    BBWeather app, weatherbug alternative

    For those interested in a small memory gain try bbweather if you dont like weatherbug.
    Personally i have had both and like weatherbug much better, but yes it does use a little more of the app memory and if you change the preference setting to 4 hours and do not set your location it helps.

    Here is bbweather OTA

    Updated version available

    Hey,

    BBWeather was one of the first BlackBerry Apps I installed years ago. The link you have above is the relic of that application.

    That version is a bit temperamental when it comes to newer BlackBerries with a Track Ball. There's a way to get it to work without locking up your device, but even better, someone from BlackBerryForums has updated the application!

    It now has a live Home Screen Icon, and can also pull down the Hourly forecast (at least the Alpha version can).

    The BB Friendly download page is here.

    The current release version - 0.83 - OTA here.

    The current relase version - 0.83 - Desktop Install here.

    The Source Code is here.

    The Alpha Version - 0.84 - OTA only here.

    BBWeather thread at BlackBerryForums here.

    Also listed on my Mini Version Tracker list!

    .
