Fans of the iPhone MIUI should be happy to hear that Beta 1 of MIUI Weather has been released to the public, and can now be downloaded in APK form. It looks every bit as beautiful as what we've come to expect from MIUI, and is done in a style to match other MIUI offerings (namely, the browser, ROM, and clock).


The app does have geolocation, but users need to download different APKs depending on their region - for example, there's an APK specifically for Europe, and there are 5 for the US (broken up alphabetically). Aside from that, the only real "drawback" is that some users may need to manually push a .DB to their device if they're having issues with force closes.


To download, head over to the XDA thread and pick the appropriate country/state. For help and support, you can visit the official MIUI Weather support thread, and for details, check out the MIUI Weather site.

    How is this different from Beautiful Widgets? They look pretty similar from the screenshots. Does one have features the other doesn't?

    • Kane

      Well, it's free for one.

      • Duffin

        Well, true, but I've already paid for Beautiful Widgets, so I'm wondering if there's a reason for me to try this out or if it's basically the same app with a slightly different look.

        • Aaron Gingrich

          Different look, made to match MIUI. And the "share with friends" feature.

    • Duffin

      Ohh, MIUI is a ROM. I didn't realize that, never heard of it before. Now it makes a bit more sense.

    Does this not update weather via GPS?

    hi there, just wanted to drop a line.

    please change your source link to http://www.miui-dev.com/2011/03/09/miui-weather-released-free-for-all/ (miui-dev)
    I feel it is more appropriate to point to the original source instead of the xda thread that also directs people to miui-dev for support/questions on the weather app.

    Looks great to the point where I almost installed the app. But can anybody tell me qhy on earth a weather app wants my personal info and to "directly call telephone numbers?"


  • TRH

    It won't install on my Droid X. Downloads fine, refuses to install.

  • Hello!

    Why does it need to be able to read contact data, call cell phone numbers and display system-level alerts? Seems fishy.
