It was only last week that we showed you a neat and quirky extension for the BottomToolBar jailbreak tweak called Activity-BottomToolBar that, as the name implies, adds an Activity-based display to the BottomToolBar interface. But if you’re a BottomToolBar user who demands more from the parent tweak, then you just might be in luck.
Enter Weather-BottomToolBar, yet another extension for the BottomToolBar tweak to be released by iOS developer XCCiao. And as you might have inferred already by the name and the screenshot example above, this add-on integrates a Weather-centric display into the BottomToolBar interface.
The new Weather-BottomToolBar add-on displays pertinent information about the weather for your current location (as long as location services are enabled for your Weather app). You’ll also notice that its aesthetics are comparable to what you’d expect from iOS’ native Weather app.
In addition to a dynamic background that behaves much like the Weather app itself, the Weather-BottomToolBar interface displays the conditions outside, including your current city, the weather conditions outside, the chance of precipitation, and the temperature along with the high and low for the entire day.
Evidently, Weather-BottomToolBar works alongside Activity-BottomToolBar. Both of the add-ons appear in the screenshot example, with the Weather widget residing above the Activity widget.
This is essentially the same information you’d find on the Today page of your Home screen if you had those widgets enabled, but if you’d enjoy faster access to this information from anywhere in iOS and you own BottomToolBar already, then Weather-BottomToolBar could be a nice way to achieve that.
Weather-BottomToolBar is available as a free download from the Packix repository via your favorite package manager, although you must already own the $1.50 BottomToolBar tweak from the Twickd repository to use it. Best of all, the add-on is made by the same developer who brought us the original tweak, so you can expect optimal performance.
