    Anyone know of a tweak that will put the forecast on my home screen? And without the use of Winterboard?

    I have Forecast for my lock screen and it does exactly what I want - for my lock screen. I'm hoping there is something else out there that will do the same for the homescreen.

    I want to avoid Winterboard because a lot of themes have the bad habit of making me assign a background image by messing with theme files. Forecast doesn't do that. I might also mention that I am using the LivePapers tweak and usually a Winterboard theme seems to kill that too. Just looking for something I can install with minimal fuss and configuration to get it to work.

    If there isn't anything, then I'm okay with hearing that. I'd rather know then keep trying to find something that doesn't exist. Thanks!

    Oh yeah. I've got some iWidgets that to this installed right now, but I have to have one for each homescreen and they sit above my icons. They also don't seem to be a good looking as Forecast.

    Like that! Thanks much!

    I just found this before you posted. Don't know why I didn't think about it before. I still have to add it to each screen, but it's the exact same thing I have on the lock screen so it works for me. Thanks again!

    The Forecast tweak that puts the forecast on your lock screen also modifys the Notification Center Weather Widget by adding the time and making it look like it is in my screen shot. So, when I use Dashboard X to add the Weather Widget to my home screen I also get that modification that the Forecast tweak has made to the NC.

    Pretty cool!

    Nope. :)

    That's Audrey Meadows, aka Alice Kramden.

    I recently (past six months) became a fan of The Honeymooners and an even bigger fan of Audrey Meadows in particular.

    Nice! That's funny. I recently (over the past 18 months or so) became a huge fan of the old classics from the 1930's-1950's. at first glance I thought that was Ms Bergman. I haven't seen the Honeymooners. Ill have to check that out. I love Ingrid Bergman haha

    Ingrid is cool, but then I'm Swedish, so she has to be cool, huh? :D

    I wish I had seen the Honeymooners much earlier in my life. Like before 1996 when Audrey Meadows died. I never watched because I didn't care for Jackie Gleason and his overt threats of violence. But six months ago it happened to be on and I saw what it was really about.

    Watch it if you can. Jackie Gleason was once asked why it was still so popular. "Because it's funny," he said. And it's true.
