    I use and love WeatherBug Elite on my iPhone and have downloaded it for the iPad as well. I haven't received my iPad yet. I also have AccuWeather, Weather Channel Max, and WunderMap waiting to try out as well.

    WeatherBug Elite or Weather Channel, I have them both cause they are free right now, so get them both.

    Best advice because you never know what updates and/or price increases could happen. This way you are covered and can pick what happens to be your favorite at the time and instal and use it.

    Weather channel personally. It's way more clean and organizes things in a way that you click to open information, unlike weather bug elite that packs the screen full of all the info, even if you do not wish to see a certain aspect. My 2. They were both free there for a while, not sure if they still are...

    If so, check em both out

    I don't have an iPad but do have an iPhone.

    I use Meteo Groups Weatherpro for Europe. I also subscribe to the additional weather functions. The only think wrong with the software is that there is no proper help, nor a description for all the icons.

    The forecasts tend to be more accurate than other providers that are paid for by the organisation I work for.

    I have the following installed:
    TWC Max+
    Accu Weather
    iWeather Pad
    Weather Bug

    The. Weather Channel is my app of choice on my iPhone but I like all of them on my iPad. Can't choose one favorite app on the iPad side :)

    Agreed. I like the layout of Weather Channel better after trying all the free ones.

    I just go to nooa.gov in Safari, type in my zip code, bookmark it. Some things really don't need a dedicated app, unless you're obsessed with the minute details of weather. Although their storm cloud looping thing would be nice, it doesn't work on iPad, but you can still see the static picture.

    I vote for Weather Channel myself. Clean, well organized, great animations, easy navigation on the bottom - everything you need for a weather check.

    The developer of Weather HD gave me 2 codes, so if there aren't any still left in the app/code sharing forum, PM me for it :)

    It's a very simple weather app mind you but I have no use for this other code.

    Edit: The code is gone now sorry

    It would be nice to see weather statistics added those these apps. Coldest day, hottest day, graphics to show trends, compare two places, etc.

    You know, accuweather has turned out to be my go-to. I love the simple, clean interface, and the little severe weather alert feature. It's actually on my dock now.
