    News and Weather Widget

    As everyone is, I'm new to the TB. Came from a Droid X that I had running on Rubix. One of my favorite widgets was the "news and weather" widget. I could size it as I wanted and make it fit on my home screen as desired. Loved the scrolling news information and various catagories to choose from. I could select weather or no weather information.

    Is there a way to load this on the TB? I would love to have it.

    Thanks

    I looked for it and can't find it in the market. Too many tv stations advertising their own widgets I got tired of scrolling through them all. Bummer..cuz I really liked that app.

    The installed weather app sucks...can't even find the city of sparks Nevada.

    For weather I use Weatherbug Elite and like it a lot. I really want the news only widget from "news and weather" that I used previously in my Rubix load on the X. I'm wondering if we need to be AOSP to use it?

    Can someone chime in?

    Yes, that is the one I was looking for. Thanks.

    I downloaded it, moved it to the SD card and loaded it with Astro. When I attempt to open it force closes. Actually never opens. Bummer.

    Anyone know of a version tht will run on the TB?

    It was on my Rubix ROM and I was very happy to get it back. Does anyone understand why it won't run on the TB or stock X?
