    Im wondering how are some people showing Live weather on their APPS as a badge? Their also using The Weather Channel APP to do it.

    I saw pics in the Jailbroken Home screen thread.. But didnt get an answer there as people are busy looking at pictures.. :)

    I thought they were using CurrentTemp.. but thats not it because the icon is actually The Weather Channel and it has a badge with the temperature on it..

    Can anyone tell me?

    Or what are some other ways of showing live weather on the lockscren/homescreen without using LockInfo..

    Thanks!

    Theres an option in setting of Weather Icon that says 'Show Badge' thats what the little badge is and it shows like the TWC app

    I'm think TWC app must have the same sort of setting.

    Hmm k ill have to take a look at TWC app then..

    Im guessing must the paid version that has it. Because the free version sure has nothing about a label setting.. I just looked through it.

    So that adds it to the status bar. And i guess the Apple Weather App?

    I dont really like that Stock Weather App..

    Edit: Whats his repo to download this weathericon and give it a try?

    i dont think WI works with ip4 as of yet.

    I added that repo.. And i only have 3 things listed under it and they all relate to LockInfo plugins..

    I dont see a weathericon thing at all. Or do i need to get LockInfo in order to use it?

    Once added search: weathericon

    This is what you're looking for correct?

    Ok here is a more detailed link:
    http://modmyi.com/cydia/package.php?id=3304

    Also I believe I got this through ROCK so if you have that up and running try searching for it with verifying your recently added repo's there...

    If that still doesn't work or if you are opposed to ROCK I will try and upload the files for you tomorrow evening (unless some else uploads earlier)

    I'm off to bed (2 hrs past lol) hopefully you get this up and running, I'll check back tomorrow for you. Good luck!

    PS, in the link (might be useful)...

    Pre-Depends: mobilesubstrate, preferenceloader, com.ashman.libweather
