Long time user. Activation Server has been restored if you are using the unlocker app that goes with this . Previously it has not been able to connect to the authentication server but it seems this issue has been corrected . Still my go to weather app / Widget

Kristie Leigh

My favorite clock widget Unfortunately, they don't get many new themes... had the same choices for years. But, don't get me wrong, there are lots of choices.

Danielle Lonnon

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.

Marie Ng

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.

Jon Finlay

Love it No problems, and I like the small file size. You shouldn't complain about the developer not responding to emails because it's possible he's died or having family problems.

Adrian M

...not broken?? Tried all day yesterday & the day before to unlock pro version...without success. Emailed developer, no reply...Not surprised.

Art Leach

Not as advertised Looks great - but a clock widget without a clock is ridiculous; a battery widget that doesn't show up is useless; and where is the date I took the time to select? As I said, it looks great; it's just not all that it's advertised to be.

Denise Willis

Cannot find locations using weather bug Not using this app until this is fixed. Every location I put in for Weather Bug Fancy Widget says cannot be found. I am only using weather bug so not using this app til fixed.

Ann Leong

Weather indications still not accurate As above, purchased version is dependant on free version. Weather locations still not accurate after Apr 2014 updates. Buyers beware - I am using note 3 now

Dave Wiard

Abandoned? Has worked well for a long while but it hasn't been updated in over a year so it's probably been abandoned by the developer.

eric bana

Nice If u lower price of pro even one dollar and six cents exactlty,then it wulda been 5star and I'd go pro..usin nova launcher atm not happy withit,nextauncher is a joke in 3d and in price fullstop,fragged icons don't make good launcher,widgets combined with simplicity seems to work best in battery saving and specially on HTC were sense widgets are compatible default..but if lower price,I do like the add-on packs for this launcher,and as u may see,I have plenty of paid apps,intact free apps to me,are scams.

Veda Farmer

Widget doesn't open on desktop screen... Bomber that this widget is condensed to a small size won't open to it's full size. Will the developer Please fix this issue??

A Google User

Fancy widgets Love this app! They need the leaves on here when its windy! Why can't I get the moon phases to open. Lately the temp has frozen and won't update. What the heck? Sent an email but got no reply bumming out here!

Frances Huang

Date tap don't work I want to set it shows calendar when tapping the date and it does not work... But when set at everything else it works.... Please fix.. Thank u

Jimi Mack

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.

Troy Newbanks

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.

Jamie Hildahl

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

Legumo Peto

Outstanding simply the best. looks amazing and works great. I hate widgets and never use them, but this one has been my only widget since january. perfect. (love the 4x1). 5 stars!

A Google User

Weather data never updates. This was once my preferred clock/weather widget - and I wish I could still use it. While many of the skins are older and look dated, there are a few that I really like for showing the time and weather. Unfortunately, the current conditions and forecast updates have both been broken for a while now (I use "WeatherBug" as my selection in the "weather provider" field on the location settings screen - it's my preferred weather source). There is no error message or other indication of a problem - it's just that the data never updates. This only becomes obvious once you notice the forecast dates begin a day or two ago, or that the temperature and conditions remain the same 24/7 regardless of sun, cloud, rain, warming during the day, etc. After trying other apps while waiting for this one to be fixed - I now need to accept that it's time to give up and move on. This wouldn't bother me as much if I were using the free version; but I had paid to unlock the extra options. Back when it worked, I was happy to have paid to support the developer. But now with it broken, and no updates to fix the issue, it appears that I'm just out of luck now.

Eric Binkley

Works Must of the time. . This app never has good skins and the one you like were made like years ago.. This app stops time if you like that... hey it's 1:11 all day today ok? Seriously though it's god [email protected] annoying, fix your app so it doesn't randomly stop telling time on its widget. F'in annoying when you're trying to get stuff done and you look what time it is and it's stuck. No way to fix it unless restarting phone. Wait I have another way to fix it... uninstall/new app time! Tired of this happening when I bought full version

A Google User

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.

Robert Allen

Excellent Weather & Clock App!! Excellent & accurate weather & clock app with "tons" of options. NOTE: I have the LG G2......(4) great weather providers. Amazing choices for widget "tap" options. Very cool, beautiful, & yes...."Fancy" animation features for the main & home screens!! This app does it all and quite well. NOTE: Be sure to explore all of the options in the "Configure" section......there are so many to choose from!!

