An idea:
How about to make Android widget position not connected to web Dashboard one?

When I put line chart on dashboard, it looks OK, but in mobile app it breaks the look of it…


Hi @vedran.musica,

This is a bug/oversight on the part of the Android app.

While we do want pretty much all other data to sync between the web and mobile, we don’t want widget positioning to try and do so (because it will fail, due to different screen sizes and layouts). The iOS app already behaves in this way – it looks like the Android app needs work to maintain its own layout grid while still syncing any other changes from the web.
