Default Nexus One Weather/News Widget for Incredible

I found this apk from another site so If anybody wants a nexus one weather/news widget I attached it here. It works with the Incredible. You just need to put the apk in the sd card, download AndExplorer from the market and install it.

guys you dont really need to download it to your PC. Just click the link from your phone and as long as you allow 3rd party downloads it will download directly to your phone. Click this link from your phone for the download

Good to know, thanks.

What's so special about this one anyway? The stock HTC one (although buggy at times) looks much nicer.

The Nexus One weather widget is more convenient, IMO, since it gives you a nice graph display of hourly temperatures and precip chance %s. Plus, it's really nice to have the top news stories from numerous major news sources consolidated into a couple of different lists like 'top stories', 'sports', etc.

Thanks for that. Is it any more draining on the battery? Can it be set to certain intervals for auto updates like the stock HTC one?

Who else here is using the N1 weather widget? Just curious.

This app doesn't work well for me. Generally I like the app, but it seems like if the phone isn't awake for the update it skips it, so when you wake up the phone, it will have the wrong temperature data.

I love this app... not necessarily for the widget, but the app itself. The graph with temperatures and precipitation percents is the most helpful weather app I've found. Also, it is nice to have a bunch of news together in one place sorted by category. And I like being able to create my own categories too

just download the file to the phone, will save from having to scour the market. i couldn't find it in the market either, so i just gave up. awesome widget, though. have been looking for something decent that scrolls and refreshes news. the ny times widget just stayed on 1 story unless i hit the little around, that was pointless. but it's working fine, droid inc.

For those looking for it in the market, just download Dropbox and put this in your dropbox folder. Voila you can run the apk from your phone through dropbox.

I've had this widget since April. I use it mainly for the news. It gathers news from Google. I like it.

Edit: To the best of my knowledge this app is not available in the AppMarket.

There's a newer version of this knocking around. This is 1.1.7 RC6, but there's a 1.2.02 RC2 also available if you search a bit. Not quite sure what the difference is or whether it's any better though.

So Ive been using this for awhile and have noticed that as of yesterday, the top stories do not update any longer. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a newer stable build someone can point me too?

Thanks.

P.S. Right now I'm using Version 1.1.7 RC6(PROD)

Same setup for me.

How many Top Stories is yours displaying today? Mine used to be full, to empty. Today its only showing 3 Top Stories. Weird man.

No task killers running at all by the way.

Anyone that can maybe recommend a widget similar to this one? I'm having strange issues of late and was looking for a replacement.
