Unlike other weather apps, QuickWeather does not work by changing your wallpaper.
QW has a very small footprint, is not active when the backlight is off or your device is in bedtime mode and has no lag or battery drain effects on your device. A Quick and Simple glance at your weather!
Disclaimer: Animated Radar is sometimes flaky. This is due to the radar data being obtained from the National Weather Service and their servers are sometimes unreliable. I will try to find a better service for radar data in the future.
Price: Only $1.99!!
