Forecast is a great little weather web app

There are so many weather apps. They tend to fall into two groups. Way too much information for me, or fluffy little icons that are pretty and just don't have enough of the information I want. A friend suggested I take a peek at Forecast, a free web app from the people who make a very serious...

WeatherBug Elite for iPhone adds real time lightning sensors

As I see it there are two kinds of weather programs.

You may already know all about Weather HD -- the app made a nice splash when it was released early in the iPad's life.

First Look: Weather HD for iPad

VIMOV's Weather HD combines standard weather forecasting with video backdrops. Although I doubt the application comes with the new age music track, you can tell from this preview that it focuses on looks. I was a little surprised to see the floaty utility-style palette. You'd think that new...
