Looking for recommendations as I don't like the stock one. Yes i know you can just access the mobile metservice site from safari, just wondering what else is out there?

Why is there no met service iphone app ? but one for ipad ?

I have Celcius too, don't use it enough to have installed on new iPad tho.
MetService is a terrible embarrassing abortion of an iOS app. I don't recommend.
I do recommend it if you are an iOS developer and want to know what NOT to do.

WeatherNZ is my main app on iPhone. It's not a free app but at $2.49 it's hardly breaking the bank.

On iPad I have Living Earth and Aelios. Both are retina optimised and look pretty stunning. You could leave Living Earth spinning as a permanent display...

The 3news app has weather in it. It's not overly detailed, but I find it good enough.
