Review WidgetHome Launcher

Tariq Abdulla
8.3Excellent
Various features, intuitive interface, completely free
Music widget was a bit buggy
WidgetHome Launcher for Android is an innovative free launcher that puts widgets centre-stage. In comparison to say, widget creation apps, this one is really fast to set up, but with limited customization options. If you want a new look for your phone, but without fiddling around too much, this could be the app for you.
WidgetHome Launcher divides your phone into two boxes. You can also choose from a variety of other layouts, and even create your own. The interface is really simple, just tap-hold on the widget to edit it. Swipe up and down to change the widget, and left-right to change through the preset styles. You can set it to have your wallpaper showing through. There's a hidden sidebar to the left to change settings and quickly access recent apps. The only "ads" are in this sidebar, and are just links to additional style packs for the app that can be purchased.
You can add up to 5 screens if you like, so there's plenty of room for all your shortcuts and widgets. Tapping each widget will launch an app, and you can change which app launches in the settings. There are widgets for calendar, battery status, time, grids with app shortcuts, system monitor, and music player. The music player was a bit buggy for me at the time of writing, once I started it playing I couldn't stop it, and it didn't show any song details. There's no weather widget, but you can add any widget that you have into a grid space. There's space for 4 quick-launch shortcuts on the dock bar along the bottom; one of which is an app tray (shortcuts to all your apps).
Overall, WidgetHome Launcher scores points for being so easy to use and customise. The appearance is perhaps a little chunky compared to some slicker designs; but it's great if you like keeping things simple.It strikes a good balance between letting you have links to your apps - which don't take too much space, and plenty of widget availability, with big text sizes.
