Facebook - version 18.104.22.168 is available for download from BlackBerry App World. The new version has been long awaited by Facebook fans everywhere and now, you can check out the latest release available. The feedback on this release has been much better compared to other releases so, be sure to grab it if Facebook is your thing.
iHazWeather - With a tiny footprint of just 190KB, this simple app gives you just that, the weather. Current conditions are displayed on the homescreen, and launching the app provides a snapshot of the day and a 3 day forecast. A tip of the hat to the developer for displaying the temp in both Fahrenheit and Celsius, there aren't many that allow for the fact that Canadian (and other metric countries) users exist. Set your location, or allow the app to use your current GPS location, choose your refresh rate and you're set. That easy. If you're looking for an app that will give you a full forecast, or tell you how many inches of rain are currently falling on your head, you have lots of choices. If you just want a simple icon on your screen with the current conditions, check this one out. Available in the CB store for $1.99 for multiple devices, including the Torch.
