When Apple released iOS 8, Launcher was one of the first apps that brought in the Today view widgets. Now, the developers behind Launcher are updating it with new Home Screen widgets for iOS 14. Launcher 5 will let you create custom widgets for your iPhone's home screen with different shortcuts to apps, contacts etc.

Apple already offers a variety of widgets with its native iOS apps, but they are mostly based on suggestions and not user choice. Launcher 5 lets you create your own widgets with the shortcuts you want like - phone number of a specific contact or a custom playlist.
