It has been more than a month since the Samsung Galaxy S5 was unveiled. The device can hit the stores near you any moment. However, before you hold the Galaxy S5 in you hands, you can enjoy its wallpapers, ringtones and apps on your current device. The Galaxy S5 will be featuring a new version of its TouchWiz with many improvements and features.
Alongside many new apps, UI changes and features, the Galaxy S5 also brings a new version of the AccuWeather Clock widget. Well there is nothing special about new apps and widgets on a new smartphone, but if those goodies are ported to work on other devices, it becomes a thing of wider interest.
Albe95 from the XDA forums has successfully ported the Galaxy S5 AccuWeather widget to work on older Galaxy devices like the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3. The new weather widget has a flat background and a plain look. While the options available under AccuWeather Widget settings are pretty much the same, there is one good option that most of us always longed for. Yes, the new weather app lets you set the lever of transparency for the weather widget.
If you own a Galaxy phone or tablet device and have root privileges on it, you can install the Galaxy S5 AccuWeather Widget on your device. We have tested the ported weather widget on the Note 3 and Galaxy S4 successfully. If your phone had HD or Full HD display, try it and it might work too.
- A rooted Galaxy device.
