The Weather Channel
Does anyone know how this application works? As far as I can tell, the application is useless because the data provided appears inconsistent and incorrect.
For example, it is not unusual to see the current temperature being outside the forecasted range (e.g. current temp 58, High 72 and low 61)...how is that even possible? Also, comparing the "Current" to the "Hourly" often doesn't make sense, as it would require very significant movement in temperatures in a short time. And if you look at the data provided by "The Weather Channel" website, it will confuse you more.
I know weather isn't an exact science, and the data is updated sporadically, but is this the best they can do? Am I the only one that is having trouble with this weather application?

I personally prefer weatherbug as it lets you pick specific weather stations and one happens to be right across the street from my house on an elementary school. It's radar map also seems a bit more responsive and loads faster.

I have the free weather channel app, and honestly it works great for me. Granted, I dont use it all the time...but it is accurate when i do. it gives me great forecasts, and i love the maps and the video forecasts. between that and the weather app that is stock on the phone, i am golden

MyWeather is great and whenever I've had a question, their customer service is awesome.
The forecasting and graphs are amazing, but The radar that comes with MyWeather is soooo worth the price alone. The RADAR is AMAZING!

I do like the radar in MyWeather and their customer service emailed me back one time within 20 minutes when I couldn't get something to work. The MyWeather forecasts look the same to me as the others, sometimes their temperature ranges are different.
I'd say go either WeatherBug or MyWeather over The Weather Channel.

I fully agree with "hotrod"..Because I have been using weather channel application for a long time and it always gave me the right information..And presently the "Weather Channel" has also added various surfaces views and the ability to navigate radar and cloud maps..So I guess it is much efficient than before..
