The how and why of third-party music widgets

35

Music makes us better. Their widgets need to get better.

Music is a very important function of my phone, and it's the most important widget on my home screen. If I can only fit one widget on my screen around my totally awesome wallpapers, it's the music widget. Problem is, a lot of widgets from the top music streaming apps just don't look that great. They have buttons we don't need, they don't have the buttons we want, they don't resize well, and they just don't get along with a lot of themes.

Thankfully, we have choices.

The best way to set up your fingerprint on the Galaxy S7

54

It's super easy to set up, but making it work perfectly can take some time.

For the most part, setting up and using the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S7 is exactly as easy as it's supposed to be. You go through the 13-part process of recording your finger on the sensor, and in exchange you get the ability to unlock your phone quickly and use your fingerprint as your password wherever it is supported.

As long as you're down with using your fingerprint like this, it's one of the best setups available today. That is, as long as you set it up correctly.
