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.

Weather forecast data

All thanks to MET.NO (The Norwegian Meteorological Institute) for offering the weather forecast data. For a lot of European countries hourly forecast data is available, while for other countries 3 hourly data is available. 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.

    Does not work on my android 4.4.2. Refund policy is too much work.

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

    Please make it perfect: 1. For better readability, add bold separator line between days, with day name (3 letters) .2. tap on right side of widget switches between short and long term views. 3. tap on left side opens configuration window. 4. tap on center of widget launches pre-configured URL or app. Very nice work anyway, thanks!

    Love this widget and use it all the time. Could do with a key to explain the lines on graph are (maybe when you click) also a quick change to check out the weather for another location quickly.
