Geometric Weather

A lightweight, powerful, open-source Material Design weather app.
New in version 3.013_fdroid
  • Bug fixed. - Duplicate alert notifications
Geometric Weather is a free and open-source Android weather app.
This build flavor has all proprietary dependencies and related code stripped out to make it eligible for inclusion on F-Droid.

In the app, you'll find:

  • Real-time temperature

  • Daily forecasts up to 15 days, and hourly forecasts for the next 24 hours

  • Air quality and allergen information

  • Severe weather and precipitation alerts


The app has a strong focus on design, with a simple, clean UX, smooth animations, and Material Design all over, plus lots of customizability:

  • Automatic dark theme

  • Custom icon themes

  • Large selection of home screen widgets for at-a-glance information

  • Live wallpaper


Current supported weather providers in F-Droid flavor:

  • AccuWeather

  • OpenWeatherMap

  • Météo France


This app requests a number of permissions; some required, some optional.

Required permissions:

  • Network (ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE, ACCESS_WIFI_STATE, INTERNET): Allows the app to fetch weather data from providers over the Internet

  • Background updates (RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED, WAKE_LOCK, FOREGROUND_SERVICE, SET_ALARM): Allows the app to refresh weather data in the background

  • Tile (EXPAND_STATUS_BAR): Allows the app to launch itself from Quick Settings



Optional permissions:

  • Location (ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION, ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION, ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION): Allows the app to show weather in your current location

  • Storage (READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE, WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE): Allows the app to set the live weather wallpaper and/or widgets on some devices

  • Ignore battery optimizations (REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS): Prevents the app from being killed in the background. Potentially more reliable method for fetching background weather data on some devices

  • Read phone state (READ_PHONE_STATE): Required by an app dependency: not actually used, but can't be removed. It's okay to never enable this.
