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.

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.

That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
