When i first fired up the wildfire it had the news widget on the homescreen ready to go on BBC news. I liked the fact it automatically refreshed the news every so often. Now it has stopped working via the widget. I have tried removing and reinstalling the news widget but the widget just hangs on the message 'loading news'. I can still refresh the news headlines by going into the app but it seems an unnecessary hassle when it used to do this automatically. Why and how to fix this? The phone settings all lok okay.
Got my new desire a few weeks ago on o2, I am having problems with the HTC weather & flip clock widget (the one you get with it), when I go to the weather settings and set the auto update for every hour (or any interval) I do not save the settings, the auto update is always unchecked when I go back to check. Done the usual things remove the widget and added it again to the screen but still does not work.
ive the news feed widget on my homescreen and it just shows the headlines til the other day i just had to press the headline i was interested in and it took me to another page showin headline and saying press for full story. if pressed took you to the bbc site onto that story. now if you press it just does nothing. it flashes green so it knows its been touched but doesnt do anything. ive not changed any settings or anything
I have 3 RSS feeds attached to my news app. I have set the app to update every 2 hours. When I have the news widget up, it does not update at all. I have the click on the little update button. What can I do? I have powered off and on my phone etc. Is this common?
I'm sure there's an easy answer to this: I have a lot subscriptions in Google Reader that I'd to access through HTC's news widget; do I really need to export an OPML file from the Reader to my phone - or is it easier than that (I'd have thought so!)?
Has anybody figured out how to "delete all" news articles in the sense 2.2 news widget? The articles just keep piling up and the only way I can find to delete them is one at a time, which is very time consuming.
So one of the cool things about Froyo is being able to check off Enable Automatic Update for market apps. So i have that checked off for like 80+% of my 80+ apps (that took a while to do let me tell you). Now i have had three apps have updates available since i checked off the box, yet they never actually automatically updated. I waited, hours, still never updated. Is there a setting i need to modify? Do i need to tell it what time of day to do it? Anyone else noticing this? I only really want it in apps that i don't care about reading the new features. But it is annoying that i have it enabled and it does nothing.
This morning I installed update 188.8.131.52 and since then I've noticed a fault with the auto-rotation feature. For things such as internet, SMS inbox, email inbox etc. the screen view is stuck on landscape and will not auto-rotate back to portrait when I tilt the phone
Also I tried playing Teeter and the ball doesn't move no matter how much I tilt the phone. I've tried resetting the G-Sensor Calibration but it doesn't resolve the fault.
I've been using the new HTC News app that came with 2.2. There is no settings option to set a limit on the number of stories. Refreshing the stories just keeps adding them on, but it appears you have to erase them manually, which seems pretty bad given there are over 200 stories and growing on mine right now. Have I got this right?
Just had my new Desire (old one was faulty) & the weather app will not update. I've ticked the Update automatically button, in the weather settings, but when I go back to it, the settings default to not being ticked?? I didn't have this problem before. Also this new Desire seems very slow & sluggish, compared to my last one.
I've been looking for a simple yet powerful weather widget for quite sometime. (I don't need goofy weather animations.) The N1 news/weather widget is exactly what I was looking for, and it runs great on the Evo. The included app is also very nice, I like seeing a graph of temp change over time.
Here's a link to an Incredible thread with the apk download.
I am having a issue with the news widget on the motorola droid x to where when i bring up the scroll window and start scrolling through articles, I see one that has a interesting looking title but it is to long to fit the whole title on the bar so i click on it and wait for the webpage to load only to find out it is not what i thought it was about... is there any way to get this widget to show titles in smaller font or can someone suggest another widget to collect rss feeds?
i'm looking for a widget that can tell me all the latest breaking nfl news. all i can find is widgets that show me scores for my favorite teams. i basically want a widget like the engadget widget only with nfl news rather than tech news. anyone know of something similar to this?
I found this apk from another site so If anybody wants a nexus one weather/news widget I attached it here. It works with the Incredible. You just need to put the apk in the sd card, download AndExplorer from the market and install it.
I haven't seen this posted yet so here it is. Some of you may have seen the pics for the Google weather/news app/widget for Android 2.1 that was running on the Nexus One. Well some hackers pulled the .apk file off that phone and now have it available for us Droiders. I put it on my phone and it works great. The news app is really cool. You can create custom news topics such as "Android" or "Mobile News".
I'm hoping someone might have a suggestion for how to port the News and Weather Widget from stock 2.1 do the Incredible. I had it on my Moto Droid (now the wife's phone), and I really prefer it to the HTC Flip-clock. I like how unobtrusive it is.
I was running Beast 0.1 and about 2 days ago my News and Weather widget kept saying it couldn't connect and just gave me that Retry Now option. So this morning I upgraded to the newest BB 0.2.1, and its still doing this. I've cleared the data, removed the widget and force stopped it and cleared the data again. Anyone else having this issue? I'd simply remove it but I don't really know where to get it again since its built into roms these days (I don't TiBu it)
I've got a screen spare on my Hero and really wanted a full screen news widget that I could just glance at to keep up to date rather than navigating menus. Either that or a scrolling rss ticker if such a thing exists.
This is nothing new, but I just used the Genie Widget from the Nexus One for the first time and I really love it and think that it looks good with the other HTC Sense Widgets.....So in case anyone wants to give it a try or hasnt seen it before here it is.
Has anyone had any trouble getting the news and weather widget to work today? Usually I check it when I wake up in the morning, but it just displays 'network error'. I've tried WiFi/3G, uninstalled/reinstalled the apk, and restarted the phone with no luck.
