A quick review of the best Weather Vista sidebar gadgets
As announced, in the upcoming weeks i will be reviewing the best Vista gadgets, and today i would like to start by looking into some extra cool weather gadgets you can easily incorporate into your sidebar.
So here are my best 4 Weather gadgets:
This beautiful easy-to-configure gadget displays local weather forecast and severe weather alert information on your sidebar. For some reason the city locator doesn’t find Tel Aviv (the large city i live nearby), but i still like this one.
This nice gadget displays live weather conditions for anywhere in the world on your Sidebar. Delivers detailed forecasts, radar, weather cameras, and severe weather alerts from any of WeatherBug’s 8,000 Tracking Stations. The Extended Forecast link is currently broken, but i am sure that this will be fixed ASAP.
3. The WeatherEye Gadget for Vista
Although a bit large, this is a nice and functionally rich gadget. I encountered a few bugs in the city search, but i am convinced they will be fixed. In case you have available space in your sidebar, this is definitely a gadget you should consider.
IMHO, this is the best looking weather gadget. Among its features:Up-to-date severe and winter weather alerts, Current Conditions (worldwide), 5-day forecasts (worldwide), Instant access to weather videos, Severe weather alerts (U.S. locations). The only drawback i found is the lack of tooltips, which makes the initial configuration process a bit annoying.
So what are your preferred Vista gadgets?
