    I put the weather app on the home page.. I noticed that when it's predicting rain or rain/snow mix a windshield wiper goes across the screen like it's wiping off my Eris screen.

    I just thought that was cool. Post cool stuff that surprised you about the Eris. :cool: :D

    [edit] By the way, by "weather app on the home page" I mean that I have only the weather app there, nothing else; it covers the whole screen, which surprised me when I first tried it out.. I thought it'd be only a temporary experiment, but I think I'll leave it there.. it has a little "update" bar at the bottom of the widget.

    I just showed off that nifty function to a friend last night. Must be raining throughout the country. All of our wind shield wipers are going.

    My friend just got a Moto Droid and she texted me last night with a smiley and I didn't realize that they are all customized android robots. Now when I use them, my friends will know I'm not using a crappy BB like they are.

    But the Droid smilies only come up on other Droids, don't they? My wife has a Samsung non-droid and all she sees is the text ":)" etc..

    On the HD2 the rain actually falls on the screen and rolls down over the icons when you just have the clock/weather widget on. It also frosts the screen when it is cold and has leaves blowing by on windy days. It is really cool to see. I hope they add this in to 2.0.

    Take a look

    Don't brag. :p


    I think that only works on Android phones, so your BB buddies won't see it.

    Not that I go for that sort of stuff, but I have a feeling he would be pretty lonely with that thing. None of the girls I know would touch it. And I'm not talking about the ones on my team either. :p

    I wish we could get some snow. We hardly ever get any and when we do it either doesn't stick or just turns to ice.

    Northern Virginia is looking at 16-24". Should be fun! But to go along with the thread, i just picked up Weatherbug elite $1.99 in the market. It is fantastic! I especially like the animated radar screen. It is by far the best I have found for weather and it updates every 15 minutes. Who knows, they may make it with shorter update times in later releases. There is a free version as well with Ads. (I hate ads... JMO. lol!)
