    Weather apps for WM6.1

    Which (in your opinion) is the best weather app for 6.1 which can have the weather updated while plugged in to the PC instead of data plan? I'm too cheap with one son in college and myself starting soon.

    i know fizz updates from the pc sync
    dont know about the rest i just get my weather from windows live search

    pssst.
    you can also look on ebay and craigslist for cheap wifi sd cards
    that way you dont have to have data but you can only get online where theres a signal

    I use the MSN Direct plugin on my homescreen, and Accuweather.com if I'm on the internet.

    I like NRG CHome Mini Weather 1.0.

    Does PocketWeather have a WM 6.1 homescreen / sliding panel plugin?

    I second the recommendation for Mini weather, but this applies only if you are using the sliding panel homescreens for WM 6.1

    Is there a setting for mini weather to only update if connected to a pc. I refuse to shell out 30 for data since I'm saving for college for my son and me.

    I have tried to find an update interval setting for mini weather, but I have not found one. I think it is built with hourly update settings. sorry.

    Advanced Options -> Allow Connection "No"

    Then Enable the connection when you want to use it.

    How do you get the weather into the first panel?
    I have it in its own panel.

    The taskbar is SmartTookKit, and the new icons is rinku Iconbar. After installing rinku Iconbar, it will by default only show the new icons in the installed theme with it. However, if you replace the line:

    with:

    in the *.home.xml file of the theme that you wish to change, you will have the new icons on whatever theme you're using.
