the new update suckss - Good app but small problem
It’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.
DrFog - Does the basics, but needs a few revisions
Overall, 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.
Kyle JC - A few things I’d like to be added
First, 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!
valeria..1717 - 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?)
Liz ✌🏼 - Works perfectly
I 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.
POtO!ln2? - love it!! just a couple things
I 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.
becs2270 - 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.
CandyGalaxy - 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?)
ihc.08 - 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.
fev7 - Found the thing that doesn’t make the customized widget open
So 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!
nat5644 - 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?
glamlifegru - 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!!
Ttsweet12 - 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.
"Honestly Ron" - 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!
Jd3243 - Great app but some flaws
Just 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.
doordashwithcash - great but stopped working
I 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.
nickname mee - Small issue
Hi, 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.
Stephiiiiiii - App with great potential but significant problems
This 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.
Woflo - AMAZING, idk why so many one starts
THIS APP IS GREAT FIR IOS 14 LIKE IT MAKES YOUR HIME SCREEN SO GOOD AND IT WAS REALKY EASY TO SET UP! Ok I’m just going to get my mom to show her this app and she is not going on a trip so I’m not going on the same day so I’m not going on the same page and she said that she would be ok if she is going on a date with me or I don’t think she is ok I don’t know what about to say I though it was a joke she is not really sure tyi I would have to go back and get it to you see if she is not mad or I just don’t want her I know that I just want you guys out and I don’t think know why I don’t know what if you want me to do it I know that I’m not really sure how you are doing it I’m just going to get you a good time and I’m just going to get a hold of you you guys don’t know why I don’t want you guys don’t want me to do anything with your family I know you you know I love it
_kayysea - 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!
Raylee Watley - Great App, But One Thing
I 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!
Test4echoes - Love This App! Needs Tweaks
I 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!!
Dragonfire10944 - 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!
Helen Edelman - App review
To 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.
Jackir30 - 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!
Toprating2k15 - 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.
SpicyDino - Very responsive developer! Great new features
I 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!
Red Ocean Studios - 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.
Roel Guzzy - 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.
Maddieburd - Whyyyyyy
So 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!!
PudTastic - Cool idea but it’s glitching
1. 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)
Juulianna B - 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
mxnnycastillo - Lots of potential
I 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.
Royal Ryan 863 - Just One Problem
This 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.
K3l51k - I hope to see more growth!
I’ve enjoyed seeing my home screen transform into the aesthetic of my dreams with the help of this app! My favorite aspect has to be having a visual of the moon phases and being able to place photos of any size all over my screen. Incredible.
However, and that’s just a medium sized however, I’m not sure if my $20 yearly membership is justified. For reference, the app Facetune yearly is about double and does a hecc lot more. For that reason, I took off a star but I understand they’re still in development so I’m expecting greatness to come! Note to the developers: for the large temperature widget, the color is this b l i n d i n g neon yellow that wildly shakes off my phone’s warm neutrals and earth tones so color customization options would be helpful there, thanks 🖤
MelLibs821 - Works but not always
So 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.
𝒋𝒂𝒏𝒂𝒆 - 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!!
viki is kewl - Love it but I’ve been having problems
Overall I love this app! It makes my screen look so cool. I like how in the new update you can choose your own photos instead of having to use a album. Before I updated the app some of my widgets started to turn gray and when I put a photo in it wouldn’t show up. I did some research and then realized I should update the app. I updated the app with hopes that my widgets would show. But my photos didn’t show up. The widgets went from grey to black. I’m not sure if this is just a problem that I’m having with my phone or it’s a overall problem. I’ve tried restarting my phone but that didn’t work. I’m planning on redownloading the app but I’m not sure if the apps will save my widgets.
HelloItIsMe123 - Great App!
I personally love having widgets on my screen to fit my aesthetic, and widgetsmith is definitely one of my favorites. It works great for me, and I haven't had a problem with it at all. I do have a few suggestions of things I would love to have included with this app. For example, an option for photos on the time widgets, more shades of colors to pick easily (the custom color thing is tricky), transparent widgets, and (if it's possible) have a way to remove the word under the widget. It would fit better with people's aesthetic, and just have the screen appear more clear and organized. This app is super simple, and I would definitely recommend it to people!
Ligsmfsd - Flaws but so much potential to become better!! Love it but here are some of my annoyances
When I first got widget, when I wanted to add a widget it the screen turned gray. I had to google the problem and turns out I had to delete the app and redownload it in order to get the new upgrades. New upgrades are awesome but now all my widget won’t open and the photo quality/ quality on all the widgets are pixelated and not clear like when I just put them in. I don’t want to have to always have to delete the app and redownload it in order to have to update the app. So my complaints are the pixelated quality on the widgets and having to delete the app and re download it in order to get an updated version. Other than that the app is super great with just these little annoying factors
Readandrunmom - Only medium sized widget with a multi day forecast widget I can find
My kid loves Widgetsmith because they are on TikTok and uses it to make their iPhone screens look really cool. I finally checked it out too and paid the subscription fee because it’s the only app that I could find that has a medium-sized widget that displays a multi day forecast. I don’t give a hoot about an hour by hour forecast. I don’t understand why all the weather widgets only offer that forecast for medium sized widgets. I also don’t want to devote an entire large widget to the weather. Also, as a photographer and a person who lives right by the beach, I use the high/low tide and sunset/sunrise widgets a lot. Thanks for this handy tool!
