Create, prototype, collaborate and bring your ideas to life with the widget design platform everyone is talking about.

• Design like you always imagined •

The complete workflow and every part of the app have been designed to give you everything you need to create the best widgets possible.

• Bring your ideas to life •

From pixel-perfect icons to hundreds of data sources Widgy is the perfect tool to design, create, test, and iterate.

• No templates •

This is not another "customize the template" kind of app. You add elements, position them, pick their appearance, and what kind of data they use.

• Fast, powerful, and just the right amount of everything •

Turn your ideas into a stunning reality, faster. Widgy is packed with tools to help you effortlessly design any kind of widget you like.

• Create high-fidelity designs for any screen •

Due to grid design and smart tools, your widget will look great on other devices too.

• Keep everyone in sync •

Share your designs in form of QR code, JSON, or a tiny file.

NOTE: Widgy optionally integrates with Apple Health. This integration is used to display your data if you select one of those widget types. Permission for Widgy to access this data is controlled through the Apple Health app.

As with Health, all other permissions for Widgy are optional and are there just to show you the data you want to be displayed.

Those who wait will receive greatness

I have been waiting for a while now to finally make my own 100% customizable widgets. This app is genuinely one of a kind and you will not regret getting it. You have so many options it's like a kid in a candy shop, you can even import others widgy's (check Reddit for some) and rock it yourself. What's not to love about this app. Come on now, the only purchase is more slots, to which I think is very generous on the developer’s part. I’ve been checking to join it’s beta everyday, but now I can make any widget my heart desires! This app surpasses all the widget apps and I couldn’t be more thankful! Thank you Duke and all the helpers!!!!!!!!! I hope your app makes it to #1! 💗

🎯 I finally have an amazing Home Screen

I was skeptical. At first, I only saw Widgys that were geeky, cluttered, or some combination of the two. Most also shared the screen with app icons (which are about as appealing as litter along the side of the road).

However, a few Widgys were different. So, I downloaded some QR codes. The editor took a little getting used to, but in the long run, Widgys were easy to modify. I eventually came up which something that I thoroughly enjoy looking at when I unlock my phone.

u/duke4e, I have one suggestion. You need some screenshots here that show what Widgys look like on a Home Screen. That’s what gets people interested in this app, not the internals of how it works 😬

Best Widget Creator Out There

Widgy completely changed the aesthetics of my Home Screen. The fact that you can create your own widget from scratch and make it look how you want it to look is incredible. Truly the only fully customizable widget creator out there. I am amazed with how intuitive the UI is. Sure, at first I was a bit overwhelmed, but once you start playing around with the app, you’ll get the hang of it and want to keep creating different widgets. Would definitely recommend this app over any other for widget creation.
