10 great Android widgets you should try
Widgets – you probably got a whole bunch of them pre-installed on your Android smartphone. That's great and all, but did you know that there's tons more for download from the Google Play store? Yup, there's a whole section dedicated to them. 

However, not all of those widgets are really worth your time, and going through all that are available can be a tedious process. That's why we decided to save you, guys, some valuable time by shortlisting a handful of great Android widgets. Furthermore, most of the ones we've picked come free of charge. Go check them out and get as many of them as you wish!

I effing LOVE Power Toggles! I've been using it for a few weeks, and it works flawlessly!

I'd recommend Notification Toggle. Same thing, but it's in your notification shade, which you can pretty much access in any app.

Power Toggles is running in my shade. It's not a normal on-screen widget ;-)

Of the ones on this list, the only one I use is Dictionary.com. I only need a power toggle for my WiFi hotspot, so Power Toggles is overkill for me. I use The Weather Channel's widget for weather.

This is why i love andoid. It is about personal CUSTOMIZATION. Especially pure google ui. One nexus not going to look the same with other nexus :D

They need to come out with a bathroom Porn widget. ( o Y o ) Get in the stall and one touch access to your favorite passtime.
