Stormfly brings you live weather information in the form of beautifully designed HD wallpaper graphics.
Stormfly brings you live weather information in the form of beautifully designed HD wallpaper graphics. Based on your set location, Stormfly will look up your current weather condition, download the matching weather graphic and display the image as your device's wallpaper. The wallpaper will automatically update and change appropriately at your set interval and at different times of day, such as sunrise/sunset, daytime and night. The images are static, meaning they are not animated. They are also not all stored on your device. Why do we do this? We do this in order to keep both the size of the app and resource usage to a bare minimum. Worried about bandwidth usage? We've got you covered! Stormfly will cache the last 10 wallpaper images on your device. When it is set to check for new weather information, it will check the local cache for the correct wallpaper image prior to attempting to download it.
Would you like to view the current weather condition? We have provided you with two means of doing just that. The first way is to simply double tap on your home screen to view a brief popup, or toast, containing the current weather condition and temperature. You can change your temperature readout preferences between fahrenheit and celsius within the settings. The other way requires a specific setup on your device. If you have both Android 4.2+ and the DashClock app installed, you will automatically get a new DashClock extension. What makes the Stormfly extension different from the default one? Honestly, not much. The most noticeable difference will be the icons. The default extension uses only a handful of different icons. Our version includes an icon for each weather condition that will accurately portray it day or night.
- Day, night and sunrise/sunset graphics to ensure the wallpaper matches your current weather condition.
- Optional setting to display temperature in either Fahrenheit and Celsius.
- Double tap your screen to view current weather info.
- Coming soon, celestial events!

What's New in This Release:- Minor fixes. Added new retry code. In the event that matching images aren't found, the app will try again three times prior to alerting you in order to account for any possible connection issues at the time of updating. Changed out the "cloud toggles" for standard checkboxes.
