"Fill your homescreen with widgets"

Reviewed by / Aug 31, 2011

Choose the ones you want to use and customize them

Elixir 2 - Widgets is an Android application for creating widgets on your home screen. What you need to do is to long press on the homescreen, choose widgets and then the Elixir size you want to use. A new window will open and you'll have to set the Name, Background transparency and other important settings. After that, you can click on the image and select the type of widget you want to install (Battery, CPU usage, Memory, Time, Wi-Fi and many more).
After the first one, you can go on and create many more widgets for your homescreen and customize them all to your taste.

Elixir 2 - Widgets was developed by Tamás Barta, creator of other useful applications for your Android device. If you want to install widgets in a quick and easy way this is your application, although the design could really be improved in order to be more aesthetic.

    Wants super user access without explaining why! Not about to give anyone that kind of access without a valid reason for it.

    If there were three apps that should added to every Android release as core functionality, they'd be Phone Silencer, Elixir 2 and Elixir 2 Widgets. Get 'em!
