If you’re into theming your homescreen, then the chances are you’ve probably heard of KWGT (Kustom Widget). If you haven’t, KWGT is an app which allows you to design your own widgets or download pre-made packs from the Play Store. One of our favourite new widget packs is Polar Widgets, which is now available in beta through Google Play early access.
I’ve had the privilege of testing Polar Widgets before release and so while they have only been on Google Play for less than a week, I can already attest to their quality. A particularly nice touch is the concept of themed widgets. These are upcoming new widget styles which are designed to complement popular icon packs. Some Fuchsia themed widgets are also in the works.
Currently there are 12 widgets available but I’m assured that there are plenty more on the way. Polar Widgets creator Aiden Patrick has been providing very regular updates with new additions and improvements based on community suggestions. It’s great to see a developer listening to feedback and delivering what users want!
If these widgets pique your interest, they’re available to purchase on Google Play for just 89p. Just go to the app-box we’ve included an at the bottom of this article. However, as mentioned, this pack is made for KWGT and so to use these widgets a copy of Kustom Widget Pro is also required. Nova Launcher is recommended, however they should still work just fine on any other launcher of your choice.
Fancy trying out Polar Widgets for free? Well you might just be in luck! We are currently running a giveaway over on Google+ where you have the chance to win a code allowing you to nab yourself a copy for free. Instructions on how to enter can be found in this post. Good luck!
