so, whats the big deal about this app? there are countless weather.io apps in the play store that give the same information.
a fan favorite weather timeline
my new favorite Forecaster
and others (that I'm too lazy to link) like Arcus, weather wild, simple weather ect.
not only does this app not look that great, but they are also charging $3/year, which is next to nothing, but when other apps do the same thing, look better, and cost a one time payment of $3, I dont see the hype about this app.
Maybe you can work with the dev of Weather Timeline to integrate the PressureNET data into a really nice weather app. Best of both worlds and a Dark Sky killer.
I purchased Weather Timeline a few months ago and love it. Great widgets and lots of configuration options.
*Forgot about Rainy Days. It's a great little radar app that lets you see nearly real time updates on precip in your area. Updates every 10 minutes and shows the severity of precip by color. I've used it successfully many times to dodge thunderstorms.
Weather Timeline has been one of my favourite apps since I first got it. Beautiful UI and animations. It has a persistent notification option meaning I don't have to open the app to find my weather, a 48 hour timeline of the weather and even rain, cloud and temperature maps. It is, I find, a perfect blend of simplicity and detail. Link.
Check out Weather Timeline. It is a paid app but in my opinion is the best weather app out there and totally worth it. They have a bunch of nice looking, customizable widgets where you can get things pretty minimal.
Here's the link: [link]
The app Weather Timeline is a highly recommended weather app that can get its data from DarkSky as well as a few others. The interface is very nicely designed.
I can't personally comment about the auto updates since I've not done anything with those. It does say that background updates are disabled except for widgets, alerts, or notifications, so maybe those will be updated on their own?
Weather Timeline because of its UI, multiple weather sources to choose from, super customizable widgets and tons of options to tailor it to your liking.
unfortunately it's not available in Play Store anymore, unless you had purchased it in the past.
I'm currently eyeing Overdrop for when WT stops working, although it currently only pulls weather data from Dark Sky, which isn't the most accurate in my area (I use Weather Underground in WT).
I tried out Today Weather, but I don't like its iOS-esque UI, and the way the developer spammed /r/androidapps with his app promotion back when the app was still new.
I just decided to try out different weather apps for my phone, and all in all this was my favorite app by far. Great design, and presents the forecasts in a really good way. The widgets are great, and massive points for allowing you to chose what apps to use for clock and calendar for widgets that support them.
My only complain is that the Swedish localization is not complete, as some strings was still in English even when the app was set to use Swedish. It's not a big deal (I switched to English), but annoying nonetheless.
I uninstalled it last month with similar reasons. Used it for 2 years or so before its name changes, but the app is getting more bloat every time I updated it. Sometimes it uses lots of ram in background for no reason and causes lag.
Currently I use Weather Timeline. Much more stable for me.
I do not think you will find any weather app that is 100% accurate all the time.
My recommendation would be to try Weather Timeline. With it you get the choice of using one of the 5 weather providers so if you do not like one weather provider you can easily switch use a different one.
Weather Timeline is your best bet.
Minimal w/ a material design and super customizable.
My current use of a the widgets
I like Weather Timeline's stellar rain notification that tells you stuff like:
"It will start raining/snowing/drizzling in 12 minutes and will be for 45 minutes"
If you don't mind paying a dollar (or two), try Weather Timeline.
But, if you are looking for a free weather app with widgets, accuracy and neat design, try Weather Wiz
I've been saying this since I got it and I'll continue saying this. It's the only app (apart from some Google apps) that I believe truly implements Material Design correctly.
I really love Weather Timeline's widgets, there's multiple widgets including plain weather ones and ones with clocks as well. I also enjoy HD Widgets, mostly due to the customizability (although it is a pretty simple app, nowhere nearly as customizable as Zooper Widget).
Good list, but with the recent Material design update, the official Wikipedia app looks and feels superior to LoboWiki
Timely just added custom alarm sounds and is still one of the sleakest and most well designed apps on Android.
Calcu is still missing immersion mode, but other than that pretty darn sleak.
