I couldn't give a fair comparison because weather eye does not work for me maybe someone can give you more input. You can try going here and see if comparing the two gives you an answer.

Without the "follow me" feature, they're pretty much the same with the exception of being able to add multiple locations in WeatherBug.
I love this app, have been using for a while. Good review MC!

Thanks to everyone for your comments and feedback.
Thanks for your comments and encouragement. After updating to 4.5 for vzw, I did a fresh reload of WB direct. In fact, this was just a few weeks ago. The version number was the .9.6.6 version of WB. As I said, at that time, there seemed to be issues.

There were several Tropical storms and hurricaines in the Atlantic in Late October yet the storm icon would only update if I forced it to from the controls.
These were the two biggest issues I found with it.
Yes, they were clean installs.
Yes, it was the most update version as the version of WB Direct that I can find hasn't changed since last installed hasn't changed. If it has, please point me to it. The .9.6.6 version has been out for a while now and I ran it on 4.3 and 4.5.
For some reason, the program isn't working on my berry, yet it worked fairly well with 4.3. Fact is, the accuweather email alerts for severe weather work better. I wish the WB direct worked, I used the program for several months and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread.
Now that you mention it, I do recall the Storm tracker icon hanging for me also around that time (I had forgotten about this, possibly a temporary web glitch?). I don't recall if it started working before I uninstalled that icon or not, but since we were near the end of the season I removed the storm tracker. The rest of the app has worked fine and the hurricane tracker worked fine before that.
For what it's worth I run 4.5 on my Sprint 8330.
I'm sorry to hear you had so many issues with it.
I really like this app. It works great on my 8330 I've had it for quite a while and have had no problems, even after my OS upgrade to 22.214.171.124 I don't have the follow me option... stinkin Verizon!!
I have to agree with everyone, your review was excellent.
I've had this app for i don't know how long, and it's working fine, except the 'follow me' feature which i would like to have, but i'm not complaining.
I like the icon it put on my homescreen, and automatically designated it as the prime icon, which is perfectly ok with me.
I've had no problems with it. In fact, it just told me about a wind advisory, which i think is another excellent feature, especially for a free program.
The only downside to the desktop version is, if you opt for the 'free' version, you have to either watch numerous ads come up, or you can attempt to get it for free by going to their page of items you can click on to get it.
Define irony: A bunch of idiots dancing on a plane to a song that was sung by a band that got killed on a plane. - By a man who is in a movie about those very idiots dancing on the plane he was on.
Thanks I love this app and the alerts are the best. I have had the wind one all day myself...

Nice app. It seems to work quite well. I have a few options for Stations to get info from because I am in Houston. This will be real useful when I have to travel.
Don't know if you caught it but you can save locations to favorites so if you travel to the same place often this is a good option to have.
