requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

retrieve running apps
Allows the app to retrieve information about currently and recently running tasks. This may allow the app to discover information about which applications are used on the device.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read calendar events plus confidential information
Allows the app to read all calendar events stored on your phone, including those of friends or co-workers. This may allow the app to share or save your calendar data, regardless of confidentiality or sensitivity.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

control vibration
Allows the app to control the vibrator.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

Google Play Reviews

  1. Aaron Abrams-avatar

    Developer has never addressed this issue that I've had posted here in my review for approximately six months. Used to be able to use TTF fonts that were in my system fonts folder. Now, I cannot. I have tried numerous different fonts with no luck. Uninstalled/reinstalled. Contacted the developer with a detailed description and have received zero response. I've been using this app for years without issue until this issue came up.

  2. Streisand Effect-avatar

    Streisand Effect


    Good interface, settings, and weather data, but with one fatal flaw: it doesn't allow precise positioning of elements. You're limited to just rows that all use the same text alignment and linespacing. Precise positioning is important, especially for small widgets with lots of elements. The rest of the app is very good, so this omission was surprising. Also, the row system was a bit unintuitive at first, and I think without Storage permissions it lost my saved widget (should've warned me).

  3. Himant Kakkar-avatar

    Confusing and too much going on. There is nothing minimalistic about this. All I want is to add custom text note to my home screen. But I just wasted 10 mins trying to figure out this app.

  4. Martyn Bennett-avatar

    Still my favourite customisation app after years of use. The user interface can be a bit confusing but I love it!

  5. Rahul Ahuja-avatar

    Used it to set a quote on my home screen with transparent background. Although the app widget has the option of choosing font, it doesn't let you navigate beyond internal storage folder & sd card to select the font folder. So, in essence, no custom fonts feature.

  6. Brandon M-avatar

    Seem to be buggy, when I would turn my phone on, the text will get super huge. When I restart my phone, it goes back to normal. Uninstalled and will look for something else. The interface needs improving. Really need to simplify it.

  7. Ashe Odinson-avatar

    This app is near perfect. I just wanted to display current weather on my screen, without a bloated weather app running behind it. Not only is this app small on storage space, but it runs on minimal RAM. The only thing that did bother me was choosing the size of the widget BEFORE picking what would go in it, with no apparent resize option. It took 3 tries to pick a widget that would fit my needs, having to start from scratch each time. Otherwise, this is everything I could have asked for.

  8. SSW-avatar

    Time doesn't update when phone is activated! Shouldn't have to go into the app and refresh...fix!

  9. Kevin Wynn-avatar

    This looks like a very basic widget on the surface, but has a ton of optimizations hidden away in the settings. Can be used to make many different types of widgets.

  10. A Google user-avatar

    I used to love this app. I've had it ever since my galaxy s7. I just got the new Galaxy S10 with Android Pie and Samsung one UI, and the 3 widgets that I've always used for battery, weather and time no longer updates on my home screen. help UPDATE** Battery saving feature was putting app to sleep. removed fron sleeping apps list, working great once again.

  11. Neo Kio-avatar

    Simple app to show indicators for events. I use it with Llama app. And still functional for years. BUT Wiki page link for more details inside app doesnt function. Abandoned??? reply Tracy Nevlis Not correct. U can create ur own text and controls.

  12. Matt Fryatt-avatar

    Used to be a great widget app, but the last few months something stopped working and now the widgets either won't load at all or if they do load they don't refresh which isn't great if you're using it as a clock etc. Before this issue it was an easy 5 start app.

  13. I Am Legend A Nevels Icon Progeny-avatar

    I Am Legend A Nevels Icon Progeny


    Contrary to the app description this does not allow you to customize or create your own widget. This is merely for display of clock, time, weather etc or so it claims as those are the only options given when trying to set up the widget however nothing ever shows on the screen except for a simulated loader turning and turning. You cannot add your own text. This is worthless

  14. A Google user-avatar

    The widgets aren't showing up always.. have been manually going in app and refreshing each to make it visible again. THIS IS HAPPENING VERY FREQUENTLY TO THE POINT WHERE I'M NOW FED UP. PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP. MY S10+ NEEDS YOU TO FIX THIS. COME ON!

