I'm not trying to troll here.. I'm just a little disappointed by RIM's offering (their weather push is updated twice a day and sucks) and the price of some of these alternatives.

BBWeather is free, as is WeatherEye. Why not try one of those?

They look very primitive.

With the technology behind the hardware.. There should be no reason why both cannot coexist on a single package. Others have managed to do so.

I love WeatherEye, but their closest city to me in the midwest is 45 miles away. They are very limited on US cities so far.

I bought BerryWeather and love it. Everything is spot on.

After using BBWeather for years (still a great free app), I tried and purchased BerryWeather, well worth the money IMO..

I agree that it is a bit overpriced, but I still am glad I purchased it.

I'm noticing something else however. I am running 1.0.34, and its memory leaking and killing my battery like crazy.

Is anyone else noticing this??

I purchased BerryWeather after a two hour trial. I was looking for just this sort of application. I have NOT noticed any memory leak or battery drain while it's been installed on my Bold.

I'm trying to narrow it down now. I dont use many programs that stay running in the background. It could be the Beta of BeeJive.

one thing I didnt like about this app is that the developer never responds to sent emails thru application. I wonder how good support will be/updates.

The developer was very good in supporting this during the beta testing, but they were active on Pinstack not here. Get the latest version (1.0.34) as there were some late bug fixes after the initial release.
