Widgetsmith App Download

Widgetsmith lets you personalize your home screen like never before.

It starts with a wide collection of highly customizable widgets, which range in function from date, to weather, to astronomy. Each can be adjusted precisely to best fit your desired function and appearance.

This set of widgets can then be dynamically scheduled to appear on your home screen following rules you define. For example, a particular widget could show the weather first thing in the morning, then your calendar during your work day, then switch to your Activity ring progress as you wrap up your day. This lets you take full advantage of each slot on your home screen.

Activity widgets require a paired Apple Watch

The app itself also includes a wide collection of tools, such as a weather app, a timezone converter, a calendar. These tools can automatically launch based on the active widget tapped.

Widgetsmith App User Reviews & Comments

Great Idea ( I Think ? )Ok I downloaded this app after seeing it on the Apple iOS App Store Today Home page . Seems like a great concept ... could possibly use some more features . I just don't like the subscription feature ... I don't like paying for app subscriptions and I try to avoid them at all costs . I feel like with iOS 14 introducing widgets to the system ... something like this app should have been included with iOS 14 and not a paid app from a third party developer . I think my review is more of a criticism of Apple than this app or developer . Hope the developer continues refining this app and possibly offers it for sale at a one time price point rather than subscription . I would guess Apple will be acquiring this developer or app and integrating it into iOS 14 in the future so I am not paying for it right now ..Version: 1.1

Great, Almost!Literally works perfect for me, I haven’t had any issues that the other comments are mentioning either. However, my one complaint is the photo album option. I have three photo widgets on my Home Screen, each with a different album containing only 3 pictures. I thought it would be really cool if they could sync up so I ordered the photos in a specific way in their albums, this is on an iPhone, and than I added the widgets to my Home Screen within seconds of each other. However, it didn’t match up, when I finally got 2 of them to, for some reason, the time they switched photos were different as well. It’s a bummer cause I thought it would be really cool, but oh well. What can you do? The app itself is great though, they have such colourful and customizable options!.Version: 2.1

Great app!!Ok so to be honest this app isn't the very best it could be, BUT I think this app is amazing not only because of the amount of versatility it offers as opposed to other third party apps, but in my opinion it's also the best. Yes sure there are a couple of features that could be better but what i really want to give a round of applause for is the commitment of the developer. Props to you I can see that you've been working so hard to get out new updates that fix all kinds of thing and constantly add new features. I see that every time I go into the app store there's another update and that shows just how committed you are to making this the best possible app. I can't skim over the fact that this is also the BEST 3rd party app for widgets right now so go ahead and download it, you won't be disappointed. I'm so excited to see the new things you bring to this app!!.Version: 1.0.7

Great app, just a few minor thingsOverall this is a very nice app. There are a lot of good things about it, however there are a few minor problems. First off, I want to use a small widget for my school assignments (I usually use the reminders app for them) in the preview all of the text fits and looks very nice, but when I put it on my home screen it only displays 3 out of the 4 assignments that I have, but the 4th one is cut out. I wish that the version on the home screen looks the same as the preview. The battery widget also doesn’t have the battery percentage, which in my opinion kind of defeats the purpose of the widget in the first place. Sometimes there is a glitch when they are grey, but it goes away after a while. Sometimes when I put pictures there is a thin white line on the right side, so it looks strange. Overall, I like this app, but like most things there are a few small issues..Version: 1.1

Good but badI was begging my mom to get it after I saw how you could customize your Home Screen even better. Me being a 53 year old I know what’s best for me so I got permission from my mom by yelling but the stairs. So I was having fun changing my Home Screen but then I seemed to have accident run over my ex, but that didn’t seem right Bc I have never been in a relationship and I’m still a virgin. Well after I realized I killed multiple people from a bus that somehow came into my possession I tried driving home but I couldn’t because I have never left my house Bc I can’t leave my fortnite game. As I started driving I realized that my phone wasent even here. What have I been doing all this time then. It was right there when I realized I love men. So after reading this just remember, if roses are red then the carpet is Jupiter and your garage door needs a new shovel. I hope this helped you with your decision on which potatoes to buy..Version: 2.6.2

Absolutely amazing but..I give this Four Stars because, their are all sorts of widgets that you can use but the problem is some 'accessories'/ decoration for the widget, some of them are not there yet but the6 still show really makes me mad! i sometimes get confused if my internet is not working because i can't see some. My second problem is the 'Photos' this really shouldn't be a problem but.. when you're adjusting you're photo I can't get it at the right spot. You could maybe make all spots adjustable, it would make it more easier to put you're Photo in . My THIRD problem is that I can't find the Fonts that i need! This app really needs like more 𝗧𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗿 it really makes it more pretty/cute for a girl! (I Would Be Very Happy If Some Of My Problems Were Fixed!).Version: 2.4.1

Good but,,,I love this app! my widgets are super cute and i love how cute my phone looks now. I decided to buy the full version for a year because it was pretty cheap per month and i wanted the weather and moon phase widget. However i was really disappointed that i couldnt customize the colors of the weather forecast widget. The grey theme works OK but i’d love it even more if we could customize this like how we can customize the others. Even the moon phase widget would be cool to customize if we could pick a background color. I also would love if the battery icon widget showed the % but that’s not a huge change. I didn’t have a problem with the pictures at all like other people said. Overall i’m satisfied but i feel like i’d be even more happy if they added these quick fixes.Version: 1.0.4

Small issueHi, I have a a little problem with this app. I’ve seen many reviews like this but they all said that they have a grey screen. Mine is black. Let me just tell you the story. So I just got this app 2 days ago because I didn’t know there was an iOS 14 and I was shocked so I download the update. I also downloaded this app too. I was looking for a reference on safari while it was loading. I finished with my widget. The next morning, I wanted to change my picture so I took a picture and upload it to here but the screen is just black. I’ve tried it on many pictures but it’s still the same; and all pictures are brand new, fresh out of my camera roll. If you a creator of this widget app, please fix this issue. I really like this app overall. I think it’s really convenient so I kind of recommend this app..Version: 1.0.7

Solid app. Needs some improvements.I am leaving this review after having the app for about a day. I am using it to be able to view my photo albums as a widget. That in itself is a great feature as the Apple Photos widget doesn’t have that option. I would like to ask the developer to randomize the algorithm a little more though when choosing pictures to display from the album, as I have seen the same pictures cycled through multiple times in a single day. My album has about 400 pictures so I was a little shocked by this. I would also appreciate if the app would give you the option to chose what pictures from the album are displayed. A way to skip through photos would also be nice. Overall solid start to this app and will be happily awaiting more updates..Version: 1.0.2

