WeatherPanel Now “Looking Good” On HD2

Weather Panel is a fairly popular weather application for Windows Mobile devices and so making it look nice is important, and that is what this is for. This new look was discovered by an XDA member by the name Dunc001. The new look is a great way for people that would like more function out of Sense, but do not want to give up on the great look.

The poster had this to say about it:

Basically, fed up with the lack of information on the Sense weather tab I was looking for a way to click on the weather section of the Home tab and be taken to a much better weather app than the weather tab. Cookies Home Tab obviously offers the ability to select applications to shortcut to from the various Home Tab elements so the click through bit was already taken care of.
Then cam choosing the app, and I tried everything out there – gWeather, GPS Weather Radar, TouchWeather, etc but none of them provided everything I was looking for. Then I found a thread in XDA – http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=563150 – which looked very promising but which ultimately leeds to the creation of a new Sense tab, which obviously you can’t access by clicking on the weather panel in Home tab (without finding and editing Manila paths which I am far too thick to do!). However looking through the thread I managed to ascertain that the weather app element is a home screen plugin called WeatherPanel which turns out to have quite a following (duh!).
I then found another post in the thread which led me to Second Today as an alternative solution to ManilaTodayPage to create a home for WeatherPanel. You can then tag Second Today as the weather app in CHT Editor.

If you need an alternative to what Sense has… You can try the application.
