 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.

2. Eclipse Loan calculator help!

Hello all!

I'm starting out and new to the development of android applications
and also new to the java programming.  I'm trying to make a app that
will allow me to calculate a loan but I am running into some trouble
and need assistance.  Having virtually 0 experience with java I
researched java code that I could use but it did not seem to convert,
I have went through and tried to changed most the of the what I
thought needed to be changed but eclipse does not seem to recognize
what a "parseDouble" is.  How can I make this code work? below is the
code that i have in my main java file:


import java.text.DecimalFormat;
import java.text.NumberFormat;

import com.project.calculator.R;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.util.Log;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class main extends Activity
         double principal; // original principal

          double intRate; // interest rate

          double numYears; // length of loan in years

          final int payPerYear = 12;
          NumberFormat nf;

        public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)

        final DecimalFormat df = new DecimalFormat ("#,###.##");

        final TextView txtAnswer =
                (TextView) findViewById(;

        Button btCal = (Button) findViewById(;

        btCal.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener()


                        public void onClick(View arg0)
                                double result = 0.0;

                                TextView amountStr = (TextView) 
                                TextView periodStr = (TextView) 
                                TextView rateStr = (TextView) 

                                try {
                                        if (amountStr.length() != 0 && 
periodStr.length() != 0
                                                  && rateStr.length() != 0) {

                                                principal = 
                                                numYears = 
                                                intRate = 
Double.parseDouble(rateStr) / 100;

                                                result = compute();


                                catch (NumberFormatException exc)

                double compute()
                                double numer;
                                double denom;
                                double b, e;

                            numer = intRate * principal / payPerYear;

                            e = -(payPerYear * numYears);
                            b = (intRate / payPerYear) + 1.0;

                            denom = 1.0 - Math.pow(b, e);

                            return numer / denom;

Thanks for the help!
