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!



Spring is a new life, after winter, trees, sky, earth and Girls!!! The best time!
It is desirable to love, all such beautiful young, girls shift off superfluous ;)
Autumn quite another, sad, all in heavy paints, it is so desirable to get drunk and get lost, a permanent rain takes from a mind, it is time sadness and depressions (
i Love spring Sunny, spring sky, and Girls, my soul is begins to sing, the first rays of a sun gently caress the barely opened woman bodies only, pore of love and gladness!

Winter, because sitting in the sun in a tee shirt and shorts reminds me how lucky I am to be living in southern California.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease... :) Hook it up... LOL!!!

I hate summer in florida...because I hate how even when wearing flip flops/shorts/t-shirt you still have no choice but to sweat profusely!

I love summer, I love the color of sunshine, but don't be so hot, I love winter, I love snow, but don't be so could

I hate the winter time... and always follows the whether forecasts not to be a victim of a cold dirty weather...

Please give one copy to me!!!

I would have to say summer in the south. The reason is cause the hotter it gets the lets the ladies wear...Boy oh boy I cant wait for summer time just a few months away till it starts to warm up!

I'm English and everybody knows the English are obsessed with the weather!! I'd really like a free copy.


I'd like one! My favourite season is spring, if the weather's nice- great! If it's raining you don't mind as much as you would in July.

I hate the fall in seattle it rains too much. My favorite season is summer so i can drive around with my shirt off. Hook me up crackberry!

This is one weather app that works in Australia
There new updated weather engine is terrific
I want the full version
The free one isnt giving me enough info.

i live in afghanistan n im one of the 1st bb user in afghanistan n it would be great to have nice looking weather app on my bb curve 8520 cheeeerzz

I love the fall because the changing of the colors is so wonderful. I live in the northernmost tip of the UP of Michigan, and we really can appreciate the changes of color here because there is still so much of nature perfectly intact. Hockey season also kicks off during the Fall and just gets better from then on out!

Each season is great but spring is my fav.

Getting tired of winter, running out of firewood.

Let's put together a raid on Punxatawney and take out that evil Phil once and for all.

It's hard to choose but Spring and Autumn are two of my favourite seasons. I'm from Vancouver, Canada and both seasons are great! For spring, you get to see the leaves come back alive, flowers bloom. During April, the Sakura trees bloom and you can see the beauty that lies down the streets covered in Sakura Peddles. The air isn't too cold, the weather's great, everything seems to have full of energy. Then you have Autumn, I especially love the ever changing colours of the Maple leaves. Them falling on the ground makes fantastic photo oppurtunities! I can't wait for spring to come!

Man...I used to love winters in northern CA....the weather wasn't the best, but every so often, you'd have one of those 65 degree days in February (yes, waaay northern Cali). Now I'm in Jersey, and its just cold and snow.....and just when you're sick of the gets colder!!

So there's my story....hook a brother up with BerryWeather!!

Gotta love the winter here in the Florida Panhandle. No humidity from the summer and no shoveling snow. My Harley likes this season the best.

I hate driving around in snow! I hate cold winds, ice, and not a big fan of getting sick! The only good things about winter are Basketball and the end of winter!

Nice and warm down here in Houston, but the lack of any real seasons is a bummer. The seasons down here are hot and less hot:)

this looks awesome!!

my favorite season is for sure summer. its a great relaxing time when all of my friends get back together in our hometown and catch up.

Hook it up! I'm gonna go with punk rock mentality and say winter is my favorite because everybody else hates it.

I have WeatherBug but i am thinkin BerryWeather will blow it out of the water being that it is made by blackberry i wanna win it Lets Go!

Yes Sign me up ... I love the Blackberry and everything connected to it .. My Fav Season is Summer. I live in Florida so you can guess why, the beach and the fun in the sun ... everything seems better in the summer. we get hurricanes and lightning storms so id like to get the up to date weather weather bug is cool but has issues . Thanks

Winter is my favorite season because I love snow! I love snow boarding, Ice Fishing, Cottage Country! And Best of all I take my Bold 9700 everywhere I go! So please let me win!!!!!

I love springtime in Chicago. Grass turning green, flowers blooming, and the Cubbies back in town. It doesn't get any better than that...

