  1. I dunno – $5 is steep. The weater app that comes with the Playbook seems fine.

  2. The app that comes with the PB does seem fine… and I hear this $5 is merely a port of the Android version, which I find to be pretty lame considering this company’s support is pretty horrid.

  3. Just a thought, but here goes…

    Recently, RIM has been offering BeWeather FREE (“Compliments of BlackBerry”) as part of “A Premium App Offer for BlackBerry 7 OS customers”. Could I transfer my paid license for my 9930 to my PlayBook?

  4. If it’s a port I don’t want it. Otherwise I’d pay the $5. I hope BeWeather gets that message.

    • Has anyone actually confirmed whether this uses the Android player, or is it a native app? (Unfortunately, my PlayBook is at home today.)

      If it is an Android player app, that is truly worthless as the app is designed to run in the background all of the time. Unfortunately, RIM’s implementation only allows for a single app to run within the Android player at a time.

  5. why do I want to pay $5 for a weather app? rim’s weather is fine. i just need to know the temperature and the condition and 5 days forecast. what else do you really need?

  6. Yes it sure seems like, my PlayBook app world has not been playing nice so I can’t download.

  7. The AccuWeather application that comes on the PB is a fairly decent application all things considered. I do have the paid version of BeWeather on my 9700 for when I’m in the field but while using my PB there are more readily available sources for weather when using wifi or even when bridged, which I rarely ever do.

  8. $5. FAILED!!!!

    The UI is crap and is nothing like the native PB weather app. It looks like a crappy flash app. the only good part is the background that put on otherwise it is a useless app and its 35meg in size. Like WTF!!

  9. Got it this morning.

    It is indeed an android port. My heart dropped as I watched the sexy, but slow reflective bb symbol load.

    Then I added Vancouver BC and got to playing. Tons of customization in it, and if you select active background its pretty sweet looking. There is an option to autoupdate, though I haven’t tested it out yet.

    Ideally it would be native, but this is nice.

  10. Does Berry Weather display icons on the homescreen of the PlayBook like on a BlackBerry. If so, it would be worth getting.
