Guildwars 2 - News Reader is a widget created to automatically get news about Guildwars 2 from multiple sources.

Every hour, the widget gets the latest news from the GW2 official website, from the GW2 Facebook page, and from GW2 Twitter feed, allowing you to have an instant access to all interesting information about your favorite game.

There are 2 display modes :
- One data source at a time : displays only news from the currently selected data source. You can switch between data sources with the button at the bottom of the widget.
- All sources sorted by date : displays news from all data sources, and sort them by their publication date.
You can change the display mode on the configuration screen.

By clicking on an article, the details screen appears. This screen contains a button (at the bottom) linking to the original source.

    This app is where I learn about most of my new GW2 knowledge! I use it about 3 times a day, every day. 5 stars.

    I love it. A super-awesome, ad-free, indispensable time saver. The recent updates have improved the widget greatly. I now know when it's updating, and I have context for tweets. Incredible.
