5 Android weather widgets

If you are humming “Oh, the weather outside is frightful” when you wake up in the morning, then probably your first action is to grab the smartphone and look at the weather widget on your homescreen. Same if you plan to go surfing, skiing, or simply hike Shenandoah.


There is no shortage of those widgets in Android Market, but some are more functional than others, and some are more beautiful than the rest. We even have quite a few decked-up ones that can follow things like the earthquakes and geomagnetic storms situation, and alert you in the notification bar.


Choice is what matters, so we round up a few of those nifty little weather helpers to help you choose if you just got an Android phone, or even if you've never thought of using a weather widget before. Click on the slide show section titles on the right to go to Android Market for the respective widget, or to GetJar for the Beautiful Widgets freebie, and take them for a spin.

What I was expecting, was the weather analog clock from the article thumbnail. Except Beautiful widgets(Premium), none of these are really eye catching or functional. BW premium can be downloaded for free from GetJar store. Forgot to mention, BW even comes with two live wallpapers, and cool weather animations.

I have Beautiful Widgets, and it has worked well for me. It also features a bunch of toggle widgets for common settings.

Never got the point of weather apps, if you want to see the weather just look out of the window

its also tells you about the weather in the next few hours...were i live in the uk where its sunny 1 hour and the next its raining a weather widget or app helps a lot....its like saying whats the point of having a watch if you have a phone as that tells you the time all ready.
