Weather dependent bitmaps
I'm new to zooper and have been customising a home screen for a couple of days. One thing I wanted to do was to display a different image for each weather condition (yahoo weather).
I figured out that I can do this by having multiple bitmaps overlaid on each other, one for each weather condition, with the alpha value set to 0 if the relevant weather condition isn't detected.
With not knowing too much about zooper just yet it struck me that this might be a bit of a heavy handed approach, with potentially up to 48 bitmaps in the widget (according to the yahoo weather condition codes XML I found) each with their own advanced parameters being monitored.
So I suppose my question is, am I going about this the right way and will it be a huge drain on resources?
