Fans of BerryWeather will be pleased to know that version 2.5 is now available for download. Winners of the CrackBerry App Award for best weather utility, BerryWeather 2.5 has a whole slew of changes and bug fixes in place. Almost too many to even list here so, we'll slim it down a bit for you all and concentrate on all bigger changes:
- Added push support to instantly notify about weather alerts without draining the battery
- Added support for custom icons. We are looking forward to iconsets created by the community!
- Added support for sharing weather and advisory via Twitter
- Added support for BlackBerry LBS (location based services) on OS 5.0 and higher devices for cell location lookup. This greatly improve cell location lookup accuracy
