WidgetSoid is a simple app that allows you to control your phone better by providing personalized and self-created widgets.
Widgetsoid is super useful on a day to day basis for both professionals and casual mobile users. However, it has a steep learning curve and is very difficult to get a hang of.
WidgetSoid is very useful. It allows users to make widgets for things they need from scratch. This makes the phone feel personalized and provides the user a different experience altogether.
The biggest problem this app faces is its learning curve. It is very difficult to use, with complicated layouts, a strangely outdated GUI and it takes time to get used to. This gets in the way of making widgets.

Very good app that comes packed with neat functionality and options. Has a friendly ui. Easy to learn and use. Have used widgetsoid since my android debut.
Toggles do not update properly to match status: however can't find another app that will either (galaxy s4 rooted mk2). Vertical widget option is unique.
location and aeroplane toggles now take you to a menu. That sucks. update for kitkat
Developer does not answer emails for bugs/requests and is not updating the app. I suggest to move to Power Toggles instead.
Nice variety of features and options. The app brings many features and options, from changing the label size to locking the screen by a single click. The design is a bit unprofessional (not too bad though, but needs to be improved), and the UX is a bit complicated... To many clicks to make a change, and after saving, it brings you back to the initial menu, so you have to go again through all the
Recently I got a Galaxy S5, found out lots of functions such as battery temp, lock screen switch not working any more.
