I’ve published yesterday the first version of a scrollable news widget. This is my first attempt at android development.

– Allow hiding news summary
– Organize preference screen
– Add simple appearance tweaks
– Add simple feed validation
– Add more refresh intervals
You can find more information in the application thread.
