    news and weather widget

    back on froyo as well as gb 4.5.73 I had a google provided (?) widget/app listed as news and weather. it had multiple side scrolling screens, first was weather and then followed by selected news provider/category feeds.

    notes on the latest deodexed gb 4.5.88, I no longer have it. right after flashing the latest gb the widget said it couldn't load, so I guess it's not readily available in this leak version.

    before I try to see if I can rip it from a nandroid back up, any one able to send it my way?

    feeling a bit uninformed...

    Hi

    I downloaded the apk for the news and the apk for the weather. The news is post gb and not what I am looking for. The original news and weather widget seems to be missing with the 588 odexed. This news widget is a updated one, though I prefer the older version better. Any way of getting the old version onto GB.

    Here is a link that shows the original widget.
    Android 2.1 Google News/Weather widget available for download.

    The fixed it and it wasn't broke. I like the old much better.

    Interesting.. I'm on ApeX Alpha 2 GB and there she is.. The old Genie (News and Weather) widget. Running it now actually. What's nice is the app runs as an app as well as a widget. Don't know how it is on battery consumption but it's simple and gets it done. I wish Pulse would consider a simpler widget like that actually. As much as I love the Pulse app, the widgets are a little busy if you're trying to keep the home screens a bit more minimal.
    I need two DX's.. One to try rom's on and one for MIUI because it's THE daily driver for me so I'm not messin' with it.

    the one I used on latest gb leak was from the site I posted above called genie.apk

    I did get admonished in another thread for suggesting to someone else to use an old .apk on a new os, but it works without issue for me and as this is a google written app I believe it has a bit more flexibility than other 3rd party apps

    I got force closes the first time using it, a reboot solved it

    I especially like the weather bit with the scrollable timeline. I've always used it and set the update frequency to like 6 hrs or so, my battery life has been unaffected by this afaik, other things are more of an issue regarding battery. at home I use wifi all day (live in a canyon), but I get at least 16 --> 24+ hrs with heavy --> moderate use on latest gb deodexed. some days my screen is on for 4+ hrs if I can't put the thing down
