    What is 'Navbar Weather'?

    It's weather app that shows forecast in unique way - on navigation bar via eg. chart. So to use it you obviously have to have navigation bar in your smartphone.

    How does it work?

    I've been using Huawei Mate 9 for over a year now. It always pissed me off that I had to put a widget on the home screen to check the weather forecast. But hey, why not use navigation bar for the weather forecast? So I decided to develop some small app for my Mate 9, that can show weather chart for next 5 days (in 3 hours intervals) on Navbar. It's still in beta stage (please report me abut any bugs or new ideas in this thread before you rate it). It works pretty good for me, but for sure I know that there is a lot work to do.

    So far Navbar Weather was tested only on my Mate 9, but it should work also on any other smartphone with Navigation Bar.
