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 :)

ssjtiamat

After trying every single weather app out there, I have not found one that makes me say, "this is the one I will use!" I have heard good things about this one, but really dont see paying for an app that other developers offer for free. But I sure will take a free one of these should I win! Pick me! Pick me!

drclayton

need it for the tour!

Storm_Warning

Pick me!! I purchased the old copy of Berry Weather a while back but unfortunately had to pay for the upgrade :( I just couldn't bring myself to do it as much as I loved this app so I would love to win a copy of this!Thanks!

alakija

im the first... YIPEEE... please iv never won anything, i really need this

cactusluvc

This is Berry Good news. i don't have to watch the weather network in the morning or surf to sites. Love to win.

Jarras

Autumn, not too cold, not too warm and everything is a nice color here in New England.

KD-CCP

My favorite a toss-up between summer and fall.

TeriyakiJack

Winter. Living 1hr away from 3 ski mountains can't get any better.

Dsella

Winter least favorite for sure. Having to go out early to heat up the car, scrape windows off, and everything. Ohio winters are harsh and definitely hate them more than I love any other season.

edward4u

My favorite season is summer obviously. Nothing like beer and women...laying on the beach and soaking in some good old fashioned sun!

My fingers are crossed!

satur9ine

Live in central Florida so winters are perfect. Summers are harder, they are sticky and gross. And...That's what she said!

Beezzy

I hope I win Berry weather! Cool app and free! =)

cegoben

Summer is by far the best but is tied with spring and fall. As long as I am on my motorcycle I am happy!!!!!!

The Legendary

Hope I win. This software is great. My favorite season is winter (birthday and I love skiing). My least favorite seasons are fall and spring because I'm allergic to ragweed and pollen, which is so annoying.

cegoben

Summer is the best but its a good tie with sring and fall.. As long as I am on my motorcycle then I am happy!

rockys57

I have wanted this application since its launch. Please let me win!

motownnative

Being from CO it's a tough decisions since we get all four. Summer is probably the best...it's green, we have a great humidity balance, and it's tough to not enjoy 80 degree weather at 830 in the evening :) PLEASE HOOK ME UP WITH BERRYWEATHER! Thanks, Crackberry...

dprovi

Fall! The vibrant colours of the trees against the cold grey of the sidewalk and city buildings is gorgeous!

Ctrl_Alt_Del

I need an app like this on my Tour. Since I use the built-in GPS to get to my destination anyway (for work), BerryWeather would tell me what kind of weather to expect there. Many times, the weather will be fine at work, but get worse when I drive towards my destination, or get hotter, wetter, drier..whatever the case may be.

I use a weather app now, but it doesn't have the radar capabilities I could use. Detailed forecasts would ROCK!

I definitely need this app!

david42545

Fav. season is fall. in updates NY, the fall colors are the best and the golfing is awesome.

DJ G.MAC

I hope I win........

hunoosh

I have to get all the sun I can being in New England! I never know if its coming or going! They say about NE.......if you don't like the weather....wait a minute! That's how often it changes!

sc0rpi001#CB

It's all about the warm weather and cool water of Beantown! Now let's get a copy of this so I can keep an eye on the crappy weather we have the other 9 months of the year.

yankskick1221

winter- skiing, snow, birthday, holidays.

denniswong13

Would love to give this app a shot. My favourite season is summer cuz I both play and coach soccer. This app will help me prepare the team for games and practices!

quinnytastic

I'm too cheap to pay for it, a free copy would be awesome.

estroh

This is the best program - would love to win a free copy for my Tour

jsbs5

Been using the free version for the past few weeks, and by far best weather program I have found. Would be great to win a copy of the full version.

ye1cee

love the summer... it's not too hot here (in norcal) most of the time, hate winter when it is wet and windy sometimes.

kako1979

Never been a big fan of the frigid winters.

z_scorpio_z

tigga9545

UnicyclistRobe

I would be so happy that I would jump and yell in pure joy when I found out. [Even if I was in a meeting.]

tonix435

I got the free version...this new 2.1 looks great...hope to win...

kdsport

maybe it's worth a try.

