    Hey all.

    i have Weather and Toggle widget on my DX and i like it but i was wondering...

    is there an available option on this app that allows the wallpaper to be a live version of the weather (say, if its raining, then the entire background of my phone will be raining)



    and if WaT doesnt have this option, do you know of an app that does?

    weather-lite live wallpaper

    see title this is in the market and free. i never got beutiful widgets live wallpaper to work other than lite and dark and move sun and moon no weather ever showed with any launcher.

    This wallpaper works with real time weather and is pretty acurate. I think it is what your looking for and youll enjoy it!


    edit:This is on my droid, dont know if it works with droid x but dont see why not.

    Beautiful Widgets Live Wallpaper only has full functionality if you have purchased Beautiful Widgets. It works great and shows animated rain/lightning during storms. Can't wait to see what winter brings. I have had the live wallpaper installed for a few months now and it has not affected my battery life much.

    Weather bug elite also has a local radar live wallpaper, although I prefer beautiful widgets live wallpaper unless a storm is coming.

    I didn't know that this was out there until this thread. I installed it and now have a great alternative to use. Awesome looking!

    I don't think so hook. I have had BW for quite some time. When I downloaded BW LWP it said something about verifying that I have purchased BW and then just worked. You may want to try uninstalling and re-installing the LWP.

    Hook - there is now an update to both BW and BW LWP which uses Accu-Weather rather than Google. While setting it up I noticed in the BW Configure menu there was an option to "Use with Live Wallpaper". The update forces you to delete and re-add the widget and re-select the LWP. Hopefully when you download the update you can get it to work. Good Luck!

    Beautiful widgets does this. Place the widget on your homescreen, and when you short tap the widget, you can set it to show the full scree weather forecast... If its sunny, it will show a blazing sun, cloudy will scroll clouds along the screen, rain, thunder and lightening.. its very cool

    I'm not seeing an update in the Market. Where is this update coming from?

    Edit: I went into BW in the Market and when I tapped on it I saw the update.

    Anyone know of a way to put the BW widget - or even the widgets icon on the homepage? Im sick of have to find an open spot on my homepage, longpress and then go to widgets.

    For those of who have not done so, I suggest NOT upgrading your BW. The update doesnt work like the older version of BW. Does anyone know of a way to go back to the older version?

    The problem is the older version doesn't work. Period. The weather is wrong all the time and you''ll never have a fix for it.

    This isn't the first time BW has shifted gears and changed things around. True, this doesn't work like the older version but it appears to be working.

    Edit. Beautiful Live Weather is now working.
