Tagy is an appwidget that allows you to place minimalistic text shortcuts in your homescreen
Perhaps you're fed up of placing shortcut icons to your app, bookmarks and contacts here and there. If you're a fond of minimalistic style you should take at glance at Tagy.
It allows you to set different size widgets made up but a bunch of words that are shortcuts to your favorite apps, bookmarks and contacts. For example: you can select a specific widget size - there are up to 4 for each category (apps, bookmarks and contacts), that's it, 12 total - select the apps, bookmarks or contacts you want to be displayed, select text and background color, choose to resize tags, adjust colors or randomize tags. Finally click back to see your creations. You can place as many widgets as you want, fill up your homescreen if you like.
Keep in mind that this is a 10-day trial. Afterwards, you will have to upgrade to the Unlocker version to keep using the app.
An original way to display shortcuts that, moreover, drains less battery. Recommendable.
Tagy main features:
• Add any number of apps, bookmarks and contacts to the tag cloud.
• Tags will grow or shrink based on click frequency, allowing important items to stand out and unimportant items to fade.

Needs fonts and a few other customization options.
Awesome idea overall.
Word clouds can be beautiful.
I can access apps faster so beautiful
This is one of those rare things which works exactly as well as you'd hoped it would.
I rarely rate apps but this one has stars from me.. Simple, fun & easy to use.. I love the way the apps used most change appearance upon tap.. Thanks Tagy!
It would take this widget over the top if you could choose custom fonts! Also, it would be nice to be able to reorganize the tags by dragging them around. Even without these, this is a very handy and unique widget to have!
