Team review

" Take control of your phone ! "

The application has not yet detailed description, however the team assigned the note of 9 / 10. This note is based on the following criteria: Quality, Usefulness, Ease of Use, Privacy Concerns of user data (depending on the permissions required)..

The app is compatible from version 2.1 of Android. Any supperior OS version will support it.

Its weight is light enough, less than ten MB (3 MB exactly) are needed to save to their device and use it.

Its number of downloads in the Android Market (Google Play) makes it an extremely popular application and rightly so. More than a million users are using it on mobile or on touch pad.

Neutral review Great app but... by anonym
The battery notification icon should be redisigned for Android KitKat, at least removing the black background it has... I use the "none" icon now, but it takes up space so it's not very effective. 3/5
Negative review Nonfunctional music toggles! by anonym
The play, forward, and backward media toggles do not work! I need the music control toggles to work with my custom home screen. I have little circles designated for buttons/toggles which include 3 small circled intended to house individual music control toggles 2/5
Negative review Keeps crashing after Android 4.3 update by anonym
I've never understood why "Toggle airplane mode" isn't a standard feature in Android (i.e. why it's buried deep in menus) when it's used so frequently. Widgetsoid used to work for me but, since the upgrade to 4.3 (Galaxy S3) it crashes every time I click the plane icon. I've tried clearing the application cache and restarting the phone but, as soon as I click the icon again, I get the message "Unfortunately Widgetsoid has stopped". Disappointing. (Edit: I gather the reason for the crashes is that Google has made a draconian security change from 4.2 onwards, and that toggling flight mode is no longer possible without root access. I still feel this app should be updated to handle this change more gracefully.) 2/5
Positive review Perfect toggle widgets by anonym
It's great.. so effective that you forget it's not part of the system by default. The options can look a little overwhelming initially but it's simple once you get the hang of it, besides, you won't need to go through the process often.. (my update crash issues fixed after uninstalling / reinstalling) 5/5
Positive review GPS doesn't toggle with new KitKat 4.4 android. by anonym
Been a long time user, since the app came out, and love it. While it works perfectly in 4.3 android and below, GPS does not however toggle in 4.4 KitKat android. GPS is the only thing I found that doesn't work though. Just so those that are thinking of upgrading their roms to KitKat roms, be aware that GPS doesn't toggle. It does however let you click to settings, but in my own opinion that's pointless to have, I can do that with shortcuts built into the android OS itself, so it's not really an option that should be provided. I have since emailed the devs but to no avail got an answer back, in which I won't hold my breath, so many devs just don't answer back. I do realize they are busy, but if you are one who buys an app, they SHOULD answer back, simple as it to say kiss my bleep-bleep, or to say hey we are aware of it and working on it, no matter WHAT it is, they should answer back, that's just good etiquette and support of your product and good morale.....of coarse if you don't want to support stuff hey, that's your choice too. 5/5
Negative review Fantastic, but does not play nicely with 4.3 by anonym
I have been using for years on different devices and found it excellent. Unfortunately since upgrading to 4.3 a few things don't work eg. Contact dialing, GPS toggle. Looking forward to next update. Please fix GPS toggle. 2/5
Neutral review A.Mode doesn't work by anonym
Nice variety of features and options. The app brings many features and options, from changing the label size to locking the screen by a single click. The design is a bit unprofessional (not too bad though, but needs to be improved), and the UX is a bit complicated... To many clicks to make a change, and after saving, it brings you back to the initial menu, so you have to go again through all the clicks, in order to reach the same point - annoying. Overall, a nice and useful app. 3/5
Positive review Works like a charm... by anonym
I had problems with this on my S3, but those issues have been resolved. Works great now. 4/5
Positive review great app! by anonym
all of the buttons/ indicators i need in one place! a few of the more complex operations are a bit slow/unreliable, but I wouldnt expect any more from a general widget like this. one annoying thing- there's a number on the left of the notifications bar, that i cant get rid of. I chose not to get this, when i installed the app. It may not be so annoying, if i knew what it did...? 4/5
Positive review Love this app by anonym
Been using this app for over 2 years now. Love it! Haven't had any issues since v2 launched. Best toggle app on the market. Thx dev. 5/5
Positive review Long time user, but now sudden problem (Nexus5 - 4.4.4) by anonym
I love Widgetsoid! I like having the convenient configurable switches right where I want them, and the little readouts for battery and storage. Not sure what happened, but two weeks ago the widgets stopped updating themselves. Functionally, no change, but the toggles no longer illuminate when pressed, and the data is now stuck (eg: Battery on widget now always reads at 44%, even when this is clearly false). I've tried deleting and remaking the widgets, but all my widgets now have this problem. Help! 4/5
Positive review Cleaned up my phone by anonym
I can now access all my phone controls from the notification pull down. That emptied one whole home screen which can now be used for other things. Wish they would enhance the battery and weather toggles. 5/5
Positive review Aug 1 update is broken by anonym
Fantastic app. But latest update crashes and is unusable. Please fix or give us the previous version back, can't live without this app. Update: fixed HTC One X 5/5
Positive review Excellent! by anonym
This app is sooo useful and has so many different features and is really customisable. Only 4 stars cause the notification (battery icon) is hard to read for me and there aren't any other good options. Pls add more customisation there. Like colour or style or another option. 4/5
Neutral review Not quite working in 4.4.2 by anonym
Recently I got a Galaxy S5, found out lots of functions such as battery temp, lock screen switch not working any more. 3/5
Neutral review Use to by anonym
Ive always used this app to have music buttons on my homescreen, lately the button/toggles don't work. I get the haptic and visual feedback but no music playing, stopping or skipping. Is this app even still supported. I hope so i paid the donate version as well 3/5
Negative review Galaxy S4 gt-i9505 rooted stock 4.4.2 by anonym
Really loved the widget this widget on my s3 worked perfectly. But since upgrading to my S4 the widgets stop updating. So if I turn off my mobile data it will turn it off but the toggle will still show it's activated. 5 stars when fixed. 2/5
Negative review It was so perfect by anonym
It did just what it was supposed to do.... That was until i went to change an icon and found out there was limitations. Now i have to 1 star this app and uninstall because of it. To think i was actually thinking about donating. Not anymore pal. Its not free if you have to limit people into buying the app come to think of it its not free if you have to make a donate version. If you're just looking to get paid then lose the free version and just put it in the paid section otherwise lose the limitations. I will not change my rating until this is achieved 1/5
Positive review Great app! by anonym
Works very well, and customization is incredible. One bug to note, though: setting custom screen brightness to 3 levels and having the middle one be exactly '60' will result in the toggle behaving erratically. Anything other than 60 works though! Moto X 5/5
Negative review Status not updating... by anonym
Running on Galaxy Note 3 - JB 4.3. After a while, status not updating & not able to toggle i.e. Try to toggle the mobile data, the highlight not updated & not able to switch on the mobile data. 2/5