When it comes to weather, <strong>Weather Timeline</strong> is the one for me:
Looks great, displays a lot of information in a really good and easy to read format and supports several sources including forecast.io (there aren't many other apps that do yet).
Weather Timeline is hands down my favorite [link]
And I also use Blitzortung Lightning Monitor if the storm coming posses a threat to training (I coach, and dont like WeatherBug detector) [link]
I use one of their smaller widgets (4x1 I think) and I made the background transparent. [link]
Weather Timeline has been around since the Marshmallow days, and it’s still my go-to for that exact reason. It does exactly what you’re asking for, and does it well. Not to mention it’s still regularly updated~!
There's a fantastic app I use on my phone and, until yesterday on my android wear watch, really great and accurate weather app using forecast.io. I'm gonna shoot him an email asking about pebble support - it's exactly the kinda thing you're asking for with timeline stuff.
If you're looking for a weather app check out Weather Timeline [link]
It's not free but very affordable and well worth the money. Just a weather app. Not weather news, or any extra fluff.
Weather Timeline is my go to. Besides quickly being able to get a few hour forecast in the notification bar, it has a widget that has the temperature and precipitation as a line graph over 24, so it's ready to know what the temperature and rain will be all day.
The app itself has everything I want within a few chicks and it looks better than almost every other app doing it.
I wasn't able to search for WT when I went to reinstall it on my Note9, but some kind soul helped me get it.

Link to WT on play store
If you have an Android phone, I cannot recommend Weather Timeline enough, for its incredible forecasts.
It'll do things like, recommend you take an umberella to work with you if it detects there will be rain later in the day.
This morning, it predicted 15° by lunchtime, so we knew to wear plenty of thin layers to be able to adjust for that, but likely drop back down during the evening commute.
Weather timeline is about the most perfect app in every way. Depending on the provider, the minimum update time is either 1 hour or 3 hours. (You can set it lower than that but it will still offer new information every hour or so). It does all you ask it for.
Price is at $0.99 IIRC
Weather Timeline has a widget like that.
I also use InstaWeather for Android Wear with a similar watchface.
Use Weather Timeline. You can use WU as a data source and the widget is much nicer looking. They also have an Android Wear face that changes color with the current conditions (and finally fixed the issue of white on white when it snows...)
Relay is your best bet for Reddit on Android. I promise once you use it you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. It perfectly adheres to Material design~~, and as your 5X has an AMOLED screen, you can turn on the Black AMOLED theme inside Relay to save a bunch of battery.~~ (Sorry, I was confusing my 6P for the 5X)
Use the free version of Relay for a bit and see if you like it. The only difference between paid is that there's sometimes an ad at the bottom of the screen in the free one.
EDIT: For weather, I strongly recommend you grab Weather Timeline. It's only 99 cents, and again, adheres perfectly to Material design (it actually won an award from Google for it). It uses Forecast.io as its source, and is extremely accurate. It has great widgets too. [link]
I didn't give any permissions (not even location permission) and It works fine for me.
If it doesn't allow you to open on your miui version, ditch that app. It seriously doesn't need that permission and they are seriously abusing permissions.
Move to other weather apps. For example, weather timeline - It might cost 2$ but It's a very good app. Alternatively you can use Google's weather information. It allows you to create weather shortcut.
Costa ma è fatta bene, ti consiglio di provarla inoltre ha diversi provider così se non ti trovi puoi cambiare tranquillamente.
I absolutely love Weather Timeline. Yes, it's $0.99, but it's worth it. Go get Google Opinion Rewards and do a few surveys. You'll have the money for it in no time. Widgets are nice, lots of customization, multiple data sources if you find one to be more or less accurate than another, Material design, and your notification shows up on the lock screen. At least, it does on my 6P.
Weather Timeline all the way. See the weather with a watchface, sticky notification, and app, and customize the hourly view to show the next four hours in a row.
Well you can always find via "Installed Apps" section in "My Apps*
or via your Order history. Anyways here's the link for Weather Timeline.
I can't recommend Weather Timeline enough for accurate forecasts and a really nice interface (and widgets) for seeing what the days weather will be like.
