New widgets are so upsetting :sob:
No dynamic change of height of widget based on content.
No scrolling.
No interactivity (you can’t mark things done without diving in app which is soooo bad).

Please, is this possible to bring the old widget back? The new one is just useless =(

Hi @lightshaft, thanks for using GoodTask.

I think you need to get used to it since it's the way iOS is headed. Maybe in iOS 15, it may gain some interactivity if they get enough feedback. :cry:

You may still use the previous one at the very bottom of the widget page but I can't assure you anything about the future since Apple may remove it anytime.

Thanks!

There is no way to add the old one =(

Hmm, it still shows on my devices even after fresh re-install. It seems like Apple may have already removed them on certain situations? I've seen in developer forum that they might remove them in the future but I'm not sure yet.

Deleted the new widget, restarted device for few times and now the old widget is back again! :partying_face:

That's the old widgets list. You have to hold down the screen so the apps show the delete x. Then tap the + in the top left corner to get the new widgets.

The idea was to get the old widget back =)
