Jailbreak Only: Forecast - Spice Up Your Lock Screen With Information On The Weather
Forecast ($0.99) is a new, simple jailbreak tweak that allows users to have a weather widget display on their Lock screen. Once downloaded and installed, the app displays the widget at the top of the Lock screen, as you can see in the above image. Information displayed includes the time, location, temperature (along with temperature highs and lows), and a weather icon. The appearance of the application is akin to that of the weather widget in Notification Center. [caption id="attachment_293725" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="Forecast"][/caption] The tweak was actually created by the developer of LockInfo, a more complex (and expensive) jailbreak tweak that adds a whole array of new widgets and toggles to the Lock screen. Though LockInfo is a great tweak, if all you're looking for is just a weather widget for the Lock screen, we would obviously recommend that you save your money and instead purchase Forecast. As mentioned, the tweak is currently available in the Cydia Store for $0.99, and it's hosted by the ModMyi repository. Below, we've included a video walkthrough of Forecast provided by iDownloadBlog. Enjoy!