It has some really sensible features.. things like, it'll warn you early in the morning if you should take an umbrella with you today. It is spooky in how accurately it'll predict rain.
if you dont mind spending a few cents, check out Weather timeline ([link])
i like its simplicity/material design and it lets you choose from different weather sources.
I've been using Darksky for a while and it's always been decent as far as I can tell. (On Android, for weather, I'm using Weather Timeline with DarkSky as the data provider.) :)
I can't help you with all of these; but you could use weather timeline (that's the best imo but there are others) as your weather card instead of google now. The issue with this is that you'll sometimes have the weather timeline card and the google now weather card which is annoying. You could tell google now you're not interested in weather updates from it. The weather timeline card can also be swiped away but you can relaunch it from the watch which is nice.
I use Weather Timeline - Forecast by Sam Ruston because there are a bunch of widget options and you can change the colors pretty freely. Would definitely recommend. I use a transparent one so all I see is the icon for the weather and a bit of text for the temperature.
Fwiw, this weather app recently started listing the UV index along with the weather, and has quickly become my go-to to see how much I should cover up/bother going outside at all.
There isn't. Weather Timeline (and other weather apps) have a permanent notification you can enable with the temperature as the notification's icon. The AOD shows notification icons, so that's where I get the temperature from.
I had to rethink my widgets for this phone, going from 4 icons wide to 5 wide. A lot of widgets can't be centred in a way I like, which triggers me and my need for simple beauty. Weather Timeline has some really great widgets which fit into the Material design aesthetic and are customisable. It's also a great weather app in itself.
I'm running the Weather Timeline Clock 4x2 (stretched to 5x2) widget with a transparent background:

It does look great. And material design is one of the many reasons I'm making the switch. I can live with an ad for a while no big deal. Thanks for the suggestion!
> as your 5X has an AMOLED screen
I thought it was IPS LCD?
> For weather, I strongly recommend you grab Weather Timeline. It's only 99 cents, and again, adheres perfectly to Material design (it actually won an award from Google for it). It uses Forecast.io as its source, and is extremely accurate. It has great widgets too. [link]
Awesome! Forecast.io is what Dark Sky was using as source on iOS. Added to the wishlist! Thank you!
I like Weather Timeline for my weather app and has a decent interactive watchface. Also Card settings for wear notifications.
The weather widget is Weather Timeline. I think his Google bar is one of the options in Nova Launcher.
I noticed that, too.
Possible option: The Weather Timeline app adds a wether card that has a lot more info when you swipe left than the Google card. Link: [link]
Weather Timeline uses the same weather provider, provides similar rain alerts, and is a one time purchase instead of using a subscription based model. Plus it's not simply a port of an iOS app with a complete disregard for Google's material design guidelines.
In Android, you have a plenty of possibilities to customise the appearance the way you want; there's an app for most things out there.
Specifically, I'd like to recommend Weather Timeline, it is definitely worth the money and offers a wide range of beautiful widgets.
Also, Nova Launcher covers many of the features you asked for. Play around with it !
Much to my dismay this was the case on my G3 as well after swapping to Nova, but I ended up using Weather Timeline and it's widget to correct the issue
I use Weather underground as the data source on the Weather Timeline app(Google Play), and it gives me pretty accurate weather updates. I don't know how much more accurate weather apps in other countries are, but I find weather underground reliable.
I definitely think you can get a cleaner-looking weather widget. The squared-off corners of the Weather Network one just don't look great with everything else. Have you tried Weather Timeline?
The clock widget I'm using is a clock+weather widget from Weather Timeline, my personal favourite weather app. It changes colours depending on the weather outdoors. My wallpaper, Forest Live Wallpaper, does this too - it grows dark when it's night out and shows rain and snow.
for clean Forecast.io I still feel (now after seeing Forecaster) that this one does a good job in being clean and displaying much information smartly [link]
Weather Timeline is pretty sweet. It still uses cards, but it includes a watch app to force a refresh, change the refresh frequency, or change the location. The phone app is beautiful and uses the same forecast.io source as arcus (plus, weather timeline lets you change the source to weather underground among others)
Alternatively, the Pujie Black watchface has a weather widget you tap on to bring up at 12-hour forecast or a 5-day forecast (both with graphs). Because its built into the watchface (and not a separate app that has to load), its smooth and fast.
