Meteor is an upcoming jailbreak tweak that brings weather conditions and temperature to your Home screen Weather app icon. Along with the enhancements to the Weather app icon, Meteor lends weather information to the iOS status bar.

If you have a jailbroken iPhone, Then Meteor should certainly be on your Radar. Check out our hands-on video walkthrough of the upcoming tweak for more details.


Once installed, users can head over to the stock Settings app to find Meteor’s preference panel. Inside the tweak’s preferences, you’ll find the obligatory kill switch, along with several customization options for changing the look of the tweak on both the Weather app icon, and in the status bar.

Although changes to Meteor’s settings requires a respring, it’s possible to change the weather readout on both the status bar and the Weather app icon, simply by rearranging the order of the Weather app’s cards. Once you place a card at the beginning, that particular location will be the location used to output Meteor’s pertinent information.

Meteor might remind you of other tweaks like WeatherIcon, and LiveWeatherIcon, but it brings its own unique feature-set to the table. Most notably, Meteor borrows glyphs from the Weather app location itself to provide users with good-looking and accurate weather information.

Meteor is a $1.99 jailbreak tweak, and should be available shortly on Cydia. You can follow its developer on Twitter for more details.
