  • 'LiveWeatherIcon' Makes the iOS 7 Weather Application Icon Show Live Weather Information

    With iOS 7, Apple finally made it so that the Clock application icon would show the live time, but they left out the Weather application, which is very helpful to have live information to as well.

    A new jailbreak tweak dubbed LiveWeatherIcon by iOS developer Hamza Sood will make the iOS 7 Weather application icon show live weather information. This includes not only the real temperature outside, but also the weather conditions, such as if it's cloudy, snowing, or storming outside. The application icon is also animated, and changes to match the animations within the application:

    This tweak is a really nice addition to any iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 7, as the iPad doesn't even have a Weather application. At this point in time, the tweak only works for Apple's stock Weather application, but the developer has plans to let the user pick a third-party App Store weather application as the application icon that will adopt this live weather icon functionality in a future update. This update will also let users choose to hide or show the weather condition text on the icon to clean up the clutter a little bit.

    To grab LiveWeatherIcon, make your way over to Cydia's BigBoss repository and there you will find the package for Just $1.00. The tweak will run on the iPhone 4s and later. The tweak has no options to configure.

      weather doesn't update unless you open the iOS water app.
      even if you choose a third party app to have it applied to.

      Anybody else?
