About this app

Note: please be aware that Pixel Shortcuts will not make a non-Pie, non-Pixel device able to run the Digital Wellbeing app. To see Digital Wellbeing style app and notification usage visualizations on your current phone, check out our app ActionDash: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.actiondash.playstore

Pixel Shortcuts is a helper utility that makes it easier to load apps already on your device that for whatever reason don't appear in your launcher. Digital Wellbeing is one such app, but there are others, especially system launchers such as Pixel Launcher, Android Launcher and Samsung Experience Home.

By default these apps do not appear in the app drawer of a launcher, and can only be accessed by digging into the device's system settings. Pixel Shortcuts fixes this problem by both making these apps appear in a launcher's app drawer, and providing widgets that can be dragged to a home screen to directly load the apps.

Pixel Shortcuts offers is a way to more easily load otherwise obscured apps already on your device - nothing more, nothing less. Please see here for a detailed Pixel Shortcuts FAQ: https://blog.actionlauncher.com/pixel-shortcuts-faq-1005265ef5fb

Pixel Shortcuts is provided completely free of charge. If you find utility in the app, please consider checking out our main apps ActionDash and Action Launcher 😃

Does exactly what the description says it does. Unfortunately for Note 9 users such as myself, Digital Wellbeing is not installed by default. Even if you sideload the APK, the app really doesn't do half of what you want it to unless your phone is rooted. I'm no longer the power user I once was, so unless Samsung deems my phone worthy of Digital Wellbeing in a future update (they won't), DW is pretty damn useless.

Google Pixel 4a 5G + Android 11. Opted for shortcuts in app drawer and on home screen by drag-and-drop (for Pixel Launcher and Digital Wellbeing Dashboard shortcuts - the Digital Wellbeing shortcut already existed as the app is already installed in Pixel 4a). Shortcuts are dead and do nothing when tapped on. Alternatively tried to use widgets but none stick to screen. They disappear from home screen once finger is released. Uninstalling.

Pretty much does exactly what it says it does. Feature request: a shortcut for the pixel buds app that's hidden in the Bluetooth settings on pixel devices.
