BOM Watch

BOM Watch


Simple widget I wrote to display the temperature, wind speed, and direction for two weather stations in Melbourne.

I finally became sick enough of opening the browser to check the BOM readings before getting on my bike to go to work and come home again.

Recent changes:
Made the update interval user configurable.
Fixed a bug where network errors would stop widget updates.
Added a status line showing the last event time and result.

Simple and does the job reliably Provides BoM temp and wind info in a very small widget. Just needs to add some of the new weather stations.

Great widget Simple and effective. Any chance of adding the new Melbourne station 'Melbourne (Olympic Park)'? As it's taken over from the La Trobe St station.

Works great - any chance you can improve further by adding other BOM weather station locations?

No shortcut? Can't even open it via the app manager? No shortcut? Can't even open it via the app manager?

Just what I'm looking for Simple and tailor made for its purpose - if only I could use it for Adelaide station now that I've moved. Is other weather stations possible with update perhaps?
