    Ok...I've downloaded about 5 different weather apps and I like them all. Does anyone have a favorite weather app since Apple didn't include one on the iPad?

    I love WeatherBug. I've tried many of the others and I like that WeatherBug has all the information you could possibly want and then some all on the same page. Also I like the data from WeatherBug more than other sources.

    I second each of those - but in the opposite order as I find myself checking Weather HD more often than not. :p

    +1 Weatherbug and for the iPad for myself it was free. I paid 1.99 for the premium on my iPhone.

    I have Weather Bug, AccuWeather and The Weather Channel (TWC MAX+). At first I thought I liked the Weather Bug but after using I like TWC MAX+ the best. WB is just way too busy (like a big Widget) and I like the layout and local forecast videos on TWC. AccuWeather is the pits of interface design.

    Agreed on the AccuWeather interface being terrible. I deleted it almost instantly and wanted a refund. It's so bad I felt I deserved money back on my free "Purchase" :D

    I have Accuweather and The Weather Channel's apps and almost always use TWC's. Accuweather and Weatherbug always seem to sugar coat the forecast and TWC's seems to be more accurate.

    I also have Radar Scope, which is an awesome radar-based app. There is no forecasting, just raw radar data....

    WeatherBug for Shizzle. I love their map overlays.

    I have this one, too. I bought it on the iPhone a year ago. And the devs aren't cheap. The released a new version as a universal binary. Major props!

    Hmm, I guess I'm in the minority of preferring accuweather's simple, stylized interface (free version) for quick checks. I do agree their forecasting is often more wishful thinking than anything, though.

    I use TWC + Max the most along with Radar Scope and Weather Alert for very timely warning info.

    Used to use weatherbug didn't like the interface as well after comparing several other data sources to theirs I realized the data was badly delayed and or inaccurate.
