Widgets have been around for a long time. It used to be one of the features that made Android better than iOS. These days, our reliance on widgets has waned. Between better designed apps, quick settings, app shortcuts, more powerful notifications, and always-on displays, there aren’t too many reasons to have them. However, there are just some things, like note taking, weather, calendar, to-do lists, etc that will always simply work better in a widget format. We simply don’t live in the era we once did, but that doesn’t mean widgets are useless now. Here are the best Android widgets! We’d also like to give an honorable mention to HD Widgets for continuing to receive updates, but it really needs some extra work.
