    Is there a weather tweak that can show a small weather icon and temp on status bar? The current weathericon tweak is incompatible with iPhone 5 as far as i am aware.

    Also, is it possible to set up the source for the data for that tweak? I would like to show real windchill values instead of just temperature (so i know if i should dress up for -20 in reality or the -11 temp shown and suffer).

    :eek: The difference between -anything and -anything is IT'S COLD!!! There's no temperature, it just sucks the life out of you.

    I'd love to have this tweak as well, it's one thing I've missed from the droid days.

    Living in the great white north is different .p. the temp may be -8 which is not really that bad, but the windchill may be -21 at the same time which can freeze you in minutes.

    Nothing exists that I'm aware of other than WeatherIcon. WeatherIcon should be updated at some point in the near future I would assume. The dev is the same dev behind Forecast and Lockinfo. He is very active in the community. Once it is updated though, you'll be able to choose RealFeel so you'll get the wind chill temperature instead of the traditional temp. I use this setting as well. I'm from Boston and I know how big of a difference the temperature and wind chill can be!

    The app hasn't been updated since 2011 from the change log. I don't think he is supporting it anymore. I tried to contact the dev with no response. I would be willing to pay for a tweak like this.

    Edit: I removed my post. I didn't see the tweets posted above me. That is so very disappointing especially since weathericon worked on 5.1.1 if I remember correctly.

    So just as everyone is upgrading to iOS 7 and jailbreaking this functionality is back in iOS 6.1.2. Seems to some how been fixed with all the updates to mobilesubtrate and everything else being worked on. Now I wish I could have this functionality in iOS 7.

    I have the temperature showing on my iPhone 4s running 6.1.2 using weathericon.