Flawson

I'm sure I'd love the paid version more, esp. If it doesn't eat up memory

kdsport

maybe it's worth a try.

cdsfire

Fall has got to be my favorite. I have vast memories of jumping into piles of leaves and then checking my email on my Blackberry (of course).
I don't care for Summer it is too hot and rattlesnakes are crazy.

Crackberry for life!

1edyson

Leaving a comment, love BeWeather, and seeing the full version would be awesome!

baconboy101

I love the summer be

baconboy101

I love the summer be
cause it has given me the best moments in my life.

Batwings

The free weather apps just don't seem to cut it. This would be great to have.

essex80

I can definitely use this for when bussing it on those cold days to work so I can be prepared for whatever mother nature throws at me.

ernstaberry

Midwest it wont stop snowing randomly perfect to know when its going to snow... maybe.

jlung

Yay, I hope I win.

Skyeclad

AdamC

Adam in Tucson, AZ

ehall1957

juanPzamora

SAy whaaat?? love winter, its cold enough to make my girlfriend stay home all day everyday and get warm with me! if you know what i mean! XD hahaha

clemmel

I love the summer time because you don't have to worry about getting cold.

Awryter

I'm a big flower guy, so I love the green growth of the spring, when everything seems to come back to life.

The winter on the other hand is full of slush and biting wind. I can do without it!

douglasfamily

I was debating on buying this morning, but hopefully Crackberry can make up my mind. Thanks guys!

TurboCam

I have tried a few weather programs and always delete them in the same day.

This is the best one by far......I kept it until the free trial ran out......now, just waiting for it to go on sale!

thanks for the free beta trial!

Yahsaves

I need a good weather app.

Shaved Berries

My favorite season is spring. You finally get to shake off the chills from winter and I love a sunny day in the mid 60's. Perfect.

jcoelho

I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED THIS!

redbadger

I would love to have it--the beta was great!

cburkey#CB

I want a copy of BerryWeather for my Storm 2 I have the free version and it rocks

Blindfutur3

Spring - Hot enough for a t-shirt, cool enough that the nights aren't unbearable

ST1100A

What is my favorite season? Do we even have seasons here in southern California????

BrownSuperman

Using the tweaked zen precision theme, and this would be perfect for the weather icon.

Smitty267

Would be great to win the new version of BerryWaether 2.1.

gordiens

Sure could have used this app today! Got a foot of snow....

PurNrG

I need to know when winter is over and spring is here!

quartercounter25

I could use Berryweather to plan my next work day. I need to know if the temps will be below freezing at night. Cant wait for spring. I hate the cold!

Nafarious

Its a toss up between Summer and Winter. I like sledding and I like Biking... I would have to say Summer wins because of the warmer weather in Canada, but this winter hasn't been too cold... yet!

jkblevins

Hook me up! Before I owned a house with lots of trees, I liked Fall. Now, I enjoy Spring...

dataz722

I could use a nice weather app especially with the 36 inches of snow we are supposed to get this week.

robarias

It will be a perfect companion to my new 9700 :)

joseph27cohen

Thanks Crackberry for the contest, i think that this is the best app that Crackberry can gift me, please pick me. I really really love this app.

ubersurfer

I firmly believe the only ones who enjoy winter are those who have money invested in it.

I'm sure a free BerryWeather app will help keep me warm.

*brrrr*

NIN-Berry

I hate Winter! I hate having to have to complete sets of clothes here in the midwest and I can't stand the wet dirty mess the melting snow causes. I also hate wet snow in my boots and/or shoes. Anyway... I hate Winter...

TimmyTwo2

My favorite season is Spring, it's not too cold or too hot, plus no snow here in the midwest. I HATE SNOW! LOL, I hope I win!

batrad

Love to get a copy..

Thanks

scottsheehan

winter because you can make a huge snow man than blow it up with dynamite !!! fun stuff for all ages lol

station_500

would love to win a copy !

simplechaos

Because I can get on my dirtbike and off the ramp!!

giz1717

Baseball, beach, bikinis!

