Yeah, the update won't work if it's on the homescreen because it's running.

Don't know of a way around that either. It's a system level thing. It should do the "it's running. close it?" thing.

System should deal with that kind of thing really...

Looks great. Maybe add an option to "Select All" in the menu when asked which news feeds to add?

I'm keeping with a "none selected = all feeds" thing in case I add feeds to the database. So basically, if you've got no feeds selected you get all of them.

Also, if you click on the feed name it'll also check/uncheck the checkbox

Edit: But I've added a reset feeds button to go back to using all feeds...

Right. New version. Now with twitter support.

If you click "options>twitter options" and enter your twitter username and password you can tweet any link from the newsfeed, with a comment straight to your twitter feed...

swanky eh?

Any issues, give me a shout please...

Great work once again dave, your widget just keeps getting better, and I can see this getting mainstream soon.

Is it possible for you to maybe make the buttons bigger, and lower down on the screen? The buttons that shift left or right to the next or previous articles.

Also, when tweeting an article, would it be possible to automatically add the title of the article, then leave the option to add a comment, adding the url on the end of the tweet rather than the beginning.?

Keep up the great job, I will be writing up an article about your widget on Nokiausers But will wait a little while until you can maybe make the UI look a little better. It looks great don't get me wrong, and appreciate your hard work, but if at all possible, if you could make the UI more simplistic, with bigger buttons, etc, your onto a winner.!

I'm not happy with the UI myself yet. Still a little to "prototypey" for my liking, so yes, better buttons etc coming soon.

As far as tweeting goes, I'm concerned about the 140 char limit, so with tiny URL & Title & Comment I want to make sure url isn't truncated - so the easy way is to drop it at the start, but I'll take a look. Also, I want room for the #dcs60 app hash tag (purely for my own vanity).

Cheers for the feedback - expect more updates later...

Another minor update.

- Tidied the UI a little.
- Now tweets in the format "[comment] [url] via DCS60"
- Adds link title to comment box automatically (but can be edited)

Comments. as ever, appreciated...
