    How does it work if you add lots of widgets to the notification center? Does it just become a long scrolling process to get to what you want to see? OR does this work some other way?

    Thanks.

    Long scrolling list, I'm afraid. You can't even collapse on the whim.

    A long scrolling list seems to defeat the point for me at least of what a widget should be, something to look at quickly to get what you need from it.

    1. Can you change the order that widgets display?
    2. Can you dismiss a widget to remove it temporarily from the list?

    Thanks.

    You also get a LOT of battery usage while doing nothing.

    Didn't even think of battery usage....can you control how often the widgets refresh themselves?

    1. Yes.
    2. You have to hide it completely. There's no temporary way to hide them.
