Weather Personal Widget


This widget displays the information from a personal weather station.
This is NOT an application. This is a widget. You need to add it to your home screen after installing it.

To use it, your need a personal weather station and a program like Weather Display on a PC to generate the file clientraw.txt and upload it to a web server.


The widget supports 2 types of file: clientraw.txt and yowindow.xml.

Click the temperature in the upper left corner to configure, click anywhere else to update the display.

Configurable:
-Temperature units (Celsius or Fahrenheit)
-Wind speed units (kts, m/s, km/h, mph)
-Barometer(hPa, in/hg)
-Rain (mm, in)
-Background/Text color and transparency
-Display of an icon for the forecast/current conditions
-Auto-update when the device is unlocked
-Periodic update
-URL of the file to download

The URL must me a full internet address like http://www.server.com/clientraw.txt

You can activate a periodic update. It will download only when the screen is ON.
You can configure alternate URL and period to use when the phone is connected to a WIFI network.

The small chart behind the temperature is the temperature in the last hour. The limits of the graphic are the hi/lo temperature of the day.

Works just fine Don't know what people are moaning about, it only takes half a brain to set this up correctly. Been running it now for a couple of years with no problems at all. Those that snarl "Uninstalling immediately" need to be a little more polite to the developer of the app, considering how much you paid for it...
