Make Your Android Wallpaper Depict The Weather

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.

  • I’ve actually set up this (or a similar profile for the same result) – problem with this profile is that it’s dependant on an american weather website using zip codes to define the location – not very helpful in Australia. You can really use any website that has RSS weather available, but it does require some knowledge of how variables work in Tasker.

    • Hi Sam, I’m having the same problem as you. Can you email me your profile so I can set it up for myself. I been trying to get some rss feeds to work, but it’s driving me crazy.

      Thanks Vince
