    I'm moved from a Droid 1 to an X.

    After the 2.1 update on the D1, they addede a little News & Weather Widget. Page one was weather, then you could page thru additional news feeds of your choosing.

    The nice thing was you could get very specific as to what you wanted to follow, such as a specific company.

    At first I thought this little widget was weak, but it grew on me after a while.

    Now the X has a different News widget, but you cannot enter a specific company.

    Is there a way to move the widget from the D1 to the X? Is it just an .APK file. If so, which one?

    Thanks ....

    I agree, that was a terrific app on the d1 2.1

    Ive wished several times that I had that app on my x.

    If we can't have it, is there anything close that is like it? Doesn't have to have weather, but I liked the custom topic news feature.

    There is a Motorola NEWS Widget, but it's a little different. I like the other one better. If we knew the file name, I'm sure it would still work.

    Interesting. I installed it, but it's a different news reader than the one included in 2.1
