The app: the weather at a glance on your home screen

Meteogram widget is a unique app because it shows 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 meteogram. Doing so gives the user a much better idea of when exactly rain will fall, the sun will be shining, when it will become cloudy...

The main focus of the app consists in showing the meteogram on a small home screen widget (e.g. a 4X1 widget). Even while the widget does not occupy that much space on the home screen, it still manages showing 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 meteogram shows the temperature and expected precipitation for the whole forecast period. Besides those typical weather elements, the wind speed, wind direction and air pressure can also be visualized. The user has all freedom to determine how the meteogram should look like: a great set of configuration settings allows the user to customize the widget completely to his own needs.

For the long term forecast period, one of the best weather models - ECMWF - is used.

NOTE: for locations in the United States, NOAA is also offered as short term weather provider.

Great widget Perfect including week forecast. Layout could be even better by using screen space more effectively.

Great but.. Force closes when traveling ie when auto changing weather location. Would be better if temperature and wind speed text was centered on gridlines insted of above, confusing somethimes. And wind directions was arrows underneath insted of a line, hard to read at a glance. And wind speed values was to the right of the diagram insted of inside of it, obscuring some of it. Lastly it would be less confusing to change the weather icons containing suns to moons or stary skies during all times when sun is not up.
