New "official" release of BBWeather, v0.83. There are two versions, one for OS 4.2 and above (without WiFi) and one for OS versions 4.3 and above (with WiFi). The OTA link should hopefully autodirect you to the correct download for your OS and the desktop install contains a folder for each version.

OTA
http://www.tateu.net/software/bb.php?f=BBWeather

Desktop Install
http://www.tateu.net/software/dl.php?f=BBWeatherDT

Also, there is an alpha version available which will always be updated with whatever version I am currently using/testing/debugging on my own device.

Yikes...Big bug in BBLight v1.93 that that caused any of the "Keep Backlight on" (User is Active, Out of Holster, External Power) options to fail. Not sure how I missed it. I was so intent on getting the phone ring/vibration and Calendar/Task notifications working that I just, plain missed this.

Anyway...v1.94 (OS v4.0 and above) available at the same links:

When I try to download the one without wifi ota it does not give me the option. It automatically tries to download the one with wifi, how do I get the one without??

Would love to try this app but can't seem to get there.

Thanks so much!!

For the alpha test releases, you can't. For the v0.83 OTA download, if your Blackberry internet browser is set to Blackberry emulation and you have an OS version less than v4.3 it is supposed to direct you to the non-wifi release and if your OS is v4.3 or above it directs you to the wifi download.

If it is not working for you, the best way would be to download and install with Desktop Manager.

I can't get the vibrate and ring feature to work on my storm. I've set the profiles to none, and bblight profile to on for vibrate...is this working for storm? Running .109

Thanks

I don't have a Storm to try it on, but while debugging it in the Storm simulator, incoming phone calls never trigger BBLight's vibrate notification. I'm not sure what's going on but it appears that RIM changed something in the Storm OS that broke my code.

bbweather 0.83 slows my bold to a crawl. Anyone else seeing this? It's also not showing in the application switcher. Tried reinstalling but it didn't help.

Nothing like that here...though I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "slows my bold to a crawl." And if it's not in the application switcher, that means it isn't running, which makes it unlikely that it could be slowing down your device.

By default, when you press the Escape key from inside BBWeather, it exits the application with System.exit(0). If you have "Enable HomeScreen Update" checked, before it exits, it will add itself to the system scheduler to run again in "Current & Homescreen Poll Interval (mins)." But for that "interval," it is completely closed and has no effect on your device's performance. When that "interval" has elapsed, the system scheduler will run BBWeather, which will download current conditions, update the homescreen icons, reschedule itself and exit.

If you want it left running in the background, choose "Close" from the menu or, in the options screen, set the action of the Escape key to "Close."

I have it set to close/minimize on escape on my 8900. However, I have noticed that when I check the application switcher, it's not there.

Hmm, just tried it setup like that on my Bold and it's there. Maybe there is something wrong with my code specifically for an 8900? I'll see about getting an 8900 simulator up and running in the next few days and check it out.

False alarm on the slowness. I think the device started re-indexing my music after the reboot to install bbweather. It finally sorted itself out.

Gotcha on the app switcher. I didn't realize the default was to exit.

Default BBlight 1.95 _Awesome upgrade!

Hey there,

Just wanted to say great thread and job at making this needed utility far more functional and versitile with the added options. I love it.

Now I don't have to fight with Google Maps or other unattended apps when I want the backlight to stay on.

* * * * *

Question: Does the option "except when clock is in the forground" apply only to the open home screen and today screen of any given theme?

BBLight is one of my favorite applications. It partially addresses my biggest complaint about the BlackBerry, which is the annoying behavior of the screen back light constantly turning off. For the Palm OS, there are applications that can extend the back light timer beyond the stingy 2 minute limit. 20 minutes seems about right for me.

Is it possible to add a timer extension function to BBLight? I looked at the source code, but Java really intimidates me.
