Simple App Widget – Android Studio Tutorial
In this tutorial we will learn, how to create a simple home screen app widget that contains a button and opens the MainActivity when we click it.
For this we will create a widget layout, an AppWidgetProvider class and an AppWidgetProviderInfo xml file. In the AppWidgetProvider java file we will then override onUpdate and create a PendingIntent which brings us to our MainActivity. We set this intent on our widget button with help of the RemoteViews class and then update our widget with the appWidgetManager object. We repeat this process for all instances of our widget by looping through the appWidgetIds int array.
In the app widget info xml file, we define the update frequency with updatePeriodMillis, the widgetCategory, minHeight, minWidth, minResizeWidth, initialLayout and more.
Lastly we register our AppWidgetProvider in the AndroidManifest.xml file as a broadcast receiver with the APPWIDGET_UPDATE intent filter. We register our appwidget info object in the meta data tag with android.appwidget.provider.
Our widget will have a previewImage which we create with help of the Widget Preview app and it will be resizable.

Your app, their home screen: Widgets (Android Development Patterns S2 Ep 2)
If you want your app to get noticed, you gotta get in the game. The Widget game, that is. (http://developer.android.com/design/p…) Widgets are literally a window into your app. They let users see key information at a glance, trigger helpful controls with a tap, and even interact with your app without ever needing to open it. Not having one (or several!) sounds like a missed opportunity to me. You don’t want to be a missed opportunity, do you?