It's a widget from Weather Timeline and the icon pack is Material Cards
Weather timeline (paid) let you pick the datasource, and help you choose one, by suggesting the datasource market share
I used to jump from app to app all the time when it came to weather apps, and none of them seemed to work well for me until I found Weather Timeline. Fantastic app, and of course includes the information you're looking for as well.
It's the Weather Timeline widget.
It's a great app. Very accurate (for me anyway), has a beautiful design and the widget has a ton of options.
Weather Timeline with Wunderground as my source. With WT, I can type an actual address to get the correct hyperlocal weather information from sources that support it, like Wunderground and Forecast.io. I live in a city with a lot of microclimates, so hyperlocal weather is very useful for me.
i also liked this weather app very much. it has an watchface to display weather in a very simplistic way, as well as showing cards.
Like the .novabackup ? Here you go , but make sure you have Weather Timeline installed
Sure, it's the card widget for Weather Timeline, which is my preferred weather app. It does the usual thing where it launches appropriate apps when you tap on the clock, date or weather. By default it's more like a blocky material design card but the settings include variable colour and opacity.
This is Nova Launcher with stock adaptive icons set to circular.
Widget at the top is Weather Timeline.
Got the wallpaper off Google (Can upload it if anyone wants it for some reason)
Most of the icons are actually folders set to open with a swipe up and the first app in the folder to be the main icon.
Weather is Weather Timeline-Forecast [link]
Calendar is Calendar Widget-Month [link]
Check out Weather Timeline. It does hour by hour and has six different data sources to choose from. My favorite part are the rain alert notifications. It's pretty cool to know that it's about to rain in ten minutes.
After messing around with a few, Weather Timeline seems pretty good and I think I'll stick with it for the foreseeable future. Very customizable. Now if only people could integrate Radar Scope in to their forecast apps...
The GRLevelX products will display active alerts and warnings in a separate window. Other than that, I use the Weather Timeline app on my phone and tablet to receive realtime alerts. I also like RadarScope and PYKL3 Radar apps for viewing real time radar data on my devices.
The app/widget I'm talking about is this one:
I got a refund for now. Hopefully it will get resolved as I really like the look. Added an edit to clarify in the main post ;)
Not OP but he's running Android (most likely 5.0, 6.0, or 7.0) and the weather icon is probably a notification icon from a weather app (e.g. Weather Timeline can do that)
I'm finding Weather Timeline to be amazingly accurate, and I've put that down to it's use of forecast.io for data. I'd never come across forecast.io before.. everything I'd used previously has AccuWeather as the feed.
So, what I'm not sure about is whether this is entirely down to forecast.io, or just this clever app's interpretation of that data?
Just checked out Flamingo for Twitter and it's awesome, the design is fantastic.
I also realised I have another app by the same Dev:
Weather Timeline - Forecast. It's a really good looking weather app, several data sources to choose from. Can't fault it. The guy seems to be pretty good at this kind of thing.
Awesome, thank you so much for that list! I feel I should give some app tips back but really I use hardly any cool apps:
Weather Timeline is the best weather app ever and looks really nice too, I think it won an Material Design Showcase award
Its not an app but sportle.tv is really useful for watching sports online
This is my first theme I've done, pleae feel free to tell me know that you think! : D

Weather Timeline has humidity forecasts by hour and for the next 7 days (including by hour for future days), both in a card format and graph format.
I know a lot of people speak highly of Weather Timeline. It's got a unique way of presenting the data.
This is basically what I do now, only using my phone as the second source (with Weather Timeline set to use forecast.io).
You could also load up the Pebble app "Rain" around stormy weather.
>Will marshmellow put the current temp in the notification bar?
No, but plenty of apps will. I suggest Weather Timeline.
>How can I have it go silent at night and turn the volume back up in the morning?
The Moto app has something for this, go check it out. But as always, Tasker will also do that and so, so much more.
>Serious I've been out of the game for so long. What did I miss?
