WhereAmI: See Your Location on Your Storm Background (9500 GSM Only)

whereami This is a slick app that I think would really take off if only it worked on more devices. It simply shows you where you are on a map and sets that as your homescreen background. The main problem is that it only works with the 9500 Storm GSM version so even 9530 CDMA Storm users are out of luck!

The app is a bit pricey at $4.95 but I think it is a real novelty. I am hoping that in the future I will be able to set my homescreen to show either the weather forecast and cycle with my location on a map using cell towers or even my stock portfolio. I think that would really be cool!


  • Configurable zoom level
  • Configurable refresh rate
  • Maps are taken from Google
  • This application does not support CDMA devices

  1. Now that’s slick…

  2. gooooooooooood thinking here! (could have been my idea haha)

  3. The idea is nice but the time I used the app I had constant freezes – not sure tho if it was another wack OS release or the app. Anyway a constant gps usage doesn’t sound very battery friwndly and the need is questionable

  4. This app works on the Verizon BlackBerry (9530) but only if you are using it GSM not CDMA, like in T-Mobile or AT&T. I use this app a few months ago when it was out for the first time. I think you are a little late to post this app since it was out like in march or something like that.

  5. Tried it on my 9500, didn’t work. After it searches and downloads a map, it says it cannot find the image on my device.

  6. There is an app that shows the weather on the background called homeweather

  7. the app can load image 🙁 damn any sugesstion?
