Weather with Google is new into BlackBerry App World this week and it's not just another ordinary weather application. It offers some nice additional features that you will not find in the native weather app on your BlackBerry PlayBook.
The application utilizes both Google Maps and The Weather Channel bringing you the following features:
- Weather View
- Traffic View
- Terrain View
- Photos View
The weather section of the app is pretty sweet. It allows you to search any location and view not only current conditions but forecast weather too. Perfect if you are planning a trip out and need to see if you require your umbrella. Although seeing these details are probably available in other weather apps this one allows for weather checking in numerous places within seconds.
If you are taking the car it makes sense to check the traffic too. With a simple tap of the traffic tab you can enable the feature and using Google Maps it will let you see in real time any traffic jams that are on your route. Clever stuff.
Priced at $1.99 the application offers pretty good value to money and is a real asset when planning a journey.
