    Are there any weather apps that actually work on the Veer? I couldn't get any in preware to work. Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

    I don't know, but just in case you don't find any you like, here is the best weather webpage I've found so far (and you can add a Launcher shortcut to it using Page > Add to Launcher menu to make it look like an app):

    Here is a weather app that works for the veer with the exception that the radar doesn't work. Otherwise it's a reliable weather app I use everyday.

    Holy Moses!

    the segment of your comment which is now in bold above, is an awesome piece of information!
    i've never recognized this, although it's right in the browser menu. THANK YOU SO MUCH for mentioning it here!!

    P.S. if anyone wants more weather websites to add to their launcher in this fashion, (or just as some handy bookmarks) try this:

    1. on your PC*, go to WEATHER.COM and navigate to their "Classic Maps" section. Then choose your preferred maps, open them, and then right click on the map image so it opens as a jpeg in its own window. THIS GENERATES AN HTTP ADDRESS FOR THE JPEG.

    2. save the addresses and email them to your webOS device, (or just type them in manually) so you can create either as new bookmark, or as a new Launcher Icon. (this is so cool!!) you will want to rename it from "image_title" to something like "SE Radar 1800Mi"

    - the jpeg updates at same address, it is not a static image. so anytime you refresh it, you'll receive the current image.
    - retrieving the jpg addresses may be easier from PC because weather.com redirects mobile browsers and navigating to Classic Maps page may be impossible.
    - example of an address to save: http://i.imwx.com/web/radar/us_se_9r..._plus_usen.jpg This is the SE US 1800mi radar image.
    - the US Current Surface is one I highly recommend: http://i.imwx.com/images/maps/current/curwx_600x405.jpg

    hey wait a minute. Q: how do you delete a homemade app icon? haha!
    EDIT FOR A: hold the 2nd shift ("orange key") then tap icon to delete. explained here: http://www.webosnation.com/delete-ap...-launcher-icon

    that's TWO cool webOS tricks i learned today!!

    No I've not made any mods to my launcher to increase icon density. Instead i add panes.

    My quickbar only has Phone, SMS, LED Torch, and Web, then the Launcher Arrow.

    I've always really enjoyed WeatherBug on my Veer. I can't say if it's still available since the catalog shutdown, but if it is, everything on it works that I've tried. I have used a lot of weather apps and sites in my time with this phone as I really enjoy weather data. WeatherBug is my favorite.
