Bad link. Did you mean this: Mobile: WeatherEye Mobile - The Weather Network ?

WeatherEye and WeatherBug Direct in my opinion are the best choices, both offer home screen icons with the temp/forecast. I just prefer WeatherBug for the Severe weather Alerts.

I'm using a combination of things now:

WeatherEye for the homescreen icons that change with each update;

Weather for info on multiple cities (up to 5) and a slick interface;

Weather Underground bookmark for long term (10-day) forecasts. I've actually been using the iPhone formatted pages from wunderground - you lose some functionality in the scripting and internal links, but the radar image is larger and the icons are nicer to look at than the lightweight mobile version that I used to use.

When all else fails, I just look out the window. But how much fun is that?

I downloaded it last night and found my device dead an hour later all locked up battery was fine just locked the device up so I don't know if it was weatherbug or another 3rd party software.

Never had that type of problem with WeatherBug. You can send them a bug report from Options -> WeatherBug Direct.

For the Icon with the current forecast you need to add that icon. Options -> WeatherBug Direct, look for the weatherbug extentions. They got a few to choose from.

Ah, but my icons are changing as the weather changes. Maybe you need to enable visual alerts?

I'm partial to bbweather. You can download it OTA here - http://www.tateu.net/software/bb.php?f=BBWeather.

Some advice on getting it to work here - How do I get BB Weather to work on the 8100 / 8300 / 8800? - BlackBerryFAQ

If you don't want to load an app weatherunderground has a nice mobile site - Weather Underground (Mobile) - just enter the city/state, zip or country.

I have a really buggy 8350 and I loaded weathereye and weatherbug and both crashed. I found out my device will be replaced shortly. then I will have to try it again.

Ouch, let us know how it turns out.

There are a few other Weather applications, weather underground (as a browser bookmark), bbweather, push weather. That you can try if these 2 applications are still buggy for you with your new device.

here's a really cool app, with quick weather being only one of many options it has. it's designed beautifully, and the fact that it's voice-activated is pretty nifty too!

Tellme | Say it. Get It.

enjoy
