The app: the weather at a glance on your home screen
Meteogram widget is a weather app showing the weather in a very detailed way at a glance on your home screen. While a lot of 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 gives the user a much better idea 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 very 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 whole forecast period. Besides those typical weather elements, the wind speed, wind direction and air pressure can also be visualized. The user has all freedom to determine how the meteogram should look like: a great set of configuration settings allows the user to customize the widget completely to his own needs.
• Temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind and pressure
• Cloudiness / clearness indication
• Short term forecast (next 24 or 48 hours)
• Short term forecast for the next 5 days
• Lots of user settings: colors, weather elements, ...
Not all features are available in the free version. Below is a summary of the features that are exclusively available in the donate version (Google Play Store: http://goo.gl/HbxHGx):
• Long term forecast (next 10 days)
• Meteogram overview (on tap)
• Show sunrise and sunset

Weather forecast data
All thanks to MET.NO (The Norwegian Meteorological Institute) for offering the weather forecast data. For a lot of European countries hourly forecast data is available, while for other countries 3 hourly data is available. For the long term forecast period, one of the best weather models - ECMWF - is used.

excellent widget. thank you!
Exactly what I need After phone startup, note 4, widget is sometimes all black and stuck on loading message. Dev is looking into it, great! Besides this minor glitch this is a top notch meteogram!
Not as good as meteogram weather The Meteogram Weather app (simplicus) is much better if all you want is a meteogram. Also highly recommended is Meteogram weather app & widget (cloud3squared). Those apps are much better than this one.
Uninstalling Love the lay out kinda.. Graphics are great .. Wind speed and direction not even close.. Have no idea where it collects this data.. The weather is always showing 3 hrs in advance thus ya really don't know the weather for 4 hrs out. Ex. At 7 it'll be updated in advance to 10 . so ya really only see what's to expect between 10 and 11 and there after.
Copy of AIX weather and unreliable AIX weather I've used for years. it's very light no ads and don't use much data. This is a simple copy of it, but it doesn't even use the whole space available for the widget, very thick borders are waste when the widget could be bigger and easier to read. Weather outside now is +3, but widget tells - 6.6! No point keep using.
ok but a little buggy I appreciate the dev response, but I'm still seeing problems. When creating new widget it sometimes gets stuck on loading message. Widget display doesn't always update after making settings changes, EVEN AFTER CLICKING THE SAVE BUTTON! I see this about half the time! Floating save and cancel buttons would be nice rather than having to remember to scroll to bottom, or maybe just an auto save when clicking back button? It would also be nice if the graph dimensions would automatically expand when using long tap and moving the widget edges to resize on home screen rather than having to change the widget settings.
Wonderful, with bug What I wanted. I really appreciate this widget. A must have. But it comes with a bug: every time I restart the phone (even if not often) the widget simply don't charge anymore, stays void. Thus, each time I have to eliminate and put it back. Annoying. Fix this please and tell me by mail, 'cause now I'm unistalling it.
Does not work with ART runtime Excellent widget. It has replaced aix weather on both my phone and tablets.
Superb weather widget I absolutely love this, couldn't imagine going back to any other weather forecast. Some of the features in the donate version like the day/night colouring are well worth paying for and Benny is always active in the Google+ group and is very open to ideas and suggestions.
Nearly Perfect As weather apps go, this is the only one I use. It is accurate, simple, clear, configurable, you name it. ART stable - using on Android 5.0.1 now, and ART enabled 4.4.4. Only issue I have, and it's nit-pickey, is that it doesn't handle resize on rotation well. No big deal. Awesome work, Dev!
could be amazing coming back after a year, u still cant see when a day starts on your chart, had to take extra 3 seconds to figure out where is daytime where is night time(during which the weather idc)
Very informative Good interface and decent configuration options. I like the hourly and daily forecasts. I just wish I could swap the low/high temperature on the daily forecasts.
Only one issue Pretty outstanding widget, full of information and very customisable. Only issue I have is that the time marks on the bottom axis do not seem to follow my local time zone.
