The Weather Channel app updated with localization for 40 languages


I have tried most and always come back to Weatherbug. I've always thought Weather Channel app is a resource hog, even on PCs.

BeWeather is the weather app for my phone and tablets. Ever since NBC ruined The Weather Channel, I don't watch their TV channel and don't want their app on my devices.

Why would taking a photo need to be part of a weather app? I would imagine that the main use of a weather app would be to check the weather. There may be one or two other apps that can already handle photos quite well.

1) this is not a new update. seriously.

2) while TWC is a good weather service, its not the best, its app is disappointing, and its widgets SUCK.

I use WIFR Weather, the official weather app for one of my local TV stations, and one of a large number of station-branded weather apps by WSI Corporation which are all pretty much identical. It has the best maps out of any weather apps I've tried, though admittedly I haven't bothered to try anything else after finding it early last year, so for all I know AccuWeather or TWC stopped sucking like they did then.
