AeroWeather: Change Windows Vista and 7’s Aero Color According to Weather Conditions
AeroWeather is a small free utility created by SpikeX which sits in background, retrieves the temperature or current conditions for your location, and will then set the Windows Aero color based on the temperature.
This is a really neat utility if you're the kind of person that wants to know what the temperature is just by looking at the Windows UI, or... if you can't decide on which Aero color to use, and would prefer it if it changed during the course of the day.
Temperature-based color changes:
- Minimum and Maximum values let you define your own range of colors
- Maximum temperature (or higher) is always red
- Minimum temperature (or lower) is always purple
- Color is calculated based on minimum and maximum values
- Fahrenheit or Celsius can be selected.
Condition-based color changes:
- UI is grey if it's cloudy, blue if it's sunny, white if it's snowing, dark grey if it's raining, etc
- Dims the Aero colors when the sun sets (retrieves sunset time from weather server). Colors appear dimmer and less vibrant
- Brightens them when the sun rises the next day
AeroWeather requires Windows Vista or Windows 7 with Windows Aero enabled. This software is designed to work with the "glass" effect in Windows Vista and Windows 7, and it will not work unless Windows Aero is enabled.
You'll need Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installed in your system to be able to use it.
