    This used to be a good app in earlier versions of Android. Unfortunately, unlike other similar widget apps there is no way to resize a widget once it is placed on the phone screen so on my last two phones the widget doesn't actually fill the top of the screen but rather sits to the left or right, which looks pretty lousy. The widget also cannot be centered unless you are using a custom launcher that allows it. This app really needs to be updated. Full Review

    Fancy widgets awesome app Love that i can save and back up my favorite clock and weather shins appearance love all the options and custom settings including the animated weather settings this is by far the best weather app i have been using it for years and have carried it over to all my phones that i have had including the s5 s6 and my really old highlight yes that long i will never ever use any other weather app. My phone feels naked without it. the full version is definitely worth buying along with the widget's unlocker 😊👍🖒 Full Review

    I Used to Love This App. Ok I SO LOVE BEING ABLE 2 SEE THE HUMIDITY. U app developers constantly change things up. WHY WHY WHY When U have a great layout people are happy U tinker with it. I SOOO LOVED THE OLD ONE. THE LIGHT DARK Color for day n night was easy to read. The white n grey gotta go. PLUS you clicked on more info where you see humidity. They all OPENED UP NOW YOU HAVE TO CLICK EACH ONE SO DISLIKE THiS LAYOUT THINKING IF INSTALLING IT. Full Review

    Not compatible with Galaxy Note 4 Android Lollipop 5.0x. thought there would be a fix by now. But there isn't. App has worked well for me and was my favorite. HOWEVER, my Galaxy Note 4 just upgraded to Lollipop 5.0 and Fancy widgets isn't so Fancy anymore. Able to place the widget on my home screen just fine, but the time and weather do not update at all. The time displayed does Not work properly. I thought it was a Time Zone setting, however that is not the case as the minutes were much different than the actual time itself. With timezones, although the hour is different, minutes are the same. Full Review

    Great app; needs to be resizable. I've used this app for years across many devices and versions of Android. I love it, but development seems to have dropped off as of late. New bugs appear and aren't fixed with each new Android update. The latest, and the reason I've moved away from it, is that if can't be resized to fit the 5-wide layout on my Nexus 6. Still great on smaller devices, though. Full Review

    Love widget...but..fixed it? Nope Love widget. Love less clutter on home screen. One issue. I've assigned photo gallery to part of widget. When I press that part of widget, my photo gallery opens very briefly empty and then closes. It then says there is nothing to display. There are pics in gallery. Everything else assigned works perfectly. Please help....I might have figured it out...there has to be at least one photo in "camera" album. Nevermind. Doesn't show all albums. Only "camera" album.

    WARNING - ABANDONWARE The skin server and license server are down and the developer is unresponsive. I've switched to Transparent Weather Clock by Droid27. It is functionally equivalent to Fancy Widgets and is actively supported. Do not purchase the unlocker as it will not work without the license server. You will pay $2.60 US for nothing. You can't download skins without the skin server so this feature will not work in the standard or unlocked version. Skip this app and go with Transparent Weather Clock. Full Review

    NO UPDATE? OK, the problems with unlock key disappeared. Now we have a very good app with no update since 2 years. I don't find out any other with so many things & skins 😢. Happyly, all is working fine 👍. To all people who want 5x2 or so widgets, I would like to say that Nova or Next Launchers allow you to RESIZE widgets. Full Review

    Excellent Weather App This app provides a smart looking full page display with tons of customization choices. The only things I would like to see in future updates are the ability to swap weekly for hourly forecasts. My OCD would like a space to align sunrise and sunset times. LOL Full Review

    Used to love it, not not anymore The widgets simply will not refresh, no matter how many times I install/reinstall it. They are ignored by my task killer so I know that isn't the problem. What good is a widget if you have to open it and manually refresh it every single time? I'm a premium user too. Ridiculous. Full Review

    Jamie Hildahl Published date: October 16, 2014

    Good but..... I really like the look and options of the widgets. The reason I am giving it 3 stars is because sometimes it will stop updating. The time and temperature will freeze. I have to reload the widget to get it working again. If this gets fixed, I would give it 5 stars. Galaxy S5 Full Review

    I used to run this app, but now I am on a 5 space wide device, and the design team hasn't updated the available widgets to adapt to new and changing technology. a 5x2 that centers the 4x2 would be awesome. same for other modes i suppose but this is all I use/want. Full Review

    No sounds... I've always loved this weather app because of the wipers and the weather sounds. Installed it on my Samsung Galaxy S5 and I no longer have the sounds. Searched high and low and couldn't find any help with this. If I had the sou DS, I'd give it five stars. Full Review

    Wow! I love that this widget allows you to fully customize and assign any app to its click to launch functions! At first clicking the clock did nothing but I was able to manually assign my clock app as the click action. So many options, including opaqueness and optimizing for data usage. Great job developers!

