Weather Channel Max

Aimed at weather geeks, the Weather Channel App on the iPad gives users their own portable weather radar. Users zoom in or out as far as they want on the map and then can watch one of many consoles -- radar, clouds, rain, etc., -- that show, in real-time, oncoming weather and temperature trends.

The app also features quick links to Weather Channel programming -- shows like "Epic Conditions" and "Weather Ventures" -- and aggregates Tweets from national meterologists like NBC's Al Roker.
