 This is a widgets package. The main app is mainly intended for explaining how to actually add widgets to your home screen.
 A scroll button is used on Android 2.x with launchers that don't support scrollable widgets. If your launcher does not support scrolling either use the scroll button or replace your launcher. Honeycomb, ICS, JB, ADW Launcher, Launcher Pro, Go Launcher Ex and many other launchers support scrollable widgets.
 Calendar widget is not scrollable in its grid mode.
 In Quick Event entering the edit window will ignore the reminder setting and the selected calendar, and use the default calendar application settings instead.
 Bookmarks widget supports the following browsers: Stock, Chrome, MIUI, Skyfire. Please understand that most browsers simply can't be supported.
 Facebook/Twitter pictures are cached to SD card. Clear cache in preferences if the pictures are outdated.
 On Android 4.x the Facebook for Android application does not normally allow non system applications to access contact images. Use the free Facebook contact Sync application http://goo.gl/Jw8W7
 Reasons for every permission are available here http://androidprowidgets.blogspot.com/p/android-permissions.html

I installed this with the latest Go Launcher and the facebook widget will not show any pictures at all. This seems to be a problem with the "internal" FB application as when I open that pictures are not displayed either. Everything else seem to work fine and I really like it, but there appears to be something wrong with the FB widget.

I like the option to not update in the background while the screen is off. No need to query status when no one's looking.
Love the messaging widget. Google+ released a small amount of their api by the way - think it's read-only access though.

I'm cautiously optimistic, look great but will they cause lag, mem, batt issues? Wish the calendar widget had a 4x4 Weekly option.

Great having FB & Twitter scrolling on homepages. Support for link FB web instead of app is great. If G+ comes this will be one of my must have apps.

Like them MUCH BETTER than the Sense ones! Much more customization, and it integrates well with the official Facebook!

When my friends Facebook pictures update the contacts widget won't update the pictures, even after refreshing. I have to remove and readd the widget.

Love it Thanks! Just the Widgets I was looking for and the themes are good also. Wish the Widgets were scrollable.
