Can't believe I haven't left a review for this app yet. I have been using it for years now, it's one of the first apps I install when I set up a new phone. I absolutely love the look and has all the functionality I need. Nice header with time/date/weather, have a full screen weather 5 day forecast and the vertical switch toggles. Use them 3 on every phone I have bought. Can't recommend this one enough.
Stays "awake" and in Sync w/System Time So far, after trying a plethora of clock/weather widgets, I haven't found one (aside from the Android system clock widget) that properly stays in sync with the system title bar clock. All of the others eventually simply stop updating (yes, I've configured battery optimizations). Then, a post found via Google, put me on to this. It works exactly as it should. Not sure why no one else seems to be able to figure this out, but now I don't care. Well worth the price. (Android 6.0 Blu Vivo XL).
Great widgets, but the weather locator no longer gets the right location for me. Every other app knows exactly where I am, but this one puts me an hour or two away from my real location. Sometimes I can't select my preset locations from the list either, even tho automatic locating is disabled. Aside from that, great for making customized desktops and settings shortcuts widgets. I consider this a must have app with a few minor but tolerable bugs.
Compared to all other widgets like zooper, uccw, xwidget, kwgt, buzz widget etc.. This is a joke. And I paid for this. It's not like it's a free version. 4 font choices and you can't adjust or change anything other than their few presets. I'm just amazed at how basic this is. I don't hate it but I'm not in any way impressed either.
Sadly, recent Android updates have rendered this nearly useless. Still two stars, because I have loved this one for years, and I'm hoping the devs update it. Used to be perfect, but now has quite a delay to open, and lags terribly when in use (gets stuck a lot). Aldo crashes completely, after only about a minute of being open. Doesn't update in the background as smoothly as it used to. Hoping to rate it very high after update.
Ability to blend and harmonize with other settings of the phone, so it can achieve a built in look. Or, go crazy with it! It's all good. And the best weather app I've ever used. Gets my location spot on, from Queens, New York to Chandler, Arizona, and all points in between.
