    The Weather Channel Offering Free Ad Supported App


    The Weather Channel already has a premium weather application, if you wanted to cough up $3.99 to get it. Today TWC has announced a new free ad supported app for BlackBerry.

    It features:

    • Interactive radar maps
    • Current conditions
    • Hourly conditions
    • 36-hour and 10-day forecasts
    • Severe weather alerts


    One of the neat things is the ability to share severe weather alerts, current conditions and forecasts with friends and contacts via email or text message directly from the application. Very useful for alerting your friends of upcoming weather conditions. The ads are not too big or placed oddly on the screen. If you want don't want ads, you can still get the premium version from BlackBerry App World.

    It doesn't have a homescreen icon, not that I can ascertain. But I must say after downloading it, this is a nice app.

    I really like this. Sure it's not a lazy man type of weather app where it displays the weather on the home screen, but it sure gives a lot of detail and very simple to use/read. I like it a lot. Thanks Sun
