    I feel really dumb since I bought this razor for my wife. She keeps handing it to me to get it to do what she wants and I am apparently not as smart as I thought I was. Downloaded a digital clock widget but I can not make it any larger than a small icon. Am I doing something wrong or is the tiny reading all I am going to get. Don't laugh to loud my wife might hear you and start laughing with you.:hail:

    Welcome to Droid Forums!! Anyone can own a smart phone, I'll see if I can help you out.

    But first I will ask, which developer made the app? I ask because I searched with the intention of checking it out, but, there are a number on the market by that name.

    Ahhh, asherdav, we will have you impressing your wife with smartphone smarts in no time! Welcome to the forums!

    Go to the play store and try fancy widgets, be-weather widgets or beautiful widgets. They are all very similar and have many different styles you can choose from.

    Shhhh, trying not to laugh. No, just kidding! That is what is fun about these phones... there is so much you can do with them!

    Oops! See, we are already throwing ideas at you! Start with JSM... he will probably help you find success with the one clock widget you already have.

    Well just downloaded it, it appears you selected one with only one size lol. How big of a widget were you looking to have?

    Perhaps try out some of Tis's suggestions (she really knows her stuff) as they are all great apps.

    I have used Beautiful Widgets since I first got a droid, which is a little over 2 years ago now, but it is a paid app. I believe Fancy Widgets has a free one you can try out on the market, maybe start there and see if you like it.

    Do you still get the option for widgets by long pressing on an open space on the home screen with ICS?

    Oh, :-D and welcome to the Forums!!!

    AFAIK on all devices with ICS they are in the app drawer. Unless, you are using a custom launcher.
