    I downloaded it in my 8 p o'clock class and its really clean. I like it better than BBweather. No more scrolling left and right.

    Nice app.

    Hi. Sounds good but on my 8800 when I try to run, when it conencts to get the weather it errors with Uncaught exception: String index out of range: -24
    Is this due to the fact I'm running 4.2.1.6.8 revision code on my blackberry?
    Thanks.

    Thanks.

    My friend also experienced that issue once. Not sure what is happening there. Maybe an incomplete response from Yahoo?. I will look into it.

    Is it happening repeatedly or was it just once?

    Thanks,

    Great App! Just curious, does it show a 5 day outlook or something? Or am I missing it. If not, maybe an enhancement suggestion.
    Thanks for the free app! Works quickly!

    Unfortunately the Yahoo! Weather feed only provides the data you see.

    I maybe to find another free weather feed with more data and use that.

    Thanks,

    Everytime -- if I go straight into options, it doesn;t but then when I come out of options and it goes off to get the weather, it just exits with that screen.... I can restart it and after a coupel seconds, that screen again. tried the default location, also UKXX0102 where I live (Northampton) same thing.

    Any other suggestions welcome.

    Cheers Jason.

    When I get a chance I will add some debugging/logging screens to the application and send you a link to see if we can get to the bottom of that exception.

    I will let you know.

    Thanks,

    HI Jason
    My BES admin doesn't allow OTA download, so I have to use the desktop version. When I tried to download it, I get a message "Digital Signature Invalid".

    BTW, are you at VA Tech? Go Hokies.....
