Adding to the series of Pure Widgets, Android developer Francois Deslandes has released Pure News to the Android Market after plenty of beta testing. Pure News is a scrollable widget that works in combination with many of the launchers that are available and allows for creation of a customizable, scrollable news widget through Google Reader. If you're also lucky enough to own a Motorola Xoom you'll find that Pure News is supported and all of the customizable options that are made for smaller devices will also run on the Xoom such as skinning, update options and cache operations.
One small caveat of the Pure News widget is that you have to enable scrollable widgets within whatever launcher it is that you are using. You should find those options under the settings area of your launcher of course but once enabled you'll be up and running. Android 3.0 can by pass this step though as 3.0 allows for scrollable widgets.
Sadly, no lite or trial version is available currently but you should certainly be able to see if it fits your needs within the refund time allotted. Jump on past the break for the download and to see it up and running on the Motorola Xoom.
