    Good Weather App????

    Advertisement



    I deleted Yahoo! 2 Go off of my BB because Google is my hompage and I customized the page to tell me the info I need... (movies, sports scores, weather, and news.) Heck I even get a new joke every day on the main page. I figured I didn't need Y! GO.

    But the weather reports on Google just don't give me the weather info I need. Y! GO had detailed forecasts, what the day would be like (sunny, cloudy, rainy, etc). Google just gives me a little icon to tell me how the day is, and a high's and lows for temperature.

    My question is this... are there any better weather apps for the BB? I've heard of BB Weather but isn't that just push messaging to the phone. Is there anything that gives similiar information to what Y! GO gives? What do you use... if you use one?

    i'm actually curious to know this as well. Right now, I just text message google with my zipcode and i get the forecast for the next 3-5 days. which works for me, for the most part ... but if there's a better app, i'll try it out.

    i just found one that was posted in one of the threads above:

    m.wund.com

    thats not a local app that runs on your phone. its a website. You'll need to install this to have quicker access to the bookmarks:

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~sweet. But I don't try anything unless people back it up with a testimonial. So how about this, download it and try it for a day or two... Unless we can get someone who,s used it before to comment on it?

    I usually just go to accuweather.com in the browser, I think that that works really well.

    I use the BB weather app, its a program that you can run. It shows you graphical current weather stats, and you can get a forcast, it isn't messages pushed to your phone.

    I just use the local weather channel in Viigo. It's quick, no unnecessary info, and it's constantly updated.

    So this is an actual app you can check when you want? I don't know, but I though I read somewhere that BB Weather is only push messages. If it's not, any chance you can post some screen shots?
