Make Your Android Wallpaper Depict The Weather

If the standard weather widget is a bit boring for you, you can use our favourite Android automation tool, Tasker, to display weather conditions using your wallpaper.

It isn’t so much a “live wallpaper” as it is a slideshow that changes with the weather conditions. When it’s cloudy, your wallpaper will show a cloudy landscape photo and when it’s clear, it’ll show a clear weather photo instead. You can even set it to stop after your battery reaches a certain level, if you’d rather not spend it on the slideshow.

Check out the entry below at the Tasker Wiki, which contains step-by-step instructions and a set of images to get you started. Of course, you can always find your own images on the net if you don’t like them, or even take your own.
