Home screens 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.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Best custom widgets in the game
The amount you can do with this app is incredible. The customization is definitely the best out there after everything else I’ve tried.
The only thing I don’t like that much is that it has to open the app if you want to open an app though the widget and so there’s a bit of a delay. Also if you want to open a shortcut it not only opens the widget app, it opens the shortcut app as well creating an even bigger delay and you now have three more apps open. I don’t know if that is able to be fixed, given apple’s weird policy, but either way it’s a big step from other widget apps out there. Also a lot of apps that are able to be opened from it was limited (again probably Apple), so there’s not as much I can launch from the widget anymore, but even so my home screen is something I’ve only dreamed of. So I’d say give it a chance.
