For users who find stock iOS widgets basic or unhelpful, there is a new app on the market that offers fully customizable widgets. Power Widgets is a free app that gives users full creative control over their home screen with the tools to help them create both informative and visually appealing widgets.
The app uses Flows to collect data which is used to power the widget. There are also tons of Data Sources users can use to easily access information from across the internet like social media posts, weather information, news articles, and more.
