It’s AMAZING but...
Ok so I can start off by saying I don’t normally give apps 4-5 stars, I’m very serious when it comes to reviews but I can say that this app is so good that I’ll give it 4 stars, why not 5 you ask? Well there’s a tiny bug in the app. You see, the percentage of the battery shown on the widget doesn’t match the percentage of my phone. It would always be a few numbers off but that’s not TOO bad. To be honest other than that, it’s probs one of the best apps I got on my phone. Now, if I have the app developers attention I’d like to make a suggestion. Ok so every one of my friends are theming their phones and decorating it. My theme on my phone is neon lights. So it would be so cool if you can have a feature where you can change the style and make the words go neon or even change color!! I think that would be so cool and all my friends would ask how I do it, then BOOM that’s about 10 more users of the app. Obviously it’s just a suggestion and I think if it does make it and you guys end up doing it, I will definitely change my rating but it’s totally ok if you don’t. As I said I don’t normally give apps these types of ratings so 4 stars is very lucky! Ok and to any people who want to get the app for the new iOS, I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND IT TO YOU, enjoy the app and have a great day.
Great app but slight issue.
This app is all around a great app. First time I downloaded it, just a few days ago, I did notice that the battery percentage wouldn’t always reflect the same number as my phones actual battery percentage, it would always be a few numbers off. The recent update to the app, that has improved, but have noticed a few times, the percentage on the widget has been about a number off, from the phones battery percentage, maybe because it just needs a few minutes to update? Maybe that can be permanently fixed in another update¯\_(ツ)_/¯, other than that, the app is great!
Update: i did notice that the widget causes my weather and the color widgets to flicker when I update this specific app, turning off my phone doesn’t help. I have to remove the widget from my Home Screen and add it back to the flickering to stop. I’m sure it’s another bug, but anyone else using this app, doesn’t seem to have that problem, I’ve asked a group I’m in, and it seems like it’s just me. I hope it can be fixed because I doubt it’s my device or firmware update causing the issue as I’ve already factory reset my phone and the issue didn’t go away.
I like the simplicity of it, but like other reviewers experiences...time, dates, and calendar sometimes don’t update. I actually paid for the pro version and I wanted to use the calendar widget provided, but it’s still stuck on last month. I too wish it had more editing options and widgets with different analog clocks, the ability to rename the widgets, change and move around specific text/fonts, ability to change colors of text in widget with personal photo as background, and more. I would also like to be able to scroll through all my widgets created when adding a widget into me Home Screen. I’m not sure if that’s already an option, but in my case I can only see 3 widget options I created. This would take away the extra step of having to press down on the widget (once added), selecting edit and selecting (more like GUESSING because we can’t rename them ie, widget 1,2,3....) the widget I want to add. This app is good and according to reviews in comparison to other widget apps, so far the best available to us with ease of use. This app has the potential to be great and maybe be the best custom widget maker.
Good so far, but it needs some work
I love the concept of this app. It’s simple to use and it adds a nice flair to a widget that lets you match up your background and theme to with the new iPhone update. However, it’s quite restricted. I can’t seem to change the font color if I add a background picture to it; not sure if that’s a glitch as I can select colors for the text but nothing changes, but it looks like from the preset ones that it might be the case of only being able to have white for the text.
I also can’t seem to adjust the position of the text, or change what information is included in the display (I.e. only having the time show and not the date). I know this is also more in line with the script of the app, but I’d love to be able to rename it so that it doesn’t say “Color Widget” beneath it (maybe no app name at all, if only!). While I’m not sure if the last idea is possible, I think I’d really love this app a lot more if it has more flexibility in its customization of the widgets—especially if you’re really picky like I am, haha!
Until then, it is a nice, simple tool to add a little more customization to your Home Screen for the time being.
