    What weather app do you use?

    I have seen a few different weather apps out there and am currently using weatherbug. I was curious to know what everyone else is using and which one seems to be the best? Thanks in advance.

    i use berryweather, it is a bit on the pricey side for a weather app but i have no complaints and it is far better and cleaner looking than any of the other apps ive used.

    I use Berryweather and IMO it is the best weather app I have tired. It runs 9.95 so it's not free. I used BBweather before that and had no complaints using it. I like all the options that you have with Berry and the ability to scroll through all your locations just by swiping your finger.

    I use BerryWeather as well, but until a few weeks ago I used weather eye touch. It was not as fancy but very light in file size and memory use.

    BerryWeather - clean looking and my phone works great with it so I do find value in that. Worth the money IMO.

    Ive never used it personally, if you want free weather eye touch is a solid free weather app. You can get it here and try it out.

    Weatherbug, best one for free, I honestly dont see that big of a difference in memory use when i have not had it installed, I set it to update every 4 hours and manually set the location so it's not searching. Love the alerts the best around (and it's flood season in the midwest) and it's FREE. I dont feel you should have to pay for a weather app. I also have my other locations setup on Viigo but man is it sloooowwww

    Last time I used it, no.

    Its definitely not top of the line in many respects. It is a smaller file size (3.3kb) and I didn't notice any memory leaks, that's why I liked it. I'm sold on WeatherBerry now, $10 is a bit steep but worth it IMHO.

    I really think you would fall in love with BerryWeather. I was the same way but decided to give it a try. It's a very beautiful app with tons of options. I was a WB user for months, but I saw the light with BW.
