Android 2.1 News and Weather App Ported to Android 1.5
While this might not exactly constitute news, many Android 1.5 users will be happy to know that the popular News and Weather app(which comes with a widget) in Android 2.1 has been ported to Android 1.5! Also known as the “Genie Widget,” the News and Weather app has been available unofficially for Android 2.0 and 1.6 for quite some time now. In fact, my wife is happily using one on her G1 as I write this this. As it is quite popular, many had wondered if it was available for Android phones that operate using 1.5 operating system. Now, thanks to someone’s good work, we do! For those of you who are unfamiliar with the app, it is the same Android 2.1 News and Weather app which provides both custom news and weather. Within the widget users can choose to see just the weather forecast, just the news, or both the news and the weather. As an HTC Hero owner, I can tell that the 1.5 port is fully functional and works great. Thanks XDA! For those interested it can be found here!
