    Pay or not Pay for a Weather App.

    Hey so i am trying to decide between the following weather apps-

    BB weather-
    Likes- Free, easy to use, lots of options besides radar
    Dislikes- Looks Crappy (icon wise on home screen)

    Berry Weather-
    Likes- Looks killer both icon wise and in program. Radar
    huge disk like- $9.95 for a weather program is just crazy.

    Weather Bug-
    Likes- looks good, free, (probably has more options but been months since i played with the program.
    dislikes- known battery and memory killer (probably has more options but been months since i played with the program.

    Weather Eye
    Likes- Looks good, free,
    dislikes- ads, no menus support (cant hit blackberry button to use quick launch to take screen shots. no radar

    So by bbos friends, what program do i go with? Can i get your pro's and con's please? Thanks!

    (If i go with the pay app. i am so waiting till it goes on sale. come 50% off sale, and i rather not pay but for the options i will.)

    With other bell apps like berrybuzz.

    Berry Weather is the best weather app I have tried. For $10 you sure get a lot. The best UI, great radar maps and such.

    BBweather for a free app is pretty good as well. Not as good a UI and options are much less limited.

    Weatherbug: Used to like it but too much memory leak and the program can be instable.

    I ponyed up the $10 for berry weather and couldn't be happier with a weather app. Great UI, maps etc. Before that I used weather eye and it was only good for the icon, nothing much past that.

    I used BBweather for a long time before buying Berryweather and I like it. Berryweather is my hands down favorite and I miss it since getting the tour. I am using BBweather again on the tour and it is ok.

    When it comes to the weather apps, all I want to know is "What is the weather"? I used to run Weatherbug, but I found it would kill my memory (prior to .151). However, now I run BB Weather because all I want to know is how hot it is and what the week is going to look like. I'm not a meterologist, so I do not care much for apps with a radar. Oh, BB Weather is also free, best price.

    I just broke down and bought berryweather and i like it the best. It is more user friendly and looks the best. I was hoping to find it on sale for the past couple weeks because I thought it was too much also. Its worth it in my opinion. Now that I have bought it, you could wait a day or two and it will probably go on sale like everything else I have bought.

    Thanks cveklund, since you bought it its sure to go on sale now. lol! I will have to look around for the always famous sale on the program!

    (not that i am sold. the beta verison is still working on my phone. till it quits then i will probally go back to weather eye since i like it's interface the best besides berry weather. )

    Berry weather is the best, I say go for it. Wait till this place, or Crackberry, or some other site runs a discount in their store. I got it for 7 and it was WELL worth it.

    I don't think there is any question on this one, Berry Weather is by far the best weather app in my opinion.

    Weatherbug has served me well for a long time and the price is hard to beat ($0). I tried Berry Weather and it's awesome but my free app tells me everything I need to know. Current conditions, forecast, radar, etc.
