[prMac.com] Oslo, Norway - Independent developer, Trond Rossvoll today is proud to announce the release of widget weather 1.0, his new weather widget for iOS 8 with multiple icon themes to provide a personal touch. With the arrival of iOS 8, 3rd party apps were finally granted access to add widgets or in Apple terms: extensions to the today menu. widget weather is among the first apps to utilize this feature.
widget weather provides weather forecast in a space effective manner by showing the current weather state and a relevant weather icon along with forecasted temperature and precipitation for 3-hour periods ahead in time.
Android users have for a long time been able to personalize their phone in a manner that even Apple fanboys have to be a bit jealous of. Now iOS users can add an extra bit of personal touch to their device other than changing background color/image. widget weather comes with different icon sets to chose from, and switching between them to find the one that fits your personal style is quick and easy. More icon sets will be integrated in the future, and users are encouraged to submit requests for their favorite icon sets to be added.
widget weather is all about choices and comes with two weather forecast services to choose from: OpenWeatherMap and met.no (the Norwegian Metrological Institute). Combined they cover just about any place on the planet and the user can choose whichever service they find to provide the best accuracy for their location. More information about the forecast services can be found at widget weather online or their own websites Open Weathermap and Met.
Providing weather forecast covering the entire planet widget weather is off course multilingual. The set up menus are available in 9 languages and the weather forecasts are available in a total of 20 languages combined for the two forecast services.
