  2. Click on "Weather" at the left menu of the App Library and choose one of the available Weather Apps. There are many options to choose from. Below is a quick overview of some of the options:
    • Small Screen Zones: These Apps are ideal for placement in corners of the screen, leaving most of the screen space available for other content. The Simple Weather App shows just the current temperature and weather condition. The Small Weather App displays a three day forecast in slideshow mode. The Modern Weather Forecast App highlights the current temperature and the next three days of forecast in a row below.
