Focus on Community: AppWidgetPicker

For those of you that like tricking out your home screen, you know widgets are a must. However, many of you might have noticed that having a lot of widgets means your long press widget menu is long and clustered. Thankfully,  boombuler over at xda has thought up a solution.

Enter AppWidgetPicker. Looking at the screenshot, you might notice that you don’t see “Grooveshark 4×1,” “Grooveshark 4×2,” etc. Instead, you’ll notice the subtle “(x widgets).” For those of you who like staying organized this install is an absolute must. You’ll no longer have to sort through 12 different minimalistic text widgets in order to get down to your Pandora widget. It’s such a simple concept and boombuler pulls it off so well. The installation is pretty simple and it will work with all non-sense based launchers.

Hit up the thread on xda to see more! Thanks again boombuler!

      Dr,
      I’m actually pretty certain he released this before CM did. I think CM even gave him credit when they incorporated it

    @Andrew you are right, boombuler created this and CM7 (and many, many other roms) have incorporated it into their roms. It’s one of those must-have apps for rooted non-sense roms IMHO.

    I kanged from CM? ;-) Thx for this funny start of the day!

    Hope you all like this hacky little piece of code!
