    New App: Weatherbug Elite at BB App world

    Was checking around the new App World and found Weatherbug Elite. It was $5, but when I owned the iPhone it was my favorite weather app so I went ahead and purchased it. No ads, which is nice.
    There are pushed weather alerts that will arrive in either your mail box or calendar, and this is user selectable. One neat thing I really like is that it adds a temperature icon up by your clock. Now I can throw another app in the top row if I want to and still always know what the temp is outside.
    Here's a couple shots of it on the Tour so you can see the little temp icon on different screens. So far, no memory leak, although it's only been an hour or so that I've had it running.

    Thanks for the mini-review. I have been using the free Weatherbug app. Do you know what the main differences are? I know mine doesn't show the temp by the battery icon.


    BTW...what twitter app is that icon for on you home screen?

    Some differences...
    No ads, which is really nice.
    Push notifications for weather alerts. I really like that.
    Lightning alerts.
    More layers for the radar maps.
    Graphs for forecasts.

    The Twitter app is TweetGenius. Here's the website: TweetGenius, your twitter life made easier
    Right now they are updating the app, so it is not downloadable for the time being.

    Me, too. I've been hoping they would make the Elite version for the BlackBerry. I really like it.