Usually the first thing I do in the morning is check the weather and read email. I dislike the extremes of high and low temperature. I like to be outside at least once a day and frigid winter and blistering summer temperatures sometimes make that difficult. So I watch the weather forecasts and actual temperature to plan my outside times to coincide with the best temp/weather of the day (if there is one) in winter and mid-late summer. Since I always have my Blackberry with me that's the easiest place to check the weather.

I always wonder what the big deal about Berry Weather is, especially on a Storm when wallpaper means everything. What's the point of having a slick wallpaper when BW will change it anyway?

Let me take it.

Fall is my favorite season. From the wonderful foliage in New England to the perfect mix of hot and cold temperatures.

I would LOVE TO win this app, since I already purchased a earlier version a "few" months back.
I originally purchased this app for my Storm1 a few months ago BUT I purchased it from a 3rd world company ( before I found Crackberry/Mobihand.
I have nothing but negative things to say about Handango and NOW NOW NOW they no longer carry BerryWeather and they won't/can't even offer me an upgrade (app or price).
Gladly I found Crackberry and have purchased all (and I mean all, (I buy a lot)) my software through them for months now, but STILL I'm being held hostage for the 3 apps I purchased through Handango.
OK so after all this and it would be GREAT if I won a lic so that I NO LONGER have to think about that loosing company!

Summer rocks! Sunny days, cold beer, and steaks on the bbq.
Hate Winters. It rains all the time. Cant go anywhere

my favorite season is spring. excellent weather for a car wash buff like myself. i can spend 4+ hours just washing the outside of my car. then get up the next day and spend the same amount of time on the inside. the breeze is nice and it just seems perfect.

I'm in the winter is my least favorite because we have to have formations and do physical training outside....even if it's freezing or windy. We also do most of our training outside and sleep outside a lot, so it's not much fun. I love the spring time.....those first days that it's warm enough to ride with the truck windows down and crank some music are the best!

Take Care!

Best season has to be Fall. Not only is it really pretty out, but there's nothing like throwing a football around in that crisp/cool air.

Doing a touchdown dance in a pile of leaves is kinda cool too.

Although I would rather be sunning on a beach in Hawaii any day of the week. I work for an educational institution and you just can't beat a "snow day" :) The updated BerryWeather app would give me the heads up when I could double check my "hot chocolate supply" in preparation for a day at home watching KU play!!

i know most people love summer, but personally, it's my least favorite season, especially in NY. when summer hits and so does that stupid humid heat, on a 90+ day it is impossible to not feel sticky and gross (no matter how litte clothes you're wearing). At leats with winter you can always wear more clothes.
i love fall/spring, either or. 50-60 degree weather (hoodie weather) is perfect in my opinon!!!

:-) i want berry weather!!! lol

I'd love to win a copy of this app! As much as I love a little snow, winter is the worst because I have to shovel so much! My favorite time of the year is the end of summer/beginning of fall when it starts to get a little cool.

I hate the summer months in Texas with a passion cuz as an apt handyman, the days are too long, too hot,and too busy, and air conditioners are the bain of my existance!

Fall & Winter are the best/worst time of year... I don't mind the cold, feet of snow, or the numbing ears as along as the New England Patriots are playing. If they aren't, like this year, the winter is terrible..

Hey I would love a free weather application as good as this one. Would highly recommend it to my friends as well!

My favorite season is Spring here in NE Oklahoma where I live! Of course it's very unpredictable because we live in "tornado alley", but i still love it! I love trees budding out, flowers blooming, my kids running wild in the pasture with our dog, and just sitting outside to enjoy the warm air! Our other seasons are nice too, but summer is sticky and humid...winter is blah... and fall is pretty but rainy.

Have a great day!

I lived in Wisconsin for 2.5 years and over 100 inches of snow and weeks without breaking 0 degrees will make you hate it!

Summer in Australia can be hell, 40 - 45 degrees celcius...and I burn instead of tan...not fun :( Berryweather can prevent all that :) Sunny, stay indoors! :P

I have to say Im a huge fan of both winter and summer.

Winter as I am a HUGE Senators hockey fan and seaosn ticket holder ;) and summer for boating and wakeboarding!!!

BerryWeather is a fantastic app, sign me up! ;)

I like fall the most because I love the slight cool in the air. I like the heat of summer the least because it's just too hot.

