    Widgets vs. Apps

    I bought a calendar "widget" and when I activate it, I get info and not the calendar.
    What's the diff btw anapp & a widget & how do I get a widget to work?

    A widget is MORE than an icon. It runs in conjunction. You must enable a widget via, the widget setting. An App can be seen on the panel (droid panel)

    Long hold your finger on a home screen, then choose widgets. Make sure you have room for it.
