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.

App works, if you're from USA The app does work however only if you want US based news. I tried auto location and manually setting it (UK).

Not working. It is always asking to specify your location, but doesn't find any, not even New York: so no news at all!
