Simple, easy-to-use, and heavily inspired by Google's News & Weather "genie widget", our app keeps you updated with the latest news and local weather information. It provides current news headlines, up-to-date weather info, and three different home screen widgets. We've adopted the incremental open-source philosophy to "release early and release often".

Scheduled maintenance

Posted on May 18, 2014 at 11:46pm UTC
There is some maintenance we need to do on the backend API system. We'll try to keep the downtime as short as possible, but certain functions of the app such as the preferences backup/restore feature may not work during this maintenance window, which is currently scheduled from 7am to 10am UTC (your local time).

Update at 1:47pm UTC — server maintenance took a couple hours longer than we had planned, and there may still be some hiccups as the new backend API addresses propagate. Let us know if you have issues after today, and thanks for your patience. :)
