Rain - Hyperlocal Weather Forecasts by Bellshare GmbH

First up, this week is from a developer we are all familiar with. If you are ever looking to see what the weather is outside, there is BeWeather 10 Pro. Fresh out of beta is their latest offering called Rain. With only a quick glance, this application will let you know when it will rain up to an hour in advance. It comes with a variety of features in including the ability to provide minute-to-minute rain predictions for the next 60 minutes, as well as detailed forecasts for the following day and week, push notifications (it will send one just before it starts raining in your location), and it offers a pleasant and beautiful interface with which to display your weather. All of the information you need throughout the day will be shown on a single screen. There is even an option to switch from a light to a dark theme. However, please note that the 60-minute rain forecasts and notifications are only available in the US, UK, and Ireland. All other areas will receive basic hourly and weekly forecasts. You can find Rain for $4.99 in BlackBerry World. It is compatible with all BlackBerry 10 though not those running OS 10.2.1.
