Review from A Google User
Omg Well i spent over 12 hours experimenting with designs and finally i made something i like. After couple of hours it just restarts by itself on desktop leaving blank white square. 5 stars when u fix. Htc Sensation ICS Support for bigger images would be nice, 299x533 is not enough for today screens :)
Someone help and I will change rating!!! So, I chose a design from buzz launcher, then downloaded this app in order to get the weather widget that was recommended. When I downloaded it, the temperature always says 28°.....(its really 97°). I cannot figure out his to set the location for the widget, or change anything! I understand this app is used to create your own apps, however I can't figure out how to even get started. If someone could help that would be great!! Right now the weather widget has been deleted, and I can't get it back!
Backups do not work at all I've created a custom widget and made sure to back up the file before factory resetting my phone. However i did not receive a uzip file but rather my project was received as a .uccw file. Now i do not know how to restore my custom widget but instead i must spend more hours recreating my detailed widget. The application is excellent in terms of widget creation but i wish there was a better way to import existing widgets of different file types.
Awesome Features... Huge Battery Drain I love this app and all the features it offers. However, every one of my battery saving apps reports that UCCW places a huge strain on the CPU and causes substantial battery drain. And it's true. I notice my battery drains significantly faster than normal when I disable this app. Please work on battery optimization and you will earn my 5 stars :)
The level of customization freedom you have on this app is unmatched by any other. I turned myself into a widget! How? Find a picture you like, edit it to fit your purposes, load it into this app, add other pictures, shapes, text, or other things in different layers if you want. You can also add an app trigger on any section of your widget. Got a picture of yourself holding an object in each hand? Put it in this app and add a hotspot to the objects! Soccer ball triggers Netflix while bag of groceries triggers play store (or whatever you want).
This is my second review for this app... ...and it's still 5 stars - I'd give it 10 stars if I could. This is one of those few apps I've been able to witness evolve through its lifecycle. It has had some glitches along the way, but all software does. The difference is in how responsive the dev is. The UCCW devs are outstanding. They should be proud of their work. Coupled with a launcher like Next 3D, my interface is hyper functional, alien, and undeniably fantastic compared to a normal droid user. Thanks guys, keep up the good work!
Crashed, crashed, crashed, crashed Had to rebuild all widgets after a previous update. No backward compatibility was an odd and annoying move. For about a month or so it has "stopped working " 20 times a day. Which means it doesn't even tell correct time. Change name to Ultimate Customisable Widget. Forget the bit about the clock. It's not a clock anymore.
1. Bug fixes
1. UI improvements and bug fixes
2. Easier to provide widget dimensions when creating new skin
3. Text Map feature easy to use. Now its easy to use your text map files with apk skins.
4. Auto-saved version of the skin is loaded in editor by default. Last saved skin can be opened from the menu.
