Text widget (donate)


▌BASIC INFO:
Very simple minimalistic widget, which displays any text on your Android home screen. It allows multiple instances of the widget and has wide possibilities of settings. This version also includes Tasker / Locale plug-in, which becomes even more powerful tool than ever.

▌TASKER/LOCALE PLUG-IN:
In case you use Tasker/Locale application, I have included plug-in which displays "dynamic" text on your homescreen. Tasker application allows variable replacement, so that it becomes very powerful tool for you if you are familiar with this application.

▌USAGE:
1. in the TEXT WIDGET set up unique name in advance settings (name, which will be used for communication between widget and Tasker/Locale application)
2. in the Tasker/Locale application create task and include this plug-in. To set up the plug-in, set the same name as used in widget and add any content to be displayed on the Android homescreen.

▌FEEDBACK:
Should you have any questions related to this widget or integration with Tasker/Locale application, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected] Please, use rating for positive/negative feed-back about this application. Not for bugs - I will rather appreciate to receive them via email so that I can try to fix them.

Basic and unintuitive I was expecting lots of fonts and backgrounds but customisation is very limited. The interface doesn't show you how your text will look so you have to keep going back to your home screen to check.

Needs update Does not work on newer high resolution phones, everything is to small and misproportioned. It wouldn't look all that great even if sized correctly.

Bad user experience. Why cant we see the preview text while we're editting the text? Why cant we have 2 widget with different text?

Excellent UI This does not cause system hangs which I am so greatful for. I would like to let you know that by modifying the data XML you can change the use counter to a negative integer ex.: -55378008 and have nearly limitless uses I would recommended fixing this ASAP.
