Default Scrollable Widgets for ADW, LauncherPro, Zeam, GO, etc.

Scrolling widgets make great use of the limited space on our mobile displays. Now, more launchers and even Google's Android OS 3.0 seem to be swiping widgets up and down. Searching the forum and market, it was remarkably difficult to find a scrollable widget with the features I wanted. So I figured it might help to start a collection with those I've we've found. ツ

Compatible Home Screen Launchers
  • ADW Launcher free/$$ link
  • Crazy Home free/$$ link
  • dxTop free/$$ link
  • GO Launcher free link
  • HeLauncher free link
  • Home++ free link
  • LauncherPro free/$$ link
  • Open Home free/$$ link
  • Zeam Launcher free link [support discontinued]

Note: While some of these may not provide exactly the size we'd want, most of these launchers let you manually adjust the size to your liking. Combined with Font Size or LCD Density Changer, you can really fit a lot into a tiny space (both $$ and require root).

I'll include links, barcodes, screen caps, and some helpful details. I'd ask others to do the same where possible. Hopefully, we'll see more development around this.

I like AtomaRSS, but I wish they would change their Google Reader authentication method. The idea of putting my password to my email in an app still scares me.

I love scrollable news widget.

If anyone misses the Galaxy S news widget this is a good replacement and you can personalize it!

I use the Pure Messaging Widget trying to replace the Launcher Pro's Twitter and Facebook version while running ADW.

I bought ADW EX and the Pure Messaging widget. And some reason I'm getting force closes. I also don't like Pure Messenger how it keeps launching http://touch.facebook.com every time I click a link vs the Facebook App like Launcher Pro's widget does.

I do like the fact that you can customize and add themes. I like to have my Twitter and facebook full pages and 2 separate apps. It is kind of a pain that you can't save layouts because if one freaks out you have to build it from scratch again.

The end result is nice, but is a pain to keep running and I find that it doesn't like to update when it should although I have both Twitter and Facebook to update 15min.

Just to add on, for those into GTD apps, Due Today has a scrollable widget too. Really powerful app.
