Not true, you will just lose your jailbreak.

Is that true with all updates? I haven't jailbroken in a while, but I thought that some of the updates caused problems and some didn't.

I don't want to turn this thread into a jailbreak thread. You can PM me and I will send you a few links on jailbreaking and the way I tethered my Itouch and Ipad. Jail break is legal. There are a lot of apps that Apple does not approve. Some of the Google Apps until recently were only available via jail break. This was because of the feud between Apple and Google (and a law suit). I do use iBluever and it has worked well for me. I do find wifi hotspots are almost everywhere (at least in the Pacific NW), so I have don't used the tether a lot.

I've seen a few comments/posts on the various weather/weather radar apps available.... most like them. But, when I search for them from the App Store, SO many of the previously-popular ones (Weather Underground, WeatherBug, AccuWeather, etc.) have really recent entries under "Reviews" talking about how recent versions are constantly crashing or just plain slow.

I realize that quite a lot of App reviews are simply people airing grievances or otherwise just complaining, but the shear number of negative comments on most of the previously-popular weather Apps is compelling.

So...

Can anybody point me to a (relatively) realtime weather/weather radar app that's reliable? I don't mind paying a few bucks for something that works... just HATE to spend a dime on an App and have it either keep crashing or have data so old as to be useless while traveling.

Have you upgraded it through the App Store recently? The last 10 reviews (most-recent is dated yesterday, May 10th, 2011) mention crashing and other problems.

Yeah, I get updates as soon as they come out. No crashing at all.

And it's free so who cares if it crashes. Try it and decide for yourself.

Good call on MyRadar Seems to work well... at least in my area.

Liking what I see so far on the free version of the Weather Channel, too. Its "map" function seems to load and zoom in/out faster than MyRadar. Hopefully, between both, I can keep an eye on brewing weather while riding on my upcoming road trip.

Thanks for the quick input, guys... I appreciate it!

Excellent thread, thanks for starting it !

For those of you who happen to visit Singapore (riding or not), check out iMerlion. It's an app directory of all apps Singapore related. Perfect to find your way around, and make the best of your visit with your iPhone. Most of these apps are free.

For the Singapore riders, Weather Lah is a must have to check the latest on rain forecast before taking off (Free)

Ride tracking/logging apps are the ones I feel we miss the most - anyone stumbled upon some new ones lately ?

IMapWeather Radio is free for a limited time for iPhone / iPad. It's normally $9.99.

Edit: already back to regular price.
