Best new widgets for Android (August 2015) #2
August is upon us, widget fans, and we won't leave you hanging! Your newest bi-weekly batch of new Android widgets is here, and as you probably know, you should be using these if you want to make full use of your Android phone's software capabilities. See, if we take away widgets out of the feature bag, we are easily stripping it from one of its defining features. And we don't want to do this, do we?

Apple's iOS also supports these though. While it doesn't bask in the same amount of customization options, Apple's platform still welcomes new widgets on a regular basis. From time to time, we will be highlighting some of the newer and top new iOS widgets as well.

This week is no different, as the fortnight's dosage of Android widgets is here. Scroll down and check out the notable new ones that you shouldn't miss at all costs.
