It might help answers your question if we knew why you are asking, and what you are hoping to learn. Thanks!

Not really wanting to learn anything other than have a (hopefully free) weather application that shows local weather stations and nice radar displays.

I am also curious if there is something that anyone uses as well. I have been spoiled by Wundermap for the past few years that I have forgotten the use of dedicated applications.

Weather bug or The Weather Channel seem like pretty crappy apps to me, but maybe that's the best (free) out there.

On my phone the only app I use is radar scope. Otherwise for both phone and computer I use weatherbell, a pay site, for all my modeling needs. Similarly I use mesowest for wx conditions, spc for other stuff, etc. Generally just specific web sites.

Best free weather app for iPhone is probably Storm. For Android perhaps Wunderground's app or Intellicast. Of course RadarScope is worth the money to me at least.

On my windows phone and in my laptop, I use the built-in weather app for windows. But in my iPhone I use Weather Mate.
