The phone icon does not work. I have tried downloading multiple profiles from different themes and the shortcut is giving me an error on each one I’ve tried, please fix this!
Let me preface this review by saying I do like the concept behind this app and the aesthetic options within it to customize the look and feel your phone however the convoluted execution is severely lacking.
Yes, you can use the free version however you can only export five apps which is not told to you beforehand. Also not explained before hand, is that you need to add the wallpaper and widget that you selected from your theme manually. In order to add the icons you need to download a profile that shows in your phone settings…fine simple enough…but all it does is place duplicate of the original app on your phone, the Themify apps are just aesthetically pleasing shortcuts to the original app. It opens a Safari shortcut a split second before the actual app itself opens. So, you have to re-locate all the native apps to make room for the Themify icons—deciding what you want to do with them. For me, I just moved them all to other home screens. This took over an hour and I’m still customizing it on day 2.
Also, every app cannot be converted to a Themify app. Which if you think about it, is probably to be expected…For example, Microsoft Teams and Outlook has no Themify icons. Microsoft was probably not with the foolishness.
Don’t even get me started on if you organize your apps in folders!
Someone might say, “well why didn’t you just delete it”? My answer, simply I haven’t figured out how I am too far down this rabbit hole of customizing my phone to now reverse all of the work that I had to do to perform what this app promised. But as a marketing professional I must say kudos to Themify for putting out great click bait and getting ppl like myself to use and pay for its app features. 👏🏽
First I’ll start with the pros! I’ve had this app for a while now, and the icons are really cute. There is a variety of themes you can use for free, which I really like. Adding the icons and widgets to the home screen is pretty simple as well. I’ve tried many different apps, yet I always come back to this one. It’s very simple, cute, and fun! The backgrounds are super cute as well! There isn’t really much to complain about; however there is a reason why I gave this app a 4-star rating. Some of the cons to this app are they don’t have any widgets for games, so to make it look good you have to remove them from the home screen, or at least put them on a different page. When you click on the icons itself, it brings up the Themify app for a split second, then brings you to the app. It’s kinda frustrating at first, but eventually I got used to it. Overall, this app is really great if you’re wanting a cute home screen without paying. I’ve never paid for the subscription so I can’t say whether it’s worth it or not. If there was a way to fix where it brings up the Themify app for a split second, and add widgets to games, then I think this app would deserve a 5-star rating! Thank you for your time in reading this review! I hope it helps!
It straight up asks you to pick 3 categories that you like and then proceeds to show you everything you didn’t pick. For example I picked video games cinema and dark or some other category and it starts showing me sports and boomer wallpapers like instead of a white background and it says supreme it says super dad. Don’t forget the limitless Facebook mom backgrounds and “themes” they have like cats with extra extra large glasses, pictures of coffee machines that say “but first coffee” and just random pictures of Ireland and places around the world. Then countless more wallpapers that still didn’t fit the category’s I chose and if that wasn’t bad enough there isn’t even a search option to search custom wallpapers instead I get to have some dude from 500 B.C in a suit. Lastly while your looking for a wallpaper you have this little star and some bubbles in the top showing and constantly reminding you that you should or could pay for the app monthly.
It’s really cool and fun use like my Home Screen is MWA beautiful lol but the widget thing won’t pop up for some reason and will just be a gray screen and my widgets are pretty so I don’t wanna delete it an redownload it an it does get annoying when u want one of them but cost money but most don’t :) and I have read some reviews saying they can’t get in without paying u can actually when u first open it, it will say buy premium bla bla bla but there’s a lil X in the corner and all you have to do is CLICCCKK 😅 but after all it’s pretttty cool maybe u should get it haha but u don’t have to if u don’t want to your choice. Have an AMAZING day peace ✌🏾
At first, when it asked me to pay, I was annoyed. But then I noticed the tiny little X at the top of the screen and it opened me to a world of IOS wallpapers. Installing them onto your phone is so easy. I redid my entire wallpaper in an hour with this cute hippy vibe that matches my room and car. In the past, I would use widgetsmith and it would take hours to make a home screen and most the time the colors weren’t right. Not with this one! It even matches the app up to its correct icon picture so you hardly have to do anything other than hit “add to home screen”
Love this, will be using again.
i wish that they would add a search bar so you
could just search for the ones ur looking for. and i wish that they could add like collages and not pay for the rest of the apps. and also maybe add some more photos, categories and stuff like that i mean you could just go on to
google and find good wallpapers. and maybe if y’all are making us pay at least try to get a deal with the trademarked ones. and maybe give us more options to do on the make ur own one, like habe an option and making a collage. so yea that’s all i have to say
Downside : I am kinda upset that I need to do one app at a time and have to buy premium to do it altogether or when I go to the apps category and find some cute ones but it doesn’t come with a wallpaper and I have to find one. Plus I have to do it through safari which is also kinda irritating. Upside : Very cute backgrounds and completely free! I can make my iPhone or iPad look very adorable and fit my aesthetic for the price of nothing . Overall I’d rate it a 3 / 5! Would definitely recommend!
First of all when I was first getting the app I saw the premium page but when I opened my eyes 👁👁, I saw the tiny X on the top Left corner, that was for people who are saying you can’t use the app without paying open Your eyes. Anyways I was in awe when I saw all the WONDERFUL THEMES there is also a create your own theme but let’s not get into that. Themify’s a great app and you should get it and decorate your your Home Screen and look for the X when you first get the app that’s all. 5/5!
The app may have had limited free options at one time but that is not the case now. You are given a 3 day free trial and then you must commit to a plan. There is nowhere that allows you to use a limited number of options for free. I respect that developers need to be paid but state upfront that it is a limited free trial and after that there is a fee. Don’t waste people’s time downloading only to see it is a few app. I gave one star because dishonesty doesn’t rate anything above that
One reviewer calling everyone stupid but this app is misleading . It is NOT free. Yes there is an X that you can tap to get to the themes and Wall papers but once you actually pick the theme that you THINK is free. And go to set it. It’ll instantly throw another payment in your face and this time you can just hit the X and all is set. It’ll ask for $9.99 constantly and WONT install the theme unless you do pay or do the free trial . Pathetic and misleading .
