    I'm having a problem where the news app is opening itself on a random basis. I find this especially odd because before this started happening I never used it. It will pop up while I'm in another app or I'll lock the screen while on one app (with the news app closed)and when I come back and unlock the screen, the news app is there sitting open in the forefront. This was even more confusing before I let it stay open long enough that it updated and fetched feeds because it was just a blank white screen.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions on how I can solve it? Thanks in advance!

    Shot in the dark here. Settings: applications: running services. find something running pertaining to that app and stop it.

    Thanks for the Suggestion, but they were unfruitful. I went in and could find nothing related tot eh news app. Then I decided that I don't really care about the news app and tried to uninstall it. The button was greyed out so I tried force-closing it and the button was still greyed out, guess they don't let you install the buggy P.O.S. Less than 30 minutes later it opens itself again.

    Do you have any other things that might fix this, or any suggestions on where else I might seek aid?

    Eager for an answer myself on this one. Not only does it self open, but it never updates either no matter how I set the update interval.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one experiencing this problem, hopefully that means a fix will be found?

    So, there was no widget, but I did get it fixed by unchecking the "update when opened" option. For some reason that also makes the app open itself.

    I had this problem and it was screwing up my Alarm Clock!!! Whenever my alarm went off it would open the news app and cut-off the alarm, effectively muting it!

    I disabled the news 'synch' in the app settings, and I'll see if that fixes it...

    I am having the same problem with my news app. I won't open it but it pops up all the time. When I do want to use it it will show that there are new articles but won't ever open the articles when I try to view them...
    Pretty annoying that an app. that doesn't work won't stop popping up. Arg.
    Any fix that works?
