Standard widget sizes

There are six standard widget sizes, based on a Home screen grid of 4 x 4 (portrait) or 4 x 4 (landscape) cells. These dimensions are the bounding boxes for the six standard widget sizes. The contents of typical widgets don't draw to the edge of these dimensions, but fit inside a frame withing the bounding box, as described in Designing a widget.

In portrait orientation, each cell is 80 pixels wide by 100 pixels tall (the diagram shows a cell in portrait orientation). The three supported widget sizes in portrait orientation are:

Cells

Pixels

4 x 1

320 x100

3 x 3

240 x 300

2 x 2

160 x 200

4. If your widget includes buttons, draw them in three states (default, pressed, and selected).

You can download a Photoshop file that contains the three states of the Play button, taken from the Music widget, to analyze the Photoshop settings used for the three standard button effects.
