Buggy but off to a good start.

I was looking for a way to put text over an image for a widget and this app gave me just that... with a price though. I had to redo the widget several times, but after 20ish minutes I finally got it. Some issues are that the “button” area for the boxes seem to be all over the place and I’d have to click several cm away from the actual boxes to select them. Also sometimes, text randomly gets bigger or smaller and colors change. However, I’m sure the dev will fix these too so I’m not too upset. All in all, a great start!

Nicely done app

Before downloading/purchasing the app, I looked at the reviews. Some people said they saw a few bugs that needed to be fixed but otherwise said it’s a great app. I decided to give it a try. I am glad I did! This app is a bit quirky but I am sure the very responsive dev (one of the reasons I decided to try the app) will fix the few bugs. Overall it’s a great app and lets you do a lot of things with much more coming soon I bet. I love that I can customize the entire look & feel of every aspect of a widget that you create.

You may ask why I gave it a 5 star review if the app has a few bugs...Besides it being a great app overall, I did so because every bug that has been reported the dev quickly addressed so I gave the app 5 stars because the dev is very responsive that is a trait that is hard to come by these days and should be applauded.

I look forward to see what other features gets added to this app!

Confusing widgets that can't be edited 😕

I appreciate the developer's response to my original review.

Interestingly, the response says that only the first widget is available to users unless they buy the app. That's fine. However, the app on my iPad clearly states "select a widget in the list on the left". So, that's what I did and one reason I found it confusing. It says nothing about only having access to one widget.

The app's usability might be better if it did two things:

1. Clearly separate free vs purchasable widgets.
2. Let users see the contents of purchasable widgets, but not change them.

Confusing widgets that can't be edited 😕

Three examples:

- The compact widget evidently has an area for a photo, possibly a contact photo. On my device, there's just an icon there. There's no way to set the photo, contact, or whatever it is. Instead, if I tap on it, the app asks me for money.

- 3 of the widgets have what appear to be circular graphs with data in them. There's no way to tell what these graphs represent. If I tap on them to try to find out, the app asks me for money.

- The calendar widget is picking calendar entries from Calendar's that I have access to, but that I don't use. If I try to find a way to set the calendars, the app asks me for money.

This might be a good app, but I can't tell based on the widgets provided.

Developer Response ,

You can fully edit the first widget in the free version and you can add one own widget too. To try all features before you buy. I think that’s fair.
