Android Widget Help Needed


(Steven) #1

I myself have IOS and love the ability to be able to determine how many routines show up on my widget for SmartThings.
I am trying to setup a widget for my brother on his Android and was able to add the SmartThings widget but I don’t see any place that I can change how many of the actual routines show up on that widget. Is that possible with Android?

If you want to use the official widget, see:

Note that you have to reboot the phone before the widgets will show up.

Many people with android phones prefer to use the paid third-party app, sharptools, which gives you a lot more choices about widgets

Thanks for the reply. I got the widget on the Android I just don’t like how it is compared to IOS. I will look into Sharptools.

After installing it I like it much better. I can just create a widget for each routine and then create a folder to put them in. MUCH BETTER.
I’ll be spending a couple dollars to keep that feature.
