HTC develops own Widgets for its Eris/Hero smartphones

HTC makes four Widgets for own Android phones

Handset maker HTC has released four Widgets it has developed in-house for the Android operating system. The apps are only compatible with HTC's own Hero and Eris smartphone twins, however. The four low-key apps include a tip calculator, a dice throwing app, a today-in-history app and a battery utility.

The latter two are the only apps that need any form of explanation, with the former giving users facts about milestones that happened in years past on the current date, while the battery app gives users detailed information on their battery charge level, type and even temperature.

It is expected that HTC will release more of its own apps soon, but whether they will be compatible with Android phones from other manufacturers is unknown at this point. [via AndroidCentral]
