    Hello. I've got the same problem as you with me HTC Desire! I normally use the BBC news for the main widget, and it doesn't seem to open but if I change to SKY news as my main widget it works fine. It's annoying :(

    Does anyone know when this is going to be fixed - mine stopped working a couple of days ago. The annoying thing is that if I change from the large news widget to the smaller one it works ok but I don't like it as much. Cheers.

    I'm on a HTC Desire HD.
    I have the News widget set up on one of my home screens.
    It worked fine for a week, then it simply stopped getting any updates. I've tried removing and putting back the widget, and removing the rss feeds and putting in new ones. nothing seems to work.
    It simply wont synchronise with any servers.
    If I use the News & Weather app that works, but not the News app.
    The app I'm having trouble with is the one provided by HTC. The android News and Weather works, but I don't like the widget as much.

    I have unloaded the news widget as it stopped getting updates.

    Mine failed today also. I was reading Gizmodo in the widget and a headline item would open to a summary page then I could click on Read Full Article, but suddenly it stopped working. I rebooted, I deleted the widget, I force stopped it, I cleared data and it no longer takes me to the summary page.

    As someone above suggested, I switched to another feed for the widget (Engadget) and that works.

    Something odd happening here.
