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.

Any chance of more grid sizes? For those of us with larger home screen grids, it is very difficult to get a large widget with out cut off edges. A custom grid size or one that supports manual resizing would make this app perfect.

A few things I would like to see There needs to be more robust options for calendar and event text. Being able to add days of weeks and then the events next to them would be great. E.g Sunday: event 1, event 2 Monday: event 1 Tuesday: (no event) etc. That way it could replace a separate calendar widget.

Hmmmm....Huh....What?!?!....HELP!!!!!! (btw it doesn't look like your vids) I put this here and that there on a grid within this app's setup and then my device provides the data that this app organizes and then reports to my device's output screen? So simple (and free)... who could ask for more? Well... me for one. I can setup a clock and a date/time within this app, BUT the weather and my location? Who can predict the weather better than a weatherman or find my location better than a satellite and my mother (for some weird motherly reason)? The weatherman, a satellite, and my mother can generally communicate their knowledge, I have no way w/o at least some app to communicate with the first two and I don't want to call my mother. This app is not determining my location or the weather. If called my mom she could look up the weather and then spend 2 hours telling me to pay more attention to the instructions.... then she would say, "Call the maker." Hey Maker! How do you make the weather report with my location on my phone I have already spent two hours on this?
