    Advisory Notifications issue for BerryWeather

    So I recently D/Led berryweather and thought I'd give it a try. Aside from the obvious issue with the home screen icon not updating (a known 5.0 bug), I've noticed that the advisory notifications never seem to go away!!

    I have gone through every setting there is and "unchecked" all of the advisory options..I've literally changed about 7 different categories in the settings so that I should not be getting ANY advisory notifications, but they still come up!!

    I can "read all" advisory warnings and they go away, but within minutes the notification pops back up! Anybody know if this is another bug or if there is a fix? I was liking the app and considering the full version when my trial ends, but if this is another bug, that sure isn't going to happen.

    There is no way this company should be charging $10 for an app that doesn't work. Ridiculous!:aargh4:

    at least you get weather advisories.

    I am in Canada, and i have yet to receive an advisory. all the free weather apps supply advisories. yet this one does not.

    In addition, when the weather updates, which i have set to 15 minutes, it's still usually 2 or 3 hours behind all the other apps...

    very frustrating for a "premium" app.

    the only saving grace is that I did not pay for this app. I won it on a BBOS giveaway. I would be SUPREMELY pissed if I would have spent 10 bucks on this app

    Odd. I will notify Bellshare of this thread so we can get your questions or concerns figured out.

    I haven't had the problems with the icon update on the Tour, but have noticed the advisory updates. I would head over to Bellshare and post in the support forum, maybe they can give some guidance on the issue.
    Did you run the trial period on v 2.0, if so were those problems present ?

    THANKS!

    I really love the app, but i still use free apps, because they are more accurate.

    Yep 2.0 is what I used and had these problems...to those in Canada, I can certainly understand the frustration of NOT getting advisories, but honestly, at this point, I wish I didn't get any.

    Imagine getting a calendar reminder every 20 minutes for the same thing every day...

    Haven't had an issue like that, if all else fails..delete it, reboot the phone (batt pull) and reinstall. Couldn't handle a constant alert...

    yup...imagine getting stuck at the airport for 3.5 hours because you based your travel plans on berryweather. then missing your connecting flight and then being a day late for an appointment...

    Fair enough that I should have done more research, but when you are travelling as much as I do, you have to be able to compress the info and make decisions based on what you have...

    I just firmly believe that this app has some SERIOUS issues which need to be addressed before they can even CONSIDER charging a fee for it.

    in my defense...

    when i am on the road, I typically hit 3 or 4 cities in 48 hours...so updates would be nice...and I certainly rely on them....
