Making the Most of Widgets with Branch

Apple’s release of iOS 14 this fall brought one of the biggest visual changes to the iPhone’s interface yet: newly redesigned Home Screen options and revamped widgets. You can now glance at the most important aspects of your favorite apps and take action straight from your home screen—no app opening required.

As you update your iPhone and start to plan and design your new layout (this article offers up some great iOS home screen inspo), don’t forget to work your favorite financial app into your new aesthetic. With the Branch app, you can choose among small, medium, and large widgets in both light and dark mode—making it easy to accommodate any home screen layout you choose.

One of the best aspects of the Branch widget is that it gives you quick visibility into your spending. The medium and large-sized widgets display a list of your most recent transactions, and all of the widget options provide you with your current balance. You’ll be able to quickly see your financial standing and discover if you need to add more funds. If so, you can do that straight from your Branch widget, too, by clicking the “Add Funds” button.

In a bind and need Instant Pay? The medium and large-sized widgets keep you updated on your advance status without having to check into your app.

At Branch, we’re always looking for ways to help you on your journey to financial wellness. With widgets, you’ll have quicker access to your account and an at-a-glance peek at your financial status. We think that when you know where you stand, you’re able to make more confident financial decisions and feel more financially secure.
