Magnets let's you create collaborative Widgets that can be shared with and updated by your friends. Think of them like fridge magnets or sticky notes. A place where your friends can leave messages for you.

The Widget will update on your and your friends Homescreen when someone updates a Magnet with a new photo.

What’s New

Version 1.2.1

iPad support is here!

With this update, we're introducing full iPad support. You can now create and share Magnets with friends and see their pictures on your iPad's Homescreen. Updates to a Magnet will sync between iPhone and iPad, so you can always see the latest photos.

Let us know what you think - we're @MagnetsApp on Twitter.

Cool app

Would love to be able to make a slide show album that people on the shared link could add to and the widget would shuffle through on an interval.

One picture that completely disappears when someone adds a new one is a little annoying.

I kind of see this as one of those WiFi photo frames people used to give family members at holidays.

Would be cool to setup an auto rotating widget on a family members phone we could add to

Does Not Work at All

Unfortunately, every time I open Magnets, it directs me to open Settings and sign into my iCloud account. I am already signed in; so signed in! Made sure that Magnets toggle was green. Still, I cannot get past the screen that tells me to go to Settings to sign in to iCloud. There is no developer's website for instructions about the settings, just a redirect to a Twitter feed. That is useless. I am not setting up a Twitter account! Zero stars for app support. So disappointed, after reading all the hype about this app.

I thought the problem might have something to do with beta testing new versions of iOS 14.2 on my iPhone. But, I put the Magnets update on my iPad. I still get the screen that redirects me to Settings with the directive to login to my iCloud account. This is so exasperating! I AM logged into my iCloud account. On my iPad, my iPad Pro, two personal MacBook Pros, my iMac, my work MacBook Pro, my iPhone, and my Watch. I cannot be anymore logged in!

Developer Response ,

We're very sorry to hear that and are looking into this issue. What helped in similar cases is verifying that Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive is enabled as well. We hope that helps.

Great idea that can even be better

This works as advertised. One feature that would make it better is if there could be more than one photo that changes in the widget, similar to a photo frame.
