BerryWeather 2.1 Public Beta Now Available

The folks at Bellshare let me know their insanely popular weather application BerryWeather has been updated to version 2.1.40 and is now out of public beta and officially available. A lot of key differences came with the 2.1 version as it's a re-write of the original code which will perform better across all BlackBerry devices, while taking nothing from the BerryWeather that so many have come to love. As a thank yout to everybody at CrackBerry who helped Bellshare with the beta testing of the latest version, they have offered us up 50 free copies to give away to our readers.

Win a Free Copy of BerryWeather: Drop a comment on this post for your chance to win one of 50 full versions of BerryWeather. Let us know what your favorite season is or what you hate about your least favorite season. For me, it's winter. Hockey and curling and snowmobiling aside, Canadian winters are never fun as it often times gets cold enough to freeze your face off. I'd much rather be at the beach :)

BerryWeather 2.1 Gets Official; Thank You to Beta Tester Contest: 50 Free Copies of BerryWeather to be Won!



i would dig this one for my storm i love the summer and hate the winter so what better app for me to have

I would love to win! Summer is the best cuz 1. I'm a cali girl...I HATE the cold 2. cute/sexy clothes finally get to come out of hiding! 3. Bikinis and the beach...enough said :)

I HATE winter because its none of those things. Really I just hate being cold.

I like the summer cause I can go fishing with my family without freezing. Not winter as much cause its almost to cool to do anything. I would love to have one of these. Thanks!!!!!!!

Winter. Normally I dont mind, but this winter has been so cold for so long. Summer can get tough in the midatlantic too. Its hot and humid,.

Apparently, winter was fun back in grade school. No school because of inclement weather, play in the snow, etc. But now that we're all grown up we have to drive through that mess and shovel it or get a lawsuit if someone trips on YOUR ice. To be young again..
Anyway, I like berryweather a lot.

I love the fall because the foliage is beautiful, the weather is typically very pleasant, and it is football season, meaning tailgating fun and wonderful grilled food. I would definately make great use of this app!

Well, I used to like winter, but now it a good bit less. Since I've moved to Virginia from Pennsylvania, I dislike the snow more, because they don't know how to plow / treat the roads here, and the people here don't know how to drive in even a dusting of snow.

Nice app, but I've been holding of upgrading from the old version. Might pull the trigger if I don't win the drawing.

i love summer in my home town of san diego. perfect weather perfect skies beaches arent great but the women there are! endless summer for real :)

Winter is the worst time of year for me, I work in the asphalt field in Ohio which means when winter hit I don't work...This is an app I have on my must have list, weather is very important to people in my field even in the Summer months.

summer. I love the warm weather so I can go to the beach. My least favorite is the winter because I hate the cold weather.

My favorite season is winter, love the snow and hockey, besides, really hate hot weather, so winter is the one for me!

Good luck everyone!

I hate the heat, so most seasons are out. I'll take a nice cold winter any day, over the grueling heat of the summer!

I operate an outdoor facility in the northeast and this looks as if it would be a very helpful app since Iam not always near a computer

The shades on my windows are I can't raise them to look outside and see what the weather looks, I NEED BerryWeather 2.1!

I think living in LA, seasons don't matter as much. But if a rolling blackout destroys your central air, you can always layer on crap to stay warm in the winter, but if its hot you can only do so much to stay cool.

I picked up a copy of the version 1 software when it was on sale... but I would really like a copy of the "new and improved" version 2 software.

Here in Mexico city, we have been experiencing a series of cold front lately. You think it's bad in Canada (where I am from) but at least the house are built for this. It's only 5 or 6 degrees (C· of course), but it is still DAMN cold!!!

Using the free version and love it. Would love to have the ability to use Cell Location/GPS.

fav season is summer...of course...least fav...WINTER!!! gets to minus 40 celcius in calgary!!!! it sucks!!! hockey all the way!!!

fall is the best season, especially in seattle for two reasons - more sun, higher temps than summer and baseball playoffs! shifty seattle weather calls for the best weather app. PICK ME PLEASE OH PLEASE!

I've been wanting this for awhile, but couldn't bring myself to ay for it. I'd really like this cuz I live on the panhandle of westvirginia, and the whole tri-state area has the moodiest weather I've ever seen. Itd be nice to be kept up to date on the constantly changing temps.

The weather here in Pittsburgh changes minute by minute. Ice storms and snow one hour and sunshine and 30 degrees the next. It would be sweet to have Weatherberry for my Storm to help predict the next storm for the 'burg....

I love the app on my blackberry, lets me track weather in 3 locations without going into my browser. I tack home, the coast and the mountains... great for a photographer to know :D

everyone is happy leaving winter behind and all kinds of fun events and activities start. on the other hand it's baseball season and i hate that.

