    The zip code is 27834 - Greenville NC
    I can confirm this problem. Somehow the server does not pull up all weather forecast zones for Greenville, NC. The zone that had the 'Tornado Warnings' was not properly matched.

    Unfortunately the alert already expired, so we will have to find another one to check what exactly is going wrong.

    At least now I know I am not crazy. I will look around for some locations that look like they are having bad weather. Thanks for everyone looking into this.

    The walls isn't a major issue for me either, it's a nice touch though. I do wish we had some perspective on it as asked earlier just for clarification.

    Just to update the latest special weather update came through like it was supposed to but thankfully no more tornados in the area so I can't check the tornado warnings.

    I'd call that a win. Keep your head down if any more show up.

    We are not doing any post-processing on the wallpaper. It will just be shown in the top-left corner of the background.

    We did not want to bloat the application with image resizing and cropping functions as we assumed most users would only use wallpapers sized to fit the screen.

    There will probably be at least a feature to resize the wallpaper to fit as right now loading a large wallpaper is a huge memory hog besides the display issues. The whole wallaper remains in memory even though only a small part may be shown.

    It's a server issue. No fixes in the software required ;-)

    The wallpaper resizing will be in a future version. We are currently packaging release candidate 2 as final.

    It's a great concept but not a major issue. The application is for weather.. not wallpapers. I can deal with resizing my own pics for the wallpaper in the app. rather than the memory drain.

    Thanks for addressing it though.

    We're all jonesing for the app already. We know our time with the app is limited now. When do we get our BerryWeather fix.

    Bellshare addicts anonymous anyone?

    I'll ask the questions on everyone's mind then.
    How much will this cost?
    Who are the 10 testers who will receive this free?

    And btw, I think I can speak for all (prob shouldn't though), this is a fantastic program and its been a blast testing. Bbm messages flying when a new release, great communication-was fun.