I'm not sure what my favorite of least favorite season is. Honestly I'm glad I live in an area that thoroughly experiences all the seasons differences.

My favourite season is spring, because it has the perfect weather, not as hot as summer and not as cold as winter. Just the perfect temperature for a swimming pool!

My favourite season is spring, because it has the perfect weather, not as hot as summer and not as cold as winter. Just the perfect temperature for a swimming pool!

I really need this app. I check the weather and the radar like I have ocd. Im running the weather bug know and since I transferred over to my storm 2 it seems the bugs just keep crawling out! Would love to try something new. Send in the exterminators and let me show them the way weather was meant to be monitored.

Fav season summer, i live nearby the beach so i can go when i want speacially if there's a shinning sun :) i'd love to have berryweather!

My favorite season has got to be Spring. It's warm enough to fishing, running, or camping.

My least favorite season is Summer. I know that's the time for beach-hopping, but living in Louisiana makes summer the time of death by humidity.

A copy of BerryWeather sure would come in handy for planning fishing trips!

wish i could have participated in the beta...I am one of them cheap people that look for free too many bills...anyways, cool looking and usefull app...

I love winter for the snowboarding, snowmobiling, snow, jackets and hoodies to store all my gear in, and cause I love the cold.

...which is why I would love to use this app to know when the next snowfall will be! Thanks for the opportunity CB!

As I stare out of the window to my left, the rain beats down hard and the wind howls through our old windows. We have 4 chihuahuas in our house, all of whom refused to take a dump in the rain this morning. It is now a race against time. Which will come first? The end of the rain and a trip outside? Or a chihuahua skulking off into a corner of the room to drop a crafty one?... Ugh, I hate rainy days!

For me its Spring, symbolizes a new start. The weather is not that cold nor hot, its just perfect! You can go out and can smell new leaves and grass and flowers blossoming.

Please pick me - I don't think I can take another Southern California "storm watch" 2010 on our local news station.

Leaves change colour. Thanksgiving, Halloween and football, hockey, basketball and baseball all going on at the same time.

I have been using the free version and really like it. I would love to win one of the fully functional ones.

I love my winters. I love the snow, sad thing is we just don't get enough over here in good ole blighty!

From Kids #1&2 band performances, to Kid #3's baseball practices and games, Kid #4's cub scout outings, and kid #5's karate we always consult BerryWeather on our his and hers Tour's. Best weather app ever on the Blackberry!! Five Stars. Can't wait for the new version.

Pick Me! Please....
Favorite season is spring. Least used to be winter when I lived in the Midwest, now that I am in a warm climate, I like 'em all!

Hopefully this will work on my new 8530. My parents both have the old version on their tour's and I would love to have the new one.

Fall is my favorite season thanks to Hokie Football!

We are battening down the hatches for a "crippling" snow event and I need the lastest and greatest info (for the next storm when prizes are awarded).

The transition from too hot to cool is invigorating. I like to see the change of seasons, with the leaves gaining color and then falling,

i work for a cable company as a network tech.
I hate the summer, not because of the heat, but for the thunder storms. lighting ,rain, not a good mix for cable.

The season I love the most is spring although it is the most miserable on my allergies. Every day in april I mark the calendar when it rains... (april showers bring may flowers) and living in Northern Jersey, April sure does rain.
I continue to try all sorts of weather applications because its something I rely on. Between NYC and where I work the weather is often very different and temperature often drastic.
I would enjoy a free weather APP

Here in tropics we only have 2 seasons winter wich means it'll rain all day and summer. My favorite of course is summer no rain; you eventually get used to the heat and if not we head out to the beach, its only a 40 min drive.

Please pick me! My favourite season is summer. I work outside so it's much easier to get up in the morning knowing its going to be warm outside. The only good thing about winter is hockey season. Go Canucks go! :)

I grew up in the south so of course my favorite season was summer. We never got any snow in the winter so everybody did everything they could in the summer. I recently moved to Alaska where there is quite a bit of snow. Since it hardly ever gets above 70 in the summer, I have switched my favorite season to winter.

would love to have this for my phone, since the weather changes so much around here, and its great to have when looking for days to golf in the summer.

Here in Cali the best weather here for me is summer. Sunshine, great lakes & being outdoors is where I'd rather be.

