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

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!



Hey, you asked what my favorite season is. I love spring in New England! Everything turns green and it starts getting warm. It makes me feel energized and ready to go out into the woods and trails.
I agree with the author that winter is terribly cold. I spent a number of years stationed at K. I. Sawyer AFB in Marquette county in the Upper Peninsular of Michigan. Winter started in September and ran through April (sometimes even through May) and we got 220 inches of snow and faced wind chills of -40F often. I can do without that kind of weather!!

Mine would be summer. I am a shorts and t-shirt kinda guy. Its not fun wearing sweaters and bulky coats. Also, I'm not a fan of freezing my face off!

I love the warming temperatures and the beginning of baseball season and when i can wear flip flops again. I love this App it is very quick and reliable!!!

I hate winter cause its freezin, the only time I can deal with it is when I am skiing! If I am not skiing I am whinning about the cold and that six pm looks like midnight. Gotta get me sum summer! Please pick me I never win, and for me to win this would be awsome because the weather app I have now is not as good as BerryWeather and as I said I am obsessed with weather! Its the app I use the most!!!!!! PLEASE!

Whether it's an old Storm or a new Storm, this weather application will storm it's way onto my Storm. BerryWeather is "berry" cool.

Summer can't come fast enough. I too am in the great white north and we go days without even knowing what the sun looks like. I check the weather everyday with just a glimpse of hope that maybe, just maybe I will be able to wear my Oakleys today because the sun is out. May cannot come soon enough....... Would love to be able to check the weather with BerryWeather instead of the crappy unnamed weather app I have...................... Ryan

I love the spring here in Atlanta it is not too hot. I get to do one of my passions coaching youth football. Also spring practice for college football the best sport in American

I love this app...I need this app...I want this app...GIVE ME THIS APP! I had weatherbug first before trying this app...the Weatherbug app is GAHBIGE!!!! compared to this one.

Favorite season in Summer of course. Living in Chicago, that's the only season you can really enjoy all that Chicago offers!

And I need this cause the 2.0.xx version has a memory leak!!

I like summer. Nothing better than going boogie boarding at the beach and looking at the very beautiful ladies in bikinis.

I would love this on my storm. Thanks for the chance. My favorite season is spring. It's not too hot or too cold. Just perfect like this app!

fall is the best season due to college football and beautiful weather at night. winter is the worst because it gets cold and there are no places to ski down here.

Well being from michigan I get to experience the highs and lows of all weather conditions so opposite of whatever season it is at the time

My favorite season is winter, because the snow,hockey, ski, snowboard, and canceled classes and snow boots. i hate summer because it is too hot, a lot of insects, bugs, and sweat, and the smell of sweaty people.

I would love this app, but would also love to know where I could get the background that is in the pictures, with the gears. So cool!

I hate winters!! Shoveling snow is the worst and I don't have a snow blower. I love summer, washing my car and seeing the women!! Wooooohooooo

Pick me please

I would love this app, but would also love to know where I could get the background that is in the pictures, with the gears. So cool!

Im a driver for a delivery company and i am on the road 6 days a week and can never tell what the weathers gonna be like i need this app. it looks amazing !!!!! PICK ME !!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!berry weather's the best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

my favorite season is spring. the time of birth for colors. not too cold nor hot. i hate summer. get all sweaty and sticky

Can I win a free of BerryWeather... Weather is changing soooooooo much here in Albany, GA needs an app that will keep me updated....Thanks...

I'm a TV Meteorologist in Kansas...I need an app like this on my 'berry to keep me posted on the ever-changing weather in this state.

i like all the seasons but if i had to pick one that i mostly dont like it would have to be winter. i dont like the cold that much.

...badly. My work is heavily dependent on the weather. I'm constantly calling friends asking them to check the radar. This would help me out immensely.

My favorite season is winter minus the snow. Would be great to have this app handy when those winter storms approach.

