About this app

Meteogram Weather Widget is a weather app showing the weather in a very detailed way at a glance on your home screen. While many weather apps are showing the weather forecast in a rather basic way, this app does that by visualizing the forecast in a so-called meteogram. Doing so shows you a much better overview of when exactly rain will fall, the sun will be shining, when it will become cloudy...


The main focus of the app consists in showing the meteogram on a small home screen widget (e.g. a 4X1 widget). Even while the widget does not occupy that much space on the home screen, it still manages showing the forecast in a clear way. Simply add a widget on your home screen, specify your location (or let the widget automatically determine your location) and the weather forecast appears on your home screen.


The meteogram shows the temperature and expected precipitation for the complete forecast period. Besides those weather elements, the wind speed, wind direction and air pressure can also be visualized on the meteogram. The user has all freedom to customize how the meteogram should look like.


Feature overview:


• Temperature, precipitation, wind and pressure
• Cloudiness / clearness indication
• Short-term forecast (next 24 or 48 hours)
• Short-term forecast for the next 5 days
• Fully customizable: colors, graph settings, ...

A "donate" version of the app adds below features:

• Widget providing a long-term forecast (next 10 days)
• Show humidity percentage
• Show sunrise and sunset
• Better (temperature) graph visualization (f.e. color the graph in blue when the temperature falls below freezing, custom line thickness and style, ...)
• Show moon phase
• Show wind chill
• Feature allowing you to save current settings as default settings
• Enable (paid) weather provider(s) (as in-app subscription)
• For the United States only: NOAA as weather provider


About the weather forecast data

All thanks to MET.NO (The Norwegian Meteorological Institute) for offering the weather forecast data (notice that for the long-term forecast period, one of the best weather models - ECMWF - is used by MET.NO).

For locations in the United States, NOAA is offered as short term weather provider.

NOTE: additional weather providers can be enabled by an in-app subscription.

• The app is optimized for use on smartphones.

This is the one indispensable app on my phone! I'd like to share my recent experience about the app not updating and not reacting. It was all down to my Galaxy Note 8's power saving settings. If you exit any power saving mode, the app will work perfectly for you. Hope it helps.

Thank you! True; battery saving apps (or built-in) can harm the update frequency of widgets. Thanks for sharing this.

I don't understand the color mapping. A lot of colored lines are plotted on the screen but there is no documentation on what each line is. Also the Italian translation is not intelligible. -- EDIT -- Thanks for your answer. I spent some time in the config menu, now I understand the layout. The main obstacles to a clear understanding were: 1. small 5" display that doesn't show the full explanatory text of each config option due to hidden line overflow; 2. bad machine-translated Italian, which is generally longer and more verbose than English. Minor obstacle were: 1. the lack of the unit of measure on the right side of the plot, referring to wind speed, m/s; 2. the color of the plotted lines changes when they overlap the area chart.

EDIT: Issue 1.) OK, will examine. Should not hide when text is too long, and regarding 2.) yes, I know; only solution is dropping Italian support (good translations are difficult to maintain). Regarding the minor obstacles: 1.) OK, but I only have that much space as your home screen allows, 2) Screenshot please (info@meteogramwidget.com).

This app works perfectly for me. I can see everything I want at a glance. It's brilliant. I'm in Cape Town and all the forecasts are spot on. Just fiddle around with the settings until you get what you want. *Dev feedback - Perhaps you can highlight the Save Settings part a bit better, it's easy to forget/miss after you've just spent 10mins setting it up and then you lose everything. :)
