If you’re someone who commutes a lot, whether it be for work or school, knowing the weather for the day is useful if you need to know how to dress, whether or not to bring an umbrella, or if it might be too hot for you to bother with outdoor activities, and so on.
Thankfully, these days we don’t need to fully rely on the new channels to know the weather of the day as there are apps that do a great job, if not better, of informing us of the weather today.
Launching these apps throughout the day can be a bit troublesome and annoying, especially if you just need a quick glance at the information, and that’s where weather widgets can come in handy.
By placing a weather widget on your home screen, you’ll be able to see all the necessary information at a glance, and if you need more details, you can always opt to launch the app, so here are some of the best calendar widgets for Android that we’ve found.
If you’re a fan of colorful widgets that offer up a clean and simple look to them, then Today Weather might fit that bill perfectly. The app offers users a ton of different styles of widgets that they can use, so whether you just need to know the current temperature, know the humidity, or if you want the entire week’s forecast, those are all options that you can choose from.
This app has been around for quite a while now and based on the reviews the app has received in the Play Store, it seems that many are pretty pleased with what the app has to offer. There is support for widgets where you can customize the look so that it can even display a background image that reflects the current weather conditions.
Perhaps one of the oldest and most reliable weather apps around, it’s hard to go wrong with Yahoo Weather. The platform has been a popular choice amongst iOS and Android users for quite a while now, and similar to other apps and widgets, it also offers users photos to match the current weather, plus it can also pull beautiful photographs from all around the world.
Along with Yahoo Weather, AccuWeather is another staple when it comes to weather apps and widgets. It provides users with weather information, air quality information, and can even alert users to changes in the weather, and there’s even a Wear OS companion app if you need to glance down at your watch. It also offers widgets in varying sizes so you should be able to find one that fits your home screen and theme that you’re trying to create.
If you prefer more whimsical themes and looks to your weather apps and widgets, Awesome weather YoWindow could be what the doctor ordered. Featuring cute and drawings to illustrate the various cities/countries around the world, it not only offers a weather widget, but also a clock widget that can show you weekly weather forecasts and more.
While some apps and widgets might be more powerful and feature rich than others, the design does leave something to be desired. If you want more options to choose from when it comes to widgets, Appy Weather offers quite a few different styles for you to choose from. Whether you want something more detailed with added commentary, a progression bar, or simply a nice clean clock and weather widget to sit atop your home screen, those are some of the many options to choose from.
If you’ve been around smartphones long enough, there’s a good chance you’ve come across Carrot apps. These are apps that usually feature a sassy-talking assistant that will deliver information in a less robotic/sterile manner. Carrot Weather is no different where it will be able to provide you with weather forecasts and snarky commentary, with clean and simple widgets that have more than enough information that you can see at a glance.
