Today we can hardly imagine an Android device without widgets. Google introduced mobile app widgets for Android 1.5 and reworked them a lot for Android 3.0 and 3.1. Widgets serve as a way to quickly access app information, remotely manage an app, and can also be personalized according to individual user requirements.
The simplicity and popularity of widgets has led to an increase in the demand for the development of customized widgets for Android apps. However, widget implementation is not as easy as it may seem.
