Press Release:

Cloud.tv is pleased to announce the release of HD Widgets 2.0.

HD Widgets 2.0 is a universal app for tablets and phones and is the first to offer 7″ tablet size widgets (6×2, 6×1, 3×5).

The app’s UI provides an early taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, particularly in the tab & page navigation. In fact, swipe is fundamental to the core experience: almost all navigation and customization is done via left/right swipe gestures.

As a widget app, HD Widgets 2.0 was made to be as lightweight and flexible as possible. The app uses 4 unique apks based on screen size & resolution. Each version supplies only the images necessary for that particular device, thus reducing storage space while providing pixel-perfect resolution.

This latest release is totally reorganized and built for future expansion. The old Preview activity has been replace with two new activities: Active Widgets for finding and customizing existing widgets and Themes to preview each theme’s collection. Quick Tips have been replaced with a User Guide to help new Android users who are unfamiliar with widgets. Finally, all HD Widgets are now organized by size groups (1×1, 2×1, etc) making it easy to locate them at the start of your widget menu.

HD Widgets 2.0 is available as a special launch promo for only 1.99 (33% off).
