    I find it hard to believe that WeatherBug did not make your ratings.
    Part of your criteria was number of data gathering sites…WB has over 5000 local(online) stations (with calibrated instruments) around the world. These include their proprietary Total Lightning Network sites.I am not aware of the existence of a better lightning detection system on the planet. Please check out the “Spark” feature on the app.
    In recent years WBs’ severe weather warnings have preceded other systems(NOAA and NWS for example) by as much as 15-18 minutes and defining a smaller area under warning for many of the major catastrophic events.
    I’m not sure if there is an absolute “BEST” weather app but I am sure that WeatherBug should certainly make any “Top 5” list.

    Weather Underground’s Storm app in google play isn’t there now. I clicked the link and got their original app. I need a weather app that has the option to make a notification SOUND when severe weather happens, not a text or ordinary push notification (that I usually blow off as some apps can’t have push shut off).

    Weather Underground DOES NOT do a SOUND for severe weather, as I am in Florida, this is a big bad NO for me. I quit using Weatherbug cause it’s too flashy with graphics and didn’t work well with my old Galaxy S2 smartphone.

    Can someone suggest to me a weather app that does the severe weather warnings with SOUND notification (like weatherbug had, I could choose a sound on my device to make it distinct!). I don’t mind push notifications.
