Custom Widget Creation

 

We bring you a new video on how to design a custom widget within ADW Launcher 2 [Beta].

Make sure you install at least version 2.0.1.14 (you can check your build version inside ADW Advanced Setting) as we’ve fixed a small refreshing issue inside the editor on anchored layers.

We hope it serves as inspiration for you to start creating your own widgets! We can’t wait to see your creations ūüėČ

Also, you can download the template file below, so you can see yourself the end result and tweak it to your likeness.