I would love to have the update for this app. My favorite season is Spring and Summer. Spring time because the winter is over and Summer time because it nice and warm.

My favourite season would have to be winter, although this year in Toronto there's a lack of it! But when it or if it ever arrives atleast Berryweather will let me know first ;)

Fall is my favorite season. New England leaves, the arrival of the great pumpkin at the Topfield's Fair (oldest in the country), turkey and cranberry sauce. Need free BerryWeather because the weather changes every five minutes around here.

My favorite season would have to be spring in Las Vegas. The temperature is just right and we even see a little bit of rain! The worst is summer; when I can cook an egg on my car, it is too hot.

The Summer thunderstorms in SW Ontario are absolutely fantastic. We have amazing lightning, and knowing when to expect them at anytime would be fantastic! :)

Winter to me is the worst due to all the snow. I hate driving in it. I hate that it gets my truck all dirty. It causes accidents (well the others drivers do it but only cause they have to prove what GREAT snow drivers they are- NOT) Yea winter bites

Summer is my favorite season. The weather's great, girls wear less, and the days are long. Doesn't get any better.

I always want to have this BerryWeather on my blackberry. When come to raining season, i want to check out outside weather when iam indoor.

Currently using bb weather free version on my Bold 9700, and I absolutely love it. Can't wait to see what the full version offers. Let's win!!!

Winter sucks! i hate that I can't go outdoors and so the usual things I do in the summer. Also, you always have to wear a jacket and you can never really predict how cold it is. Also, its hard to play sports outside with all the wind and with the cold.

I run everyday and its a pain not being able to feel my hands when i run in the cold.

So all in all, winter sucks!

Bberry weather please!

Ever. This is a must win!! I used the beta and it is amazing. A true preview for what the blackberry is capable of.

I would love a copy, Have had weatherbug for a long time but recently switched phones. Time to reweather my storm !

Winter is my least favorite season. Weight gain, unfulfilled New Years resolutions, cabin fever, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), the lack of Vitamin D, low Calcium levels, weaker bones and muscles... Yep doesn't get much worse than that for a season. Once Christmas hits and ends, I'm ready for Spring/Summer. This app would be great to have b/c Northeast Ohio lake effect snow is terrible. Comes out of no where, and hits hard. Would love to have this app on my Bold.

Summer is the best. Swimming, Basketball, outdoor sports, and heading out to the lake/beach for some fun in the sun.

Winter for me also, being a typical Canadian its all about Hockey and some curling and I love the cold weather :) Since i'm crazy enough to have my window open during the winter.

Spring is my favorite season because the weather is not to hot and not to cold. I do not like winter only because of all the ice and snow.

I hate winter because it has christmas in it and I hate christmas, and what are my real chances of winning this thing... none!

If I don't win a free copy then I'll be purchasing one. I like having the homescreen showing me updates almost as soon as it happens outside.

sunny days in michigan are my favorite
yet living all 4 seasons is an unpredictable treat
please give me a bbweather so i can predict
and after receiving this free i am going to tweet!



Yes, I would love this app. It is the best I have ever seen or used.
I grew up in New England so blizzards are no problem. When they were to come was another issue that BerryWeather would have helped back then.
I now live in the South where summer get's well above 100 and we just has school canceled for a whopping 2 days due to some ice on the ground.
Favorite season(s) are Spring and Summer for Baseball. I love going to Boston, Ma for some Fenway action. However, what to wear for the game? Will it be shorts and a t0shirt or 2 sweaters and a coat, hat and gloves.
BerryWeather tell me what it is going to do!

Would love to try this app.

Arizona really doesnt have seasons like everyone else. There is Summer (+115 degree days) and then 8 months of Fall/Spring.

All you snowbirds are hating me right now, aren't you?

BW saved me from the WeatherBug alerts during that insane cold snap Florida recently experienced. I wanted alerts on, but I found they were damn near impossible to clear quickly, and I was getting hit with multiple alerts every hour. BeWeather has better icon displays, is more accurate, looks better overall, is MUCH easier to use, and does not annoy the ?@#$?%^$!$!?! out of me.

I would love the full version. :D

Winter has to be my favorite season. Living in California where the weather is always nice, I enjoy the rain and cold weather every now and then.
