New Premium widgets for iOS
We have added Premium widgets for the Windy iOS app!
Version 37.1.9 launched an anticipated feature in the form of a 1-hour forecast for all three widget types for even more in-depth weather data right on your home screen.
- Premium Hour Forecast Widget
- Premium Detailed Forecast Widget
- Premium Forecast Widget
And that is not all! The update also brings new settings options for appearance and location.
Dark and Light mode
Do you use dark or light mode and wish to match Windy widgets with the set theme, or want to improve the viewing experience in low-light environments?
All forecast Windy widgets (including Premium widgets) are now available with 2 appearance options. To change the appearance, simply long press the widget to access settings and choose the predefined theme -
Widgets newly get location from your current position only, which means the custom position in the app's settings is not considered.
Instead, you can change the location for each widget in the widget's settings, allowing you to have as many widgets as you want for places you care about.
To add the Windy widget to your Home Screen
Make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of Windy.
Touch and hold a widget or an empty area on the device's home screen until the apps jiggle
Tap the Add button (+) in the upper-left corner
Tap on Windy to open the widgets selection
Select widget, and tap (+) Add Widget to confirm
Here is a little overview of Windy widgets in a short video:
Is there a 3 hours premium widget? It would be great if one could see 3 hours with 4 times update intervals.
@lmarion Thank you for suggestion.
@Korina please tell me. Does Android have widgets?
@Eugene-Kaverin Yes, Android have Windy widgets too.
Is the iPhone app available with my premium subscription?@Korina
@CVBG Yes, you can subscribe via App Store, and you can use Premium across all your devices.
@Korina Are premium widgets going to be made available for Android as well as iOS?

@Korina It would be nice to be able to set a truly black background for widgets.
