Meteogram Pro Weather Forecast v1.9.5
Overview: This weather widget (and associated app) provides a detailed and visually appealing weather forecast, allowing you very quickly to understand what to expect when you venture outdoors. The graphical format is commonly referred to as a ‘meteogram’.
This is the highest-rated app of its type in the Play Store!

(+) in our opinion!
The app provides a (near) full-screen meteogram, and is interactive. Clicking on any time point will open a pop-up with more detailed information about the weather at that time point.
You can place a resizable meteogram directly onto your device’s home screen. The meteogram is updated in the background to keep the forecast up to date. This provides an immediate and convenient view of the weather ahead, without even having to open an app.
But the full-screen interactive app is just a single click away, direct from the widget.
The widget is initially placed as a 4×2 widget, but thereafter can be dragged to any size you like! The widget features resize intelligently to provide a clear representation, no matter what size is chosen, even showing in landscape format if more appropriate.
You can place multiple widgets onto your home screen, each relating to a different location and each having a different appearance.
You have a choice of weather data providers:
★ met.no (the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, who supply data to yr.no)
★ noaa.gov (the US government agency, and US only)
★ forecast.io (who supply data for the popular Dark Sky app for iOS)
The forecast.io and worldweatheronline sources provide hourly forecast data, no matter where you are, whereas for met.no it is hourly in parts of northern Europe and three-hourly elsewhere (though soon the hourly data may be restricted to just Norway).
Note that this app is in no way associated with or endorsed by met.no, yr.no, the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, noaa.gov, worldweatheronline or forecast.io.
