 Hi guys,

Can anyone help me find source code for Android's Weather and News app
(Genie Widget). It doesn't look like it can be found at 
and Google's Code Search does not return any results ether

 Sorry that isn't the code for the news and weather app.  I don't think the
code for that app has been made available at this point.

 Nice widget, but no cigar I'm affraid. I'm actually after different
functionality, namely I want to see how they implemented rotating list
of items where headlines constantly rotating in the widget's one at
the time

Thanks for your confirmation. What would be a suitable replacement? I
need an example on how to implement widget functionality where with
given list of entries widget continuously displays these in a loop
just like a News widget does?

 That app in its current form is very much not a good example. :}  I don't
know off-hand of an example to point you to.

1. Content Provider not updating strings from locale


I have an app that has 3 string arrays. These arrays are coded in both
default english and spanish.

When I update my lists with 2 of the string arrays, they use the
correct language if I change my locale on the phone.

The 3rd array is used as a suggestion list for a search function
(using the startSearch() method). I have a content provider that
updates the list based on the, it seems that never seems
to be updated (ie, always shows up in english).

Is there another setting I have to use for it?

I am using it like this inside my class:

public class LocationProvider extends ContentProvider {

public boolean onCreate(){
Resources resources = getContext().getResources();
return true;


The fill method does some other stuff, but I have just echoed out to
logCat to see what is happening:

public void fill(Resources res){
String[] locations = res.getStringArray(;
//TEST to see what is in
for(int i =0;i<10;i++){

In each print statement, it is just the english value that is being
display. Even when I change locale to spanish, run the application,
all my strings are correctly showing spanish except for this list.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
