WeatherBug = Bad

I installed weatherbug last night and its not a good thing to have. It drained my battery in about 12 hours and made my storm sluggish....If your having problems and you have weatherbug installed.... this could be some of your problems. Usually my battery last several days of normal use.

I thought this might of been an issue as well with my storm, so i removed it. But phone still worked the same, so I put it back on. No real difference that I can see.

Re: WeatherBug = Bad

Hi,

I have had it installed for a while now. No problems so far.

I set it up to update every four hours. If you set it up to

every 15 minutes, you might see some battery loss.

Re: WeatherBug = Bad

Mine has been installed for about a week, updates every half hour, with no apparent battery draw.
