HTC’s Drew Bamford, writing about the work that went in to Sense 4:
During our research, a few consistent patterns emerged:
-Most people don’t differentiate between apps and widgets.
-Widgets aren’t widely used – weather, clock and music are the most used and after that, fewer than 10% of customers use any other widgets.
-Most of you don’t modify your home screens much. In fact, after the first month of use, approximately 80% of you don’t change your home screens any more.
Yet, until Apple adds these things, some will continue to claim that iOS feels stagnant.
