    I've used all the most popular weather forecast apps. Although each has good qualities, there was always some quirk that made it more difficult to use than was necessary. WeatherBug gets the highest marks for ease of use, best layout of information, easy-on-the-eyes colors. Love the color scheme, please don't change it. Right now, I give WeatherBug 2nd Best in Class award, because Weather Underground allows the user to select an individual weather station closest to their residence. If WeatherBug added that feature, they'd be, hands down, the best all around.

    Manages to provide a lot of information clearly in a small space. Would like a marine weather and forecast option.