BerryWeather is the best for making travel plans during the otherwise unbearable snowy months. Brrr. Can't wait for beach weather.

My favorite season is summer! Call me crazy! Sunshine and warm weather are all I need to start shedding the clothes and getting some bronzey colour! :)

If I have to beg I will but it won't be very if you'd rather see me smile then 'PICK ME PLEASE' :)

this is the best weather app for blackberry. i bought this for my blackberry bold.. but now i would like to have another 1 for my girlfriend. please pick me for the free copy.. thanks. :) pick me please.

Been using the Free version and Trial of full version. Love this weather app, much nicer than WeatherBug or the other ones as well. I hope I win one!

This is my most favorite BB app till now. Hope I could get a free copy as my CNY gift. God bless me. Thanks CB in advance.

For a chance to win this!!! I have never won anything here, and I always hear great things about this app. So come on CB... show me some love!!!

Least favorite Summer... I'm in Houston, Tx. I'm in Houston Tx, so you'd think it'd be the other way around. But i do love me some cold weather!!!! There's something about humid, sticky, sweaty weather i dont like, oh yeah, the fact that its hot!!! Eww. lol

Sweet sounding app!! Definitely something that would help me out in knowing how much snow needs to be shoveled before the hockey game. Gotta love the fall/winter sports like hockey and football but the cold is really not for me. Much rather be somewhere warm but then I wouldn't be living in my team's town. Go Pittsburgh!!!!!

Fav weather is either super winter where I can go skiing all day or super sunny so it's outdoors time. I dislike all that comes between those two extremes :D

I hate winter in Michigan because it never stable.. One day could be pretty nice reminding you of early spring then all of the sudden it drops below zero over night with a heavy snow forecast.

I've been trying different weather apps and would love a copy of this please! I have BeWeather Free and would like the full app.

My least favorite season would be summer as I live in Texas. There's only so many 100 degree weather days I can take! Anyway I would love to win this app.

Winter is my season, love the cold, mind you i was born in the Dominican Republic which is warm/hot year round but love the cold lol. Maybe ill win this one? so far im 0-10 with these contest :\

For me, I hate most living in the appalachian mountains and having it be a decent, mild winter day when I go to class and coming out and its their calling for a storm large enough that we need to get a few days worth of groceries in case the roads arent drivable.

I live in San Diego. There are no seasons here -- just hot and hotter and not so hot. I used to like winter the best, but really miss seasons. BerryWeather will let me see the seasons change in other places...

I have the free version and would love to upgrade to the full version ( don't have the money to pay for it or I would) Also, my favorite season is fall. It brings the World Series and Football... Who Dey!

As a frequent traveller, I have to plan my work and play schedules carefully taking note of weather. Having the BerryWeather would be an additional advantage.

Thanks Creators of BerryWeather and Crackberry !!!

Maybe I can finally get lucky and win one of these contests !

I would have to say summer is the best season. Beer and BBQ, enough said.

I want to win this for my friend who got a tour a while ago. Also, I enjoy winter the most because I live in florida and don't have to deal with the shoveling of snow ;)

I live on Long Island and I prefer the summer months.There are so many places to go and see and do on the island in the summer.I would like a good weather program for my Storm 2

Hoorah, sign me up. Yippeikaye

Spring is my favorite, especially since my brithday kicks it off on Mar20. Golf courses open and the ladies start wearing skirts again. Perfect.

I want this app is one of the best and have been on the top 10 for a long time. Give me one copy please. Thanks.

I like this app very much, saw a post about it on YouTube..and it R-O-C-K-S!!
I actually just got my Bold 9700 a few weeks ago, and it is my very first BB, and so far I am very pleased with it.
Haven't bought any apps yet for my BB, but I was thinking of buying BerryWeather because it looks really good... But to win it would be even better!! :D

My favorite season is definitely SUMMER!! I am from Europe (Rotterdam, The Netherlands to be precise) and it is winter right now over here, and it's freezing! We've had a very cold winter this year, and I dislike it very very much!!

