The BlackBerry PlayBook comes pre-loaded with a nice weather app, but there are other even better ones out there.  One of my favourites is Animated Weather HD.  It’s got more features than pretty much every other weather app you’ve seen—and more.  Why settle for a base toyota, when you can have a fully loaded S-Class of an app, right?  From the same developer as StereoTube, it would be an understatement to say it looks good.

The developer, Andrei Avram, guarantees your satisfaction with the app or your money back, just like Sterotube.  Missing a feature you want (doubtful, but its possible), he’ll do his best to get it to you.  It is admirable to see such dedication to customers and the app.  With frequent updates bringing in new requested features, it’s hard to go wrong.  Even check out some of the latest reviews below.

You can add as many cities as you can find on the map, check the radar data, and even have the weather read to you by voice!

For $2.99, you can pick up this app in the PlayBook’s App World, which giving you free updates for life.