Kyla 🔮 - Color Options
It’s a great app! Unfortunately I do have a complaint, rather small one actually. It would have been two when I was first designing my Home Screen with the whole picture choosing thing, but after reading some reviews it looks like that has been resolved! All I’d like is to be able to change the color of the weather function. As you can probably guess, greens/yellows/oranges are not my current aesthetic. I did pay for the year membership, so I’d like to be able to happily use that one day. Again, it’s a really small complaint. If the color can already be changed, I’m sorry for overlooking and kindly ask where that would be at. 😹 Thank you for reading!
defaultfeelings - Love the app just one problem
I absolutely love this app. I love being able to customize everything to my liking, but today I believe it was after I updated the app my widgets went grey with lines through them and I’ve tried everything to fix it but nothing working. I am a little upset about that because now my Home Screen just doesn’t make sense, I just figure this is a minor bug and will be fixed soon, I know a lot others are having this similar issue and so far I don’t know anyone who’s fixed it. Please I know not only myself but everyone experiencing this issue would love for the problem to be solved very soon.
Dawsonh27 - Really bad..
So the new update came out and I love customization especially with apple and when I saw the widgets it looked super cool so I decided to do it...after wasting about 4-5 hours of my day just getting the app to work properly and set the pictures I have chosen sometimes it doesn’t even do it and all the Apple support things to help you be able to have a better chance at getting things to work has just not worked..nothing works properly on this app and I’d say to not download and try this until it is at least 2-3 years down the line of being fully developed instead of what I feel like is a tester to see how things work I’m on the second day now and I am writing this review already after 3 hours of trying again it is just straight up disappointing and pointless to have for the iPhone.
rhemakidd87 - Just a few ideas
I just downloaded this app which was recommended by a YouTuber named Zollotech. I do love the app and the customization ability that it has. But if i may suggest adding the ability to make the widgets translucent. Apple’s running themes seem to be very translucent which i do love. But if these beautiful custom widgets from Widgetsmith made that an option that would be great. And it doesn’t have to be like apple’s dark and light themes but maybe a translucent color? And now that i think about it. What about widgets that can change from light to dark themes? Like i said these are recommendations that i think would make an already great app even greater.
Ash................. - Not great
This app has great potential, but fails at execution.
First of all- there needs to be a way to get the “WIDGETSMITH” writing under each widget. Obviously if I care enough to design all these custom options to make my phone a certain way... I DONT want your name on each screen 3x. That alone is why I’ll be deleting the app until there’s a solution.
Second- the timed widget feature does not work. I have a timed widget set to be a calendar during specific hours, and then the star field during the remaining night time hours. Well- the star field never works. It never comes on. I’ve tried deleting the widget countless times and starting fresh, restarting my phone, nothing works. I even went to the widget to edit which one was viewable, and selected star field manually- and it still didn’t work. All I see is calendar.
tml_101 - Great app, great features but some suggestions
This is a great app. I love all the choices you get and the options you can use to customize them. I also like the timed widgets because I thought that the smart rotate feature on Apple’s Smart Stack was exactly what a timed widget is on this app.
A few suggestions tho....
Possibly a few more widgets? Some recommendations might be:
A stocks widget, if your into that kinda thing :)
Maybe a countdown widget to a specific date/time?
I’m out of ideas, I will make a new review if I come up with more widget ideas.
Selecting times not just on the hour, but the minute would be amazing (ex: a calendar widget that appears on 2:15 AM and changes at 1:26 PM)
The ability to set different days of the week where some actions won’t run (ex: turning off the calendar widget from the last suggestion off on the weekends, but keeping every other automatic timed widget working during the weekends)
That’s all I got, great app, but a few suggestions.
If I think of more suggestions I will make a review under the same nickname tml_101!
Booknerd68 - Love it!
I had some issues a few days ago with my widgets turning grey, but I redownloaded the app with the new update and it works great! I really only use it to add photos to my Home Screen, so I love that I can now pick a single photo to add rather than having to select an album. I also appreciate how the dev has been so vocal about the fact that he acknowledges the bugs and is working hard to fix them. This app really blew up quickly and everything is so new so the bugs are bound to happen, but one of the main reasons I didn’t give up on this app was because I saw his status updates; I’m so glad I gave it a second chance!
KittyLovef - Glitch
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!
akfjficjsb - Extremely Frustrated
I downloaded this app thinking it was going to be great but I have been highly disappointed. First off, since downloading the app, my phone has done nothing but glitch out. The second day after downloading it, the app would not open for me when I clicked on it. It also would not remove it from my Home Screen no matter how many times I tried. Every other app I could remove and get into just fine. Second, my phone keeps glitching out so can’t use it, the pull down bar won’t let me open notifications, and my power off buttons won’t pull up the slide to turn it off so I keep having to go to setting to restart. Third, even when I set the date and time widget to something I like, when I come back it’s changed to something else. Overall I’m extremely frustrated, I still cannot delete it off my phone.

Jenna Shin - Very good but bug fix needed
The 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. 😊
Grumpy McGrumpFace - Good, but just one small improvement needed.
However... GMT cannot be used as a timezone for world clock widgets in this app. This makes it of limited use to me as a world clock widget. I would add an extra star if this is fixed.
These are not dealbreakers like the lack of GMT, but I would upgrade an additional star for a couple improvements to the calendars (the static decorative ones, not the ones linked to outlook, which I haven’t tested) - First day of week changed to Sunday and day of week headings added. Weekend shading would probably work as a substitute in the smaller versions.
Amin Rahmany - Nice app
This 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
RoseMcKenzy - ⚠️ 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.
user-unavailable - one suggestion
I 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.
