Meteogram Weather Tides Widget App
by: cloud3squared • 745
This resizable weather widget (and interactive app) provides a detailed and visually appealing weather forecast, allowing you very quickly to understand what to expect when you venture outdoors. The graphical format is commonly referred to as a 'meteogram'.
You can choose to display as little or as much information as you like, or you can set up multiple widgets showing different information (optionally for different places) in different widgets.
You can plot common weather parameters like temperature, wind speed and pressure, as well as tide charts, UV Index, wave height, moon phase, sunrise and sunset times, and much much more!
The widget is fully resizable, so make it however small or large you like on your home screen! And the interactive app is just a click away, direct from the widget.
Furthermore, you can choose where your weather data comes from: the Norwegian Met Office (Meteorologisk Institutt), the German Met Office (Deutscher Wetterdienst or DWD), the Swedish Met Office (SMHI), the UK Met Office, or from one of several commercial weather forecast services.
We recommend that you give it a go and explore the wealth of weather, marine and astronomical information available!

Explanation of app permissions
The permission relating to "access to the device's storage" is only to enable the (very useful) feature which allows your settings to be backed up to a file, so that they can later be loaded back (or shared with others). Note that, from Android 6, this permission anyway needs to be granted at runtime, so if you never grant this permission when it is requested, the app will never have access to your device's storage.
Similarly, regarding the permission for the "device's location", this is only needed when you enable the "detect and follow location" feature, where the meteogram is always generated for your current location. Again, if you don't need this feature, then you don't ever need to grant this permission, and the app will never know your location.
The "draw over other apps" permission is only needed for technical reasons when local chart generation is enabled. By default, this is not enabled, so the permission is never needed. Furthermore, nothing is ever actually drawn over other apps. In any case, the permission can be disabled in the app's settings page.
