ihazweather

 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.

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.

Just for laughs I put my Tour in my girlfriends mouth. Now we can't get it back out.I need another phone, she slobbered on the old one and it quit working. We still haven't retrieved
it from her pie hole anyway. You should have seen her mother when I took my gf home with one corner of the tour hanging out her mouth. BTW I think I need a new Girl friend also.

Hooray from Germany! Great stuff, just now I realised, I almost never entered your contests.. why? I have absolutely NO idea. Keep it up!

man i definitely need hypoxia... make me win :D... it would be great with the amount of blackberries my friends have

Music is my business, so having the top of the top music player for my phone would be the best :D, including the fact that I love to stream everything and I own an xbox 360 which I would love to stream. Please give me a copy crackberry please make my day (fingers crossed).

You must've read my mind. Im a new BB owner and sometimes want to cry when my phone seems to be running slow at times. I would love to use the s--- out of this app you offer.
Enjoyin the site,
mousie

Great post as every been trying to get the new morsel app and now found thanks to you guys :) Hypoxia looks like a great app but little expensive and large footprint.

So Hypoxia costs about ten bucks or you can wait until BBOS6 comes out and there's your streaming audio over wifi right there.

Hypoxia looks like a really interesting application. I listen to music everywhere, this would be a nice addition!

I want to test this app, i already stream from my HD linked to my router to all laptops in my network, want to try this with my Blackberry xD
