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.

Old Standby This only gives me the news I want. No forced headlines. It's quick to jump to the topic I want to read. Most of my topics are custom.

Weather data is wrong The weather data this app uses is wrong. It's constantly off by at least 5 degrees Celsius at any given time

A buggy pricey version of what Google gives for free. Why would anyone use this bad copy over the actual (and free) Google news and weather app?
