Beautiful Widgets 5.0 arrives in Google Play

Beautiful Widgets 5.0 is here and we couldn’t be more excited. As one of the first widgets for Android that truly hooked us, we’ve been fans since the debut. Today sees the 5th official release from the team, an update which seems mostly centered around Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Details include Daydream support, lock screen widgets, enhanced notifications, and more. If you’ve not spent any time with Beautiful Widgets then we recommend you cough up a couple of bucks and download the app.  You could do much, much worse for your money!

Download links, video, and photos after the break.

    A lot of people reviewing the app are complaining that they don’t have the option to place widgets. The reason is that the app has App to SD which doesn’t allow widgets. So if you run into this issue just go to the app info on your phone and click the Move to Phone button and it should resolve the issue.

    They have ruined one of the best apps available with the newest update. Several of the clock/weather skins that I used are no longer available. Until they fix this app, I’ll be looking elsewhere. Save your MONEY and don’t buy this ap.

    Crashes a lot. The previous version didn’t have this problem. I have a Motorola Droid Bionic with ICS. The company did release an updated version of Beautiful Widgets 5.0 shortly after release that made it crash a little bit less. It’s still not possible to get into the settings for the included live wallpaper. The Wallpaper Picker crashes. A good portion of the time when I tap on the widget to get a detailed weather forecast the widget crashes and restarts bringing the included live wallpaper down with it. I then have to go back into the wallpaper settings and reapply the wallpaper. I’ve tried booting my phone into recovery mode and wiping data/cache along with formatting the phone’s internal storage prior to reinstalling Beautiful Widgets 5.0. No luck. Hopefully the crash reports I’ve sent will help fix these problems soon. until then this is one big failure.
