It’s not uncommon for folks to make plans around the weather; this is especially the case when said plans involve outdoor activities. That said, wouldn’t it be more convenient if Apple’s stock Weather app made it just a little bit easier to see the upcoming dates next to each day in the weather forecast?
If you answered yes, then we have no doubt in our minds that a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called Weather Plus by iOS developer Hao Nguyen will appeal to you.
Weather Plus was quickly conceived in response to a request published on /r/jailbreak, and as you can see for yourself in the screenshot example above, the tweak adds detailed date information to each line of the weather forecast so that you can better plan your week.
While Apple’s Weather app traditionally displays the day, it doesn’t usually display the date. If you often fumble and get your dates confused, then this is a wonderful option for keeping your ducks in a row.
Once installed, Weather Plus adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app where you can configure a few options to your liking:
Here, you can:
- Toggle Weather Plus on or off on demand
- Choose your preferred date format
- Choose your preferred date row styling
In case you were interested in the date formatting and row styling options, here’s a quick glance:
The developer includes an Apply button at the top right of the preference pane to save any changes you make on demand.
We understand that not everyone needs these types of visual aids, but if you’re like the original requester and find this functionality useful, then it might be worth checking out.
Weather Plus is available as a free download from Hao Nguyen’s beta repository via your preferred package manager and supports jailbroken iOS 10, 11, 12, and 13 devices. What’s more is the tweak is open source on the developer’s GitHub page.
If you’re not already using the aforementioned repository, then you can add it to your package manager of choice with the following URL:
