    Has anybody been having issues with wunderground.com crashing Safari on their iPad?

    Can't help with Safari, works on my Safari on iPad (3.2.2), but there's an app for that. WunderMap (app store) from the same people as weather underground and it looks better than the web version any way, and works just as well.

    clear cache and hold the Lock and Home buttons down to do a forced reboot. Works fine on 4.2.1.

    Yes, I have that same problem on Safari AND on Skyfire. I'm not sure what the problem is.

    Wunderground crashes for me under Safari..... It never used to.. The main page opens, but it dies when I try to view the conditions in a town or city... They use quite a bit of flash on Wunderground, so I guess I'll have add it to the growing list of my favorite web sites that I can't visit with the iPad. :(

    I knew the iPad didn't do flash when I got it, but I had no idea how many sites that I was visiting regularly used flash..

    Possibly the best web site for weather. Gives all sorts of information that other sites don't. In particular, I like the dew point forecast. In the summertime, that's the best indicator of how comfortable you're going to be.

    Welcome to Weather Underground : Weather Underground

    However, it crashes for me on both safari and atomic. I've been using weatherbug instead.

    I just tried wundermap. It doesn't give all the good information the wunderground.com does. Try the weatherbug app. It gives hourly forecasts.

    I use wundermap.. It's essentially the same as downloading the wundermap web page from wunderground, but faster. I have a personal weather station with a web cam, and I can view the conditions and images from wundermap when I'm away from home.

    iDevice specific Wunderground link

    Wunderground has an iDevice specific page that does not crash Safari. I use a shortcut on my Home Screen for fast access to my weather. Much faster than waiting for one of those apps to load up.

    I don't have enough posts to post a link so look for the link in the upper right hand corner of Wunderground to get it.

    Good information, carlsbl. Thanks for the tip.

    How much better is it than "weather hd"? That app looks great! Show dew point, wind, visibility, forecast etc

    Wunderground absolutely crashes on iPad!

    Clearing cache, rebooting... Still same results. For my area SW FL it's the most accurate. I really rely on it. I love my iPad, BUT these flash issues are making me rethink things in a year or so with the new tablets. Jobs let us make the choice if we want it to run our machine we purchased. Thank you very much.

    If it is the same as weatherunderground.com, then I have no problem. Perhaps slightly different formatting?
