    I like the idea of having the weather display in my notifications but it is the one built into iOS, which is powered by Yahoo Weather. I've always used the Weather Channel app and I'm noticing the current weather displayed by both are off by more than five degrees.

    Anybody else with both apps noticing this as well?

    Just checked mine. In Miami it's 66F in our weather app and TWC app says 63F. So it's off by 3 for me.

    It looks like Yahoo tends to provide higher temperatures, then. Maybe I'm just OCD but it drives me nuts and I'm more inclined to trust TWC. Hopefully TWC will update their app and allow it to show up in my notifications just like Yahoo's.

    Agreed. I like TWC app better but I hate having to open it when I can just slide down the bar and see our weather app. Hopefully we can add 3rd party apps to the notifications one day. Sigh. :(
