    What is the weather app that uses the GPS to update locations? I'm looking to buy one, and don't want to buy the wrong one.

    Any recommendations??

    Can you tell me if it does the update automatically, or does it require the user to manually request the update?

    Imagine driving, does the app update as you travel, or when you tell it to update location?

    The description is vague...

    Thanks!

    It does it automatically if you set it up that way. For example, I live in MS, I live on the coast and I drive to Jackson. When I leave the coast it has the current locations conditions. I have it set for every 5 mins or so, and every city or town I drive through up to Jackson pops up on the weather.

    It's nice because it will either use GPS or your cell location if GPS won't work.

    Unfortunately it requires a Paypal account to purchase, something I refuse to have anymore.

    Thanks RogerG, ordered and downloaded! Very nice!

    One question, does it have alert sounds; and if so are they adjustable?

    Yes, you can program Profiles for sounds when there are weather alerts.

    There is also a free app called BBWeather: http://www.tateu.net/software/downlo..._4.3.jad?q=php. But honestly, I caved and bought the BerryWeather app, too. I'm a real snob about aesthetics. Still, the other is quite functional and can be customized.
