A Simple Weather plug-in for Today?

I decided to dump TF3D and go the Today route. It seems like WeatherPanel and WeatherWatcher are popular choices for weather, but they both seem a little too much for me (weatherpanel takes too much space).

Can anyone recommend a small and simple weather plugin?
Ideally something light on the resources.

Thanks.

Re: A Simple Weather plug-in for Today?

When you say weatherpanel takes up too much space, do you mean today screen space or memory?

Pocketweather is another good one, but your not getting anything better than WP. In WP all the big stuff like Icons and themes go on internal storage, its very minimal what goes on the device. I'm not sure about the usage rate, but I dont think it takes up much.

As far as screen space, you can select "mini".

Agreed. You can display as much or as little info as you want on WP. You can have something as basic as the current weather conditions w/the next few days forecasts or as detailed as the moon phases and radar images, as well as temps humidity, rain, etc.

Re: A Simple Weather plug-in for Today?

I should have been more clear. When I say WP takes too much space, I mean screen space. WP takes up the width of the screen.
Ideally, I'd like something that is more like a singe icon form factor, with current weather displayed.

I understand that my ideal application may not exist. And I really appreciate all the advice from the community.
