Widgets provide a quick look at an installed app with access to streaming information, settings and a shortcut to launch the program. Having widgets on your Home screen gives you a quick glance at the app running in the background.
- Long press (touch and hold your finger down) on any open spot on one of your Home screen pages. This will bring up a list of options.
- Touch Widgets from the list of choices.
- Scroll through your list of installed widgets and select the widget you want to add to your Home screen.
- Adjust the widget settings if required. Some widgets have size and frequency settings.
If you are looking for a particular widget, search the Android Market for the widget you want to add to your desktop. Try out a few news or weather widgets to get used to their operation.