  15. Ali Sufian-avatar

    I've been using it ever since I got my S8 and love it but last week I got an Andrpid Pie update and the widget hangs up, it doesn't load and shows a circle that usually comes up when it's trying to load something , helppp

  16. Vern Leavell-avatar

    Love the widget. Clock widget time is frequently off by a minute to system clock. Thus the reason for the 3 stars. Two emails to support, no response. Would be five stars.

  17. Kristian Clardie-avatar

    Kristian Clardie


    Doesn't work on Android 10. Weather doesn't update/can't get location.

  18. James Wilson-avatar

    Own the family, pro version. I've used this great text widget making app for years, across all my devices and all my family uses the same pro app, too. If you love to organize, identify, and need/want clickable, directive widgets to help yourself or others quickly find your device's content, this is the widget maker for you! I especially love using text widgets when helping my elderly family members, and my non-technical family members find specific device settings, apps or other daily use content. I can setup actionable widgets that identify with purpose, thank you!

  19. pranay bfiwy-avatar

    I loved the app...but the only flaw I noticed is that sometimes the time doesn't get updated... It's really annoying...what's the point of having this app without proper time ...plzz fix this

  20. Jim Williams-avatar

    You can create some decent clocks with this if you want to fight through the user interface. Building a clock can be an effort in frustration and the process really needs to be improved.

  21. Tonic Chuidian-avatar

    I love the widgets I can put out with this. I only have one gripe. I wish I could put out clocks of different time zones with it. I cant seem to find any way to do that. Please add this feature.

  22. Kevin Reems-avatar

    Preview is sideways in landscape mode. Short Day Text pads a zero which is unusual "02nd". Otherwise this is an amazing app and I am happy to contribute to it's progress.

  23. Lynda Schneider-avatar

    Lynda Schneider


    I purchased this app because I was having a hard time getting it set up and still had a hard time and it never kept the time, i had to restart my phone constantly.

    Been using this for years. Great app, but the weather broke down since the recent wunderground exit update. Tried using personal API keys, but no luck.

  25. doron wolf-avatar

    Bay far the most rebust and configurable text widget I ever seen, ui could be better but still very good, really love it!

  26. Nebojsa Vujat-avatar

    Does not recognize WiFi SSID on new S10. Worked fine on earlier model. Please fix it...

  27. Subrahmanyam Chivukula-avatar

    Subrahmanyam Chivukula


    Excellent app. Can be used to make a great home screen, depending on the creativity of the user.

  28. Avinash N-avatar

    Widget is good, though changing widget size is cumbersome. Also why does a widget need a persistent notification at top that its running. Give me option to remove that notification. Using MiUI 10.

  29. A Google user-avatar

    works great...all my alarms display as being 5 minutes before the set time though...weird

  30. Anna Karpenko-avatar

    great app. one issue: on my lg v30+ I can't export my widgets :(. so now, going to change my phone, and need to redefine them manually...

  31. Zaman Sakib-avatar

    does not allow to use custom text it's just a clock and battery meter and also it leaves a persistent notification stating it's running which won't go away

  32. Tom Feist-Wilson-avatar

    Tom Feist-Wilson


    Fantastic, this app is exactly what I was looking for to add a simple personal message too my home screens.

  33. Kim Chandler-avatar

    Have used this for many years and was 5 clock never refreshes or just shows loading circle.

  34. Olivier-avatar

    Weather doesn't work anymore, don't know what's wrong... I always loved this app

  35. Michelle Lee Lay Hoon-avatar

    Michelle Lee Lay Hoon


    Widget stopped refreshing after most recent OS update. Any ideas how to resolve? Thanks.

  36. Stacy Cudjoe-avatar

    very annoying you can't resise the clock to ur choice of size,or makes this app lack substance enable the option to resize clock after dropping on desktop

  37. Daniel Mitchell-avatar

    Daniel Mitchell


    Awesome, but tricky to navigate complex settings.

