Remember Tagy for Android? It was a widget that could be thought of as a launcher, except it wasn’t your ordinary launcher (or widget?)

It presented you with a text-based grid from which you can launch applications, and while that bit of it alone was enough for me to give it a thumbs up, the fact that apps resized based on how much you used them was a bonus.

Now there’s Imgy, and it brings what everyone was requesting when I did my original review: the same app, except with icons instead of text.

It’ll allow you to bring in however many apps you want and have them resized based on usage just like Tagy. Imgy, however, goes a step further in its ability to do the same with a bookmarks widget and a contacts widget.

Your favorite apps, sites, and contacts will be displayed prominently based on how much you visit a particular site or contact a particular person. Things can get a bit messy if you add to much but it’s great if you don’t go overboard.

Be sure to read our review of Tagy to get an idea of how things work, and download Imgy in the Google Play Store here. The pro version of Imgy (which gives you the ability to have icons resized based on frequency of usage) is currently $.99 for a limited time only.