TheJackMeister99 - Grey Box
Wow 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!!!
serpifeu - Good alternative
Since 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.
M_L456 - Really good but has some bugs
I 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!
elrifaimya - Needs touch ups
The 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 :)
7jdjdhddydhdhhdhd - IOS 14
Since 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.
TiK tAk LoVeR 🔥🥵🍺🦵 - Confusing but Does it’s Job
Widgetsmith 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.
TheBookWorm9542 - 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 😊
Celebs17272728 - A suggestion
I 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.
potterhead215 - Problem with Clock option
It’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.
FarawayZu - Grey Blocks
The 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
Evkav - More colours please
I’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!
happycustomerlovethisapp - 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!
robbiexsander - ??? 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!
Susiesyc97 - Can’t get rid of widgetsmith label
This 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!
savdood - Easy to use
This 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 .
Aimxeezee - Pretty good
This 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. 👌
AnotherSpaceCowboy - Widget titles
God 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.
widgetuser1234 - Love it just some glitches
Love 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!
arianag251993 - really good but also annoying
At 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.
Nico Nico-Nii - 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
Gi4nh0e7 - showing grey
i 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.
claudiadeocera24805796 - Cant get widget smith on iPad when I have the ios14
So 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
Amityjensenleigh0405 - Not working
I 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
chloemchiu - Pls fix this
I know many people have said this but I will address it again. Whenever I try to add a widget on to my Home Screen, the widget turns grey and I’m selecting the right widgets and everything but this is a big problem. :(
Please fix this ASAP. Thank you
Sennatara - 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!
lshhebbdis - Great but some problems
This 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,,
Regretful Update - 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.
joshy_mp4 - 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.
mollsxxx368998643 - decent app
the 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.
skully04372 - 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 :)
jytdyr - Please don’t download this
I have used widget smith and color smith for my iPhone screen but I found out that this app and colour smith is a scam and a hacker. If you download this app there is a likely chance you WILL get hacked by it, all over social media has been saying this app has hacked them and took all there money and social media accounts. Please don’t let yourself or your kids download this, this method is very dangerous good luck and stay safe. 🙏🏼
gthanh.pham - not enough colour palettes
This app is great overall. However, there are too little amount of colours available, this app should let people change and choose colours on their own, it should be better!
popular sisi - Not letting me put on Home Screen page
So I’ve seen on the internet people’s Home Screen widgets and apps different colours and widgets with photo and things on their page. When I add a widget, it doesn’t go on the page. It goes on the side thingy. I drag it on the page and let go to place it but it disappears and goes back to the side thing.
I love the widget things!
Lyrresh - Awesome
I have been using Widgetsmith a lot know for it’s great customisation and other great qualities. I am on iPad-OS 14.0.1 and the widgets still stay on the side but Widgetsmith adds a little more colour and more better colours and ideas than the apple widgets
app reveiw writer! - Creative
This app is very creative and I like how it made it so easy for me to use and my Home Screen is amazing full of widgets of my family and freinds! I love my new iOS 14 Home Screen because of this app I love it more!
txchou - Great app
Great app and glad to hear about how it came about on the Talk Show podcast! Congrats and thanks for making an awesome app. I’m surprised you didn’t think it would blow up. People on TikTok are marketing the bajeebus out of WidgetSmith!
Coedianna - Ability to rename the widgets
More widgets would be cool, and if they connected to the actual app too. Like, the calendar widget doesn’t open up calendar. The ability to use our own names for the widgets too, instead of “widgetsmith”. Also, it would be nice if the weather widget was animated, too.
anonymous - Fix you App Please
Make the app easier to use with photos. i had to make a seperate album every single time i wanted a new photo. also i think this might be a bug but the time isn’t syncing with my system time and photos on the medium widget are just coming up fully grey now. Need to fix ASAP
Blocka001 - Beginning of the week Sunday/Monday
Am definitely a fan but on iOS settings I can change my calendar to begin the week on a Monday (not default Sunday) - I cannot see any option to change or at least “match system preference” for my medium clock & calendar widget.
It’s a big setting for a calendar app (IMO)
Exeggutor16🤨 - Sweet & Simple 💖
I don’t know why people are saying that Widgetsmith hacks your phone because all my friends are fine even though they have this app. Love it. Keep up the great work!
KicKs me 0ut - Not letting me in the app
When I click on the app it’s in for a second then kicks me out I’m not sure why it’s happened but hopefully it works soon
Splashshadow - Glitches & Malfunctions
This app turns my photo album widgets to the same photo when I want other ones. And the app closes on me when I’m in the middle of creating a widget and it takes forever to make a new one. This new update glitches and I think it is rushed please fix this Apple.
DeepSpaceOctopi - Simple, pretty and useful
I don’t use it for much, just a small widget that scrolls through some pretty space photos and shows time. But it looks lovely and that’s all matters :)
Unsatisfied Qantas Customer96 - It works but it needs some work
Pretty decent app to do what you need it to do. UI needs a massive overhaul though. Not the easiest to move around. A small glitch - if you were to put a new event into the calendar for the day (today), it won't update. A bit frustrating.
amandamary94 - Colour options for weather widget severely lacking
Don’t waste your money on premium. I enjoy the app overall but I paid for a premium subscription and there are only 3 colour options available for the weather widgets which is extremely disappointing and a waste of my money. These colours include bright green, less bright green and a dark grey. If you want colours other than this DO NOT BOTHER WITH PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION.

