Using widgets vs Launching apps which is easy ?

PS : I know that the android wifi on/off, brightness widget is really neat widget and its hard to argue that its useless

I'm an App launching fan. Widgets are distracting on the home screen. The SIII only has four lines of apps (not including dock, and there's room for more), and the default weather widget fills half the screen. The screen looks so awkward with these three row widgets with an awkward gap in the screen.

If done well, the widgets are fine, especially with a vanilla android application, but I neither miss them nor would I use them in an iOS setting, unless something reall drastic is done.

iphone badly needs a wifi widget. every time i want to switch on/off wifi I must tap twice (at least) and slide your finger once. I think it takes too much time.

You have my vote. Why don't they include it (and further more: why don't they allow 3rd party software to do so) is just beyond. The most annoying thing on an iPhone. I can add a WiFi on/off shortcut to my home screen on my Nokia E5... and Symbian isn't the best user friendly OS in my book....
