Has your AW reduced your need for iOS widgets?

I don't know why it took me so long to realize this, but basically my AW has almost eliminated the need for iOS Widgets.

Widgets I use:
- Waze
- Fantistical
- Weather Underground
- Team Stream (for scores)
- TV show tracker
- Lose it

Widgets I need, that can't be replicated on the AW:
- Waze


Has anyone else re-thought how they use Widgets, now that they have an AW?

Love Team Stream, though can be a bit embarrassing in a meeting, esp. the teams I follow :eek: But seriously its a great excuse to own AW.

Hadn't even thought of how my widget usage changed because I rarely used them before the AW.

But yeah, most of them have definitely been replaced. I did add one called Steve, though:
