Typographic Weather Widget for Android
After falling in love with the TypoClock widget, XDA forum member kemonozume wanted a weather widget that matched the style of the clock. However, the XDA member couldn’t find one, so decided to develop one himself.
Current features of the weather widget are that you can select your location, select font colour and set semi transparency. Note that colour is set using a hexadecimal colour code.

Typographic Weather Widget is also available to download in the Market.
