    Beautiful Widgets was updated today and the new weather animations load much much faster now. Easily number one now

    Read somewhere else that this app/widget will use your GPS to locate, but you can change this in the app settings.

    I find Animated Weather generally gets the weather wrong (showed as raining on a 36 degree, clear day), has problems with the date (started showing weather for April and wouldn't show today until the location was reset) and shows the moon during the day and sun at night.

    Just purchased Beautiful Widgets after the recommendations here. :)

    Beautiful Widgets is also skinnable. In fact, Weather Widget STOLE a LOT of skins from Beautiful Widget. So obvious and egregious, it was sickening. WW was hurting for users while BW was smoking them. So, they up and stole skins. I would NOT endorse WW for anything. They're crooks, and from what I've read in their feedback and in other forums, their widget is buggy.

    BW is by far the better widget. It's got skins, got great animation, is updated regularly and is about to release compatibility to Honeycomb tablets. Nothing beats BW. I have no connection to the developer (I think he's in France), but he's been really good about updates. I remember when I was using Touiteur (before I uninstalled it), he was really quick about bringing updates and features. I can't say that about WW, again, as I've heard, nagging lengths of time before updates (and that's if he updates at all).

    I like the Retro Clock widget for time and date... they look like those old flip-type clocks of the 70's.

    Weatherbug Elite ($2-3) has been a great weather service for me as a scuba diver keeping track of multiple dive destinations. It has been very accurate.

    Check out the "TikTokVu" clock widget on the market.
    It displays the time in a different and sophisticated way.

    Just got BWW, and I have to say, I love it. I really like the beautiful super clock... I like the beautiful home also, but parts of it blend in with my background. Currently looking for a way to put a small border around the text so that I can use home instead of super clock

    Is it possible to have a weather view that occupies one of my scrollable screens? I use the Go Launcher EX. It seems when the weather widget is up I can't flip to another screen. I have the google search and calendar on one screen and it let's me flip to new screens. I am running 2.3.4 on an Evo 4G.

    Thanks!

    Hey everyone,

    Does anyone know of a good weather widget that does not have a clock attached to it?

    I love the new HTC weather widget, but I like to use LPP+ launcher and not sense, but that widget is not available unless you are running sense.

    I'm looking for a full screen widget with no clock - does anyone know of any?

    PS - I'm on a Thunderbolt running Bamf

    BeWeather can be set with or without a clock ;) IMO it is the best weather app to date.

    Is there a weather (with or without clock) widget where the widget itself is animated? I do not mind paying for it if need be but everyone I found does not animate till you click on it and go into the program. I've tried the free versions of a few of the ones mentioned but most of them are locked up and I do not want to purchase them only to find they don't do what I want. Also aware of the ones that make the live wallpaper show the actual weather. Not looking for that either. Thanks again.

    Check out Elecont "Weather, Clock, Radar, Alerts, Quakes, ...". I tried a few weather apps and this one had most of the additional "stuff" I was looking for: Clock, Precip, Moon phase, Earthquakes, Geo-storms, etc. It's also got a few widgets included.

    Haven't been using it long so can't speak to its' stability, although so far it's been good. Based on the available settings, the developer seems pretty thorough.

    Hi, Just got my Samsung Galaxy SII after 4 years with original iphone.

    I want a weather app (FREE) that just shows the australian temperature and a pic of sunshine, rain etc.

    There are over a 100 to choose from, any suggestions?:thinking:

    Does anyone know a widget, that updates weather per location, as phone moves?

    I had a best ever weather widget "Weather and clock 3D", built into my old ViewSonic v350 (dual sim), but I'm not able to locate this widget apart.
    It has beautiful 3D animation of both, clock and weather, updates location automatically, possible to add new locations manually - basically it's all there.
    Anyone knows where to get the APK? :cool:

    Interesting that 5 people (or maybe just one with different Id's, and each with only 2 posts to their name.....hmmmm) have used these exact same words to cast their vote for AW. Maybe you guys should get together and pay for a banner ad!! LOL!

    Read the reviews before downloading Animated Weather for Android - apparently it gets great votes for its visual appeal.....too bad the clock can't keep time and the weather isn't up-to-date. Oh, but other than that, it's GREAT!

    I like the look of Fancy Widgets, a lot like the stock HTC Clock/Weather widget except that unlike the HTC widget, it doesn't include any built-in alarms function.

    Beautiful is pretty nice, but I have to say for my vote BeWeather is the best. Why? - great look/feel, excellent animations, built in alarm function, very customizable (font, color of text, clock style, type of widget (Weather, weather with clock, weather with forecast), transparency, etc.). Also shows sun/moon, as well as daily and hourly forecast.

    For those that were asking for a widget that just had weather and no clock, BeWeather can do that too.

    Fancy Widgets does have an alarm clock function. When you tap on different parts of the widget, you get a different function.
