Shelly Palmer Radio Report – September 24, 2014

Third-party widgets have been a staple on Android for years, but they’ve finally made their way to iDevices with iOS 8. Sort of, anyway.

The App Store has allowed automatic updates since iOS 7, so chances are good you’re all set there. Next, head into Notification Center by swiping down from the top of your home screen.