  38. salim thiga-avatar

    I can create my own style of widget to match my desire. The app is easy to use and gives great results

  39. satisfiedfool-avatar

  41. Brian Curtis-avatar

    was 5 stars... downgraded because it already freezes on import... can't save either

  42. Lady K-avatar

    Doesn't load app. Don't got time for poor functioning apps. Unistall.

  43. Molly Rushing-avatar

    Small amount of font options. Needs more options

  44. Alan Peck-avatar

    Great app for creating dynamic widgets utilizing Tasker-supplied inputs

  45. Channing Sze-avatar

    it's a flexible and tasker interface is very useful.

  46. SaruCharmed-avatar

    This isn't a text widget at all! You can only display things like time and weather. You can't input the text you want it to say...

  47. Fun entertainment-avatar

    Fun entertainment


    design is good but there have too problem can't update time

  48. Amanda-avatar

    What can you do with this??? It used to offer many (nearly endless) types of widget content! Now very limited? This once great app is a mere shadow of what it once was. Very sad! Is that Google's fault perhaps? I just want Julian date option, and want more easiky seen options for configuring widget. This is also now more inscrutable to use & far less user friendly. Uninstalled :(

  73. Wayne Weaver-avatar

    Weather implantation in this app doesn't work in Android 4.x. This API Key is correctly entered. was working, but now it doesn't. Also getting a prompt for Play Store permissions that do not work on Android 4.x causing the app to force close. I want to use this app on and old Android 4.x tablet as a Wall Clock, but without the weather working, I'll be to try and find something else.

  74. A Google user-avatar

    When I choose a font, I would like to be able to see the font name in the font that it is so i'm not blindly choosing one. I have a huge list & I have to pick 1 then go back to the preview to see what it is & I usually do this about 10 times before I can find what I want. Other customization apps have this simple feature, I would love to see it on this app, too.

  75. ShakiR AhmaD-avatar

    It's more than I thought. Edit(25-04-2020): It's been more than 1 year. please update the app and fix the buggs. Widgets stops working without any reason.(Android9) Even if I exclude them from battery optimization.

  76. Ricky Harding-avatar

    Recent update seems to have forced a notification with no clear way of removing it.

  77. A Google user-avatar

    Superb! Love everything about it.. even made my own text only shortcuts to frequently used apps.. steep learning curve, but amazing once youve got it.

  78. Russ Arnett-avatar

    Works wonders on my screen. The dev is great, he got back to me within 24 hours! Pay for it!!!! It is more than worth it. You will get more than your monies worth, I promise.

    The best home screen labeling app. However, a few times all my widgets including this one get corrupted. I had to add them again. This is really rare as it has only happened twice in a year but only within an hour after the first occurrence. But after I redid all my widgets nothing has happened since. Just bad luck I would say.

  88. Pj Charles-avatar

    Love this app, but would really love to add custom fonts. Followed all directions, but global settings doesn't seem to recognize the sdcard. Any help?

    Does not have good support for oxygen os. Does not pull Temps, system info like memory free or total memory etc.

  90. Tony Gultice-avatar

    Been using this for forever, but as of Android 8.0 it won't read the size of my external SD card, it just returns ?MB as the size, did this on two different phones. Other than that everything works great!

  91. Martin G-avatar

    this works well with tasker enabling me to get tasker variable information displayed on screen as it updates. great for real time monitoring of my home automation devices and their power usage, plus the ability to trigger tasks with a tap or double tap make it a must have.

  92. Bangkok O.G.-avatar

    ★★★★★ I've used these widgets for 6 years. STILL the best, and actually, the only app of it's kind with all the customization possibilities, and ability to tap open any other apps you want. Great work dev creating an app that has really stood the test of time!

  93. Vihree Linja-avatar

    cool. tosi kätevö ohjelma omien vidgettien tekoon.. mulla sää tänään/huomenna , prosessorin ja muistin tila samassa vidgetissä. hetki menee opetella mut sitte tosi helppo käyttönen. Easy to use and plenty of variables to make personalized widgets.
