Would you like a quick way to check the weather on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad without having to actually launch the Weather.app? Or would want to spice up your lock screen with an ultimate weather experience? If so, then you should check out the recently released Cydia tweak called forecast that will add a native weather widget to your lock screen. In order to conserve battery life this tweak has been programmed to refresh at most every 15 minutes and when you do not have an active WiFi or 3G connection you will still be able to see your last update, with a small icon displayed in the corner to tell you weather is currently offline.
Forecast completely replaces the regular lock screen clock and has no settings to configure. It would be nice if you could choose whether you want the weather widget to appear below the LockScreen clock, rather than completely replacing it but it does spice up your lock screen and makes it impressive and it is definitely a tweak to brag about.
For those that are interested in Forecast you can find it through the ModMyi repo for $0.99.
To install this tweak for free you need to follow the steps given below:
- Open Cydia on your jailbroken iphone.
- Let the data load.
- Once the data is loaded go to search and type in “forecast”.
- It’s free in the IHR, insanelyi and sinfuliphone repo.
- Select it
- Install it.
- Respring or reboot your device.
- You are done to use it.
