Apps use widgets in a variety of ways, but what about a tool to help you keep any sort of information right in your Today View? With PhotoLink, the widget for photos and web pages, you've got that.

Add photos in PhotoLink. Adding a photo to a widget is easy with the share sheet extension.

Type in your web page, and it's a widget

Type in your web page, and it's a widget. PhotoLink will automatically refresh your web page when it changes, so you just have to check your widgets.

Viewing your widgets. Once your widgets are created, just add them to the Today View so you can check them when you want to.

Viewing your widgets

What is it about?

With PhotoLink, you generate personalized widgets that provide you with all the information you need at your fingertips. Whether it's a photograph or a note, you can insert it into a widget for your Today View, and have it close at hand.

Why we love it

PhotoLink fills a gap that's been present in the Today View almost since day one. The fact that you can put photographs and web pages in your Today View using this app is quite nice. When you have your widgets created, you'll want to enable them. Just go to the Today View, and scroll to the bottom of your active widgets. Tap Edit, and find your PhotoLink widgets. Then tap the green plus sign next to the one you want to add. Once you've done that, you can just check the Today View to review your notes or photographs, or check on the web page you've made a widget from. It takes about 48 hours for PhotoLink to notify you that a web page has changed, but an in-app purchase removes that limitation. You're also able to group widgets in Photo Link. This is a terrific way to keep them organized, so when you want to update or change them it's easy to find the one you want to remove or modify. PhotoLink is ad-supported and limits how many widgets you can have, at least for the free version. However, a modest in-app purchase will remove the ads and allow you to have more widgets available to you.
