Re: So where's the News & Weather widget?
Google's really pissing me off with the apps they are killing. Lost my most favored news & weather widget when I traded my HTC Evo for a Galaxy S3, then found out they're killing Google Reader, the best RSS app out there. Bastards . . . and I used to love them a bunch.
Anyway, these guys -- Awnry Software -- have nearly nailed a replacement for News & Weather. It may even be a little better, as my old widget did not refresh properly all the time and this one does. It includes ALL the functionality I loved, including the weather graph and customizable news topics. It currently only comes in a free version with some fairly unobtrusive ads at the bottom. After about a week or two of use, I emailed the developer to see what it would cost me to ditch the ads. They don't have a paid version yet, but hopefully soon.
If you still miss this widget/app, I think these guys will brighten your day.
