Simple interface, stylish design
Fancy Widgets for Android is a very simple and pared down widget pack. Just choose the style you like, input your location and you're good to go.
Fancy Widgets is a decent, no-frills collection of weather widget. There's maybe a half dozen widget styles available and most of them look nice, but I wouldn't say any of them are very fancy. The overall selection is decent, but rather bland. Given the name of this app, I was really looking for something special here; something unique, with some visual pop. Instead, the widgets are just satisfactory, with virtually nothing unique or special going on over the host of other weather widgets available out there.
The interface is clean; just select the widget you want and the user interface automatically launches. From there, you can make some basic tweaks to the look of your widget, but really, not all that much. Just let the GPS detect your current location or type in one of your own and select it from the list.
The widgets function well, with only the occasional stutter. The widget selections are just essentially size choices. Aside from that, they all kinda look the same.
Fancy Widgets is thoroughly underwhelming. It should probably be called ho-hum widgets, cuz I saw nothing fancy about them. The offerings are competent, but utterly forgettable.
