Android’s differences in look and feel to the iPhone stand out when you show the home screen. On the iPhone you are greeted with rows and columns of little chicklet style shortcuts. However Android’s home screen is a bit more intuitive, allowing you to set widgets to the home screen that perform functions of the application itself. Now, Google has released its own widget for Buzz to allow for easy access.
The widget itself takes up 4 horizontal icon spaces on the screen and when clicked, takes you to an input screen for your Buzz. You have the ability to, of course, type out a message, but also attach a photo, or launch the camera to take a picture. Below that is an option to show your location (I would not recommend using the location function when at home), and the post button.
The widget requires Android 1.6 and is available only in English. Google recommends searching for “Google Buzz” in the market, but if that doesn’t work, go to the apps section > social > just in, and it should be up towards the top. After installation you can add the widget to any screen in the same way you add any other widget.
