    Default Accuweather vs The Weather Channel, which one do you use?

    Which one of these do you use and why do you prefer it over the other? (Both the free versions)

    Thanks,

    I have both but Accuweather has found it to my first (page) screen. I like the UI a little better, but TWC zooms out with the radar better IMO.

    question; do any of these apps drain the battery?

    I use TWC. I flip thru the weather forecasts for 3 different cities depending on what I am doing that day, and TWC just seems easy for me...I don't need it to do anything else...

    I go back and forth. I prefer the auto location feature of Accu though.

    Weatherbug has been good for me. (Which is ironic because I spend have my days removing it from clients' computers.)

    I like The Weather Channel Max. Its a very good app, it could use a better design and landscape.
