SkyWidgets - App Review



Wouldn't it be great to add some useful widgets to your iOS Notification Centre?

This App promises exactly that.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
Having installed the App, you need to access the Notification Centre (from any screen, scroll your finger from the very top of the screen downwards). Pick Today and at the bottom of the page you will see the ability toEdit. Pick this option and you will see 5 new items that you can now include (or not) in the Notification Centre. You will recognise these by the icon for the App.

Address
This detects your current location and gives you the detailed address, with a very neat 'Copy to Clipboard' function which enables you to paste it somewhere useful.

Barometer
You'll need an iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus or iPad Air 2 to see the pressure and relative altitude.

GPS Status
Gives you an indication of the quality of the signal.

Movement Information
This gives you your altitude, speed, heading, latitude, and longitude. Again there is the facility to copy this information directly to the clipboard.

Stopwatch
This is displayed to one tenth of a second. Simply Hit Start to beginning timing and Stop when you are finished.

Go to the App itself to set units to imperial or metric.

Cost
There is a nominal $1 charge for the App.

Indispensability
This is a useful addition to the notification centre.

Dependability
The Address widget pastes the location as one continuous line of text in what could be described as reverse order (country first, street address last).

Security
This is a standalone App.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Useful and inexpensive.
