WARNING: App renewed. New weather data provider (Previmeteo). BETA* version but 100% functional.
El Tiempo (The Weather): Useful and user-friendly widget with the following features:
English version. You can find the Spanish version (“El Tiempo”) in Market.
6 different formats showing weather info and available in different sizes (see screenshots).
Multilingual widget. The widget can be in Spanish, English (UK), English (USA) or French.
If “en” language selected (English – USA) the temperature will automatically be shown in Fahrenheit unit.
It shows information regarding the location’s current weather conditions and also with 4 days forecast, altitude, wind (direction and speed), humidity, date/time, sunrise, sunset,…
It allows you to zone in to your current location and displays the above-mentioned information. Also it refreshes the location with the frequency (in hours) that you have configured. You can set the wished frequency, even “0”, that means that you prefer manual update. You can manually update your widgets one by one or all at the same time.
The targeted location can be shown on a map.
The Weather icons will be displayed in either night or daytime mode depending on the location’s time zone.
You can even create your own skins (your own icons). The software includes a default skin and 3 simple examples can also be downloaded.
The properties widget (language, update frequency, etc…) can be edited whenever you wish with only one touch on the widget.
Please, note that you may avoid the automatic update of your widget(s) if you clear the device RAM memory from the Android Task Admin in order to free memory. It wouldn´t be any error, but a logic issue.
*Initially no weather data may be retrieved if the location had a population less than 15.000 people. Also the server that provides the weahter info may not response to a huge number of requests from devices in order to update the weather.
