While I don't work on the CNET mobile app, I will forward your feedback/question to the mobile app team.
Why on earth does CNET not have a widget for its Android app?
CNET reviews software, like widgets, all the time. They have wonderful content to fill a widget with. I downloaded the CNET app and I was super excited to put the CNET widget front and center on my home screen. Until I discovered there is no widget! Why??
Please make one. And for all you naysayers (and/or CNET devs): http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HcaLMS67aaU
