KWGT Kustom Widget Maker is a free Android app to create custom home screen widgets. Make your home screen look astonishing by creating widgets of your own choice. Unlike other widget maker apps for Android, this one comes with tons of editing tools and features which we will discuss below. Use the WYSIWYG editor for making custom designs and add various elements such as signal indicator, battery icon, text, shapes, images, calendar, and much more to the widgets.

The app interface is pretty simple to understand and use. It comes with many pre-installed presets which you can use and modify with the editor. Whatever is on your mind, you can simply put them on your phone’s home screen with the help of “KWGT Kustom Widget Maker”. Personally, I think this app is awesome as you can create widgets for a live map, customized clocks, storage and battery meter, music player shortcuts, etc.
