Widgets are one of the most popular features exclusively available on Android, allowing users to add custom controls and information to their home screens.

HD Widgets ranked as the #1 paid widget app and #2 paid app in 2011 and remained in the top 15 paid apps for over three years with a 4.5-star rating. It was a Play Store Editor’s Choice selection for years and earned us a Top Developer badge.


HD Widgets provided hundreds of widgets with customization for typefaces, clocks, colors, icons, and other features. It spun off three widget packs and an icon pack.


My Role

I was a co-founder, responsible for all design including UX development, branding and logo, play store materials, press releases, website, onboarding, and the user guide. I conducted UX research through direct customer feedback and by moderating the Google+ beta group.

I was also product manager and strategist, leading a small team of developers through three major updates.