DoinItWright

I live in Southern California, so Winter is my FAVORITE season. It's pretty much the only two months or so I can leave the house in a sweatshirt and not be uncomfortable. And even then its a crap shoot. We'll get 90 degree days thrown in randomly. LOL

QriTiKaL

This would be great, thank you

bhunter

This would be awesome

champr

Have to say I hate winter the most. Just plain being tired of being cold. Glad I don't live where it is real cold anymore. Five years in ND was enough for me.

skynny70

Would love to win a free copy since for some reason Mobihand thinks I ordered and installed BerryWeather for OS 4.2 on my OS 4.5 8330. I have emailed tech support repeatedly an have not received any replies. The strangest part is the supposed wrong version works perfectly fine on my Curve. I am pretty sure I even updated the version I have at least once since the original purchase.

Dinky89484

Long live the Home Screen Weather App Icon!

ajsciutto

best weather app out there for the storm hands down. I'd love a free copy though ;)

mscooley

Beginning of basketball season and the weather in Mississippi is "normal"

u4rhea

Looks like a greatly improved app. I'd like to try it out.

colt452

everyseason has it downs, spring is always wet, summer is always too hot, fall you have to rake leaves, and winter (espcially in northern UTAH) you have to shovel tons of snow. BTW please pick me :)

SMJUCmoose

Fall is my favorite season, it means time to hunt. and when hunting It would be nice to know the weather.

killerxmic

I love winter, not crazy bout the cold, but snow is my favorite part of winter. I'm a snowboarder, and I need my snow. Then we have snowball fights, but NYC haven't been getting that much snow, so mostly slush fights!

-Mike

periwinklemoon

I travel (woman alone + big dog for protection) across two states to go back to my hometown a lot. Older family relies on me there, it's rural and they can't manage anymore. I watch weather constantly. Much as I love warm spring days and all things renewed again, I don't like driving next to semi trucks in storms. To get radar I have to hit a bookmark online. I'd rather have it at a click of a button, but DH is about to be laid off and I have to watch the $.

So I'd love a free copy!
Yeah, it's a sob story, but it's all true. ;)

PDM

Winter in Europe this year has been a nightmare... I enjoy spring - but love summers!

PeekPoke

Spring brings new life... Come already!

tk0596

It would be great to have a copy. I like winter here in So. Cal. A bit of a change in weather and everything is green!!

sherryrn2001

Swimming! 4 wheelers! fishing! Bonfires! Enough said...

gomez72000

give me that free weather

bling blang

runriverrun

My favorite seasons are spring and summer as that is when the rivers are running and the rafts come out. But then, winter is pretty important as that's when the snow falls which then melts so the rivers are runnable. I just wish we could condense our Colorado winters in to one or two months.

gummyjelly

My favorite season is summer because I love tanning :)

Jaxur05

I need this for my Storm, the weather is key in my business

davidcox6

Just discovered Berry Weather. Love the program. Please let me have a free copy.

o0o

I'd like one please

F0nage

but where I live we don't have any.

So lay a nice free weather app on me, and I won't feel bad that Bellshare doesn't respond to emails.

maddmann5

Love the fall, great season in NY to play golf!!!

sogaduch#CB

Berry Weather would be a great App for my 9700 to tell me when the weather is getting warmer here in cold Canada. So I hope I am one of the lucky winners so I can plug in warmer climates when im under 3 blankets in bed and pretending im there.

bubbasixx

I love fall in the Berkshires. The air is so clean and crisp. The foliage is second to none. It is so comfortable day or night with light breezes and clear skies.

It also helps that I got married on a warm day in October during peak foliage almost ten years ago.

Fall will always be my favorite.

w1tw0lf

I currently use the free version and would love to have the full version.

Live in sunny south africa and love the summer sun in the bushveld nothing beats it. Winter coz its to cold to go out in the bush and walk around.

Burnhamm#CB

This looks like it is the best weather app.

Lex82

I love all the seasons.

Pathtek4

Would enjoy a copy of this

Mainiak Blaniak

Best weather app out there for any season, including autumn, the best time for hiking and campfires. Beta'd this app and it didn't tank my 9700. I want the full version.

birdiesmom

I'm a new BB user and the free version of Berry Weather was my first app! I Love It BUT I live in Tornado Alley and torndado season is coming soon. This app could save my life! I need the full version. Birdiesmom in Oklahoma.

