Looking for an application similar to the "Pocket Blond" app available in the Marketplace but need a male image and it does not need to be animated. This does not need a desktop "widget" in 1st phase but if I like the app I'm sure we will continue with a phase II. The main questions for now is when you want the weather delivered and what type of news articles they like. Facebook integration is also nice but not required for phase 1.
Needs the "reminder" icon in the top to tell you have new news articles etc. A lot of creative freedom will be left to the developer. This will be offered as a free app in the Marketplace someday.
The pocket blond app seems slow between news articles. I would be nice if it read the RSS feed at once and remembered the news articles so the "next" article was faster.
