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.

Works... but I have been fairly happy with the news app.. but have gotten no response from emails sent to the developer and the contact form on the website doesn't work as of 3.17.15
