Howdy CrackBerry nation! Another week has come and gone and it is time once again to reflect on what has happened. We began this week with an informative BerryFlow Upstream Podcast whereby an array of topics and news were discussed. Next, we saw John Chen speak out against a certain Ontario MPP on his wanting to change the BlackBerry-only policy. Finally, we also let you know about the Vision Mobile Developer Economics survey, whereby a few participants are eligible to win a limited edition red Z10. Also, if you haven't had a chance, time is running out to take advantage of the latest Amazon Appstore giveaway that includes over $110 worth of apps and games.
Now it's time to bring you this week's picks for all your passionate BlackBerry addicts out there. You can find each app and game I've rustled up for you by clicking through the gallery below. If your favorite did not make the cut this week, remember you can help by offering your suggestions at the end.
Weather Beautiful by Ebscer
First up this week is a suggestion by one of our readers. Weather Beautiful is a basic and simple weather application. It comes to us by way of the developer that brought Pixelated and Classic Camera. One of the things I enjoy about this app is how it pulls images from your surrounding area as its own background (which do rotate). For instance, when I am in Manhattan, I see images from various landmarks in NY, and when I'm in Boston I see their skylines. Viewing the weather is quite easy and all you do is swipe up to see the 7-day forecast and then swipe to the left or right to scroll through the hourly forecast. There was an issue where certain locations would show a black background if no images were available (a default background option would be nice to have), though a recent update appears to have corrected it. Overall, this is a nice application for viewing the weather in your area quickly without entering in zip codes or towns. It offers a nice design and layout, and the images are quite pleasant to look at. You can download Weather Beautiful for free for BlackBerry 10.
