Rony let me know about a slick BlackBerry compatible weather app that he found on GetJar.com. The app is quite feature full and works quite well. The feature list speaks for itself. The developer has specifically address BlackBerry problems in the past so support should be pretty good.
You can find it also on the developers site at this link. OTA install is available at this link: http://weather.midlets.eu/dwn/. Just make sure to select the right Jar file for the size of your screen. The 320 version works like a charm on my Bold. The screenshots below are from my Bold:
Thanks for the free app Gergely Gati!
From the description:
The Weather midlet is a Java application for mobile devices to check the weather conditions in different locations. Download the new measurement and forecast data any time using the Refresh menu item. There are different views in the Weather midlet and you can change the views with the Up/Down navigation buttons. In the bottom-left corner you’ll find the elapsed time from the last data source refresh. It’s measured not from the refresh button press on the phone but the refresh of the real computed/measured data on the server. The Autorefresh option makes it possible to refresh the meteorological data automatically in regular intervals. Currently there are three main views:
You can check the current weather conditions in your locations at the same screen with this view. Basically this is a list with the selected cities and the current conditions of the locations.
This is a four days forecast for one location at a time. You can change the locations with the Left/Right navigation buttons. You can check the top and the low temperatures and the forecasted precipitation amount for the four consecutive days for each locations.
You can see the current detailed weather conditions for each locations. Change between locations with the Left/Right navigation buttons. The following data is available on this screen (from top to down):
- RealFeel™ temperature
- Wind direction and speed
- Pressure value and tendency
- Relative Humidity
- Precipitation amount
- Sunset/Sunrise time
You can use this midlet in conjunction with the Sunclock midlet. If you already use the Sunclock, the Weather will import your city settings from it. Otherwise you will get the default city set. You can modify the cities with the Cities menu item or you can search locations on the internet using the Search menu. It is possible to change the units between metric and american system. There are an update function where you can check any software updates using the Update menu item. The Help and About functions will display the usual information screens, getting help, checking version and so on.
Hotkeys: #-exit 1-search 2-refresh 3-update 4-cities 5-autorefresh 6-units 7-variants 8-font 9-about 0-fullscreen
If you find layout problems you may check the other available variants using the ‘Variant’ function. This function doesn’t change the layout immediately it’s just sets your required variant if you will make an ‘Update’ in the future. The system will allow the update even if there aren’t newer version out there if you changed the preferred variant here.
