Keep a Website on Your Home Screen in a Widget with WebSnap

Have you ever come across a webpage that you wanted to keep checking every few minutes, but didn’t want to keep a browser tab (or the browser itself) open for doing so, or have you ever felt too lazy to keep hitting refresh? With free app WebSnap, you can keep an eye on the information you need, right from your Android home screen without having to worry about any of the above.

Brought to us by XDA Forum Member canhnv, WebSnap essentially lets you take a snapshot of any web page or part of a page and display it on your Android home screen with a refresh interval of your choice. This can come really handy for any news or sports story you are following, an online cam feed enjoy glancing at every now and then, or just about any piece of info from the interwebz that you want to keep an eye on.

WebSnap is currently in beta and doesn’t feature ads. You can learn more in the application thread and download it directly from Google Play.
