Beautiful Widgets 5 gets a complete redesign and full Jelly Bean compatibility

0. phoneArena posted on 04 Dec 2012, 09:09

This new update is fully compatible with both Jelly Bean 4.1 and 4.2, which was the main culprit for the delay. Besides new visuals, we get JB notifications and lock screen widgets, a 4x4 size and new "Daydreams"...

Works well. Forces reconfig of all app settings. Repeat user data is not saved when applying this update!

It's so nice I had to switch to HD widgets until they get it fixed. It did wipe all my themes and setup, but now those themes aren't available anymore, the clock shortcut works once then takes you to the setup screen everytime after, and mostly just stops working or force closes. I'm wondering if they only tested the update on JB devices or others.

In the menu it has a toggle for Configuration. If you read that it says that tapping the minutes on the clock will launch the configuration. Turn that off and it works just fine.

Give it time when initial set up is happening. Menu's are drastically changed.

Had a bluetooth toggle that went away with upgrade, now everytime I try to create one the app freezes. I'm not a high tech guy , but an improvement, not so much so far
