    News and Weather 2.1

    Hey there guys, i LOVE having 2.1 so far but the news/weather widget is a little disappointing because of the lack of RSS compatibility. Has anyone found a similar/better news app? It kills me to have to find another bc i LOVE the display for the weather on this one...extended forecasts ftw! Thanks for any replies

    I thought the News widget did allow for RSS feeds? That's basically how it displays the news?

    if the old news widget had that capability back on 1.5 then download beta 3 he put that back in on beta 2.

    Well, I've been on beta1 - currently upgrading to beta3 as suggested. on beta1, the news widget on 2.1 beta1 only would allow you to parse certain sites for keywords rather than give it an rss feed ... "Wired" would turn up all kinds of things rather than Wired.com's articles for example. Going to try it out on beta3, thanks for the suggestion ksch.
