If you fancy keeping an eye on the current weather conditions on your BlackBerry home screen then the Weather Clock Widget maybe just what you are after. There are free and premium versions available (premium costing $1.99) but as far as I can tell the only difference with the paid version is that you can change the theme - the style of clock widget.

As you will see from the screenshots below there are some nice themes on offer and if you have ever owned an HTC Android device you may notice the resemblance between the weather widgets and the HTC Sense one. That's not necessarily a bad thing though as the HTC Sense widget is beautiful. Actually touching or clicking on the widget doesn't do anything, such as open up a weather app - it is purely there to show you the time and current conditions. The only real downside I found with the app is that as it takes up so much screen space you are limited on what you can have as your BlackBerry wallpaper. If you like to have pretty pictures to look at then the widget will not be your cup of tea, but if the weather is important to you I am sure you will love it.


The refresh times can be altered between 15 minutes and two hours but it is worth bearing in mind that the more often it updates the greater your battery drain rate will be.


Features of the application include:

  • Displays the accurate and localized weather information
  • Displays current device time
  • Turn any Picture into landscape
  • Easy to Customize
  • Easily switch from Celcius to Farenheit
  • Shows Minimum and maximum temperature of the day
