iPhone Screenshots


Widgif brings your home screen to life with a collection of widgets, custom photo themes and seasonal favorites.

The app has been optimized to improve widget performance on new and old iPhones.

Apple Watch users can now monitor their health with the new heart rate Widgif (*readings can be delayed). Access to your health data is optional and private. You can manage your access to this data through Settings -> Health -> Data -> Widgif.

Yes, the animations are slow. But, Widgif is the only app with non-static widgets. Widgifs are only capable of 1 FPS animations due to WidgetKit's current limitations. All animated Widgifs are handmade in order to work within the app. It's the 'secret sauce' that brings them to life. *Gifs are not supported from your camera roll, yet.

I want to help improve your home screen widget experience. My door is always open and feedback is welcome!

More Widgif themes and gif customizations are on the way!

What’s New

Version 2.0

Widgif version 2.0 celebrates a year of animated widgets. Thank you all for your continued support and kind messages.

This update is optimized for iOS 15 and its custom themes bring your home screen to life:
– Animated jack-o'-lantern to celebrate Halloween
– Track your heart rate in 3 new widget sizes
– Animated hearts for your loved ones
– Many custom photo Widgifs
– Bordered twinkling lights
– Squashed a few bugs
– Winter is coming..

Note: The heart rate Widgif requires a paired Apple Watch.

Thanks for using Widgif! I'm continuously working on new features behind the scenes. If you like my app, please consider adding a rating and review.

Has potential

Please add support for gifs from camera roll. Also a plain square with no winter or other theme going on with it would be nice

I just paid for this app and used my own gifs and they do not play on the widgets. Very disappointing, but I’m keeping the app bc I paid for it and future updates may happen

Did not work

Expected to put gifs on my Home Screen and got only static images with crappy overlays. I paid for this app for nothing, very disappointed. I wish I could refund it 😩

Developer Response ,

I'm very sorry that you were disappointed with my Widgif app. Please know that the app description states that the app is unable to import gifs from a user's camera roll due to limitations in Apple's WidgetKit library. Widgif is unique in that it brings templated widget animations to liven up your home screen. Again, apologies for your experience, but please refer to an app's description before deciding to leave a 1-star rating.
