Game Widgets for iPhone makes it easy to discover and track your favorite releases


Following up on the popular Nintendo Switch companion app Switch Buddy, indie developer Filip Němeček has released his latest app to let you track video game releases for any platform. Game Buddy offers a nice experience to discover new titles plus three handy widgets in multiple sizes to keep track of upcoming video game launches.

Game Widgets has a clean and simple UI with a curated list of big titles coming soon at the top followed by your favorites and upcoming games below.

There’s a search tool built-in for discovery with game details including screenshots and trailers. And there are three different types of widgets for a slick Home Screen countdown experience on your iPhone.

Game Widgets features

  • Games discovery powered by IGDB
  • Filtering by platforms
  • Handles release dates based on user’s region
  • Three widget types: Release countdown, calendar, Up next

Here’s how FIlip describes the three widgets:

Countdown widget

Favorited games can be displayed in a countdown widget – perfect for eagerly anticipating new games – available in small and medium sizes.
