BlackBerry App World is featuring BeWeather aka BerryWeather by Bellshare. If you already own the app or the Free version, chances are you know what we’re talking about. CrackBerry has given them a bevvy of awards. The app has sat in the number 1 spot on my last 7 BlackBerry’s for reason.
BeWeather is compatible with every BlackBerry from 8100 to 9981. Runs on OS 4.2.1 to 7.1. They offer a FREE Trial version as well as the full premium edition. The Free version is more a trial and whets your appetite for the full deal.

This is a weather app like no other. I like to try everything, including apps that are trying to bring something different to the table as often as developers make them. I’ve even gone as far as to move BerryWeather from slot number 1 to another location. It doesn’t last. But I give it a try once and a while. My first 5 apps – BerryWeather, BBM, Twitter, BlackBerry News, Messages.. Keeps the weather in the quickest spot to get to. I live in an area that generally gets all 4 seasons without a lot of predictability. From the WeatherUndergroud 7 day/hourly forecasts to the instant weather advisories via Push technology (United States only) it’s a win.
One of my very favorite features they added a while back would have to be the customizable themes. Sites like ThemesInMotion, themes: http://www.themesinmotion.com/bw/page1.shtml to the CrackBerry Forums here are loaded with Free themes/icons you can easily download and make your BlackBerry as personalized as you are. Many are also downloadable directly in the application.
Keep your eyes on BeWeather too because it will go on sale whenever Bellshare pushes a major update out and during other times of the year. The current price is $9.99 for new users. There’s no subscription fee, sometimes they will charge a couple dollars for big updates as well depending on when you made your purchase. I dig it, ’nuff said. Check out the Free version if your not sold on the list of features!