    At one time Was Positively the best weather clock widget, purchase the full version you will not regret it!!! Geo location was better a few versions back though. It now however is no longer the case hasn't been updated in way too many years now weather alerts do not take you to the actual weather alert, it looks to be abandon Ware. Full Review

    Great when it worked Weather part of app is useless. Choices are down from what they were and it rarely if ever works anymore. Makes the app useless. Widget icons are displayed way too small and text with everything at default overlaps. Full Review

    Great app. Does what you want. With the new Android update, however, it is not doing anything beyond default. Appearance settings are not responsive. Update: come back! Paid good money for this and rightfully so it's a fantastic app. Come back and make it work properly! Full Review

    I'm very disappointed. I've used this for years. I just got a new phone and went to set up my theme I've used for a long time now. I even went into my other phone and looked and saw that all the downloadable themes that use to be there aren't available in the clock market any more. The theme I'm wanting is still on that phone but not available in the market so I can't use it on my new phone. What happened to all the available skins this app use to have? Full Review

    Has the developer abandoned this? I have had this app since my first android over 5 years ago. I have emailed the Dev on numerous occasions and never heard back. I just got a nexus 6 and need 5x1 5x2 widgets. Won't hold my breath for a response. Full Review

    Caused significant lag on my Nexus 5 I love this widget, especially the transparent background setting but it caused significant lag on my Nexus 5, on swiftkey and the phone in general. Deleted the widget and phone is blazing fast now, no lag. Also noticed on the recent version the widget doesnt update when scheduled. Full Review

    Emil Cazamir Published date: July 4, 2014

    Looks good, but... The only difference between the free version and the paid one is a larger amount of available themes. The bad news: the digital clock widget has a bad habit, displaying an unmodified time even for hours. It happened to me on 2 Lenovo phones. Full Review

    Developer Doesn't Respond. I paid for the pro version but for the past few days I have been trying to activate and all I get is a message that unable to connect to server. I have tried contacting and they don't respond. I'm not the only one they ripped off. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY FOR PRO. Full Review

    I purchased the Unlocker when I first installed the app. I had to reinstall the app, and it did recognize that I had purchased the Unlocker. But it would freeze when trying to convert to the paid version. I emailed the developer about the problem, but he never responded. Full Review

    Doesn't refresh properly The widgets look great, and it worked great for a while. But at some point the clock (and other parts of the widget) stopped refreshing properly so it would have the incorrect time. Kind of makes the widget useless. Full Review

    Really bites... Got this hoping to get a different weather provider. AccuWeather is the worst weather provider I've ever experienced. Was supposed to be 62 degrees and sunny today; well, it was 39 and raining/sleet today. Guess I'll continue my search because looking out the window and taking a guess would be more beneficial than having this crap using resources... Full Review

    What once was... What once was a great app has fallen on hard times. Seems to be out of date and could really use a freshening up. While the text size may have been fine in the past but with today's phones displays the text on widgets are very small and hard to read. It looks as if this app needs some love and attention. I am surprised coming from the Dev of Apex Launcher. Full Review

    Love it, but clock is wrong I like this widget. It is nice-looking and very configurable, BUT the time displayed on the clock does not stay with the phone's time. My phone just said 14:28, but Fancy Widgets was still displaying 14:23. That's a 5-minute difference! Why‽ When I tried to get a screenshot, it jumped to the correct time. Full Review

    This was an excellent app when I first installed it a few years back. However, due to its age and the failure to update it to properly interface with current Android tech it is becoming increasingly annoying to use. I loved the options that it has for starting various apps and showing a weather service. These were some of the original reasons for installing it. Disappointed that its becoming outdated.

    Best Looking Clock & Weather Widget! Love the look of this clock and weather widget but lately it has been a 21-23% drain on my battery. If you could change the excessive battery drain I'd love to try it again. I don't even use the weather part yet the battery drain for just the clock is too much. I will truly miss this widget!
