Android allows users to customize their phone’s multiple homescreens with fun and time-saving widgets. Most manufacturers include their own widgets, but there’s also plenty of compelling options in the Android market. For example, Pandora’s widget makes it easy to control your music, while The Weather Channel lets you peek at the latest conditions. There’s also the very useful Buzzbox for scanning news headlines from multiple sources and Picture Dial for dialing by face instead of number.
Step by Step
Quick Tip: In some cases you’ll be asked to choose the size of the widget, such as 2×2 or 4×4. Go with a smaller size if you want to fit more than one widget on a given homescreen.