Another reason SUMMER is my favorite is because I miss the Aussie summers!! Last year I lived in Sydney for half a year for my study, and the weather was soooo much better!! Relaxing at the beach, feeling that sun on your face, that's life! So for me: SUMMER IT IS!

That's my story (and my first comment on CrackBerry) :D.... Please let me win BerryWeather!!!


I bought the previous version of BW right before 2.0 came out. Bad timing I guess. I sure could use a free upgrade.

My favorite season always seems to be Fall & Winter. Beacuse we ride dirtbikes, it's so much nicer in the cool weather. I could really use a copy of BerryWeather..


FALL BABY!!! You know what that means???????

(make-believe obnoxious font mode: ON) FOOTBALL BABY!!! YEAH!!!! (/font)

...oh yeah, and the trees changing color are cool too...

Winter is the best season, as that's when my two fav sport leagues start.....NBA and NHL. Especially this winter, as it is the Olympics!!! Go Canada GO!!!!

I wiissh thhaat ii ccoulllldd ttyypeee wwwitthhhoouttt shhhiiiivveeerrringgg sssooo iii ama soorrryy ffoorr thee tteexxtt meeetthhooodd ooff innnpuuutt. Iii neeed tthiiiss aappp ttooo ffiiiggguuurrreee wwehhheeennn tttthheee weeaattherr iiissss ggoing ttooo heeaaatt uppp!!!!

Thhaaannkk yyooouuu,

Definitely wish i could win a copy. The beta was sweet and is exactly what i was looking for in a weather app. Some others were too simple and others were just too much. This one is perfect!

I went outside the other morning dressed in shorts and froze my *** off. Weatherbug told me it was 85 degrees outside... piece of crap. :) The thermometer at the bank said 24 degrees. WTF?!!?? :) Let me get this... PLEASE!?!?!?

Oh yeah... I love summertime at the beach. Can't wait to get back...

autumn is my fav season - although i currently live in a country where there are only 2 seasons - hot or wet!!
autumn is great - it gives a very mellow feeling with the golden leaves and the rustling of the leaves on the ground. just beautiful!
oh - and this app looks great - i'll love it for my new Bold2

I have the free version and would LOVE the total package. I hate summers in Kansas cuz of the humidity and heat! I have long hair and man it gets hot and heavy. I love fall, great time to take my BB out on hikes and camping the full version here would be so awesome!

My blackberry is the first thing I check when I wake up every morning, and without looking out the window one day, I checked my weather app. The current condition showed sun, and as I walked out the door in my t-shirt, only then did I realize it was actually raining. I'd love to have a reliable weather app. Pick me please!

It would be nice to get the weather conditions,It is still the dead of winter here. Minus -27 I can't take it anymore!!!!

Too cheap to spend the cost of a lunch on a great app like this, but not too lazy to leave a comment to get a free copy (with luck) :)

My favorite season living in the western North Carolina mountains is easily spring! Opening the windows for the first time after the cold wet winter is like heaven. The cool crisp morning air pouring into the house feels amazing while I drink my coffee and check my email on my Storm II

Originally living in Texas and now living in Georgia I have to say Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons, mostly because I have a better idea of what to expect temperature wise. In the winter it can be in the 20's or the 70's all in the same day, and 50's or 100+ in the summer. The spring and fall are the same difference, but doesn't feel as extreme

fav season is summer, so that my storm will look so much brighter with my free berryweather application bright yellow sun as the background :)

Been wanting to get this, but not sure if I wanted to drop the cash on it. I would be honored to win a copy of this app!!!

Kevin, you gotta come to Australia next winter... we're sitting in 95 degree F heat surfing at the beach... even in our winter (your summer) you can tell the tourists (they're the ones still swimming)...

I'd love a copy of this great app. That way I can see how frozen you're getting while I'm roasting...
