    Pearlcast Released: Updates your Pearl's color based on Forecast

    Advertisement



    Hey guys,
    My latest product Pearlcast has just emerged from the depths of beta testing. Here is the description of Pearlcast from my website:

    If you pulled your Blackberry Pearl out of your pocket right now, could you, within one second, be able to tell the weather forecast for your zip-code?

    Have you seen those globes at fancy gadget stores that change color as the weather changes? Now your Blackberry will check the forecast automatically and change the color of the Pearl to let you know exactly what your weather will be.

    Want more detailed information? Just open Pearlcast and your local weather forecast will be displayed instantly!

    Pearlcast is fully customizable and everything from the minutes between updates, to which color means what, can be set in a snap. It can also set your Pearl's color according to a variety of criteria including the one day forecast, the current conditions or the current temperature.


    Pearlcast works with all models of Blackberry but is recommended for use with the 81xx series because these are the only Blackberry's with colored led's behind the trackball.
    Right now its priced at $4.99.
    You can learn more and try out the demo at my site.
    I hope you guys like it!

    I am getting a second bb this week. A vzw 8130 pearl. Can you change colors on that device or is that on the 8100 only?

    I thought it was the 8100 only, not the 81xx series.

    I thought that I had heard that also but wanted to make sure. Thanks DCookSta. I wonder why they did away with it?

    I have this app and its truly the best. I love the fact that my pearl trackball tells me the weather without having to actually having to log onto a website. Great job Convienence Software!

    You shoulda had it set to change the pearl color by temperature. It woulda changed several times within the 24 hour period.

    There are instructions on the help menu within the program stating what to do if your from outside the US. Maybe you can download the trial and give it a go around and see if it works for you. Good luck!

    It would be cool if this app could change wallpapers as well... you could assign various wallpapers just like the colors of the pearl are assigned. It would be nice for us that have a 8130 without the color trackball.

    Glad to see this released. The beta period took no time at all it seems. BTW what happened to the hex code idea I suggested. I thought that was a good idea since it was available in other color pearl applications.

    I use this program and its pretty nice. Great alternative to the basic color pearl programs. Works as advertised..

    sounds very interesting.
    What about the backlight washing out colors? (i.e. red looks pink sort of thing)
    Does this affect this application as well?
    I haven't tried the demo yet
