HomeWeather: Weather Forecast as Your BlackBerry Background (Storm Only)

homeweather While this is not exactly what I was hoping for it is a step in the right direction. I have always wanted to have a Zen like theme on my Bold with the current weather conditions along with the next 5 days. Until now I have been making due with BBWeather which is free but is a bit finicky when it comes to updating the homescreen icon.

Ari from Volcari Software let me know that HomeWeather performs a bit of what I am looking for but is sadly only available for the Storm. HomeWeather will change the background of your Storm to display the current weather represented by an image. It has some serious functionality restrictions like being unable to show temperature values and only working in the US but it is getting closer.

You can configure the forecast period to include the current weather or today/tomorrow. It is pretty pricey at $9.99 ($8.99 on sale until August 31st) but it has a definite coolness factor.

Now if only RIM would let developers show a website as your BlackBerry background… That would really open up a world of possibilities.

  3. if you’re looking to have weather in your calendar, here’s what I do with Google Calendar (which I sync with Google Sync)
    search for you local weather
    on the right hand side of the page, just below the top banner-ad is an ical link.
    right-click and copy the link location
    now goto Google Calendar, click on Settings, then Calendars, then Import Calendar
    then click Add by URL, paste in your url, and click Add!
