    Has anyone got any recommendations for a weather app? I'm only using the default Apple weather app and it's often wrong and too basic.
    Thanks.

    Have been using MegaWeather for some time.

    I wish there was an option to hide some of the Apple apps (like you can with Nike+) but I guess stuffing them into folders works. ;)

    I'm currently beta testing Weather HD which is incredibly nice visually. At the moment, only larger towns or cities are included but I'm sure they'll add more.

    Ok, thanks for all the replies. I think I'll probably get Mega Weather, it looks pretty good.

    Oh it is good. hahahah

    I remember the dev first posted codes for it on this site. Nabbed one but would easily pay for it again if I had to.

    I know you asked for an app, but I stick with i.wund.com It's got a really nice, full screen, weather map with animation. I'm still looking for the perfect weather app. MegaWeather, as mentioned here, doesn't appeal to me.

    Here No More
    Hi,

    I use Mega Weather and Weathebug Elite and like both very much.

    The link that was posted by f e a r l e s s is also a very good source.

    Two other weather apps worth looking into are:

    The Weather
    The app incorporates data from http://www.wunderground.com. It's got a much more native feel for anyone that enjoys the iOS UI. The Google Map integration with the maps is a plus. I can say it still has a little ways to go to be a top competitor with some of the others, but the polish given to the interface and the fact it's universal have me using it as my primary all-around weather app.

    Radarscope
    For anyone in the USA that is a radar junky and trying to determine how close severe weather is, I'd recommend Radarscope. It's a universal build that provides you with a bevy of radar products to view on a black map. It's much easier to focus in on intense storms heading your way or spotting hook echos and the like. So if you're looking to focus more on incoming storms/precipitation this app is by far the best. It's also recently added in warning boxes for the United States so you can quickly jump to an area afflicted with severe weather.
