For Android 2.2 and higher, versions 2.x of this widget are available.
These versions add GuildWars2 news from Facebook and Twitter. Version 2.4.3 and higher also add publications from the official GuildWars 2 website.
Other versions of Android still have access to the version 1.2, which displays news only from the ArenaNet blog.
Please note that this is a widget, not an application. Thus, you can't find it in your applications list.
Instead, you can add it to a desktop by long-clicking on a desktop, then selecting Widgets.
This widget reads the last news posted on the official ArenaNet blog, about GuildWars game and its long-awaited sequel : GuildWars 2.
In versions 2.X, the widget also reads news from the official Facebook and Twitter pages, and in version 2.4.3 it also reads news from the official GuildWars 2 website. You can switch between data sources with the button at the bottom of the widget.
On the configuration screen, you can also select to display news by publication date. This option will display news from all sources, from the most recent to the oldest (6 news by source max).
A click on the title of an article from ArenaNet blog shows its summary, and a button linking to the article, on the official blog, via the web browser.
If it's a Facebook or a Twitter post, the whole post is displayed.