Works on L Tested working on L Dev preview, the widget itself is EXACTLY what I want, quick at a glance information of how it'll be the rest of the day. Fantastic stuff!
Works great on the phone But has some problems on tablets.
Nice, although... ... it cloud utilize space much better for the 4x2 widget.
Problem with time zone...could be great...
good app This is a solid app. Really like the custom features available. The chat displays well. Only three thoughts: 1) have an option to choose a different weather provider 2) show a vertical line on the graph that indicates the current date an time. This would allow quicker orientation of current conditions in relation to the graph 3) have a unit conversion for altitude. Oh, is the y axis supposed to be the current time? I thought the graph showed a set period of time, I did not realize that the graph scrolled to keep up with the current time. For the altitude conversion from meters to feet, I figured it would go in the settings where you change the units of measure for everything else
Excellent app. Problem with time zone. Since I installed the app, the times on the x axis have been 5 hours off. Besides that small hitchup, the app is incredibly useful and easily readable.
I want to like it I want to like this, but the timescale doesn't deal with changing timezones well. I got this five hours off from where I live, and now that I've moved back, the timescale of the meteogram is still stuck in that time zone, and nothing I do (uninstall, clear data) seems to solve that. It knows what time is the right time, because it uses that time for when it last got the new forecast. This isn't a huge deal, but it's just enough to keep me from really wanting to use it.
Love it! But when set to "current location" it has a tendency to be hours behind and outdated. Using a specific location always works however.
Brilliant I rely on this most mornings.
Changing my review. The weather data seems to have corrected, now I'm seeing different weather data for different locations. But I observe another problem - the weather graph is showing for few hours from now, for ex: now it's 4pm, but I see meteogram graphs starting from 11pm. Also, the temperature shown is unreliable. Still the coolest weather widget out there.
Nice, needs humidity line Like the extra features compared to aix with the extra lines and current location, even though it doesn't look quite as polished by default. A humidity line would be wonderful - I don't see a lot of use for most of the lines except wind speed. An option for wind speed in km/h would also be nice.
Horribly inaccurate I love everything about this widget except for the fact that its data is continuously wrong. The temp and pressure values are always incorrect by several degrees, and sometimes off by tens of degrees...like today. Kinda defeats the purpose.
Good, but needs more/better sources I don't know what the current source for weather data is, but it frequently inaccurate. It would be better if there were options for which weather source was used and if more mainstream and major sources were included (eg AccuWeather, yahoo, etc.)
Neat Graph needs UI improvement to tell the three days apart from each other, and day from night.
Working after re boot Its different to most weather apps but not my thing
Great Just what I was looking for,and it works.
Lovely app. Lovely app, the widget works fine, once I realised that on my tablet I had to turn it to portrait to save an edited colour. Exactly the app I was looking for!
Very good Meteogram gives more complete information at a glance than loads of icons in usual weather app/widget. And it looks good. Occasional functional problem - once in a few days it spends long time in a "loading" state, retreving informaton that is not coming, as it seems. Sometimes I cast a look at a time of a last refresh, only to find out that more than a day has past. It is maybe a problem with info supplier being clogged. Another problem is just a grain of readibility lacking. If widget is strached to few pixels it has at disposal above and under it (4x1), it would be easier to read temp numbers etc. But it is really excellent widget. It combines meteogram for near future, and icons for period in which forecast is naturally less reliable. Really excellent combination of visual data presentation. Developer, thank You ... Thanks for the explanation. lack of memory could be the problem, since my phone is really lacking in that department... Best regards.
Actively developed... This widget is great at showing what the weather is doing over the course or 24hours in your location, great work Benny!
Better... than Aix, will see. AIX says its raining now, weather front doesn't arrive for another hour or so, which is what this widget indicates.
Almost perfect A complete translation would be great. Also when temperatures go under zero, then the colour red should be blue, right?
Detailed Looks nice, please add in unit conversion, I would really like to see this in Fahrenheit.
