In Android, the word widget is a generic term for a bit of self-contained code that displays a program, or a piece of a program, that is also (usually) a shortcut to a larger application. We see them every day on web pages, on our computer desktop and on our smartphones, but we never give too much thought into how great they are. Widgets first appeared in Android in version 1.5, and really gained traction thanks to HTC's Sense-flavored version of the operating system. Prior to the release of the HTC Hero and our first taste of Sense, widgets were functional, but pretty bland in appearance. Since then, manufacturers and independent developers alike have done some marvelous things with widgets, and it's hard to imagine using Android without them. Android widgets come in all shapes and sizes and range from the utilitarian 1-by-1 shortcut style to full-page widgets that blow us away with the eye-candy. Both types are very useful, and it's pretty common to see a widget or two on the home screen of any Android phone. A full-page widget, like HTC's weather widget for late-model Android phones, tells you everything you need to know about the current conditions, and is also a quick gateway to the weather application where you can see things like forecasts and weather data for other cities. At the other end of the spectrum, the Google Reader 1x1 widget watches a folder in your Google Reader account and tells you how many unread items there are, and opens the full application when pressed. Both are very handy, and add a lot to the Android experience.
Most Android phones come with a handful of built-in widgets. Some manufacturer versions of Android offer more than others, but the basics like a clock, calendar, or bookmarks widget are usually well represented. This is just the tip of the iceberg though. A quick trip into the Android Market will dazzle you with the huge catalog of third-party widgets available, with something that suits almost every taste. With Ice Cream Sandwich supporting things like higher resolution screens and re-sizable widgets, it's going to be an exciting year seeing what developers can come up with.

What is a widget


In computing, a web widget is a software widget for the web. It's a small application with limited functionality that can be installed and executed within a web page by an end user. A widget has the role of a transient or auxiliary application, meaning that it just occupies a portion of a webpage and does something useful with information fetched from other websites and displayed in place. Other terms used to describe web widgets include: portlet, web part, gadget, badge, module, snippet and flake. Widgets are typically created in DHTML or Adobe Flash.
Widgets often take the form of on-screen device such as clocks, event countdowns, auction-tickers, stock market tickers, flight arrival information, daily weather etc..

Lost my original clock how do i get it back


You can restore the clock using the same procedure as putting any widget on your phone.

Go to the screen where you want the clock and then do a "long press" on an empty portion of the screen. Basically hold your finger on the screen for 3-5 seconds until the widget menu appears.

- Tap Widgets (it may be under a separate menu like "Sense Widgets"

- Scroll to the widget that you want and tap to select it. If there are any customization options, they will come up now. Choose the options you want and then select Done. Your widget will now be on your screen.

You can move your widget by doing another long press on the widget and dragging it where you want it and then releasing.

How do i close applications on the main page on a samsung jet mobile?


Hi,
Basically to get rid of any reminiscent widgets (like if you were playing music and the widget still is in your desktop), just drag the widget you want to get rid off into the sidebar (the side bar will automatically expand when you drag the widget into it, and your widget will minimize and insert itself into the side bar).
Now the widget is officially closed .

Enjoy :) Ed

[Stat] - Data numbers (frequency) < 1 (not integer) on TI 85 Calc


Frequencies are always integers. They indicate how many times that particular data value came up. The data values may be non-integers.

As an example, let's say you're measuring the weights of widgets. You may have 3 widgets weighing 1.1 kg, 5 widgets weighing 1.2 kg, and 2 widgets weighing 1.3 kg.

Note that the data are non-integers (1.1, 1.2, 1.3) but the frequencies are integers (3, 5, 2).
