    Google News Widget Problems?

    I have no proof this is a Froyo problem, but it SEEMS ever since 2.2 my Google News Widget says "news unavailable" and it is stalled there after working fine for several hours. The I have to refresh and everything is then fine.

    Am I the only one? this is the best news widget IMO. I'd to lose it.

    I'm using it currently with no problems, though I'm also using the transparent version with no weather display.

    Ah - I just uninstalled and re-installed and it's fine. That's never happened.

    Harrellj - which weather app are you using that is transparent? The Incredible doesn't come from one but I installed the genie one (standard news and weather) from my old Droid.

    Been having this problem intermittently as well. Will try the uninstall/reinstall.

    Its the Genie widget itself. XDA had a metamorph with various transparent widgets. When I add the news and weather widget, I went with the news only option. I am using Beautiful Widgets too.

    To uninstall, you go into Settings --> Applications. Locate "News and Weather Widget"...then uninstall it.

    To reinstall, you need download it:
    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ie-widget.html
    (look in this thread for the file)

    Once downloaded, you can install the APK file from your SD card by clicking on it in a file manager (e.g., Astro, Root Explorer, etc) or from the download list directly.
