    Well we have used weather bug for years but i hate all the spy crap that comes with it. I had a buddy tell me to look into TPA weather man add on. Any of you tried it? Here is the link.

    Or do any of you have any other weather related pages that has animated radar?

    what i need is a weather program that has local animated radar and some kind of siren for bad weather like weather bug has. Dont get me wrong i love weather bug but it has nasty little add ons.

    The Weather Channel offers Desktop Weather. Similar to Weatherbug, minus the spyware. I have used it for quite a while and have no complaints.

    Ok i will try this! thanks for the idea...


    read the rules, Eric. You have trouble with a mod, talk to him (or us) via PM, don't post it publicly. Btw, you'll get more answers in OT

    I'm not sure if the Weather Channel has any free mobile apps, but they do have a $4 per month service with radar for Sprint/Nextel and Verizon customers.

    spyware sucks.


    I always thought weather bug WAS spyware.

    anyway, you can use adaware or spybot to remove spyware. Its really useful.
