Really one of the best widgets on the entire Play Store It lets you create any sized/shaped widget and fully customize everything about it. You can have one full of apps, another full of games, another full of bookmarks, contacts, shortcuts, you can do anything you want, it's extremely rare for widgets to let you customize them in general but this one is as good as it gets. Ironically it's also very easy to use even considering it's indefinite amount of personalization. Upgrading to the Pro version gives the option of how much you pay, they deserve at least $3.

Nexus 5 Great widget, would love to see a horizontal scrolling widget to compliment this one.

Okay It's a pretty good app. Altho I got it mainly to have quick easy acess to my favorite contacts that I could scroll through, this does that but does not give an option to text. It automatically calls the contact when you click on them. That was disappointing. If there was a text option it would be a 5 star + app.
