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 ...

Some of the below is speculation, or given to me by sources I can't cite so take it as is. Some (many) of the OEMs (manufacturers) like LG and Samsung embed their propitiatory widgets within their own launcher. This (allegedly) is down to them not wanting you to emulate their own look and feel in someone else's launcher. Samsung, beside Android, have ...

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).

It can not be done in one Rich Text block. Try making three separate blocks for hours, colon and minutes which are text-aligned right, centre and left respectively and position them next to each other.

If it isn't in the BBCode Reference, then it's probably not supported. I would suggest contacting the developer instead.

I think this might be what you're looking for: Meta Widget: Create widgets from almost any website element Websnap-Web capture,Web widget: take a snapshot of any web page or part of a page and display it on your Android home screen with a refresh interval of your choice Feel free to search Google Play for related apps.

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 ...

That is a Samsung-specific widget. I would suggest you to install other apps from Play Store with same functionality. You can give Timely Alarm Clock a try.

as you said, some of the apps cannot be uninstalled since it comes preloaded with the Samsung phone itself. The other way to calm down an annoying app is to clear its data. Goto :: Home -> Settings -> Applications -> All -> App Name (in this case, accuweather) -> Clear Data. Wait for a day. if this solves the problem, then try using this app as usual.

I think it is a recent Accuweather update that displays the weather when you go back on your home menu. It's really annoying as when you click on the "home" button, it brings you back to that page and not the actual menu, which means you can't navigate between applications without clicking the back button all the way. I think I may have fixed it the brute ...
