Descriptions


Get vehicle OBD engine information as a widget on your home screen!

This is an add-on for Torque Pro, the OBD2 car app for monitoring your vehicle engine management data. You can find Torque on the Android Market

It lets you display the various dials and widgets from the app on your android homescreen! Monitor all the standard OBD2 sensors as you can in the app such as coolant, RPM/Revs, Transmission temperature*, knock retard*, MPG, HP and Torque!

For example, you could have a trip fuel cost widget displayed on your homescreen, showing your total trips fuel cost (perfect for when your kids are using dads taxi!)

There is an on / off toggle widget that you can also add which will pause the homescreen widget updates and to control the startup of Torque itself. Turn the widget off, Torque will shutdown, turn the widget on and Torque will start up automatically.

This widget needs the Torque OBD app, and will automatically start Torque to run in the background as a service (the app has been optimised to be very power efficient). It will then automatically connect to your vehicle when you start a journey and start showing information!

Supports phones, tablets, and tablets running honeycomb

Please note: Using launchers like ADWLauncher/TouchWiz may result in slow updates of the widget, the developers of those launchers will need to fix their code so it can update the widget faster. Works fast with the default launcher that comes with Android

    Great Applicatopn I use this app daily, only thing that's missing is the ability to have graph widgets, as I found these to be the most accurate for things such as boost and afr Full Review

    These widgets are close to perfect. I just don't like the lack of customization for the widgets. Like, the "trip time" is awesome, but it only counts/displays seconds. It should be smart enough to switch to minutes, and hours on a long trip. Like saying 5m 2s, instead of 300s. If more customization was added to allow for this, it would be perfect. (looks awesome on my NU3001 car head unit otherwise) Full Review

    Awesome WHEN it works Using Torque on a 7" tablet I use solely as a car tablet. The Torque app works great! However these widgets work only 35% of the time. They look great on my homescreen when they are working but not worth buying to only have them work occasionally. The switch widget is pointless and has no affect. I leave Torque running pretty much all the time. The widgets just randomly decide to work then decide not to work again for a while. Full Review

    PLEASE UPDATE These widgets are great in theory, but he seems to have abandoned it. The last update was for Honeycomb OS and it seems to force close itself 100% of the time. I'd pay 10 bucks for these widgets. If they actually worked. Get your refund until then! Full Review

    Please Don't Stop Development Ian, I hope you read these :) Thank you for the update! The widgets are now following the theme for me. Now that it is working perfectly, we need to introduce more features.. :D Need ability to customize the gauges like within Torque, . Can you make a Display Configuration for the widgets? Using Nova Launcher and Torque Widgets, I have been able to really make a really awesome layout. Cheers!! Full Review

    Doesn't work on Galaxy Tab 7.7 Works well. Sometimes certain widgets get stuck and don't update for a while, but I don't know if this is due to the app or my engine ECU Full Review

    Does not work I paid for an app that does not work. Been using torque (paid version) for a while nowĺ and am disappointed with the widget. No matter what I do nothing happens. The main app has its issues but overall works most of the time. Using on galaxy note 2. Please fix. Tks Full Review

    Very handy when used in combination with Overlays. I wish there was a way to have Tasker change the OBD Toggle widget programmatically though. Right now I have to use Greenify + xposed framework to force Torque Widget to hibernate to prevent it launching Torque every few seconds when I disconnect the OBD adapter from the car. My samsung S3 has the issue where if wifi and bluetooth are enabled, and Torque wakes up to try to connect to the OBD adapter, I lose all network data. Full Review

    Widgets don't update Not sure if it's Android 4.4.4 or what have a play edition Moto G as soon as Widgets are placed they never update again, show whatever the data was when placed and once phone is restarted they say no data, no matter what happens in Torque app. Full Review

    Widgets Too Big It works, on my chinese tablet, but the problem is widgets are way too big, I wish I could choose small ones, there are two sizes only and the small size takes half the screen, the big one won't fit, it's a nice app just need to put smaller sizes. Full Review

    Used to work fine ... With china tablet and china elm bluetooth adapter. Ppl who are giving bad reviews have no ideea what are talking about LE: Since the latest (4-6) updates on the main app, the widgets are freezing data from time to time, even while car engine is working and obd connection to ecu is enabled. Also on short trip breaks (car engine stopped) from 5 seconds to 5 minutes or more the data on widgets also freezes and the toggle on/off widget must be activated in order to get live data again. Unfortunately, this resets the trips data collected so far (avg speed, trip consumption ... etc) I wish there were more options rather than just to toggle data reading on/off ... for instance: option to reset trip readings (manually, rather than auto as it is now), option to set the break times bigger than 10 minutes as it is now ... option to reset each widgets collected data so far by long pres on the specific dial (for ex: long time average fuel consumption can only be reset by going in the main app ... which takes to much time) This used to be a great app for me, I also have the pro torque installed, but now it's just a source of great anointment, when all the data on widgets is frozen ..

    Slow Slow to update and slow to refresh once you come back to home screen. The on/off widget is tricky to use also. Sometimes it will work, sometimes it ignores your request. Not good companion to the actual Torque Pro application. Full Review

    5 Stars for ENTIRE Torque People posting 1 star either have no idea how Torque Pro operates or have no idea what they are doing. The Torque Pro app and all the add-ons work perfectly when set up correctly. Read the manuals, do your research, have a quality BT adapter and you will have no issues. This coming from a daily user of both the app and the widgets. Samsung Captivate JB 4.1 Keep up the great work IH - much appreciated. Full Review
