In March we reported on a brand new jailbreak tweak called ProWidgets that launched an entire suite of widgets to the iOS S Notification Center. With today’s release of iOS 8, ProWidgets developer Alan Yip has launched a number of native widgets for the brand new working system. These new add-ons will assist you hold monitor of your calendar and to-do record, monitor the climate, and carry out a ton of helpful actions on the textual content saved in your clipboard.
The first of those is Agenda+, which you'll be able to see within the screenshots above. Agenda+ combines an inventory view of your calendar occasions with a abstract of your iOS Reminders. iOS sometimes breaks these two up into separate widgets, with the Calendar widget displaying a full timeline of your day (which may take up a variety of area relying on what number of occasions you've and the way late within the day they're).
The second widget Yip launched immediately is known as Forecast+. Where iOS H solely shows the forecast in a paragraph of textual content within the Today abstract, Forecast+ exhibits the upcoming climate with a visible fashion that’s rather more just like the inventory Weather software. You can use a compact view to save lots of area, or an expanded view that gives extra details about upcoming climate for 5 days.
Yip’s ultimate widget known as Paste+, and is likely one of the strongest instruments for managing your clipboard that you simply’ll discover within the Notification Center. It presents you with all kinds of actions you'll be able to carry out on the subsequent in your clipboard, your final saved photograph, wealthy textual content, URLs, and extra.
You can use it to start out a telephone or FaceTime name, Google a time period, submit to a social community, open hyperlinks in Safari, translate textual content by way of Google Translate, add pictures to providers like Imgur and Dropbox, search Wikipedia, discover a map, create an Evernote entry, save to a learn-later service, and far, far more.
Unfortunately as a result of useful resource limitations, the widget can’t deal with movies or photographs taken utilizing the iPhone digital camera since they’re too giant. However, photographs saved from the online or different sources with a smaller file measurement ought to work simply nice. Even with these limitations, it’s nonetheless an extremely highly effective software for shortly appearing on textual content and pictures.