It’s a great app but now all of the widgets have turned blank please fix this please 😥
myhai duia - PLEASE READ
I downloaded this app but it will not open I have reloaded it a few times it’s the same every time And will not open
chubb.n - Nice, but it doesn't work sometimes.
When I'll try to upload a picture as a widget, all I'll get is a grey screen and it won't appear on the homescreen.
Kolton119 - NEED HELP😓
It was working for a bit... when I tried adding more pictures to my Lock Screen they keep showing up blank please fix
UncommonMint - Confusing
The app is very hard to understand and the image doesn’t pop up half the time
DownWithTumblr! - Kept crashing when trying to open

dlaira sweet - Bad
Horrible shows a gray screen
nneamaka.i🤍 - It’s showing grey tiles🤷🏾♀️.
The app was working so well then all of a sudden when I go to add new widgets, it shows blank grey tiles. Please fix this😕.
theycallme.trinity - first timer
Got the app after the iOS14 update installed itself and brought its functions to my attention; the app becomes easy to use once you get the basics of it, does what I expected so that’s good. Would be nice if you could rename or hide the name ‘widgetsmith’ under the widgets, medium sized ones tend to have a weird white line on the right size of them, being able to crop photos in-app would also be good. Otherwise, it does what you want which is nice
Hope🔥 - Awesome!
Really helpful with making my new iOS 14 update aesthetically pleasing! Awesome download. Would recommend :)
S.L.J.W. - Practically perfect
I don’t get all the bad reviews? Some said it didn’t work sometimes but I have been working on my iPhone home page for a while and it worked the whole time, I’m sure the devs will slowly make it work and less buggy for other phones (I have iPhone 7) A good update would be being able to upload images to every widget not just a photo one so like a calendar widget with your own photo for the background, over all 4.5 stars. Don’t forget the app because of the bad reviews try it out first! It might not work depending on your phone.
Tittysmash - crashes
app crashes anytime i try to open it. i have ios 14 installed but it’s being so annoying and it’s frustrating
Ping Pong Loser - Glitch
Don’t get me wrong I love this app and I appreciate it it made my Home Screen beautiful! But when it shows up on my home screen on the right side of the widget there’s a white line and it’s triggering my ocd.
Snapadoodlechloe - Fix pls
The app is great overall but the widget & the pictures aren’t even showing anymore it’s all just grey now. Hope y’all fix this soon.
lilhuddy🤴🏿🤴🏿 - could use some improvements
This app definitely has the potential to become perfect. it's relatively easy to figure out, but there's a few issues with it. Sometimes the widgets appear as grey blocks and the only way to make them disappear is to delete and redownload the app. also, i can't seem to add more than one widget that's the same size (i.e two small widgets) to my home screen, only one design shows up. i'm excited to see what future updates will hold! :)
asdF Aly - Amazing!
Less hassle easy to manoeuvre around and customize ur phone.
holdinbutts - Really cool
Really ducking cool
cat girl12354 - Amazing
I love this app my phone looks so good get it right now, I thought it would be hard but it’s so easy to figure out!
Philip130 - What ever
This app is great but the only thing that need to be fixed is the fact that everytime I try to put a photo for example a small widget, then it gets mixed up with the medium one! Pls fix this, other than that this app is great!

!!Stack lover!! - Crashing problem
It literally will not let me on the app. It keeps on crashing before the screen actually shows. Just shows me a white screen for like three seconds and then crashes. I tried deleting and downloading over and over again but it still wont work.

jess_1979 - Pictures
If you have multiple pictures in an album, do they rotate on their own cuz mine doesn’t seem to do so. Other then that this app is great!
dudifgsuhfkf - Meh
The app was working great I made 3 successful widgets and then for some reason I couldn’t make any new ones without the widget just showing up as a grey box..
trillzzzzhm - not working !
each time I download the app and I click it it takes me straight back to the home screen each time I’ve restarted my phone twice now and it’s still not working and I’ve deleted n reinstalled the app and it still isn’t working .
Fatemaaaaaaaaa - It’s being annoying
The app keeps shutting me out
google net - Nice app
Wifi perfectly with iOS 14
thea.dodge✨ - Great app!
This app is great! I really like how you can use different fonts, and how many different options there are. I recommend this app!
nutsofamily - I hate subscriptions!!!!
Just list an app price. There are enough apps out there for weather etc that are free. Why have a stupid subscription and not just an outright purchase. Money grab!!!
bfjebhfbr - add more!
there arent many colours to choose from so i suggest you add a colour spectrum. there should be more fonts too because ya girl cant only use the aesthetic one.
ok hi so i rlly like how the spectrum was added so thats a lot better, but i recently started adding more to my homescreen and i think the new update has a bug or something because now when i try putting up a widget, all i get is a black widget. please fix this because this is the one easy app to use for my widgets and i’d like if it stayed that way:)
hihellohihello123 - please fix this...
So i downloaded this app a few times cause it crashes whenever i open it, it sucks and hopefully you could fix this :)

MC Segura - 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
Napho13 - Wonderful app, could be amazing!
I have given Widgetsmith 4/5 stars for a few reasons. I love the functionality (especially as a paid user) to customize the widgets color, font, and content. After only a couple of weeks, more fonts have been added and I really hope new features and updates continue to roll out quickly.
I do have a few suggestions for improvement: 1) Add more slots for custom colors to tint, background and border
2) Allow a photo to be set at the background for content widgets, rather than just a solid color (also, a color gradient and/or texture option would be awesome, too!)
