    I have a Droid Incredible and I'm looking for a good newspaper reader/widget. I've downloaded a couple (AG Newspapers US is one) but when the pages load they're too large to read. In addition, the zoom-out button and pinch zoom-out don't work. Can anyone help a newbie here? Thanks!

    Bump... im looking for the same thing. Used to have an app for the ipod that gave me like the top 20 highest circulation newspapers in the US, including some other sites like espn etc. Id love to find something like that for android.

    I recommend World Newspapers. The Dev. is great at updating and addressing your concerns. It not only has all of the newspapers from around the world but also a large selection of popular magazine titles.

    I tried Newspapers on my Incredible and it doesn't scrool right. The screen turns black from top to bottom as I scrool down. also when I try to read an article I can only get one articl off the page no matter what article I click on.

    Judging by the comments on the above linked page, I'm not the only one that had formatting problems.

    Flyscreen's pretty nifty. And you can use it in lock-screen mode - see your widgets on your phone's sleep screen.
    I like it a lot!
