    Anyone able to side load Weather Channel app - I tried the app on BBW but it does nothing when you open it. Maybe not possible to use nowadays because android runtime on app has been updated beyond what is compatible with BlackBerry 10?

    Yeah, any Weather Channel apk after 2018 requires a minimum of android 5 so they won't work. You can easily find and try an older version (from ApkMirror for eg.) but they may not work either. Personally, I prefer the native weather app still but ymmv.

    I second the recommendation for the app. And you could use a browser home screen shortcut to WeatherCan as an alternative. It's a very lightweight site which plays well with the BB10 browser.

    Exactly what I do - but the OP may not live in Canada. I also like to place a web shortcut to Weather Canada's radar also. Works pretty well.

    the older versions work fine, the weather channel is just very bloated.

    bvhanna, first of all, are you located in Canada? If not, WeatherCan won't be of much use, but do confirm and then we can help.

    Great, thanks for confirming! Try going here: https://weather.gc.ca/canada_e.html. Pick your province/city and that'll give you the forecast view. From your BB10 browser, tap the triple-dot icon and then tap Add to Home Screen. Give the shortcut a name. Then you can launch that page w/ that specific view from your home screen.

    You can't use mh1983's link above. From your native browser type in "weather.gc.ca", then tap "Access city" , type in your city in the popup box and tap "Go". THEN from the 3 dot bottom right select "Add to home screen". You can also add the radar using same process or just access it from the same homescreen icon. I like to have a link to both but you can decide.
