1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I think I've seen this posted elsewhere, but maybe some new eyes will see it. I just upgraded from my old Droid I to the Maxx. One of my fave Apps on the old phone was the news and weather app that I could customize and get news I wanted, plus weather wherever I was.

    I can still use it on my old Droid if I have a WiFi connection, but I'm not in the mood to carry two 'units' around just to read the news I want. Is there a way I can 'slide' it off my old machine onto my new Maxx?

    Or, am I as I suspect, screwed???? :mad:

    As Sheldon Cooper would say, I think you're on a shaft surrounded by an incline plane.

    Uh, hate to sound ignorant, but...

    Thanks for the link, subsynth. I scurried over there and downloaded it onto my computer. Read where folks really like this app. But, my question is, where do I put it on my Razr, and how do I make it run? I know - duh - but I'm just not sure where to install it.

    I hooked the phone up to my computer and pulled up all the folders, but nosing around in all of them just didn't wave a sign at me saying "In here, Pal!"

    Any suggestions? Thanks. :hail:

    Simply store on the SD Card, install, and run. You can also install it as a widget.

    Even easier is to simply click the link on your phone and download and install directly like I just did.

    THIS is a News and Weather app that makes sense. Wonder why they didn't include it in the latest 'phones'...

    +1 for Genie (aka "News and Weather" app on many Moto phones)!

    Closest thing to it is Pulse.

    Why did Google remove the News & Weather app from Android?

    I used this app every day. Why did Google remove it?
