Description

Desktops can be pretty bland and useless. If we did anything to theme them, it's mostly straight out of a template. That's not Widgy.

With Widgy, your home screen becomes YOUR home screen. You can make any kind of widget imaginable that perfectly matches the rest of your aesthetics. All the information you need can be easily surfaced through a widget that you designed. You don't have to clutter your screen with the information you don't want, it's just what you want, how you want it.

• It's simple to make a widget •

You don't need to be a professional designer, you just need to know what you want. Once you figure that out, it's a matter of letting your creativity flow. Just add an element, pick a data source, throw on some effects, and put it where you want. Then repeat to add another element. After a while, you'll have a perfect widget, and all you need to do is to assign it to a widget slot and drop it on your home screen. There it is, marvelous!

The Widgy editor only has two parts. The preview and the layer list. When editing a layer, you get a couple of different sections that let you tweak the appearance and data of that layer. Each section has several special things you can do to the layer. The Preview will always show you a live display of exactly how the widget will look on your home screen, so you don't have to constantly go back and forth between the editor and home screen.

• Everything you need •

Widgy provides all the different elements that you would ever need to make your widget perfect. Along with that, there are all the data sources you could ever need, everything from system info to weather. And with all these data sources, there are several ways to display the data, whether it's a text, a nice chart, or something else.

• There's no limits •

This isn't an app full of templates, everything is 100% customizable and interchangeable. It's your widget, and you choose how to make it. The only limit is your imagination.

• Sharing and discovering is easy •

You can privately share widgets with your friends or publicly with all Widgy users, all with a couple of taps. You can share your widget as a URL, QR Code, JSON data, a file, or you can publish it to be shown in the Explore section for all the Widgy users to see.

Other than the Explore section, Reddit (r/Widgy) and Discord communities have produced thousands of Widgy widgets so far. So if you just want to browse widgets or if you need some inspiration you can get that too!

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.

Simply incredible

This app is as said, simply incredible. I never leave reviews for apps but for this I felt necessary. The ui and tools provided are extremely intuitive to use, it truly is like photoshop for widgets. If you don’t want to make your own widgets, there is a very well developed community in the explore tab on the app as well as on the Reddit page where thousands of talented designers can submit their designs for you to use in your set up. Not to mention that the developer is extremely accessible with in the Reddit page, and he truly listens to his community and implements features that the community wants. After messing around with the free version when I first got Widgy, I decided it was fully worth the money to buy the full version just to support the developer alone. This app is incredible and if you are debating honestly just do it. The amount of joy I’ve gotten out of just a widget app alone, creating and submitting my widgets to the community is outstanding, easily one of my favorite apps I’ve ever gotten.

A learning curve, but extensive possibilities

I really enjoy this app. I've tried out several custom widget makers and this one seemed the most extensive and user friendly. The free version allows you to place one lock and one home (I was able to use transparent background). And for a lot of people that may be enough, remember you can create more than one and switch them out. But I decided to buy the unlocked versions so I could place multiple lock screen widgets. I love that there's no subscription fee, just one time purchase. There's definitely a learning curve, the flexibility requires a lot of features. But it's worth the time and effort if you want a really custom widget. But the pre-made ones are great too if you don't want to take the time to create your own. My only issue is that with a tap action, the widget opens Widgy first, then the app stored as the tap action. If your tap action is a Shortcut, then it opens Widgy, opens Shortcuts, then opens the app. So Very Frustrating! Although I'm guessing it's an Apple restrictions rather than a Widgy programming error similar to Shortcuts. It would be nice if there was an option to remove any touch action from a widget, including opening Widgy.

Amazing app for customization

Like the title says. Widgy is the goat for customizing widgets and making your phone look unique. The amount of data available from your device is overwhelming at first but once you try you hand at making a couple or browsing the community made widgets it becomes pretty clear. My only real complaints are 1 the weather is very inaccurate. At least for me, It displays a temp that’s about 7-10 degrees off of my stock weather app. I could live with 2-3 but it’s a large gap to where I’d rather not use weather and use the stock weather app. Disappointing but not a real deal breaker for me. My second issue is with the “reminders” app. Although there are workarounds to display upcoming reminders, a cleaner easier way to select specific lists and display only that list would make this a 5 star app for me regardless of the weather issue. Overall I love the customization this app brings and the community on Reddit is huge for beginners. Love the app, hope it gets regular updates. If you like it, Support the devs so they can keep improving the app!

TLDR; Weather 7-10 degrees off of current location and reminders could use an update to select a specific list to display.
