HASH(0x87c37894) out of 5 stars Great App for Clock and Weather 3 Nov. 2011
By D. Kerr - Published on Amazon.com

This app has been updated and improved over the original Fancy Widget. I found the transfer from Fancy Widget Pro to the new version to be easy and uneventful. Sure, it took a few minutes to reset everything back to the way I had it, but it was well worth the time.

The new version of Fancy Widgets let you back up your settings to your SD card. That is nice if you need to hard reset your phone. Also, there are additional changes to animations, refresh settings, and numerous advanced settings. I like the many ways you can customize this app to your needs and your appearance desires.

I have used the competing Beautiful Widgets ad I find this to be very competitive in use and looks. You should give this a try and see if you like it enough to move up to the paid version.

HASH(0x88ff9a5c) out of 5 stars I love this widget! 6 Oct. 2011
By Joshua Ash - Published on Amazon.com

I got the old version (fancy widget pro) when it was free on amazon. I found out about this one and got it. The process to get a key for the full version was very simple and easy. The widget it self is customizable from the skins that are avaliable by other developers. Alot of the widgets (more precisely the 4x2 widget mimics the HTC clock widget quite well. What I would really like to see in this app is the ability to put these widgets on the lock screen, I've seen some Apps (like ICE by Appventive) have a widget on the lock screen, so it can't be impossible to get it on the lock screen. Listening developers?
HASH(0x87ebff30) out of 5 stars Still my favorite home screen widget after 4 years 9 Jun. 2014
By J M - Published on Amazon.com
I am quite surprised by the # of negative reviews for this application. I know some of it is due to compatibility is seems like. I have used it starting with an HTC Droid Incredible about 4 years ago. I moved to a Motorola Razr MAXX 2 years ago. I'm now using it on a Samsung Galaxy S5 and I have not had a single issue with it on any of my phones.

What I always look for in a home screen app is a widget that is 4 x 1, will display the weather, the date and the time.

I also want it to be customizable. When I touch specific parts of the widget, I want it to launch applications that I choose. I want the hour to launch to the alarm clock app. I want the temperature to launch to launch the weather app.

I want to be able to change the look & feel of the widget. Let me choose the background & transparency. Let me choose the color, size and transparency of the font. Let me choose the size of the widget (4 x 2, 4 x 1, etc).

Fancy Widgets has all of that. I have tried quite a few other apps/widgets and nothing has taken me away from this app for more than a week. Some applications have a good look & feel but won't let me customize what applications launch when I click on a specific part of the widget. Some applications let me customize what apps it launches, but the look & feel is terrible. Some don't do either!

If this sounds like something you are looking for, then this is definitely worth a try. I do have the "pro" version or whatever it is called that unlocks all the features so if you are seeing something different than what I explained, that might be why. If you happen to know of a different application that does all of this, feel free to leave a comment and let me know, I'd be happy to check it out too.

awesome , runs great on Samsung Epic 4g. even this free version has lots of skins to download. The only way to improve it would be with animated weather effects.

Got it as the "Daily Free App" on Amazon App Store, but its the free version anyway, that doesn't let you use half the widgets...
