Re: Ubuntu Phone Widgets
I also thought about that one . As I see it Cannonical won't make them
native ,nor the home screen customizable enough ,so there will be an app
that the users will install to use as a desktop , and it will support
widgets . I just hope , that there will be enough customizability , so
that we won't need to make entire forks of the Phone OS , to change the
default home screen app for example .
Actually I think there's no anwser on the topic because it's too early ,
and some of the development/design decisions haven't been made yet . At
least those are my optimistic thoughts . So if there's enough peer
interest in getting widgets it may happen natively too.
I think we should just wait to see the image released , the topic as I
said ,comes kind of early .

Yesterday i stumbled upon following youtube Video titled "My Ubuntu
Android Theme on Nexus 4 Hands on Demo"
It's about his Android theme in Ubuntu Phone style.
Other than that it's really well done, it shows how Ubuntu Phone could
integrate Android-like widgets.
What about widgets, was one of the questions I had from the Ubuntu Phone
Demos I saw on youtube.
Is there already an official answer on widgets?
What do you think of Widgets and Ubuntu Phone? not needed? can
everything be done by lenses?
