widescape weather is coming to your iPhone

I am currently working on an app prototype that will change the way you experience weather forecast on your iPhone. Simple, stylish, but yet detailed.

Weather forecast as it always should have been.

Hi, how do you get this to work on mac os?

It’s quite easy:

  1. First make sure you have the Yahoo! Widgets engine installed. You can download it here as a Mac version and a Windows version (Note: Since Yahoo Widgets were discontinued, these downloads from the widescape server are inofficial).
  2. Then download the widescapeWeather widget, unzip the file and double-click the widescapeWeather.widget file to install it in Yahoo! Widgets.
  3. Set a location and off you go! Enjoy!

If you encounter any problems, please leave a comment. – Cheers, Robert

Can widescapeWeather widget be used in Windows 8? I have downloaded the application, but the system asked me to find a app to open it. I don't know what to use. Thank you.

Hi, it should work on Windows 8. If you downloaded the widescapeWeather widget, you’ll need the Yahoo Widget engine, too. You can download it here: http://widescape.net/widgets/downloads/yahoo-widgets-4.5.2.exe

I greatly appreciate the widget. I just replaced my monitor, and I am no longer able to move the widget with my mouse. I have left the "Ignore Mouse" and "Prevent Dragging" option under Window Preference unchecked. Can you suggest how I can again change the location of the widget? Thank you.

Hi! You should be able to move it by holding the CTRL key (CMD key on a Mac) before and while dragging the widget. Does this work for you?

Version 2.3 is out and now supports weather information and dates in French and German - besides English. The language will be chosen automatically according to your computer’s setting.
Go ahead and download widescapeWeather 2.3 now. To install simply unzip the downloaded file and double click the unzipped widget.
Thanks to Pierre Bédat for the inspiration and his great help with the french translation!
If you’re missing the Yahoo! Widgets engine, you can still download it here: Mac version, Windows version (inofficial downloads).

Hello, first of all I want to TANK YOU for maintaining this widget alive. I LOVE it and would be horrified if it would die. :o) My question is: is it possible to modify something for the widget to display the day, date and forecast days in french? I'm asking this becaus the reference page for the weather info the widget is linked with is in french, but the displayed info are in english. Best regards and thank you very very much. Pierre

Thank you! I’ll take a look at this. I guess it should be possible. :)

Update: Here you go: Version 2.3 (Download) comes in English, French and German. Thanks for your help, Pierre!

Yahoo! Widgets discontinues - widescapeWeather keeps on

Yahoo! will be discontinuing the Widget engine by April 10th, 2012. Read their full information here.

But: I am planning to keep widescapeWeather alive. The widget has its own version check - independent of Yahoo’s. So I am optimistic that the widget will continue its service and you’ll still get updates.

Location and 3rd Forecast Day Missing (Fixed)

Currently there is an issue with Weather Underground’s data feed. Yesterday they implemented a new 10 day forecast feature and it seems, this release broke the 3 day forecast that the widescapeWeather widget uses.

This also leads to a disappearing location.

I already contacted them about it and hope the issue will be solved shortly.

Update: And it’s fixed!

LOVE widescapeWeather but am having issues. At first, the widget would never open back up after restarting the computer or logging out/in. Now I can't get it to open at all. I have reinstalled the Yahoo Widget application as well as the widescape widget. Looking at activity monitor, it looks like I get a crash report soon after trying to open the widget, but I don't know enough for it to be useful to me.

Update: There is no proper solution for this yet. But - strangely - randomly deinstalling Yahoo! Widgtes and the widescapeWeather widget and deleting the preference files of both seems to solve this problem for some people.

For futher assistance contact me at info (at) widescape.net
