I'm not really a widgets person but the reddit one would be decent.

I have Slider Widget because the Touchwiz way of maintaining system sounds is garbage. With Touchwiz, I can pull down the notification tab and hit the sound icon to off or vibrate, but it only sets it to the last remembered state. In other words, I can have the sound icon to 'off' (greyed out with a line going through it) but my system media volume can be at max. Totally inconsistent and typically Samsung.
Slider Widget lets me know, right from the home screen, which system sounds are active and what volume they're at. Just double tap an icon and it toggles it either to full volume, or off.
As for the other widgets, I'm not a big fan of weather / dictionary etc widgets when I can quickly pull up google search / google voice search and type in my query. The Google Keep widget looks good, so does the Reddit one (although I prefer to have Reddit in a browser window).

All you have to do in touchwiz is hit the volume rocker then the gear icon and all of your individual volume sliders are there. Not that hard.

I don't know why but I only find the #2 beautiful while others give me a cluttered layout.

Add "Any Text Widget" to this list : play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bhanu.anytextwidget
its very Simple, nice design app for making Text widgets for android, app have all the basic function requested.. Developer made it clean app, not lot of confusing options, only the important function to make simple text widgets on homescreen and lockscreen.