Personal Customization on Point!I’m here to give you guys a great rating, and to thank you for making my phone look so aesthetically pleasing. Although, I would like to make one request to the developers if this gets to their inbox. My phone looks near perfect, except I keep my Screen Time medium widget on my second page, and it’s stuck gray. I’m running an all B&W theme, (Daring, I know🥴); and would like to ask if you guys could add a Functioning Screen Time widget? Now, I understand if this would violate some policies you can or can’t forego by “looking into our phones for data”, but if this is possible, I wouldn’t doubt that me and many other users would appreciate it! Thanks again for being one of the first developers to hop on the Custom Widget train and making it so simple to do so. Hope this helps!.Version: 2.6.2

Great! Problem is....So I downloaded this app yesterday and I was super excited! There was just one flaw to it (more like 2 flaws...). Every time I go to “choose photo”, it lags like crazy!!! And sometimes it will freeze and I’m scared that it will log me out of the app (but it never does). And the other thing is that, when I was ready to add the widget to my Home Screen, the Widgets were completely blank and grey! It was kinda disappointing because my friend has this and even showed me how it looked and it looked amazing, but when I tried it, nothing happened. Even when I would add it to the Home Screen, there was still nothing on it. Please fix this problem. I’m really looking forward to adding these widgets to my phone but I’m scared that it will still be blank when I try again. But other than what I just explained, it’s a great app! I fully recommend it. Please fix these problems app developer! (Can you pleased also fix the lag?).Version: 1.0.5

Just One ProblemThis app is great and easy to use. But there is one problem I keep having. There is a new trend going around where you customize your home screen using widgets and app icons. You put your favorite tv show, or movie characters, or anything you want you basically make it yours. But say im trying to have a black wallpaper in the background and my widget also happens to have a black background. Every time I try to put the widget down it works but there is a little white line on the right of the widget that to me is very distracting if your trying to make a cool design using all black. Its an easy bug fix thats really frustrating and should be looked at. I even try to crop the photo several times which does absolutely nothing..Version: 1.0.6

Works fairly well, but the custom text doesn’t quite work.I’ve had this app for several months now and haven’t had a problem with it until recently. I don’t know if this is due to an update, but the option for making a widget with custom text has a glitch. You have many options as for the font, however, the first four listed (System, Rounded, New York, and SF Mono) will ONLY show up at the very top of the widget. Even if what you type is more than one line, it shrinks the size of the font down to fit it all in one line at the top. This is very annoying and disappointing. If this can be fixed I would very much appreciate it. P.S. As far as I’ve noticed, this is only with the custom text option, so if you don’t plan on using it, I think it is a great app and quite useful. (That’s why I’m giving it four stars).Version: 2.1.1

LOVE THIS APPI was a bit confused on how to make widgets at first but once I got the hang of it it was really easy. There are so many good themes to choose from but I personally use the custom one. There are also many layouts and types of data you can add and customize and I love how easily and often it syncs with my calendar, reminders, pictures, weather and more. There is also a custom wallpaper maker which I tried out. The only things I don’t like about this app is that whenever I put a widget on my phone home screen, it says Widgetsmith under the widget instead of what I named it. I’m pretty sure that can’t really be fixed as it’s the name of the app. Also the weather widgets are a premium feature in case you were wondering. Overall, I think this is a really great app for anyone in need of amazing looking widgets and highly recommend over other widget apps. You might want look for app icons somewhere else though..Version: 2.6

Very responsive developer! Great new featuresI got this app when ios14 had just came out. Like other reviews said, it had some bugs and things that were not very intuitive. But when I was showing my boyfriend the app this week, I found that there was an update that fixed lots of common frustrations (you can now choose a photo instead of a photo album, custom colors for widgets, etc.). I’m pleasantly surprised that these changes were made so quickly and I’m looking forward to future updates. Thank you for listening to the reviews, I really appreciate it!! P.S. is it possible to remove “Widgetsmith” from under the widget in the home menu? Maybe replace it with some spaces? If that’s an ios14 problem, I totally get it though!.Version: 1.0.5

Great widget app but...This is honestly my favorite widget app to use for customizing my iPhone Home Screen after the new update.. but there is a little bug that’s pretty annoying. After I was done customizing my Home Screen I wanted to add a little extra widget just for fun. I did all the steps I did before, put the picture I wanted into a individual album, picked the album that I wanted to use on the Widgetsmith app and hit save. When I check how it looked like on the Home Screen, it was just the default gray widget (before adding anything). I tried to edit it and just re-select the picture I wanted but that didn’t work. I tried wit other pictures and some worked but others didn’t. I deleted that widget and made a new one. Still didn’t work. I delete the photo, uploaded it again to the Widgetsmith app and it still did not want to work. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem?.Version: 1.0.2

A few things I’d like to be addedFirst, I know it’s important to have your name out there but it kinda destroys the aesthetic to not be able to remove the text under each widget. Second, I wanted to have a little zig zag pattern with apps with the background still flush, however, it does not offer a transparent widget and that would be very nice for a unique arrangement of apps like I had in mind. Instead I had to crop and edit my background to different places so it appeared transparent, but even then switching pages made it look a lot less clean and smooth. Third, I have a calendar widget that shows what I have for events and it’s awesome. However, clicking on it leads me to Widgetsmith instead of more calendar functions. I understand you want more exposure but it’s less user oriented that way. I’m not sure if that’s something you can fix but it would be a fantastic addition. Overall, I think it’s great for a pretty new app and update, but there’s always room for improvement so keep working hard!! Thank you!.Version: 1.0.6

Found the thing that doesn’t make the customized widget openSo basically I downloaded this app to customize my Home Screen after getting the new iOS14 but to my surprise every time I customize my widget and try to add it to my Home Screen it just won’t open and only opens up the standard, default one. I gave this app, at first, a one star review till I found the thing that won’t open up my customized widget. Now when you customize your widget and then save it, you’ll be brought back to the page where you pick between small, medium and large widget so you go to the one which you customize, you click on it and then you’ll see in the middle of the clock your customized widget but look closely on the surrounding areas (outside the clock) and you’ll see the standard, default widget there so you’ll click it and then delete it. After that you’ll get your customized widget! You’re welcome!.Version: 1.0.3

