Fabulous. Can do almost anything and very customizable. Going to donate version now.

Great customizing widget app that makes your screen very organized and slick. Takes a bit tweaking to get used to but help of the youtube tutorials, I was in no time creating widgets on my Motorola Photon.

At first I didn't see what's so great with this "just another widget". Then I found out that it has various sizes. Then I found out that it can do things upon tapping. Finally, I found out that it's very beautiful in a minimalist way. Now, I'm in love with this widget factory.

Latest updates killed it! I use this app on all my devices and for some reason it no longer works on my Samsung Mega 6.3. All I see is loading swirls where my widgets were located at. Uninstalled and now freezes my phone when trying to add a widget on screen. Phone goes black screen and about ten minutes later I get error that application not responding wait or close..... WTF!!!

Working just fine on my phone. You can make some great looking clocks for your home screen with this app. Lots of options and very configurable. Doesn't eat up my battery either. If you're having problems then email the dev instead of putting it in the review section.
