HD Widgets

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

HD Widgets was a top 20 paid app in the Play Store for three years, and was the #1 ranked paid app in December 2011. The app was extremely popular, with 1.5M installs and a 4.5 star rating. It was frequently featured as Editor’s Choice and earned the Top Developer badge.



The app

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

As co-founder, I was 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 moderated the beta user group.

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