Updated on November 9, 2011

We call widgets as free apps that are cool gadgets running in the browser of our desktop, iPhone, laptop, or iPad. These free widgets exert different functions depending on the platform we use for them. Thanks a lot to the new devices like Internet phones and ipads, as you can use the Internet services without having to go directly to your PC browser and download the free widgets or apps.

You can add weather apps, newspaper apps, free online dictionary apps, and many more, but to be able to download and use these widgets, you need the names and links to these sites from where you can download widgets for your devices without spending a penny or buying something.
