At the risk of asking what may be for most of you power Android users a trivial question, I was hoping to get feedback on which weather widget you recommend on your home screen. I put the stock News and Weather one in the widget gallery on the home screen - very simple, fine for me - but I don't like having a black rectangular box on top of my beautiful Cuben wallpaper. I couldn't find a transparent setting, so I went searching for a different weather widget. There seem to be so many of them and everyone has a favorite on other Android devices. I kind of like the transparent simple Android clock that is shipped on the home screen, but I'm not stuck on using it if I find something that looks better - and I see that a lot of these weather widgets include clocks.

Just reaching out to get other peoples recommendations and hopefully let people show off their weather widget on the Google Edition phone. Thanks.

Eye in Sky Weather and Fancy Widgets are the 2 I've used and they both have a transparent setting....I'm sure there's plenty of others

Have a try on My Weather Widget. It gets Yahoo Weather info with 5 days forecast. Just searching myweatherwidget on Play and you should be able to find it.

An app called transparent clock and weather by droid 27. I like it a lot. Have it on my S4 Google edition and nexus 7. I will post a screen shot for you.

I have selected a little tint on my window but you can get it 100% clear if you like and you can pick your clock fonts and weather fonts.

It's getting weird how similar we like our devices set up lol, I use that same weather clock.

Love the wallpaper! Where can I find it?

That is the default for Next Launcher. I installed the free Next Launcher and the wallpaper stayed after I uninstalled it. I have Wallpaper Saver installed so that wallpaper is still available to me even if I change wallpapers.

Thanks for all the replies. Great suggestions. I thought I'd download a few suggestions and try them. However, when I try to download Transparent Clock and Weather by Droid 27, I get an Error - Package file is invalid. It has over a million downloads so am I just having bad luck? Eye in Sky downloaded fine.