Worked great AT FIRST, but then...I downloaded iOS 14 because I noticed everybody having widgets in their home screens and I thought it was the coolest thing! The set up itself was a bit difficult but the end result made it all worth it. I hadn’t touched anything with my widgets and now all of a sudden the widgets on my home screen are gray. I’ve looked up everything on how to fix it, and even restarted my phone but nothing was working. I’m debating on whether or not to delete the app and just start from scratch but I really don’t want to do that and shouldn’t have to. If you guys could fix this problem, and maybe add features to where we can actually select photos to be on our widget instead of having to create new albums just for the photos we want on the widget, this would greatly be appreciated!.Version: 1.0.7

Amazing app!! just a tiny issue with custom colors thoughGet the app it’s so worth it, it has so many options even if you don’t have premium!!! The only problem I had was with the custom color selector, it’s hard to choose a specific color to match your wallpaper unless it’s the same color as one of the preset colors, and if you have a certain kind of gray then it’s impossible. The app would be SO much better if the custom selector had the option of entering RGB values, a hex number, or even just a wheel that you can adjust the brightness of! If you don’t plan to match your wallpaper, or if your wallpaper is just a basic black or white or other common color, definitely get the app, for those who don’t, wait until it gets updated..Version: 1.1

Really Good Widget App!!!I was actually looking through the other comments and noticed that a lot of them gave lower ratings because they couldn't make an individual photo appear where they wanted it to, but if I'm being honest the only reason why that wouldn't work is because you didn't look carefully at the options they gave you. I made my home screen look exactly how I wanted it too and I didn't have to make any changes to my photos (create new albums) and it worked out perfectly fine. So I ask that if you are leaving a low star rated review you check back on the app and look through your options once more, and carefully I might add. Well, if you've read all the way through this comment I appreciate your dedication and ask that you give a good rating for the app because the creator worked really hard on this!.Version: 1.0.3

Amazing until a few days ago when a bug showed upThis app was amazing and worked pretty much flawlessly, except for some little things that have already been mentioned in the comments. But, yesterday, when I opened my phone I noticed that all the custom text on those specific widgets has been enlarged, so instead of having one word in the center, half of the word is in the center and the other half is a row beneath, or, the word is in the bottom row. This has been a problem for me since it ruins the aesthetic I used to have on my phone and I have many custom text widgets. I really hope this will be fixed soon because this has been my only serious problem with the app..Version: 2.1

A requestI would like to change my apps without buying the premium because then u can use other apps to put in widgets and I might not use this one and, same for other people. But, that is a really hard request to accept so I’m not looking forward to get an actual answer but it would be great if this worked. Over all this is a great app and it’s very easy to insert the widgets without using the short cut app. For people who don’t now what the shortcut app is, it is an app you can install widgets and change the color of your apps, but it’s is pretty complicated to use so I recommend this app more. In consultation, this isn’t the best app you can find to customize your home screen, but it does an decent amount of work to make your Home Screen filled with things/people/characters/colors you like!.Version: 2.6

Does the basics, but needs a few revisionsOverall, the app is good. I think it does its job well enough, but it’s very simple. I like the customizable nature of the app, my home screen looks a lot better since downloading it. The only technical issue I have encountered is that my large widget for my reminders seems to glitch at random points and not list any of my scheduled items. This is not a constant issue, but it does happen every once in a while, as well as taking a while to update once I add a new reminder. The only other complaints I have are a matter of further improving aesthetic and perhaps some future ideas, none of which are deal-breakers for me, but would improve my experience with the app. I don’t particularly like the battery widget as it shows only the battery and not the percentage, which seems almost useless to me, as I have the same symbol showing in the upper right corner of my screen at all times. I also wish that the widgets did not say widgetsmith underneath them (similar to how the name of an app shows under its icon), I would prefer they have no title/caption. My third wish is that the widgets could have customizable shortcuts, so that when I select them, I am taken to the app that corresponds to the widget, rather than simply opening the widgetsmith app. Nonetheless, I recommend this app. It makes me happy to see my home screen much more organized and customized to my aesthetic. I much preferred this app to others similar to it..Version: 1.0.6

Cool idea but it’s glitching1. Everything goes well until I try to add the widget to my Home Screen. When I add a widget and even when I press “edit widget” and select the widget I want, it’s just grayed out. It used to work but it just stopped working and the picture doesn’t show up. I’ve restarted my phone multiple times and everything. What do I do?? 2. And for everyone who is mad that it chooses a random photo from the album, what you need to do is go into the photos app and press “add to album” and then create a new album and label it the description of the photo. For each pic u want on a widget, make a new album and name it. Hope that helped! 3. So yeah, if whoever made this app sees this, can you either fix the grayed out bug or tell me what I can do to fix it myself (because other people don’t seem to be having this problem).Version: 1.0.3

Love it!! just a couple thingsI like this app a lot, I like that my screen looks nice and color-coordinated. What would help me a lot is if I didn’t have to make an album with one photo to get my photo widgets to work. I know a lot of people are having the same problem, it’s not a huge deal right now but it’s definitely a hassle and takes a bit of time. This is a little more picky but I think a lot of people would agree that a custom color option would be AMAZING. Some of the colors just don’t work with what I wanted on my screen, I had to adjust colors to the Widgetsmith colors and it took a very long time. The pinks are a little too salmon-y colored, and the pastel purple looks a little more blue than purple. I don’t know about the other colors since my goal for my Home Screen was pastel pinks, purples, and blues, but I wish I didn’t have to adjust to the Widgetsmith colors. I would also love if I can change the colors of some weather widgets instead of having those bright orange colors..Version: 1.0.6

I think it’s good but needs some workIt seems like people mostly download this app for customizable pictures in their widgets. But sometimes it will turn grey. Also, as soon as I got the new update for this app, it won’t let me add any new widgets. For example when my homepage is in jingle mode and I click the + to add a new widget, I try to look up Widgetsmith but now however, it’s not there! So it won’t let me add new widgets. Also my widgets I already had all turned grey and when I hold down the widget to click on “edit widget” it’s not there anymore! So I can’t even change it at all. Also before I got the update the last few widgets I added were all grey and I couldn’t get the picture I wanted. It’s a really good app and concept but I feel like it also needs to have directions on how to use it and edit widgets on the homepage to change widgets. Also it has bugs that need to be fixed. :( (by the way could you please make it so we can customize the widgets name so it doesn’t just say Widgetsmith?).Version: 1.0.3

I really like the app but there are some things I need to talk about...I love the app and it works really well. But I’m always having problems with two widgets which if I add them to my Home Screen are gray. I have tried everything that I could think of, I turned of my phone, I deleted and re-added the widget, I just tried to see if my widgets in general work (they did), I tried it with a different picture, I tried just letting my phone sit to see if they would load. But nothing worked! I don’t know what to do!?! I also had this problem before and I fixed it by just turning of my phone but that won’t work. The app is still really great and it worked for all my other widgets but now just for those two it won’t work:(.Version: 1.1

