    Just curious as to what you guys all use for a weather app? Maybe im to picky but i have a hard time finding one that i seem to really like.. Also how about a good website for a good radar something that shows more than 1 or 2 hours ahead lol.. :drinkup:

    I have 5 that I check. Two are moving radar (RadarNow and a shortcut to to accuweather's moving radar). I also have weather channel, accuweather, and weatherbug.

    I mostly use the two radar apps during events to help with decision making. I like to consult multiple sources to get a better idea.

    I also watch all four networks and the weather channel before storms too. I'm a little neurotic.

    NOAA seems to be updated more frequently and I like the short term forecast. I use Weatherbug most often. And Accuweather for the long range forecast. But I have an android. I'm sure iPhone apps are available for them al.

    I use Rainy Days from the Google Play store. I have tried quite a few radar apps, this one works best for me. For weather, I have the Accuweather widget on my home screen on my S4.

    That weather.gov is a nice radar overview of the area and fast loading. Now if I can just figure out the dbz for a more accurate reading.

    we use wunderground and the app is pretty good too. I just wish there was available futurecast radar other than waiting for the networks

    Do any of these apps show snow depth charts , so I know how many inches it snow in what areas. I have a Android phone. Is there one worth paying for that shows more information than the free ones. Right now I just use Accuweathers web site on my phone. Thanks for any info:help:
