    I am looking for a news widget that is 1x4 in size.

    Will give a good mix of up-to-date news.

    And hpefully one that you can scroll around in to read other stories.

    NY Times for me.

    Nice simple widget to use, updates often. Has the latest articles, and a nice video section too.

    And like your asking for, you can read one article and just scroll over with your finger to the next article. Very nice.

    I really like the times one but it doesn't load properly and remains blank after about a day of use. I changed my news widget to feedr. It's an RSS reader that will put headlines from any new source you want, and the widget is beautiful. I currently have in there Phandroid, ny times, cnn, wallstreet journal, and gizmodo. The widget will show each rss feed and you can scroll through them and then click into the articles you want to read. There are a ton of setting that I haven't quite figured out yet, but the app is great!

    I use express news and it is fine -- I'll check out feedr now.