Good app but needs some fixesI know iOS 14 and this app is very new still, so i dont think its that bad as a new app. it could use some fixes though. first of all, you’re not able to pick your own photo for the photo option (you can only pick an album, and it picks a random photo from the album) i dont really like this feature since i had to make a bunch of albums for different photos i wanted. so if its possible, having an option to pick your own photo would be a great addition to the app. second of all, the widgets sometimes dont work. i got the app yesterday, and they were working perfectly fine at first. but now the widgets dont seem to show up? i put a widget on the home screen, but then it just shows up gray with nothing on it, and its been going on for the past few hours. this might just be a temporary glitch, but i would also suggest looking into that. overall, its a great app. im excited for whats to come and what new features could be added..Version: 1.0.2

Not Very IntuitiveI downloaded Widgetsmith because I tried out the beta test for Widgeridoo, only to find out you can only create one widget in it before they wanted you to get the Pro version. I wanted to use Widgetsmith to create photo widgets on my homepage, but the problem I had was it didn’t let me choose an individual picture to display; it only let me choose one of my phone’s albums like the normal Photo widget that came with iOS 14, and it would cycle through all of the photos in the album. I tried to give Widgetsmith access to only certain photos, but when I did that it just cycled through the few photos I gave it access to. So, in order to get around this, I had to make individual albums on my phone for each photo. The app is okay otherwise and has some great customization features, but the Photo widgets didn’t work as I expected it to..Version: 1.0.1

AWESOME APP! LISTEN TO THIS!!!!!This is such a good app. You can add a little something to help, and you can also change the way it looks, make a theme! I used short cuts app for the apps, and this app adds awesome touches, I love yellow, song my whole IPAD yes iPad, you can use it on a phone and iPad! Anyway, it all yellow theme. I can add a weather to tell me the weather for each day. I can add calendars, I can even add a yellow or any photo with the date to I give my iPad more awesome adds! If you want some others, you can pay! But it’s optional. That’s only if u want just a little more! I also have a yellow Pinterest bored, so every hour a yellow Pinterest widget turn to a cute pic! This app is awesome and calms me when I look at it. But if you don’t like the cute aesthetic vibes. Just add a plain widget as a helpful thing! I REALLY recommend this app! And not only can u do yellow, u can have themes like a beach vibe! Or pink?! PLEASE get this app!!!! Ps. Sorry it so long, I just had to tell u about it!.Version: 2.4.1

WhyyyyyySo everyone is downloading this app and making their phones look so good. So I downloaded it and it froze my phone completely I had to force restart it. My friend who are using it are loving it, it’s working perfect for them. I realized that my phone wasn’t charging while on charge when I had the app and I didn’t think anything of it, I had like 6 maybe 7 widgets made and my phone froze I couldn’t click on anything. I force restarted it, and I thought maybe I had to many widgets. So ire downloaded it and used two or three widgets it did the same thing. It stopped charging so I deleted the app and the widgets before my phone froze. Then I seen someone have 16 widgets and their phone work fine. I’m so confused I want to use this app so bad but it just won’t work on my phone. I have a new iPhone 11, I’ve only had this phone for 2 months, so I don’t see why it’s not working. Can someone pls help me!!.Version: 1.0.3

AubreyI think that widget smith is a great app to use! I was having trouble trying to get themed widgets and then I added the app. It’s kind of funny because I downloaded the app like a week ago, and I already like it! 🤣 I would definitely say that the app gives my phone a lot of style and let’s me decorate it with things that I like, and it makes my phone seem more personalized to my liking. I also like to put funny stuff on my widgets because my friends and I like to joke around and we are just a funny/goofy group! That is pretty much all I have to say, but I definitely would rate the app a 5/5, and if I was out of ten I would rate it a 10/10 haha 😂. Alright thanks for reading this if ya did bc u probs just had you time wasted! JK JK I actually like the app no worries, and I definitely recommend downloading it!.Version: 2.6.2

Great app but some flawsJust downloaded this after updating to ios 14, and I like it a lot! I have the free version and it’s honestly good enough for me. The only thing I have an issue with is choosing which photos to feature on the widget. I wanted to put two photo widgets on my home screen, one showcasing people photos and the other showing travel photos. However, I came to learn that you can only choose a set of pictures and the two widgets will shuffle through the same pictures. So basically, 2 widgets only use 1 album; you can’t use 2 separate albums. And there’s also another flaw, there’s no button that you can press so you can select to change your photos. It only pops up when you close the app and open it again, and then click on photos. It tells you which album the photos were selected from but you can’t change it unless the notification pops up asking if you want to change your selected photos..Version: 1.0.1

Amazing so far, but...I strongly recommend this app to anyone who wants to redesign their phone and widgets. I have found it to be really cool and really helpful. I only really have one note, and that is to do with the calendar. I don’t really know why, but when I type in the time that I want to add an event to, it continues to change the hour. I found a way to fix it, but for the devs, I think it might be something to try to fix. Essentially what was happening is that it was “correcting” the time that I have set in Eastern Standard Time and moving it by about four hours (usually). I managed to fix it by entering the times again, but it is something that you may want to take a look at. Otherwise, the app is really good and I’ve found it to be super helpful. Thank you devs for getting this together for us. It’s already awesome!.Version: 1.0.4

I love this app!I don’t know why people are saying you can’t choose a custom photo, maybe it’s because it wasn’t available at the time or they were doing it wrong.. but I know it works for me! It’s the only app that works for me actually! The others don’t allow me to choose my own pictures for a specific widget, just put them all in and if it decides it wants to use that one then it will. Which is crap. This one allows me to choose the specific picture and size which is amazing! I also like the fact that we can choose other types of widgets from clocks, pictures, custom texts, and photos (all within the free version)! I only have one issue, you can’t add custom fonts. At least not the way I usually do it, I’ll try again and if it doesn’t work I won’t change my review. Hopefully this will be a feature added in the future..Version: 1.0.3

App with great potential but significant problemsThis review is particularly for those looking to pay for the premium subscription. I decided to pay because I really wanted a weather widget to match my Home Screen aesthetic and this was the only customizable option I could find. At the beginning the only issue I had was that I wished when you clicked the widget it would take you to more detailed weather info, but I understood this is not a weather app so I was fine dealing with that. However, I started to notice that the weather is not accurate to my location. It is significantly off from my local weather and I made sure to double check in the app that I had the right location and settings selected. Because of this, I will be cancelling my subscription to the premium services and cannot recommend until the issue is fixed, but I will continue to use the non-premium version for the photo widgets..Version: 1.0.7

