I'm hoping someone can help me. One of the main reasons I purchased the Evo was to be able to view animated weather radar while on the road as my business necessitates that. I am able to access many different radars, but cannot use the animation functions on any of the sites. When I access a radar, I can get the most recent display, but whenever I click for animation, I'm taken to the first screen in the sequence and it never moves from there. I'm wondering if anyone knows whether I need to be downloading something to enable this function. Thanks so much.

I just did a little research and from what I have read it is my understanding that Android devices can't play the animated radar in the browser (neither can the iPhone). There are a lot of apps on the market that do, however. A quick search of the market will turn up a bunch. Here are a few that seem to be relatively popular among people with the same issue as you:

WeatherBug (http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.aws.android.elite)- only the paid version does animations

Radar Now (http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.usnaviguide.radar_now)- free

Rainy Days (http://www.appbrain.com/app/com.neenbedankt.rainydays)- also free

Hope this helps.