Byron Johnston

From a 5 to a 0 Used to be excellent, but now, it looks like this app has been abandoned by the developer. The only way to get the weather to update is to have your location tracking on (and run down your battery faster). Too bad, it was really a great app before.

Jerry Davis

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.

Joyce Coggin

Wrong Time!!! I have wrote this developer 2 times. No reply! This clock is now off by 2 hours since time change. Nice clocks. They ran off and left it! Was a very good app. before and pretty clocks!

Wendy Zosh-McLean

Is this even working? ! I have used for years and all of a sudden it has turned to Crap worth the last update. Please fix so I can install once again.

Gregory Russon

Still the best... I've tried them all... But always come back to FW...yet it seems the dev may have moved on...g

Sophia Email

Doesn't refresh on Samsung S5 I can't get the refresh settings to work. Doesn't refresh based on settings I select and now it is stuck on yesterday's weather

JK Wilcox

Happy User!!! but please fix one Bug. I bought it since day 1! Love everything about this app, I've used it on every android I've had so far. Now I use it in Nexus 5 and No problems for me (the ones people report here), this app works flawlessly for me. I love the fact that I can set different screen taps to open different apps!!! The only thing I wish is transparency option for "Clock Tabs". One BUG: Alarm doesn't launch any more when tapping hour/min tab (set in advance option) since KitKat 4.4.2 or 4.4.3 Please fix! Otherwise great app besides sometimes Weather Alarm don't notice you about weather changes. NOTE: Be sure to explore all of the options in the "Configure" section......there are so many to choose from!!

Lydia P.

Needs and update I love the variety of skins (if u purchase the unlock) but the weather icons for the skins other than the default are sooooo tiny...please fix.


this widget sucks! I have no way to put am/pm icon to right side of the clock in new versions. I told the developer few times. I hated how the widget looked.

T Lueck

Can access all the preferences, but widget appearance & performance doesn't comply w/selected preferences:( Thought this was going to be a really neat app to use, but in the end it was a HUGE dissappointment:( I was having fun picking out all my skins & all the unique actions I wanted the widget to perform, but when I finally had everything set & got all excited to see what my preferences were going to look like... nothing! Just a 2x2 grey box w/white characters boringly staring back at me:( A whole lott'a hype about absolutely nothin'!

Bart Bonamie

Menu gone Nice app that I've been using for years. Recently I got Android 5 and a new LG G3, and now I can't find the menu settings because the button just doesn't show up anymore.

Amanda Thiem

AccuWeather sucks I used to have options for Google or AccuWeather and AccuWeather sucks for summer (it's almost 100 now but it says 78 and feels like 89) so I use Google in the summer. Fix!

Sabina Gergova

Bug: hour tab action setting Steps to reproduce: set advanced settings => clock hour tab action -> launch alarm clock. When tab hour tab, Then nothing happened. If setting is changed to other launch option works properly.

David Neal

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...

Amanda McBride

Fancy Widgets If Ur a girl like me I think there functional just the way they are, unlike some guys I know they want the whole shebang LOL ;) !!

peyman hafezi

How does it work? I've installed fancy widgets and it only added an app icon on my home screen. No widget is added to my widget list. When I run the app it shows settings. How does this work?

Amy C

Awesome Easy to use and no annoying ads like the other weather apps. Wish they could have more themes available.

chuck harold

Love it!! Best widget I've seen. Can be configured to open any app you want on tap of the minutes, hours, dates, forecasts, and other elements (and that's an app per element). Change your alarm clock app? Just reconfigure the widget to point to the new one. Very powerful and customizable.

M. Isa Anshori

Compatibility will you support this app for Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 Grid size 5x2 I'll give u 5 star if done

Igor T.

Asking for money twice Bought app. Liked it used it. Got new phone and not able to load it. Asking to buy again. Asked developer and they said to buy it again and contact them. Sux. Deleting..,...