This is the best widget app in the world. I love how if you want the layout like the one selected, but you do not like the color you can change it. I’ve downloaded probably 3 widget customizer app and all of them you have to pay for everything! Besides this one! There are a few things you can buy, but I think they’re totally worth it! My screens look absolutely STUNNING thanks to this app. When I saw the reviews, I saw they said there was some sort of glitch, and that’s not happened to me! One thing I suggest though is how to add multiple widget and change them. Like how to put widget one or widget two and so on. I had to look it up, but I still figured out how to do it. Thank you soooooo much for making this great app. If you have any questions on what I’d like for you to change, feel free to email me😊✌🏽
Love it but it wont work correctly
I love the idea behind this and would love to use it but I've been having an issue on my phone (iPhone X) where using a photo from my camera roll causes the widget to deteriorate over time and flash white and black and between the correct widget and the same widget from the last time it worked correct and then cause all my other widgets on the widget page to flash and do the same thing. Ive tried with the pre-made widgets and they don't seem to cause this and after removing the widget entirely it also seemed to fix. Its such a minor issue but because of it my phone battery has been dragged through the wringer and performance on my phone has dropped dramatically until the widget can catch up, to the point where i often cant look anything up, cant type correctly since its so far behind, and cant load any app not already in use. This bug has made my phone unusable until the widget can resolve itself which usually only takes about 10 seconds but has increased to anywhere from there to 5 minutes now over time. As much as i love this app it has become unusable and if theres any solution that could be done either on my end or bug fix-wise then I would love to know what can be done.
Good, could use work.

So let me start off with saying this app is great and also has incredible potential for many more widgets that could compete with other apps.
The wide variety of designs, fonts, and colors are very nice and could fit almost any theme on a phone. Sure, you could say it could use some more but for now it is enough for a person who wants to tinker with their design just enough to find out what they like. I know they could possibly add more designs and fonts in the future, but for now it is great for IOS 14 and to be distracted with it.
I would say the only reason this has a 4 star is because it’s not choppy I would say, but kinda delayed. Since it looks very nice, minimalistic, and black and white with my phone theme; it blends in with everything else, and looks like it’s an apple widget. It’s great and everything you know? The only problem is it doesn’t update the battery much, so it’s bugging me. It’s annoying knowing your at 21% while the widget reports it’s at 17%. That’s literally my only complaint, everything else is good for now. Enough fonts and designs.
So yes, I give this a 4 star review. Definitely has the hype around the update to be a mass used application for people, but it also needs small work to be improved and more updates to keep different type of people happy and also more things to interact with. Leaving on a good note, I know many people including me enjoy this app.
I saw all over tik Tok everybody was redoing their iOS 14. And I thought it looked really cool so I wanted to redo my screen. I knew how to change the apps but I didn’t know how to get the headers on top of your home screen. So I went to a tutorial and they said they downloaded color widget. So I downloaded it immediately. And I don’t regret downloading it for one second. I love this app so much and it makes my home screen look AMAZING!!!!You can choose from so many amazing designs I change mine every day to see if there are new designs. I love how you can also create your own widget with your own picture. This app should definitely be downloaded and I would def give it five stars out of five. I love it so much and will never delete it. Thank you download this app now.
Looks great, rarely accurate
By The 30Something Movie Podcast
I usually like to try to go through tech support first before writing a review, but since I’ve looked through the app and can’t find a place to submit a support request — only suggestions or reviews — I guess I’ll just leave a review.
I really like how this app looks with the new iOS 14 update. Unfortunately, the time and battery percentage are rarely ever accurate, which completely defeats the purpose of why I would use this app to begin with. If I had to guess, when I look at the time displayed on this app, it’s probably correct 30% of the time. Most times it’s only off by a few minutes, but that’s a pretty basic function.
I had considered paying to unlock some of the other widgets available because they look great and would be useful, but if something as simple as time and battery aren’t reliable I wouldn’t pay for the privilege of experiencing more uncertainty.
The app works great and all, but what you see is what you get. The battery life, date, and time are the only things you can display. You can customize font, color, and background picture but other than that, that’s all that’s really to the app. It’s very easy to use but I’d love to see other options of display, like weather, moon phases, custom texts, just something that could really make the widget stand out a bit more. If you only want a simple widget then this the app for you, it’s easy to use and easy to have displayed on your phone.
A personal gripe that I do have though is I can’t edit the background picture for the widget. It won’t let me size or edit how the picture will look in the widget. This isn’t usually a problem in the small and large sizes, but in the medium size you are at the mercy of how the picture will center.
