - are you looking for a widget that also has a radar service, or are you trying to find an actual radar widget that shows radar all the time? I just re-read the op and seems I may have misunderstood the request.

That would be a pretty cool widget. Could be a data hog, but if it had some kind of refresh toggle built in, that would definitely be a useful utility.

I already use Be Weather Pro.

I'm interested in a weather widget with a radar so I can setup a geeky weather screen on my device. This way I can see multiple things on one screen without opening the 3 or 4 apps that have different details I enjoy in relation to weather. I think I'll just use a high tech radar such as radar scope or pykl3 and open up the radar when it's needed.

Edit : something like this, although this radar sucks.
