I think it’s good but needs some work
It 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?)
good app but needs some fixes
i 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.
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?
Not Very Intuitive
I 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.
Really good app but a few problems
When it does work, I absolutely love this app, but the thing is that’s not always. Usually, you have to re-download it in order for it to work, so you have to get it, delete it, and then download it again in order for the widgets to show up. It also can be really difficult to just set a single picture as a widget, which you can do but you’d have to create an entire album of just that photo. I really like the app, but I just think it could be executed way better, so maybe you guys could fix small things like that.
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.
Amazing App, Minor Issues
The app is amazing for customizing my home screen to my preferred aesthetic. They only thing the app lacks is more color swatches overall and a better system to select photos. The colors they already have are good but they are generally are deeper colors. It causes problems because the background, border, and font colors clash very often due to the limited choices. One of the great things about this app is adding your own photos to the home screen. However doing so proves difficult because it selects a photo at random from your photo album. Being able to tap into the photo album and select the picture yourself would be so much better. But the app is still amazing and the two issues seem easy to fix!!
It works very well, but to a certain limit
For me, I was able to get most of everything I wanted for my cute aesthetic IOS14 background. Whenever I would want to add more or I added it and I didn’t quite like how it was those times, it would either appear gray or black. The weird thing is is that when I am able to edit the widget, I am able to get the ones I previously did but not the brand new one I made. I redownloaded it and restarted my phone and it stayed the same when I wanted to add a new one. I would suggest getting an update soon fixing this problem, so we can add more than we want and it being able to work and an easier efficient way to get what we want for the widget
Don’t get me wrong, this app is amazing and so great to use for customizing your phone and/or IPad. But there’s a lot of glitches that could be fixed. There’s a glitch where when you have only one large widget(this happens for any size) and you try to add it, it will put a default widget instead. This was really frustrating since I couldn’t add the widget. There was also this thing where I couldn’t add another small widget because it kept adding the one I made before. This was also really frustrating. Besides that, the app is great and I 10/10 recommend. This was just to state some glitches I experienced. Thanks for reading!
Works perfectly but a few annoyances
I use this app for custom photos on my widgets, and it works perfectly. There’s no limit to the number of widgets I can make, and I can also create widget stacks with my photos. However, one thing that constantly annoys me is that if you want to use a specific photo, you have to create a whole new album in your photos app to use it, since Widgetsmith doesn’t have the option to select a specific photo, only a specific album. It would be really great to be able to select specific photos. I also love the other widget options, such as the sunset and stars widgets, but it would be even better if there was more customization involved. For example, you’re limited to certain colors for the widgets, and for the blank widget option, it would be cool to be able to add your own text if wanted. Otherwise, this is one of the best widget apps out there, and there’s so much you can do!! Update: they added new features!!!! Thank you so much this app has been a lifechanger
It’s really dumb that you have to pay for weather
Overall it helps you make a few cute widgets but you have to pay $24 dollars a year JUST to have the weather widget which is honestly crazy when it’s an apple app. Its not like they even have to do anything for the weather. Honestly its pretty upsetting. If it was like $2 dollars to buy a weather widget that would be okay but no.. again... TWENTY FOUR DOLLARS A YEAR. It’s excessive!! You also cant change the name of the widget to “Calendar” or “clock” it will always say “Widgetsmith”. If you want a few simple cute widgets then i guess its okay but just remember there are limits and it has an excessive price. Oh and there aren’t even a lot of options for background colors, the only “aesthetic” one is the pastel pink but all the other ones are bright and extra
Loving Customized Widgets.
Really liking this app a lot. Has a bunch of customizing with the widgets and it allows a person to truly personalize the iPhone. The one thing I wasn’t crazy about is a subscription service to access the premium widgets. I’m just not entirely sure if that is something I would want to pay for on a regular basis. However, the all is great and I certainly wouldn’t have minded paying a flat fee for this app at all. A few suggestions from me would be: 1. Remove Widgetsmith from beneath the widget. 2. Offer a small free trial to the premium service so potential customers can get a feel for it and determine if that is what they are wanting. 3. If possible, make interactive widgets. This is something I wish Apple would have done with their widgets. For example, the Apple Music widget would have been nice to actually have the controls right in the widget for play, pause, skip and so on. 4. Again, nice app and I like the direction it is going. Always evolve it and it will never become stale.
Great app - easy to use!
I was able to learn quickly with widgets using this app and playing around it. I like having the options of the different sizes of the widgets, different fonts, different colors, and my own custom text and photos. Something I would like to be on this app is more fonts (maybe the ones like on Word or Google Docs). I would like more color collection (more shades of the main colors such as red, blue, purple, yellow, pink, etc). One last thing I would LOVE is being able to change what the widget says. Instead of all my widgets from this app saying “Widgetsmith”, I think a cool custom text would be nice :)
Love it but...
Ok so this app I’m in love, I literally spend all my day o. This to personalize my hom screen, buttttt, the problem is, that for me, sometimes it be all good but then when I try to put the pictures again they turn grey and don’t turn to the picture I want it to, so I waited a whole day to load and it still was on the color grey, so I deleted it and installed it again, for a while it worked fine, but then again it did the same thing and I have to do it all over again, so can y’all please fix that problem, thanks
Does it pop up grey? Here’s how to fix it.
To clear up any confusion for the people that only get a grey square when trying to add the widget, click on it until the 3D Touch section pops up and it will give you 3 options. Click the one that says edit widget. Then click again on a the word widget when it pops up and then scroll till you find the widget you were trying to add in the first place, that is if you saved it. It’s a really great app to customize your IOS 14 device.