Lots of potentialI love this app, it's very simple and straightforward. Of course since Widgets are a new thing for iOS this app isn't going to be 100% amazing off the bat, but with time it could be. One recommendation I have would be to make the categories (small, medium, and large widgets) page in the app less cluttered. It's a hassle to scroll all the way down every time you want to make a new one. Another future update I'd like to see is being able to zoom in/crop pictures within the app instead of having to modify your original picture. And lastly, I think it would be cool to put a photo behind a calendar! The default colors are nice but it would be cool to customize the calendars a bit more..Version: 1.0.4

Love This App! Needs TweaksI use the app primarily for the photo displays, and it works fantastic! I love having the ability to display an individual photo as well as photo albums. I have about four different widgets on my home screens for this purpose. While the app is great, I would love a few additional features: 1. Provide more control over the next photo timing interval- maybe besides the default timing include options for 1 min., 5 min., 15 min., 30 min., and 60 min. Something like that. 2. Provide the ability to skip to the next photo in an album. Maybe a simple tap on the widget or something similarly intuitive to skip to the next photo in the sequence. 3. Provide an option to have the photos in an album display in the folder order in the widget. I believe the app currently shuffles the order (which I prefer), but having a sequential order option would be nice. 4. Provide the ability to use custom labels for the widgets on the Home Screen. While I understand the idea of promoting the Widgetsmith brand, having that label for every widget placed on the Home Screen isn’t informative/useful. I would like more descriptive customs labels, like the ones the user chooses when creating each widget in the app. Again, this is a great and very useful app. Thank you!!.Version: 1.0.4

A wonderful app that gets the job done, but has a few hiccups.I appreciate this app and how many options it gives me, as well as making it doable and easy. Unfortunately however, I ran into 2 problems. One minor problem is that the name “Widgetsmith” is under each widget. I understand that the company wants their name out there but I would greatly appreciate it if that could go away. A bigger issue I have though is how my widgets will sometimes disappear for no reason. What I mean by this, is that a specific picture in my widget out of the 10 will be gone and it’ll just show the image icon. I never deleted the photo, nor the album, nor the actual widget in the app. I believe this is a glitch unfortunately and I hope it gets fixed soon..Version: 1.1

Small ProblemFirstly the app is amazing. My phone is perfectly customized to my aesthetic and I couldn’t be happier with the look. Unfortunately I noticed that around the beginning of Nov (2020) the widgets aren’t updating correctly any more. My calendar would still say the previous date, or my moon cycle would not be up to date. I also noticed that they look slightly fuzzy or grainy when it’s not correct. The only way I can fix it is to change the calendar to a random widget, the click on the calendar again. But as of lately, it still is grainy. Then the next day it’s stuck to the old date again. When will a update be coming out to fix this? Because I don’t want to have to find a different app but I want all my widgets to be working properly. Please respond so I know these reviews actually do work. Hope to hear from you soon..Version: 1.1

Great but stopped workingI really love the app and have made multiple widgets that work really well and look very aesthetically pleasing. I love how customizable it is and how many options there are. When I was almost done making widgets, however, it stopped working. When I tried making photo widgets following the same exact process, the default grey thing appeared. I couldn’t figure out how to fix it and still hasn’t changed. The time widget and the calendar widget also stopped updating so it’s stuck on 4:34pm and won’t change. The calendar widget also thinks it’s still September 20. Hopefully you come out with a fix for this bug soon because I love the app and would like to fix it. If there is one thing I would change, I would wish that you can remove the “Widgetsmith” name from under every single widget..Version: 1.0.3

Works perfectlyI don’t how people are having problems it’s probably their phone that doesn’t work not the app. I got it two days ago and I was able to use all sizes and put any picture I want in there, and it never freezes or doesn’t let me click on it. I already made my phone look exactly how I imagined and it lets me stack the widgets together to make like a slide show. And all the people saying you need to make a separate album for each are wrong or probably confused. You just have to click on “photo” then look at the bottom of your screen and then tap on “selected photo”then it will let you choose your photo. I think the people you see using albums don’t know how to use the photo button. So yeah I love this app and it worked perfectly. If you see bad reviews ignore them until you tried it out for yourself because obviously it works for some people like me and all the other people online that have been posting videos on how to do it.☺️Have a good day..Version: 1.0.4

Artwork and themeI really like this app, the option to customize your own widget is great. And with the new aesthetics and artwork, it makes my home screen look even better. I would recommend thought to have a way to where people can make their own aesthetic theme and have a way to share it with everyone else using the app. Also if there would be a way for users to create their own artwork, so there can be a way for people to share their creativity, and also nail the aesthetic on their Home Screen just how they want it. I think having customizable art work would be an awesome idea, and a great way for people to share their artistic talent and help others complete their Home Screen. Another thing is that all the widgets are awesome and I love the new artwork, but it’s hard because all of the best artwork is for a premium membership, and it’s a lot to pay for, just to have cool looking widgets. And I do t think many people will be desperate enough to to pay that much just to make their home screen and widgets be aesthetically pleasing. If there was a different way that people could use the Widgetsmith pro artwork and widgets such as, sharing the app with a certain number of people, or rating it on the AppStore and writing suggestions, that would be a way for people who don’t have the extra money to spend on these designs a way to nail their aesthetic..Version: 2.2.1

App reviewTo be honest when I got the new iOS update and downloaded the app it was great ! But then I saw that my widgets started to turn grey with lines. I saw another person having the same problem and I did the same thing. I even deleted the app and it still does it. I’m kinda upset that the fact that I was super excited that my home screen finally looked decent instead of my apps being all over the place. But I refuse to leave this ugly gray squares on my home screen I hope this is a glitch or something. I am paying for the subscription so I expected some kind of great experience out of the app but I hope they fix this soon. If they don’t I’m canceling the subscription and deleting the app !!! But overall the app is okay i would recommend if you want something very typical and just your daily things you want to access or see the time, battery percentage, etc..Version: 1.0.7

Great App, But One ThingI just got this app and so far love it, but I came up with an idea that would be a game changer! I have not gone through the app completely so my apologies if this is already a thing. I love organizing my apps in folders, but I don’t like the way they look. It would be very useful if there was a way you could put a widget over the folder so then I will have it on my screen, but you don’t see the apps in it. For a deeper description, if I made a folder for my school apps, I could put a, for example, small widget of a photo over it. Once you click on the widget, it will take you into the folder of the apps and you move on for there. This way the folder of apps are easily accessible yet hidden. Thank you for such a great app and I hope, if it’s not already a thing, you take my suggestion into consideration!.Version: 1.0.6

