There are a few weather apps available for those that want to add weather to their homescreen. Depending on your preferences, you can use BerryWeather,Weatherbug,or maybe WeatherEye, some of which have tons of different customization options to tweak every little thing. Personally, I'm not a fan of bloated weather apps, simply looking to have the current temp and conditions displayed. I finally have a simple solution with iHazWeather. With a tiny footprint of just 190KB, this simple app gives you just that, the weather. Current conditions are displayed on the homescreen, and launching the app provides a snapshot of the day and a 3 day forecast. A tip of the hat to the developer for displaying the temp in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, there aren't many that allow for the fact that Canadian (and other metric countries) users exist. Set your location, or allow the app to use your current GPS location, choose your refresh rate and you're set. That easy. If you're looking for an app that will give you a full forecast, or tell you how many inches of rain are currently falling on your head, you have lots of choices. If you just want a simple icon on your screen with the current conditions, check this one out. Available in the CB store for $1.99 for multiple devices, including the Torch.
