Shape Widget Free is a tool that lets you build home screen widgets of different shapes and sizes. It serves to enrich and beautify your home screen with widgets created with your own photo, shaping, framing, text label and launch target.

The built in smart image editor lets you move, scale, rotate or resize the photo you load before it is clipped to the desired shape. The editor background is set to be the wallpaper to let you preview the appearance of widget at home screen.
You may fill up or enclose the shape with color and width of your choice, or simply no framing at all.
You can also write your own text label with customizable size, color and alignment.
Finally, you can choose to launch any application or shortcut you like whenever the widget is clicked at home screen.

With the Widget Manager provided, you can view a listing of all created widgets together with their contents. It also allows you to do basic operations such as edit, refresh, renew or remove content.

Since the widget is editable after creation, you can get even more shapes and framings by working further on the image created. Just let your imagination works out the most amazing widget ever created for yourself !

    I'm one of those people who like to put all kinds of pretties on my homescreen. This app helps me do that. I'm looking forward to future editions with larger widgets both for the phone and the tablet. Fun app if you like to personalize as much as I do!

    It works well up to a certain resolution, I would really need it to work on a grid that works on a grid up to 8x8. I think with a bit of work this can be a incredible theming tool.