William Broome

Does not support 5X2 widgets to fit the new era phone screens! I paid for this app years ago when I had the first Samsung Galaxy but they've had the same boring skins and themes ever since. The appearance settings take quite awhile to figure out how to adjust to get the graphic just the way you want it. They seem to just fix bugs along the way as the new OS are improved but not updating their content at all. Now that you can have a 5x5 workspace on the G6 the 4x2 widgets don't fit the screen leaving a full block to either side. Pretty much an old retired app now. :(

A Google User

Looks like dev has abandoned it No updates in many years, no material desing overhaul, or new features. Maybe dev should open source and make it free.

A Google User

update...... No updates for almost 2yrs.....great. ...notifications don't work & it doesn't look like it will be fixed. ...I bought the pro version & it is wrong for you to do no fixes.....this sucks

Melissa Wozniak

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.

Atiqur Subhan

Long time user Got this and pro version with my first android phone 6years ago! But now no reply from devs. Constant bugs and no updates for ages. Gonna have to install beautiful widgets I think and say bye bye to my money

Sandra D. Schlosser

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.

Grace Winks

Bugs I love this widget & haven't had any major problems with it but it needs some tuning. Quite often when I unlock my phone the clock/weather widget is a few minutes behind the actual time & will be stuck for a bit until it randomly decides to right itself.

Carl French

Not working properly Hi, my favorite clock widget for years but the extra information has disappeared from the widget, no week no., next alarm etc, could we have it back please

Ignacio Parga

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.

Dustin Moretz

Used 2 love it but since Nexus 6, cannot resize fully or link alarm clock to FW ance of update or something equal.... Also couldn't resize horizonal to cover the screen fully. All seems to be working great other then those 2.

Igal Schneider

Very nice and useful, but Very nice and useful, I use this widget for couple of years. The weather forecast, however, lots of time displays no icons. Hope this will be fixed

Skyy Feather

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 ???

Johannes Stauffer

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.

Norman Graham

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

Nancy Marine

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.

Dan Souza

Widget looks nice, but... That's where the good part ends. Neither the weather nor the location are remotely close to accurate anymore. Actual weather is 36 and cloudy this says 54 and sunny. Used to work well. Even on a manual refresh it doesn't work. Tried resetting the app. Still doesn't work.

Crystal Walter

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!

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.

Lewis Rodgers

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!

Kerim Emre

Bit annoyed... Purchased this expecting to be able to use the skinning functions, but whenever I select any skin, weather or time, the clock stops updating; i.e. if I create the widget at 12:23am, and look at my phone in 5mins it will still read 12:23am when actual system time is 12:28am. Running Galaxy S4 with 4.4.2 KK.

Stephanie Pierce

Was my all-time favorite app This has been my go to all for every phone for my last 5 phone and now the time will not update and I'm going to have to go look for another app. Very disappointed!


Best Clock and Weather Widget To Date I've used this widget since I got my first smartphone, which was around 4 years ago, and over the years, whenever I change my phone, this is always the first widget I ever install. It's excellent, period. The developers did a very good job on it, no complains. Hopefully it'll still be here in the future, as all the newer widgets aren't as power efficient and trustworthy as this one. Good work Fancy Widget Dev Team!

Alejandro Ramirez

Widget update bugs This clock is great but the widget temperature does not update unless you swith between weather service providers to actually update. Clicking the refress does nothing even if it does refresh. Please fix and will update score

A Google User

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.

Emil Cazamir

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.

Patrick Stanley

Weather Not Updating The last two updates have thrown off the weather accuracy. The app won't refresh correctly. Weather is incorrect, and doesn't change. I have a Sony Xperia TL smartphone on the AT&T network. Please fix issues

Michael Burr

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.

Joe Gallo

Best weather app EVER! I usually don't concern myself with what the weather predictions are, they are hardly ever right any way... But this one is great and looks freaking awesome with all the different options to choose from.

Greg Conquest

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.

David Remer

Unsupported When using a custom skin from the skin fancy widgets market all forecast widgets display super small. The developer told me to solve this problem, don't use a skin... Awful support.

Kathy Smith

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!

Gracyn Howell

Used this paid app for years and loved it. I bought a new phone and my license key won't work. I contacted support and received a new key. It didn't work either. 4 license keys later and I still don't have the paid version that works. I am sick of sending my info to them for nothing and will not do it again. I refuse to pay them again. So for this reason I can only give one star.

Benjamin Bryan

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.
