One of the most significant changes in iOS 14 is the addition of desktop widgets.

So if you want your widgets to adapt to your home screen style while also meeting functional requirements, I suggest you use Flex Widgets. Section application.

Although according to the iOS specification, Flex Widgets only provides 3 sizes of widget templates, it is up to you to decide what material to put in the template, how much to arrange, and which interaction to trigger. There are 7 types of built-in materials in the application, including fixed materials such as text emoji borders, photo album materials, clock dials, calendar schedules, weather information, heartbeat records, and interactive buttons. You can mix and match according to your needs. For each material, you can also adjust the font, font size, color, display rules, data source, etc., to ensure that it can satisfy you in terms of display style and functionality.

Since there may be complex material arrangements in a single component, Flex Widgets also provides a layer-like function for component editing. Click the layer button in the upper right corner, you can clearly understand the materials currently in use, and you can quickly adjust the background color and gradient style.

Flex Widgets has many functions and a high degree of DIY freedom. You may be confused when you first encounter it. For this reason, the third column of the application can give you some Inspiration. There are some functional components present here, and you can develop your “DIY course” on the basis of these components and customize them step by step.
