It depends on the OS. Android or iOS?

For iOS, I use Weather for my iPod.

For Android, I hear positive comments for AccuWeather.

IMO, there is no "best".

I am an avid cyclist. I check the weather every day before I go out. I check every local TV station, Accuweather, the Air Force base which is less than 1 mile from my house and they all always say something different!!!!!

The Base is actually the most accurate - but I try to ride 30 miles - that's about 15 miles out and guess what? The weather will be different there. It could be raining there but still sunny at my house.

So you just need to try them all and pick the one that is consistently more accurate for where you live, and for where you are going.

I actually like to know about the impending storms (rain and snow) so I use one that shows radar around my area.

I've found that Weather & Widget - Weawow is the best on my phones.  It has a selection of weather info providers and has very customizable widgets.  You could check to see how it works on your tablet.  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.weawow&hl=en_US

You're welcome.  Weawow is a relatively new app, but it has been much better than any other weather app I've ever used before.
