[Widget] Flick Widgets
Flick Widgets brings you the power of Android at the flick of your wrist! Watch the youtube video for a demonstration of how it works.
Simply flick your device left, right, front, or back to reveal a useful widget. Don’t stop what you are doing to dig into the phone settings or other apps. Just flick and the widget slides out with minimal disruption.
The volumes widget allows you to easily change your different volume streams.
The people widget is new in version 1.1! Flick to show your contacts with four different ways to interact with those contacts:
– Direct Dial
– Direct Message
– Show Contact Badge
– Show Full Contact Details
Speed dial from your phone has never been so easy!
If you are using direct dial in the people widget, mark the default phone number directly in the contacts app – otherwise, the app will default to the mobile number if it is available.
If you were using the people widget before this version, contacts will no longer show up by default. Not all phones use the Android starred contacts, which caused some issues on those devices. Select the contact group in the preferences to determine which contacts to show. You can select different groups for different flick directions if you like!
COMING SOON on Flick Widgets:
– Toggle widget for WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, etc.
– Bookmarks widget
– App shortcuts widget
– Answer phone with a flick
– Some other special experimental features…

Flick Widgets user reviews:
Love Flick Widgets app because I can control detailed volume switches without having to fumble through menus. So simple to use – can’t wait for more widgets.
This is an awesome app. Looking for future releases that adds more functions at flick of the wrist.
Awesome! Can’t wait for the update
Flick Widgets is great app, saves time opening the basic widgets. Highly recommend it!
Love the idea for this. I understand you just released this. If anything your app needs more widget options at this point. The ones listed currently work well. The ones you plan on also look good. Also, if there is a way you could remove the notification icon, that is nice, but I think that would make keeping the app open a challenge. Get ready for the wave of downloads from lifehacker. EDIT: just found the remove icon in settings. Nice move on that.
