The Editor of Custom Widget is made out of five main adjustable components which create a body of each widget. It is just up to you which component will be used and what it will look like.

The components are following:

  1. Time - you can change the font, change color and adjust visibility

  4. Battery - you can change the font, change color and adjust visibility but also change the background color
  5. Background - you can change the color of the background, use your own favorite photo or choose image from Unsplash which offers millions of free images

Custom Widget offers a huge amount of unique fonts, a wide range of colors and different levels of visibility to choose from. It is only up to you what you are going to choose so unwind your creativity and become the master of your home screen. Mix and match and have fun. 


Secret Tip! 

Would you like to hide some components on your widget? Not a problem. Simply open the editor and select the component which you don’t want to be displayed on your widget. Tap on ''Color & Visibility'' and move the transparency cursor on the line as much to the right as you can. This will make the chosen component disappear.