3) There are a few widgets where a tiny/background color cannot be selected, such as moon phases or activity rings for Apple Watch users - this option would be cool
4) Support for apple news widget/rss feeds would also be a great feature
Overall, I feel the money spent on paid features is worth it and this app has great functionality! I can easily see it being in a league of its own with the addition of some of the features I suggested above! Love this app!!
anonymouse1439 - Good app! Just one small problem...
Absolutely love the app. Allows for so much customization and really can have your Home Screen unique for each and every person. Just one small problem. I noticed recently that some of my widgets have a white line on the far right edge. It’s a small line, but it’s a little frustrating because no matter what I do it doesn’t go away. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, which made me have to redo my entire Home Screen but it still didn’t go away. It doesn’t seem to affect the small widgets though, only medium and large ones. Hopefully this bug gets fixed soon, otherwise this is an amazing app!
CompositionNotebook - 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
ash😛❤️ - grey blocks???
hi! i’ve had this app since ios 14 came out and i really love it. the app makes it really easy to make a bunch of widgets for your home screen once you get the hang of it. the only real issue with the app is the gray boxes. sometimes i’d open my phone to find out that my widgets are all grey. after i finished my widgets i deleted the pictures so i thought that was the issue, but it wasn’t. i took another pictures, set it as a new pic for the grey widget, and it was still grey. HOWEVER, when i shut my phone off completely some widgets will actually turn back to normal??? i don’t wanna have to turn my phone off and on just to have my widgets look normal :/
overall it’s a great app, but that issue is really annoying :/
MommaK79 - I don’t know how I survived until now without widgetsmith
I loaded widgetsmith over the weekend started of course with putting my favorite picture of my kids on my screen, but the. I decided to try using a small widget with my calendar reminders on my Home Screen. This has been a life saver in just a few days. I got in the habit of ignoring the notifications on my phone because there are so many, but now I have a reminder every time I open my phone of what appointments and meetings I have coming up. Especially with virtual learning for my kids, this is so helpful so that I don’t miss my commitments! Thank you Widgetsmith!!!!
Beba_305 - Good app but still needs a few things
I love that you can customize things but, I don’t like that when you click on the widget it takes you back to the app. For example, I use my calendar often and put my reminders in it. When I add my widget, if I click on it, it doesn’t take me to my calendar on my iPhone it takes me back to Widgetsmith to edit or add widgets. Not useful to me, I need to see my reminders for future weeks not just that day. Also, wish they had more fonts. I do love the the photos switch every minute. Thank you for that. And the default colors in the settings should be the same for all, the custom colors wasn’t working either. Didn’t give me the option to pick a custom color.
QueenPanda101 - Grey lines
Firstly I would like to say it’s a great app but recently this week I don’t know if the app is glitching but my boxes aren’t showing my pictures anymore and instead it shows just a grey box with lines I’ve tried to fix it but nothing is changing and it is till a grey box since October the 11th. I don’t know if it’s a problem with the app.... but can you guys please fix this problem:( I really liked it with the pictures. I don’t know if there may have been a bug. And also the pictures like in an album aren’t shuffling either like it used to before . Please let us know if there have been any changes made. Thank you very much.
Ximena1512 - 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
Summer 🌺 - 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 :)
Heeeebz - Massive picture glitch
I haven’t seen anyone talk about this and I’m not sure why I’m the only one experiencing this
First off though, this app concept is amazing! I love the idea of decorating ur screen with pictures of your own.
The only glitch that ruins the whole thing for me is that the pictures on my widgets are always extremely pixelated. For example, I’d have a picture alongside text on it. And the writing is barely recognizable and you can't read it. That’s how pixelated it is. I really wish I can be helpful and show screenshots but I can't on here haha. I hope I’m not the only one because I really want this fixed and continue to support the app!!
HoneyBxo - Definitely needs a tutorial for creating widgets and adding them .
I really want to like this app but, I haven't gotten to explore it. I am having a problem with actually creating the widgets and adding them to my home screens. Id really love to see a tutorial added for new users once the app is downloaded and first opened I feel this would give ease of use to many people who may be in the same boat as myself. I suppose this chalks up to an user error so I am not giving a low rating based on that Its simply because I feel it could be made more user friendly and to have a introductory tutorial or possibly a help section within the app.
I'd love to give it more stars so If I figure this app out and hopefully I do, Then I will be back to reiterate my review.
Mike Stanley - So thankful for this app
I had no idea how much I needed this app until I tried it. I thought widgets would be useful, but I had no idea how inspiring and delightful they could be. The photo widgets, be they single photo or a specific album, allow me to always see my photos that bring me joy. I wondered what the Custom Text widget would be for, then I tried placing an inspirational saying in one, and it hit me. In the crazy world we’re living in today, this app, which I thought would only provide an extra bit of utility in my iPhone, has managed to brighten my day every time I use my phone. Thanks so much.
Spankmymoto - 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.
KaiFamily - Virus?
Perfect app for custom home-screens, with the ability to choose your own photo. However one woman claimed that Widgetsmith causes viruses that make your phone/keyboard lag. She also accused Widgetsmith of stealing data and keeping records of whatever you type. She eventually claimed to have closed her bank accounts, restart her phone, and etc. I've been trying to research whether the occurrence is true or false, and I have yet to find an answer. If the developer could get back to me, that would be great, before I uninstall this app. So far my keyboard has been lagging, and I just recently got this iPhone this September, however I am trying to not blame the app. I will wait for more information, thank you.
AnghamiMusic User - lovely but glitches so much!
