News & Weather (beta)

News & Weather (beta)


A simple easy-to-use app that keeps you updated with the latest news and local weather information. Provides listings of latest news headlines, up-to-date weather info, and a snazzy home screen widget. Heavily inspired by Google's News & Weather "genie widget" app.

We've adopted the incremental open-source philosophy to "release early and release often". DO NOT install if "beta" software makes you cry or gives you panic attacks.

Oh, these guys. ...... Great app when it works, which is never. BETA = FOREVER BROKEN. Slackest dev(s) in Play Store with unprecedented uppity attitude. Go ahead, read this app's description. Apparently my review is so honest that someone somewhere had to edit it. wait, what was that? don't be..evil? MOST RECENT UPDATE: Awnry updates the wrong widgets. IDIOT/S.

It's passable I CAN'T select my own city. Why can't I choose where I really live? No option to do that. Widget is N/A most of the time, no good info...fix and I'll rate better. Might just uninstall

Nice but Four stars because when I use another app or on sleep mode of phone (screen off), the widget should stop displaying next news headline but it seems it doesn't.
