Anyone using the full version? I see that it's on sale for $4.99 and looks like a nice app, but before buying wanted to see what people think. I'm looking for a replacement for BBWeather (can't get it to work on 9550).

Thanks

I'm using BeWeather/BerryWeather. It is very good. Definitely worth it.

+1.

They have fixed all of my issues/problems/concerns with v2.x. They were using a crappy service for the weather data in v1.x, and my locations would not update regularly. Since rewriting the app and changing to a more reliable weather data provider, BeWeather rocks.

Thanks for the feedback - sounds like it will be more than an adequate replacement for BBWeather, although I'll miss it...

BeWeather / BerryWeather (same program) 2.1 is very good. Can't go wrong with it.

Very nice app and I agree with fonejunkie's post about the difference between 1.x and 2.x. It's still something of a resource hog on memory over the course of about 3 days, but other than that, it works nicely. I'd buy it again if it were at $5.

BerryWeather provides multi-location support, weather alerts, and a radar you can customize, definitely worth the 5 bucks in my opinion.

Thanks again for the feedback everyone. I missed the sale price but made the purchase last night and, so far, am very happy with, and impressed by, the app. The only thing I would change would be to make clicking a day go to a screen with details for the day (somewhat like WeatherBug). But otherwise, very nice.