I love Widget-smith, the idea is great and it looks lovely but lately mine have been glitching non-stop! All the pictures turn grey with light grey lines in the middle or just black in the place of my original photos. This has been really bugging me because no matter how many times I shut down my phone, the glitch is still there. The only option was to delete Widget-smith, re-download it and start from square one - which I have done once but I’m not prepared to do it every time this glitch occurs. Pleaseeee fix this glitch because I love your app and it makes my Home Screen look so aesthetic but I’m not going to use it if it continues to glitch like this. Thank you!
dhdhhfnvffhdjdbc - Good app little problamo
This was a great app at first I was super excited to have it but then I came on my phone this morning in almost all my widgets were different which was super weird. So then I need to redo them all and also the apps that they say you can customize you have to have this different app which comes with the update but it’s super confusing and none of the videos or anything that I search up explain it and nothing that I searched up about what happened before with the widgets becoming all weird and everything nothing showed up.
I hope that you can fix this problem because that’s a good rap overall but that made me upset thank you.
allainnah - Quality of the app is not what you think.
I downloaded this app yesterday to customize my Home Screen and it was working great. Today I wanted to add some more widgets from this app to my Home Screen and all It did was give a blank black box every time I tried. So I kept refreshing it and I even RE-DOWNLOADED the app once or twice this morning and it’s still not work how it should be. I am very disappointed in this app. I would at least expect the creators to check over there app and make sure it is working properly. I give this app a one star review because the first day that I had it, it was working great!..But the next morning/ today it is not even corroborating with me. I wish I had the option of a zero star review. If you put out an app, at least make sure it will work properly.
No one 🤔 - Black widget glitch
The whole app is great, but my only problem is that my widgets were grey with lines on them so I decided to power off my phone and turn it back on, but that only changed them to be black. I looked up my problem on google and it told me that I didn’t select any content on it, but I’ve tried multiple times to put the same pictures on there. I even redid the widgets but it wasn’t working. I don’t know if it’s an iOS glitch or it’s from the apps, but I hope it gets fixed soon. Like I said though, this is app is great and fun to use. This was just a problem I had.
Britni Uhrich - Could be better...
There’s plenty of customization. But the only reason I’m writing this review is in hopes that it might be a feature they’ll add and that enough people are saying it.....is to open the app of whatever the widget is. When you click on a widget, it opens widgetapp right to the screen to create more widgets. Super annoying. If I click on my calendar widget, I want to open the full calendar. If I click on my steps widget, I want it to open the health app, etc etc, not go right to this app. If your steps widget can sync with my steps in real time, it’s surely capable of opening the app when it’s clicked on. I was really disappointed after purchasing to discover this.
ℓσνєℓу ℓєттєяѕ - Great so far
So the app works fine, I just have a personal gripe:
- Instead of just having a couple colors to pick from, can we have a color wheel type of thing? It would be much easier to create widgets that match what people want for their home screen.
In terms of other problems, like people’s widgets turning out grey or not the one they want to be displayed, I would suggest looking up a tutorial on how to use the app because that seems to be the root of most people’s problems. Also I’m glad that the single photo feature was just added! Hope to see some great things in the future ^_^
JadenMya03 - It’s alright
I love the app and I like being able to put these widgets on my screen, but I keep running into problems. At first, it was great, but I have to make a new album for each photo I choose to make a widget instead of just being able to choose a photo overall. Next, I have a few of widget Smith widgets, but not every one I’m trying to add keeps turning grey. Another problem is that the app updated and now the widgets are showing either a grey thing with lines, a black screen, or the same grey screen I was getting trying to add new ones and this is all on the widgets I already had. I am not sure what to do. It’s just getting a bit frustrating.
Mal.bri.deakins - I like it but future updates??
I like using widget a lot, it helps me with my themes. Recently I wanted to make my theme about my friends so I used quotes of them that make me happy, so I used the large widget so I can read them. When I added the widget it read out the quote but then would cut off with a “...” even though it’s a two sentence quote. If you could do a future update to where font sizes are available or make it where the full quote pops up then that would be handy cause I would like to read the quotes fully rather than this for example “if I ever got the chance to fly, I’d fly t...”
Leigh Marie V. - Doesn’t Really Work Anymore
After I updated my phone to ios14, I was hyped to customized my screen and spent a good 2-3 hours on it. I was experiencing that thing where the widgets weren’t showing and only showed a grey box, checked the frequently asked questions and found out that I should restart my phone, so I did and it did work. My pictures were showing...for a while. It stopped a few days ago and now all my widgets are back to being grey. I’ve restarted my phone numerous times, made sure it was updated to the latest ios update, and even made sure my app was updated. I don’t understand why it doesn’t show my picture anymore and it has been quite frustrating.
CleverGyrl42 - Complicated to use
It’s rather confusing to get started. Seems more complicated than it should. I had to google search so much on this to even use.
