For Feather Weather 2, click HERE
Portrait Version Now Available!
The smallest weather app available has just gone on a diet, it started at 950kb and now comes in at a lightweight sub 850 kb. Its been slimmed down in size but not in weather data available. The new TotalClock cab has the full five day and current conditions within the clock panel itself. Check out the screenshots below, you only see one day at a time for a nice clean look. Hit the right soft key to advance thru the days and when you done, it has a timer to reset itself to current conditions after 60 seconds of non-flipping of the forecast pages.



For those who would rather have it seperate, the original version still uses a seperate forecast panel along with current conditions only in the clock panel. But even though it hasn't changed, I have managed to squeeze another 100 kb off of it.
On the original version clock panel you get info for current: temperature, icon, real feel temp, winds, humidity, visibility, barometer, uv level, cloud cover, precipitation, sunrise, sunset, air quality levels, and dewpoint. Also, on the clock panel you get tomorrow's forecast: conditions, hi/lo temperatures, real feel high temps, winds, and estimated precipitation.
On condensed clock panel, there is current temp, current condition icon, time, and todays Hi/Lo temperatures. So if you dock your clock, you will always have weather and time showing on homescreen.
And for a full forecast, there is a 5 day forecast panel that can be enabled or disabled. The forecast pages have info for: day, date, conditions, hi/lo temperatures, precipitation estimates, uv levels, and winds expected.



Both have a user set time interval for the updates depending on your needs, wants, or data plans. Just go to setup and specify the interval in minutes. The default is 30 minutes. The forecast data updates every 8th time weather update runs, that way you get updated forecast info every 4 hrs if you use the default for current condition updates.


To install: For now, install to main memory, I'm working on either or version.

Download the cab. After installation, it should prompt you to restart. If it doesn't, then restart your phone to set new clock panel in place. After reboot, wait about 10 seconds and the FeatherOptions will run automatically. Go to Setup and set all of your info, good idea to go ahead and set your right soft key on the clock panel at this time. After setup, exit options by selecting "Run Weather Update and Exit".
That's it, your done.
NOTE: I beleive I worked out my problem with mortscript registering itself, but if it doesn't auto start the options after 10 seconds, then go to FeatherWeather folder in Program Files and click on Mortscript.exe .

To uninstall: First download the ResetClockPanel.zip below. Unzip and then place the .mscr file on your phone. Run it with File Explorer, this will reset your clock panel. Now go to Settings/Remove Programs and uninstall the cab.

City Location Codes:
For anyone that needs to find their city code, use this link and change the location in this url to the name of your city and then go to it and it will give a list of all cities worldwide that have that name. Get your location from there and enter it exactly as it appears in the quotes, but do not use the quotes.
http://hadle.accu-weather.com/widget...ation=calcutta
So, for this link above, if you were looking for Calcutta, India. Go to this link, and you will see a line like this:
<location cnt="1" city="Calcutta" state="India(Bangla)" location="ASI|IN|IN036|CALCUTTA" />

So your location to enter in to options would be :
ASI|IN|IN036|CALCUTTA

This should work for cities worldwide.

Feather currently is installed with a slim panel layout only. If you want more dll or cpr options, they are easily installed with FileChanger. Those are more homescreen customizations than they are weather customization, thats why they aren't in here.

For landscape phones: If you don't want the slim panels, I have standard panels cpr and mini panels cpr that work specifically with FeatherWeather. They are in the Featherscprs.zip below. Just install with the FileChanger app or copy into windows folder. Click on the File Changer in my signature below for the File Changer thread and download.

New Portrait versions below, the last 2 cabs that names end with "P" are the portrait versions. Portrait versions updated 8/19/08 with new cpr. If you already installed, you can download the cpr zip only and install to windows directory.

Check out these new portrait layouts provided by Kron2:



Make sure you get the landscape or portrait version you need, first 2 are Landscape, last 2 are Portrait

NOTE: There was a slight change in the feed. So after installing one of these cabs, please go to Post #101 and download the forecast fix.

After setup, exit options by selecting "Run Weather Update and Exit".
That's it, your done.


To uninstall: Go to Settings, Remove Programs and uninstall the cab. It won't change your clock panel back, but it will remove everything else. To revert clock panel back, install an original cpr or cpr of your choice.


Feather currently uses a slim panel layout, but I will add more support if anyone wants standard or fat panels. If you want more dll or cpr options, they are easily installed with FileChanger. Those are more homescreen customizations than they are weather customization, thats why they aren't in here.

The app only needs the cpr file adjusted for the clock panel layout to be ready to go. I have no way to test the layout, so it would be a total guess. If someone wants to make the cpr, or I could post a test version. A test version would probably have to be tweaked after installed to get the layout just right. You want to test? I can take a stab at the layout if you want to finish the final tweaking of positions.

Edit: If you want to pm me your email, I have a test cpr ready if you want to try it.

When I try and run Feather Options, I get and error: There is no application associated with "FeatherOptions"

I installed the CAB to the device memory. I get a generic clock icon and some weather info.

Thanks for any help, and of course for the nice plugin (once I can get it to work) I'm on a Moto Q Global.
