Brilliant, Simple, Perfect I tried Folder Organiser to create Homepge shortcut to a folder and to change its icon - fiddly, using labels, etc. Couldn't get it to work, and I paid for it! This app does the job I want and it's free!! Would pay for this app; should receive more publicity.
One and Only I tried 4 or 5 was to create a homescreen widget to an html file that will open in Naked Browser. Since Chrome doesn't open local files, most other shortcut apps won't work. But this pops up which browser to open in, and once done will open directly! My only reason for not 5 star is need for option to eliminate label. Even if you use no name the black label area shows up.
Thank you very much for this. I had used one app that created shortcuts before, but I couldn't customize them. With this one I can. But -unlike the other app-if I uninstall this one it will be deleted, because it is just a widget :'(
Love it, but a few improvements needed! Love how lightweight it is and how it adds a necessary feature to android. But with the following features it would be THE BOMB!: [I] A small option to open a folder in another file manager app. When I need to delete or rename a file, and this app doesn't allow you to do it. [II] Add the current task to recent tasks. It's slightly unintuitive and doesn't match Android's design philosophy to have to go to go to home screen and click the widget again to open the activity you switched out from to do something else. [III] Add landscape mode for the opened folder. When I'm reading things in landscape mode and want to open another file using this widget, it's slightly troublesome to have to change phone orientation twice.
where's the widget ? I have an Asus Nexus7 and installed this app. Long press the homecreen does not pull up "select widget" or anything like that. I installed this app and can't find it or it's widget or a shortcut to it. Where is it ? ? How do you run it? **** Edit: I found it! and ran it. Works but klunky. Edit: This app works just fine. It's the instructions that need rewriting. I changed my rating up from one star.
Simple. Amazing, a simple app that does what it says it does. That’s rare enough, but it also happened to be exactly what I was looking for.
