    The only weather info I see is on my far left home screen. A little banner appears at the top as you go to that screen.

    Great concept, seems to take a little more of the battery away using the live wallpaper but not to bad. I cant get the weather info to come up unless I scroll all the way to the left then a banner drops down and retracts right away with the wrong city weather info. Any help with this.

    this is a truck driver’s dream.

    imagine having a device that shows where the storms are in tornado alley in real time?

    imagine having a weather map to consult when driving in possible icy weather?

    it’s also a motorcycle rider’s dream too.

    google’s weather overlay is tons better than weather channel or weather bug.

    one more reason i dumped my cliqXT.
