I'm looking for an app similar to Fahrenheit, that gives a notification badge indication of the current temperature. A problem with Fahrenheit that I have is that it's too slow in updating. I need something that updates the badge at least every 30 minutes (so I don't have to open up the app to get it to refresh).

There are several Weather Apps that perform this function. The one I am currently using (as I live in Canada and it has good Canadian weather support) is Degrees.

You could also try Weather Live or eWeather HD. I'm sure there are many more.

One limitation of those badges, if you live in a part of the world like mine, is lack of negative numbers in the badge. Since I use Celsius, this is an issue even this time of year. :)


The app Weather Live has the ability to show the current forecasted temperature on the application badge.

I haven't tested it myself, but it seems promising. Not free, though.


There are two apps that I know of that put the temperature as a notification badge. Both are free with inapp subscriptions to get rid of advertising

With both of these, you get the badge temperature and the regular notifications and widgets.

    @Thinkr why? It shows up very clearly on the App Store. There is no point in repeating info that wasn’t asked for to begin with Commented Jun 4, 2023 at 21:31

There's a Weather widget that allows you to get the weather forecast (as well as current weather directly to your Home Screen or Lock Screen. This is the middle-sized widget but there's also a large-sized and small-sized ones:

There are also Lock Screen Weather widgets.


You can receive notifications from the Weather app when precipitation and certain severe weather events are forecasted in your current location.
