The Weather Network and MétéoMédia had launched WeatherEye Mobile and TrafficEye Mobile, two free, 24/7 applications for mobile phone users. WeatherEye Mobile provides access to current weather conditions, short- and long-term forecasts and current weather warnings for thousands of cities in Canada and around the world, and TrafficEye Mobile lets users make the most of their travel time by offering real-time access to traffic information, road incidents, traffic flow maps and access to traffic camera images. Both services are being launched in English and French for BlackBerry users, with TrafficEye initially providing information on the Greater Toronto Area. "With the WeatherEye Mobile and TrafficEye Mobile downloads, users will have even more local relevant information at their fingertips – not to mention that they’ll be able to consult them on their phones without a monthly charge," said Mark Thompson, director of the mobile divisions for The Weather Network and MétéoMédia.
