Top 5 widgets for your iPhone and iPad (Video)

We’ve talked about iOS 8 and all the new and useful features plenty of times now, but we haven’t had the chance to focus on those individual features and, more importantly, the third-party support for said features.

One of our favorites, which actually surprised us, was the introduction of widgets in the Today section of Notification Center. These widgets display different types of at-a-glance information, provide shortcuts to different features or settings, and even help your remember things.

There are dozens (maybe even hundreds or thousands) of applications which have been updated with widgets. So where do you begin your search for iOS 8 widgets? What are the must-haves? We did the legwork for you. See which ones made our top five in the iOS 8 widgets video below!
