Glance Weather is a new app that shows us quite a different weather widget. There are many widgets and weather apps, with different types of interpretation. Some are full-featured weather apps and other rare widgets that show us the weather for the day and the week.
In the middle is Glance Widget, an application that tries to show us, in the most natural way possible, the evolution of rain and wind throughout the day. It requires a certain learning curve, so we will tell you what it offers and why it is different from the others.
An app that tries to look like what you see out the window
When we open a weather app, it usually tells us whether or not it will rain on a certain day. Some offer detailed hourly forecasts once we click on the day, but not too many widgets that show it at a glance.
Glance Widget is coming to show exactly when it rains, when it will be cloudy, when it will not and when it will be cloudy, all thanks to a simple bar system.
- If the sky is clear it will turn blue
- If it’s cloudy it will turn gray
- If it starts to rain it will be dark blue
- If it rains it will come out almost black
Basically the app claims that know what time it will be according to the color of the bars. If the sky is dark enough for a while, you will know that it is going to rain heavily during those hours. If it’s gray, it will be cloudy.
The purpose of the app is to be able to see all the weather information in a single graph, including the times when it will rain.
Likewise, wind information is displayed in the form of a “puff”, a simple icon that allows us to see at a glance how much wind it will be. Apart from this, current notes appear, as well as a small graph with the temperature evolution.
The app is just a widget, so we can’t open it to expand on this information. All weather information at a glance, is the goal of this curious application which has just landed on Google Play. It is completely free (at the moment) and does not contain any advertising.
