Ratings and Reviews
Oh dear 😢
Sadly, this is not a helpful update. This app has been brilliant for me, but now it is so confusing. I have lost the great set-up I had, managed to sort of get it back though, but now when I go to open an app it opens the app plus it opens the actual “launcher” app as well. I had “special” launchers for things like “disc space” and “days till” which are now no longer available.
I get that you want to update the app and also make it so that it can be used with the new widgets in iOS 14. And I was excited and expectant of what you guys were gonna do. But sadly you need to fix it back to how it was, at least so that we get to keep what we had, albeit in the new updated version you’ve done. Plus, I’ve paid £2.99 for the upgrade to this new premium version.
So not a happy customer I’m afraid 😢
Problems with iPhone X
This app makes widgets very useful, particularly if you have many apps on your phone like me.
I put my most used ones there so I have a quick short cut.
I have individual plalists, songs, podcasts and language learning tracks set up which is a whole lot quicker, and more efficient, then going and searching in the music app.
The added music player widget is nice to have too.
I have another widget with different settings set up(keyboard, safari, storage, battery, Icloud storage etc) so rather then going into settings, and guessing which section gives me the relevant section, I simply swipe down and touch the relevant widget.
Update: sadly apple revived the individual settings launchers...
You can even change the widget icons.
It's intuitive, and improves my work flow considerably.
One app short cut I wish was there is scrivener, but it's a new app so it may come in a future update.
Highly recommended if you want to save time.
I paid for the premium for £7.99 in the hope I could get more apps in a large widget. This worked perfectly, however I had to delete the app as the only thing that put me off was the badge icons. Unfortunately if you rely heavily on badge icons for emails, texts, Facebook etc, they don’t show up on the widget. If this is something that could be implemented in the en future, then I’d rate this 5* and will definitely re-download.
