BlackBerry Weather, Calculator and Compass updated in BlackBerry World

It's not really often core apps get updated on BlackBerry 10 but every now and then BlackBerry decides to push some changes into BlackBerry World without waiting for the need of a new OS. Such is the case with BlackBerry Weather along with the Compass app today. Both have been updated with 'improvements, UI changes and bug fixes' and are currently available in BlackBerry World, right now. There's certainly no rush to get them downloaded but if you happen to be perusing BlackBerry World, you might as well. Keep in mind, the updates might be limited via device and OS as it seems only those on 10.3, either officially or unofficially, are seeing them as available.

Update - The BlackBerry Calculator has also been updated for you folk that like to use it

BlackBerry 10.3

With any new release of an operating system it's the big new features that normally get all the attention and that's perfectly understandable. However, it's also the little improvements that help the whole experience and BlackBerry 10.3 has plenty of those.

A short while back we threw a poll out that asked are you still using WhatsApp now that BBM is on all major mobile platforms? As I stated then, I'm not a massive fan of the app, although it does work seamlessly on BlackBerry 10, however I continue to use it as I have a few buddies that use it on their iPhones.
