    All,

    I finally purchased my Nexus 7, so I'm now part of the family here!

    My question... Has anyone experienced trying to add new widgets to the device from Google Play? I have attempted to add a few and they don't appear in the "Widget" section in the apps drawer. Any suggestions?

    The one in particular I'm trying to use is the OG Droid Weather/News app (GenieWidget.apk). I can launch the app as an app, but there isn't any option for a widget. I've used it on almost all of my Android devices including the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, S4 and my old Droid Bionic. I also downloaded another "weather" type widget (forgot the name) from the Google Play store and had the same problem. Any suggestions?

    I don't believe the app has been updated to support 4.3 I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that's what is causing the issue.

    Actually, I found the .apk on an older device and I loaded it on my tablet... It works! Thanks for the suggestions!
