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.

This is so much better than.... Smartnews AND the old Google Weather and News I used to have. You have a new fan and I will use this as my main Weather and News for years!

Getting better How long is this app going to be in beta status, will there ever be an RTM version?

Fantastic This app is great for people like me who can't be bothered buying newspapers and the "flicking through" has been done already.

Simple. Powerful. Amazing. Works almost exactly like the old Genie app...and then some. Displays more items per topic and draws from a wider variety of sources than Google's very corporate-focused version ever did.
