Windy Gets New Lock Screen iOS Widget

Please try restarting your iPhone and reinstall Windy. Sometimes it happens that iOS does not load new widgets right away, it has to index them first (this also happens with classic widgets).
May I ask if you see the satellite widgets in the iOS widgets gallery?
I had to reinstall app, after that I see widgets on lockscreen. But there are no premium sattelite widgets visible in settings.
Thanks for the quick implementation! Worked after reinstalling the app, widgets look nice!
Solved, widgets work after reinstall, sattelite images had to be added via + button not as windy widget.

Doesn’t work for me after installing iOS 16 on my iPhone 11. I can add the app to my home screen but it just keeps telling me that it is not supported and that I should install the app for iOS 14.
That’s a pity as I like Windy and was a Premium member but from now on my go to will be the Met Office app as at least it works on my Lock Screen.
EDIT. After a false start installing the ‘other’ Windy app I finally managed to get the app on my Lock Screen by adding a widget, not through the customisation option - which still gives the message above btw.
However, all that gets displayed is a message that I should upgrade to Premium!
Back to the Met Office app for my daily weather updates …

@errol-1 Now solved - you need to use the '+' option to choose Windy in the apps list and then hold the Windy icon to choose between premium and non-premium options.

who cares about iOS. I want to see this for Android, the most used mobile OS in the world with 70% market share!!!
It is great to see Windy as one of the first to provide widgets for the Lock Screen in iOS. Thank you guys. The information and customization are great. However I would suggest they need improvement in terms of readability. Reducing the amount of information they contain and using bigger and bold fonts might help. Have a look at the Apple Weather widgets. Same goes for the Windy complications for the Apple Watch.
@gmtc Thank you.
Readability was one of our concerns when we saw the real use case. There might be updates in the future including better readability, or another widget with less information.
wow i like it

With regards to the readability response, and inline with gmtc’s comment, I would love to see selectable round widgets. Such as, one with the wind speed and direction tied to my current location. Hopefully that will be one of the “future updates”.
