If you have any problems, write me an email!

APP2SD (especially hacks) is a very very bad idea for a widget. It has a reason that Minimalistic Text doesn’t offer this feature! The home screen get’s loaded before the SD card is mounted. Keep this in mind!

Please don’t use the comments for feature requests or bugs. You can write me an email ( (Of course you still can rate lower due to bugs or missing features)

User Reviews:

Best was to display a nice custom UI

I have searching for an app that does just this. I also love that you can open apps by tapping the widget. Ypu can make stylish buttons or functional labels with this. Very nice, keep em coming!

Great app. Version 2.11.2 broke on my phone. Emailed author and it was fixed in about 2 hours. Can’t beat that.

This is one of the greatest and most beautiful apps out there. So customizable.

It keeps getting better!

I live in the UK, however the weather is being displayed in Fahrenheit instead of °C. I’ve looked through the settings but can’t find an option to convert the temperature. In the screenshot it shows °C so obviously it fan be done. If anyone knows can you reply to my comment here so I can change my rating to 5 stars, thanks :)

Great to use with Android Hubs, and take a look at how to completely Customize you device. Just type in Android Hubs on YouTube.. You won’t regret it!

To get Celsius, click on your widget, choose “predefined” layout, under that choose “custom”, then from there you should be able to select custom layout. In there select weather and choose Celsius and there ya go. Hope it helps.

This app is so versatile if one knows what they are doing. Frequent updates and a power-user design make this one worth paying for.
