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.
