Default Weather Apps for iDevices

I have several weather apps for my iPad that I like such as WeatherHD, Weather+, The Weather Channel app, and my new favorite: IntellicastHD.
They all have nice features but one feature I just ran across in IntellicastHD is the 'wind' direction option (in the Map Layers dialog). It shows the speed and direction of the wind and is zoom-able so you can view it locally to see which direction storms are going to move, storm fronts, and also you can see the whole nation's wind activities. It is cool seeing how the wind affects storms across the nations and frontal boundaries movements.
Which weather apps do you like?

I used to use the Weather Channel on my android phone. But they changed it to make it "purtier". Hate it now. So I'm looking for another app.

I use Radarnow and free NOAA weather. I had 10 until recently and pared them down to these 2. I may try IntellicastHD based on your recommendation.

Like George, I use Radarnow for a quick look at the radar on my Android device.
For more weather info I have been using Weather Bug Elite. Costs $1.99 for Android or I-devices.
I like that I can set it to notify me of severe weather at my location no matter where that may be.

I still use weather channel on my droid with radar now as a quick look, great while traveling as it will follow you in drive mode.

RadarNow has added current conditions (select the cloud icon in top right) and forecast (a button available after selecting current conditions) recently too. Just in case you haven't noticed.
