iOS widgets on iPad
The widgets on the iPad can only be arranged to the left side of the display. A new concept by “A Better Computer Trailer” shows us how the limitation can be overcome by a series of small changes. Furthermore, the concept makes us realize how cool iOS styled Home screen widgets would look on the iPad.
The concept artist talks about some limitations when it comes to the iPad. He remarks about how icons are arranged differently on the iPad’s of different sizes. Due to this reason, the spacing between icons varies depending on the model. That’s not all, the spacing between icon is dynamic and changes whenever the tablet switches from landscape mode to portrait mode. The problem is non-existent on the iPhone as the Home screen doesn’t support landscape mode.
Further, into the video, the concept artist showcases how well the iOS Home screen fits in iPad despite the challenges. This can be achieved by making minor changes in the way icons behave. It also proves that the icon grid on the iPad is not fixed in any sense.
