Another key difference is that BBWeather is free -- and there is no subscription required.
There are a number of weather apps available for Windows Mobile -- some of them rather sophisticated and configurable -- and they do NOT require any kind of monthly subscription. The fact that the weather apps for Blackberry (other than BBWeather or simple RSS feeds or web pages) require a monthly subscription is simply due to lack of competition. Considering how many free sources of weather info exist on the web, a BB applet that scrapes any one of the free websites (technique used by the Win Mobile apps) should NOT require a paid subscription.
Right now, the ones you have to pay for are simply taking advantage of the lack of maturity of the market for weather apps on the BB. For now, BB Weather does a great job, and is free. I plan to live with this one until a few more non-subscription apps come along, at which point the market should open up completely and paid weather subscriptions will be a thing of the past.
