Motorola Widget app fix after 21 April update

2021-04-21, 13:05 PM

Hi,

 

Motorola Widget app after April 21st update has completely extended the classic and pro theme icon to 5x3, it hardly enters the display anymore... please correct it.

 

Regards

Hi Tom,


yes the new version is 4.05.18, the info indicates 3x3 for classic and pro theme, but on the home 5x6 grid (obviously all stock standard Motorola Edge) the widget remain fixed vertically with empty space (previously it was not so).

 

 

Thanks

Thanks for the screenshot and further explanation. I think there is some confusion. The widget as shown in your screenshot is actually taking up 3x3 as described. 

See my screenshot below. I have my phone also set to 5x6 grid. As you can see by the chrome icons the widget is taking up exactly 3x3. The calendar shortcuts fill in the rest of the available spots showing the full grid. I hope that makes sense.

Hello. I'd like to get some more information from you regarding this. I didn't update the Moto Widget yet from the play store.

The stock Moto Widget has the following options for widgets/sizes

  • Beyond 3x3
  • Classic 3x3
  • Clean 5x3

I then took the update from the Play Store (version 4.05.18) and checked again. I still have the same 3 options/sizes for the Moto Widget. I don't see any changes to the widgets/sizes after the update. 

 

Are you using the stock launcher or 3rd party?

Do you have your display or font sizes set to anything but the default (if so, what do you have them set to)?

Can you take a screenshot of the widgets panel showing the sizes as well as how they are fitting on your screen?

 

Thanks,

Tom

Ok Tom,

 

now I understand, with the 5x5 grid the widget becomes 3x2 (computer oddities).

 

Bye

No worries, yeah they change sizes based on the grid size you choose with the theme. I didn't even realize that until I started looking into this topic. Thanks for that, we both learned something with this one.

Yes, really!! But it seems really strange that on the 5x6 grid the widget increases :-\ , effectively stealing the row you wanted to earn in the layout ... really unreasonable.

If one day the developer takes care of better managing the size, he/she can only improve the app.

It's a sin (as P.S.B. said) that the quality of certain software, at times, compromises the good design and hardware work done on your devices :-P
