Preview of Poynt upcoming gas and weather features


Poynt is probably the best LBS app for BlackBerry. Currently, the app lets you find local businesses, movies, restaurants, events and people. The app gives you the relevant information you’re looking for, and with driving directions, interactive maps and contact information, Poynt connects you with these places.

In the upcoming version of Poynt (weeks away!), the app will be adding gas and weather functionality. These features are really awesome and we have some pics of the features in action.

    The Weather Network theme for BlackBerry


    the weather network theme

    The Weather Network official theme has been launched on Bplay. The theme works in tandem with The Weather Network’s WeatherEye mobile application to install a permanent icon on the theme background itself that displays the current weather conditions. No one has done anything like this before.

    You can purchase the theme here.

    It costs $5.99.

    Viigo launches open beta


    The WES build of Project Tango has obviously undergone some work, and now we can try out the next beta of Viigo. Still no love for audio just yet, but we’re sure to see it in the coming weeks as bugs get fixed and features added. What is new, however, is a CFL channel, listing live scores and ticket purchasing via click-to-call for the sports fans out there. A lot of it was built off of the same power in the existing Sports channel, only a bit more focused. The Entertainment channel is packing Bplay goodies right now that link out to the mobile site to help you get your game on. The skeleton of a Stocks channel is there, giving us a glance at what to expect. A future version with graphs, trends and news all built in would be pretty sweet for any financiers out there. Weather and RSS are unchanged, but Sports got a few additions, like the Euro 2008 games that are entrancing footballers worldwide these days.

    The Weather Network releases WeatherEye and TrafficEye


    A snowstorm and some trafficThe Weather Network and French-speakering counterpart MétéoMédia have released WeatherEye Mobile and TrafficEye mobile, which do pretty much what you’d expect. WeatherEye offer current conditions as well as short-term and long-term forecast for cities in Canada and other locations. TrafficEye is currently only available for the Toronto area, but the two companies plan to expand the traffic maps, traffic camera images, and other features to more cities in Canada. Both apps are ad-supported and free, and available in English and French versions, so check ‘em out.

    Let your Pearl tell you the weather


    PearlCastThose apps that changed your Pearl’s trackball colour always seemed a bit useless to me, but fresh from the guys who made that the BlackBerry-finding software, is PearlCast. Basically, you can assign different trackball colours to different temperature ranges, so when PearlCast receives the latest weather forecast for a particular zip code, it will change the trackball colour. Pretty nifty, but it would be nice if you could change the temperature values, since the weather won’t change within 20 degrees too often. You can also set changes based on current conditions and one-day forecast. Thanks Stefano!
