Free Real Time Weather App. Nooly

I don't know how good it is, but those of you with smart phones (most everyone but me) may want to give it a try and report back how well it works for you. According to Popular Science magazine, Nooly is supposed to give real-time weather reports within .4 miles of your current location using real-time data from NOAA and NASA.
And It is FREE.
Here is one place to get it, but there may be a better one on the internet:

I downloaded it and honestly it needs a lot of work, very difficult to navigate around in and really not that much information.

I still find the the WU Weather Underground app rocks. Lots of info and very little lag. And it is FREE.

Agreed. Love love the WU app. It's not perfect, but it's the best. I still use the regular WU moble website for wind history though. Here is some WU app pointers:

-Change your home station for Golden from what ever it gives you to the station you want. I use Avada Modlers. I used to use Lookout Point, but it's been jacked up for months.

-Set the map page to display wind direction and speed instead of temperature.

-Turn on usful layers on the map like radar, fronts, and severe alerts.

-In the menu, choose between WU's proprietary forcast model they call "Best Forecast" or NWS. When Best Forecast came out about a year ago, it was a bit flakey but it's been good lately.
