Meteor tweak

Despite popular demand we have yet to see Apple adding ‘live’ icons to the homescreen. The stock Clock app shows the time on its animating icon, however that’s about it. One app users want a live icon for the most is the stock Weather app, so they can know the current weather situation without opening the app. If your iPhone is jailbroken, then that’s what the new Meteor tweak does. It adds the current temperature as well as weather condition right on the homescreen icon of the Weather app.

In addition to putting temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit, the Meteor tweak also shows the weather condition by displaying a snow, cloud, cloud and sun icon. The tweak replaces the condition image and the temperature with a smooth animation. That’s not all as the hack also replaces the icon label for the Weather app with the current weather condition, so your Weather app icon might say ‘Mostly Cloudy’ or ‘Snow’ instead of just showing the app’s name, which is pretty cool.

In addition to showing current weather condition on the app icon, Meteor tweak also adds this information on the Status Bar, making it visible to you from almost all parts of iOS. You can move the status bar weather glyph and temperature from left to right depending on your personal preference.

There are several other customization options that this tweak offers including the ability for users to change refresh rate of the weather report, make the tweak display local weather based on location, change from Celsius to Fahrenheit and more.

Meteor tweak for jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is compatible with iOS 9 and is available for $1.99.
