    Weather Flow and Weather Master are definitely the best.

    Meh, just tried WeatherMaster. Looks like I'll stick with Accuweather. WeatherMaster's radar imagery is too figidity/clunky. I do like the live tile slightly better though. Only thing left to test is efficiency of severe weather alerts.

    AccuWeather. Why?

    - Live tile shows current conditions AND forecast. The other weather apps I've tried only show current conditions.
    - Quick access to ten day forecast, satellite image and radar (in motion, with ability to easily zoom in and out of locations)
    - Hourly forecast
    - Quick, smooth severe weather alerts
    I also like AccuWeather for these reasons. Most importantly, in my own review of several services, their Live tile operated as advertised/designed the most consistently, 24/7.

    Edit: Also, the ads on this free app are the least annoying, or not annoying at all, because they are mostly or always for accuweather.com itself. At least in my area, and as I use the service, I just get a slice at the top that always reads the service name.

    Finally, the different locations that you can set are very easy to select.

    Yeah, I mean WeatherMaster allows you to add multiple cities as well, but has some odd quirks. WeatherMaster's live tile is a bit strange the more I try it out. It shows you the current conditions and the forecasted high and low, but it doesn't give you the full forecast for the current day, only the high/low. The only full forecast it shows you is for tomorrow and the next day. I would think the forecast (not just the high and low) for the current day should be shown as well, as a priority in fact.

    It's a good app, and I'd like to buy the full version, but I can't bring myself too given the shortcomings I listed in this post and my previous one.

    Does TWC app do toast alerts? I haven't seen any. I've been using WeatherMaster lately though. I really wanted toast alerts for severe weather.
    sure does
