    Thats not 'Miui Weather'. It could be 'Beautiful Widgets' but I I have never seen the date on top like that or it could be a modified 'Fancy Widget'

    Do you have any screen shots of the MIUI weather app?

    MIUI weather widgets. Now these are truly beautiful.

    While the time and date reflect local time and date, the widgets show Beijing's weather conditions.

    So this isnt worth posting really :) still not working internationally? Shame... will mention it again to them and see if they feel happy to change it for all users.

    I'll make it clear we will translate the strings.

    It was worth posting as I was asking the question, unfortunately I was wrong.

    Let's hope they make it available for people outside China soon!

    What if we hacked the weather app the same we Google Maps was hacked for outside-US navigation? Simply replace the data from the Chinese website with data from, say, AccuWeather. Intercept the requests so the app 'thinks' it's downloading info from that site, but not really it's being gathered from a US site and put in whatever format the app accepts the data in. The app has a database of cities and lat/long coordinates for them. We could either inject other cities into the db, which has been done successfully (though it results in an error, as the Chinese website doesn't have weather data for other cities), or, more simply, delete everything but one fake city in the db for all lat/long coordinates, and redirect the request for weather data to a local file containing information on the user's actual current location, built by a simple script.

    Am I making any sense, or just rambling?

    This makes perfect sense. I just started tinkering with it. The city db is insane, might be more work than really nessesary, however in the end it would be worth it to have a completely working miui port.
