    iPhone weather app?

    I'm looking for an iPhone weather app and I'm curious what the mags use. Most of the apps seem to have forecasts and radar maps but not too much else, and I'd like to have something with a greater variety of data available. Basically the ideal would be weather.gov in app form.

    Maybe just bookmarking weather.gov is the best solution?

    I bookmarked all of the weather sites in Safari, but also downloaded iRadar. Nothing special, but I find it can be useful when I'm curious about how much longer it will continue to snow and if there are any lingering storm clouds/lake effect snow

    i use the weather.com app. Have the new OS on the iPad, and the app has a lot of functionality. The version on my OS4 iPhone is good...

    An excellent option for the Pac nw is Snow Buddy. Provides weather, telemetry, and avy forecasts in one overlay graph by area/ location.

    I use weatherbug, but it isn't much more than forecasts and radar for whatever cities you plug in. Newest version seems to crash less than earlier ones (like, it hasn't crashed at all). I like the ability to put the radar into motion. Works reasonably well without a wifi connection too.

    Best app by far that I have found is the NOAA Hi-Def Radar. The best thing about the app is that it allows you to access the latest National Weather Service area forecast discussions, which I have found to be the most accurate forecasts out there for my area (Seattle) because they discuss all of the potential scenarios and different modeling that might change.

    Radarscope is by far the best radar app. If you want forecast discussions you can use the NOAA sites.

    Absolutely. It's literally a professional weather app. I do some photography/video/storm chasing during the spring/summer severe weather season and I'll use that for quick peaks at radar/VIL/velocity signatures before I'll fire up the laptop with GRLevel3.

    Very well put together.

    Another vote for the NOAA forecast discussion. Poke around their site and you will find lots of other cool tools. For storm / pattern / model discussions go to accuweather forms and hit the current weather topic. Lots of detail and analysis of active and potential storm systems.

    Bumping this up... is there any app that gives you access to NOAA point forecasts? Search a location that the NOAA site recognizes, and then be able to click on anywhere on a satellite map surrounding that location and get a point forecast?

    What about at least searching for any location that the NOAA site recognizes and getting a point forecast for that?

    If there is, please give me the exact App name, as searching 'NOAA' turns up a ton of hits - most of which cost money and aren't exactly clear as to what it does.

    Well that was a waste. WeatherSphere's apps (at least Hi-Def Radar) does not give point forecasts. You can search just about anything, like you can on NOAA, but it gives you the forecast for the nearest city (useless).

    What's wrong with just using the map on the NWS webpage for your point forecasts? Works for me. I've bookmarked a few specific ones I use a lot.