I also found out that the clock on one of the widgets, no matter what I did seemed to not be supported to use 😐
I did purchase it thinking that would fix it, but alas it did not. I am uninstalling this app ONLY because if I am paying for a subscription every month the widgets I create should NOT all say Widgetsmith at the bottom like a lame advertisement. That’s like paying monthly for Netflix and still dealing with commercials. That alone is why I am getting rid of this app. Fix that problem or explain how to be rid of that and I might explore this app again
uwjjrdnqdnnkwkt - Good but could be better here’s some ideas to add
I really like how quick this came out since iOS 14 was recently released. But I think more could be added. For example, you should be able to add links to the widget. So once you click on it, it opens an app that you set it to or you can add a link that will open your browser to a specific site you go on frequently. Those would be some additions. Those are just some ideas and I think that the look of the app could use some work. The UI is a bit clunky but again it’s not bad. Once more updates are implemented Ill review it again and update my rating depending how good it gets.
apersontatisusingit - 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
dae ༼ つ ◕◡◕ ༽つ - medium widget
originally i was aware this app was a little glitchy but later on i had no problem with it, this morning i woke up to check the date and it says "oct 6th" but when i came to my home screen i was welcomed with an "oct 4th" and 4PM written on it, no problem right? it glitches time to time, but then an hour later the widget is completely gone, nothing but a grey square, it's now midnight and i've been the utmost paris ed and it's still a gray rectangle figure, so i thought "maybe they're adjusting the time" and decided to spice up my home screen and change the widgets, now i have one rectangle and two gray squares on my home screen, please fix this!!
PFlocka - Very good but not so good
Hi. I just got this app tonight and I was so excited to try it out. I was ready to get started building my very own widgets. WELL... it did work but every time I want to make a small size widget, it always bring me to a date widget even though I made a widget it doesn’t work. BUT... I found a trick. You make one and then try to add it. Then delete it in the app. Then make a new one however you want. Delete it through the app. Then make it again. This worked for me but if it doesn’t work for you PLEASE let me know. Have a good day!
(001(0013VV_R3P14(3D - Has potential!
This app is great and deserves a high rating. Many possibly will download this due to the new iOS14 update. The issue I have is that when I add the widgets, they're default. I've made four types of small ones and I tried one of each. Only one switched to what it was supposed to, but the others didn't. None of them kept the colors I added to them either. If this is only for me, please give me some suggestions on how to fix it. Overall, this app is great and I suggest downloading it if you want to have customized widgets, this is the app for you.
Eri.V - A few issues
It was a little confusing at first but after i watched a tutorial i was fine. There are some bad reviews on here and I think its just because some people don’t get how it works. I love all the options for the widgets and this app is worlds better than the other apps i’ve tried. It looks great and definitely helps make my screen look better.
Edit:Yesterday one of my widgets turned black while my time and date widgets wouldn’t update to the current time and date. This is a new app so i understand that it needs to have more feedback and updates. All the updates have really been improving the app :)
Adri❣️⚽️ - was good until the update
The app was working fine and I loved how my home screen looked. But then I updated it and all my pictures were gone. I tried to delete the widgets and start over, but it just appeared black. I don’t know if it’s the connection I have at my house or it’s the app that’s doing this. But I really think you should fix that before more people update it and possibly complain about that same thing. I still like how we didn’t have to make an album for every photo and we can just choose a photo from our album. But I would appreciate if you fixed that glitch from the app.
Jakelovesaurasomuch - It’s good but I have a problem
The app overall is good and I love how you can decorate it so it will look so beautiful but the thing that I have a problem on is when I put in a picture where you go down to “photos to album” I put it in the picture and I go back to home screen click the plus button and add the widget but on the Home Screen I don’t see the picture it just shows me just grey like I tried putting something aesthetic but it only shows grey with lines can you please help me thank you love the app!
heyheyy13 - It’s really good! however...
I love this app because you can put different pictures and customize it however you want. It is also, so much easier to find your app if you color organize them. The only thing that has me frustrated is that the widgets will starts to turn grey. Right now my widgets have been grey for a little while and I’ve tried everything I could to fix it such as shutting my phone off, and rebooting it as well but somehow whenever I do those things it still stays the same grey and won’t change. I really do hope you try to see if there is any way possible for it to be fixed:)
laddy99 - White line on certain widgets...
I love this app because it does exactly what I need it to while using photos as widgets!
But there is one thing that has been really bothering me and other people I’ve talked to. When you have a black wallpaper and you use a photo with a black background as a medium widget, there is a white line that appears on the right side of the widget. It only happens when you pair black on black (from what I’ve seen) and are using a medium widget. It doesn’t show up on the small or large. It is something that I definitely think should be fixed.
k.marie_me - Premium=premium waste of money
I downloaded this app, excited to customize my phone, and even caved and tried out the paid version. There are so few customization options available, even with the insane amount of money it charges for a subscription, and that combined with all of the glitches and issues that are being reported is why I deleted and ATTEMPTED to cancel my subscription. Literally within less than an hour of first downloading the app, I tried to cancel, and I’m apparently still subscribed. Congratulations on creating garbage that you trick people into paying money for that only turns out to be different versions of the same garbage we could have gotten somewhere else for free with less glitches.
Nataliuh - Turning into a Great App
I downloaded the app when I updated my phone to iOS 14 and there were a good amount of options, but every few days, I’d find it improved a lot. The other day, I was happy to see they added plain photowidgets so that I wouldn’t need a separate app. It had darkened the photo unlike my other app I use for photowidgets so I contacted them and got a quick response saying it was going to be fixed. So far, I’ve seen a lot of improvements being made since initially downloading it.
iaybarra - Nice choices
I added this widget to my home screen because I’m a wife, mother of 4! & a soccer/volleyball mom. Which means I have plenty to keep me busy. However, after adding this widget to my home screen I was not able to add events. It was there just as a reminder of my schedule. When clicking on the widget to add an event it just goes to Widgetsmith like if I wanted to change the size of the calendar widget. If I wanted to add an event I would have to go back to the original calendar in my apps to add events. Kinda frustrating. So in the end I just deleted the app. Looking for a new one.
im_a_fag - This app is so scuffed
Almost every single time I try to add a widget and I select it on the Home Screen, it always refreshes and my photo is gone. This app has never worked properly for me. Constantly my photos disappear and there is literally nothing I can do. And finally, why do I have to create an album just to add a phot, if I have multiple photos in an album it takes me like 5 tries just to get the photo I want. If this app becomes fixed I will rated it higher but for the time being it is broken for me.