Works but not alwaysSo I got this app when iOS 14 came out and it was very easy to use, was able to customize everything how I liked it. Loved that the new update came with more colors and ability to choose a single image rather than an album. However, a few days in, some of the widgets stopped updating the time and the calendar doesn’t update the day. At first I would restart my phone and it would update, but now even that stopped working. I tried removing the widget from my screen and putting it back but it just shows up like a gray square. Now I can’t add any new widgets at all, they all show up as gray squares. The picture ones and reminders still work and I’m scared to touch them so they also don’t turn into grey squares. I don’t know if it’s just a glitch for me or not, but please fix this..Version: 1.0.5

A few glitches, but overall a great app.I just got this app when I updated my phone to ios14 and I love to use this app to make my phone more unique! However, after a day or two of having set widgets on my homescreen, the widgets start to glitch. For example the "date" widget wont change the date for the next day and same with the "temperature" widget. Also, around the same time the other widgets start acting up, the widget that I use to showcase a picture/album gets blurry and also will not change. When I attempt to solve this issue the whole widget will glitch all together and will either show a grey or black screen and I have learned one of the only ways to solve this issue is by deleting all of my widgets + the app and redownloading to start fresh. Also this is a solution, it is very frustrating and annoying to have to completely restart my whole homescreen. I absolutely love this app and I feel that with a few updates and bug fixes, it will be even better than what it is now..Version: 1.0.4

Good app but...I would say this is the best app to customize your widgets compared to the other ones since we’ve had our IOS update but I had to take off a star for as a previous person stated that the widgets will turn gray with lines out of nowhere. I’ve restarted my phone and it still appears gray and even so on for days. It’s also happened to me twice and I had to delete and re-download the app and customize everything all over again. It’s honestly a pain especially if you’re taking a lot of time trying to make your phone look nice. The other minor thing I don’t like is how it says widgetsmith on the bottom. I’d like it better if it didn’t have any title/name under the box but that’s just a minor issue I don’t like personally and can deal with but my MAIN concern is the widgets turning gray. Please fix that!.Version: 1.0.7

Good app but small problemIt’s a good app. I absolutely love this app. I’ve had it ever since the ios14 came out. I have one small little problem with this though. This morning all the widgets on my phone were perfectly fine and they’ve been showing up on my Home Screen, but later today they turned gray with lines over it and I tried to fix it and tried to make the widget picture I put in show up, but it just didn’t. I didn’t erase the app or the widgets because maybe I thought it was just a small glitch, so I just powered on and off my phone and tried again, but apparently the widgets of my choice of photo still didn’t show which made me very upset because without those widgets my Home Screen just doesn’t make sense and the day I rearranged my whole entire Home Screen it took me 4 hours. I googled my problem and it didn’t show anything of what I was going through, but I just wanted to let you guys know that. I also still as of right now, have those widgets up, but it’s just gray with gray lines over it and maybe I’m thinking it’s an iOS issue or something, but it’s been like this for a few hours now..Version: 1.0.6

Looks like the developer works hardWidgets are elegant and much more customisable than alternative apps. Regular updates have also made the UI and feature set quite mature. Privacy policy promises no slurping of personal data, which makes me very happy. Upgraded previous rating after recent feature updates quashed remaining usability issues -home-screen widgets are still a brand new feature to iOS at time of writing, so this is a sign of active development/maintenance..Version: 2.1

Needs to be more customisable.- Needs an option that allows us to select how phone we want the photos in our album Widgets to cycle through: ie change every 2, 3, 5, 10 mins etc - Need an option that we can select our own colours for backgrounds and text. Simple enough to use. Has its limitations..Version: 1.0.2

Best widget app!This is now the best widget app with the updates because before there was some problems with the photos but after the update it just made the app a whole new experience. I love it, and keep the good work up :).Version: 1.0.2

Widget smithI think widget smith is a ok app just I really wanted to use it on my iPad and it only lets me add it to the place where it has the widgets that the iPad has came with not on my Home Screen So if your a person on on a iPad consider using the app it doesn’t real do much but it still does work in some circumstances and by the way I wrote all of this is half a minute and I’m only 10.Version: 2.2.1

Cant get widget smith on iPad when I have the ios14So basically it won’t let me download the app on my iPad but I have ipados14 already so can you tell what I need to do cuz I’ve seen TikTok a of this app it’s likes incredibly amazing and it would be an honour to download this app.Version: 1.0.3

Really good but has some bugsI really like this app because it helps to customise my Home Screen, but there is some bugs. One thing that happens to me is when I try to add a widget on my home screen it goes grey and doesn’t add the photo. It is really annoying because I can’t use it properly. I have made sure I am selecting the right widget and using it properly but it doesn’t do anything and the widget still goes grey. Could you please fix this because I love this app and would like to use it more!.Version: 1.0.3

Confusing but Does it’s JobWidgetsmith for me was very confusing on how to make a widget with a photo attached to it at first but after about 10-15 minutes of tinkering I finally got it to work. Now I might sound like an idiot for this but I really think you should consider making a tutorial or something like that. Thank you for reading my review if you did and I hope you found this helpful..Version: 1.0.7

Love it just some glitchesLove the app and how it lets you customise your Home Screen. I’ve come across a glitch where the blocks randomly become grey and I can’t add anymore widgets to the home screen anymore without them becoming grey. When I updated the app all my widgetsmith widgets turned grey :( Hopefully it can be fixed in the next update because I love this app but it keeps glitching!.Version: 1.0.7

One suggestionI honestly love this app, especially the photo album selection but I just have one suggestion to this option? the photos change every 15 minutes or so but I would really love to be able to make that time shorter, like maybe a feature to change how long the pictures last for? Once again, love the app, it’s absolutely amazing, nothing bad to say about it..Version: 1.0.3

PerfectI have had it for a while. It’s a great way to transform boring widgets into whatever you want! It’s really easy and you don’t even need to unlock everything for it to be enjoyable. All you have to do is pick the size and then you can decorate and transform it into whatever your heart desires. However heads up, if you want to use widgets for an easy access to an app then don’t use Widgetsmith. Since all the widgets from Widgetsmith come from the Widgetsmith app, if you press on a widget you’ll go to the Widgetsmith app. It’s not a problem because if you want an easy acces for an app just you apple shortcuts. I love this app and you should definitely buy it!! -Millie.Version: 2.5.1

