Re: Weather Application

I'm using the newest WeatherBug app and it's fantastic.  

 

When you click on it, you get the current weather (based on your GPS location), you can click on one icon and get a long term forcast, another and get temp/radar/cloud cover, another for warnings, etc.

 

It's about the best weather app I've ever seen on ANY mobile device (and I'm a weather nerd).

 

Give it a shot, you can download it to your Storm at:  http://blackberry.weatherbug.com/storm/storm.jad

Re: Weather Application

Wow...I just downloaded it and this is now my favorite APP!!  Wait...it is my only REAL app, but nonetheless, it is still super-cool and I love the looks of it. I will keep this app on when I sleep so I know how the weather is outside when I am getting ready for my runs. (You never know what you're going to get in Chicago...)

 

Super-kudos to all!!

Re: Weather Application

How does it know your GPS loction unless you leave the GPS active all the time?  Or do you just have to let it access the GPS data one time?

Re: Weather Application

I tried to downlowd weatherbug for my Storm but it is a JAD file and my computer won't read it.  I tried it directly from my device and that didn't work either.  Any suggestions?
