NLWeer is a simple open-source and privacy-friendly Dutch weather app for Android (5.0 or newer). It is free both as in free lunch and as in freedom of speech. The code is MIT licensed. Weather information is provided by KNMI or optionally by Buienradar, see the about screen in the app for more information.

This is what it looks like:

NLWeer KNMI rain radar NLWeer navigation menu NLWeer KNMI forecast

NLWeer settings NLWeer navigation menu (bottom) NLWeer Buienradar prediction

  • It does not nor never will display commercial advertisements
  • It does not require any permissions (except for GPS if explicitly requested)
  • It is very lightweight and battery friendly
  • It does not require the Google Play Services (e.g. it will run on LineageOS without Google Play or microG)

Features of NLWeer:

  • Includes weather maps as well as a written weather report
  • Includes weather information from multiple sources
  • Three options for localisation (shown as a customizable marker): manual lon/lat coordinates, mobile service provider, or GPS
  • Includes a precipitation prediction graph on your current location
  • Languages: English, Dutch, French
