Default BBWeather Released - BlackBerry Weather Software

Please Login to Remove!

For those people who needs to lookup weather quickly on BlackBerry:
Quote:
V0.74 Beta
* Initial revision BBWeather is an application that displays current and forecast weather conditions for the 7XXX series of Blackberry's (V4.0 of OS). Features include:
- Multiple profiles. Profiles are properties/options for a particular weather location. You can change profiles via shortcut key/menuitem which allows you to view weather conditions in multiple locations instantly
- Press SPACE or choose menuitem to change between Current Conditions screen and Forecast screen
- Forecast can range from 2-10 days per profile
- Units type per profile
- Uses the device font type and size
- Temperature fields are displayed in user definable colors
- Weather data is fully cached but is updated on user defined intervals and can also by updated instantly via menuitem Notes:
- There is no ability to lookup/search weather.com location IDs. Here's a site that provides this service or just use weather.com: http://www.aspnetresources.com/tools/locid.aspx
- This program uses TCP to communicate with weather.com. Please make sure your TCP settings are correct before using this software
Download BBWeather

Please Note: There are other excellent programs such as PocketDay and BBToday. They also do weather as a subset of their functionality such as displaying other status information (i.e. missed calls)

Does this download the data when you go to view it, or does it poll at some rate?

Congratulations,

BBWeather is a great small tool, two and a half things missing:
- proxy authentication support in case you have to run via MDS Server
- I would like, to keep data traffic low, to be able to increase the repeat interval further high (not only 120 Minutes for Actual Conditions and 240 for the forecast)
- Lookup of the location ID inside the tool or a small other 'tool'

I simply love this program. But, every other time I attempt to update it, I receive the message "Error: Malformed Address. Returning null connection"

Does anyone else get this error? How do I stop it?

I am on Cingular, BWC, version 4.0, with a 7290.

Thanks!

I too have the same problem with this weather applet within BBToday or "could not open tunnel - max timeout". I don't have any problems with the weather applet within PocketDay so it must be a problem with this free applet. I get similar problems with the stock tracker within BBToday also. If I ask it to update a couple of times, it will work fine for a while, but automatic updating weather and stocks is hit and miss. Can't really complain though - the price is right!
I too have a 7290 with operating system 4. I use BES with Rogers.

This happens to me all the time but when it does, I manually click 'refresh now' and it usually never fails.....usually.