Almost perfect. Wind speed should have a km/h option. Also when using just current location, the start time does not make sense.
Bug report There is a bug: if I change location for the premium 7-day widget, the old weather data is still displayed with the new location. To make it reload the data I have to change the update interval once. Update time displays incorrect time zone. Nonetheless, the widget is quite good.
temp not right in australia on average out by 4 or 5 degrees
Good widget, but need several weather sources for choose. Current source shows incorrect temp.
Margins Widget is shown with no margins (i.e. black background is drawn from the leftmost to the rightmost pixel of the screen). Apex Launcher, CyanogenMod 11, Nexus 4.
. Large borders in widget. Use too many space. Aix weather is better in this case
Excellent! The best application for viewing weather! (I use DONATE version!) 5 stars is too little for such applications! 5 +++++! Very good! Many thanks to the developer! With each update the application is getting better and better! The highest level of evaluation! Excellent! :-)
Widget is not working, blacked out with the word Loading... Widget is blacked out with loading... in top left corner. Had been working fine for the past few days. Phone Restart or app force close does not fix problem. Samsung S6
Fantastic app. I've tried a few other meteograms and this is 99% excellent, and very accurate.
Benny got paid! As a rule, I do not purchase paid versions of apps. I am a utilitarian with thick Linux roots and tend to live the GPL lifestyle. That said, I am proud to support developers who I feel bring true utility to the table. This widget does just that and after serving me well over several years I am proud to support Benny's efforts via the donate version. Thank you, sir. Well deserved!
Have Donated, What's The Difference?? Hi, have started with the free version of said app. Paid for donate version, but can see no difference from free. Help!!
I can't change the colors on the widget. There is no option to save the colors of have chosen
Very nice Intuitive and to the point. Weather forecast with one look. I would only prefer a different way to read wind direction. Something with 'arrows' maybe.
Where are the barbs? Bring back the barbs. It's hard to tell what the wind speed is without them.
I love this widget! 5 stars! I have two recommendations and one gripe. It would be nice if you could scroll to the side to reveal more days and/or also if there was a 4x3 and 4x4 option. My gripe is I wish it showed the percentage of precipitation for each day instead of the amount in mm or in. I think those two things would make this the best weather widget ever.
Great Visual Summary Configurable and detailed. I love it!
Must have app
This review got cancelled accidentally, here it is again. ORIGINAL: Does what it says but it's a direct clone of Aix Weather which has been around for much longer. No added value for switching. DEVELOPER RESPONSE: Hi Shadi. Thanks for your review and it's a pity that you do not like the app (even while the app offers some features like extra weather forecast elements, and the Donate version offers even more things like notifications, a forecast overview, ...). Anyway, thanks for your review and perhaps I see you back.
Amazing Weather App This must be one of the best apps in regard to style, customization, functionality, and usefulness. I have heard it compared to Aix and I did try that widget to compare. To begin, Aix doesn't provide humidity or atmospheric pressure. Aix also doesn't allow the widget to be changed size-wise. So it forces it to be 1x4 instead of my much preferred 2x5 size that fits my entire screen. Customizing the color schemes and what information is present is a wonderful feature. Highly recommended app.
Looks good; but has a severe bug in that timelines appears to be out by 1hr (compared to official met) rendering it useless in Switzerland. If resolved then 5*
Excellent Metrogram app. Custom settings, clear presentation, minimal battery and CPU usage, plus reliable customer support. Stands out far above similar apps. Highly recommend.
Good widget, but I prefer Aix.
Upgraded to donate but neither work now Been using the free version for a good while and decided to try the donate version, except it didn't work. Removed both to reinstall the free version and now that doesn't work either. A bit annoyed as I've paid for an app that doesn't work when before it was fine.
Really good! Perfect but is there also a way to show which day it is? For example, when I choose the option to show more than 24 hours I'm not sure which day I'm currently on
Cool but cannot be placed on lock-screen unfortunately.
No lite version. Forces you to buy full package.
