Thank you for this beautiful app. Above all others I've tried over the years. Thanks for the continued support for 4.1 and above. My secondary device is kitkat and it's great using it on there as well. VERY NICE!!

It takes a lot of trouble to keep backward compatibility while keeping the product evolution. I'm glad to read it makes difference for people. Thank you for letting us know!
I hope we can keep 4.1 support on for as long as we can.
Enjoy the weather :)

Yes, I understand that and that's why it's appreciated. Sources? Dark Sky or Wunderground, are they still a paid source to use? Any Canadian sources that you could possibly add?

We are constantly looking for affordable weather API sources.

Dark Sky was acquired by Apple. They are going to discontinue the API access within a year.

Weather Underground has been acquired by IBM. After that we were banned from using the API.
This is the official answer from IBM.
"I can not offer you our service. Because we have a terms and condition violation
Please take a look at
https://www-03.ibm.com/software/sla/sladb.nsf/sla/sd-7492-10
5.2 Restrictions on Usage
(1) Restriction of usage: Client is prohibited from using the Data, directly or indirectly, as part of, or to create, a Third
Party Application the essential purpose of which is to provide current or forecast weather or atmospheric conditions or analysis thereof."

We are going to add personal weather stations (PWSs) network from Aeris weather soon.

Supporting Canadian weather agency weather is on our task list.
I hope it won't take long.

Anyway Foreca is a very good weather source worldwide.
I recommend choosing Nowcasting/Foreca pair in YoWindow weather settings.

    I used this as a Daydream on my Tablet but I stopped using it because it freezes after a while.
    Another thing is that it's too complicated to read the weather.

    When did you use YoWindow last time?
    I remember a problem with force-closing while the app is running for a long.
    We have fixed it for sure.

    I wonder what is the problem with weather reading?
    Can you share a screen-shot with the problem?

    This week, I have been updated the app. Just stops working, I can see that the hour is way behind from the actual date.

      Hi, guys!
      9 months ago we had an idea how to make a handy and a beautiful weather for Android.
      It's time to deliver.
      Meet YoWindow Weather!
      See the attached screen-shots.

      Since I've just registered on XDA, I'm not allowed to post public links.
      The link to download the latest YoWindow 0.89 is in my profile/contact-info/Home Page

      What's so special?
      - Animated landscape reflects the actual weather (sky, wind, fog), time (Sun, Moon) and season (5 states).
      - Motion in time. Swipe the screen to scroll the time forward.
      That's how you watch the weather forecast in YoWindow.
      - YoWindow Live Wallpaper + Widgets - turn Android desktop into a beautiful weather station.
      Tapping on a widget reflects the day/time/location in the wallpaper.

      Mod Edit: Link to the app:
      https://rink.hockeyapp.net/apps/a8f060f7c81e002fb219aa8648b53fb7


      We are going to launch in a two weeks on Google Play.
      If you have an idea or found a problem - let us know.

      Pavel Repkin, YoWindow Weather project founder.

      I just added the link to your OP. Hope it helps :)

      Looks, nice however got a nice bootloop when trying to pen it on the n7 2013 running L. Is it only good up to kk?

      YoWindow is not supporting L, unfortunately so far.
      That's because of a piece of C++ code that crashes by an unknown reason.
      We don't have a device to test L on.
      So that's kind of a problem.
      I hope to take care about it after the release rush is over.
      Thanks for reporting anyway ;)

      I'll give it a try. I'm still looking for the perfect weather app.

      My only deal breaker when it comes to weather apps: Clocks. I hate clock widgets. I hate weather widgets that have clocks on them. I can't understand why they are so prevalent. It's torture.

      There are no clocks so far in YoWindow widgets.
