WeatherBug Mobile now with J2ME version
WeatherBug is introducing the WeatherBug Mobile for Java (J2ME) through Sprint in the USA. The software allows streaming of neighborhood level weather available via Java-enabled mobile handsets.

The company has previously released a Windows Mobile Smartphone version of this software.

Leveraging its network of 8,000 WeatherBug tracking stations throughout the USA, WeatherBug Mobile offers precise, customizable reports, including current weather conditions, local radar, live camera views and forecast updates.

"A recent AP poll indicated that most Americans closely monitor weather reports but find them unreliable. People want reliable weather conditions for their specific location and want to be able to view them as they go about their day, depending on where they are," said Andy Jedynak, Sr. Vice President and General Manager, WeatherBug. "Unlike all other weather reports, which are based upon hourly data from local airports, WeatherBug offers continuously updated live weather information at your fingertips, when it matters most."

The software allows customers to personalize their weather reports by designating the specific WeatherBug Tracking Station closest to them, at any time during the day, including camera imagery from one of 1,000+ weather cameras. Another personal touch is the WeatherBug personalized photo option, which enables users to submit and view other user photos within the WeatherBug community.

WeatherBug Mobile also offers live local radar, 7-day and weekend forecasts. Current conditions feature: temperature, heat index, average wind, humidity, dew point, barometric pressure, monthly rainfall, sunrise and sunset.
