I'm not surprised you're confused: the term is indeed used for two different things, as you've found. For developers, a widget means a View: a single GUI control inside an activity, which can show information or be manipulated by the user. Examples include Button, TextView, and SeekBar. The app component that lives on the home screen (or lock screen) is ...

This can (and certainly will) happen when installing apps on SDCard. Normally, the system should prevent this (or rather the dev, by defining the "install-location" accordingly in the app's Manifest). So if the apps were installed on SDCard, go to Settings→Apps, scroll to the apps' entries, open them (one by one), and move the app to internal storage. If ...

Keep clicking on the Next button as if you are agreeing. Then you can choose 'No, Maybe Later` to opt out of google-now.

This could be achieved with tasker: You can create a "task" performing the HTTP_GET you need, and then create a shortcut to that task on your homescreen (the same way you'd create any other shortcut there: Tasker Task shows up in the list of available shortcuts, and lets you select the task to create the shortcut for).

Do this (at your own risk) if that's a default widget came along with OS because those widgets are unrecoverable once deleted. 1 Perform a backup of your important data (remember 'not the settings') in the Tab to a PC or Cloud. 2 Then do a "Hard Reset" of Tab. (Every handset has a unique way to do a hard reset. So Google it.) 3 Tab will be reset to its ...

This looks like a lock screen widget, rather than a home screen one. It won't appear in the widget selector - instead, you'll need to re-add it to your lock screen. I'm not sure what the process is on the Smart Tab series, but it's probably in your Settings menu, somewhere having to do with Lock Screen.

Turning OFF your screen via widget is possible (and several widgets are available for that). But turning ON the screen cannot work that way, as to access the widget, it must already be turned on. Of course you could use a lockscreen permitting widgets (like C Locker Pro). An alternative is using tasker, and defining a corresponding profile: Condition: ...

It's hard to say without seeing it, but what you describe sounds like you've added a home screen widget (a.k.a. appwidget). Long-press the widget to pick it up, and a delete icon will appear (it looks like a bin or an X). Drag-and-drop the widget onto the delete icon.

Long-tapping on the home screen is how widgets used to be added in earlier Android versions, up to about 2.1. Some devices (such as Samsung ones) still offer the old way on the manufacturer's stock home screen: adding widgets is a feature offered by the launcher, so some third-party launchers may have yet different ways. On the stock Android launcher, go to ...

You can't make the widget change from analogue to digital, but you can replace the analogue one from a digital one. Hold your finger on the clock widget and drag it to the delete icon to remove it. Then, to add a digital clock widget, go to the app drawer and click Widgets, and find Digital clock in the list. Hold your finger on the digital clock to pick it ...

Android's lockscreen widget by design comes minimized, and you have to manually maximize it. There is no way to configure it otherwise. That said, some custom ROMs (e.g. CyanogenMod, AOKP) offer the functionality to enable showing the expanded lockscreen widget when the screen is turned on: Of course, you will need to unlock your phone's bootloader and ...

You have to check "Enable widgets" in Settings > Security. Then you can swipe right on the lockscreen as usual.

And a third variant is a kind of "1x1 multi-widget", capable of holding other widgets, and expanding to their size when opened. There are several of those "widget folders" available, see e.g. Widget Folder or Widget Container (there might be more of them, but those are the two I was able to find short-term). Then each of your widgets consumes just 1x1 when ...
