    Woah. Android widgets~ 8D<br />Thanks for the list. <br /><br />I&#39;d Lol if you put the Battery Watcher and Pandora next to each other. <br />Kinda sucks when good apps consume a lot of your battery energy.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08800279997931808628 John Smith

    Haha Gian I agree! Pandora tends to use up your battery pretty fast but I think it&#39;s still a worthwhile widget.
