Even before smartphones became an everyday feature, carriers such as AT&T were looking at ways to get info about the weather to our handsets. Now, no manufacturer would be crazy enough to ship a device without a fancy weather widget to let us know when it was going to rain. Widgets are great and all but, after a while they get a little boring – besides we can always look at the sky to see what the weather’s like. That’s why we need something a little more exciting, something to give us a hints about what the weather is going to do, without weighing us down with boring stats and figures. Is Seasons Weather HD that app? Well, read on to find out.

Description: Seasons Weather HD is yet another Live Wallpaper that aims to tell us what the weather is doing but, this time around things are a little different. While this Live Wallpaper delivers the weather, it does so in a lighthearted manner that will help take us away to a sort of fantasy world within our smartphones. Thanks to the painting-like visuals and the majestic airship that floats on by, Seasons Weather HD presents us a fun outlook of the weather, as well as making our homescreens look cool and unique.

How it Works: There are two versions to Seasons Weather HD, a free version and a paid version. The paid version offers more customization and the ability to make the wallpaper your own by tweaking things such as the airship’s speed and more. As with all Live Wallpapers, you’ve got to find out how to set the wallpaper on your device, and then pick it from the list:

2013-05-27 11.56.10

Once selected you can take a look at how it’ll look:

2013-05-27 11.56.16

You can adjust the settings from here as well. If you’re using the free version, you’ll get a peak at what the paid version can offer you:

2013-05-27 11.56.23

After that you can see it in action on your device:

2013-05-27 11.56.38

Of course, the Wallpaper will display different scenes in different weather:

With the paid version, you can get access to info such as the temperature:

Opinion: Being able to predict the Weather seems to be one of the biggest obsessions of the human race, and technology has enabled us to do that in ways never before thought possible. Now, we can quickly check the weather from the devices in our pockets. That doesn’t mean that we don’t want a little flare to go with it though. Fantasy settings are always nice, and make for unique homescreens and this actually serves a purpose – it tells us the weather. This is one of the more appealing weather Live Wallpapers I’ve used.
