    Default Weather app?

    Can someone recommend a good weather app that doesn't take up lots of space and gives a detailed weather forecast? Thanks!

    Have you checked out BeWeather Pro? It's what I've got and I love it. What details do you need?

    I had that but it takes up lots of space plus it stopped working, I wanted an app that can give a detailed forecast with time like you would in a webpage, if there is one of course.

    I think the stock weather app works perfectly.

    I like the Accuweather app (in bbworld), not the stock one. Push alerts and it does have hourly forecast

    BeWeather is a good app. But if you ever need customer service, choose something else. It's nonexistent with Bellshare. I ended up having to buy their product twice after numerous attempts to get assistance with my 9900 and still got zero response. I no longer purchase they're apps.

    Beweather is junk. It has no details and no support. Just good graphics. I've found the Accuweather app the best. Not the stock one. Accuweather gives details like how much it's expected to snow....not just a cute pic of snowflakes. And it has a nice look as well.

    AccuWeather is a great app. It's just it's forecasts are often wrong. The BBC weather Android app is more reliable.

    I've used BE Weather, Ambient Weather & the built in BlackBerry Weather. I still find the built in one best & it suits my needs.

    I also agree that BeWeather is not much more than fancy graphics. The temperatures, especially the "Feels like" values with BeWeather are way off.

    I got BeWeather for free, but have reverted to using the built-in Accuweather app.

    Beweather pro and the weather channel are the two weather apps I use on my z10 and the both work excellent.

    I have BeWeather Pro and until I updated to 10.2 (just last night!), I much preferred the generic BB10 Weather app, and used it all the time. However the icons and font on BB's app have changed for the worse. The font is thinner and smaller, and has no drop shadow, so when it's against that weird graduated beige sky background, it's much harder to see at a quick glance. The icons look like they came out of Betty Boop cartoons, and no longer look at all like pictures I would easily recognise. (I noticed the timestamp at the top edge of the home page is also smaller and white against beige with no contrast, very hard to see at a quick glance.)

    BeWeather, on the other hand, goes too far in the other direction - needless video animation behind the data, which eats battery life if you tend to keep a weather app open all the time. If BB would bring back the font and icons from version 10.1's Weather app, I'd be thrilled. (It bothers me enough that I'm considering finding out if I can sideload just the bar file from the old version!)
