Functioning correctly on Venu. Some visual improvements would be welcome: text display adapted to Venu screen, possibility to scroll more than one line of text. Hope this review will encourage you to continue your developments as the app is good enough to deserve it. Don’t be turned off by bad reviews.

You can open the menu by holding the menu key or by long tapping on the screen. Keep in mind that you need to be on the splash screen. Edit: now you can access the main menu from anywhere in the app

I just upload an update which aims to fix this issue. Could you please try again and tell me wether the widget works for you now?

Very useful app. The at a glance view now works better. Shows the first news message. But if its turned off, you see only the icon.

Very handy app! Tried the experimental glance view, but it hardly scrolls. Also, when you open the widget, it says 'news' and then you have to click again. Also categories would be nice. Keep it up!

Thanks for you feedback! Yes, categories would be really nice, but this feature would require a paid version of the news api. I will try to improve the scrolling experince for the glance view.
