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.
