    I've been looking for a simple yet powerful weather widget for quite sometime. (I don't need goofy weather animations.) The N1 news/weather widget is exactly what I was looking for, and it runs great on the Evo. The included app is also very nice, I like seeing a graph of temp change over time.

    Here's a link to an Incredible thread with the apk download.

    Also another cool aspect, you can configure the widget to display just weather, just news, or both.

    Great little widget, Im using it as a news widget. Having an issue though, when I first add the widget to my homescreen if cycles through the news articles prefectly. After A few minutes it just stays on one article. Is this normal? Im thinking it just cycles through any new articles then it just stops after it finished through all the new ones right?

    Can you add your own feeds into this widget? and if so does it work properly?

    Example: I was using HTC News for a while until I discovered a pretty annoying issue. I had 4 feeds and after reading and deleting articles from the feed. they would come back all as unread the second the widget refeshed itself.

    I can't comment on the news side of the widget/app. I just use it for weather.

    So is it normal for it to scroll though the news articles then just stop on one?

    very nice program! im so used to the big htc widget on the home screen.. it was hard to see it go.. but it took up a lot of real estate. this one is pretty slick... kudos to the OP for the heads up..

    Why do people always have to quote entire screenshots? Ugh.

    OP, thanks.

    also, there is a section on the widget where you can add your own feed... have any of you played around with that yet?

    You can't add specific feeds but you can add custom keywords and it'll fetch related news.

    And it does a very good job of fetching news based on the keyword...

    I put in Topeka for my local news and it pulls only the news from the city and from several different news sources...

    Awesome, just awesome...

    I agree. With the default configuration, the widget is good. However, after adding some customized keywords, I've found it to be extremely useful.

    (and thanks, marctronixx!!)

    I have been using this news widget for a while now. It is much better then the htc one as most of the words get cut off on that one.

    Remember to put the widget in the "ignore" list if you're using a task killer/manager.