TurboTiger

Leaving in the South, we manage to escapte most cold weather. However, when it comes the cold, I can't stand it even though it is mild relative to other parts of the country.

Nevertherless, I hate the cold weather.

Good Luck

DudeVee

My least favorite season is winter by far. I just moved back to KS from San Diego, and the weather here has been cold and unpredictable. It's snowing as I type, but the weather seems to jump all around. It will be freezing outside and snowing, and then the very next day it will be like summer outside, and the next day it will be throwing down rain and thunderstorms. Never know what it's going to be like next.

mjheat28

florida summers are ridiculous. way too hot. come back fall.

pinnacletx

Tired of using WeatherEye. :(

cm99xj

I have this app on my 9550 and use it all the time to check weather before skiing. I would love to win a copy for my wife's phone too. Thanks.

ShamusW

Ok, this looks like it would work very well. Been loking for temp on homescreen for awhile.

lazagna

Spring and fall are my favourite seasons, because i can get outside and run.

Summer is good because it's hot, but too hot to run all the time, and Winter sucks here in Calgary, because it's too unpredictable and icy for running.

pbrizzy

I would love to win the full version. Have the free one right now and I love it. I have to say I like spring. Not just because I was born in spring, but its when the NBA gets exciting, NFL Draft is during this time and I start planning for Fantasy Football. The weather is never too hot or too cold. Its the beginning for a fresh start. My Storm 9530 is put to full use at this time with everything going on with sports and scheduling for activities in spring. Plus the weather display on Berry Weather will continue to show the sun.

BDR529

ditto, this new version is a huge improvement over the previous. It doesn't cause the lag on my 8530 like it used to everytime I unlock the phone or open it. I almost deleted it before, but I love it now!

smokin2thenub

I was a Beta tester for this and love it!

BSUmitch

Here in Boise, i love Summer, its all about boating, going to the river and hiking... I know someone with the full paid berry weather and it looks amazing. Thinking of purchasing it soon anyway, though winning it would be great.

teddyp6

Not too cold, not to hot...Nuff Said. I would love a copy of this. Thanks

BIG CAT 7

Will this be the one I finally win???????????

flipmodemvp

Though I hate the cold, Winter is my favorite season because I love long snowboarding trips!!!

jmuscag

free copy please :-)

mustangforlife35

Everyone loves curling up under the covers, so winter wins here. Plus, you can always make yourself warm, but cooling off is next to impossible (especially down here in Tejas).

Mindguy

I want it...and I want it NOW!

paulamesbury

like summer cause i get to ride, dislike fall because everything dies.

mundo472

A close runner up is blackfly season, though offset by trout fishing!

Prafeston

My favorite season is Fall/Autumn. I weater is usually very nice in the MidWest and the colors on the trees is beautiful.

Hope I can win one of these free BerryWeather Apps!

alai99

I love sprint, not too cold and hot. Perfect weather for me.

zenfloater

I love all season cuz I live down in S FLA !!! :)
Bring on the free license !!!

ruhrohs

I hope I win, I NEED this app for the winter so I can check the weather conditions of the ski resorts before I head out there.

GirlieGirl285

i love the spring/summer because of the nice spring like colors. i hate fall and winter because of the cold and snow.

type_s

Best seasons for mr are spring and fall, because it's not too cold and not too hot.

striperbooter

Would love to get this app. I have read a ton on this one and it seems that this is the go to app for weather on the berry!

Rosso

Looks fantastic. I would love to win this

hill76

I've been using the BerryWeather and LOVE IT!

flufflogic

I am currently living upstate, so Winter and me have a very harsh relationship. The pain of chapped lips and cold fingers make me saddened.

harugirlie

I love the summer and can use this to see how warm it'll be outside so I can wear my tanktops!

fu53d

Haven't picked up this app yet, great contest for people to win one, thanks CB! :)

sperho

r1ckynutz

Romanu

Spring has to be my favorite...the joy of getting out of the winter cold and the promise of baseball and summer just around the corner...

