Galaxy S3: How do I add a widget to home screen?
A widget is a simple application extension that is often part of a larger application already installed on the device. Widgets come in all shapes and sizes, are customizable, and reside on any available Home screen for quick access. Widgets provide quick access to information without requiring you to open the application that manages this information. An example is the Calendar widget, which provides a quick view of your upcoming calendar events without opening the Calendar application.
Add a Widget
To add a widget to a Home screen, touch Apps , and then touch the Widgets tab at the top of the screen. Touch and hold an available widget icon. Position the widget on the screen, and release it to add it to the Home screen. If there is not enough space for the widget on the page, you will receive the following message: "No more room on this page." The device will then attempt to place the widget on a Home screen with the necessary space. If there is no room on any existing Home screen, and there are additional Home screens available, a new Home screen will be added. The widget will be placed on the new Home screen.
Delete a Widget
To delete a widget from a Home screen, touch and hold the widget. Drag the widget to Remove at the top of your screen, and release it. The widget is removed from the Home screen but is still available in the Widgets tab.
Resize a Widget
Some widgets can be resized. To resize a widget, touch and hold the widget to open edit mode. If the widget can be resized, you will see a frame around the widget. Touch the frame, and drag it to adjust the size of the widget. When you are satisfied with the new size, release the widget, and touch anywhere outside the widget to exit the edit mode. See the example of a resizable widget below.
