Is there a Lapse homescreen widget?

Is there a LAPS home screen widget? This is a question that has been puzzling many iPhone users who are eager to access LAPS app directly from their home screen. In a recent video transcript, a user expressed their frustration with not being able to find a LAPS app widget on their iOS 16, iPhone 14 Pro device.

Upon tapping and holding the screen, the user expected to see the app icons jiggle, indicating the ability to search for and add a LAPS app widget. However, their search yielded no results. It appears that LAPS does not offer a home screen widget for iOS devices.

Interestingly, despite the absence of a home screen widget, LAPS does provide lock screen widgets. This feature allows users to conveniently access the LAPS camera directly from their lock screen. The user in the video expressed amusement at the instantaneous availability of a lock screen widget, as opposed to a home screen one.

To enable the LAPS lock screen widget, users can follow these steps:

  1. Swipe right to access the lock screen on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down to locate the "Edit" button at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Tap on "Edit" to enter the widget editing mode.
  4. Look for the LAPS widget among the available options and tap the "+" button next to it.
  5. Arrange the position of the LAPS widget by dragging it up or down the list.
  6. Tap "Done" to save your changes.

Once you have added the LAPS lock screen widget, you will be able to access the LAPS camera directly from your lock screen. This adds convenience and quick access to capturing important moments without having to unlock your device and search for the app.

While the absence of a home screen widget may be disappointing for some LAPS users, the availability of a lock screen widget provides an alternative way to quickly access the LAPS camera. As technology continues to evolve, it is not uncommon for app developers to prioritize certain features or interfaces based on user preferences and usage patterns.

It is recommended for LAPS users to stay updated with app updates and iOS releases, as future updates may introduce the desired home screen widget or other new features that enhance the overall user experience.
