    [APP] AppWidget Picker - Makes Selecting Widgets Simpler!

    Hate scrolling through all of your different sets of widgets? Then heres an app for you!

    boombuler over at XDA wrote this simple app that makes all of our lives easier. Its called AppWidgetPicker and is simple: it groups all of your widgets by packages. Once a widget with multiple sizes is selected, it displays another menu with all of the different choices.

    To use it just press menu>add>widgets (like adding regular widgets) and it should appear.

    Here's a screenshot to show you what it looks like..


    to install, either use ADB or Root Explorer (easiest) or Terminal Emulator

    1: Root Explorer.

    • download .apk to sdcard and navigate to using RE.
    • move apk to /system/app (mount to R/W to be able to paste)
    • install by clicking it.
    • change permissions to the following:
    • User: Read, Write; Group: Read; Others: Read
    • click save and restart phone

    2: Using ADB
    -I dont use adb so heres my best guess on how to use it. to set up adb, see link in my signature

    put the .apk on the root of the sdcard
    enter the following code:
    Code:
    Code:
    adb devices ##to make sure adb sees your device 
    adb remount 
    adb shell 
    cp /sdcard/appwidgetpicker-1.2.0.apk /system/app 
    ##if copy didnt work, try next line. if it did, skip next line## 
    add push appwidgetpicker-1.2.0.apk /system/app 
    adb shell chmod 644 system/app/appwidgetpicker-1.2.0.apk 
    adb reboot

    and it should be in place for it to use

    and for those wishing to use terminal emulator, make sure to have the apk in the root the sd card and type the following in the TE

    Code:
    cp /sdcard/appwidgetpicker-1.2.0.apk /system/app
    chmod 644 system/app/appwidgetpicker-1.2.0.apk

    attached below is the latest version (1.2.0)
    AppWidgetPicker-1.2.0.apk

    All I had to do for the installation with root explorer was move it to /system/app, change permissions, and reboot.

    Though this is a nice change from the cluttered old widget selector we had.

    Good find Abe!

    Wow this is cool! This might be a really dumb question, but i'll just ask. So after you move it to /system/app, did you not press it and click install(as it says in the OP)? Also, if i wanted the old widget selector back, i would just delete this apk file yes? Thanks!

    No, I didn't click install, and yes, deleting it would work just fine.
