Widgets are small applications that you can use directly on your Homescreen. They also

function as shortcuts. For example, the Weather widget allows you to see basic weather

information directly on your Homescreen. But when you tap the widget, the full Weather

application opens. You can download additional widgets from Play Store™.

To add a widget to the Home screen


Touch and hold an empty area on your Homescreen until the device vibrates, then




Find and tap the widget that you want to add.

To Resize a Widget


Touch and hold a widget until it is selected, then release the widget. If the widget

can be resized, for example, the Calendar widget, then a highlighted frame and

resizing dots appear.


Drag the dots inward or outward to shrink or expand the widget.


To confirm the new size of the widget, tap anywhere on the Homescreen.

To Move a Widget

Touch and hold the widget until it is selected, then drag it to the new location.

To Remove a Widget

Touch and hold the widget until the device vibrates, and then drag it to


from home screen.
