How to Replace Your Lock Screen With The Weather App
For those of you who just cannot leave the Lock screen as blank as it is, there is a quite useful solution. Now, with the help of Forecast, you can add a dynamic, weather-based lock screen that tweaked apps ncludes detailed information and animations to your jailbroken iOS device.
As a matter of fact, it will change the lock screen completely by offering an informative solution through the weather-based widget. Fortunately, the tweak is optimized for iOS and AMR64-devices.
Once you have Forecast installed, your lock screen will start displaying a weather app animation depending on 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, you will also have access to information such as temperature, a description of the current conditions and the day’s high and low temperature levels.
Forecast Tweak Features and Options
Basically, Forecast replaces Slide to unlock on the lock screen with the weather widget on the bottom left part. When you swipe to the left of the Lock screen, Forecast adds a new page that offers an insight over a more detailed weather forecast, without having to unlock your device.
The tweak acquires the weather information, including the dynamic wallpaper, based on your shared location. It is important to mention the fact that Forecast, developed by DBA Technologies, also offers animated lock screen and home screen wallpapers based on the weather condition.
Regarding the data refresh, the animated wallpaper on both the lock screen and home screen does not change perfectly according to the local weather condition. So, you might have to wait a little bit longer to see the snow showers falling on your home screen wallpaper.
Contrary to what most of you might think, the animated wallpaper for both the lock screen and the home screen do not impact the performance of your device in any way. However, if you are afraid of decreasing the performance of your device, you can easily disable the feature to prevent battery drainage.
Also, there are a number of options to configure in the preferences panel of this tweak. Actually, head over to the Settings app, search here, you can see options such as:
– showing the current weather;
– darkening the text and icons for the current weather;
– showing the forecast page;
– darkening the forecast;
