Hello...if this question has been asked and answered, I apologize. I downloaded a widget today from google play. When pressing home screen, it does not give an option for widget. A screen comes up with other options. Did a factory reset, two weeks ago. Thanks....

Do you have ICS now? With ICS, you have to go to the Apps screen, swipe over until you get to Widgets (or just touch Widgets at the top of the screen), and look there. Then long press the widget and drag/drop to the homescreen.
If you still don't see the widget, there is a known problem where widgets don't always show up immediately after downloading and installing. Sometimes you have to wait a few minutes, sometimes you have to reboot.
Thanks for this posting. I have been struggling with the finding the widget issue for over a week and suddenly had the idea to search on "no widgets on long press" and found this. It solved a problem I was having and the widget maker's tech support could not assist me with.
that's a solution but what if you've lost your app launcher in the docking area. Somehow it disappeared recently, which is another issue, so I can't ever get to my list of apps to drag and drop to a page.
