Default WeatherWatcher - Freeware Weather Application

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I've just release version 0.1 of a new Blackberry application: Weather Watcher. It allows you to check weather conditions, and a 5 day forecast, for locations all over the world.

As I mentioned, this is only version 0.1. Any suggestions for future improvements are more than welcome!

Thanks, Ben

It sounds like lots of you are having problems installing this OTA. I'll try and fix this over the weekend and update you asap.

Are your APN details set correctly? You can check them in Options -> Advanced Options -> TCP.

Sorry that everyone seems to be having problems! I've updated the app to include better error reporting. Don and akosnitzky, if you try it out again can you let me know what error message you get?

Many thanks, Ben

Noticed that the screen shot shows UK
Does this also support North American weather?

love the display! I live in canada and it works fine for me so North American cities shouldn't be a problem.

What I'd like to see is saved profiles or searches, so that you don't always have to type in the city name every single time

The app supports cities all over the world.

@Supersonix: I'm glad it works for you. Some people have reported problems, although I'm not sure what devices there are problems on. Saved searched is something I'm going to add in the next release.
