    Simple question, MyCast AKA Garmin have basically let the app go down the hole, this is an app I've always counted on, but I need to find a better alternate as they have neglected to update it to iPhone 5, nor have they updated in the last year. Do you guys have any good suggestions?

    I use weather underground. Push alerts, radar and map will show watch and warning areas.

    I use The Weather Channel app. I really like it.

    I use a bunch, but the one I have on one of my screens (versus in a folder) is Weather Live.

    Others: Weather HD, Weather On, Fahrenheit.

    Most of the one's I just named will put the temp in a badge on their app icons so you can immediately see the current temp without opening the app. Fahrenheit also has the same thing, but as Celsius if that's your thing.

    Weather Bug Elite Pro. Also gives a radar look at your weather.

    Same here, but it crashes quite a bit on my 4S.

    Thanks for the Replies, I'm looking to be done on 2/8 when my subscription ends with mycast.

    Im currently using accuweather. i previously had used weatherlive and weatherhd. weatherlive has a badge icon. had a headache from watching the live screen. but i like accuweather. gives maps and radar also 15-day forecast. a plus for me.

    I use a combination of Weatherbug Elite (Pro) and Weather Underground. Both offer true real-time data. Other apps are delayed by at least 20 minutes (Weather Channel) or more. Also both of these apps have radars that update more frequently. As another user noted, the mapping customization on Weather Underground is unmatched, and their push notifications are very timely. I like the current conditions (temp, rain rate, etc..) on Weatherbug.

    Both Weatherbug and Weather Underground offer free versions. I paid to get rid of ads on both (Weather Underground has an in-app upgrade option to get rid of the ad).
