If you’ve got an iPhone/iPad, here’s a challenge if you’re interested…

I’ve made an iOS widget that shows the current chart on the home screen.

It looks like this… when works:

Motivation behind this was that I don’t want to open an app each time just to check the chart. Instead, simply left-swipe the screen and here you go, the chart is shown, don’t even need to unlock the device.

Easier said than done — the widgets have severe memory limits and don’t allow for rich content. But it looks like I am finally getting there, the latest widget version seems to work on most devices! Yet I need a few more people to test — and here you can help me — and get the widget for your device!

What you have to do:
1. get the app (search for “time nomad” on the App Store, the app is free
2. open the app, close it
3. swipe left all the way to the Notification Centre and use “edit” at the bottom to activate the widget
4. check the widget displays content for both moon phase and current chart (tap “show more”)

Here is a visual of widget activation:

Let me know if any problems on your device. Especially if you have a larger “+” size screen like iPhone 6+ ,7+ ,8+ or iPhone X.

Otherwise, if it works, just enjoy. I find it super useful.
