Simple Weather Widget is simply the best weather widget in the App Store. It provides a highly customizable, very compact, beautifully designed widget in the "Today" view on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, which displays the current weather (and, optionally, a forecast) for your location. Finally a weather widget with NO WASTED SPACE on your Today screen!

A simple, clean, compact design with lots of options so you see as much or as little information as you want. Available information:

Current Weather:
- Temperature
- Clouds/Precipitation
- Relative humidity or dew point
- Today's high/low temperatures
- Wind speed and direction
- Sunrise/sunset time
- Severe weather alerts (premium users only)
- "Feels like" temperature (premium users only)
- UV Index (premium users only)

- Temperature (hourly & daily high/low)
- Clouds/Precipitation
- Precipitation likelihood (hourly & daily) (premium users only)
- Wind speed (hourly) (premium users only)

As much or as little as you'd like of all that information, and it only takes up a tiny bit of your Today View screen space.

You can also change the colors, select from three icon styles, or add a background image.

The free version features high quality weather data for your area from OpenWeatherMap. With a "Premium" upgrade, the widget can access more detailed data ("feels like" temperature, UV index, forecasted precipitation likelihood etc.) powered by the Dark Sky weather data service (it's a paid service, which is why the Premium option costs a bit more). There's also an economical "Plus" option that simply removes the "free version" message and updates the forecast more frequently.

To add the widget to your Today view, once you've installed the app, just swipe down from the top of the screen, select the "Today" tab, and then find the "Edit" button at the bottom of the page. Under "Do Not Include", you'll find an item called "Weather" with the app's icon. Tap the little green (+) button next to it, and you're all set!

What's New

Version 3.7

At long last, the much-anticipated next version of Simple Weather Widget! Here's what's new:
- We finally fixed the "Unable To Load" bug some users were experiencing when weather data updated!
- We added our most-requested feature: Full, detailed daily and hourly forecasts on two separate lines!
- We updated the widget to work better with iOS 10: We've decided (for the time being, at least) *not* to migrate to the new "collapsible" iOS 10 widget style, primarily because it won't allow our widget to be as small as it currently is, even in collapsed mode. If Apple decides to allow shorter widgets in a future iOS release, we'll update.

Feel free to send us an email with any questions or comments, we love to hear your feedback! Also, if you like Simple Weather Widget, please leave us a new review in the App Store, and consider upgrading to Plus or Premium. Thanks so much for all your support!!!

The PERFECT weather widget


I've gone through all the weather widgets I could find and this one has exactly what I needed. It lets you choose exactly how much and what data to display in the widget and does so intelligently. It presents a large amount of data (if you choose so) but does so in an easy to understand manner. Apple would be smart to license this widget and build it right into ios. It was worth the price for me. One suggestion like another reviewer mentioned was for a slight color to the weather icons, for instance to make a rainy day easily stand out from a sunny day at a glance. Either way this is my top widget!

PERFECT design

Thom P 76

The clean compact design of this widget is so much better than the others in the App Store. Lots of information in barely any space, and it looks nice and clean. The free version has an annoying banner so it's kind of useless except as a "preview". As far as the reviewers complaining about the price, The premium version is definitely on the pricey side, but I went with it anyway because I wanted the UV index and precip forecast. If you don't care about that it's only 99¢! So far, very accurate forecast, and exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended.
