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.

Change it back I have the older version on my other device, it was great. I have the updated version on my new phone, it's so stupid. It can't pick up any input location. And the precipitation is gone! How dumb is that?! That was the best thing about this app. The only reason I've downloaded it on 3 devices is the ability to slide the bar and see the chance of rain at different times in the day. Change it back and you'll have 5 stars.
