The Weather Network shows off its BlackBerry 10 app
posted by Alan F. / Jan 28, 2013, 1:00 PM
The new Weather Network app for BlackBerry 10 will use the phone's GPS to produce a local forecast for your current location within 1 kilometer of where you are standing. A peek feature lets you quickly switch from watching information about a damaging storm to your local forecast with ease. BlackBerry 10 users will be to upload weather related photos directly to The Weather Network. Forecasts include current, short-term, long-term (day and night), 14 day trend (day and night) and hourly forecasts for user’s favorite locations and multiple locations can be tracked. Weather alerts and safety bulletins (think tornado alerts) will be sent straight to BlackBerry 10 handsets and the app can be shared with friends using BBM.

A step ahead LMFAO....all I see is last years technology. This may be a step ahead of iOS but this couldn't even hold a candle to Android.

Reading a lot of the comments here on Phonearena, I'm reminded of a family gathering during the holidays. The little children get put at their own table away from all the grownups, except in this case, there doesn't seem to be another table, and all the children have been allowed to have "conversations" with the adults and sit at the same table. Anyways, BB10 is very intriguing and I am definitely excited to see what new things RIM brings to the table in a couple of days.

I am genuinely excited to see BB10 in action. Between WP 8, the next Android version (Key Lime Pie??), and BB10, I am very happy to be able to see what come later in 2012 when my contract is up. The next group of Nokia offerings, the GS4, the full line of BlackBerries... Ahh, great to be a consumer....
