Beautiful Widgets Version 5 Released, Adds Full Jelly Bean Support

Posted on Dec 4 2012 - 10:00am by Brad Ward

LevelUp Studio has just announced the release of Beautiful Widgets 5, which is a brand new version of their widget suite. Some new features in this latest version include full Jelly Bean support, including rich notifications, along with Android 4.2 specific features like lock screen widgets and the “Daydreams” feature. LevelUp Studio has also added a visual refresh button to many of their widgets and apps. As you can imagine, this has been a pretty big update, especially with the addition of a new forecast app and theme store. Users will be especially excited for the theme store, as there are endless amounts of widget customization options.

There are plenty of high-definition widget app’s out there, but you really won’t find the variety of customization anywhere else except for Beautiful Widgets. If you didn’t know, Beautiful Widgets has been the Google Editor’s Choice for a bit longer than a year now, and it’s actually been the #5 paid app in the Android Market (now Play Store) for the past three years. Hopefully that gives our readers a little bit of an idea how popular and robust this widget suite is. If you have $2.50 to shell out, I highly suggest taking a look at this suite before checking anything else out. With the new update that just released, this is truly one of the most robust widget suites on the Play Store right now.

Has anyone picked the Beautiful Widgets update yet? How are you liking it? Let us know in the comments!

    They have completly broken what used to be one of the best apps out there with the newest update. Don’t waste your time & MONEY getting this ap. Several of the clock/weather skins that I used are no longer there and it’s ugly now. I have no problem of making improvments, but PLEASE leave the old skins that people already use and like!!! Until this gets fixed I’ll be looking for another weather/clock ap to use on my phone.

    Take a look at HD Widgets, it’s pretty similar.

    Does anyone know how to adjust the weather options?!!? I’m lost. RIP to all my old skins as well.

    I loved this app and the update is awful! No themes I used are available. It’s so hard to navigate. Need to go back to other way!
