Sometimes I’m sure it seems like we write about certain applications over and over again. While I’m sure on some BlackBerry blogs there’s some favoritism paid to vendors, sometimes its just the fact that certain Developers just maintain a level of quality that makes their application stand out in the crowd. In the BlackBerry world there have always been precious few really kick ass applications that we tend to sing their praises.
BerryWeather is one of those applications, while its not the only weather application that has the homescreen wallpaper function anymore, it was the first application to do it and in my opinion still does it the best. On top of the Home Screen wallpaper function BerryWeather is jam packed with features and functions for the weather whore in every BlackBerry owner. Definitely a top ten application for me personally.
*** If you are upgrading from a previous 1.x version of BerryWeather make sure you uninstall the previous version before installing BerryWeather 2.x ***
