Excellent Design + Room to Improve

The UX of the widgets is so clean and thoroughly considered that it feels totally native to my phone. Absolutely love the granular level of customization to type and backgrounds. There are a few areas with room for improvement. Number one being the need for shortcuts to be installed for some apps to integrate. The second, when searching the ‘Don’t see your app?’ nav, the shadow element around the search bar makes the first result untappable. I’m still in free trial but have already noticed a difference in how this app interrupts time wasting habits, and I’ll probably spring for the lifetime upgrade when it’s time.

UPDATE: After a few more days of use the experience is still overwhelmingly positive but a few more snags became apparent. 1 the ‘Add apps’ search would make more sense as an alphabetized list of apps already installed on a user’s device vs the current system of jumbled apps from the entire app store. 2 the experience of moving apps between widgets could be improved, possibly with a birds eye view UI or checkbox editing system. 3 a shortcut that automates changing the phone wallpaper to match the light/dark mode widgets would make for a much more integrated feeling with iOS (this used to be easy enough for users to setup natively but since iOS 16 wallpapers have become kind of a pain)

Good app. Missing the last umph to make it a great app.

The app does exactly what it says it’s going to done. My Home Screen is clean, minimal, and focused.

The major downsides/issues are:
- There’s only a predefined list of apps that you can add to your Home Screen list. All the major ones are covered, but we all have niche apps we use that won’t be available. I imagine this is a limitation of Apple, but it still hurts user experience. You’ll have to create Apple Shortcuts instead.
- I’d like either (1) a little bit more customization of how apps are assigned to widgets or (2) an infinitely scrollable widget. The separate pages with a fixed number of apps breaks up the flow/grouping of many of my apps.

An app that cares about our digital wellbeing

This might be my first ever app review. This app is amazing. It uses the “out of sight, out of mind” approach by offering a minimalist layout that is functional and effective. I set this up to turn my phone into more of a utility phone and it almost makes me wonder why I bought an iPhone 15 since my screen time has drastically dropped. I have been using this app since my iPhone SE days. Which brings me to the point about how awesome the developer(s) are! When I set up this app on my brand new iPhone 15, I noticed there was a glitch with setting up my Google Tasks Blank. I was pretty bummed and emailed the developer thinking it might take months until it gets resolved, however I got a reply within the next hour and the issue was fixed almost instantly. That dedication and professionalism is top tier! Since that interaction I paid for the full service and am a huge fan. The only con of this app is there’s still plenty apps that need some support, but the most popular are already optimized for blank and the library has been expanding. Do not sleep on this app!
