One might assume that one weather app is the same as the next. And for those of you with that mindset, I present WeatherBug Elite.
Available for any handset running 1.5 or higher, this app presents users with current conditions, five-day forecasts, radars, and more in a friendly interface. The background notifications are one of my favorite features as I get instant alerts to storms, tornadoes (I live in Ohio), flooding, or any other threats.
I've added additional cities to monitor so that I can know what to wear and what to expect when I touch down at the airport. Reading descriptions and forecast is nice, but I also like perusing some of the cameras set up around various towns to see how things look in the real world. This way I can see just how sunny the beach is today.
