Animated Weather Forecast desktop application

Animated Weather Forecast is a software application for Windows that brings weather information to the desktop in the form of self explaining animation – rain, clouds, snow and so on.

Animated Weather Forecast also shows you moon phases, sunrise/sunset time, humidity, wind speed and direction. The lack of description on the various icons is a little disappointing. I have no idea what “71% –18 days” means or “7 high” indicates. Maybe it is because of my lack of familiarity with weather terms, but a small tooltip wouldn’t have killed anybody.


Animated Weather Forecast’s main screen hides most of these info. Just click on the window to pause the animation and reveal them. There are a bunch of customization options including changing of the background with your own image.

The software can fetch current or future weather conditions for more than 50,000 locations over the world, and the reliability of the forecast is ensured by several weather aggregators.

Animated Weather Forecast is available in Free and Pro versions. You can evaluate the Pro version for 15 days, after which it will switch back to the free version.

Other animated weather application: MyFreeWeather and YoWindow.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
