    Default Best weather app that works with this phone?

    Title says it all. I currently have Weather Trax installed, but really don't like it. Any better suggestions? I tried downloading a couple others, but they didn't seem to work on my 9850. Thanks.

    Which others did you try?

    I know for a fact that berryweather, QuickWeather and XWeather all work on my 9850.

    I got WeatherBug on my 9850, eventhough it's for the Storm.

    I opened Weather Underground" in my browser. Then I added it to my home screen. It gives a nice comprehensive weather forecast for the present and for the 7 day period. it also has radar. I found it less buggy than weatherbug or some other weather apps.

    On my old Storm2, I used both WeatherBug and The Weather Channel apps. They were both free, and both worked fine. When I upgraded to my 9850, I decided to splurge a few bucks and get BerryWeather for my new device. It was a great decision. This is a great app that I highly recommend. It's definitely worth the price. (Especially since I got it on a 50% off sale! )

    I've been using QuickWeather, but after reading all of the posts about Berry Weather, I may switch to try it out. Althought I wish they would bring back Accuweather. Loved it on my Tour!

    I moved Weatherbug Elite over from my Storm2 but it kept telling my my key code was no good (because of new PIN, I assume). How did you do it?

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner but I got a Playbook recently and have been in that forum learning all the tip and tricks

    Sure I can help... All I did was send an email to support@weatherbug.com giving them my old pin and new pin. I had already been communicating with them asking about the OS7 device and they said they didn't have a date... When I loaded the one from the Storm I wrote them the following email "It's ok... I understand...


    Will you please go ahead and update my Activation Code for my new PIN so when you do have it ready I will have the activation code?


    Also, There are several users that have the free version working on their 9850 and installed it by using Desktop Manager... I am going to try this with the Elite version (I understand it's not fully compatible) and would like the new activation code to see if it works...If not I can uninstall the Elite version and use the Free Version until you get the app ready

    My information is as follows:

    New PIN: 3302XXXX

    Old PIN: 3130XXXX
    Old Activation Code: XXXXXXXX
    App World ID: myemail@comcast.net
    WB Elite -

    Thanks a million,
    Robert G. Calhoun"

    I had the New Activation Code back very quickly. On top of that, I emailed them and let them know it was working... I figure if they knew there weren't any MAJOR issues and just formatting maybe they would move forward on getting it fixed

    Hope all this helps.

    After trying a good few weather apps, I opted for Berryweather.

    Downloaded the app, ran it for a few days, wrote a (good) review and got a free upgrade to Berryweather Pro........!

    BeWeather is the only weather app that I will run on my BlackBerry phones. I downloaded the free version, and within one hour, I bought the full version. I love everything about the app, from custom icons to how it works with BeBuzz.

    I checked several Weather apps and the overwhelming majority of positives went to BeWeather. Of course it is also the most expensive and takes a larger file size, but that should not be a problem for me as I have 64 Gb. However, for starters I got the Weather Map with Google (cost $0.99). It's OK but I did not see any radar map feature. Being Google, it naturally has some nice features like terrain, and roads. Stay tuned for more feedback as I have had it for only 2 days.

    Might be worth pointing out that BeWeather gets its updates from Wunderground, which is now owned by The Weather Channel. I can't speak for others, but since then I've started using Accuweather (free in AppWorld) as it's now far more accurate.
