Ratings and Reviews
Ok ok everybody calm down
Ok yes- there are no instructions and tons of choices and customizations. Ok yes when you try and pick something other than Safari as your default browser or Apple mail as your default email - you can’t. And yes when you try and pick a theme or set a wallpaper it says “invalid password or user doesn’t have one” which is made all the more frustrating as there is also nowhere to create a profile or password BUT- if you wait when the error message goes away there you’ll find a white rectangle with a plus sign in it. Tap it, choose a picture from your camera roll and voila! You have a wallpaper.
As for all the other things they really have nothing to do with why you’d want this app.
Does it provide a dial pad directly on your widget screen? Yes? Can you add contacts from your contact list to the MC widget that you can just tap and call, message, tweet, FaceTime, instagram whatever all from the widget — YES!
Does it provide an extras widget for more one tap contacts if you fill up the main one? YES!
This is why I wanted the app. No more opening each app for each way you want to contact someone PLUS you can also make one touch group widgets to contact a whole group at once from the widget.
Yes it takes some tapping around to figure it all out and yes the app maker is shooting himself in the foot not making some detailed instructional videos because they’ll always be folks (cough cough see other reviews cough cough) who don’t want to have to figure anything out and if they can’t open the app and have it work with no effort will rate it poorly and say it doesn’t work.
It works and is really darn good at what it does. As for all the little customizations and frilly things not so much and to figure it out you’re on your own but trust me- it’s worth the effort. I really REALLY like what this app does.
Doesn’t work-widget screen is blank gray square
After opening this app, it gives a brief tutorial to add the app in the widget screen but only shows empty grey square after added to the widget screen. Does not ask permission to access contacts and when went to settings, it asks if wants Apple mail or Microsoft Outlook; no other options. Again in settings, no place to toggle on for access to contacts which since the purpose is to be able to access and call contacts from widget screen, not sure why this is not requested. Additional note: After pressing various buttons, finally found how to give permission to access contacts but I would recommend that that should be added to the tutorial as it is not intuitive within the app! Or actually make it easier, like have it pop up when open app or toggle on within settings. Also even after gave permission to access contacts, it STILL is a blank gray square.
As one of the previous reviewers stated it is almost impossible to figure out how to access contacts. To use your contacts in the app, you have to add them one at a time as opposed to accessing your contact list or groups. Deleting the app, I spent way to much time trying to figure out how to just get started.
