    I currently have WeatherBug installed on my Bold. Any better FREE weather apps than WeatherBug?

    I also heard that the Bold comes with a weather app. If it does, my Bold didn't have one when I bought it.

    It's all subjective. Might want to look at Tronyx's site as I believe he has the major weather apps listed there (most are free).

    www.hookedontronyx.com

    (darn, tronyx beat me to it.)

    There are also multiple threads arguing weatherye vs. weatherbug vs. BBWeather (the latter being a new incarnation of an older program - that's the beauty of open source software).

    on your website it says that weatherbug has a fee. I didn't know about this. Will I be charged? I got weatherbug from the app world store.

    That's the free trial. You need to pay for either a 3 month or 1 year subscription.

    I use weathereye. I considered purchasing BBweather, but it is not worth the $10 IMO. If it were $5, I would have purchased it without hesitation.

    It didn't say free trial on app world. It says:
    The application is Advertising supported and free for consumers.

    Also, weathereye is for Canada. Can't find my town which is in the US.

    Try berryweather. I had weatherbug until I tried the 3 day trial. I actually bought it after that. Awesome!




    Just BS

    There's a Bold specific version of weatherbug floating around somewhere. It's pre-beta from what I remember, but so far it appears to be "free."

    Edit: Found weatherbug direct for Bold: http://blackberry.weatherbug.com/bold/bold.jad

    (my direct links to posts never work, but I found that link while searching for Bold Weatherbug)

    Also (in the same thread that I can't seem to give a direct link to), a newer weather app - render fast NWSClient

    Haven't tried the latter.

    I actually just added the NWSClient app to the weather apps section of the site. Thanks Josh!

    Only thing I like about weather bug is that when you scroll over it. It gives you the high,low, and current temp. Then changes the icon according to weather. Its nifty.

    I've been using BBWeather (free) and I like it. I'm used to seeing TWC forecasts, so that helps. I especially like the hourly forecasts to see how the weather is supposed to change throughout the day....

    The app icon is active, too, if you decide you want to have current conditions on your home page.

    I'm on Rogers, and the phone came with a build in weather icon. But it's not really an app. The icon displays a bit of information in the name, but clicking on it just opens the web browser.

    If you're in Canada/on Rogers, I would highly recommend WeatherEye. 2 Small adds, but works brilliant.

    Very happy.
    I uset it a lot. Very reliable.
    Takes a few hours. Do it at night and you will have the icon on your screen the day after.

    You've asked this question in both of your threads.....I don't know the answer, but before you start a third thread I tried Google. My first hit said:

    "Get free constantly updated weather forecasts pushed to your BlackBerry smartphone. View radar, 10-day forecasts, severe weather alerts, and hour-by-hour forecasts with just one click."

    I wouldn't have posted it in your thread if it wasn't free.

    BTW: Download BBLight/BBWeather/BBToday/BBReply binaries (GPL source code included!) - BlackBerryForums.com : Your Number One BlackBerry Community

    and

    A Google search for 'BBWeather free' (no quotes) yielded this as the fourth hit:
