5 Helpful Widgets For Your Android Tablet
Widgets are an inherent part of Android OS and something we hold dearly. They are useful and practical little adjustments to the default settings, that can enhance our mobile experience with more functions, looks or, simply, make it a bit more fun.
Several blogs back we talked about some of our favourite Android widgets for smartphones – Make Your Life Easier With The Best Widgets Of 2014. Now, we turn to tablets. A choice of a widget to install is, surely, personal and you will be looking for something that can customize your tablet’s look or functionality. In this post, we’ll introduce you to a few clever widgets that could be a nice addition to your collection.
Wizz Widget is a great place to start, as it acts as some sort of homescreen widget library and will offer you a set of various customizable add-ons for your tablet screen. You will have plenty of choices, all the way from tools helping to organize your agenda to the ones managing your social media. Wizz Widgets features Agenda Widget, Calendar Widget, Reader Widget, Facebook and Twitter Widgets, Timeline Widget, Contact Widget and more. All in all, if you don’t want to roam the Play Store in search of individual tools, you can try the set offered by Wizz Widget.
Flipboard is actually a digital magazine, known for its stylish and colourful design. You can have it on both phone or tablet, but a bigger screen will let you appreciate its layout better. There are two widgets available: a 3×1 (well-suited for a smaller phone screen, showing a headline and image) and a bigger one at 5×5 (a good choice specifically for a tablet, as the widget will take up lots of screen space). You will be able to find any publication through the search bar and see a selection of your favourite finds in the side bar.
Wunderlist is a productivity app that helps manage your to-do lists and organize your daily plans. It works in a similar way to other note-taking apps, but has an interesting-looking interface and allows you to choose between various size options. It may be nice to have long notes or items, displayed on the screen in full size – taking a full advantage of a big tablet display – that is why Wunderlist may be quite a good tablet-specific choice.
LilyPad HD is a social app, that has a great selling point: a way to chat with your friends while working in other apps on your tablet. A big screen makes sure you have enough space to conveniently do both and LilyPad HD takes care of the organizational component. If you preferred chat app is Google Talk, you will be able to enjoy the widget for free. You can also switch to a paid version for more social options, like Facebook Messenger. Designed to float over your other applications, the app will let you multitask without overloading your screen.
