Cydia Tweak: Replace Your Lock Screen With The Weather App Using Forecast

February 7, 2014

Forecast, a useful new jailbreak tweak, can add a dynamic, weather-based Lock screen that includes detailed information and animations to your jailbroken iOS device. You can pick up the new jailbreak tweak for $0.99 in the Cydia Store, and it’s optimized for both iOS 7 and ARM64-devices.

Once you have Forecast installed, your Lock screen will display a Weather app animation depending on either your current location, or the location saved at the top of the Weather application’s list of cities. In addition to this, over in the bottom-right corner of the Lock screen information on the present weather is displayed: the temperature, a description of the current conditions, and the day’s high and low temperatures feature here.

Swiping on your iOS Lock screen reveals another page that includes more detailed information: as per the built-in Weather app, hourly weather and a five-day forecast is offered in this section of the jailbreak tweak.

Outside of the Lock screen, jailbreakers will find that Forecast adds a dynamic wallpaper to their iOS Home screen, too. Depending on the weather conditions at your present location, animations will play behind your Home screen icons. Of course, this feature comes at the cost of battery life, however, and as such it can be disabled from within Forecast’s preferences.

If you’re looking to bring the Weather app to your Lock screen, check out Forecast. As mentioned, it’s available in the Cydia Store for $0.99, and is optimized for iOS 7 and ARM64-devices.

Plus, if you own the older, pre-iOS 7 version of Forecast, the new package can be downloaded free of charge.
