Beautiful Widgets goes 5.1

Lot of things have changed since the brand new version of Beautiful Widgets. And we are continuously working to improve your application.

This update brings new features and improvements. Among those new features, we are proud to announce that you’ll be able to choose another weather provider. You willl have now the option to choose between AccuWeatherand Weather Underground. This way, you’ll be able to use the provider that suits you better.

Lots of users ask us to add an option to get rid of the geolocation. This is now possible to use only the manual location you have entered on your Saved List Location.

Another nice feature we add is Lifestyles on the Forecast Screen. This feature, available when using the AccuWeather service provider, shows you different ratings that can help you to plan outdoor activities (Jogging, barbecue, fishing, etc…).

Lifestyles help you to plan your outdoor activities

New widgets are also available on this update. Let’s focus on the Barebone widget (6×1 or 6×2). These ones are designed for tablets. Three forecast icons are coming in addition to the weather icon.

We also add an option for all users who want to join our Beta Channel. When we’ll launch beta period, it will be very simple for you to change your version and test all the new functionnalities we want to add in our Application. A simple way to help us keeping the application on the top.
