Have widgets been disappearing from your KitKat device? If so, you may not be alone, as HD Widgets is reporting what they believe is a widespread issue among Android handsets running 4.4. It’s causing quite a few headaches, and we’ve even noticed the issue ourselves.

For those of you who have upgraded to the new Google Now Launcher, you’ll notice some things have changed quite a bit. A swipe to the left will get you right into Google Now, and you no longer have five screens by default. One thing we’ve been asked quite a bit is where the widgets are.

The folks at CyanogenMod are prepping for some upcoming changes to the power widgets. These have been used for quite some time now and were originally introduced back on the CM7 days. And for those who haven't been around CyanogenMod for that long -- CM7 looks back towards Android 2.3. That aside, the power widgets will be going away in favor of something called the Quick Access Ribbon.
There is absolutely no shortage of apps on the Google Play Store that will deliver a clock or weather widget. They're extremely popular, and a new one appears on the daily. Recently I've switched my attention to having a minimalistic look and feel on my homescreen. Just a few needed apps and a beautiful analog clock. And Minimal Clock was just what we were looking for.
Beautiful Widgets hasn't been what we would consider super expensive in the past, however those who may have been interested in the app but were turned off by the price -- your day has come.

This weekend one of our favorite weather and widget packs for Android received a nice little update with loads of new goodies to grace our home screens. Of course we're talking about the popular HD Widgets app. We're huge fans of HD Widgets for multiple reasons, and for it being highly customizable.

This week HD Widgets gets rather colorful in a new set of widgets that take what the app already does extremely well and cuts it all down to a rather Pop Art friendly phase. This release comes as a separate download from the main HD Widgets (now at version 3.8, mind you), and brings you a variety of new backs, fronts, colors, and everything in-between for your fully customizable widget family. HD Widgets just went full tilt simplistic for those that are weary of the skeuomorphism designs of the past - get flat!