Mahii29 - Has a lot of potential
This widget app is great and have noticed lots of updates lately. One thing I recommend to the creator maybe if you can make it that when you tap the widget let the user choose what to open. Ex instead of opening the Widgetsmith app For the calendar i would choose to open google calendar, when clicking on the time widget i would choose to open the clock app etc... i hope this makes sense. This kind of update would be very useful to all users
MGLechner - Has Potential
Widgetsmith is a good starter widget app for iOS 14. This app has the potential to be great! I only wish the developer(s) would give us the option to rename the widgets we create instead of being stuck with the company branding. I’m sure more features/options will be available in the not too distant future. When this happens I will revisit my review and hopefully give it 5 stars. Suggestions: Please provide an option for two different color fonts for the Day/Month/Year widgets. Some glossy colored backgrounds and a color picker would also be awesome!
Budder13 - Love the app but there is a serious problem.
Been using this app ever since i saw it like 2 days ago. i love it, got a fully customized home screen but one problem i keep having is that it will just crash. i will go to open it and it shows the white screen and goes back to the home screen. i have no idea why this is happening but i have to literally redownload the app because of this. this is something that should definitely be looked at. i’m not sure if it’s because i’m on iPhone 8 or what, but i just wanna use this app like everyone else.
AllissaV - Great App!
If you don’t have iOS14 you are out of luck because you need that in order to use this app (if you’re being kicked off that’s why).
Absolutely love the widgets and the way that it has helped make my phone aesthetically pleasing.
If there were any changes to be made I would recommend giving the widgets the functionality of being named on the screen what they are named when they are made. For example: if someone makes the widget clock, names it “Clock”, and adds it to the home screen it should say “Clock” under it rather than Widgetsmith.
Cuz Ur Mad - Widgetsmith Review
In my opinion, widgetsmith is very complicated. But once you get used to the layout you’ll be fine. One thing I did somehow get frustrated with is how you cannot theme your widgets. I want it to be like another widget app where you can make it a halloween or Christmas theme, and be able to change the background to a picture.
Now, though the app often gets compared to other apps, it is not related to any other apps. I wish that it didn’t cost 20 dollars a year to make a weather widget. It’s unreasonable, I can download this app Widget Color, and get perfect weather widgets for free. Thank you for your time.
18jdttdv - Suggestion
Very good app, I love it and it makes my Home Screen look amazing but I just have a suggestion that I think would be really cool, so for my widgets I put pictures of my favorite albums on each of my pages and if possible I think It would be really cool if you could find a way to make it so when I click them it brings me to the album in Apple Music and starts playing it, I just feel like that shortcut would be something a lot of people enjoy and would use often.
RaeLArched - Great app, just one issue:
I love this app. I’m sure I’ve decorated and redecorated my Home Screen 10 thousand times because it’s fun to customize with widgetsmith...
With that said, the clock and calendar on my medium widget keeps freezing. This morning, it still showed yesterday’s date, and showed that it was 4-something in the afternoon when it was 8AM. However, I can fix it by just switching to a different kind of medium widget before switching BACK to the widget I want and that fixes the time freezing up. It’s a small issue, and one that won’t stop me from using it.
Asgardian5676 - It’s a good app but..
I enjoy the app, I really do with the different things we can do on it. But there’s one problem. As of last week my photos of my choice turned gray, and I didn’t know what to do; I researched, changed the photos and even restarted my phone but nothing worked to my avail. And then not even a hour later when I was wanting to change my Home Screen, Widgetsmith didn’t even show up. So I’m just so confused? Like I have no clue if I want to delete it or if I want to keep it because i feel like if this doesn’t fix up soon I may just have to delete the whole thing.
Calendar Glitchinggggg - Calendar
I really love this app and it has been working great. However, the calendar widget doesn’t work. I tried deleting it and adding it again but it says I have no events today when I actually do have events and I wrote those events on my original apple calendar and they transferred to the calendar widget. It’s just that I only see the event when I enter the widget. It’s supposed to show the event already but it doesn't do that and I don’t know how to fix that. Maybe I’m the only one having this glitch? I hope it gets fixed thought.
Jellequinn - Overall Great App!!!
Using this app is fairly simple when you learn all of the features available to you. I haven’t had any problems with using the app or any crashes. The app works fine and you get a variety of widgets and styles to choose from. One suggestion I do have is to hopefully develop a color wheel application where if we wanted to, to change the colors of the clock or calendar widgets. I recommend using this for the ultimate customization on your iPhone!
k_a_t_23 - actually good; read this
ok so i'm seeing a whole lot of people bashing this app bc some things aren't perfect. but...isn't that to be expected? this is a really new app, ios14 came out very recently. so of course there's going to be a couple bugs, a few imperfections, some things that don't work, and since it's so new there's almost definitely going to be an update very soon fixing these bugs. so given the circumstances, this is a really good app that does exactly what it says it does, and does exactly what you're expecting it to. it just takes a couple tries and a little bit of patience. so before you judge this app because of the low rating and the angry people, try it out. if it doesn't work, just delete it and get a different app. it's not the end of the world, they aren't scamming you, and it's gonna be fine. overall, this is a good app that does just what it says it does. i recommend for sure.
