Everyone's favorite weather app BeWeather has gotten a small but highly important update this week. This latest version brings the app up to v2.6.22 and with it a fix for one of the most complained about issues on BlackBerry smartphones - memory leak.

Update includes:

  • Fixed potential memory leak
  • Improved current location detection

While this isn't a major update for most, it has the possibility of being one for anyone who thinks they may have been experiencing a potential memory leak while having BeWeather on their device.

I've been a BeWeather user for so long yet it still remains one of my faves and the most recommended by me to friends. This update is only for the BeWeather app running on your BlackBerry smartphones, not the HD PlayBook version.

If you don't see the update in App World yet, simply keep refreshing your list and it'll show up soon enough.

Well, let's see if this update stops my memory leak.....

+1, my memory leak was AWFUL.

Still leaking over here. Just as bad as before on OS7.1. Seems to be related to how many times I actually go into the app. But I never seem to get more than 48 hours before I lose over 60MB :(

well hopefully the current location detection means that it will work with just cell location now because i've been having to use gps and then cell cuz the cell wont pick up anymore.

I bought BeWeather on Mobihand and don't get any updates? How can I update without having to purchase again?

Robert22

I am having the same problem. Purchased it directly from Bellshare. The update should be available on Bellshares homepage for download, but they have still only .20 version there.

Robert22

You cannot, there is still the old .20 version there.

smartbuddy

Looks like they updated on their site... now downloading .22

Robert22

They updated only the name of the link, but not the file which you download. I tried it some minutes ago.

If you still see the download information for .20 after clicking the link, make sure you select 'Refresh' from the BlackBerry menu.

Robert22

Thanks, that works :)

When are they going to fix the bug with the temperature reading only showing the last or last two digits in the notification area when the temperature is in the 100s?

hytran

It's not their bug to fix. That's the way BBOS has always worked - no more than two digits in the notification area.

Robert22

I purchased BeWeather directly from Bellshare and they dont have the .22 version for download oh theit homapage. It is only in the AppWorld available. They should fix it asap!

smartbuddy

you can get the latest version now from m.bellshare.com

Robert22

No, you cannot. The name is of the link is new, but the file remains the same.

I bought Berryweather from Mobihand. The Bellshare site doesn't have the upgrade yet. Any ideas how I can get the update?

I downloaded it for free as part of the BBOS7 promotion, and after a BBOS update its telling me I need to buy the program...and my emails to Bellshare have been ignored...poor customer service.

Robert22

I get no answers from their help desk as well.

Love this app - I use it every day. Will download it later today, hope for some good upgrades.

Robert22

There is still the old .20 version there. Anoying.

smartbuddy

Its updated now, pls revisit their site.

Robert22

Only the name of the link is updated, not the file which you download. It is still the .20 version.

Maybe they can add a check for new version option to their app at some point, it is just daft that people would miss one if they didn't visit a site like this.

pptarr

Still cannot locate via cell location. Terrible that this feature does not work for so many users yet the developer does nothing to address. Heck at this point just take the feature out. Why lie to me?

BillW69

I think it's a bit of a sales job to call it "Everyone's favorite weather app."

pastorbrad

Hmm..dialed up www.bellshare.com/berryweather on my 9850, found the .22 version, downloaded and upgraded without a hitch. Seems to work fine so far but don't see any changes either.

I'd be a lot happier if they'd release a PB native version instead of an android port....I **hate** the way android port apps run on the PB....we'll see if this new version actually works right on my 9550 too, I've had to disable weather notifications completely to keep the app from freezing...

BeWeather used to be consistently about 10 miles off when finding my location. After the update its only a few miles off...

ibcnul8ter

what a joke. crackberry app world says the latest is 2.6.12
I went to up www.bellshare.com/berryweather on my 9810 and got it to download
