The Weather Channel updates its iPad app, new design is heavy on animation and buggy for original iPad owners

The Weather Channel has updated its iPad app, creating a new look for its popular feee application, but also a few new problems for those who update their apps.
PhotobucketThe newly update The Weather Channel® for iPad sports an all new design that adds in a rather silly spinning globe, but also more animation and design elements. Whether you think the app looks gorgeous or a bit artificial will probably depend on your own tastes.

Some users, however, are already complaining about the new crashing or loading slowly on their first generation iPads, a common problem of recently updated media apps.

Another issue is the amount of RAM Apple continues to use in its iOS devices – far too little to handle some of the new apps being released for the platform.
