Google update their News & Weather app

After a very impressive update the Google News & Weather app has now been moved to my homescreen where it'll now get some use.

Google have also made it available on Google Play for devices running Android 4.0 so hit the link and give it a go. The app does pull in news from various sources and to read a story you are sent out to the source website, BBC, Daily Mail and the like.

You can manage sections, move those that interest you more to the top and bring the topics you're not so bothered about a little lower down the list.

If you want to catch up on what's going on elsewhere in the big and rather nasty world simply hit the three dots to the top right and select an edition from another country. If you like you can even select a different location.

If you ever pick the paper up at your folks to have a nose you can now do it from your smartphone or tablet wherever you are, you can even check out the weather at home or pretty much wherever.

Grab the app via the below link and give it a whirl. Don't forget to give the widget a go, that has had some attention so as not to feel left out.
