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.

Absolutely infuriating! Rubbish. THIS USED TO BE SO GOOD ..NOW POOH.I spent 30 minutes trying to find a town it had heard of...IT HASN'T HEARD OF SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA! Nor Tweed Heads, nor Anywhere! I even tried with full fine location turned on to automatically locate me..nothing. Back to manual it's never heard of Los Angeles or London either. I COULD NOT FIND A CITY ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD THAT IT WAS FAMILIAR WITH. the old old version that comes with a Samsung S3000 has no ads and no problems but this version has been rendered useless.
