How to find beautiful Xperia weather widget in app stores?

Can anyone tell how to find the Xperia weather widget in any of the popular app stores / what it's name or developer team is?

I did quite a bit of searching, but cannot find it, as there are literally hundreds of weather apps/widgets which are close, but not quite like the one I had on my Xpreia Tipo.

 

The widget shows slow animations (like the clouds) which I especially loved. Most other weather apps don't have this, nor are they as beautifully designed.  The widget connects to AccuWeather in a browser if you activate the widget, however, it doesn't seem to be an AccuWeather app. There's no corresponding app on the phone at all, so it seems to be really just a widget (not an app). The widget itself is simply called "weather" (not very helpful in the stores).

Thanks Thomas,

I did this search already, and checked 20-30 apps in the play store. No success. There also is a current weather app available by Sony that looks far more graphical and modern, but that is not the one I am looking for. That's why I posted the images to show which widget I meant.

Also made a remark in the google play store, requesting the old widget.

The answer came that a better version of the current, static one will come, yet not the same as the old one. Hmm.

Quoting;

Hi Remko van B.

We have plans to bring back animated 
widgets in the future, they won't be
exactly the same as the old one, but
we hope you'll like the new look. Kind Regards, Xperia Weather Team
