I wen to the link and .185 avaiable. I had .172 last night but totally was not good. Did anyone else notice the heat that came from the phone when is was trying to locate using GPS?
Anyway, waiting to here more about .185 before I download again.

yeah... when this is in final form it'll be polished. Seems they are working on it pretty hard considering we've received many updates in the previous weeks.
Hopefully they'll code an option to get out of the "Locating..." screen. I'm indoors with no GPS signal and it won't let me slide over to my city (added manually). Guess I'll have to wait till I'm outside again for it to unfreeze?
Just found that you can click on My Location and it brings you to a screen with Saved Locations - problem solved.
Note that your city won't appear in the Menu dialog for "Locations" when it's searching for GPS. You have to click "My Location" in the middle of the screen to get there...

Hey it looks like they had an update last night. I installed and this thing is automagically updating. I am becoming a fan of the Weatherbug.

Use the link provided on the first page from your BB. It should prompt you to download the app and you'll be good to go.

my battery drained 4 bars in 6 hours today. i didnt watch any vids or take any vids or pics. the only change i made was updating to .185 last night. now that i think about it, when i woke up this morning the lightning bolt was still present. never took a full charge i guess. uninstalled weatherbug (buggy to say the least) and now charging, i hope the battery life is returned back to normal. i dont want to do a wipe.

I noticed battary drain with .172. It seems that the GPS trying to locate your location puts a strain on the battary, especially if you are not in a place that gets the GPS signals. The software keeps trying to locate itself. Also, have you notice any extra heat coming from the handset?
