Meteogram Weather Widget – Donate version
Benny Wydooghe Version
August 18, 2019 Requirements
4.0 and up
Mammogram Weather Widget is a weather app showing the weather in a very detailed way at a glance on your home screen. While a lot of weather apps are showing the weather forecast in a rather basic way, this app does that by visualizing the forecast in a so-called mammogram. Doing so shows you a much better overview of when exactly rain will fall, the sun will be shining, when it will become cloudy…
The focus of the app consists of showing the mammogram on a small home screen widget (e.g. a 4×1 widget). Even while the widget does not occupy that much space on the home screen, it still manages to show the forecast in a very clear way. Simply add a widget on your home screen, specify your location (or let the widget automatically determine your location) and the weather forecast appears on your home screen.
The meteor shows the temperature and expected precipitation for the complete forecast period. Besides those weather elements, the wind speed, wind direction, and air pressure can also be visualized on the mammogram. The user has all the freedom to customize how the mammogram should look like.
