Some of my favorite apps to review are ones of productivity. I’ll take anything from any developer if it’s going to make my life easier in the least slightest form.

The widget is extremely customizable and offers easy access to check out your events, tasks and even contact birthdays while on the fly. The coolest aspect of the application is that it can be launched as an app by tapping on the icon from your home screen or by applying the widget to one of your home screen desktops. If you choose to use it as an app with an icon on the desktop, the widget functionality will not open up until you tap it, subsequently saving you a whole home screen of real estate.
