    Apps are programs (applications) that you run on the Droid by selecting an icon on the home screen or from the app drawer.

    Widgets are apps that have an interactive icon that updates itself...Facebook, Weatherbug are just two examples of apps that have Widgets.

    Not all app have Widgets.

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
