Developing for Android is really fun, as you have probably noticed if you want to have a wide user base you will have to give your application for free on the Android Market. From there, you have different way to monetize your application, you can limit features and unlock them in a payed version, display ads in free version and provide a way to disable ads (in-app purchase for example). In this article I will explain how to detect ad blocking in your applications.
Android features a standard widget for displaying the pictures of your choice on your desktop, it’s a good and frequently used widget by all Android users (which means used more and more each day !).
The only thing missing from the standard widget is its only 2×2 size available. By using recent alternative launchers (ADW Launcher / LauncherPro Plus) you can resize the widget on your home screen but picture scaling is very poor.
The idea behing Big Photo Frame Widget is to fix the scaling issue of the original widget and to provide different sizes : 2×3 / 3×2 / 3×3 / 4×4. By the way, the widget is free, but if you want to support me, don’t hesitate to hit the donate link !

as some of you may know, I am a frequent reader (less frequent writer) on modaco’s forum. Specially in the Acer Liquid’s section (good device so far with an unbelieveable community).
I found a thread talking about the lack of a task switching widget (http://bit.ly/cMYqDt) and so I did my best to do such a thing.
If you want to go straight to the download part, scan the following QRCode with your device, else go to the read more part.
