    Beautiful Widgets – Use multiple widgets for various things
    BatteryLife – Battery percentage widget
    Pulse News Reader – Best looking RSS news reader out there, I mainly use it for this site.
    Phandroid – News
    Engadget – News
    S-Memo – Only useful if you have a Note.
    Torch – Sometimes you need a flashlight
    Task Manager – Widget included with Touchwiz, use it to check how much RAM is being used, and active applications.
    Alarm Clock Xtreme – Need to know what time I’m waking up tomorrow.
    Playerpro – My favorite music player

    I think that’s it, I miss the Android and Me widget.

    Honestly, I don’t use any widgets. Not a single one. Haven’t found any of them appealing enough to bother.

    I’m not into widgets that simply look pretty. What’s the real point to a nice clock widget, when there’s a clock in the top right corner of my screen?

    But I’m probably a bit unusual in that respect. In fact, I only have one screen.

    I removed all the other screens, and I just use folders and an expanded grid (6 across, 6 down) to organise my most frequently used apps.

      Well thats the great thing about android! There just like BK have it your way :D. I like the big clock widget, not only for the clock but for the weather.

    I only use the calendar and Gtask widget. To take a look at something quickly. Also have the stock clock widget.

    Would like to use more but are a bit worried about their battery drain (not all developers but time in developing it well).
