HD Widgets unleashes all the power of Android widgets

Either if you are a widget nerd or you have never heard of them, you should take a look at HD Widgets. It's probably one of the most complete and most personalizable widget app on the store.

No matter if what you want is handy widgets for power toggles, clock or weather info. HD widgets includes all of them. But, and here comes the best part, it doesn't bring up presets of widgets: you can tweak background, switch type, active color, labels, text and icons so you create unique custom widgets.

In addition, there are dozens of theme packs you can download directly from the app and take advantage of presets other have build for the community. Oh, community, the magic word. HD Widgets has its own (and very active) community where you can ask anything and contribute with your own creations.

I can't finish this review without mentioning its excellent tutorial for both beginners, intermediate and advanced widget users.

    Minimalist design without trying hard and only if that's your thing. Easy to use. Not one technical issue across a couple different phones. Great app.
