Needs better persistence When the widget has to redraw items that aren't shown on the screen it just feels clunky and poorly done. I really like what this app is doing, but I think there should be an option to keep the widget in memory.

Nice customization app Can literally change each icon & create almost a totally different looking icon!

Iconpack application is great Easy to set up! Was doing this by hand in Zooper, which is time consuming. Like that you can change icons individually. If your bookmarks are coming in blank, make sure you are signed into Chrome Vanilla (not the Beta) and your bookmarks are refreshed. Would be great if we could add macros (launch multiple apps, so I can launch Netflix and imdb) and manually enter urls.

Very nice, could be improved. The widget works as expected. There are no crashes or fishy permissions in my experience. It is very customizable and easy to use. One thing I didn't like is the tap the white corner square to edit. It really seems pointless and counter intuitive. I think the widget should follow the example set by Zooper widget, in which you open the main app and configure from there. Luckily you can hide corner square if you want, so it's more of a slight annoyance than a bug.
