Placing Your Widget on the Home Screen
The usability experts on the Android development team did a great job of allowing application widgets to be easily added to the Home screen. Adding one is easy — follow these steps:
1. Open the application list on the Home screen of the emulator.
2. When the list of applications is visible, select Widgets.
3. Choose Silent Mode Toggle, as shown in Figure 7-4.

You have now added the Silent Mode Toggle widget to the Home screen, as shown in Figure 7-5. You can tap the icon to change the ringer mode, and the background changes accordingly. (Refer to Figure 7-2.)
