I have not added Widget support to Tap Forms at the moment. I was thinking about it at some point but wasn’t quite sure what people would use it for. Since forms can be so varied and complex, I’m not sure that I’d be able to represent them all in a widget.
When Apple redid the widgets in iOS 14, they also took away a lot of the interactivity of the widgets as well. That means all it could do is display some information and when you tap on it, it takes you to the app. It was sad that they seriously nerfed the previously fully interactive capabilities of the widgets to present these read only views. The older widget style was a little more dynamic and I think that could have been powerful for Tap Forms for like a quick entry form but I don’t think that is possible with the new one.
I was thinking about this today and I think a possible use case would be similar to what the calendar does in merely displaying a list of events that perhaps changes over time. I don’t think the shopping list would work (which is a shame, I’d like it to) because the widgets are read only but I was thinking of my meal planner and a widget displaying a saved search that was set to items matching today’s date. The meal planner is in a sense a calendar use case with breakfast/lunch/dinner loosely aligned to time. One could do an “up next” style use case with some extra functionality in the saved search system.
To make this work would require re-evaluation of saved searches periodically to feed the widget but I think that could be somewhat reasonable.
In terms of rendering, I’d reuse the SCLV style row format.
