Default BBWeather?

Please Login to Remove!

Is this the best ap for weather? I have WeatherEye right now, but I live in a small town and it doesn't read it. It gives me the weather for Houston.... I'm about an hour away. I have tried adding my location, but I think it only sees bigger cities????

I have tried and tried to download bbweather, and for the life of me I can't find out how to do that... I do have a weather section on my gps section, that is local, but I wanted something that is its own ap. Does that make sense?

Thanks for any help!

BBWeather is the best free weather application for BlackBerry.

Download it here:

Download BBLight/BBWeather/BBToday/BBReply binaries (GPL source code included!)

If you want another very good one, although not free, try BerryWeather.

No, it's not part of BBToday. It's a separate application. Simply use your BB's browser and type in the link provided in the post.

Once installed, you open the application and add your profiles. You can use zip codes for location ID's or you can type in the city name in the location ID field, then hit the menu key and select "Lookup Location ID" and it will fill in the information for you.

You can setup the rest of the options as desired for how you want your weather to be displayed.

Good luck.

The alpha version is nice but it's an alpha. We're still taking baby steps here.