Material design, Google Now being actually good, NFC payments changing completely, and a shit ton of battery/stability/security improvements.
Weather Timeline - Forecast is pretty much exactly what you're looking for. Has everything you described in one form or another.
Here's my home screen. Nova Launcher (prime), and that's about it. I keep it simple and functional. [link]
Edit: Weather widget is Weather Timeline (awesome) if anyone cares. [link]
Weather timeline WT icon set, set in settings.
I'm pretty sure that's the stock LG one. I have no idea what it's named though. I much prefer Weather Timeline. The widgets are beautiful!
Weather Timeline - Forecast
Costs a couple of tokens, but nothing you should be able to get off Google Rewards in short order.

Weather Timeline has upwards of a dozen widgets to choose from, all highly customizable. Here's mine. They have about a dozen iconsets to choose from, and you can set the opacity, colors, etc...
I've been using this app for a long time now and it's pretty spot on. You can also use Google as well and add a weather shortcut to the homescreen.
If you have Android, I've used Weather Timeline for the past couple years. You can filter its alerts to your preferences, so you don't miss that tornado amid a pile of flood warnings.
Best $1.50 I've ever spent, it has great aesthetics.
Weather Timeline is the widget and the app is layered with beautiful material design.
The folders are actually my app draw on the right and Google now on the left, I use Candy Cons for Icons!
Weather Timeline or Yr.no
Yr is from the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, also one of the sources for Weather Timeline.
Weather Timeline. Cost $2.99 but it's gorgeous, gives minute by minute rain predictions, and has really useful graphs and visuals. Highly recommend it!
Weather Timeline is one of the best reasons to have an Android
As a backup I have 1Weather.
I use this:
I don't use the widgets, I leave it as an always active notifaction. Just tapping it brings up the app on the weather screen for that day, there's a few options (24 hour by hour forecast, 7 day, etc.) that are right there on that screen. So two taps for all that information. There ARE widgets btw. I just don't use any, for any app.
If you decide to check out this app, do yourself a favor & try out one of the other apps by the same dev (Sam Ruston), Weather Timeline - Forecast.
The general consensus by Android enthusiasts tends to go something like, "I don't normally praise weather apps, but this one... [insert positive review]" & it often gets mentioned on lists of recommended apps over on /r/Android & /r/androidapps. Fantastic functionality as well as tons of customization options if that's your kind of thing.
Welcome! I hope you will find some useful apps. I forgot to add weather apps. I get weather info from google. Using assistant or google now cards. But, Some android users prefer dedicated app for weather. You can try Weather Timeline.
Danke für den Hinweis. Nutze Weather Timeline aufgrund der mit Abstand besten Widgets, aber die Daten waren eher so naja. Und siehe da, in der App kann ich auch Yr als Datenquelle wählen. Für heute schon mal ne deutliche Abweichung in der Prognose. Jetzt bin ich richtig gespannt, wann der Regen kommt und wer recht hat.
It's a widget (WT Week?) that comes with Weather Timeline (which is awesome)
I turned off the option to Change color with weather and set opacity to zero. I'm using an icon set it comes with called WT Material.
Weather Timeline just because I like the interface but it's forecasting is no better than anywhere else.
Regen radar can be very useful if you're specifically worried about rain.
APK links here: [link]
User there says this app can use Dark Sky as a source, as well.
I don't really care for the official app, I just care about the incredibly accurate local forecast, so Google around, see what you can find if those don't work for ya.
Weather Timeline is my favourite one! It's just a weather app but it presents everything in a ridiculously pretty and user friendly way. It also has a nice selection of data sources! (including my favourite, forecast.io)
Weather Timeline. Superb weather app. One of very few apps I bought and I don't regret it at all. Has nice themes, widgets, many options. You can also choose the weather provider.
Google will tell you about the weather if you want it to or not.
However, I use [link]
I can't remember if I paid for it or not but if I did it would have been cheap.
Use Weather Timeline as your weather + time widget instead, it's really nice. I don't use Nova, so I don't know much about it, but try fiddling with the grid size, and place apps down.
