“Widgets aren’t widely used”
Dari blog HTC:
After releasing Sense 4 last year, I challenged the team to step back and take a fresh look at the overall customer experience. We interviewed customers for their personal feedback and we became students of human behavior, taking more time than ever to observe how people use their phones today.
During our research, a few consistent patterns emerged:
- Most people don’t differentiate between apps and widgets.
- Widgets aren’t widely used – weather, clock and music are the most used and after that, fewer than 10% of customers use any other widgets.
- Most of you don’t modify your home screens much. In fact, after the first month of use, approximately 80% of you don’t change your home screens any more.
