OMG! You are fast, bro! As a suggestion, aesthetically would be better if bottom toolbar only appears when the app is open (so widgets aspect can only be edited by acessing the app), and make it go away when the drawer is being accessed either by triggers or shortcuts.

Also the transition from opened drawer to closed drawer when tapping and empty space, has some lag.

Would be possible an option to remove padding?


Thanks for this app!

Another suggestion, please allow 4 icon widgets (shortcuts) in a row.

As you can see one icon is taking up 2 columns at the moment, that's wasting space if you ask me.

Nice idea, this will give the app a cleaner look.

As for landscape mode, if it gets supported, please make it optional.

I can either make each widget span a single column or span all of them. So if the division were four, it would be 1/4 width or full width. Intermediates aren't possible.

First of all, thanks for this useful app, it was exactly what I was looking for, tried a few other before this 1 but they didn't quite work how I wanted.

I have a few suggestions I hope you would consider adding as options in the settings.

1. A scroll bar, I have a few scrolling widgets (e.g. flamingo for twitter), so I need to make sure I use the widget header to scroll through your app.

2. A full immersive setting or a way to minimise/toggle your bottom bar.

3. This ones not essential but would be nice to swipe left or right to close your widget drawer.

On a final note, even though it's working great, I really hope you continue to develope this app, and if it helps to motivate development I think you should consider adding a donate option, since the app price is so low.

Many thanks

1. A persistent scrollbar is a good idea.

2. I've been thinking of ways to allow hiding the toolbar. I guess a small trigger button in the bottom right that is pulled or tapped could work.

3. I'm not sure how well this would work. I'm already doing a lot of hacky stuff just to have scrolling work properly (normally, even non-scrollable widgets would block the overall scroll).

I don't have any plans to stop development for the time being. The price is actually more of a "stop and think sort of thing." I don't want people blindly downloading the app and then getting mad at me because they didn't read the description and thought it was something else.

I'm glad you like the app so far!

This app is great and has amazing utility! I bought it right away when I seen this thread. So far everything is working great except I can't resize the Google keep widget. My other widgets resize perfectly but keep will move up or down instead of resizing. Thank you for the awesome app!

It might have a max height set in the widget. I can't force it.

Somehow I can't have the app run at boot complete. I have white listed the app from all battery saving apps and doze. I don't know if it's just me or someone else is also having this issue, but please check. Thanks.

No problems here, using Android 8.0
