    "In grade school I was always known for my collages. Now, even at 35, I can continue my love for all things "boarded" with a widget from my android phone. I've got it dead center on my home screen and just a touch away. The neat thing about this, It then creates the things I "clip" out and turn it into my own personal magazine as well."

    "I was looking for a good widget app for android and found Hi Locker. I didn't see the connection to widgets here, as the app lets me use a more classical lock screen rather then the current one. I like the app, but it didn't help me with widgets, so I can't recommend it very highly. "

    "I like this app simply for the fact I can interact with my music much easier using the NotiWidget. You can also customize based on what you like to see, such as weather or wallpapers. This app also lets you make as many widgets as you want, even one for your lock screen. It's not outrageously priced as well. "

    "I am looking for a good widget app on my Android phone that will show me the weather right on my home screen or on the screen with all my widgets without having to open up an app. The 1Weather app is great because it functions as the perfect widget. Seemless, fast, and accurate. I really like the "feels like" feature which helps me plan how to dress for the day. Makes it super easy to know whether or not to grab a coat on the way out the door."
