WidgetPet, new virtual care game
The devs can be contacted by going to https://www.widgetpet.com/contact/
P.s. You cannot create the widget until you start incubating a pet.
So im loving this game so far.
Are the playdates/games accessible?
I tried and wasnt sure what was going on.
I don’t think they are accessible which is unfortunate
I sent the devs an email about this. I don’t expect to hear anything until at least Monday, but I will keep you all posted. If there’s anything else, you can visit the WidgetPets website and complete the contact form.
How do I make a widget for the game? I have never used them before. Thanks for any help
Aside their being a widget on the homescreen, what makes this app any different than the other 100 billion pet care apps out there? That's not me trying to be an ass wipe about this, though it may come across that way. Let me be transparent to say that isn't at all my intentions. It just sounds to me like this is a total re-creation of the same wheel that's been spinning for several years now. I'm willing to stand corrected though. If I'm gonna download an app, me personally, it's gonna need to be something unique enough to jump out at me and say, this is a one of a kind app. In other words, convince me! What makes your app as a dev worth me using instead of the other app I already have which does the same exact thing. Again, not trying to be a jerk here. It's probably coming off that way I'm sure, but I am truly asking this out of curiosity. Seriously, what makes it any different? I get the widget thing, but is that it?
If you are referring to Hatchi, then the only major difference is that this one is somewhat accessible and still being worked on. The only other thing is that the pets have dialog text, which offers clues about their moods.
Select any app on your home screen, and swipe to activate edit mode in the traditional ways. At the top, you should see add widget. Double tap that, scroll through the options until you find the one for the app. Double tap it, then hit add widget, then hit done.
How do you get more coins? The Play dates don’t seem to be accessible
I followed the instructions, but couldn’t find any option. So what do I do now? Thanks anyway for your help
You have to create a pet first.
I love the game and I wanted sound effects and music. I also would like to see more pets added. I did everything you said and still didn’t work.
So far, I'm liking this game, but how do we earn coins to buy supplies for our pets? The play dates aren't accessable with voiceover. We can't take our pets on play dates. I was able to do it with sighted help, but a sightd person may not always be around.
The devs responded and said they will look into ways to fix it. Hopefully there will be a fix and an update soon.
Does anyone plan to add this game to the directory? I'm about to try it out and if no one does, I'll probably do it myself.
I wasn’t sure what accessibility rating to give it.
If I were you, I'd go for the option that says this app is mostly accessible with voice-over and most buttons are clearly labelled.
I’ve had this game on my iPhone for a few days now, & am not having any issues.
The play dates are automated.
You, as the user, just have to click the game you want to play, & let it run.
They’re very short.
I'm late seeing all answers to my question but im seeing all answers. Thanks for telling me this. I had no idea it was automated. Ive already earned coins.
The only games I seem to win, are when my opponents quit. Otherwise, I lose.
Now that I know the play dates don't need any user interaction, I just send my pet on a play date and sit back while I wait for it to be over. Winning aginst the other pet that is chosen for your pet to play against seems to be ranom. I've won a few games, lost a few, and had the other pet leave the game.
They should say this in description, or somewhere in the app. about those play dates.
The only way to win is if your opponent leaves the game. While I understand this is random, it does not actually mean that your pets beat the other pet.
There fun but, there’s nothing too do. I’m already on the gold level and I want more to do. I don’t know what the other pets are? Please tell the dev that the adds are hard to close. When I’m trying to get a treat, I have to close the app, just to get out of the add. Then I’ll lose my treat.Also can they add more treats for a variety, instead of only one choice.
I also found out something strange. While the players are making their moves, there is a slight vibration. I've noticed that if you turn off VoiceOver and tap around on the screen, you can make the vibrations go faster, indicating clearly that we must have some kind of control in the game.
Before we start thinking of new games, let's just get some clarification on whether these games are playable in the first place. As far as ads go, these are often third-party issues and not necessarily controlled by the developer. It's better to just get the ad removal.
I am on platinum level with all of my pets. Is there anything to do aside from attempting the mini games? It gets kind of boring when all you are able to do or feed water and love
To tell you the truth, I use the app and not the widget. From within the app, go to options and there is a place where you can send your pet to certain areas. Can't remember what its called. Other than that, I'm afraid that's about it.
Yeah, I know exactly what you’re talking about. That is one thing to do, but as the player you don’t seem to get much out of it. Like no points or anything noticeably different with your pet. I really hope they add more actionable things to do
As long as the new actions are playable, I'll have no issues.
When I get three gift boxes to choose from, it seems like no matter which one I choose I always get vaccinations. Anyone else get anything other than vaccinations when clicking on the gifts?
Choose 2. Boxes 1 and 3 are always vaccinations. 2 can contain anything from medicine to coins.
How do you activate more gifts?
the subject says it all, so read. I might be interested someday, ... if there's dragons and/or Digimon type things. it sounds as though that's what's going on here, raising a little digital monster ... so cute. anyway, what if you choose not to create the wigit thing, AS A PERSON WITH VISUAL IMPAIRMENTS. I wouldn't be able to see it anyway, so it'd be no use unless VoiceOver could describe it somehow.
Creating a widget is optional, it is still possible to play without it.
It's okay for an app with VoiceOver support. however, the videos don't work/close as VO can't see them. withought caring actions, what can be done for your animal? don't have any caring actions right now/used em all up. it's okay for a life sim, though/might be useful for teaching somehow. wish it had sound effects, though/a lot better than that junk on Blindfold Games series of apps.
