    How is it going,

    I picked up my 'rental' RAZR last week as my OG was on its last leg and wasn't always allowing me to accept calls. In moving, I ran into an issue.

    The native RAZR news application (in my opinion) SUCKS. I loved how the OG Droid News/Weather gave a few headlines in the topics (Sports, US, Worldwide, Entertainment, Science/Tech, Etc.) you chose, from a variety of news sources. Setting up the RAZR app to pull from just specific websites (which then gives you every article about whatever topic you chose) is a pain and is just too specific.

    Is there an app on the market that is comparable to the OG News/Weather Application? Is there an .apk on the internet somewhere that will allow me to install the OG News/Weather?

    Thanks for your help

    Why worry about one if it is a rental?

    If your familiar with 7zip and roms you could get the OG droid's news app and install it.

    I agree

    I love my razr but hate the news widget. I loved the one on my droid2 any way to get on similar to that? I've never rooted or done anything like that.
