I picked a beautiful day to road-test Earth's WeatherBug Elite app. It was a late-summer day on which the National Weather Service had just issued a Red Flag fire weather warning for my brush-fire-prone, tinder-dry neighborhood. Android weather app WeatherBug provides a set of current conditions, forecasts and maps. Extreme weather alerts and social network sharing functions are built-in too. The paid $1.99 version from Google Play is ad-free. Being a weather app skeptic, I was keen to see if WeatherBug would pick up on the obscure severe weather alert and tell me about it.

I am a big weather person myself. But spending money on stupid apps that crash frequently, update irregularly and mostly don't do anything special other then providing a shortcut is wasting money.
I can set by browser to link to a number of weather sites with similar information and its more up to date! Plus I can get more options. I just don't know why people think apps are so great? Is it any harder to open a browser to view information then a App?
