    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.

    I like Google Genie. It's a 1x4 widget that expands if you click on it to show all your selections.

    I use SKY News. Great for uk. 1x4 and expands to full screen and has several tabs across the top to choose home, international, politics, business, sport and others.

    Anyone have an issue with the Genie widget getting stuck on one news article after the phone goes to sleep?

    Is the Genie widget the same thing as the stock news widget? Looks like it from the screenshot above.