Halifax Guy

Weather is somethign that everyone talks about at least once a day. This is a great way to stay abreast of the upcoming forecasts.

jaritdm

Awesome! I need this cool application...I am the weather man..sort of!

GeminiPilot

My least favorite season is spring because everything starts blooming and my allergies are horrible.

Logsdale

I would love a copy of this!

Mars-Fan

Winter, without a doubt! Hockey, curling, spiced beer, clear crisp nights to look at the stars.

jzver#CB

would love to have a copy

Balance.

Having this app will be handy since Calgary weather changes without warning...
My favorite season is summer cause I get to go play tennis and golf... And can walk around parks and enjoy the sun too!
Least favorite will be fall... Too cold and windy for tennis and golf... And not cold enough or any snow fall for snowboarding...

vyrenee

Cause everything is blooming!

klover2cb

summer is my least favorite season...the bugs, the HEAT, mowing the yard...need this app for my storm so I know how to dress for the day!!

Logsdale

i live in south florida so we really only get summer down here, which i love! no snow, and the ability to go to the beach on christmas day. what more could you ask for!

Hsetirp

I check the weather 10 times a day ! no idea why but I do ....

LeadPencil

With a chance of Meatballs

patrickrho

The competition is crazy now!
but I need to win!!

Thanks!

se1000

Been using it for a couple days now and really like the new version!

SirThale

I love winter, myself. Mostly because I love snow. :) The other seasons are nice too, but bring on the snow!

Timelessblur

For me my favorite season is the summer.

Dobe Man

I have the free version but would absolutely love to have the full new version 2.1

I hate winter...and here in the mid-atlantic we are having quite a long and miserable one. I can't wait to move to FL.

johnnie4889

I just got my 9700!! This would make it perfect!

josebunbury#CB

FutureDroid3owner

Love the start of spring. Baseball starts!!!! Pitchers and Catchers report to camp!

vcginc

Now if it can promise sunny days I would love it

Jayreyd

I would be really grateful to win a copy crackberry!

triumphrider

I need this for my long summer days out riding my motorcycle in the mountains

SwingOp3

I NEED this for my Storm. Living in the frozen Canadian prairie I need to know if I'm likely or very likely to die should I get caught on the wrong side of door!

BlaZiN1213

My least favorite is winter, its cold, sloppy and gloomy. Give me any of the other seasons anyday

bighamma

Selkirk, Manitoba is colder than Siberia

YodaEXE

I love the Spring. It's nice to finally see the sun again and to be able to go outside in jeans and a t-shirt, but it's not the super hot that it tends to get during the summer.

RedLT1

I'd love to win a copy of BerryWeather!!
BTW, I NEVER win anything so it would sure be nice to win this.
But if I don't win, good luck to everyone!

robts92

I live in southwestern Ohio and as anyone who has ever been here knows that the weather here is always changing. For me, winter is the worst! warm enough today for a light jacket and tomorrow I will need a winter coat and snow shovel. If it were to just stay either warm or cold would be just fine!

agosine

I like all the seasons in Canada.

Winter because I am learning how to skate and play hockey in my old age. Kinda sad since I was born here.

Spring because it is not too cold or too hot.

Summer because I can get out on my motorcycle and just ride.

And Fall... hmm... Damn those leaves I have to rake up!

Limjelo

Looks great! would love this app.

Leach0789

Sign me up! I use the free one now.

mariostamile

IN!

jdlauctions

Looks pretty freakin cool guys! Would love to give it a try!

tklado7@gmail.com

Hope the official release is even better. Maybe I'll win one!

eduardog21

I'm Crossing My Fingers. I Use The Free Version So It Would Be Awesome To Win The Premium Version. Fingers Crossed.

jcadiram

I love my BlackBerry Storm and love rainy season. Nothing like getting curled up on the couch on a grey, rainy day with my trusty Storm.

hhaber

wow i would like to win a copy

akreischer

My favorite season is summer because I enjoy sitting in the sun at the beach. The sun warms me from the inside out and puts a smile on my face.

st_temps

I love all seasons! Snow in the winter, the calours in the autum, flowers in the spring and beer and BBQ in the summer!!!

cbr929

i would really love to win a free copy of berryweather