I just hate the cold and the darkness during the days, makes me feel down.
Now I don't want to bed but please let me win one. I payed for berryweather for 4.6 thinking I would get the homescreen wallpaper option, well I didn't and that's the reason I purchased it :(

It is too hot and humid here in Georgia in the summer. Only place on earth you can be in a drought and have 99% humidity. Spring and fall are great, nice outside and good fishin' weather. I need Berryweather to let me know when a storm is brewing while I'm out on the lake!

I detest winter and love summer. I do not like the cold or the snow and therefore spend much of the time in doors which I do not like. For me its a major inconvenience.

While during the summer, I can be outside whenever I want whether its just around the house or traveling some place for pleasure. I can enjoy watching games, going to the ocean or or just sitting outside enjoying some rays.

It would be nice to receive the upgrade for free. I paid for the first version and missed the cut off by a few days and work with the free version now. How about that upgrade!!

fall. besides housing my birthday, the temperatures are perfect. i can't stand the freezing cold of (cleveland) winter, the rain/humidity of spring, or the extreme heat of summer. i would love to add this weather app to my storm 2!

Fall is the best time of year and Berry weather will make all of the seasons better and my job easier.

Let us know what your favorite season is or what you hate about your least favorite season. For me, it's winter. Hockey and curling and snowmobiling aside, Canadian winters are never fun as it often times gets cold enough to freeze your face off. I'd much rather be at the beach :)

I'm from Malaysia. There's no 4 seasons in my country. But getting wet when rain?? Hmm.. nobody likes getting cold & fever. But rain always full of emotions.

I love early fall you can dress well but not bundle need to bundle up, the leaves are changing, get the fireplace going, ok who am I kidding FOOTBALL starts in the early fall! Late winter miserable weather slush and sleet and football ends. lol in all seriousness I use this app everyday I always keep an eye on the cities I travel to frequently so I know what weather is in store for me

I hate, really HATE, when winter turns into spring. When everything is melting, I come back home with my shoes and jeans wet...

Currently running the lite version. Would love the full version. Thanks for running cool contests.

Being recently unemployed and having plenty of time to think about/research the apps I'd love on my Storm, this is one that tops my list - although I'm too broke to actually buy it for now, it'd be nice to have!

My favorite season is Spring time. It's not too hot or too cold. Here in Houston, TX the summers get ridiculously hot and it's really humid so you walk outside and you're all sweaty and sticky and i hate that.

Well its always good to know when it will be a sunny day especially when u live in Jamaica...but for the months that are not Christmas break and summer when i am in manhattan....i would love to kno how warm i need to dress in the winter months before stepping outside in the freezing cold.....Let my berry give me a heads

Spring is my least favorite. Sure it starts to warm up, but its wet and the allergies are terrible.

we're expecting 6+ inches of snow's to hoping for an early weekend (and a free copy of berryweather).

Looks like a cool app. Would come in handy when golfing in the summer, or doing any other outdoor activity, regardless of season.

I am a winter person since I like hockey and believe it or not I am an American who Curls and has been curling for 17 years. While I like summer I hate how hot it gets in the NYC subway and sweating my ass off just walking to work.

The reason I hate the winter is because, well.... I guess I don't dislike any of the seasons. but if I have to like one less than the others it would be winter cuz its too cold to fish

As someone who lives in Michigan and is addicted to golf, Winter is easily my least favorite season. Not to mention the sun comes out abut 5 times the entire winter. Spring, Summer and Fall are awesome, the changes are beautiful to watch. Plus I have a nice Mustang that is stored every winter. I'm looking forward to nicer weather soon!

I love the temperatures in Spring because it is warm, but not quite hott & steaming. I also love Easter and the pastel colors.

I cannot stand the cold weather, and just do not like the snow. I don't like cold December, January, And February mornings. They make me want to get back in bed!!!

My favorite season would have to be fall. The leaves are changing, the temp is just right and Hockey is starting.
Living in the Praries this app would be perfect for the ever changing temps. & conditions.

You gotta love spring here followed closely by fall. Winter (what there is of it) and the heat of summer are just OK. But spring is top out (or down) weather during the day with cool evenings. It's the schiznitz guys. Really.

Oh yeah......I'd really like to win.

As the first days of spring come rolling around the golf courses tend to get a bit more crowded. At the sametime who knows when a spring shower is on it's way. None the less golfing in the spring has to be the best time of the year.

Hi guys! Nice contest! My best season is by far summer, I live in greece and most of u know what's like spending summer here. My worst is winter cause here it NEVER snows!

So this app may be handy I guess now I can know when its gonna snow a bit :)!

Winter is my least favorite season. If only because they don't know how to clean up the snow in NYC and it turns to slush so fast it is gross.

Spring is my favorite season, not too hot, not too cold... I hope I win BerryWeather, I could definitely use this!


I like sprummer. The period between the end of the spring and start of the summer. You know, before it gets really hot but there's a lingering chance of spring showers.

Winter is definitely my favorite season. I just like to be in the cold and wear my thick jacket. Also the snow of course!

