Sometime it's off by locations. I use the weather channel app. I like it much better.

I have the weather bug app it's ok but I just like the stock weather app bc it's fast to upload.

The Accuweather app is my favorite. Between TWC and Weather Bug, there is quite a variety of choices to compliment the stock app. The stock app sometimes takes up to 20 or 30 Seconds to update. That doesn't mean there is a real problem.

So far I have found mine to be quite accurate. I can check it against twc app and they are within 1-2 degrees of each other.

Are the accuweather and twc apps free?
Yes they are.

There is nothing wrong with your stock weather app.. you have to change the setting from celcius to farenhiet!
Although, the accuweather app is much nicer than TWC app.

I don't think so. 38C is considerably warmer than 60F.

I use MyWeather. Great app, fairly accurate and had radar

I'm a weather guy and I use a few. MyWeather is on my main page, I too like the radar, trend and forecast display. It's especially nice to be able to rotate it to landscape and get full-screen radar.

I also use Aero Weather. It displays data from NOAA's NWS and is presents METAR data in a really nice format.

Finally, I have a link to my personal weather station data so I get accurate info from my front yard.

I have both TWC and Accuweather aps

They are free but I like the TWC better since it gives you a 10 day forecast and accuweather is only 5.
