When Windows Vista was released, we were introduced to Gadgets, which were small applications that ran in a sidebar on your desktop. These apps did things like show you the date, time, weather, or even a slide show. This tradition has continued in Windows 7, but I’m still not fond of the ones that Microsoft ships by default. Strangely enough, HTC has released a program that has many of the same functions as the Windows Gadgets.
If you have an HTC phone, you’re likely familiar with the Widgets that are available for it. Do you wish that you could have those very same widgets on your desktop computer? Well you can. HTC Home takes all of the widgets you know and love, such as weather viewer, clock, and FriendStream, and makes them available on your Windows PC. Even if you don’t have one of their phones, this might be an interesting download.
