    Looks very powerful. I really wish it supported larger icons. I'm trying to set up a phone for an elderly parent. With poor eyesight and shaky fingers being able to create 2x2 and 3x3 size icons would be great.

    Very useful for renaming icons that had names too long to fit. Also for making shortcuts to folders. One issue I don't know how to solve is this: How can I permanently remove widgets that were created with Shortcut Maker? Removed widgets keep reappearing after my phone is Restarted. Using Shortcut Maker, I created 2 widgets of Folders. Then I decided I did not like those names and Icons. So I made 2 new widgets with different names and Icons. After I Remove the original widgets, they keep coming back, after my phone is Restarted. This is on a UMIDIGI A9 Pro phone running Android 11. What is the trick to permanently remove these widgets? Clearing cache didn't help.

    Good app for creating custom icons for all apps. Only thing is, once the shortcut is created, the menu that appears on long tapping the shortcut will be blank all the shortcuts created. If it has the same content like the original icon does (for example, the default icon for the Phone app has the options Missed Calls, Search and Create Contact) then people like me who do not like the icon shape of the Samsung One UI will find it really awesome if that is added! 😁

    Update on previous 4 star review. 5 stars for app and another star for developer help and response. I'll give another if a future update includes a direct shortcut to text a contact also. This app certainly a winner.

    Edit 2: Already tried "open with" and it won't let me choose the file manager, just the in-app Folder UI. Edit: Still awesome, but I REALLY wish the folder shortcuts detected the built-in file manager. Works fine for individual files but folder shortcuts won't detect it as a viable option. Original: The app is outright awesome. It works alright without having to download a launcher and best of all THE SHORTCUTS PERSIST AFTER UNINSTALLATION! Which, I can't overstate how good and useful that is.

    PLEASE READ HERE: make it little quick like if I share a youtube video lecture from youtube to this app then it should automatically take title as name of shortcut and thumbnail ( or favicon of website) as icon of shortcut and I should be able to create shortcut in one click. infact make it a floating app such that I share link to this and instantly get "add to home screen option" floating with all details taken itself.

    Good UI, shortcuts seem to stop working after a while on pixel launcher though. Sent feedback for my errors but had this issue before. There should be a way to keep the names you've called the files and direct it to a new link, currently it just tried to send my mp3 to poweramp and I get "storage unmounted". I had issues with the app not even working when I clicked the links and crashing as well, there should be some check that the path actually exists and if not it prompts you to locate it.

    Good app but I have a few things to say 1. There is a bug in the app (For me at least) where you can't change the aperance or image for an app on a galaxy S10+ if I try to do it part of the app crashes and brings me to the home screen 2. A nice feature to be added is adding your own custom Image for the app logo but keep it in the normal app shape (in my case that's a rounded square) Other than that the app is really good!

    Great app, with so many options in one place. Suggestion: for website shortcuts add an option to fetch/use the destination website favicon. This is what another app does, and it's great, but that app is specifically for Website Shortcuts, and needing a dedicated application solely for that one specific situation (website shortcuts) isn't great.

    Easy to use, clean interfase, comprehensive, very useful for many things, BUT shortcuts to folders open only in its own app, and the only options available for files inside are open, delete, or rename. It needs "copy" and "move". Ideally, one should be able to configure the shortcut to use another app to open the folder
