    Thank you for the extra help.

    We spend a fortune on tree service here in Alabackwards. After Katrina, they made a killing, and I know the tornadoes in the northern part of the state have kept y'all in business. No offense, but I hope to not need you again.

    Yeah, bummer. Oh well, I tried.

    The reason I like this app is that it is very localized. It uses locational services and only goes off if you are actually in a warning box. So you don't have to hear it go off every time there is a NWS warning for areas in other parts of your state. I live in Oklahoma and believe me, we have plenty of warnings as well. It gets old when the weather radio wakes you up in the middle of the night for something that is nowhere near your area. Could just save your life someday though.

    BTW, I see you are from Alabama. I own a tree service and spent last Summer in the Birmingham area. I have family there and they asked me to come remove the storm damaged trees at their homes as there was a big waiting list with local services after last year's tornadoes. I spent 6 months there removing hazardous, storm damaged trees. A lot of trees on houses there last year.

    looks cool thanks- I have been using skymotion lately- it gives you a 2 hour window and tells you when its going rain, snow etc- amazingly accurate- great for finding the window to take the dogs out without getting soaked...

    Okay thanks.

    I use TWC text alerts for warnings etc... But recently some aps I have been using are delayed a bit. I want something real time pushed to my device.

    My current favorites are (in no particular order)

    AccuWeather
    HD 4Cast
    The Weather Channel Max
    Solar
    Weather 2x
    WeatherHD 2

    As others have indicated, none are perfect, but all have interesting implementations of various weather features...

    I noticed your on Verizon. In iOS 6 under notifications there is now emergency alerts. The other day there was some possible flooding and my phone sounded an alarm that would wake anyone. Plus it went off the same time the alert did on the tv.

    I have three folders of weather apps as well as three apps on the home screen!

    I think I have settled on Fahrenheit as my favorite forecasting app. It has a badge for the current temp. Very simple to add other cities and page through them. Easy to scroll down for the two week forecast. Expands for more info if you wish.

    I also like Umbrella to automatically tell me if I need to take an umbrella or not at 5AM. It very, very rarely does not tell me to, when I need to, and infrequently tells me to take one when I do not. I live in FL- it rains a lot.

    For radar, as an overview, and being able to zoom in and out to see the whole region, I like RadarUS. Those are the three apps on my home screen.

    If I want the latest, most up-to-date radar info, then Radar Pro is the one I turn to. If I want to know if I am in danger from severe weather- it's Radar Pro.

    Lightning Finder is pretty cool- but you have to pay a yearly subscription. Still- I miss it enough when my subscription expires that I do so.

    Sat Weather is pretty.

    Hurricane is a must-have here.

    I sort of like US Radar for traveling.
