Handwidgets functions as a program launch pad, adding your chosen programs and programs you can access by signing up with HandCase. Shown below are 6 of these packages and what they contain.

By signing up, you will receive the following: Games, Monthly News, Free Updates. HandCase plans to offer 70 widgets a year.
