Thread: [Review] Forecast - Show the Weather On Your Lock Screen

    Default [Review] Forecast - Show the Weather On Your Lock Screen


    If you are one of the many people thinking the iOS lock screen could be improved, then you would be correct. Some people enjoy the simplistic and clean user interface as it is when itís stock, however there are also many who enjoy adding things to it to reduce the effort necessary to get information on the fly. A new jailbreak tweak dubbed Forecast by iOS developer Stimpy5050 will add a weather widget to your iOS lock screen, similar but not identical to the Notification Center version.

    How does it differ? Unlike the Notification Center widget, Forecast displays the time and date in the widget. This is useful because it does replace the large clock dash from the lock screen. You can swipe side to side to switch between weekly or current weather views just like in Notification Center. It automatically uses your location to determine your local weather and you can refresh the weather manually using the refresh button under the temperature.

    Using the backbone of Appleís weather widget design, Forecast keeps good proportions on the lock screen. It looks like it was meant to be there and it is visually attractive just as it is functionally useful. This method of getting the weather widget on your lock screen is affordable (only 99Ę) and is more practical than using IntelliScreenX or Bulletin to get the entire Notification Center on the lock screen. The speed is exceptional, offering no noticeable lag to the end user.

    Forecast will automatically refresh the weather information every 15 minutes so you donít have to worry about it being too far off on accuracy. Forecast has no options to configure. Installing it will automatically place the widget on your lock screen and you can start enjoying it immediately.

    Name: Forecast
    Price: 99Ę
    Version: 1.2.0-2
    Requirements: iOS 5
    Repo: ModMyi
    Developer: Stimpy5050
    Editor's Rating:  4/5

    Finally the perfect tweak that does exactly the right thing without changing the original Apple-esque look of the lock screen. Good job! No, I don't want my lock screen to look like android, I want it to look like iPhone and this is it.

    Agreed a very well done mod. Would not be surprised if Apple snags this up.

    Seeing as I have LockInfo, I won't need this tweak but I basically do the same thing with LockInfo as I do with this tweak.

    There wouldn't be a reason to use it with bulletin.

    Well you could have like OmniStat or something that you want to see in your LS and Bulletin would do that for you. Not everyone uses bulletin for weather

    Oh and it gets rid of iPod controls when you double press home button,

    I installed Forecast and now the music controls do not appear when pressing the home button twice on the lockscreen. Is anyone having the same issue?

    Refreshing every 15 minutes?? Without the option to change the intervals? Sounds like a battery drain to me. Looking forward to user feedback on this before I try.

    Does anyone know a way to increase the refresh interval from 15 minutes? Trying to find it in ifile I can't figure it out.

    Ditto if someone finds the refresh adjustment.

    Otherwise I like the tweak. Bought it last night.

    Same here, not showing up.

    I installed it, worked great for a minute or two. After that when I went to my lock screen it would show just one day of weather and that day was magnified. I swiped at the lock screen and every day was like that and my time was magnified too. Didn't notice if iPod controls were gone or not....long story short, I uninstalled. Looked great at first but turned out to be crap in the end.

    Lockinfo is not free. You must be using a pirated version.

    Battery drain is also not an issue, as it gets the update the same way that the iOS weather does and it is running anyway.
