Best new Android widgets (April 2015)

Although iOS scored widget support last year, Android is still the undisputed king of widgets. Naturally, those who swear by Google and Android have tinkered with these; in the meantime, those heavily investing into customization are certainly always searching high and low for a new widget that will give a whole new flavor to their Android screens.

Surely, Google Play is the home ground of many a widget, and while we've already separated the wheat from the chaff numerous times, a multitude of new ones hits the app repository on a regular basis. That's why it's rather hard to keep tabs on all the new widgets that make the rounds for Android. Surely, even the most dedicated Android fans have a tough time keeping track of these.

Here are the better ones that landed on the store in the last fortnight.