Favourite season...must be FALL
Or maybe SPRING
....Hmmmm...SUMMER is nice!
WINTER is always fun,don't know!
Let me have berry weather,and I will tell u!;)

Well, I live in Mexico and the weather is crazy, sometimes it goes rainy, sometimes sunny, windy... you can never tell what kind of weather is going to be... I love rainy and cold days like today...

I'd like this weather app because they all suck so this would be nice. I hate winter well cause I live in canada enough said there lol

My least favorite season is easily winter. Short days, slick roads, and thw cold make it no fun for this Coloradoan.

Favorite season is a combination of Spring and Fall. The weather is just right for t-shirts during the day and light jackets at night. Love it.

Least Favorite is probably Summer, I used to love it because I got out of school...but now Im in the real world and it doesn't work that way. Now, it's just hot. And I live in Mississippi, so it's usually too hot and humid to move outside.

I LOVE Summer time. I love the warmth of the sun on my face in the middle of the afternoon. I love the smell of fresh-cut grass...I better stop before I get going!

But, with all of what's GREAT to love about Summer, I HATE that all summer long I am getting excited for college and professional football, only to realize that to have one means to not have the other ...because when Football is in full-bloom, it means the trees and flowers are not! :(.

That's my "summer time blues" explanation :)...


Im with you on the winter thing. I dont enjoy snow due to the driving conditions. Some people just shouldnt drive in snow.

Favourite season - Winter. I love hockey and ice fishing.
Least favourite season - Winter. I hate everything else about winter hehe.

Winter in Alaska... It's 4F outside. I'm wearing three layers, running my heater under my desk, and drinking hot tea. 6.5 weeks until my vacation to a warm place! Come on spring!

I have used this app and have the latest release of the new rework and the memory leak is terrible on version 2.1.36 lost 26MB in the course of 7 hours

winter is my favorite, for snowboarding of course!

this is a great app, and i would love to have it..

I'm in Texas so of course i like the heat better than the cold. You can't always were enough clothes when its cold, but you can always strip down to your skivies when it is hot. Bring on the heat, i have my b-day suit waiting!!!

I do enjoy watching winter olympics though!! Can't wait!

My favorite season is spring. BerryWeather will come in very handy to let me know whether or not I will be able to do a lot of mountain biking or not this spring.

I too hate freezing my face off, and the fact that I quite frequently forget what color my vehicle actually is due to all the salt/dirt/whatever else they use to treat the craptacular roads build-up.

without a doubt is Spring. Great temp. and everything is coming back to life.

This sure would look nice on my 9700

Would love to be one of the first to use, as I've been waiting for this app for a while now!
Thanks for the opportunity...

I am a Truck Driver I am constanly checking the weather with my blackberry to see if I am going towards bad weather. I had a storm and used weather bug, know I have a curve and have to use The weather channel I'm not impressed with weather channel. If you find a better weather program let me know.

I live in Boston, spend my weekends hiking and backpacking in New Hampshire, where the weather can change quickly. I bring my Storm into the hills and use it for the camera, and also, importantly, to check the weather for the upcoming day.



I can haz free copy? Not a fan of winter because the kids never want to go outside when it's cold. Spring/Summer means another Formula 1 season!!!

Growing up in Ft. Lauderdale, FL I can't stand the Florida summers. There is no worse feeling than jumping into a car that's 150 degrees plus and taking the AC 30mins to begin putting out "cool" air. Ugh!

My favorite season is a toss up between fall & winter. I love the cooler temps & colors of fall, and the snow of winter. However the temps of winter I can do with out~

Since my husband plows snow, this app would be PERFECT for our monitoring the weather conditions as they can change in a second in the Midwest.

Thanks for the chance!

I've always used WeatherBug and been happy with it, but I must say some of the updated BerryWeather features make it intriguing.

Sweet app, just what my Bold is missing. Right now we have extremly winterish weather here in Sweden, so I could really use something that help me prepare for the coming day's weather!

best weather Autumn, i love shift in color of the tree's and plus with the bluish/grayish weather everything seems soooo dreamy like to me (i have never seen bright sunshine in my dreams, its always bluish/grayish in my dreams).
worst weather by far is the cold, esp here in boston. the cold breeze and chill feels like a SLAP on the face =/

I would love to have a copy of this for my tour. I don't like winter and I don't like anyone who does...........

WOOT! for my Tour

Go Berry Weather you're burining up the 409
Go Berry Weather Go Berry Weather

Would love a copy of BerryWeather for my storm!! Fall is the best season with the color of the trees, the coolness in the air & the start of my favorite sport, hockey!

So I love winter and for Houston we have had a pretty decent one this year. I hate summer though. So hot and muggy and the rain! I would love this program so I could be better prepared for our rainy season this time around.

I am really hating this winter here in Dallas. It rains all the time. Rugby in the mud is fun, but it gets old after a while.

I sure could use this app to know if we can play or not...