Just minor thingsI’d always get blank screen with my widgets and I’d just get so frustrated because whatever I’d do it just wouldn’t work sometimes it would but half of the time it would I have to keep switching between photos to get my one up but sometimes it would just show up a black screen on my widget and I find it very frustrating because I might have just wasted my time doing all of this if all of it goes blank the next day as it said in previous reviews please fix this🥺.Version: 1.1

Can’t get rid of widgetsmith labelThis is a great app. I love how it lets me personalise my apps. I would love to see more edit features (colours, apps, etc.). One big thing I would like to change though is that you can’t seem to get rid of the ‘widgetsmith’ label under the widget, which is a bit annoying. Hopefully this is fixed in the next update too. Keep it up!.Version: 1.0.3

Easy to useThis app is simple to use , the widgets look nice ect . My only gripe is the medium calendar and clock widget freezes and will only catch up time and date if my phone is restarted or I delete the widget and reapply it. . Lots to do in the free version but would only buy if these issues are ironed out . The real time tide clock and weather would be useful ..Version: 1.0.5

Good alternativeSince iPhone is kinda new to this widget game, this provides further customisation which is nicer to have. I immediately replaced the stock date / clock widgets. My only wish is the small date widget has month in it as well instead of just day and date. Otherwise, big kudos to dev for making this nifty app. I’m looking forward to see how this will evolve in near future..Version: 1.0.6

This is a great app! (Just please change one thing)I love this app so much and it lets me customise my Home Screen a lot. There’s just one thing I wish that they would have. If you want to have a reminder widget you can only choose a colour for your background; I’d love to be able to set my own reminder widget background with whatever photo I want. Apart from that this is a great app, highly recommend 😊.Version: 1.0.7

Needs touch upsThe app is creative it’s self but a few things need fixing. Please change the option of letting the app choose what picture we want from our camera roll and let us select it please , and I’m not sure if I’m the only one but once I use the app for a long period of time or make a few amounts of widgets the app crashes and won’t load any of the pictures I’ve chose for the widgets anymore. Please fix this , the app is really great but could be even better :).Version: 1.0.2

⚠️ Some Suggestions ⚠️I enjoy the app so much. I would highly recommend it to families and friends. I just wanted to make a suggestion for a better improvement for this app and the reason why is because I was going through the reviews. 💡maybe remove the “widget-smith” name at the bottom of each widgets that has been added to the Home Screen. 💡more options like people can choose their own picture and a text in there as well. 💡less time consuming by allowing photos to turn into widgetsmith but go to the app in order to add it to home screen. You don’t have to do these things it’s just an idea and something that I thing can improve the app - but yous who made it make that choice. Thanks for you time. Huesca Mamiarisoa.Version: 1.0.6

Grey BoxWow when I downloaded the app and was able to do all this I was amazed, you had the ability to do so much to your phone setup but I had one problem. I restarted my phone, I remade widgets, I made sure permission was granted and yet some not all of my widgets turned into a grey box and widgets that I have made recently even widgets that are default on calendar or such are also grey please help or fix this bug if it is a bug. THANKS!!!.Version: 1.0.3

??? Hello??The app worked fine when I first got it but now I’ve realised two problems where 1) the quality pictures are more blurry and pixilated than it used to be and 2) it shows grey or black blank colour when I try to change or add photos. I hope it’s fixed soon!.Version: 1.0.6

💛Aesthetic and AmazingOk.. I am one to love aesthetics and make it look amazing 🤩. At first I was like??? But after learning and messing around my IPad is so aesthetic and shows everything I want!!! Having the astronomy feature made me super excited for each day to check what the moon is like and when the sun will rise and set. It is super amazing and I haven’t even got any bugs yet so 5 stars ⭐️..Version: 2.5.1

Pretty goodThis app takes a while to figure out but is overall pretty and nice and I have seen people make some very aesthetic home screens with the app. I have also seen people have crashing issues which I haven’t experienced with an iPhone 7. Overall I find this app quite useful and easy to change and play around with. 👌.Version: 1.0.2

Great but some small bugsThis app is great, simple to use and very good in general. However I have noticed a few bugs here and there. When creating a photo widget with a black background there is a thin white line on the right side, this has been like it ever since I got the app (as soon as it was available with iOS 14). Sure hope these bugs will be fixed soon! Otherwise great app and highly recommend..Version: 1.1

Suggestion!I love this!! Makes customising my Home Screen so much more fun and easy. I was hoping if you could add a transparent feature as a background for the widgets. Especially for the larger widgets it would really work well cause you will still be able to see the wallpaper. Great work on this app. I highly recommend!.Version: 1.0.2

Grey BlocksThe app itself is great, it’s just that when I downloaded it, everything was fine and I put in widgets, but the next day when I went to keep using the app, all of the widgets I put on my Home Screen were grey blocks. I tried updating the app, deleting and remaking the widgets, but they’re still just grey! It’s quite annoying to try and make your home screen look good with grey blocks where decorative photos are meant to be.Version: 1.0.2

Good, attractive, plenty of coloursThe Apple widgets are quite plain and boring so it’s nice to have more options. Only downside I’ve found so far is that the “Activity Bar” is stuck in calories even when your activity app is set to kilojoules. Pity because the confusion stops me using that widget. Apart from that, nice colours and fonts and decent calendars and clock faces. Recommended..Version: 1.1

Decent appThe app is great and i had absolutely no problems when i first downloaded it, but i went to add a few more photo widgets today and none of them worked. I tried everything and updated the app, once i updated the app all except for one of my widgets stopped working and went grey..Version: 1.0.5

Nice app & SuggestionsI really like this app! I second the other viewer’s suggestion: introduce the “Photo and text” and “don’t show the word widget smith at the bottom” For me, I don’t think I am going to subscribe the premium plan, but, I won’t mind watching an 1min ad to exchange for some nice, limited time access feature. (The concept is if you want to have that particular feature, let’s say “photo and text”, you gonna have to watch an ad for that feature to be available for one week or so, extend for another 7 days by watching ads!) lol.Version: 2.4.1

AmazingOmg! My friend has a phone and I have an iPad, the other day she showed me her really cute widgets and she said that you could only get them on phones! I was so annoyed. But then I found this app (Widgetsmith) and it’s easy to make cute widgets! The only bad thing is that the widgets only appear on the side of the Home Screen (which I don’t mind) but it would be better to have more placement option on an iPad! It is 100% free and easy to use! 🤗.Version: 2.5

