    Hey, I was just posting regarding my experience with Dashboard X, I was wondering if anybody could relate because I don't seem to see any complaints about this tweak.

    Its with a few specific widgets that make my Iphone go into safe mode every time:

    -The Music Widget
    -The Jukebox Widget

    ^^ they display what song is showing, but if you are trying to pause/play the song or change the song from the widget, it will crash every time. I dont know if its because I am using spotify or whatever but does anybody else experience this?

    I think there was a clock widget I used to have that would make the iphone crash, I can't remember its name though. If there is any kind of fix to these widgets I'd appreciate it if you said, or if I might have a buggy version of the widgets maybe? Because from reviews like idownloadblog and opinionativereviewer- they don't mention at all these widgets crashing.

    Also post any other widgets here that might make the iphone crash would be appreciated. Am I the only one experiencing this?

    I don't have those issues with Dashboard X.

    I just wish I could find more selection of widgets :(

    I don't have any problems with Jukebox. No crashes and it works great. Are you running the newest versions of both? Did you try to contact the developer? Are they cracked versions?

    If you have lockinfo you can use any notification center addon or tweak as a widget on you springboard via Homescreen in LockInfo's settings.

    Umm I don't think I have cracked versions of them but I might. Isn't jukebox free? Its not because I use spotify?

    Hmm. It looks nice when it displays the song you are listening to but it makes my phone go to safe mode when i try to use any controls

    No it's not free. It being a cracked version might explain why you're having problems with it.

    I used the cracked version for a while and I didn't have any of the problems listed. In fact, I had zero problems at all.

    I primarily got Dashboard for the default weather widget. I paid for Jukebox, but removed it a couple weeks later. My reasons?

    • was not a fan of it showing song information despite nothing being played (after installing the update that claimed this was fixed)
    • I found myself accidentally clicking the song info and bringing up the music controls
    • Music controls consistently required multiple taps to work

    Other than that, Dashboard X has worked great. I occasionally get the "Weather Offline" message, but goes away after a few minutes.

    Does anyone know a way to make a widget act like the dock (i.e. stays on every page?)

    You can put it on each page in the same spot. That's what I did - very bottom of each page (there's a spot it won't go past b/c of the page dots) so they're all uniform on each page. Works like a charm.

    And for the weather issue - if you turn off and on again it should fix itself.
