Need help with BB Weather please.

I have been trying to find the best weather app for my phone. I am currently using weathereye and weather bug. I tried using BB weather but all it ever says is "Error: invalid url parameter" Does anyone know what this means or how to fix it? Also if anyone has any suggestions for a different weather app I would love to hear about it. I am on a mission for the best weather app out there. (Free of course, my bill is high enough with a blackerry and iphone!)

Re: Need help with BB Weather please.

I use BB weather as well, I think it's pretty good. I especially like the multiple locations feature as I spend alot of time outdoors. And as you mentioned...THE PRICE IS RIGHT :smileyhappy:

 

Regarding BB weather, do you have the right permissions set?

I use Weatherbug. I like the fact that it sends Severe Weather Alerts, the temp is displayed with the icon on the Apps screen, and the local Weatherbug location in my city I personally helped set up at the local elementary school.

Re: Need help with BB Weather please.

Thanks very much for the link Bifocals. But I am a quite new BB user and I don't know where the permissions are or what they are supposed to be set to.

Re: Need help with BB Weather please.

When you installed it did you allow it to set itself up?  If so it probably has the right permissions.

Look in BB weather, click options make sure DISABLE MDS PROXY is checked, as you are not on a BES.

Did you look up the city codes on http://www.aspnetresources.com/tools/locid.aspx ? I couldn't get any results when I used zipcodes.

 

If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas. Other than one: Watch the Weather Channel! :smileyhappy:

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Need help with BB Weather please.

when it comes to weather, I've tryed them all. I like weather.com because of hourly reports and details available if you need them. I have found pocket express adaquate for everyday use.
