This is my site for links to Genuine Free Stuff as well as some useful advice. I use most of these programs regularly. It's good gear. It's all worth having.

** April 2014. Major revamp and update for relevance happening, especially now that support for Windows XP has ended, and now that we all are addicted to our Android phones. A lot of old stuff is going.

This post in particular started this whole website...

I have been building and using computers since about the Ice Age, from DOS 3 through to Windows 7.
I have been mucking about with mobile phones for quite some time, using Symbian S60 and then Android.

Best free widgets for Android HTC , Sony and Samsung phones. April 2014

Here's my list of widgets that I use on my HTC, Sony and Samsung phones.
I use all these widgets, so this is my backup list in case I lose my phone.

AU Weather - but then I live in Australia
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tomfusion.au_weather_pro

Battery Widget - I like this one best because it has a good touch-to-launch list.

ColorNote 2x2 widget for my shopping list.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.socialnmobile.dictapps.notepad.color.note

Contact Widget - perfect for my needs and the best I've tried of quite a few.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=lcc.simplewidgets

File Widget - perfect for my needs to put a link to a file on my front page.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=pato.filewidget

Jorte Calendar and widgets. I use a 1x1 widget for my daily events and a 4x4 widget for my two weekly calendar.

Network Signal Info Widget - to keep a check on my signal strength and other things. I donated for the Pro version.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.android.telnet2

World Clock Widget - because it's a cool idea
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sonicPenguins.worldClockWidget


... and I almost forgot Moon 3D
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ru.watabou.moon3d

I have tried out every Moon Phase app on the Android Market and I like this one the best. It's actually a Widget that takes up just one spot, not a full page.


Cheers. Si. All current as at April 2014