Not workingI loved this app at first, it made my home screen really nice but all of a sudden it was giving me a grey default widget instead of my photo. I even tried restarting my phone to see it that would fix it but it hasn’t. It has happened to my friends aswell not just mine. Would love if you can fix this problem please.Version: 1.0.3

Love!The app is amazing, helped me completely customize my Home Screen, but it would be cool if we could customize the colors of the widget and the text to any color, rather than just the options available!.Version: 1.0.3

Nice appThis app is great on how it helps you with the customization of your iPhone, however it does come with a few bugs or glitches. I have the medium widget on my home screen with a calendar on the right and a clock on the left, the clock’s hands sometimes freeze and stop moving, for instance the time was 11:30 for me but the clock’s hands were on 7:00. I really hope this gets fixed in future updates, hopefully very soon. Thank you for this great app.Version: 1.0.2

More colours pleaseI’m loving the app so far! My home screens look better than ever! My only request would be more colour options for tint and background. Specifically, the pale purple background seems a little more blue to me, and I’d love a more purple one to match the rest of the aesthetic on my phone. More colours in general would just be fab for extra customisation and coordination!.Version: 1.0.5

AMAZING appI absolutely love this app. My friend recommended it to me and i have had sooooooooo much fun with it! I love the colourful themes and the fact that you can add photos as well. I think that it is a really fun way to get information easily, and is just a great app in general..Version: 2.2.2

Great but some problemsThis app is great it makes the personalisation more detailed but there is a problem When I chose the option to make the widget something from my album, it showed the picture at the beginning but then it began to show up as grey of just default. Please fix this as it is quite annoying,,.Version: 1.0.1

A suggestionI really love the customisation of Widgetsmith and that I can get my Home Screen looking awesome. However, I wish it was a bit more practical rather than just for aesthetics. For example, on the calendar, I would love for it to take me to my calendar when I click on the widget. And the clock to my alarms, and so forth. Just like how the standard ones that come with iPhone do..Version: 1.0.7

AwesomeThis app is the best app for widgets, although you can pay for premium there are still heaps of other things you can do without premium I would recommend this app even if you don’t want to spend money 5 stars :).Version: 2.4.1

EEK 😬😅🤩🥳😝 EmojiHey, this is the most best app I ever had there is nothing wrong except for when I updated the app it went crazy!🤪. I updated the app and I could only use 5 colours, only small for the widget to be but it’s the best app😀 If you can maybe give it a look at because it has been really weird but don’t worry I’ve told people about it so a lot of my friends and family have the app so you will get 5 rating stars ⭐️ a lot!!! BEST APP IN THE 🌏 Eek 😬 😎Widget Smith😎.Version: 2.5.1

Super awesomeI’ve had no problems with it and I hghly recommend! There are so many options (I’m using the free version and there’s so much to use I can’t even imagine what choices premium has) 10 stars if I could Keep up the good work.Version: 1.1

Update issues?!Updated my app and now all my widgets have turned black with no picture. I tried deleting and reusing the same widgets, also tried to making new widgets of various sizes but they all turn out the same now. Widgetsmith was working perfectly beforehand so I don't know what the update has done to make my phone react this way! Great ideas and great app, somewhat subpar at the moment in my own experience.Version: 1.0.3

Widget titlesGod it feels so good to add photos as widgets, I used to just hide every single app into one folder and just keep my background clean, but now this added the layer of depth I required, however I love the widgets but I wish there was an option to turn off the widget title underneath, so that it’d just be the photo, but over all amazing..Version: 1.0.5

Problem with Clock optionIt’s a very good app to customise my widgets however I’ve noticed that there is a problem worth the clock and date widget. They won’t update by themselves on my Home Screen but when I go in the app, it shows the correct time. The only way to have a temporarily correct reading is if I edit the widget to refresh it (on my home page). Please fix this soon. Other that, this is a nice app to manage your widgets..Version: 1.0.3

Is it only me?I got the IOS 14 update, and I was super-excited to start customizing my widgets and my home screen. I was watching a tutorial online, then it told me to get this app. Outcome- pretty good! But the problem here is glitch. Yes, glitch. When choosing a colour and theme, I can’t even scroll down! I have to restart my device multiple times, then it can scroll down to choose my desired colour. But then I can’t press it! I jab my finger on mint green at least 50 times, and It can’t press! It needs at least 6 restarts for it to work. As I mentioned, at the end it looks pretty good. But the process takes 2 hours….Version: 2.6.2

Really good but also annoyingAt first, the app was amazing! Everyone was working and it looked awesome on my Home Screen. But today, everyone I made a widget and set it to a image, it turned GREY! It is really annoying and can you please fix it really soon? Cause right now I am really annoyed at the app and hopefully it improves..Version: 1.0.3

Great app!This app is really good especially with the customisation. There has been a conspiracy theory that the app is a key logger and hacks into your accounts; this isn’t true, these claims have been shut down by many IOS developers..Version: 1.0.6

Hard to use when trying to get the photo widget to workI find it really hard to use to get the photo widget to work. This is mainly because there are no instructions or anything to help me. But it’s overall a really great app.Version: 1.1

IOS 14Since IOS 4 came out this app was so useful to make my background colour coordinated, and just way more organised and more easy to use so overall love this app probably, it could be way more better if you could make all your widgets a little bit more organised so you can probably make groups that you want some widgets to go in there seperate groups. Sincerely Don Pacino..Version: 1.0.6

Very good just one feature I would loveNow I think I speak on behalf of a lot of people this is a good app but it would be even better if we could change the display name on our Home Screen on photo widgets because when it just says Widgetsmith it’s pretty boring anyways plsss add this it would change my life.Version: 2.6

Showing greyI really like this app, it made my homescreen look cool but sometimes the pictures wont load. It keeps showing grey, i even restarted my phone to see if it works again but it didnt, i was wondering if u could fix this bug but overall this app is really nice..Version: 1.0.1

Omg I’m obsessedThe app is actually really good it doesn’t restrict you to anything and you can go with whatever theme you like and that’s my favourite part! I love Kpop so I created a blush pink theme around it. It looks really lovely and it’s so cute, my friends give me so many compliments about how cute and or pretty it is. I’m super happy with what the app has turned out to be versus how I thought it was.Version: 2.5.1

Very good but bug fix neededThe app has so many customizable options and its the best app to customize on an iphone so far! But one minor thing is that when I added all my widgets on my Home Screen and restarted my settings for another thing for my phone the next day all of a sudden all my widgets are blank with just black except for one and I tried every fixes I searched up but it doesn’t seem to work and I think it’s a bug in the app that is doing this. Please consider this and make a update that would be very appreciated thank you. 😊.Version: 1.0.6
