Android 2.1 (Flan) may or may not be available (depends on your level of Android hackery) yet but that doesn’t mean you can’t at least have one of the shiny new features 2.1 brings. For 2.1 Google has thrown in a new weather/news widget. It isn’t anything groundbreaking but nonetheless is a nice addition to the stock allotment of widgets.
The weather widget is rather simple and shows the city, current conditions, and temperature while the news widget is a bit deeper allowing customization showing/hiding various news categories and even creating your own. Overall it’s a nifty download worth installing. Get on it folks.
**In order to install the 2.1 Google News/Weather widgets, Navigate to Settings > Applications and check “allow install of non marketplace apps”.
