    BeWeather HD Now Available For PlayBook



    The popular weather app BeWeather from BellShare has just showed up in App World today for the BlackBerry PlayBook! BeWeather HD brings a ton of customization options to modify its looks, and default weather parameters. Set custom background images or stick with the eye-candy high definition animations portraying current weather conditions. BeWeather HD can be downloaded for only $4.99 in BB App World.

    FEATURES:
    - 100% Ad-Free
    - Weather data provided by Weather Underground, includes 7 day and hourly forecasts
    - Visually stunning display of weather information using high definition animations (experimental)
    - More accurate conditions by switching to a nearby weather stations for any location
    - Weather advisory notifications (US only)
    - Built-in animated radar (US only) and IR/Vis satellite maps
    - Replace/extend the default radar/satellite maps with your preferred weather service's radar maps!
    - Add custom web cams and other media links (weather radio, video, HTML etc)
    - Sunrise/Sunset times and moon phase
    - Completely customize BeWeather using fonts and colors

    Note: Due to a bug in Tablet OS 2.0.0.7971 you might experience stutter and/or degraded quality using weather animations in BeWeather. This should be fixed in an upcoming Tablet OS update. We have therefore marked this feature as 'experimental' for now.

    It sure seems like it took long enough to get t his app out to PB, and yet it has a bug...
    maybe they rushed too fast then?

    This is from the Bellshare developer made on another site:

    If you take a look at the app you will notice that it is not a simple repackaging of our Android version. Our original Android version never worked on Playbook Android Runtime.

    This version has been heavily customized to make the user experience feel as native as possible to the Playbook.

    Some of the features this app provides using the Android Runtime wouldn't have been possible to implement in a native/AIR app.

    If RIM decides to drop the non-native task switching for Android apps this app couldn't be distinguished from a native/AIR Playbook app.

    hope this answers some questions

    It's not getting good reviews right now for whatever reason. I'm sure it has potential being from Bellshare though. For me the AccuWeather app on PB does fine and for a lot of folks I'm sure. I do use the paid version of BEWEATHER on my handheld tho.

    The statement from Bellshare sure sounds like they have NO intention on developing a NATIVE BeWeather for the PlayBook. Hummm

    This app is basically not that cool without a updated weather icon/info from homescreen. As goes for any weather app.

    Thanks for the info. The icon notification is very important so I don't always have to go into the actual app. Maybe Bellshare will add this feature.
